"Copy Cat" - The original breathes more a big room anthem sound with extra crisp shakers and keen synth stabs that provoke a live energy. The breakdown has a cool vocoded vocal that says "Are You Feeling This" and an all elements build that sends out an incredible rush that raises unexpected new heights and like a tidal wave, crashes out to a funky rolling ride.

"Copy Cat" (Dub) - Two components work like champs in this mix to create a winning combo. A sharp, thumping kick drum, power snares, and a wide open hi hat arrangement get the motion flowing with a force. The bass line rides in starting real choppy and fast and gradually opens up with a bright energy, more release, and a touch of resonance and reverb. Great party starter track!!!

"Cloud 9" - This musical piece is quite settling to the soul, with a fun heartwarming bass line that runs steady through the track easing a long smooth riding synth stream and funky little bass extra. The whole vibe is love, take your audience there and they will love you back.

"Warmin Up" - Crank the engine and prepare for great magnificent travels around the universe. The rhythm is dynamic and moves with the quickness. The entourage of cool resonating synth stabs are consistent throughout the whole keyboard range. The breakdown adds to the synth flavor with a clearer blend of melodies that lead to transitions that are swift and glitchy, in which keep this track moving.

"Warmin up" (Dub) - The dub mix is very fascinating in that it holds a low key, tightly wound groove with those same transient synths. The glitch edits are right on point. The track holds special quality in the mood it creates: Captivating, fun, and extremely pumping. The mixing capabilities are to not to be overlooked, acting as the performers best friend.
