Faithless - Insomnia (Fedde Le Grand Remix)
Now nearing the end of his two month global Summer Tour, including 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 this Friday 28th August.
The new remix is being released on a special Insomnia single bundle alongside the original track, Avicii Extended Remix and Armand’s European Vacation Remix.
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 and Mariah Carey. 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 lovers 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…
