Dizzee Rascal's very own imprint Dirtee Stank collaborates with the Universal Music Group to unleash remixes of his hit "Dance Wiv Me" on the german market. A bit late as the original featuring the massive Agent X Niche-relick has been available as import for a while and made its way into the crates of all Grime-/ UK Urban-loving jocks already. As one might guess Agent X' relick is missing on the german promo 12", which is a real pity as it might have hleped to push Niche / Bassline forward here coze the style is mostly unheard of by german punters, but remixers like DJ Frizzo and DJ Teddy-O & Benny Blanco deliver proper but not essential Urban reworks here that are about to work more commercial or unexperienced crowds right and introduce the so-called voice of Grime to a wider audience. On the other side we've got Phatclick Swayze & Alec Cresp's remix attempt failing while delivering a piece of slow cheesy boring House. A dispensable case of bandwagon jumping.
