The Patchworks remix adds a really Deep House groove vibe and jazzy guitar adds even more brilliance. Leroy, as I have said before, has straddled many different genres over the past 30-plus years and is equally at home on a disco groove, a soul groove or a house groove. This remix by Patchworks is just like the amazing soulful disco-house coming out of America at the moment...at least in the dance music field our American Cousins are reinventing the groove and mixing hard house beats, ethereal deep house synths with real instruments. strings, guitars and funky basslines. The man, of course suits all of this, and so the remix stands alone as a great song. Rob Hardt, of Cool Million and Seductive Souls fame, has supplied the third and final remix here and it's a slamming, spaced out affair which relies on strong piano and a house groove, drizzled with an 80s party-time groove. This has a slight flavour of a Joey Negro early 90s piece - think "Universe Of Love" and you're not far off the mark. The remixes are so different, the beats vary and flavours are definitely separate, yet Mr. Burgess' vocals and lyrics are symbiotic with each one in turn. This is a shining example of talents both vocally and production-wise and hats off to all three of our mixing partners in this slamming example of contemporary - yet classic - soulful dance music. Thank God for all concerned, and let's have much more of this in the future!
