Karen Ramirez's IF WE TRY gets taken to the dancefloor on this single, with Steve Hurley giving a disco bass with his "Silk's Disco Anthem." Red Jerry goes progressive house with their nearly vocal-less version though, and D-Influence tries out some middling hip-hop, which doesn't quite work. Alas, these mixes don't try hard enough, as it were.
