Alex Millsâ€™ Remix of An OG House Track is Like Musical Inception
You probably donâ€™t know it by name, but when you hear the original version of â€œEverybody Be Somebodyâ€ at the club, youâ€™ll probably recognize it. The song was originally released in 1995, when the ridiculously popular house music group Ruffneck first released it â€” and it has since been mixed and remixed again by a multitude of DJâ€™s and artists.
The original was apparently based on a sample from â€œBostichâ€ by the Swiss synthpop band, Yello, (better known for their 1985 hit “Oh Yeah” featured in the famous film, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off) â€” so itâ€™s basically a song within a song.
To add yet another inception-like layer, songstress Alex Mills has just released her take on it â€” breathing fresh life into an old-house fave for us to keep dancinâ€™ to.
Alex has been deemed an electronic music specialist and says, â€œmost tracks tend to convey what they want from you in either the chords, the groove, or the emotion. A good use of the space allowing the music to breathe is important, but essentially, Electronic music is no different from any other: a good song is a good song.â€
Alexâ€™s musical vibe is home grown 90â€™s house music since thatâ€™s what she was raised on, having worked with Basement Jazz, Lee Foss, and many others. â€œBe Somebody,â€ marks Alexâ€™s first solo release, â€œI always loved the original…I thought it would be cool to give it a back story and make it into a whole new animal. I hope I was able to achieve that.â€
