Dutch DJ/production duo Stavros Martina and Kevin D have linked up for another DJcity exclusive remix. This time, The Champs’ 1958 classic “Tequila” —  a top-20 hit that year that has remained popular ever since — gets an exciting moombahton refresh.

The original’s Latin jazz flavor is preserved, and the tempo is dropped into a groove that matches the cool vibe of the famous saxophone solo. The dembow riddim under the chopped, bright horns and the groove in the melody is the spotlight here.

Regarding the remix, Stavros Martina says “Kevin D and I were chilling in the home studio, and I saw a full bottle of tequila. I said to Kevin D, ‘TEQUILA!’ He said what!? So I repeated: ‘TEQUILA!’ Then I sang the song. He thought it was an awesome idea for a remix. One day later, the remix was finished. One week later, we still had the remix in our heads and kept playing it over and over!”
