Due to the massive radio success of my flashback bootleg mix of “Cry Me A River” by Justin Timberlake , I got hired by J Records / Hosh Gureli to work on the next Christina Aguilera single “Fighter” . The heavy rock vibe of the song did have radio appeal. So my mission was to pair it with retro disco or r&b track . This song was very tricky. 2003 unlike today, i did not have software like Mixed in Key to help me figure out the direction of my Mash-Up. I had to try every possible record out there and that took lots of days . I eventually found the perfect candidate . Both Christina & Hosh loved the idea at first listen. Christina however, thought the track is not perfectly tuned to her vocals. At first i was not sure but after double checking, guess what ? She was right! Went back and fixed its tuning which was off by a hair. SICK EARS HUH!
J Records never intended on clearing the samples used here which mean it will never be released officially.
Again, it leaked to radio & you know the rest .
On the CD pic its early name was (Fighter num remix).

Due to the lack of funds & total disregard by Record Labels, Most of my work is not available anywhere online. I’ve put an extensive effort in Remastering all my Productions & Remixes to make them available here on djhani.com . I had to do this before i die to save this work from extinction because no one else will .
With your support this music will live on forever . The money i make here goes to keeping this site alive & running moreover, it will encourage me to go on doing what I do best.
