After his well received artist album "Pilgremage", the TCR honcho returns with some remixes of one of the main tracks on the album. So TCR brings you the remix versions of Celeb, check it out!

Rennie Pilgrem - Celeb (Remixes)(TCR)

Rennie Pilgrem, the king of UK Breakbeat to some or just one of the members of the driving force behind world breaks to others has returned, after the release of his debut artist album called "Pilgremage" in September 2004. Pilgrem wrote this as a rant against ten-a-penny celebrities. He brought in MC Chickaboo, who seems to be popular with Breakbeat artists, these days for this tune and now TCR are releasing some new versions of it, joining Pilgrem on this remix package is the very talented Smithmonger.

A1.Rennie's Paisley Park Mix


People have described this as Rennie Pilgrem meets Prince but I did not listen to Prince growing up, so I borrowed my brother's Prince CD to find out. Anyway, for the first mix, Rennie Pilgrem goes funky breaks, the track contains this really addictive hook with some nice guitar hooks, which I imagine were not computer made. This mix still contains the annoying vocal, that still just gets under my skin. The lyrics talking about how celebrities are famous for nothing is true but MC Chickaboo's vocals have never found favor with me and I'm sure why. This will work well in the clubs and will cause some dancefloor mayhem but the vocal just kills it for me.

B1.Smithmonger Mix

Smithmonger seems to be Pilgrem's choice remixer these days and how can you go wrong with the Aussies, who seem to be turning out amazing remix after remix. This mix is just absolutely nasty and downright filthy, which is the way that I like my tribal house and breaks. This mix starts with an "ahhh" vocal sample and some weird sound effects and the vocal is altered at times, which is a good thing because I am not sure how much more of it I could stand without running off and hiding. The beats are just raw and I think this could be called "the club mix" because it is certainly directed at the clubber. This is why Pilgrem chose Smithmonger, besides the fact that they turn out excellent remixes but they aim for the club, not the home listener. The mix picks up from there and takes you on a ride, giving you a healthy dose of nasty stuff. I like the fact that they don't use the vocal that much here because as I have stated before, the vocal just bothers me and I'm not sure what Pilgrem saw in it. Very well done mix and just how I like my breaks, raw and mean.

B2.Instrumental Mix

Now as I stated in the Pilgremage review, I wanted a dub mix of this song and maybe Pilgrem was listening but I bet he had already planned that ahead of time. Anyway, the final mix of this package is a true dub mix, it uses such vocal that you forget that the original mix had one. The thing that makes dub mixes, so good is that, they tend to allow you appreciate the track elements in greater detail. I realize how much guitar was actually used and I also appreciate how funky the original track was. The vocal is not here to take my attention away and I like the song, much more but I still dislike the vocal. I think it was smart of TCR to offer the instrumental mix because not everyone is going to like the vocal and it gives the record buyer some variety from which to choose from.

Conclusion:
The song is well thought out but this vocal just drives me up the wall and it saps whatever joy I have in it. You might like it or you might agree with me and hate it but kudos to TCR for at least attempting to be different and they are right, celebrities are usually famous for nothing.
