Track of the Day

Federico Scavo keeps David Jones' "Rhythm Alive" with a new remix

By Eric Coomes

Italian producer David Jones, last year’s Beatport Remixer of the Year, has mastered the art of the house remix. His latest original track, “Rhythm Alive,” has a bit of a ’90s throwback vibe with plenty of energy and a unique children’s chorus that sings “we are dancing through the night.”

For today’s Track of the Day, though, Federico Scavo, a master of house remixes in his own right, transforms that original into a cool, tech-house groove. Scavo’s darker take on the track replaces the ’90s synth line with a more underground kick that evokes feelings of a late-night dance party—if you close your eyes you can almost see club lights flashing. The remix is a refreshing take on progressive house, and the unique beat proves that rhythm is still alive.
