A1: House. Fairly stripped back reimagining of the original. More focused on the beats. Perhaps more funky, definitely deeper and loses a good deal of it's commercial sound (as much as you can with a big hit). It's originality comes is the shape of an acidy lead that works very well. Not huge by any means but a solid remix. [NINE]
A2: House (Vintage). Vintage piano lead is very club classic but the beats and sounds around it are much more up to date. Shares little or nothing with the original so a genuine option if your not a fan. I'd swear it's called "dusty dub" because it was an altogether different track sat on a shelf in Kerri's production room. Some really nice piano work overlaid in the second half further distancing itself from the original and much closer to my tastes but it doesn't pop and you can see why it may have been left neglected for a while. [SEVEN]
B1: House/Electro. Braxe really takes ownership of this track here. Making this sound like a genuine Roule release that has later had a much slower, banal, commercial remix done after. This trumps the original in every way. More layer's, more pop, just much better realised and a happier, albeit more intimate club experience. The breakdown does come closer to the original but even then it's improved. Remixes of this standard are not easily created. Kudos. [GOLDTEN]
B2: House/Electro. Kraftwerk remix? No but genuinely has that vintage feel in some of it's chords. Nicely straddles the two genre's and will surely appeal to both camps though perhaps making it difficult to completely embrace for the Electro community. Uses a great "Discopolis" robotic sample. While there's piles of originality it does use some of the originals markers ,while not in your face you will be aware of it's DNA. It even has a Disco breakdown. Given the number of remixers this does well to comfortably grab the silver medal. [TEN]
