MP3: Jern Eye – “Get Down Remix” Feat. The Pharcyde, Prod. Keelay & Zaire Jern Eye Teams Up With Legendary Pharcyde To Remix Vision’s Lead Single
Following the success of Jern Eye’s lead single, “Get Down,” as well as the song’s energetic video, the Bay Area emcee is proud to release the official remix for the club-oriented single. The “Get Down Remix,” featuring fellow California natives and hip-hop legends, The Pharcyde, offers a fresh breath to a song already considered a fan favorite by many. While the basic elements of a James Brown sample and a raw, acoustic drumbeat, courtesy of fellow MYX Music Label producer duo Keelay & Zaire, remain untouched, the addition of such a talented and well-known group pushes the track to a new level, highlighting The Pharcyde’s effortless energy and flair alongside a brand new verse from Jern full of confident braggadocio. “A little sick, so the talk’s slick,” begins Jern, chiming in later, “No antics, the rep’s so massive/ I ain’t no joke, no game, no slapstick.” Working with The Pharcyde was a pleasure for Jern, whose own style is continuously inspired by the west coast legends’ fluidity and power. “The Pharcyde has always been one of my favorite hip-hop groups,” says Jern. “The energy and fun they put into their music has inspired a lot of what I do in my own music, so it was only natural to get them on board to do a remix for ‘Get Down’. I felt like the song was perfect for them, and would really bring out that animated energy they’re known for.”
Jern Eye’s sophomore album, Vision, is now available via MYX Music Label.

Los Angeles native Jern Eye began crafting his skills early on at freestyle battles in famous L.A. clubs. Jern formed the staple west coast group, Lunar Heights, with friend and fellow emcee Spear Of The Nation shortly after high school, and the group eventually migrated north to Oakland to join the Bay Area’s flourishing independent hip-hop scene. Once in the Bay, the group was joined by Khai Sharrieff as they began making a name for themselves opening for a number of well known groups, including Crown City Rockers, The Pharcyde, The Procussions, and more. The group subsequently released their solo effort, Crescent Moon, to high acclaim. Jern followed three years later with his solo debut, Authentic Vintage, in 2006, and toured with Hieroglyphics and Living Legends as a result of the album’s success. Jern Eye’s sophomore album, Vision, features production from !llmind, Jake One, Keelay & Zaire, DJ Vinroc, Def Supreme, Phil Jahns, and Artek, and collaborations with artists Cali Agents, Mistah F.A.B., Zion I, Guilty Simpson, Nightclubber Lang, and more looks to make the case for Jern’s upward movement as a legitimate hip-hop talent on a national level. Vision is available now via MYX Music Label.
