Ke$ha is back, well not really she has just been remixed! Ke$ha decided she wants to get you on the dance floor with her new remix album, I Am The Dance Commander + I Commander You To Dance: The Remix Album. Ke$ha’s first album Animal and then her subsequent partner release Cannibal (and double album Animal + Cannibal ) shielded a ton of hits like “Tik Tok,” “We R Who We R,” “Your Love Is My Drug” and “Blow”. “Tik Tok” was even named 2010’s most played song according to Billboard Magazine.
Ke$ha has really become the dance hit queen and she is expanding on all of her hits. “Blow,” Ke$ha’s latest single is heating up the charts and the remixed version (“Cirkut Remix”) is fun and very up-tempo. The song transitions into a slightly electronic vibe and then Ke$ha throws a short rap in the mix. “The Sleazy Remix” feels very tribal with an obvious drum in the background. This remix sounds very familiar to the original with the exception of an intro from the artist, Andre 3000.
“Tik Tok” is a classic by now. It was such a huge hit for Ke$ha. “Tik Tok (Untold Remix)” sounds like the original a little if you put it in fast forward and added a few harder beats. This version runs a little long. And then there is the “TiK Tok Chuck Buckett’s Veruca Salt Remix,” sounds (i n terms of the beats) almost entirely different than the original, with the exception of Ke$ha’s vocals and signature sounds.
In the “We R Who We R Fred Falke Club Remix” it sounds like Ke$ha took a dive in a pool and started singing, very fast! This version keeps most of the original elements just sped up. And “Blah Blah Blah (feat. 3OH!3) DJ Skeet Skeet Radio Remix” sounds mostly like the orginal, Ke$ha’s vocals get a little electronic.
“Animal Switch Remix” starts off with a softer Ke$ha. She gently sings the first few lyrics. She reminds me of Avril Lavigne on this track. The song has a beat that sounds like white noise from a TV that was a little annoying, but it added an edgy element to the song! “F**k Him He’s A DJ” has an 80’s vibe but it’s sexy! It’s actually an unreleased song, not found on any of the albums.
“Your Love Is My Drug Dave Aude Club Remix” takes a long time to get to the actual lyrics we know; there is a lot of anticipation. I get it, DJ mixes and remixes often repeat a lot of the song, but sometimes repeating a little too much can get old.
Ke$ha gets hated on so often and yet her sound is so unique and fun. You can play this entire album in a club and every song has been made into a club hit! Just plain fun.
