i dont like that remix so much


I like it!!!! Better than the Grant Nelson.

Please stop saying "Faulk', his name's Fred Falke.

Iron-G: darn, don't say Sony have made yet another spelling mistake on a single/promo.....

Hmmm...not feeling this one as much as the GN's okay. I've heard better. I've heard worse.

This is a pretty chill remix nice sounds, I dig it!

Sad remix ! The intro seems like a Jean-Michel Jarre's song !

i have the maxi cd, and the grant nelson dub it's good!! you know, some stuff like "karaoke",jaja!!

i really like this remix a lot. i've been listening to it more than the original version! if the grant nelson one is even better, looks i'll be getting the maxi!

I'm afraid yes, David :(

Iron-G: thanks for the clarification. I've updated this news item and will try my best to spell it correctly in future!

Nice! hehe sorry if I sounded rude, if Sony made the mistake, you couldn't know!

Nah i don't like this version, it bears no resemblance to the original like the Grant Nelson one and its too clubbin for me if you get what i mean lol!

Come on, people- it never was meant to be a jazzy-sounding track!! The Grant Nelson mix was very good, it also shows in places that Jamiroquai COULD do funky house brilliantly, if they wanted to. But this one is a cool remix, and one for DJ sets in the clubs!! Don't forget that they are as much a part of the house music/club scene as they are a jazz/funk/disco band- they're way more open-eared than tey get any credit for!! A remix is meant to be just that- a different take on the original, sometimes giving it a "musical makeover" in places.

I don't understand the "too club-like, or nothing like the original" comments. It would be worse to have the same song, but over a standard house beat- that would cheapen the original (and horribly undermine Derrick and Sola's ability as musicians!!). Jamiroquai are better than that. Grant Nelson, Alan Braxe & Fred Falke have delivered on this occasion, and are all respected DJs and producers.
