The Grammy Award winning producer and DJ has given his trademark take on Betoko’s ‘Raining Again’ on Embassy One Records.
Based in Berlin and established in 2010, Embassy One is a record label that has etched its name for delivering house and techno anthems. Led by its devotion to dish out music with authenticity Embassy One has been consistently pushing the envelope with a consistent stream of forward-thinking output.
The label recently announced a collaboration with Music NFT marketplace twelve x twelve to launch a series of remixes, inviting some of the biggest artists in the industry to reimagine some of electronic music’s most iconic records.
Having kicked off with an exclusive and limited NFT (Digital Vinyl) drop last month, Embassy One has now invited one of the most iconic names in house music in the form of Roger Sanchez to rework his magic on the label’s anthemic number ‘Raining Again’ by London-based and Mexico-born Betoko. With over 100 million hits worldwide, Betoko’s original was labeled ‘Track Of The Summer’ in 2012.
Having amassed over 13 million streams on Spotify alone since its release on Solomun’s Diynamic imprint in 2012, Betoko’s ‘Raining Again’ has become an iconic anthem within the dance music community. Making his long-awaited debut on Embassy One with the remix, Roger Sanchez ups the tempo, featuring a momentous drive on the tunes that offers a contemporary rework of the iconic cut.
Moving away from the original’s vintage affection, we’re introduced to a darker identity that’s founded on hard-hitting synths, rises and groove-inducing drops. Made with only the dance floor in mind, the remix is a brooding slice of tech house bliss that provides a paradoxical listening experience to Betoko’s counterpart.
