90s smash hit ‘U R The Best Thing’ gets updated for 2019 with this remix package, featuring reworks from Kevin McKay, Stuart King and Discomode.
D:Ream – formed of Peter Cunnah and Al Mackenzie – first rose to prominence with ‘U R The Best Thing’ in 1992. Whilst the song did not initially chart, it was re-released in 1993 and soon gained popularity: the band soon were nominated for Best Dance Act in the MTV Europe Music Awards, and for Best Single in the 1995 Brit Awards. To add to their accolades, the band had eight Top 40 hits, and supported Take That on their tour. Subsequently their 1994 single ‘Things Can Only Get Better’ topped the UK Singles charts. D:Ream dominated the dance/pop scene and are the ultimate 90s dream.
The three remixes take the timeless 90s track and refresh it. Glasgow Underground label honcho Kevin McKay turns in a slamming slice of house that fits the uplifting vocals just right. Stuart King turns in an enigmatic prog-house fuelled remix and Discomode go filter crazy on a hard filtered house remix.
The 90s are back and reshaped for 2019!
