The "DJ T.´s ReWork" spreads the arrangement wider, and DJ T. draws even more groove from the original with his dub version. A deep bass swing drives the track, and increases its intensifying atmosphere. Cari´s silken tones are dropped in snippets over the build ups, break downs and that irresistible melody, and a new urgent chord progression takes it to its peak.
For the remix package, two of house musics young guns have put their fresh spin on "City Life". Maceo Plex offers a warm house rework that is built on a sampled guitar pulse and ghostly, floaty strings. The Spanish talent hones in on a deep funk bass line, a squiggly electro melody and heavily delayed handclaps. The distinctive melody of the original drifts back through keys and filtered steel drum sounds, adding a carnivalesque feel.
Maya Jane Coles is renowned for her sleek and airy production work, and she offers nothing less than that with her remix. A gentle dub treatment and an expertly pitched down tempo strike a deep hypnotic groove, while Cari´s calming voice is bathed in reverb.
