Late night shows at Pacha Ibiza week on week seem to be influencing the work of David Guetta at the minute. Bringing back his roots over recent times in huge back to backs (B2B’s) with the likes of Solardo and Pete Tong, the Frenchman has dived into the archives and plucked out some tech house samples, using them to full effect. Guetta has dropped his own club remix of his recent release ‘Don’t Leave Me Alone‘, hitting the track with deep and dark sounds throughout. The 50 year-old has turned this commercial chart track into a club weapon, and it’s available to stream right now.
The track kicks off with a bass line that surely is inspired from the sounds of Solardo. Packed with groove, prominent percussion, and short stabs that add atmosphere, the track has a rolling sound from the off, and only a minute in do any vocals surface. The vocals are not those of collaborator Anne-Marie, however, with a deep male voice dropping amid a cowbell and the bass line melody being played lightly. As this melody raises in intensity and volume, the deep voice drops out and vocal chops from the original come in, to provide the build up to the track’s club drop. Hitting with plenty of force, Guetta’s tech-house spin on the original is a vast improvement to the electronic music listeners ear, as opposed to the original, pop sound. This club remix is peak Guetta, who has continued to show recently why he is still such a dominant force in the electronic music scene.
The legendary producer has provided the goods on this one, and the track is certainly something you’d hear in the Club Room at Hï Ibiza, where the likes of Solardo and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano have notable residencies. It is very much worth mentioning that the latter of the two aforementioned – SJRM – might be supporting Tom Staar‘s take on the very same track. The UK producer who is based in Ibiza has dropped a main stage banger that supports a similar groove to Guetta’s remix, but with more of a festival edge. Take a listen to both remixes below, as well as R3hab’s and Sidney Samson’s, and decide on your favourite.
