 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]L’Tric are back in town with their global success The Way You Are. I loved very much the original and now the remixes are the finest you can expect on a commercial oriented release. Firstly the legend Todd Terry does what he knows best. He plays beautifully with metallic old school bassline along with tribal uplifting style drums along with playful application of synths and vocals. The result is infectious to the maximum with that old school house flavour. Zander deliver the very deep melodic smooth and groovy melodic summer chilling house version with great balearic touches and eternal Ibiza sunsets written all over it.  Pirupa goes for the underground minded version by keeping vocals distorted to the minimum and focusing more on the dark grooves and thumping bassline that wiggles and smashes it big time. Max Leise is doing the cool chilling French disco house version with long intro and main part that is melodic and playful with great carefree attitude written all over it. If you like things tough and groovy then you should park on the Tom Starr space. He does a powerful full on banging, booming and shaking full on version with basslines that crank the stereo systems. This is a package not to be missed. #PureGold Love IT[/content]
