JAMES LEON, “I Thought You Were My Friend” (Pollarik ’86 remix)
Artists should never give up on a good song. Originally released last year, London-based singer/songwriter James Leon attracted some fair attention with “I Thought You Were My Friend”. Despite its strong lyrics, I think the mix of the song was missing something. Producer/remixer Pollarik has worked on some of James’ other songs, so who better to reignite “Friend” with a sizzling 80’s-flavoured remix that is just begging for a dance floor complete with mirror disco ball. James’ vocal sounds great too in this strut-worthy mix. Electronic dance music fans, especially those with retro dance fever, will have a blast with this one.
