Electronic music global star Madison Mars Join Forces With 71 Digits On a New Remix of pop classic ‘Out Of Touch’
The new remix brings us a melodic slap house edit by 71 Digits earlier this month, it’s now time for the much anticipated Madison Mars edit, a pumped up version that nicely blends future house elements into a fierce piece of club music.
Taking off massively in 2015 with his debut single ‘Theme O’ on Don Diablo’s HEXAGON imprint, he has quickly proven his status of a new star to watch for with a series of exciting, boldly produced dance tracks. This included the massively popular records ‘Milky Way’ ‘Atom’, ‘Shuffle Shuttle’ and the 80’s infused ‘New Vibe Who Dis’, all together racking up millions of Spotify streams as well as widespread DJ support.
The new remix features vocal lines of the famous 80’s hit ‘Out Of Touch’ by Hall & Oates. The end result came in two chapters; on February 6th the 71 Digits edit was released, using a sweet slap house groove, warm melodic hooks, and additional backing vocals from the original song. It’s the record to get a party started, taking the familiar sounds from the original to an uplifting, 21st-century dance vibe.
Including winks to contemporary pop music, 80’s synth pop and 90’s house music, the Madison Mars sound is always fresh and on the spot – and his newest teamup with mystery act 71 Digits (scoring a huge hit with last year’s Chico Rose collab ‘Somebody’s Watching Me’) isn’t the exception.
Madison Mars shares, “As a big fan of GTA (Grand Theft Auto) Vice City, I’ve always had a special place in my heart for ‘Out of Touch’ performed by Hall & Oates, which was constantly playing on GTA’s radio station while cruising around in Vice City. Obviously nostalgia kicked in every time I heard the original track, so it was just a matter of time before I was working on the cover with my friends from 71 Digits. The result reflects in two different versions, presenting both slap house and future house genres.”
Madison Mars brings his edit of ‘Out Of Touch’, using a similar approach when it comes to focusing on the Hall & Oates vocal lines, but this time creating a blast of energy with his trademark future house rhythms, including pumping bass chords and euphoric synth chords. With the vocals more repetitive in this version, it’s turned into a straightforward dance tune, going for a killer drop with strong, blazing beats. This is the peaktime version that will raise the party to the roof.
