15 Tracks That Will Rule Ibiza 2014
“Maceo Plex provides GusGus with a moody, sultry rework of ‘Crossfade’ with a big vocal that gives the track major crossover appeal. We’ve already heard this go down heavy once at the early season Solomun +1 party at Pacha Ibiza, and something tells us it won’t be the last.” Pulse Radio.
The first vital sign of the upcoming new GUSGUS full-length player has landed
CROSSFADE unites all the beloved traits of Iceland’s iconic outfit: the flamboyant vocals, the anthemic pop infusions, the driving beats. You’ll need experienced remixers to tackle this kind of larger- than-life glamour, but with MACEO PLEX, SIBOLD and MICHAEL MAYER we’ve rounded up an impressive posse of producers that know how take their cues from this vibrant piece of music.
MACEO PLEX leads the pack with a highly kinetic revamp shedding the surplus regalia in favor of a sleek, vigorous club edit that encapsulates the original’s stimuli in a few, extremely well-placed hooks. Its no wonder this mix went straight to #1 on Beatport. SIBOLD follows with an effective, slightly leftfield-ish rendition that places special emphasis on the songwriting properties of CROSSFADE. In contrast, MICHAEL MAYER leaves out the majority of the vocals to focus on a slinky disco boogie dub that is both enticing and insolent towards the towering might of the original.
Support from Tensnake, Sasha, Kolsch, Gui Boratto, Seth Troxler, Wankelmut, Blond:ish, HNQO, Agoria, Boris Dlugosch, Ewan Pearson and more.
