Monkey Business (Official Remixes)

#1 Post by Luke Colorado »

These two remixes, the Friend Within and Prins Thomas, have saved this terd of a single! It's not that they are just better than the original, it's that they are actually good. Whatcha y'all think?
I sincerely *love* Disco 2 and listen to it straight through regularly.

They are good, but nothing exceptional. No bigger emotions. I am more excited to hear the full studio version. As Prince mix very similar to the original it's funny you find the Radio Edit horrible.

Do we really need a separate topic. Can some moderator merge it with the main thread about the single?

I would prefer a dub of the Prins, no doubt, but its much more exciting than the Radio Edit IMO; and no cheesy vocoder.

Vocoder (or that talk box) is something I really like about MB. Usually I am against this kind of tools, but it perfectly works with track's machinery.

I happen to love the single - on repeat often during the day and one of their best for a while for me. The Prins one is great, the friend within one is dire.
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|

I don’t know how you can like dance music and not the Friend mix.

I'm not big of either of the remixes.
One is basically just a french house music with "just playing" sampled over it, and the vocoder/talk box vocals also placed on top.
The other remix is like an extended version of the original song but it has sillier lyrics about being a chimpanzee and entering in the backdoor.

So the Monkey Business remixes are getting radio play already?
Is there anywhere to hear them online?
Thanks!
