- The Drums (Markus Schulz Remix)
- The Drums (Robbie Rivera's Juicy Mofo Remix)
With 'Exploration of Space' and 'Back To Earth' currently occupying the top 2 positions on the Beatport trance chart, its time for 'The Drums' - Cosmic Gate's first ever release - to become the third track to line up for a big remix-revamp.
This time the track comes to you with a distinct Miami connection as, quite by chance, two of the city's best-known production minds both elected to revisit the track. Live in the same metropolis they might, but style-wise what they've done to C.G.s 1999 career-launcher is worlds apart.
Markus Schulz programs together bellicose beats, snares, rim-shots and modulating synths to start the pressure levels rising. Interlocking them with pulsating bass, whip-smart key changes and 'The Drum's Force 10, fierce-as-hell lead riff, his remix is set to rain trance fire onto the dancefloors throughout the coming months...
With his Juicy Mofo Mix, Robbie Rivera rebuilds 'The Drums' from a different point of view, lowering the tempo and trucking in feisty synth stabs and hard-hitting distortion... Riding a top rocking beats the warping FX storm builds and builds, creating equal amounts of mayhem for the bouncier, housier floors.
