As of lately, Nicole Wray, better know as Lady, have been generating quite a bit of buzz for her brand of unfiltered, honest, and uplifting soul music. The song, Get Ready, taken from her self-titled LP, is one of the best examples of her truly unique sound. It's driving rhythm, which falls somewhere in-between William DeVaughn's "Be Thankful For What You've Got" and that N.W.A song that samples William Devaughn "Be Thankful For What You've Got", is the perfect backdrop for Lady's raw vocal stylings and positive message. The EP also includes a masterful remix by NYC reggae super-dude, Victor Axelrod, a.k.a Ticklah. All that remains of the original are the vocals, the rest is replayed and reprogrammed. The result is a song that sounds like a classic reggae tune that could of been cut on the same day and in the same studio as Johnny Osbourne's "We Need Love". This is not a remix in today's sense of the word, this is a version.
