HARBER impresses his sonic signature on the Bee Gees’ ‘Stayin’ Alive’
Applying a modern, re-imaginative touch to a time-honored classic has become its own bandwagon in the past year, and HARBER is hopping on it. In 1977, the Bee Gees‘ “Stayin’ Alive” became a fixture of the commercial charts. A classic synonymous with the apex of the disco age, “Stayin’ Alive” has caught the ears of many in past decades, including HARBER, whose next magic trick entails instilling tinges of contemporary dance in the canonical original.
Imbuing “Stayin’ Alive” with house, HARBER doesn’t hesitate to make the Bee Gees production his own. Making sweeping modifications that range from the vocals to the beat and overall arrangement, HARBER updates “Stayin’ Alive” to suit his 2020 vision in a musical marriage of past and present.
