Only a year after Johnny blazed us with his debut album, "Dangerous Liaisons," he returns with a new spin of collected remixes and unreleased bonus tracks on "Armed & Dangerously Remixed."
"Armed & Dangerously Remixed" features 14 tracks*, with the majority of them produced by "Dangerous Liaisons" original beat-banger, Tori Fixx. Johnny also recruits Detroit-based producer/artist, Aaron-Carl for production and a cameo on the hot and sultry club remix of "Topsy Turvy." Also, Phat Family Records' founder, Dutchboy stops by to hit-switches on the hard and cripsy "Not Black Enough," hemming it into a West-Coast-flaired rendition of the original.
Special guest stars include Brooklyn-based dyke rapper, God-des, who battles Johnny on the stereotypes of lesbians and gays on the amusingly witty and confrontational "Debate," as well as the funky and hook-laiden "Dangerous." Electro/Rap duo Scream Club also come to wreck shop with a seductively charming, yet boldly-brazen remix of "Me No Wan Dat." In addition, soulful songstress Tina G.(of God-des) lends her vocal-stylings not only once, but numerous times throughout "Armed." Tina G. starts the album with a gospel-fused introduction, then navigates her way with a slow and silky melodic Madonna tribute over Johnny's testimonial to date-rape drugs on "You're Mine/Dangerous Liaison." ALL FAGS TO THE DANCE-FLOOR! "WHAT???" Johnny delivers a high-energy house remix of "Not Your Average" where he commands vogue-club bitches to "work that shit" over a fuel-injected creative sampling of "Moments In Love." Johnny also spits pure fire on the highly acidic "10% Dis," directing opposing counterpart MC's to back the fuck up as he pays homage to the likes of MC Lyte and Roxanne Shante.
Although "Armed & Dangerously Remixed" carries and warrants a Parental Advisory Sticker, the first three full-length tracks are clean, FCC-friendly joints designed with the radio-DJ in mind. But don't worry, the dirty artistry that makes Johnny's craft so wickedly entertaining still remains evident, without becoming even close to being compromised... And even though he offers a few tame versions of his singles, he's just as "Dangerous" as ever!
