Amazing remake of a classic Latin fusion tune featuring flawless vocals by India. But what a disappointment it was to find out that the beautiful Original Flava 12" version on this pressing (if not most) had been mutilated from its full-length 12:30 min long version into a chopped edit which was not even properly edited but simply cut off when the song changes its tempo and becomes an all-instrumental piece. The only CD to my knowledge that contains the full-length version is the US CD Single "Runaway" (#GSRDM-3094).

<I>Runaway</I>, Nuyorican Soul’s first single off their album, is a delicious disco-house-funk version of the 70s classic. There’s something special how the Masters at Work hombres infuse so much soul into the track, helped, in no small part, by the strong and emotive vocals by India. The track itself is most likely too slow for the dancefloor, but Armand Van Helden takes care of that with his Mongoloids in Space mix. His remix is reminiscent of other work he did around that time (Tori Amos, CJ Bolland, Sneaker Pimps), but the disco bass breakdown in the middle is fantastic. Mousse T. does a more straightforward house mix.
