Refixes of remixes of awesome original tunes often sounds like WAY too much going on and a potential thirsty effort at getting something noticed.  In this case, we’ve got a whole other dimension and development added to the scenario that definitely merits mention. Oliver’s “The Night Is On My Mind” is murder, a 100BPM slow-motion disco banger with one of my favorite videos of 2013.  Then Dillon Francis hit us with a mid-tempo electro / moombahton banger of a remix that was just incredibly rad.  Along comes Serbian DJ/Producer Neki Stranac, who has a habit of doing these types of things in the past, and takes everything down to 90BPM, adds a crazy chop and shuffle and makes it an instant zouk smash.  It’s also not the first time Neki’s taken Dillon’s mid-tempo bounce and slowed things down with brilliant results.  Can we get a flip of “Bootleg Fireworks” or “Without You” while you’re at it, Neki?
