Michel De Hey warmed our winter blues with this sizzling slice of summer house back in December of last year. Inspired by his summer beach residency in Karavaan, ‘You Feel Alive’ was a roof-raising, arm-waving anthem in the making and went on to soundtrack many of the parties at WMC and beyond.
Today Rejected extend its reach deep into Summer ‘16 with a new brace of remixes, each giving a fresh take on the original. First up is Joris Voorn who initially stays true to the original. Relaxing the beat and bass pattern, the label boss allows the unmistakable synth melody to play us through to its mercury-rising break, before shaking things up with an additional final flourish of keys and strings.
Jesse Rose goes polar on the flip, as he reworks You Feel Alive into a heads-down warehouse slugger. His locked-tight bass groove is pierced by flashes of the original synth, rasping claps and flyby’s.
Whether it be baking on the terraces or stomping in the big tops, both mixes of You Feel Alive are set to be rocking your summer sound systems.
