Jupiter Rising

Go! Remix

(Chime Entertainment; US: 2006)

This remix effort of “Go!”, a song that has been getting play everywhere from the Disney Channel to NBC and Fox Sports, gets the royal galactic treatment here with a string of different treatments. The first of these is the “Eddie Arroyo Reggaeton Mix” that is a Latin-tinged reggae hall arrangement that brings to mind Sean Paul mashed up with No Doubt. The “Dave Aude Radio Mix” sounds like it’s been remixed by Pet Shop Boys with a definite dancehall beat. Aude’s “Deep Space Mixshow Mix” is just that, a longer and spacey affair that doesn’t stray from his first remix of the track. Perhaps the best of the late is Aude’s “Deep Space Club Mix” that seems to be influenced by a bigbeat sound. The song then gets the treatment courtesy of Friscia & Lamboy, the first being a “Tribal Vox Mix” that doesn’t distinguish itself much from the previous remix. The “Go! Pop Single Mix” is okay, but after hearing the same song for an hour, despite different touches, it all blends into one.
