Hypnotic robotic

Why is Missy Elliott the unofficial mash-up queen? Every new single of hers in the past three years has spawned version after version, some of them fun, most of them awful. I guess it's all Richard X's fault -- the original Girls on Top records (including "Warm Bitch," i.e. "She's a Bitch" over the Normals' "Warm Leatherette") were so great that imitators can't stop trying to remake them, with increasingly diminishing returns.

When I grabbed this 12" I thought it was a legit house remix of Missy's "Lose Control," but it turns out it's a mash with the M.A.N.D.Y. vs. Booka Shade electro-house hit "Body Language," from the excellent DJ mix of the same name on the German label Get Physical. (Bonus confusion: I thought M.A.N.D.Y. and Booka Shade were the same guys! So schizo.) The full vocal version is too over the top, but the dub adds a perfect dose of Miss E. to an already sick track.
