Re: Mix Momentum Review

by Steve Losey

Tobymac busted from the remains of dc Talk in 1999 to release one of the most intense offerings that 2001 had to offer. In 2003 the songs resurfaced in the form of Re: Mix Momentum. Cuts like the remix of "Yours" rise from the ashes with a shotgun blast to the face as Mac charges ahead on all cylinders, delivering a cut with attitude. The first version of "Love Is in the House" is a mix featuring gospel-tinged musicianship, while the vocals delivered by Mac and crew are some of the disc's best. The other version of "Love in the House" is a slant by Dan Muckala. The tune is stripped down with some gospel vocal nuances that excel. Remixed by Jack Shockley, "Extreme Days" takes on a life of its own. The cut changes from full-force power on the chorus to scaled-back, bare-bones production that really grooves, proving less is sometimes more. Re: Mix is a disc that presents classic Mac in several tasty flavors.
