"Satellites" was originally released as a single in Europe shortly after the album's release in 2005. It finally found a home in the states with Robbins Entertainment, the label responsible for bringing us Ian Van Dahl, Lasgo, and Reina. I am glad this union came to fruition, because the import single for this song contained fairly uninteresting mixes.
The "US" mix is fairly faithful to the original with a few poppy quirks. The "Extended" (which is less than 5 minutes long, a crappy extended mix) is alright, but it's just the album version with a bit of length. The Electro mix is fun, but a tad boring. The Club Junkies provide the first interesting remix, giving us a Euro-styled club trance mix. Not amazing, but pretty good. Clubstar provide us with a more aggressive mix reminiscent of Cascada with the pounding beats, although I'm not overly fond of it. It's got a nice piano melody though. Flip N' Fill provide something I'm sure most aren't used to from them. Their mix is not nearly as fast as some of their other mixes. Pretty fun!
The winner here though, is the Dancing DJs mix. Full on trance with Petra's AMAZING vocals, a big stadium sound, and a fantastic beat. This remix really is not to be missed!
All in all this is a fantastic introduction to September. I hope to see more of them in the future, and DEFINITELY check out the album, In Orbit.
very nice song and production from this group called "september", has a kind of early 80s disco feel, nice melody, nice production, and a hook that will pull you in from the next room..the only downside to this song is the vocalist, her vocals are barely passable, one will never confuse her with france joli....highly recomended
The best mix isn't even on this CD maxi single. The best remix is by Dor Dekel. It's more progressive yet not as progressive like a fast paced adrenaline amphetamine mix. You can watch her remixed music video on Youtube.com. You can also download the Satellites Dor Dekel mix at RemixedGalore.com. And it's free. I love this song it's catchy not like all the hip hop crap coming out in the US where every singer(opps rapper) is black and a white singer gets criticized for just being a white singer/artist.
Love it love it love it! Can't wait to pick up some of her other material. I've seen a few videos (including a very cool acoustic version of Satelites). A wonderful voice through and through. A must for those who love dance music...
