My New Mariah Carey Remix!

I came out of "semi-retirement" to finish this new remix for a Mariah Carey contest! It's a mix of her current single "I'll Be Lovin' U Long Time" and you can hear it here:

I was aiming for a classic house sound, fashioned after the amazing producers Love To Infinity, Moto Blanco and the Freemasons. I tried to make it bouncy piano goodness with some strings slipped in near the end, and a darker bridge/breakdown. The pieces for the mix were all separated and I found a neat set of background vocals that were buried in the album version and brought them to the forefront (they sounded a lot like the old Love To Infinity backup singers that they used in their mixes.) I also kept the BPM to only 120 since the timestretch was challenging! Help me by voting for this mix on August 28th and beyond!
