SE A VIDA É gets two mixes each by by Mark Picchotti and Deep Dish, both aimed squarely at the floor. Mark Picchotti's Deep and Dark Vocal is accessible, for the most part retaining the peppiness of the original, but Deep Dish's Liquid Mix is much more dark and dense, putting the vocals behind a beat much more minimalistic backdrop until halfway through when a ghost of a melody filter through. The dubs of both mixes are nearly indistinguishable from their vocal coutnerparts -- just longer and more prone to repetition.
