After a one-year long hiatus, Rejoice Records are back stronger than ever with this jaw-dropping collaboration by label honcho Andrew Hartley and legendary New York gospel vocalist SuSu Bobien. Quite simply "Survivor" is top-notch soulful house music having made for eternity, using an infectious funk soaked backing as playground for SuSu Bobien's inimitable gospel tinged vocals, grand jazzy keys and melodious chords. On remix duty are Rhemi (Neil Pierce & Ziggy Funk) who add their signature touch and turn the song into a peak time banger, Mannix contributes a fetching soul/funk infused modern Disco rework oozing with a gorgeous lively feel, and finally Thommy Davis, Greg Lewis & Hoazy take things straight to church on their inspiring interpretation fueled with a grandiose organ.
