Embassy One and Twelve x Twelve have unveiled the next string of artists to remix Betoko’s seminal number – including remixes from Sharam Jey & Bakka, Betoko and Eli & Fur.
Born and bred in Mexico and now based in London as a modern-day techno stalwart, Betoko’s powerful rhythms that join the dots between techno, minimal and house music have enchanted the scene for over a decade. Betoko’s natural and steady progression as a devoted disciple of the sound has now seen him head two labels, OKO Recordings and Chilli Mint Music, both of which release music that is championed by DJs across the globe.
Part of Betoko’s inspiring back catalog is his 2012 seminal hit ‘Raining Again,’ which he released on Solomun’s Diynamic imprint and has received an iconic status in dance music. With over 100 million hits worldwide, Betoko’s original was labeled ‘Track Of The Summer’ in 2012.

Nearly 10 years since the release, Embassy One, a record label that has etched its name for delivering house and techno anthems has taken up the task of reimagining the anthem again. Having released a belting rework from dance music giant Roger Sanchez, Embassy One has now dropped the next string of remixes including Betoko himself.
A staunch contributor to the scene since the early 90s, Cologne-based artist Sharam Jey and long-term collaborator Bakka (BR) link up for the latest installment in the collection. Tethered to the roots of its counterpart through the famed vocal line, Sharam Jey & Bakka (BR)´s offering takes a stylistic turn, with 80s electronica sensibilities and contemporary breaks providing listeners with a stimulating blend of old and new.
Next up is the creator of the original himself for a reimagination of his record, with a flurry of cosmic synth elements that fully embody the project’s narrative of renewal. His revitalized cut brings the project full circle, highlighting his consistent drive for progression within a fast-paced music scene. Last, but by no means least, and rounding out the project in emphatic fashion, Embassy One welcomes the indisputable talents of world-renowned duo Eli & Fur.
Betoko – Raining Again (Sharam Jey & Bakka Remix) is available to stream now via all major streaming platforms; however, the Eli&Fur Remix remix will be released on all streaming platforms via Embassy One on June 30.
