DJ (I Could Be Dancing) [Fascination Remix] – Alphabeat (2010)
Most of Alphabeat’s songs are already dance-able pop, but one would be hard-pressed to NOT feel the rhythm of this particular mix. For this veteran of 90’s dance music, DeeeLite and Ace of Base come to mind when listening to the original version, but the increased tempo, lush layers, and reverb added in this remix take it to a whole new level.
Alphabeat is a Danish sextet who released their first album in 2007 and have thus far seen most of their success in Denmark and the UK. They supported Lady Gaga on the UK and Ireland legs of her Monster Ball Tour. While they haven’t yet released albums in the US, they made their US debut at the 2010 SXSW Music Festival. I think we’ll be hearing more about them here in the US very soon. For now, the CD single for this track, along with the album The Beat Is… (the band’s second) can be purchased in the US as imports.
