UK artist James Hype delivers a sizzling tech house remix while maintaining the authenticity of the original.
For me, the original record felt like a summer day vibe, with Lau.ra’s floaty vocal. So for my remix I wanted to make a night time version, bringing the pace and energy up for the dance floor, adding in some more aggressive sounds and my heavy beat for good measure. Glad to say it’s gone off in both mine and Claptones sets! -James Hype
