Dancing in the Dark remix contest

If you started spinning house about the same time as I did you must remember the 2002 classic “Dancing in the dark” by 4tune500. If not here is a reminder:

The tune had a repsectfull bass line in combination with some funky tribal drums and became one of personal favorites of our good friend Pete Tong who was dropping it on Radio 1 over and over again. The original vinyl sold 15 000 copies and could be found in the crate of every self-respecting DJ in Ibiza as well as under the bed of every wanna-be DJ north of Copenhagen including me.

Well, 6 years later, it’s time to pick it up again and blow off the dust. As all the other old-school dancefloor wonders Dancing in the Dark has been re-released in a new 2008 version along with a bunch of remixes. Personally I’m a bit tired of this tune recycling trend. You know what I’m talking about: The men with the red face, Children, Jaguar, Born Slippy.

What’s going on here is a bit more than a regular remake. It’s a remix competetion.
If you buy the 2008 club mix package for Euro 3,86 at DjDownload you will also recieve a production package with all the separate channels of the track. Just lock yourself into the studio and make sure to come up with a remix better than the ones bellow. The competition closes on 22nd of December and the winners get their remixes release + 30 free downloads on DjDownload. How about that? C’mon! What you waiting for? Go Sweden!

Bellow you can find the new remixes of the tune. I personally still digg the original, but Kamishake remix is definetely worth buying.
