Contemporary Christian singer Britt Nicole has released her first-ever full-length remixes collection. Simply titled The Remixes, the 12-track album spans Britt’s eight-year career (since her debut with You in 2007). Sparrow Records has released a lyric video for Set the World On Fire, which receives a facelift courtesy of resident Sparrow Records rixer Neon Feather (who also worked some ridiculously awesome dancefloor magic with Mandisa’s Back to You).
The Neon Feather reworking of Britt’s acoustic original works for me. It retains a lot of the heart of the original, but brings in some welcome EDM elements, include some rich synth undertones and perky keyboard tones that build up to a satisfying instrumental. After the success of the Gold remixes–the Jason Nevins and Lark remixes of that track are found on The Remixes, although the Wideboys remix is sorely missed–I can hear Set the World on Fire (Neon Feather Remix) played in clubs and youth services. The entire album itself is quite delicious–I find it even better than Britt’s Sparrow labelmate Mandisa’s The Remixes project, which was underwhelming simply because she’d already previously released so many of the tracks on that full-length–and I’d recommend many of the tracks on Britt’s remixes project, but the standout is the can’t-miss MyKidBrother remix of Holiday. That should have been the single, frankly.
