Take one already great song, add a pinch of magical remix dust, give it a stir, and what do you get? The Reel People remix of Debórah Bond‘s “You Are The One,” that’s what. I’ll admit I’m slightly biased as I’m truly, madly, deeply in love with Debórah’s Madam Palindrome album, and Reel People are always guaranteed to cook up some goodness in the studio, so the pairing of the two was always going to be right up my street. The bones of the original have been maintained — hey, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it — but the guys have given the track a soulful house spin, upping the tempo ever so slightly, giving it a whole new lease of life. “You Are The One” is getting a re-release on the Reel People Music label, and the single release will include this remix. Let’s hope this is the start of a long and fruitful collaboration.
