Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike Bring A New Feel-Good Summer 'Feel Your Love', Ft Timmy Trumpet & Edward Maya

Take MATTN’s reimagining of ‘Last Christmas’, joined by Sylver and Dino Warriors, that gives a soaring female vocal the centre stage place, accelerated by jingle bells and deep, spacious rhythms and licks of big-room bass underneath, as well as Quintino’s nod to ‘It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas’, at first taking on a genteel feel similar to the original, before a jazzy, baritone vocal steps in to climbs the escalating melody that is then overtaken with brash, harder tempos that pummel into hardstyle BPM’s.

Leading on from the million-streamed ‘Run Away’ and ‘Bring That Beat’ that drew in support from colossal peers including Justin Martin, MAKJ and Firebeatz, Bassjackers return to inject some dancefloor menace on ‘Jingle Bells’.

If you’re thinking of the tale-old Christmas carol, then think again, as the Dutch duo swoop in with an animated melody that centers around the instantly-recognizable tones of the classic, before flipping the switch to incorporate rising synthlines that sounds unlike anything you’ve heard before, “Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals!” then precedes heavy, weighty rhythms and a trap-influenced breakdown making for a wholly alternative, and unique anthem, to soundtrack your festivities.

Finding inspiration and influence in everyone’s favourite carols and vintage Christmas tracks, spanning further artists including Klaas, Yves V, Angemi, Toneshifterz and more, get into the Christmas spirit unlike ever before with the ‘Home Alone (on The Night before Christmas)’ album dropping via Smash The House.
