LOVE WILL SAVE THE DAY
This amazing house-style remake of Whitney Houston’s classic has been doing it for me all year. I have to stop playing it! A very powerful piece.
TALK ABOUT OUR LOVE
This dance remix of Talk About Our Love is nothing short of hot. The groove combines live instrumentation with dirty synth stabs and pounding house drums. This will absolutely wreck a dancefloor!
THE BEST I CAN
A war-like chant anthem that does very well for the dance floor. Influenced by heavy 70s-styled vocals with killer house grooves. The 12-inch version also includes the group’s remake of Let’s Get Brutal that is a must-have!
I GOT RHYTHM (Terry Hunter Remix)
Soul Fuzion feat. Vee
Terry Hunter gives a classic house feel to this already underground hit from producer Kenny Dope. It does wonders to the dancefloor.
DON’T CHANGE (Martin Solveig Dub Remix)
Martin Solveig takes this song to another musical level. It starts with a groove, then dramatically builds into another. Destined to be played for a long while.
