One of the greatest things about EDM as opposed to other genres, IMHO, is that because technology continues to advance, it is possible to do endless revivals of an older dance hit. Just throw some current sounds and effects on it, and you instantly have nostalgia mixed with cutting-edge sounds. While I am not knocking acoustic instruments at all – no musician is better than a musician that learned on acoustic instruments – a violin will always sound like a violin, but a synth will not always sound like a synth.
This brings us to the now classic Move Move by Puerto Rican DJ/producer Robbie Rivera. Originally released in 2007, this track rode the wave of sax-driven sounds that were revived after Calabria 2007 became a massive international hit, peaking at number 18 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US. So…a revival influenced a track that is now having its own revival. Interesting, huh? All because of the sax riff heard ’round the world.
Now its 2010, and Move Move 2010 has been released as a maxi-single on Juicy Music, with an additional release of the Antoine Clamaran remix on Tiesto’s Black Hole Recordings. I have posted the Oliver Twizt and Antoine Clamaran remixes because they are my personal favorites. Oliver Twizt puts his own Dirty Dutch spin on the track, while Antoine turns the track into an all-out tribalfest. Mark my words, these mixes are going to be played everywhere. Nothing like a good sax line and a good revival to get the party started.
