40 Thieves ft. Qzen – Don’t Turn It Off remixes EP (Permanent Vacation)

The nu-disco stomper that’s been doing the rounds all year in many a purveyor of an overpriced Mojito comes back repackaged in this neat set of remixes.

What began as a cover of a Hot Chocolate track, originally appearing on the flipside of minor 1979 hit “Mindless Boogie” gets re-rubbed by Brennan Green and wizard of editry Greg Wilson, to bring the tune from bar to dancefloor.

You know the original, the shimmery synths, the odd coo of Simmons, that aloof yet flirtatious female vocal courtesy of Sweat (On The Walls) singer Qzen: “You’re quite tasty aren’t you baby?”

Brennan Green stretches out the tune out to a pee break-worthy nine minutes, stripping down the warm cuddly bass for a bit and dribbling acid all over it. It’s good but Mr. Wilson’s edit is the winner here. He deconstructs the cut and puts the bits back together to create a far tighter entity, one which, like any respectable young lady, doesn’t whore itself out all in one go but teases, holds itself back, to ultimately deliver.

February 24, 2013

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals. Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article

Kirsty – Hands High (Afrojack Radio Edit)

February 23, 2013

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
