|Vicki Shepard - Never In a Million
Years (CD Remixes)
One of our favorite club divas is back at it again! Bringing us re-vamped versions of Never In a Million Years look for the steaming Vicki Shepard in a red-hot 2-part interview in March. This CD single doesnt disappoint! All of the mixes are extremely well structured and danceable! Track #1 brings us the pumpin NRGized Mix and its a DJs dream! Sure to pack your floor from the first note, this track is hotter than South Beach in the middle of July! Vickis vocals soar to deliver a tight, rounded portion of Euro-dance complete with this feeling of POWER! Its so easy to see why this mix is the NRGized Mix pure raw, pulsating beats that will have your entire floor reaching for the stars. An outright feel good anthem.
The MajiMix is this great funk trance tune that will flow gracefully from your speakers. Its this type of track that allows listeners to get an idea of an artists voice and Vicki delivers her goods profoundly the girl is legit!
lots of synth sounds, versus tons of drums tracks, offers this mix a fun, tranquil
feeling. Sounding a bit Aqua-esque (which I love), the Ibiza mix might just work well
mixed in with some Alice DJ. Where the heck is Ibiza anyway? Seems everyone is going to
Ibiza these days (just kidding). The Club Euro Mix at only 4:36 is fresh and should become
a staple for any serious club DJ. The Heartland Mix is by far my favorite. Im not
the biggest fan of dubs but this mix kicks ass. Vickis
sparse vocal snippets are PUMPED up creating this furor in your brain that makes you want
to dance! This remix is superbly mastered the correct the correct way, climbing and
building off a drum track and introducing all sorts of various sounds to create this thick
clubby sound. Super-duper heavy on keyboards, laden
with all sorts of techno sounds this mix should be used for more than just filler during
intros and outros. Tracks 6 and 7 are both edits that would fare will in any
DJ mix with snagging bass that should be workable with anyone on the tables.
Overall, if youre a true lover of Euro dance these mixes are for you! Vickis powerful voice is just the icing on the cake. Never mind the receipt, its safe to make this one an open box purchase.
Never In a Million Years is available on Majik Music out of the UK.
