Thursday – Drum & Bass remix. 12/01/12. Armin Van Buuren – In And Out Of Love (Invaders Of Nine remix)

Thursday’s child was vulnerable,

What do you do in life when something you believe you want so badly lets you down? Do you let ego take over and throw away your problems, or do you realize that some things are worth fighting for, some things are better dealt with and learnt from. People have their reasons for how they react, whether it be past experiences, what they went through with their parents, or what Justin Timberlake and Ashton Kutcher do in totally awesomely real romantic comedies. Is it that easy to fall in and out of love?

Much like a good song, I think it’s funny as a DJ when you perform and people only react to songs they have heard before, songs they love already. Bitch, you had never heard this song before you heard it the first time? Then it goes the other way and you drop a song that is guaranteed to make them panties wet, only to find everyone is tired of listening to the same crap everywhere they go, people fall out of love with everything (and everyone?).

Today’s track is from the legend that is Armin Van Buuren, the Dutch DJ/Producer that has stayed true to his Trance roots whilst seeing compatriot Tiesto move into the bigger money pool of House and Electro. If you ever see a gig advertised for this man, buy four tickets right now! The money spent is worth just as much as you would pay Ricky Gervais to personally insult you.

Trance is best heard outside the bedroom and his 2008 hit In & Out Of Love is the Anthem of popular club worthy tra… sorry I just had to stop typing for a second to realize what I saw was true, check out the video below to be one of the 111 MILLION people that have viewed it (thats in the sneezing baby panda range!). Sorry where was I.. oh right, This is THE anthem of popular trance, and it seems to be the perfect anthem for how my week is going.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it every time, I bloody love remixes of good dance tunes that are given new life through a different genre. I might have fallen out of love with Buuren’s version over time, but damnit have I fallen in love with this new version.

Pay some attention to these guys, Danny Evo & Mark Sherwood, together they make up the Dragon Dancefloor Destroyers, or as these Welshmen prefer to be called, Invaders Of Nine. These boys have been kind enough to share with us their phenomenal remake of In & Out Of Love. I never knew that Trance could be so well represented in Drum & Bass. This feels like it would if George Bush worked as part of the 2016 Democratic Strategy team. It works, simply enough, it works so well that if you weren’t one of the 111 Million people that I know have listened, you might think this is the original. It reminds me of Kaskade’s earlier forays into the genre with beautiful results.

Sharon den Adel’s ethereal vocals are wrapped around subtle changes in tempo that reflect the songs undertones. You feel yourself drained of emotion and energy with the melancholy of Downtempo anesthesia, only to have it picked back up as you fall in love with the fervent driving percussion melted to happy electro synths. The Invaders have surely invaded my brain this week as they continue the confusion of emotions back and forth between subtle dubstep and excited drum & bass, that reflect not only my emotional state, but how I believe Armin intended the original to be interpreted.
