Paul Van Dyk - Crush
Following on from last year's release of Nothing But You and Time Of Our Lives, Paul van Dyk comes back with a remixed version of Crush that's also available on the Reflections album. As expected from an artist who's picked up five Dancestar nominations, Crush will fill dancefloors across the UK, South East Asia and Mexico, where van Dyk has just toured and the US, where he's indicated his involvement in this year's Rock The Vote campaign.
With vocals from Second Sun, who are signed to van Dyk's Vandit record label, the euphoric dance track is twisted by the brooding lyrics and across four remixes - a Radio Edit, an Extended Mix, a Vandit Club Mix and a Hyper Remix - of varying quality. The 10m23s Vandit Club Mix is an endurance test for the home listener but the Hyper Remix is great, mixing break beats onto van Dyk's original techno, making it a clash of sleek dance and frenetic percussion.
