Elevate Difference

Reminted

When I received this CD in the mail, I must say that I was disappointed. The Fort Knox Five, who claim they don't remix songs, they remint them, which kept with the theme and designed their CD cover to be reminiscent of a $5 bill. Clever packaging, but I thought I was actually being sent money, so to find that it was in fact a CD was a bit of a let-down.

I felt better after I popped the disc in, though. Featuring 12 “reminted” tracks by various artists, the CD is thoroughly ‘70s, with funky retro beats that give the album a nice feel. As with all remixes, the tracks do go on quite a bit, but are a lot more listenable than the standard remix fare because there's more going on musically than the usual 20-minute drum machine solo. If you want to play dance music at your next party that won't bore everyone to tears, keep this disc in mind.
