Radio Slave is the undisputed star here. He takes Diddy at his rant and makes the nearly 30-minute track that Diddy suggests are missing from the dance scene these days. His words are wrapped into Slave's normal boom-boom stomp, but the psychedelic swirl is enough to keep your interest. And then there's the piano solo that begins at about 22 minutes into the track, which lets light in and helps cement its place as one of the most adventurous remixes of the year. Or any year.
Elsewhere, Jay Haze wields a sticky and complex groove that confuses deliciously, while Deetron goes epic with Diddy taking a backseat to keening strings and furiously insistent tech house. Paul Woolford's Blackout remix is pure big room fodder, shoehorning it into his electro house template seamlessly, and SIS misses the boat completely by bypassing everything interesting about the tune and focusing on a simple melody to the point of distraction. When Diddy talks about "15 or 20 minute versions," it sounds silly and out-of-place. Luckily, he sounds right at home just about everywhere else.
