NICK HOOK & MARTIN SHARP present FIRST LIFE – ‘Be One Of Us’ – Never Say Die Mixes
Brand new mixes of the progressive house classic from: JASON CHANCE, JAY KAY, COOL GOLD and NICK HOOK & MARTIN SHARP.
JEEPERS! proudly presents brand new mixes of the classic mid-90s progressive house track ‘Be One Of Us’ by First Life.
Nick Hook and Martin Sharp produced together as First Life in the 90s and 2000s, creating a number of progressive house classics such as ‘Be One Of Us’, ‘Love Bomb’ and the two remixes of Dum Dum’s ‘One Earth Beat’ included on John Digweed’s Renaissance 2 album.
‘Be One Of Us’ was massive for both Sasha and Digweed when it was first released in 1994, and was a seminal tune when they toured the USA to spread the British progressive house sound.
Inspired by a recent Sasha gig in Brighton the boys decided to produce an updated version of ‘Be One Of Us’ for a new generation of clubbers, and the result is a sensational new mix with a tribal tech house groove and an epic breakdown.
Putting together a new remix package for the release posed no problem, with some of their top producer friends chomping at the bit to get their hands on the new remix parts.
Jason Chance delivers an outstanding full-on tech house stomper that’s sure to send dance floors into a frenzy. Northern Ireland’s Jay Kay weighs in with a really cool deeper house mix. While US-based Cool Gold hits you with a stunning melodic techno mix with dark undertones (Cool Gold is American DJ legend Chris Fortier – who was a big fan of the original tune – and Stephen Wilson aka Rudiment).
