Chris Malinchak + The Magician

Chris Malinchak's "If You Got It" was one of last year's best tracks, and it's one that still spreads that warm feeling every time you hear it. That means two things if you want to remix it: it will be hard to make a completely crap version. But it also means that there is a huge risk that your audience will be greatly underwhelmed by the result compared with such a great original especially if you make something completely different. So, embarking on such a venture is a bold move even if you're a producer of The Magician's calibre.

And how does he fare? Why, very well. Very well indeed. Stephen dares to do something different, but still awesome. Not only is it just as funky as the original, but it is so in more of an uptempo party kind of way, whereas the original is much more mellow. In a way I also think this track sums up the nu disco/deephouse fuse that we've seen over the last couple of years, with it's deep bass and catchy synth stabs. And obviously it's a fuse that Stephen has played a big part in.

Quite a trick you pulled off there maestro!
