Kim Sozzi - Little Bird

Dance diva Kim Sozzi is back with a cover of the Annie Lennox song. Vocally, Kim stays very faithful to Annie's original, doing a very good job. Of all the covers she has done, this one is up there with "How Did You Know."  The chilled production of the main version has some traces of the original. There are additional mixes by Italia 3, Dark Intensity, and Vincenzo Callea. The Italia 3 mix plays up the production aesthetic of the Annie original. It feels like a modernized version of that. Both Dark Intensity and Vincenzo Callea's mixes are in a similar vein as the main version throughout most sections, adding some instrumental electro breaks. The Callea one has a lush piano running under the vocal sections. Overall, the Italia 3 and main versions are the best of the bunch, however, every mix is thoroughly enjoyable and well-produced.
