Overview

The first sequel to the popular Red Hot + Blue album, a connecting theme this time is ditched for a survey of dance music and its top remixers circa 1992. Brought into being with a generous push from George Michael, it's no surprise that the album starts off with three tracks from the man himself, one of which ("Too Funky") had the good sense to get into the charts. All three are from the last time in the '90s that Michael was funky and had a sense of fun. Elsewhere there are remixes of popular hits (Madonna, Seal, PM Dawn, EMF, Crystal Waters) that don't deviate from, or surpass, the original mixes. Nellee Hooper's remix of the Young Disciples' "Apparently Nothin'" strips the original down to beat and sparse keys; Todd Terry has the unenviable task of remixing Sly Stone's "Thank You (Falettin Me Be Mice Elf Again)" without any access to studio tapes -- the results are inevitably underwhelming. Also missing are the resonations with the AIDS crisis that the original Gershwin tribute had -- only the George Michael song "Do You Really Want to Know" and the ending theme by Tomandandy even mention it.
