It’s rare that a remix betters the original, but that’s exactly what Riva Starr delivers with a supremely confident mix that joins the dots and fills in the gaps of what was essentially a mash-up, and turns it into something that almost resembles a song. An irrepressible piano hook and energetic percussion drive things forward for a mix that is unashamedly commercial and, without a doubt, destined for wide appeal. Remember Gadjo’s ‘So Many Times’? This is its spiritual successor.
Very rarely does a remix emulate an original, but this is exactly what Riva Starr achieves with this superlative mix of Enjoy Music. It takes what was essentially a mash-up and smoothes it over with a masterclass in dance music production. The piano hook is irrepressible and the percussion is oozing with funky energy. It’s commercial, but unashamedly so, and like recent dance hits by the likes of Gramephonedzie, this is a tune destined for widespread success.
