Review: Mooque teams up with Pimpsoul on "Feeling Good", with soulful, uplifting vocals courtesy of Bianca Gerald. It's party vibes all the way here, with parping synths, pumping beats and catchy melodies a-plenty. The Tantrum Desire remix is a predictably rambunctious affair, full of synth screeching mayhem, gritty bass and Flux Pavillion style bellows and beeps. Other remixes in the package include the Rory Lyons tweak, which is buckets of fun with simmering bass and soaring strings, and a re-lick from Herbgrinder, who strips back the vocal and adds a funky swing to the original.
Review: Will Nina Simone's original ever stop lending itself to contemporary twists? We really hope not. Mooquee and Pimpsoul's take is a fine example: bold strings strike back and forth with gusto as Bianca belts out the sing-along vocals with both respect to the originator and her own originality, it's a guaranteed party piece. Remix action is high, too. The funk version almost trumps the lead track with its low-swung bassline and free-spirited bellows of sax. Looking for something with a little more pep? Look no further than Nappy Riddem's rump-ruffling take. Rolling with a solid breakbeat and some fantastic live drum crescendos, this tickles parts of the dancefloor the other versions can't quite hit. Oh, and there's an instrumental and an acapella too.
