"(I Got A) Feeling In My Body"

new remix CD single from Mick Gerace

11 August 2007

...Carefully poised dance remix designed to appeal to long time Elvis fans and dance floor enthusiasts...

Leading Australian ETA, Mick Gerace, is about to launch (see details below) a "dance" remix of one of Elvis' lesser known soul recordings, (I Got A) Feeling In My Body. Originally released by The King on the 1974 album "Good Times" and more recently on the 1998 CD album, Essential Elvis Vol. 5 "Rhythm and Country", the track is one of the superior, yet little known recordings by Elvis in the 1970s.

For his remix, Mick Gerace has aimed his recording at the dance floor market while being mindful not to alienate long time Elvis fans.

What is impressive about this release is the way Gerace manages to so effectively blend a "soul" vocal with a "dance" beat. Gerace pours his heart and soul into his interpretation, a carefully balanced very deep vocal reflecting the soulness of the lyric as it potently bounces off its underlying dance rhythms.

From the opening crescendo of a world famous backing group resonating "got a feeling", to the pounding bass beat backing and powerful vocal, this is an assured production.

With minimal (but effective) elements (far from overbearing in their execution) of hypno-trance, Mick Gerace and his production team have managed to produce a very strong dance track which has enough Elvis intonations to keep most fans more than happy.

As is needed to bring Elvis' music to a new generation, "(I Got A) Feeling In My Body" has very competently used current production techniques and styles to give a classic track a contemporary feel and vibe.

As for the world famous backing group on the remix...Mick Gerace is backed by none other than the Sweet Inspirations!

Verdict: "(I Got A) Feeling In My Body" is an assured production which delicately and successfully poises its appeal to both dance floor enthusiasts and long time Elvis fans. If you liked the Elvis vs JXL remix and the underground takes of Rubberneckin', you will welcome the latest Mick Gerace release.

"(I Got A) Feeling In My Body" will be released in Australia by Sony BMG
