Mariah Carey‘s onslaught of “#Beautiful” remixes continues today with the song’s long-awaited dance overhaul courtesy of 1980s house music pioneer Louie Vega. If you were expecting a bone-shaking, revved-up Dave Aude-style remix, you might be disappointed. This is quite similar to the retro “Triumphant” dance mix that polarized the Lambily in 2012.
Vega’s mix is very old school – some might say dated – but I think that’s entirely intentional. It suits the original’s soft, textured sound. Raising the BPMs would have completely killed the’s song vintage vibe. Listen to Mimi’s floorfiller after the jump.
