Yoko Ono - Walking On Thin Ice 2013

The final mix of this song with the mysterious, ominous-sounding vocals was produced hours before her late husband John Lennon was tragically murdered. The song was one of her biggest and most well known hits. It was given remixes by Danny Tenaglia, Eric Kupper with Fran├žois Kevorkian, Felix Da Housecat, Orange Factory, Pet Shop Boys, Peter Rauhofer, and Rui Da Silva in 2003.

Now it is back a decade later with brand new mixes Danny Tenaglia, Dave Aude, Emjae, Ralphi Rosario, and R3hab. Danny's new mixes are a throwback to his work with Peter Daou in the mid 90s. His 'Grand Ballroom mix' starts off with a lush, nearly 3 minute downtempo introduction before the tribal beats come in. His 'Give Ice A Chance Mix' is slightly shorter, omitting the downtempo intro. It has been many years since he has done mixes in this style. Dave Aude's piano-based mixes are lovely too. Emjae's are pleasant too with the "Love Is Gone"-styled piano melody. Ralphi Rosario delivers his usual tribal anthem. R3hab's has some pretty sections but it gets really noisy quickly.

Overall, Danny Tenaglia, Dave Aude, and Emjae's are the best of the bunch.

Full streams of all the mixes can be heard on Yoko's website
