Now nearing the end of his two month global Summer Tour, a tour that has included shows at Tomorrowland, Ultra Europe and Ushuaia, the Dutch superstar DJ Fedde Le Grand is rounding things off in style by releasing his long awaited remix of Faithless’ magnum opus – ‘Insomnia’. Out on Sony Music and available to stream and download now! An undertaking of epic proportions and a risk for even the most accomplished producer, Fedde rises to the challenge and successfully executes a remix that reminds us why he’s been allowed to do this for the likes of Coldplay, Madonna, Mariah Carey and king of all things pop Michael Jackson.
Building gradually with an array of Fedde’s signature sounds the track eventually drops away to reveal Rollo’s now instantly recognisable vocals. With just a kick, fidgety bass and vocals the tracks builds once more before the chord sequence that came to define a generation of dance music explodes out the mix. With a nod to the original, Fedde maintains the same synth while also managing to give a new and different spin to the track. Now with only three shows left at Pacha (Munich), Street Parade (Zurich) and Creamfields (UK), it’s only a matter of time before Fedde gets back into the studio to finish his highly anticipated forthcoming album. If this remix is anything to go by then we should be expecting big things..
