Hi there again,
I know I once said Second Lives on Vitalic's latest album sounded too poppy (although it represents who he is at it's fullest) and I never really liked the original very much...

Thank god Vitalic decided to let some great names remix the song:
The remix I'm discussing today will be Lifelike's (don't we all just love the guy):

After listening to this remix I got a lot more respect for the song called Second Lives I once just threw out of the window without ever planning to listen to it again. It was a song with lots of potential, a divine intro and a nice beat that seemed to go on for ages (the main thing that threw me of). Lifelike gave it the spark I needed to fall in love with it. The original still has the better intro of the two, but Lifelike's remix has a much better flow... It stagnates a little on the end of the first half, but right when you think you've had enough of it, the funkyness begins and you've got yourself a nice classic in the making.
Some last thing I promised to do: Here's the TPR song I was going to post.

The original leaves me cold, the Louis La Roche Remix however is fantastic.
Enjoy, Mr. Brown
