Way back, Armand Van Helden was just another punk kid trying to hustle himself as a producer / DJ on the New York scene when he landed up at Strictly Rhythm with some rough and typical but promising club tracks. They came and went. Then something weird happened. Its name was Witch Doktor, an alien sound with staccato, hip-hop inspired snares, a thudding bassline and a loud-ass siren – and it was an instant hit with DJs looking for something edgy. From that point on, Armand turned punk to player. Eddie Thoneick’s 20th Anniversary remix pays respect by incorporating most of the elements that made this benchmark track what it is, driving it forward with a new bassline and beats and fresh momentum for today’s floors.
