Yotto & Raphael Mader rework Power Circle ‘Garden Of Peace’ for Renaissance The Remix Collection !

And the track has other contemporary fans too; a certain Maceo Plex was heard dropping it in 2020. Even today, he has been known to slide it into the mix, most recently Episode 10 of his legendary Bunker streams. ”Garden Of Peace is a record I missed first time around as a kid and had only heard on a mix, never knowing what it was, so when Renaissance approached me about a remix there was a strange sense of familiarity,” he explains, “The original is full of classic progressive house mystery and, while I took the whole thing apart, I wanted to keep that emotion with my interpretation.”  Lastly, fast-rising star Raphael Mader provides a radically different take, offering a deeper mix for the earlier hours or, perhaps, a sunrise or sunset moment. Originally released in 1993, ‘Garden Of Peace’ was an immediate Renaissance anthem, finding favour with all their key DJs. However, it became synonymous with one man in particular, namely, John Digweed, who cemented the track’s legendary status when he included it on his ‘Journeys by DJ’ compilation the following year. Yotto’s modern interpretation is a high-octane juxtaposition of thunderous bass, rising pads and THAT vocal. You can stream or download this EP here: https://lnk.to/REN300001D

Follow us on socials Now, its evolution takes yet another step as it joins the ranks of Renaissance’ flagship ReMix Collection series. After a hiatus of 15 months, Renaissance’s The ReMix Collection makes a highly anticipated return as Yotto steps up to take on the Shakra Mix of Power Circle’s ‘Garden Of Peace’, backed by a Raphael Mader remix, released on 16 April. In short, it’s one of those records that has stood the test of time and grown in stature year on year.

EELKE KLEIJN EASES THE TEMPO WITH SAMAHA’S SLOW EDIT SCORING A ‘MIDNIGHT AFFAIR’!

For those with finely tuned ears, the fusion of Blige’s ‘Family Affair’ and Eelke’s production is seamless, and the final mash-up undoubtedly breathes life into both masters. This is when he’s not producing acclaimed albums, or remixing the likes of John Legend, Pendulum and  Jennifer Lawrence. Two years on, Kleijn’s ‘Oscillations’ LP blended progressive, ambient, breakbeat, and other shades of electronica for both dancefloors and headphones. 2021 saw Kleijn play an exclusive live set atop the Mont-Saint-Michelin in France, a concert broadcasted by Cercle, and on top of all this, he runs the DAYS Like NIGHTS label, extending to a radio show, podcast and world-renowned audiovisual events. Thanks to the Seattle-based producer’s handiwork, the single’s desert groove now boasts an instantly recognisable Mary J Blige classic. He said he had an interesting proposal about ‘De Orde Van De Nacht’, which he used at a slower tempo in his live DJ sets, and that he’d come up with an edit involving a Mary J Blige song  – a secret weapon for shows kind of thing – that people had been loving and asking about. Immediately I fell in love with the edit – once all the necessary clearing and studio tweaking was done by me and my team, it felt good being able to put it out”. Rotterdam’s Eelke Kleijn introduces a fresh twist on his 2017 DAYS like NIGHTS release ‘De Order Van De Nacht’, courtesy of Anthony Samaha. His third album ‘Moments Of Clarity’ featured the soaring track ‘1,000 Lights’, originally composed as part of a 670 drone art piece at Burning Man 2018 in memory of festival founder Larry Harvey. Follow us on socials Eelke Kleijn is putting his skills as a multi-instrumentalist and composer to good use with regular compositions for TV and film, his work scoring Hollywood blockbusters such as ‘Batman vs Superman’, ‘Rush’ and ‘This Means War’. Eelke explains how the marriage between these two tracks came about: “In January 2020 Anthony Samaha reached out, saying he was a big fan.

STEFF DA CAMPO X CHICO ROSE REVAMP ‘5 ON IT’ IN A WARM 71 DIGITS REMIX !

Originally released in 1996 by US duo Luniz, the record included various samples and featured vocals of singer Michael Marshall. Well, that’s one way to look at it. More appropriate, these DJs have revamped a timeless melody, using it for a sweet piece of dance music. “Working with Chico Rose was great. ‘5 On It’ is not a straightup remix, where the original vocals take the lead; this is electronic music with the emphasis on beats and melody. And yes, it’s bound to get you moving again. But they’ve done it. So, when three DJ/producers with an already impressive remix resume in their hands start working with this tune, expectations are high. Thanks to the outstanding remix work of mystery act 71 Digits, the song is taken to deep, moody grounds, resulting in a beautiful tune. We shared our love for this classic tune and are very happy how it turned out!” – Steff Da Campo

“I’m really excited to rework this amazing song together with Steff Da Campo. In short, a classic reborn? Already a classic in its own right, ‘5 On It’ by Luniz has now received an exciting new version by Dutch DJ/producers Steff Da Campo and Chico Rose. Chico Rose has made similar moves, teaming up with his buddy Afrojack or delivering popular tracks with acts like B-Case, Jaden Bojsen, and… 71 Digits, the anonymous act with whom he made last year’s massive hit tune ‘Somebody’s Watching Me’. ‘5 On It’ is out now on Spinnin’ Records. It’s a nice team up taking place here. They have taken the original, instantly recognizable melody of the 90’s hip hop record to build a tasteful piece of deep house music. Safe to say, this was a huge hit, a 90’s classic that’s never left the public eye, still played to this day. And now, the guys worked their magic on a powerful 90’s hip hop tune: ‘5 On It’. I hope to see you soon!” – Chico Rose

Follow us on socials Using the original’s melody, the record receives some nice underlaying deep house beats and an infectious bassline, followed by warm synth pads nicely intertwining with the lead chords. From the swaying groove to the moody breakdown, this is instrumental deep house how you want it served: tasteful, delicate and rhythmic. Steff Da Campo has been making quite some waves these last years, delivering deep groovy house tunes with exciting hooks and often recognizable (vocal) samples and melodies. The record charted in the Top 10 in countries like the US, UK, Germany and Holland, reaching the platinum status in the US. Be ready for the amazing 71 Digits remix.

Bassjackers and ANG just dropped a main stage banger !

Meanwhile, Bassjackers have over 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify and YouTube videos reaching up to 120 million views. At the top of their game, Bassjackers continue to tear up stages worldwide and wow crowds along the way. Combining Big Room with a slight Slap Bass sound. It is the first time Bassjackers and ANG released a track together. DJ, Marlon Flohr, and producer, Ralph van Hilst, who together form Bassjackers, are perfectly in sync as a duo. This was a sign of things to come. Since then, Bassjackers have reached massive new heights in their career such as a currrent #29 position in the DJ Mag Top 100, numerous chart-topping bangers and hit collaborations with the likes of Martin Garrix, Afrojack, KSHMR, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Dyro, R3hab, Snoop Dogg and Showtek, to name a few, as well as remixes for A-list artists including Rihanna, Enrique Iglesias, Moby, and Ne-Yo. Their opposing personalities – Marlon being the wild one rocking each and every stage they play and Ralph the more cool and collective preferring to shine behind the scene on the producer seat, are a perfect combination for this unique one dj-one producer collaboration. The duo exploded onto the scene and in 2011 their dancefloor bomb “Mush Mush” was picked up by Tiësto and released on his label Musical Freedom. The track dominated the Beatport top 10 chart for over two months and was one of the biggest festival tracks of the year. This is a real festival banger that we will hopefully hear soon on the big stage. Follow us on socials
