Jaakko Eino Kalevi Rides Off Into The Sunset With Ultraflex’s “Never Forget My Baby”

If you know about Ultraflex, you know that two things feature prominently in their cosmology – disco and sports. But what if, what if, one of their songs left it all behind and ran off into the country to start a new life out there? Well, all these questionings and imaginings come into focus thanks to Finland’s Jaakko Eino Kalevi, who has reworked their single Never Forget My Baby into a Jaakko Eino Kalevi Pastoral Rodeo Remix. Never Forget My Baby is probably the poppiest moment on their recent debut album Visions Of Ultraflex, and its abundance of melody is put to good use here. The thump and beat of the original is gone, and instead the song drifts and whispers like the breeze on the prairie, and paints a scene of the sun sinking down past the distant horizon,  the vastness of the plains, and the stars spinning overhead in an endless sky. Ultraflex say “Jaakko taught us that ‘if you can’t convince them, confuse them’. And we were definitely confused when we first heard his ‘Pastoral Rodeo Remix’. With time we’ve grown convinced, by now you might even say we’re believers”.
