“Beauty never beats in a heart of wax, it comes down to that”

Following the success of her Top 40 Billboard Hot Dance Club Play single “CONSEQUENCES (THE REMIXES)” and tender late night grinder “HEART OF WAX (THE REMIXES)” PT. I, VANESSA DAOUreturns with the long-awaited companion set “HEART OF WAX (THE REMIXES)” PT. II. Much like her previous dance releases, the single is sure to gain support from the international DJ cognoscenti who have continually championed the sensual and provocative dance/electronic icon including QUENTIN HARRIS, ROBERTO RODRIGUEZ (aka MANOLO), TEDD PATTERSON, HEC ROMERO, ERIC KUPPER, BENJI CANDELARIO, KING BRITT, DIXON, SHAHROKH SOUND OF K. and TERRY LEE BROWN JR., DAOU dives deeper into the sultry slow-burner to unearth a dynamic set of mixes largely aimed at the dancefloor. Where PT. I was a decidedly more subtle club excursion, PT.II amps up the energy delivering a more pumped selection of sweaty big room workouts courtesy of RICHARD MOREL, CRAIG C., and EMJAE, while the closing salvo from BLANK & JONES slows things down to put the final exclamation point on the simmering, emotive ballad, 

MOREL cleverly recasts the original into a gritty and sexy, primetime floor-filler laced with his signature progressive/alternative grooves that propelled his mixes for artists like YOKO ONO, CYNDI LAUPER, LILY ALLEN, LA ROUX, DEPECHE MODE, NEW ORDER and THE KILLERS to the top of the club charts. The mix has become a staple in his DJ sets at his BLOWOFF bi-monthly residences (with partner,BOB MOULD) in DC, New York and San Francisco.

Denver-based producer/remixer CRAIG C. takes a more above-ground approach to his mixes, reshaping the song into a sun splashed summer anthem heaving with swirling filtered synths, pulsating rhythms and melodic guitar riffs. EMJAE (aka MATT JOHNSON of Boston-based nu-disco outfit NIGHTRIDERS) serves up two distinct interpretations – the more commercial, 90s house inspired “Club Mix” (think Robin S. and Nightcrawlers meet Kylie Minogue)and the hypnotic, minimal glitch-house flavored “Subterranean Disco Dub”. BLANK & JONES round out the package with their trademark brand of pastoral moodscapes and hazy Balearic downbeats.
