As would be expected, nearly half of the remixes chosen for the compilation are by Hex Hector, simply because it was his remixes of the sleeper hit "Things Just Ain't the Same" and the pop crossover smash "Nobody's Supposed to Be Here" which both established Deborah as a clubland diva. Filling out the CD with earlier remixes by David Morales and newer remixes by Mike Rizzo, Valentin, and Danny Sullivan & Kemist give the CD a real sense of variety.
The team of Al B Rich, Albert Castillo and Rich Pangilian, did an incredible job mixing the CD by concentrating on a really strong flow.

Choosing favorite songs off the CD is difficult because just about every song on here was a big record for me in the club. "Who Do You Love" was the song that won me over as a Deborah Cox fan so it holds a special place in my DJ bag. Hex's Retrofuture mix of "It's Over Now" also takes me back to a very special circuit party weekend I played a few years back. We are all going to have our own favorities because there isn't a weak track on here. Though as much as I like Valentin's energetic and radio-embraced mix of "Something Happened," I think its missing a bit of the charm of the infamous Nic Mercy white label. Mentioning the absence of Johnny Vicious' incredible mix of "Just Be Good to Me" might seem nitpicky especially since having more than one cover song on a dance CD is rarely a good thing. But Deborah Cox "Remixed" is an essential CD purchase for any fan of vocal house music. Combining Deborah's incredible vocals, powerful well written songs and clubland's best remixers in a tightly mixed energetic set makes a brilliant CD for everyone.
