Carlos Whittaker is someone who is way "out of the box” in terms of his beautiful family, sometimes controversial tweets and blogs and approach to life. He now drops a short remix EP, The Fight Club Sessions
, to accompany release of his album, Fight. (Read about THAT album here
This special EP was made as a thank-you to people who pre-ordered Fight through Carlos' website, RagamuffinSoul.com.
The first remix of "In the Arms” is called the "Los Whit British Knights Remix." (Who remembers the shoes, British Knights?!) This is a high energy/trance styled remix featuring raps by Keisha (not to be confused with Ke$ha). You may have to listen a few times to understand everything that Keisha is saying, due to her British accent to go along with the fast pace.
Enjoy the inclusion of rapper Propaganda who waxes poetic and spits a few bars on the Humble Beast remix of "Don't Give Up." The best part of the song is the bridge which says, "You're the air that I breathe / The life that I need is from You / The song that I breathe / The life that I lead is worship.”
Enjoy hearing the contrasting styles in the two remixes of "New Song." One is more electronica/techno and the other is a bluegrass version. Think of a night club competing with a blue grass festival right outside. Carlos finishes things out with another remix of "In The Arms." This time featuring the always-working, KJ-52. This remix features a lot more synthesizers and goes into a little dubstep during KJ's rap. The synths seem a little too long, but its style is a keeper.
I believe this is a good accompaniment EP. It's good for working out, cruising and even worshipping.
