After finishing the Sun mix, I was definitely ready to dive into something darker and harder. Don't let the first part of this mix fool you -- it does start off somewhat smoother -- it is still not for the weak. I just had to ease you into it. Ha. I didn't comment on any specific tracks on the last mix (save Viola's song), but I do want to bring a few to your attention on this one.

To start, there are a number of new remixes/remakes of oldies but goodies on here. I didn't plan it that way on purpose. If they were good at one point, there must have been a reason. I hope those that remember the originals will enjoy these new takes on them.

One song that has really been under the dance radar (although it did appear on Billboard a few weeks) is Valeriya -- Wild (Bimbo Jones Vocal Mix). Yeah. I have worked out to this song a number of times over the last few weeks and it just makes me, well, Wild (hardy har har). It just has so much energy.

Another one, including the back-story... DJ Demarko feat. Heather Leigh West - Drop A House (Razor & Guido Remix). Many will remember the song by The Tamperer feat. Maya - Feel It from 1998. What you may not know is Maya didn't sing that song at all. Heather, however, did sing it a few years earlier with Urban Discharge in 1994. She, according to an interview, did not even know this (what I will call) "remix" existed until a friend played it off a dance mix CD. They essentially lied that it was Maya's vocals. There was even a video to their song, with Maya lip synching Heather's (very different than Maya's) voice. Long story short, in order to essentially prove once and for all that it was her vocals, she recently re-recorded the song (which she sounds exactly the same). I intro it with a remake of The Jacksons - Can You Feel It, as The Tamperer song sampled it extensively in their "remix". The Razor & Guido remix actually use a very similar backbeat as well. I've been waiting to put Can You Feel It and Drop a House together for years and have finally got my chance. I will say that The Tamperer "remix" does bring back so many memories of my coming out, so this song does share a special place in my heart (even if it's lyrics are, ironically, very bitter). :-)

One last comment regarding Safire - Exotique (Mike Rizzo Funk Generation Club Mix)... I love a lot of Mike's remixes, although they would typically not appear where I use it, at the particular point of this kind of mix (or perhaps in this kind of mix at all). This remix, however, just grabbed me out of nowhere. There is something about the smooth chord progressions and subtle building that just give me chills every time I listen. I've already e-mailed him to see if there may be a long, 12-minute mix I don't know about. If I were at a party, I would love it to be played at the exact point where I placed it. Love it. I will have to say, probably my favorite song on the entire mix.
