Swedish House Mafia & Laidback Luke feat. Deborah Cox – Leave The Wold Behind (Bender Remix)


It’s been a little over a year since the dance music powerhouse, Swedish House Mafia said their final farewells and disbanded, leaving a legacy of classic tracks behind that have become a part of dance music history. Back in 2009, before electronic dance music completely exploded into the mainstream, Swedish House Mafia teamed up with superstar Dutch producer Laidback Luke to create the now iconic progressive house track, ‘Leave The World Behind’.  Five years later, the legendary song gets a premier makeover from up and coming young gun, Bender.  Giving ‘Leave The World Behind’ a deep/ future house treatment, Bender completely reworks the track into what could be a somber ode to the dearly departed Swedish House Mafia. The upbeat synth melody and quick house beats of the original are replaced with deep rhythmic drums and a groovy bass line. Having rebuilt the whole track in the key of A minor, even Deborah Cox’s vocals are brought down to a deeper level, eloquently translated from the original to fit the sultry fluency of the remix. Bender’s  recreation of such an iconic track keeps the dignity of the original intact while offering a fresh and sexy perspective that will surely have house heads buzzing. Bender’s musical talent, creativity and production skills are apparent in his remixes and should be noted. You heard it hear first, keep your eye on this rising talent sure to bring you intriguing and inspiring sounds from the deeper side of things.
