So on the remixes of Móa's JOY & PAIN, Victor Calderone offers his club vision, which strips out the jazzy elements of the original in favor of more generic high-energy diva-based stomping (his dub eliminates her vocals altogether, except for some digitized whispering). Dimitri from Paris, on his "French Touch" mix, retains more of the original feel, while introducing some dancefloor-friendly breaks (his "Joy & Beats" mix has a more solid 4/4 beat). Terranova gives her a darker, slower rub, and the moodiness suits the track well, focusing more on the 'pain' part of the title.

Moa has a pretty unique voice, reminiscent of the old Vaudeville days. I can just envision her on a cabaret stage somewhere. Dimitri's mixes are the best of the bunch here; the drum programming on it is highly infectious. Way better than the Calderone mixes - a mismatch made in heaven.
