Senor Coconut Beat It
- Words: Tim Pratt
- Label: MultiColor
Senor Coconut (Uwe Schmidt), rarely fails to disappoint with his over-the-top Latin covers of pop hits. "Beat It" features two sprightly remixes of Coconut's cover of the Michael Jackson hit. Puerto Rico's Ruben Rodriguez's mix accentuates the tougher, more electro side of the track with taut beat programming and a bumping bassline, though it really doesn't evolve into a memorable motif. On the flip, DJ Enne's Latino Bass & Breaks Mix filters "Beat It" through a lively, beat-friendly parade with a touch of modern electro-funk. Fun but not essential.
