Dennis Ferrer turns the clock back to the 90s on a soulful remix of Nick Curly’s “Underground.” The veteran house producer bolsters the low-key tune with a classic house backbeat and a meandering synth bass line, perfectly complementing its catchy vocals through builds and breakdowns. His climactic organ line has a refreshingly human feel to it, a throwback to the analog era that Ferrer came up during. While this remix has been moving dance floors from Ibiza to New York this summer, you can finally own the release today on Defected Records.
Nick Curly’s “Underground” – the lead single from the producer’s debut album Between the Lines – has gotten a decidedly clubby remix by Dennis Ferrer. The originally techy track is transformed with a choppy vocal start, a playful lead-line and a finale that makes you want to restart the track just to hear it all again. What’s even better is that the remix sounds perfect as part of a larger set, as showcased in the latest Defected in the House Radio Show broadcast. While Dennis Ferrer isn’t known for his remixes, this – his first of the year – truly delivers a strong sound that’s perfectly reminiscent of original house music. Both the original mix and Ferrer’s version will be available on November 12th, but you can enjoy them right now, beyond the break. (more…)
