Donna Allen’s 1999 gem ‘He Is The Joy’ is a track with dancefloor capabilities that have reverberated over the last two decades, and is a perfect example of how the combination of a powerhouse diva vocal and expert production (here courtesy of Brian Tappert and Marc Pomeroy) can rarely go wrong. Now a pair of remixes update this record box essential for the 2020s. Up first, Alan Dixon and Darren Morris bring their signature disco-laced sound to the release, delivering a serious dose of funk to the soulful original, as melodic keys and vintage-sounding percussion come into play for some blissful dancefloor nostalgia. Up next party-starting Italian duo Alaia & Gallo up the ante with their remix, chopping up the vocal as a resounding bassline and hypnotic drums make the record destined for dancefloor dynamite.
