I was just listening to this recently and noticed how it contains almost all of the different types of remixes Mariah has done throughout her career.
1) Resung remixes containing melodies that are totally different from the album version: Steve J. Remix / Pure Imagination (Damizza Reemix). Mariah gave us not one, but TWO resung remixes! These are in the vein of "TGIFY (Make It Last)" and "My All (Stay Awhile)", and usually sample other songs.
2) Resung club mixes: The Morales' Classic Club Mix, featuring Mariah adlibing freely over a dance track (a signature that defined her specially in her work with David Morales).
3) Dub Mixes: The Kings Mix. These type of remixes contain excerpts of Mariah's vocals and adlibs, usually altered and employed as part of the instrumental and beat. The melodic progressions are even more "freestlye" than the ones found on regular club mixes which usually try to be more reminiscent of the original song's melody.
I think the only types of Mariah remixes missing on this EP are: 1) Remixes that replicate Mariah's vocals from the original version over a different beat (i.e. Dreamlover's Club Joint Mix), 2) Remixes with incorporated or extended raps (Breakdown's "Mo Thugs Remix", "I Don't" Remix), and 3) Resung remixes that follow (relatively closely) the melody of the original version (i.e. ABMB "Mr. Dupri" mixes).
Do you agree? Do you think there's another body of work that is a better example of Mariah's versatility as a remixer?
