A record which evokes immediate flashbacks of a defining era for dance music, BT’s classic ‘Flaming June’, despite nearing it’s 20th birthday is still a true favourite amongst the scene, and is widely considered to be one of Grammy-nominated producer BT’s finest works. Bringing ‘Flaming June’ bang up-to-date is Progressive stalwart, Ashley Wallbridge, who injects BT’s seminal Original with a bass-heavy helping of Ashley’s trademark energy & drive.
With ‘Flaming June’s’ strong, reminiscent lead melody, Ashley Wallbridge’s ability to pull off a Remix brimming with nostalgia whilst retaining the Original’s groundbreaking emotion & progression is remarkably well executed in a full on Progressive House rendition. Proving to be a lead that matches perfectly with contemporary, big-room techniques, Ashley’s Remix combines a very modern crunching, cavernous bassline with the Original’s delicate, rippling melody to result in a Remix perfectly balanced between peak-time energy and classic euphoria.
Ashley Wallbridge’s modern effort delivers a timely trip down memory lane.
