Mixing It Up

It's been almost a decade since Britt Nicole took the Christian music industry by storm with her charismatic personality, powerhouse vocals and sweet spirit. The Grammy and Dove Award nominated Sparrow/Capitol recording artist has since done big things and made a name for herself in both the CCM world and most recently in the mainstream pop world with her smash hit "Gold," the title track from her last full-length project three years ago.
In anticipation of a new album coming this fall, Britt is releasing her first ever full-length remix album simply titled The Remixes, showcasing new arrangements of some of Britt's biggest hits over the years.
Former Family Force 5 frontman Soul Glow Activatur lends his talents to the project on the PHENOMENON remixes of "Ready Or Not (feat. Lecrae)" and "Walk On The Water," bringing a unique sound to each. Neon Feather puts a fun spin on "The Lost Get Found," while remix masters Capital Kings add another level of techno vibes to the already dance-worthy "Amazing Life."
Some of the more vulnerable songs in Britt's discography are revisited as well. "All This Time (Pro Fit Remix)" takes on a more electronic feel and "The Sun Is Rising (Horizon Remix)" steps up the tempo and makes a beautiful recreation of a much-loved song of encouragement.
Serving its purpose of giving fans some new dance tunes to jam to, "Glow (J Sapp Remix)" and two revised versions of "Gold" (Lark and Jason Nevins Rhythmic Radio remixes) close out the album on a high energy note.
Remix albums are tricky things, testing the artist's ability to keep the originality that made the song so great in the first place while changing it enough to make it fresh and different. In this case, Britt pulls it off well. Each song proved to be transformed for the better, and it never felt like too much or too little.
Now a wife and mom, much has changed about Britt Nicole's life recently, but the way she puts so much heart and talent into her music has stayed the same. As we all anticipate new songs from the pop princess of CCM, I'm sure these remixes will be a great way to keep us happy and to keep us dancing.
