Sir Ivan - Hare Krishna

This is his newest single which is based on the "Hare Krishna" chant in the famous play Hair is a positive "love one another" type of song. It's an unusual song to turn into a club track, however, the love and peace aesthetic of the song allows it to work. The vocals are pleasant. There are remixes for this by Tony Moran, Ford, King And White, Hoxton Whores, CR n Sugarman, and the Flash Bros. Tony Moran offers a hard, big room mix with plenty of Indian instruments. This one may work better had a dub been included as the instrumental production is so great. Ford also incorporates Indian instruments into his mixes. King And White's mixes lose the Indian flavor and are more electro-oriented. The production doesn't really fit the vocals. The Hoxton Whores mix doesn't really go anywhere either. It has some good moments though. CR n Sugarman's mix has an early 90's rave sound especially with the synths. It's nice. The Flash Bros. mix has a lot going on. It's tribal/electro with some techy elements. It works. Overall, Tony Moran and Ford's are the clear winners.

Grade: B (for the package overall)
Grade: A (for the Tony Moran and Ford mixes)
