A little over 12 months ago we released Metodi Hristov’s “Step Outside”. The reactions were immediate and awesome. Support came in from the likes of Seth Troxler, Audiojack, Detroit Swindle, Ramon Tapia, DJ T, Stefano Ritteri and Sidney Charles.
Since then the Bulgarian producer has had an incredible time. He’s delivered some heavy-hitters for A-list labels like Deeperfect, Gruuv, Toolroom, OFF Recordings and Joris Voorn’s Green label and it seems like hardly a week goes by without a tune of Metodi’s popping up in the Beatport charts.
And with Metodi’s new found popularity, people keep discovering this tune (only last week Sankey’s Ibiza tweeted about the damage it had done this season and I got an email from an A-list DJ who missed it first time round) so we’re re-releasing for the 2015 season and – as well as a new mix from Metodi – we have enlisted two of our favourite producers right now in Olivier Giacomotto and Kevin Over to deliver new versions.
My favourite thing about these remixes is that they all stick closely to the original: Metodi keeps its dark feel but turbo-charges the baseline to create a real heads-down stomper of a mix, Giacomotto – who is on a hell of a roll himself – creates a full-on jacking treatment for Metodi’s odd-ball vocals and piano stabs and Kevin Over opts for a heavy-as-fuck 5am roller.
Hopefully you’ll find these new treatments useful additions to the original, which is included for all those that missed it first time round.
