YAHOO MUSIC REVIEW: FLORA CRUZ TRIPS THE LIGHT FANTASTIC - SEPTEMBER 5, 2008



NO YOU DIN'T! Flora Cruz Mixtape: I love this: doofus house beats and Hispanic vocals prancing like it's club land in NYC circa 1987. I used to know a security guard whose favorite word was "Fierce," and she was! Back then I was a jazz drummer, making do as the jazz buyer at Tower Records Lincoln Center. My friend would invite me to the Palladium or the Tunnel for a night out dancing, beating the floor, drinking, maybe cruising a Gay bar or two. I loved her. She scared me. She would love this music.

"Mixtape Sessions is proud to bring you the latest offering from Flora Cruz. Released in January 2008, 'Overcome' is about the struggles of living day to day. This song is for anyone who's learned to overcome real adversity in their life. Since its release, the feedback on her 'Overcome' EP has been wonderful. In particular, producers, DJs, and music lovers have all felt a strong connection with the EP's title track and its empowering messages. We received so many requests to remix 'Overcome' that we had to release them all. Here, we feature incredible remixes from noted dance music producers from around the world including: Phil Hooton, Glenn Thornton, Matt Hughes, and Anderson Soares."
