Aphrodisiac – EP
Featuring bangin’ remixes by Tony B!, David Garcia, Chris “The Greek” Panaghi, Mike Rizzo, Neil Christian, A. Johnson and Glenn Gutierrez.
“I am glad to say that M:G’s new single has arrived, and it does so in grand fashion. With no less than six remixed versions on the 12” by the likes of Chris “The Greek” Panaghi (NYC), David Garcia (SF), Tony B! (LA), Neil Christian (NYC) and Mike Rizzo (NYC) as well as label guru Glenn Gutierrez (SF), you can be sure to bet, there is a mix here for everyone! Dave and Tony start things off with a filtered house thumper that is short on vocals but tall on style and presentation and they follow that mix up with a faster paced heart beater that maximizes M:G’s lead along with some slick knob twisting. Glenn then rocks a breakbeat intensive do diddy that plays to the senses and leaves you breathless. The flip features a C&R (Neil and Mike) vocal remix that turns the tune into a Big Apple flavored party pusher with plenty of appeal while Chris “The Greek” turns the track into a powerfully driven, after hours anthem with an emphasis that will point any crowd directly towards the dance floor. While the vocals on the 12″ are sparse and the over concentration of remixes seems to take precendence over the artist herself, M:G still comes out shining in a way that her steadfast supporters as well as her new found fans will appreciate. And if you thought the vinyl has a lot of versions, wait till you see the CD5! Good night!!”
