Benny Benassi Vs Marshall Jefferson “Move your Body”

You’re in for a treat from the Italian producer that brought you “Satisfaction” and “Cinema”. Benny has tastefully created uplifting house music for decades, and now he is back with remix of a house classic.

Marshall Jefferson’s 1986 hit, ” Move your Body” is an iconic house music track that brought life to the underground parties, at the beginning of a rave revolution. Since the beginning, future generations of DJ’s and Producers have been inspired by tracks like this. Now that dance music is stronger than ever, and with new artists bursting in the scene almost faster than the speed of sound, we can’t help but wonder how the classics would sound  if they were written almost 26 years later.

The piano section at the beginning has been replaced with a collective of strings and brass synths, the track eases in smoothly. A longer and digital reverb has been added to compliment the polished re-work of the backing track. Some of the original elements of track were incorporated in to the remix such as the main hook, 808 sounding drums and the piano. More bass has been added to emphasise the bass drum, whilst sounding plucky. Benny Benassi has always brought fresh ideas to the table. Having been in the music industry since the late eighties, Benny doesn’t only move the times, he is one step ahead.

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals. Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article

Kirsty – Hands High (Afrojack Radio Edit)

February 23, 2013

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
