Plantlife – When She Smiles She Lights The Sky (4Hero Remix)

Just a quick one tonight, but when this track came on this morning, it had to go up. It's one of my favourite tracks of all time and one of my favourite remixes.

 

I have to be honest, I really don't like the original, but 4Hero keep the bare minimum and turn it into a broken beat, jazz house, barnstormer. Honestly, I don't know where to start, it is so awesome from top to bottom – the beat, the keys the additional jazz scatting. My friend lent me a comp with it on and I think I played it non stop about 20 times. I remember dancing round my flat to it while getting ready for work.

 

it really is a fantastic example of how a mix can completely reposition a track. In fact, it's so their track I have used a pick of them.
