Livin' Joy

Profile:
Livin' Joy was an Italian House project of Gianni Visnadi and Paolo Visnadi. Their first single "Dreamer" featured the voice of vocalist Janice Robinson.

Nobody seems to have mentioned that the version of "Dreamer" on their album has different/resung vocals (though same lyrics) to the "original" and other remixes of "Dreamer". Very curious. I would love to hear the story behind that if anyone knows more information.

*edit* I should read before I post, haha. It turns out that the Vocals on the album for "Dreamer" were actually re-sung by "Tameka Starr" and not by the original singer "Janice Robinson". Still interesting they did that and wonder if there is a story behind it.

Great House project, distinctive against most House groups during this decade. Alot of their songs commonly utilized the Casio CZ-101 Electric Organ preset to create their melody hooks as featured prominently in Dreamer, Follow the Rules, and Don't Stop Movin'. And it worked out beautifully - combined with the romantic-laced vocals of Janice Robinson and Tameka Starr and producers/songwriters Gianni and Paolo Visnadi. The brainchilds of the earlier House group, Alex Party. Where some of their singles also retain the electric organ-sound found in Livin Joy.

Shame they didn't fair too well with Just for the Sex Of it back in '99, they had huge potential.
