Martin Solveig and Roy Woods have unveiled an extensive remix package for their latest hit ‘Juliet & Romeo’, out 20th March via Positiva Records. Something of a global sensation, the original has racked up over 26 million global streams alone since its December release.
A package with no fewer than five artists delivering remixes, fresh new group Joy Club steps up first with an atmospheric, progressive rework, honing in on the melodic elements of the original whilst ramping up the emotion from the offset. UK dance music favourite Hannah Wants then opts for a chunky, bass-driven edit before Italian DJ and producer Fabio Neural’s fluttering remix ups the atmospherics while maintaining the whimsy that makes the original so special. Closing things out, UK production duo Star. One delve into the hardcore continuum with their rave-referencing edit that features breakbeats, spinbacks and mutated vocals, before Parisian Mokoa turns ‘Juliet & Romeo’ into a timeless, four-to-the-floor house groover.
In need of no introduction, the platinum-certified Solveig spent 2019 performing at some of the biggest clubs and festivals, including Tomorrowland, SW4, Parookaville and a weekly residency at Pacha Ibiza. Smash hits ‘Intoxicated’ and ‘Places’ featuring Ina Wroldsen have seen his reputation continue to rise. Overall Solveig boasts over 1 billion global streams and has sold over 9 million singles.
