Back when I was just a young DJ in training, one of the first CD Maxi Singles (yes, I know) that I ever mixed with was the collection of rewerks for Britney’s third Oops..I Did It Again single, ‘Stronger.” Loaded with high energy dance music redrafts by Mac Quayle, Jack D. Elliot and Miguel Migs, each mix has its own special kind of vibe, taking the intense Max Martin flavor of the original and transforming it into a disco daydream on the dance floor of Godney life.
One particular remix that stood out for me (and most certainly does today) is Mr. Migs’ dreamy deep house take on Brit Brit’s feisty fire. His flowing vocal mix takes the auto-primped vocals of the original and places them on top of a crisp, chilly after hours groove that only the mega- talented DJ knows how to cook up. Even 15 (!) years later, his romping rewerk of Britney’s TRL destroying number still bumps-and-grinds just as deep and delicious as it did back then.
Since the weather outside today is all wrapped up in damp and dreary, light some candles, spark it up and let Miguel Migs’ sultry “Stronger” remix slip into your headphones like Britney’s nude beaded bodysuit from the 2000 VMA’s…
Happy Birthday, Britney!
Of course, there’s always the original….
