Paul Oakenfold – Otherside (Future House Mix)
Evidently, Paul Oakenfold has grown an admiration for future house. A couple months ago, the former trance maverick surprised his fans with his remix of “These Hands I Hold,” a production reminiscent of something we’d normally hear on Spinnin’ Deep. Not two months after the remix’s release, Oakenfold has returned with more of the subgenre in his latest re-work of “Otherside” by Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Making the stadium anthem into an EDM-friendly version, the “future house mix” offers all the typical aspects heard in tracks of its kind. Oakenfold’s mission to fit a seminal rock tune into a modernized electronic offering hardly stands out among the plethora of other remixes already attempted, but at the same time it’s quite interesting to observe one of the electronic music’s oldest figures embrace the trend of the day.
