Disco classic “I Feel Love” was produced by Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte, with lyrics by Donna Summer and first appeared on Donna Summer’s 1977 album “I Remember Yesterday”, it could be considered as “one of the most influential records ever made”. Following in the wake of such high esteem is no mean feat – however – Cr2 founder Mark Brown AKA MYNC alongside legendary 90’s house duo Rhythm Masters created an edit back in 2010 which conquered the beach bars and clubs of Ibiza throughout that season.

Since then, the edit has remained in the Cr2 vaults awaiting a refreshed version for the changing face of electronic music in 2017 and beyond… Finally, the moment came, alongside the labels “Past, Present & Future” series which has seen some of the most exciting producers reinvigorate Cr2classics, it became clear that this particular edit was worth an overhaul.

Handpicked for their notable underground style, Glaswegian duo Illyus & Barrientos fires up their signature club-ready house style and transforms the track into an even bigger, floor-filling thunderous anthem.

VALENTINE & Rob Araujo take an already perfect alternative r&b song, Lana Del Rey & The Weeknd’s “Lust For Life,” and morph it into something dreamy and electronic. The synth driven production adds a high level of danceability to the iconic collaboration and I hope to see this on an official remix package in the future!

Alaskan alt-dance-pop outfit Portugal. The Man has been around since 2002 but it wasn’t until recent years and with the release of their “Woodstock” this year that they’ve seen bigger mainstream success – especially with the break out single “Feel It Still” which is closing in on 100 million streams on Spotify.

Up and coming South Korean producer Nikö Blank (who is a core member of WiLDCOLLECTIVE) has been tapped by Portugal. The Man, to remix “Feel It Still” and he transforms it into a futuristic, bass filled, bouncy pop masterpiece that lures you in with mysteriously dark synths, gritty drums and of course the unforgettable catchy lead vocals by Portugal. The Man.

Nikö will be releasing his upcoming “The Frame EP” later this year with the lead single “Do U” due to be released on October 6th.

Bog Gigantic’s Brighter Future was a big old body of work, and its remixes have been treated with no less impact. Among the vast run of remodes, Oakland’s Krane goes in heavy here, but there’s a pretty solid balance of textured production prowess and uplifting composure that makes his an undisputed standout moment of the remix package.
