Adam Beyer & Layton Giordani Remix Sam Paganini’s “Rave”June 24, 2022
Released in 2014, Italian artist Sam Paganini‘s track “Rave” — taken off his sophomore album Satellite — is one of Drumcode‘s most successful releases, hitting upwards of 100 million streams with immense dance floor support from techno heavyweights worldwide.
Eight years later, Drumcode boss Adam Beyer has teamed up with label staple Layton Giordani to remix this massive tune. Kitted out with careening drums and elastic synth arrangements, this ready-for-battle remix sees the duo crank up the original tune’s BPM and bring a high-octane boost to the track’s iconic riff. Listen below.
“When I signed Sam Paganini’s ‘Satellite’ album back in early 2014, I quickly realised that the track’ Rave’ was going to be a defining record for Drumcode,” says Adam Beyer. “Remixing a track of this magnitude was always going to be a delicate operation. Layton and I agreed that we wanted to keep as much of the original magic and signature ingredients as possible while administering a solid injection of 2022 energy and punch. It’s a respectful refresh of this timeless record, and it’s been a huge peak time moment in all of my post-pandemic shows.”
Layton Giordani adds: “This will be the remix I’ll be most proud of, probably for the rest of my life. It connects my younger self to where it all began and to the artist I’ve become today. It’s really an exciting new chapter in my relationship with Drumcode.”
