The original is silky smooth piece full of gorgeous synths, sublte basslines and simple beats. Zara's vocal is floated softly over elements while a nice guitar sample echos after each verse. The simple chorded melodies are very pleasing while the vocal never over shadows the production.
Nick K is up next as he hardens the drums and adds a little flare with electro-like effects and gritty synths. A grinding bassline drives this track along while the squeeling of sustained synths play perversly with a sample of the vocal. The production is seemless with all elements meshing so nicely that you forget that its a remix. Would love to hear a dub version of this.
Rounding off the remixes is Richard Earnshaw as he delivers a straight up West Coast style mix with piano melodies while tweaking the original guitar, adding to it a twang. Bouncy basslines and happiness all round is the mainstay here while the vocal gets front stage treatment throughout the mix.
As an extra goodie, Shinichi have provided a track by Sultan called 'Whatever'. Here we see strong beats and rasping percussion create a driving feel while heavy guitar samples and riffs play havoc with your ears. The guitars are heavily effected and are rarely assisted by other elements.
As a release, the quality and variation will suit many in the house department. Sultan's productions are always of the finest quality while fast rising star Nick K delivers what I feel is the standout here.
