I seriously need to get internet back at home soon coz finding all this stuff randomly or by chance is not fun anymore, I'm supposed to be the first to know about every release lol (it's unfair!).. anyways few days ago i got the CDM of Nelly's new single "Say It Right" & after one listen (skipping each mix while fast forwarding through them) i came to conclusion that its crap but only because i was in a shitty mood at that point (dating problems.. blah blah blah) anyhow the next day @ 5:00am with a big cup of Hot coconut & Vanilla chocolate i decided to give it another listen and voila it works :)

"Bad Boy Bill Mix" nothing special or amazing, get a bit monotonic throughout the track & he only thing that saves it is the electro samples & pipe effect sprinkled here and there.. I'm not saying it's bad but it's not that good either.

"Friscia & Lamboy" a typical remix that VA compilations will probably include in their releases, people who like "Junior Vasquez/Cass & Mangan/Chocolate Puma" will enjoy this one for sure.

The "Peter Rauhofer" remixes are ALWAYS known to have the buzzing distortion sound on it and the whole i'm-the-villain-dj feeling on his work, there's nothing much to say about his work because he's been around for as long as i can remember and almost all his remixes are brilliant & i'm sure if u listen to dance music then u know who he is.

& finally my favorite of the whole bunch the "Dummies Remix", it seems like what they did here is try to convince us that this remix is actually the original version but then furtado decided to go all pop! They reworked the track by making an electro version without ditching the original feeling to it, I simply adore it if u know who "The Knife" is then u will probably remember them listening to this remix "music wise".. It's not over sampled or far driven from the original but its 100% a different genre. I actually like this one more than the original (sorry Timbo). Notice the hollow wooden logs beat & low battery beeps (such a treat) loves it.
