Mark Knight & D.Ramirez vs Underworld – Downpipe (Armin van Buuren Remix) [Preview]
Released in 2009, Toolroom Records’ “Downpipe” has become one of the label’s most iconic tracks. A collaboration between labelhead Mark Knight, electro house producer D.Ramirez and the legendary Underworld, the track has held its own over the years, getting airtime at the world’s largest festivals, radio shows, and even the London Olympics. Now given a rebirth as a part of Toolroom’s Anniversary Remixes campaign, the label invited Adrian Hour, Bontan, and Armin van Buuren to put their own spin on the classic. Armin’s remix doesn’t quite transform tech house into trance, but rather keeps the essentials of the original while emphasizing the synth melody, downplaying the vocal and smoothing out the beat into a more progressive sound. With three new artists bringing their own genres to the classic, the entire remix package will be released August 19th.
