This report extracted from Billboard Magazine's Dance Trax:
SOUL FOOD: Like Mariah Carey, Arista's Whitney Houston is conscious of her strong and loyal fan base in the club community. She also knows the power of a good remix. That said, be very prepared for what she and her label have planned.
While "When You Believe", Houston's duet with Carey from the film "The Prince of Egypt" is the first official radio-primed track culled from the singer's album "My Love Is Your Love", the track being serviced to clubs is "It's Not Right But It's Okay".
Remixers Chris Cox and Barry Harris, who prefer to work under the guise of Thunderpuss 2000 - and who made quite a name for themselves with the fab reconstruction of Billie Myers' "Kiss The Rain" - have turned this Rodney Jerkins-produced jam into a peak houser.
By keeping their deft studio wizardry wisely in the background, the Thunderpuss guys give Houston ample room to sing this tale (of a woman showing her man the door). In fact, Houston doesn't simply sing, she soars. For club pundits who find the work of Thunderpuss 2000 not underground enough, there's always the dubby Johnny Vicious version.
Unfortunately, these remixes are only available on a promo-only 12-inch. Of course, those who can get their grubby li'l hands on a copy will be royally rewarded.
