This track first appeared on her album of the same name, and now we have some tasty remixes. Included on side A are the incredibly funky jazz-n-groove "Prime Time Club Mix" and a dub mix of the same name. The beats are much stronger and a little faster (123bpm), the bass is heavier and choppy, flanged guitar riffs fill the mix. Kim's gospel-influenced vocals are always uplifting and perfectly complement the high quality production showcased here. "Don't fret about what tomorrow brings: just focus on the higher things". The effective message couldn't be more obvious! The B side houses the original mix and a broken down jazz-n-groove mix, which may as well not be there in my opinion, though I'm sure more creative DJs will have fun with it. Kim English already has a good reputation in the US garage scene. This release raises the profile further.
