Keeping The Teen Spirit Alive
René Amesz & Baggi Begovic - Smells Like Teen Spirit (Original Mix) [Spinnin']

Every once in a while I come across a new take on a classic pop/rock track, and every once in a while I get blown away. Now, it’s a bit difficult for me to swallow an alternative rock classic like Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit redone for that big room sound, but we have we have two guys who are willing to take on that challenge. Hailing from Rotterdam, Holland, René Amesz and Baggi Begovic have truly put something remarkable together with their take on Smells Like Teen Spirit, and as Roger Sanchez put it, “Amesz and Begovic have truly stepped their game up with this one!”

Amesz and Begovic did a great job of retaining the soul of Kurt Cobain’s (pictured) voice and that unforgettable guitar riff. They also managed to enhance the grunge energy by interweaving just the right percussion patterns to add a sexy groove to the bassline that will legitimately make you dance your feet off. This is a rare and tasteful EDM rendition. Enjoy!
