Lately a very welcome name has been popping back up on the UK commercial club scene – Almighty! Them of legendary remixing status. No pop single worth its salt in the late nineties and early noughties was released without an Almighty remix. They camped up everything they put their name to, and made everything from pop, rock, r&b and ballads, into dancefloor friendly, sugary club music. They disappeared for a good few years but have recently appeared on promo singles for Crazy Loop (an amazing Europop song that’s getting a release in the UK next month here ) Mica Paris, and the forthcoming Agnes single, ‘I Need You Now’.
And now they’ve worked some magic with their old friends Alcazar! They’ve previously remixed ‘This Is The World We Live In’, ‘Sexual Guarantee’, and ‘Don’t You Want Me’, and have now done some remixes for ‘Burning’s UK release. Thankfully they haven’t changed their style in the slightest, and it sounds exactly as you’d expect and indeed want an Almighty remix to sound – bloody good! It gives the track that extra backing of bass and beat, speeds it up a tad, and helps it force itself into people’s heads that little bit easier. And let’s face it, people NEED Alcazar in their heads! ‘Burning’ is pretty much perfect as it is, but this remix should make it fit into a wider variety of DJ’s sets a bit better. And of course we’ll be playing it at scandipop live next Tuesday.
