Singer-songwriter Janieck, known for his worldwide hit ‘Reality’ alongside Lost Frequencies and his solo hit ‘Feel The Love’, recently presented his new single ‘Does It Matter’, capturing a unique blend of (acoustic) pop and dance music. Now, the record returns in two new guises, remixed by Alle Farben and Denis First & Reznikov.
After kicking off a career as a singer-songwriter, Janieck did a collab with Lost Frequencies, scoring a worldwide hit with their song ‘Reality’ in 2015. Following this, he was signed exclusively to Spinnin‘ Records in 2016, where he successfully dropped his solo single ‘Feel The Love’, a track that by now has amassed over 37 million streams on Spotify.
Last year saw him team up with German dance act Alle Farben for ‘Little Hollywood’, a collab that led to a #1 Airplayhit in Germany; the single was also nominated for the 1Live Award ‘Beste Single’ of 2017. By now, the record has racked up more than 38 million Spotify streams and provided Janieck and Alle Farben with various festival shows.
‘Does It Matter’
Following this, Janieck released his new single ‘Does It Matter’ late 2017. Using the 90’s dance classic ‘Better Off Alone’ by Alice Deejay as a starting point, Janieck made it his own with a special, intimate song. ‘Does It Matter’ touches on the sentiment of the original, while turning into a completely new song, blending (acoustic) pop and dance music in a unique way.
And now, the remixes are upon us. First up, Alle Farben, who’s been on the forefront of German deep house since releasing his debut album ‘Synesthesia’ in 2014. Following this, the Berlin producer also released his sophomore album ‘Music Is My Best Friend’ in 2016, and scored various hit singles, including ‘Bad Ideas’ and ‘Please Tell Rosie’.
As a trusted partner in crime for Janieck, not only delivering hit single ‘Little Hollywood’ together but also Alle Farben album track ‘Madison’ in 2016, the German act was happy to provide ‘Does It Matter’ with a taste of its own, leaning more to a dance floor styled version.
“Janieck´s voice and the melody were an amazing base to create a perfect Dance Remix. To get my unique sound I invited my trumpet player Lahos to record some scratches. I reduced the off beat a little bit to make ‘Does It Matter’ more danceable”, says Alle Farben.
The second part of this remix package comes from Russian DJ/producer Denis First & Reznikov, a well known duo and renowned remixers from Moscow, providing Janieck‘s single with a twist of future house energy, adding strong rhythms and drops, while staying true to the original vibe.
