|Jennifer Lopez - Waiting For
Tonight (Hex Hector Momentous Mix)
I hate to say it, but I like this song. I really dont want to, I mean come on, its Jennifer Lopez, movie star maybe. Dance star definitely not! The fact that your "seeing" Puff Daddy shouldnt be a concoction for instant Latin music fame. Maybe shes done her time in the bottom of the barrel, but probably not. I can only assume I like it because one of New Yorks best remixers Hex Hector has totally reworked this otherwise nothing of a song.
Injecting a massive jungle, trance beat over Ms. Lopezs vocals, (eliminating a lot of that unnecessary whoo-oo-oo bullshit that Jennifer likes) Hex spellbinds us with a cross between a vocal and a very mean sounding dub. Cant say it enough, whether you play the song at the beginning or the end of a night, this mix is going to get clubbers on the floor in droves. The mix is already getting plenty of attention on newsgroups like alt.DJ.com; and people are simply raving that they cant enough of the song. But why is it that the only part of the mix they remember is the whoo-oo-oo part of the song? Is it that memorable? Apparently so, as Waiting for Tonight clubs charts all over the world including the US, Italy, Spain & the UK.
|Work Records knew exactly what they were doing when they signed this artist. With Latin exploding everywhere and injecting their spice both here and abroad, its no surprise that they are marketing the hell out of Jennifer. Dont take it personal, Ive heard On the 6 and wasnt impressed with it when it came out, and nearly a year later, I dont feel any differently. I do, on the other hand think Hex has truly turned this song into something palatable. For the sake of other more talented dance artists, lets hope George Clooney is available to do Out of Sight 2 soon!|
