Swiss artist Yves Larock and house star Steff Da Campo team up for a New Dance Remix of ’Rise Up 2021’ Featuring Jaba
The new single “Rise Up 2021” features melodies and warm vocals of the original are omnipresent, this time intertwined with finely tuned 2021 production, building up with gentle chords and subtle beats before diving into a warm deep house groove. The breakdown brings instant bliss, as it mixes the reggae styled vocals with a sweet reggae beat – bringing the song straight to its melting point. When the beat subsequently drops again, it’s a full release of dopamine – happiness guaranteed.
Yves Larock dominated the summer of 2007 with the release of ‘Rise Up’, a border crossing club tune featuring a soulful groove and hot blooded vocals by reggae singer and fellow Swiss artist Jaba. Reaching high in the international charts back then (including #13 on the official UK Singles Chart), ‘Rise Up’ has remained a much praised and spun record till this day – every new generation of DJs seems to embrace the track in its own way.
He knows his way around tunes like these, as he’s been making quite some waves these last years with deep groovy house records featuring exciting hooks, alluring melodies, and often recognizable vocal samples. Just check out his much acclaimed rework of 90’s hip hop gem ‘I Got 5 On It’, released earlier this year together with 71 Digits, and you’ll catch his vibe instantly.
Steff Da Campo has captured the essence of ‘Rise Up’ with this rework, highlighting the feelgood elements of the original to create something special once again. 2021 might still be a strange year for dance music lovers, this record definitely takes off the sharp edges and makes sure the energy keeps flowing.
Larock says: “I am very happy with this new version of Rise Up! Steff Da Campo and I kept the essence of my original track, while also breathing new life with a new 2021 sound.
At first this wasn’t so easy — it took a lot of different tries for both Steff and I tobe satisfied with the results… but I think we have something really special here. The new Rise Up 2021 versions are fit for the club and radio, so we’re more than happy with the results!”
