Watch out! Here comes Christina A again and it's a boogie jam! For those who think something has to be House or Techno to be dancable, check this out, it has got the energy and charisma to get you out there dancin'. The song is along the lines of R&B and Hip-Hop and clocks at about 129 BPM. Christina's vocals are soulful as they have always been and sit well in this arrangement. I love how they go into rapid fire during the chorus over an energetic beat.
There are some remixes but the original is best. The Jake Ridley Remix, to some degree follows in the same musical footsteps as the original but with a 4/4 beat and the same roughness as the original. The other remix I have is by Ospina & Sullivan and it's a gospel-tinged House remix which is very smooth. Though this version sounds good, it takes away the song's catchiness.
Remixes these days tend to have that same "cookie-cutter" and "formula" approach with everything having to be 4/4. What I really would have liked to hear is an extended remix with the original music because this song already is dancefloor ready. Perhaps it is just the radio edit of the song in which I have but as the song finishes out is busts out into a nice percussive break that screams for an encore. It is as if it fades prematurely...as I said, this may just be the radio edit.
This song smokes!
