Prince - Rock and Roll Affair (Remixes)

The legendary R8B/Funk/Rock's throwback single has a remix package. Official remixes of his songs have been especially rare in the last few years. Swiss House impresario Jamie Lewis who had done remixes of Prince's "Dance 4 Me" in 2011 provides 2 different sets of mixes. The Club Mix is a big room styled mix with large synths and plenty of bass. The vocals are hypnotic and fit well with the production. The Stripped Down mix has a similarly hard beat, but the addition of recreated Disco/Funk instrumental elements straight out of Prince's early 80s work gives this one a major edge. This one just works a lot better. The extended instrumental guitar break is so lovely and unexpected. Also included on the package are edits of the two Jamie mixes, the radio edit of the original, and an extended version. Overall, the Stripped Down mix is the best of the bunch.
