Love & Happiness (Yemaya Y Ochun) (MAW Remixes)
Love & Happiness (Yemaya Y Ochun) (MAW Remixes)

River Ocean Feat. India (Louie Vega)

Strictly Rhythm

Released: 23/07/07

Arguably the finest Louie Vega moment of all time, Love & Happiness might also be one of the finest house records ever committed to vinyl. Even the mere prospect of new remixes, therefore, may have some (presumably older) factions of the house community huffing, puffing and shaking their heads in general disgust. Fear not. Mr Vega hasn't let his composition stray far from home, with all the new versions having been lovingly crafted by himself and a certain Mr Carl Kenneth Gonzales of Brooklyn, NY. The MAW 07 version throbs, adding an electronic slant to what was principally an organic, tribal track, throwing in warm organ sounds in the final act. The Kenlou dub borders techno, removing the lyrics and adding a Carl Craig-esque minimalism. The Masters At Work dub takes this tack too, but with India's glorious performance right up front. And it's still as shiver-inducing as the day it was recorded. Add to this reprise versions, DJ tools and the magnificent original mixes, and this comprehensive release becomes as much a tribute to a moment in house history as it is the rebirth of the track to a whole new generation of clubbers and DJs.
