EDM music rising stars Robbie Rivera links up with Allen Wish on a new brand remix ‘Girlfriend‘ via Ultra Records
The new track ‘Girlfriend’ from Robbie Rivera and Aleen Wish, marks the first release of the year from Rivera and Wish who provide the perfect dose of nostalgia leading into the new year.
Allen Wish shares about the remix, “I’ve been a fan of Robbie’s career for a long time. We’ve been in touch, sending music and back and forth, and one day I thought I’ll like to rework one of his biggest tracks. I initially proposed to Robbie we reimagine Back To Zero, but after having a chat with him, we ended up reimagining Girlfriend instead. The vocal already had that feeling of nostalgia deep down and I loved that, we just followed that feeling and added more depthness to it.”
The new remix for ‘Girlfriend’ has continued to be re-produced over the past two decades, with a ‘Girlfriend 2008’ spin and now a 2021 remake with Columbian-born producer Allen Wish. This new wave version features an uptempo house edit while still paying homage to the original, keeping the vocals intact from beloved trance vocalist Justine Suissa.
Robbie Rivera says about the new remix, “I am very excited to bring back this beautiful song I produced when my hair was not white! Justin Suissa’s sweet vocals always bring a smile to fans when I play the original. This new remix with Allen Wish is just so good! New arrangement and synth sounds take the tune to the next level and I can’t wait to get new fans with this remix.”
