Alola celebrates 20 years of music adding new remixes of 16B's classic "The Game".....
Originally released in 2002 on the seminal Hooj Choons imprint, Omid's 16B's 'The Game' went on to be one of his most loved and best-selling releases.
Hypnotic, tribal house with progressive overtones, 'The Game' was a huge hit for the likes for Danny Tenaglia, John Digweed and DJ Vibe, and in many ways epitomized the sound dominating the dance floors in the early naughties; brooding melodies and pensive beats coupled with deep male tones that narrate a late night mantra, 'The Game' builds into hedonistic territory with a calculated approach.
Omid 16B and Beatport have teamed up to offer a new generation of producers the opportunity to remix this house classic. Inundated by a slew of forward-thinking, well-crafted remixes, Omid and his team whittled it down to 3 , with Texas (US) based producer, Beat Tribe, being picked as the winner and SLP and Javan coming in close second and third respectively .
Beat Tribe turns in a rolling, tech house, tribal infused remix on 'The Game', aimed at the dancefloor, laced with infectious groove.
Hungarian Innovator SLP (sexonwax artist) delivers a pensive prog work-out, slowly evolving, building to those iconic chord melodies whilst newcomer Javan's minimal-tinged work-out is suited to the darker floors.
Completing the package are Marcelo Castelli's 2001 remixes, which just as with the original, still sound great today.
