Charlotte de Witte, techno, and trance? You heard that right. She is giving us a two-part remix of Jerome Isma-Ae’s ‘Hold That Sucker Down‘. The techno starlet bridges the gap between techno and trance just like that.
The track is a stellar rendition of Jerome’s spin on the O.T. Quartet’s 1994 original. She turned the old school trance rave vibes into a nostalgic, dance floor thriller. Our Belgian tastemaker is doing what she does best. She’s crafting records for dance floor domination.
Listen to the first one and it takes you for a techno spin. The second one hits you on that emotional trance level. Just listen to that symphony of strings and synths arpeggiate.
Charlotte outdoes herself with this genre-crossing masterpiece. From the progressive trance original to a bass pounding remix, techno and trance enthusiasts can rejoice. Overall, this is a classic turned contemporary crowd favorite, just ask Armin himself. Furthermore, during his ASOT 950 warm-up set, he played this!
“Remixing a classic is something that always feels extremely honorable and rewarding to me. While remixing…I decided to aim for two different remixes. One would respect the massive trance lead and vibe of the original, while the other would be faster and more stripped-down, bringing forward the techno that I love so much.” – Charlotte de Witte
