Tune Of The Day: Spandau Ballet vs. Basto! – Gold 2012

Basto is Belgium’s freshest EDM export and is well known for his melodic brand of feel good progressive house music. His latest remix is set to become an absolute dance floor destroyer reworking classic 80’s pop royalty Spandau Ballet and their global hit Gold.

Teaming Tony Hadley’s unmistakably powerful vocals with a banging main room electronic vibe, Basto has turned the 1983 track into a contemporary dance track that is equally at home on the dancefloors as it will be on the terraces of the country’s Olympic stadia. Instantly recognizable as the Spandau Ballet hit, established fans and clubbers alike will be singing along to the catchy chorus. Spandau Ballet are no strangers to dance music. They were there at the start of the DJ culture in the late 1970s and early 80s in the clubs of Soho and throughout Europe and the world. The band were one of the first white bands to release a 12“ remix of their singles, in particular To Cut Along Story Short, an era-defining slice of electronic myth-making which took them to a huge audience, out of the clubs and into the charts. Followed closely by Chant No.1 (We Don’t Need This Pressure On), a mix of contemporary funk and modern vibes, Spandau Ballet were the coolest band in town.

Basto’s re-take of Gold manages to mix a more aggressive electronic sound with the ingredients of an energy anthem, all over an indestructible bass. It’s a strong step up from his previous big room hits like the tantalizing Gregory’s Theme, the addictive Again & Again, atmospheric Cloudbreaker (with Yves V) and gives a massive nod to his current Beatport chart topping monster, I Rave You.

As Basto himself says: When I first decided to remix “Gold” by Spandau Ballet, I. hesitated for a moment.  Usually, I’m very sceptical when it comes to reworking classics. Why would you wanna take the risk to ruin an epic record? But we managed to make it a very relevant dance track, without losing the gist of the original. It’s not a remix of an old track anymore, it’s a cool record with an epic vocal”   

Basto is constantly heading club charts with his remixes including Kylie MinogueThe Wanted, Ed Sheeran and Flo-Rida to the recent smash hit  212 from Azelia Banks featuring Lazy Jay, Conor Maynard, Stooshe ft. Travie McCoy, Lil John ft. LMFAOLabrinthMoby and Sander Van Doorn.

Markus Schulz – Los Angeles ’12 (Unmixed Vol. 1)

The dust has barely settled on the release of Markus Schulz’s much acclaimed Los Angeles ’12 compilation – the latest chapter in his city series story. Highlighted by two sold out back to back nights at Avalon, fans around the world now have the opportunity to obtain some of the biggest moments in his DJ sets, thanks to the first bundle of Full Versions.

Volume 1 of the Full Versions is highlighted by the exclusive inclusion of Markus’ own “Bolandish” – a track specifically made with the compilation in mind, and very much born to shine in the twisted afterhours segments of his extended and solo livesets. Also exclusively included is Rex Mundi’s massive remix of Ercola’s “Follow Me”, one of the most popular Global DJ Broadcast listener requests in recent times.

With more exclusive material from the likes of DNS Project, Erick Strong vs. Dart Rayne and Mr. Pit, as well as Markus’ reconstruction of Beatport number 1 smash “The Fusion”, alongside huge anthems by Mark Otten, KhoMha, Danilo Ercole and Rebels Without a Cause & York, this has been a package well worth waiting for.

It’s time to inject some fresh anthems into your DJ sets, and Los Angeles ’12: The Full Versions Volume 2 is the perfect antidote.
