|Richard "Humpty" Vission feat. Rozalla|
|Everybody's Free CD Remixes|
|Originally released a couple of years back, sans
Vission, "Everybody's Free" was re-recorded for Vission's debut mix album,
"Shut The F*** Up and Dance". This pairing of phenomenal personalities of
Vission himself and the queen of the clubs Rozalla is a hit just waiting to happen.
The CD Single I received is filled with eight massive mixes, with most made for crossover appeal with genres ranging from tribal to house to, sound of the moment, trance.
|Everybody kicks off with the radio
edits - "Vission's Original Radio Edit" (3:29); "Mijangos Remix Radio
Edit" (3:50) and "Mind Trap Radio Edit" (3:50). At a first listen,
Vission's Mix would be the most likely to make a jump to radio. Its' light house sound is
a hot staple in the top 40 market right now with the likes of Fragma and Alice DJ hitting
the waves. While the Mijangos Mix is a mighty mix, it's also very thick and soulful
sounding, which may sideline the mix with PD's. Mind Trap's Mix rounds out the radio edits
with a mountain of effects on the vocals - capitalizing on the current Vocoder craze.
Now the "Plasma Trace Mix" (7:02) is something to write home about
- the intro to this track is simply shocking! The trancey beats just roll and roll making
the transition nicely from intro to the meat of the song, highlighting Rozalla's glorious
vocal abilities. What a stellar example of vocalist meets producer meets remixer. Plasma
doesn't stop creating sounds - even conservative house minds will love this mix. The
"Vission Cyberfest Mix" (6:04) is a full non-stop version of the "Original
Radio Edit" complete with a more progressive NRG sounding introduction.
