New-York producer and DJ Roger Sanchez take his approach on Betoko’s classic deep house anthem ‘Raining Again’, which is out now on Embassy One.
Making his long-awaited Embassy One label debut, the Grammy Award-winning Dominican-American power player offers a contemporary rework of the iconic cut that’s teeming with Roger Sanchez sensibilities. Upping the tempo, he employs an abundance of crisp percussive elements to create that momentous drive we’ve come to know and love from his vast catalogue of productions.
Established in 2010, Berlin-based record label Embassy One has long served as a leading imprint for electronic music and its evolution. Led by its devotion to authenticity and progression – consistently pushing the envelop with a consistent stream of forward-thinking output – the label recently announced a collaboration with Music NFT marketplace twelve x twelve, to launch a series of remixes, inviting some of the biggest artists in the industry to re-imagine some of electronic music’s most iconic records. Exclusive and limited NFT (Digital Vinyl) is available now.
Moving away from the original’s vintage affection, we’re introduced to a darker identity that’s founded on hard-hitting synths, rises and groove-inducing drops. Made with only the dancefloor in mind, the remix is a brooding slice of tech house bliss that provides a paradoxical listening experience to Betoko’s counterpart.
