Label: King Street Sounds
Cat #: KSS 1358

The Hype: Another group of hot soulful remixes, stemming from the Blaze presents Underground Dance Artists United for Life “Keep Hope Alive” album comes out on King Street. This batch reinterprets Blaze feat. Ultra Naté, “Wonderful Place” putting some extra spring in the step. UK DJ/Producers Bobby & Steve hit us with a lovely rendition reminiscent of a classic percussive soulful MAW mix that’s sure to please. Our very own Tomo gives us a deep synthy laid back dubby feel with slight vocal injections for added flavor. On the flip, the Fanatix, Britain’s Aaron Ross from BBC 1Xtra and uber-producer Neil Pierce, keep us movin’ with an all out digital melodic interpretation, on their Main Mix minus some of Ultra’s vocals on the dub. What a Wonderful Place indeed.
