If you’ve found yourself on a dancefloor a few times this summer, chances are you’ve heard Rachel Row’s hit track Follow The Step or one of its many remixes (we’re quite partial to Justin Martin’s take). Now, Defected has released a package of remixes by FCL, Breach, and KiNK, who each bring Row’s vocals to new depths.
Belgian duo FCL begin their “Gentil Remix” with cool, minimal synths that let the vocals shine, bringing in a funky bassline halfway through that fully transforms the remix into a club track.
Next, Follow The Step gets the Breach treatment in his “Hood Remix.” Unlike the previous track, the Jack whizkid has cut up the vocals beyond recognition in this version to create a gritty garage banger.
Bulgarian producer KiNK has collaborated with Rachel Row on multiple occasions, and, as producer of the original version, his “Bass & Beats Remix” is a natural choice for this compilation. The most dynamic track of the three, KiNK’s remix artfully blends Row’s vocals with stuttering breakbeats and a wobbling bassline that together form a euphoric dance anthem.
The full compilation can be purchased on Beatport.
