how do you make the self-proclaimed 'king of house music' relevant to all the blog masses? pull the old 'pr' media formula of getting some buzz-worthy remixers. farley jackmaster funk has some people working for him that know what they are doing... they got boys noize (one of the kings of the blog-o-sphere), production duo dolby anol (covering the UK indie rock crowd) and lifelike (purveyor of cosmic disco perhaps second only to fred falke at the moment) to each throw their signature sounds on this new track. darryl pandy's vocals are probably the only common thread on all three remixes and remind me of a soloist on gospel sundays.
this first remix by boys noize (and maybe my favorite of the bunch) sounds a bit like something out of the dfa camp with filtering buildups and crisp cymbols. its titled the 'boys noize started like this mix' which makes me wonder if this is how he sounded way back when...

the second mix was touched by the king midas of cosmic neu-disco (um sorry, i just made that genre up). he covers the track with 80's throwback synths and house vocals. it may have been more aptly named 'lifelike 1992 mix', haha.

the last one of the bunch was reworked by dolby anol. they take the song for a bit harder spin than the others, perhaps a style i would have expected from boys noize, but they make it work to round out the group.
