Vera Blue - "Lady Powers" / Remix

Thank you Aneta Grulichova from for this review on Maria Marcus remix of the fast rising Australian star Vera Blue and her song "Lady Powers"


"Vera Blue's Lady Powers is an amazing, empowering song about being respected as a woman and being comfortable in one's own skin without using sexuality to do so.

The original version is already incredible with its hypnotic '80s electro beats and soaring vocals to accompany Celia Pavey's empowering lyrics. Swedish producer Maria Marcus' remix takes the song to a whole new level, giving it a more grooving disco beat while still keeping it true to Blue's. Of the excellent lot, Marcus' version is the shining star, a tune you'll be hearing in the club."
