Roxy ReModeled / Various Artists
The lyric “Nothing Lasts Forever” floats by on a cloud and reminds you how timeless music can be. The pace then picks up just a notch with a gorgeous remake of one of Roxy’s biggest hits, “Love is The Drug.” With an infectious chorus this one should be huge once again! Next, NYC’s Perfect Project does a remarkable job of taking the rock out of “Angel Eyes” transforming it into downbeat splendor; while Romanian pop group Sunday People bring a similar style to that of Zero 7 in their transformation of“Avalon.” With “Don’t Stop The Dance,” Barcelona’s Biter MC lays down a minimal layer of house beats for Italian Pop Chanteuse Elena DeLucca to do her beautiful work. We reach the centerpiece with Madison Park VS Lenny B’s mind-blowing remix of Roxy Music’s biggest hit, “More Than This.” This track is on the money and shows why Madison Park consistently lands near the top of the Billboard’s Hot Dance Music and Club Play Chart.
Abstract Foundation’s airy guitar-funk remake of “Wildcat’s Days” opens the second half of the disc and leads into J.A.C.E.s energetic house take on Bryan Ferry’s hit “Kiss and Tell.” The chorus is pure bliss! Next, Stormchild brings instrumental electro funk to “Thru An Angels Eyes,” (inspired by “Angel Eyes”) while Goldlust adds a nice layer of brokenbeat and hazy vocals to Beauty Queen. Abstract Foundation then goes more of the traditional pop route for a remake of “Slave To Love”. Bryan Ferry was known for remaking classics and that included Cole Porter’s “You Do Something To Me”. Here Madison Park teams up with GrooveOholics for the late night trip through their version of “You Do Something To Me.” The journey ends in sublime fashion with the epic dance floor pop of “Ten Cents a Dance.” (inspired by “Kiss and Tell”) The Israeli duo, Wilson, bring Roxy Music to the peak time!
