The legendary house queen Screamin’ Rachael has her super cut U Used To Hold Me remixed to perfection on this new release from TRAX Records. Rachael’s DJ sets inspired her to reach out to her favorite producers to add some amazing flavors! An all star cast of remixers step up to add their own unique spin with Joe Smooth, DJ Elmo, Marcus Mixx, Matt Donovan and Todd Terry all stepping up.
The legend that is Joe Smooth goes first with a timeless vocal version that layers up the piano chords and slinky beats to great effect. U Used To Hold Me (Todd Terry’s explosive TNT Inhouse Radio Mix) is pumping and hard hitting, with tough beats and a sleazy vocal running through with solid kicks and scraping hits that really will amp up the party. No wonder dance music aficionados call him “Todd the God”! The superb Late Nite ‘DUB’ Addict Remix is all about those dubby drums and lo-fi sounds, with a percolating baseline always teasing and pleasing.
There is a real wonky feel to the brilliant DJ Elmo3 & Calambre DJ Mix that has a turbocharged bassline and quirky acid flashes layered in while the original vocal still stands proud. Marcus Mixx Mix retains plenty of the classic feeling and flavour of the original but with a more dark and gritty bassline that brings it right up to date. The Galaxy Rap Remix is a big one with gritty hip hop vocals featuring Chicago’s rap legend RPM and off grid beats that are raw and edgy. The Matt Donovan Mix closes down with something completely different – old school breakbeats and blistering drum work that make for a fantastically tense and club ready sound.
This is a fantastic package that brims with excellent new remixes of a stone cold classic.
