Dutch DJ/producer Rogerson has dropped a remix of Stromae‘s 2009 dance-pop hit “Alors On Danse.” The track is available exclusively on DJcity.

Since its release, “Alors On Danse” became a smash hit, reaching the top spot on charts across the Europe. It also has been certified 3x-platinum in Belgium and 2x-platinum in Switzerland.

“The saxophone is very recognizable, so [I knew] I could easily build things around it,” Rogerson says. “As ‘Alors on Danse’ means: ‘so we dance,’ I thought, why not make it more danceable?”

The remix follows up Rogerson’s flip of Sidney Samson‘s “Riverside,” which also features his signature sound: a mix of heavy 808s and uptempo Latin-style rhythms.
