I reckon its about time we paid our repects to the excellent Pamela Fernandez and the seminal classic that is “Kickin’ In The Beat”. Yeah, that accapella has been caned within an inch of its life, found predominantly listed as remixes of this tune but often just snippets of the whole. You’ll find a bunch of those tracks listed on here but the highlights for me have to be Sublime’s The Theme and the Club For Life track from Chris & James. Fernandez’ voice is tailor made for house music and the Todd Terry remix of this just brings it all together with a funky but chunky house arrangement and the vocals stomping all over the track like Godzilla. There’s a bunch of other decent remixes out there, some house heavy tracks, some more progressive. Lets see if we cant list some of the better ones eh?
Tommy Musto Remix – Glam House from 1994
Standard Issue Dancing Diva’s mayhem from 1994
Deeper Alex Party remix, also 1994!
The cracking Sub-Urban Kickin’ Mix from……. 1994!
The inexplicably popular AIM Dub mix, choppy raveyness/bouncy houseness in here… 1992
