This is a remix EP from the lead song "Movin" off his 2010 album 'Fresh Air'. It contains four remixes of the song and was released a year later. The song itself is a passionate call to the Church and Christians in today's problem ridden society and covers topics such as abortion and divorce with compassion. The song motivates us to "Keep it movin, hard for Christ" with the message of the Gospel. It also includes the brilliant line that only Jesus could use "the tomb as a visitors' room" with resurrection three days later. The EP leads with the original version of the song with its flow resounding with percussion and strings. The second mix is stripped back and minimal, to let the vocals shine along with backing vocals. On "Movin (At Ante Up)" the mix brings out the raw, gritty sound of Alan's rap with a totally different organic sound (live drums, guitar, etc). The EP is rounded off with a live performance at sevenoseven complete with a live band, similar to the previous track but in a live concert environment.
