I've spent the morning listening (and 'lip-synching for my life') to each of these new mixes for Beyonce's "Halo" and I just can't decide which is my favorite, so I'm gonna post all of them. Just like "Diva", this isn't my fav Beyonce moment, I think it would have made a great single for Pink, but I don't need Ryan Tedder writing his Evanescence-ish ballads for Beyonce, sorry, I just don't.
That said, the remixes are pretty. damn. hot. So... Here ya go.
Beyonce - Halo (Lost Daze Club Mix) Prob my favorite. Has some Optimism in it, where the other don't.
Beyonce - Halo (Karmatronic Club Mix) Misses the mark, but comes so close! Doesn't take shape as a Chicane-wanna-be trance mix till the last 3 minutes. Worth listening too though.
Beyonce - Halo (Gomi & RasJek Club Mix) Look, I LOVES ME SOME GOMI! And this mix starts all pop and fun, then suddenly descends in to sad minor messiness. (Is it me or do NYC-DJs churn out the darkest shit in the winter, LIGHTEN UP BITCHES!) That said, this would probably kill at After-Hours when everyone was so wasted they could barely stand let alone dance. If you are into that kind of thing.
Beyonce - Halo (Dave Aude Club Mix) Slammin' for an Afternoon Lunchtime Dance Mix on Top 40 Radio. That's what Aude delivers everytime, (you Club DV8 fans should send him flowers.) Or maybe I should? BUT the Mix is still too downer for me, again, Lighten UP!
Beyonce - Halo (Red Soul Club Mix) This is the most random one of them all, it wants to be a laid-back Maurice Joshua Mix, but they sped up the vocal so it just fails. A Dub Mix of it on a Sunday morning would be cute though.
