Deborah Cox - If It Wasn't For Love (Remixes)

First performed and premiered in late July, the new single from Deborah Cox will hit the clubs real soon.

Deborah's vocals are amazing as can be expected. The Original version is produced by red hot remixers Mixin Marc & Tony Svejda. It is an electro/house production with many buildups, breakdowns, and beatless sections. The Remix of the Original has some minor differences in production, including some of the elements, the high notes and loops, the addition of beats under the verses, and fewer dropouts. The subtle changes are effective.

There are additional remixes by Papercha$er, Razor N Guido & DJ Skribble, and Tracy Young (as Young Collective). The harder electro mix by Papercha$er is a nightmare-ish, noisy mess with the pitch shifted high notes in the build ups. It's painful to listen to. The collaboration of Razor N Guido with DJ Skribble results in some finely produced big room tribal mixes that keep the energy up and make great use of the vocals. Tracy Young's mixes are much mellower than what most would expect from her. This is especially obvious on the Main mix with the lush piano elements and the synths. The beats are rather subdued as well. The Mixshow surprisingly packs a greater punch with everything nicely tightened up. The original and remix plus the RnG & DJ Skribble, and Tracy Young mixes are fantastic.

Grade: A
