‘Madness’ is the result of this mouth-watering collaboration, and is here in the original version and with a number of remixes.
The original sees the Norwegian DJ & producer Mikkas (Djuma Soundsystem), Czech national Michal Schwa and Aussie Nick West (Shades of Gray) team up for the first time. The result is a deep, lush and euphoric piece of house music that will surely be doing the business to dance floors all summer long. Crisp drums, a buzzing low-end bass and the beautiful interplay of keys and vocals make this a very seductive proposition.
The Danish producer Noir offers a remix that adds a little more techy grit to proceedings, keeping the affecting vocals in place and producing something of a sleek dance-floor weapon.
Roberto Rodriguez also does the business – the shuffling groove, bubbling synths and tonnes of funk add extra dimensions to his remix.
Djuma Soundsystem himself also offers up another version that reworks the arrangement, and teases out the underlying grandness of the original – this could the version to welcome many sunrises this year.
Beatport customers will also receive a killer Alex Dimou remix, which sees the Get Physical artist bring his signature style to ‘Madness’, creating an hypnotic, twisting house burner.
Traxsource customers will also receive the Hallo Halo remix.
