Madonna - Turn Up The Radio : Official Mixes

Turn Up The Radio blazes into the Top 10 of the US Dance Club Play Chart taking the # 8 slot!
Just last week, it was duly noted to have amazingly jumped 20 spots from #39 to # 19. Madonna is the all-time top-ranked artist on this niche chart and it appears she's aiming for another #1 soon with this single. A lot of boost comes from the fact that TUTR's remixes have already created the necessary attention some weeks before unlike it's two predecessors which had their remixes hit the clubs only after the official single releases (both GMAYL & GGW went on to top the same niche chart anyway).

As early as April, 3 exclusive remixes of the song taken from the Smirnoff Nightlife Editions of MDNA have been extensively played in clubs thus giving it a commanding presence even before it was announced to become a single. The explosive trance-tastic mixes by Richard Vission and Marco V equally made the best impressions each time they get heard while the same could not be said of the Leo Zero Remix which takes the energy down with it's unexciting rendition. 

Four months later, the official mixes popped themselves simultaneously much to the elation of excited fans who have been forever anticipating the Queen of Pop's fourth release off MDNA. I can never deny my exuberance upon hearing (and dancing to) each of the mixes. First heard were the uncannily similar yet uniquely structured progressive house productions of Offer Nissim and R3hab that definitely set the clubs afire! Came next was the club mix of the track's main man himself, Martin Solveig. Undoubtedly, this is the BEST of them all. It can be remembered that i criticized TUTR (in my track-by-track review for MDNA) for it's tendency to get draggy especially on the unecessarily lengthy bridge part that really needs to be shortened. Well, Martin did exactly what i wanted to get rectified: he effectively reduced the bridge part by beginning with "...turn up the noise and turn up the volume," and also added his own vocals on "...until the speakers blow!" Even if my wish for an edited single version wasn't fulfilled, this mix (and it's Radio Edit) made up for it.

The last one to make an entrance was done by Laidback Luke and features Far East Movement on rapping duties that rekindle memories of Technotronic's 1990 single Pump Up The Jam (if you're a 90s jammer then you knew it as soon as you heard them rap the song title). This mix will attempt to duplicate the public's somewhat positive reception of Give Me All Your Luvin's Party Rock Remix which featured LMFAO; however, the moment the two mixes get played one after another, TUTR's mix obtrusively is weaker.
