Freejak Remixes Otto Knows’ ‘Million Voices’: DJcity Premiere

UK-based DJ and producer Freejak is back with a new version of Otto Knows‘ 2012 classic, “Million Voices.” The original track has charted in Belgium, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Sweden.

Regarding the remix, Freejak says, “I am so lucky to DJ regularly and even luckier to be able to create my own versions of epic anthems like ‘Million Voices’ to play in my sets. I’ve tried to make a version for those deeper, darker and dirty moments in a DJs set. What was an almost perfect record I’ve tried to find a balanced juxtaposition between the original soaring highs and the new deep tech bases.”

Freejak Remixes Rihanna’s ‘Only Girl (In The World)’: DJcity Premiere

UK-based DJ and producer Freejak returns with a smooth house remix of Rihanna‘s 2010 hit, “Only Girl (In The World).” The original track, which was released on the Barbadian singer’s fifth album, Loud, reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100.

Regarding the remix, Freejak says, “I have had the honor of flipping many legendary vocalists in my time as a producer, and who wouldn’t want to work with Rihanna’s vocals? With the lion’s share of the work done from her performance I only had to try to find a compatible and comfortable backing. With a huge rave music resurgences here in the UK I wanted to reach for something of that nature and some big rave stabs just seemed to do the trick.”

Freejak Remixes David Guetta and Sia’s ‘Titanium’: DJcity Exclusive

UK-based DJ and producer Freejak has delivered a heavy tech house style take on David Guetta and Sia‘s decade-old collaboration “Titanium.” The racing synth builds of the Billboard US Dance number-one hit pair well with thumping house rhythms on the track to take little from the energy of the original but still allow the remix to retain its own unique energy.

“For me Titanium has to be one of the most finely crafted songs in the dance music pantheon. It’s a song that could translate to any style from acoustic, to Rock to Club to country and it would still stand up,” Freejak says. “I can remember playing this track at festivals and clubs and feeling incredibly lucky to be a DJ at that point in time, and those moments will definitely stay with me forever. I tried to envelope many influences with tech house style bass lines, house style heavy drums and uplifting Progressive leads but allowing the incurable vocal to take pride of place where it should rightfully be.”

UK-based DJ/producer Freejak has flipped Fat Joe and Ashanti‘s 2002 collaboration What’s Luv,” exclusively for DJcity. Upon its release, the song reached number two on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and was Fat Joe’s first-ever top-ten pop single.

Freejak’s ability to concentrate on the most house-friendly elements of this track allows it to excel as a remix. Ashanti’s vocal, as well as the 8-bit style synths in the track’s melody are highlighted. The bottom end’s original rap breaks are replaced by quicker-paced, house-style, four-on-the-floor percussion.

Freejak notes: “’What’s Luv’ is such a feel-good track. And I think we all need a bit of feel-good these days. My task was just to purely open up this classic to the dance music community. As always I hope this puts a smile on someone’s face and can get a head or two bobbing.
