I really wouldn't know what is 'dawnish' about the Oliver Ho "Dawn" Mix of 1952, but I can guarantee that it's a full blown, pumping and ecstatic tribal gem that just pounds on like it was on modified Duracell batteries with integrated solar collectors. An utterly formulaic yet compelling hook drives it into the heart of any given dance floor, while the intrusive and igneous beats provide a perfect template for DJs to toy around with, and blend this one nicely into multiple sets. From tribal to hard and monotonous, this one is bound to secure a spot in everyone's case. Just a purely unadulterated tune that'll do the trick whether you want to witness the crowd completely lose it or you're just plain out of ideas and need that few extra minutes of time to pull your act together.

The B side has two equally effective remixes by Leandro Gamez, and both are executed in the finest Phont Music tradition. Larger than the font on the center label of this vinyl tribal percussion, smooth and obese feedback from the bass department and gradual progression which does not obstruct the linear, tight sound.
Both mixes have a nice blend of 'latin' vocals, often applied as hooks and dropped during break downs, dense and booming four on the floor beats with lighthearted passages surfacing throughout. Not quite as driving as the Dawn Mix by Ho, but more accessible and suitable for the earlier part of the night or the last hour or so of the party, etc. Personally, I prefer the "Fuel Is Over Mix" because it has more power, so to put it, and the structure is slightly more peeled, giving it more club potential.

Overall, in the true Phont style we are given four track of massive dance floor candy. Three out of the total four tracks basically follow the same formula and use the same vocal snippets, so it might be a dull choice to drop more than one version per party, but keep an eye out for the A2 number, which is Ho delivering his best and most inspiring tribal fury. Go check!
