Special Request Won’t Fold Under Tensnake’s ‘Pressure’
Tensnake feat. Thabo - Pressure (Special Request Remix) [ITH]

Tensnake has found a fan and ally in Paul Woolford (pictured), who remixed the rising DJ’s track Pressure under his Special Request moniker.

As the underused pseudonym implies, you’re always in for a real treat whenever Special Request pops up in the credits. Woolford’s club-ready remix scarcely resembles Tensnake’s vocal-driven, high-stakes nu disco tune, though the titular “pressure” is no less palpable. But where the original mix relies on Thabo’s vocals to establish the tension, the Special Request remix instead makes use of a pounding, pulsating bassline meant to beat the anxiety right out of your body via group therapy on the dancefloor. It’s cheaper than a psychiatrist, at least.

Special Request’s Pressure remix comes from the All Gone Pete Tong & Tensnake compilation, available now on Beatport. The original mix first appeared on Tensnake’s debut LP Glow.
