"We cannot stop playing Cuica's Brazilian-spackled remix of Maria Muldaur's 1974 top 10 hit, "Midnight At The Oasis." It's sunny, disco-laced rhythmsare tailor made for the lazy, hazy days of summer. This is the type of postcard-perfect remix that, if you didn't know better, you might think was the original version of the song. The tune's new musical bed- concocted by Cuica's Peter Herbert and Simone Serritella - sweetly surrounds Muldaur's blues-tinged vocals. This rerub is one of many highlights on What Is Hip? Remix Project Vol. 1 due on November 2nd. Other choice cuts include Nicolette Larson's "Lotta Love" (remixed by Nic Jodoin), Gary Wright's "Dreamweaver (Supreme Beings of Leisure), America's "Ventura Highway" (Deepsky), Rod Stewart's "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy" (Halou) and Charles Wright's "Express Yourself" (Mocean Worker). The lead single "Philip Steir's mix of Seals & Croft's "Summer Breeze," is making headway at radio."" — Billboard - July 24, 2004
