Having already teamed up with Ummet Ozcan, Aly & Fila and others, ‘Louder’ finds Paul van Dyk sharing studio time with that most Balearically minded of men, Roger Shah. Adding to ‘Louder’s already exotic equation is Australian-born/Singapore-raised/Manhattan-based singer Daphne Khoo.
Adding some trance shades & grades to ‘Louder’s release, the first two remixes come courtesy of PvD’s VANDIT Records lieutenants Maarten de Jong & Ben Nicky. Netherlander de Jong hikes the furnace levels up to ‘big ‘n’ blistering’, distilling marching drums, tech-fried FX and rave-ish riffs into his mix. A keen balance of the harmonic and the euphoric, Ben Nicky ups ‘Louder’s uplift ante no end, giving it loads of warp, squelch and pitch wheel fury for good measure.
Avalanching the atmosphere still further, Hungarians Myon & Shane 54 draw the worlds of house & trance creatively together with an M1 piano-led ride. Maximising the emotion of Daphne’s vocal, their Summer of Love Remix is less of the feel-good and more of the feel-great!
