Ten years later, the smash hit has already received the remix treatment from London-based techno duo Eli & Fur. This time around, Doorn has enlisted remix duties from fellow Dutch talents, the DJ/production duo Avao and Laura van Dam.

Laura van Dam takes the reins next, and effectively instills her powerfully profound signature production elements throughout her reinterpretation. Throughout the entirety of its runtime, one can clearly hear that the track sounds like quintessential van Dam at her finest, while also harkening back to its source material in all the best ways.

Adding edgy sensibilities from start-to-finish, she also provides a newfound bouncy flair that is maintained with ease through several buildups and bass drops.



Avao, consisting of members Levi Kotten and Stijn Rutte, is a DJ/production pair hailing from Amsterdam. Emerging onto the scene eleven years ago, the unstoppable duo have since combined their seasoned experience in both house music and trance to release new, unique music together as Avao.
