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.
