Sheena Easton – 101 (Def House Mix) Remixed by David Morales

 

Scottish pop singer Sheena Easton rose to fame in the 1980s with hit singles ‘Modern Girl’ and ‘9 to 5 (Morning Train).’ The track ‘101,’ which was written for her by mega-superstar Prince, reached number two on the Billboard Dance Chart in 1989. Although it initially reached criticism for not being radio friendly, people gradually began to appreciate Sheena’s desire to expand herself artistically. Vanguard of House music, David Morales went on to do a remix, arguably his first truly acclaimed remix, which further increased the track’s popularity.

    I was so pleased to see this on your recent excellent compilation. I have often put this on and ask people to guess who is singing. About 70% don’t get it. I am the proud owner of the 3″ CD single. One of Moralist’ best although I maintain his greatest remix is the 10 minute sound odyssey he takes us on on Mariah Carey’s Dream Lover (Def Mix). Mariah always used to do a special remix ‘for the gays’.
    My favourite remix of all time, although freely available now is the Cowley mix of I Feel Love. Even better than the original. Also, check out the Freekout (Respect To Chic) Mix of Spacer by Sheila & B Devotion. Total class.

    The Sheila Remix can only be found on ‘The Complete Disco Years’ Compilation and is Spacer (The Freak Out Respect to Chic Inédit). A quite radical dissection of a classic. worth a listen.
