Mark Knight & Funkagenda – Man With The Red Face (Hardwell Remix)
When Toolroom Records said they were going to see their tenth anniversary off in style, few could doubt that Mark Knight and co. had something special in the pipes. Having already called upon Armin Van Buuren to resurrect “Downpipe” earlier in the year, Knight and Funkagenda’s “Man With Red Face” is the next sentimental house classic to be revisited by none other than Dutch heavyweight Hardwell. Young Robert Van De Corput has enjoyed near-unparalleled success on both the live circuit and digital market of late. For his remodel of this well-preserved classic, that viral festival primed aptitude is not lost. Full-bodied synths and big room energy in motion, this respectful yet boisterous remix opens the floodgates even further on Corput’s universal capabilities. The original may still sound timeless on the modern club floor, but a 21st century re-imagining from Hardwell is the icing on the cake where his most prolific year to date is concerned.
