DJs and dancers of a certain age should recognize "Love Is Not A Game". The breezy, summery drum & bass cut, featuring soulful house style vocals by Kathy Brown, became something of an anthem following its release on Defected back in 2001. This re-release boasts two fresh remixes for 2017. Full Intention kick things off with an evocative, occasionally spine-tingling big room house version that places Brown's version atop a chunky, late night groove. Fittingly, J Magik provides the second re-rub, a "Rollers Mix" that fixes rubbery synth-bass and snippets of Brown's headline-grabbing vocals to a punchy, hybrid D&B/house groove.
Veteran DJs and those with long memories may remember the original version of Kathy Brown's "You Give Good Love", which originally appeared on Defected back in 2002. This time round, remixers DnA Studios have jettisoned the pumping soulful house vibes of the original version, instead creating a warm and cheery version that sits somewhere between classic U.S house, Crazy P style live disco-house and good, old fashioned disco. It's a revision that hits the spot from start to finish, delivering a breezy, celebratory sing-along that should cheer up even the most stony-faced dancers.
