DJ feedback for Billie Ray Martin’s new tune “After All”

Billie Ray Martin - After All (cover)which includes a vocal and an instrumental remix by yours truly. I feel happy that Billie’s cover version of David Bowie’s “After All” is receiving reactions ranging from nice till enthusiastic and feel privileged to be part of that EP. Here you can preview my mixes on my Soundcloud. Below you’ll find fine DJ feedback comments by the likes of Luke Solomon, Kim Ann Foxman, Aerea Negrot, amongst others.
And this is the lovely original video of Billie walking down Potsdamer Strasse in Berlin-Schöneberg.

Luke Solomon: A spectacular vocal over some brilliantly haunting house music.whats not to love.full support from me both club and radio.

Aerea Negrot: This is Hot!! It’s a trip!

Zerocrop: Majestic! Peerless!

Severino(HMD-Classic-Hot Creations)
A great interpretation of a David Bowie song ..original is mysterious and sexy .
Really like Mijk Van Dijk rmx..Sexy and perfect for a 6am set …Electribe 101 vibe(ish)
Top job

Kim Ann Foxman (Hercules and Love Affair)
Really nice release!! I’m really feeling the Caesar Gergess mix! its really deep and fresh. i also really like the Mijk van Dijk mixes a lot too! nice one!!! Billie sounds great.

Dan beaumont (Dalston superstore)
Gorgeous. I love the aesthetic of a simple kick and juno bass (?) combo at the start and the way it develops. Love the vocal of course. Original above the remixes for me

Simon mills (Napoleon)
LOVE the tracks. They are completely what I’m into – can hear a little homage to Electribe in there with the brassy pads and minimal basslines… very atmospheric, so obviously I will be really into them! Great stuff.

Electrosexual (Romain)
i adore the Mijk Van Dijk version of After All! so smooth and slick! what a performance! full support (mixtape, dj, radio)!

Snuff Crew: Love theremix! Great EP 🙂 SNUFF CREW (SNUFF TRAX/BPitch Control)

Owain Kimber (Artform Records/ Poker Flat): Nice package, think the dub mix works the best for me – has a really smooth flow that’ll work well late @ night 🙂 Great

DJ Nartak (Eternaldancer/ Spain): congrats for this fine collaboration! I like the Mijk van Dijk Dub Mix most. Subtle and smooth, great building up.

“I love whats already there, the sparse production is
absolutely the right idea with such a distinctive vocalist,
you need to give it space. I just feel one extra element
would tie it together groove wise to make it great . still
love it tho, thanks for sending. cool use of nightwriters
style cowbells on the MVD remixes :)”

Loving it!
Especially the Ceaser Gergess Dub – the trumpet is awesome!!!
The bass line is gorgeous and takes me right back to where I fell in love with Hands Up & Amen, and The Beloved’s early work. SO infectious!!
Nadia Says (Your Mom’s)
“How to make house sound playful and quirky yet sleek and velvety. Can’t decide between the original and the Ceasar Gergess remix, guess I’ll have to play them hundred times to make my choice.”

Waterson: OMG!!!!!!!! Miss Thing has gone and hit the Bowie nail on the House head! Love every version, each providing something ‘else’! Quality, depth, class, poshness. Her vocal quality is sublime, the vocal range divine and the harmony arrangement is from another universe! Amazing release!

Lady Bunny: Great song ,with her smoky, pensive voice and some demented back-ups!
