Soulsearcher - Can't Get Enough

It's hard to believe that this was released over 10 years ago! Soulsearcher was made up of producer Marc Pomeroy and singers Donna Allen and Thea Austin. Marc has been a part of other projects such as Cleptomaniacs ("All I Do") and Jazz-N-Groove. In addition to doing backing vocals for other artists, Donna Allen has released a few tracks of her own. Thea Austin is known for her vocals on SNAP!'s "Rhythm Is A Dancer" and "Colour Of Love" as well as a host of other songs. As the UK-based Defected Records is celebrating its 10th anniversary, some remixes have been released for this club classic. "Can't Get Enough" was huge on both sides of the Atlantic. The Henrik B and Hy2rogen & Nikola are in a similar vein. Both sound completely different from the original song. They are in an Electro/House vein (think Deadmau5, Kaskade, Adam K & Soha). They are just okay. Those liking that sound will like those. The Layabouts mix is a bit Housier. It calls to mind what The Wideboys do on their mixes. Guy Robin's mix is the closest to the original. It's basically a cutup of the original with some Electro elements. It's effective. Also included in the package are the classic original mix and the Jazz-N-Groove mixes. Other than the original, the Guy Robin mix is the only one that contains the Gary's Gang sample.

Overall, this update is decent. Not necessary, but it's good for introducing this song to a whole new generation of clubbers and DJs who may not have experienced this song the first time around.
