A unique pairing of Mark Knight remixing Avicii & Sebastien Drums is due 15th July on Australia’s leading electronic label Vicious Recordings. This was originally Avicii’s first #1 on Beatport and is already hallmarked as an essential summer anthem with Mark Knight’s latest interpretation. The hit song was Tim Bergling’s biggest release with Vicious alongside another 10 singles that were signed to the label who first discovered the talented producer.
This release forms the third release in the massive ‘30 Years of Vicious’ celebrations, as the independent label showcases their biggest hits and global chart toppers, reworked for 2022 by a stream of top producers including Mark Knight, Joshwa, The Cube Guys, Sgt Slick, PAX, CASSIMM, Super Disco Club, Mighty Mouse, Needs No Sleep, KPD, Soul Central, Hotmood and more.
Vicious Recordings 30th anniversary was kickstarted by Don Diablo’s remix of the same song, ‘My Feelings For You’ with all profits donated to the Tim Bergling foundation in honour of his friend and inspiration. It achieved #1 on Beatports Mainstage Chart and accrued over 1 million streams in its first week of release. Now hitting 5.2+ Million streams across all platforms it opens the floor to Mark Knight’s latest remix to further ignite clubland.
This ongoing success of this song, further proves the legacy and impact that Avicii holds in today’s industry. With this iconic song engaging a new audience, Mark Knight further adds his own footprint with great effect.
Mark’s signature house music sound has remained a staple of Beatport and Traxsource charts since they first started, not to mention on vinyl before the digital era of music began. Recognised as one of the world’s most well known DJs and producers, here Mark adds his own unique flavour to the almighty Avicii & Sebastien Drums hit. The Toolroom Records head honcho proves why he is considered one of the most sought after producers and remixers at present.
A powerful and funk fuelled house vibe is the recipe throughout this mix. Complete with original hooks blended seamlessly with Mark’s own trademark groove, he fluently punctuates the theme. The full vocal (attributed to the Gwen McCrae classic) teases with an energy that will lift any crowd. Adding a well timed Pete Tong sample that pays homage to Avicii’s long standing legacy Mark adds a sustained emotion to the track. Mark’s pivotal remix works on a myriad of levels and is already gaining favour with the world’s top DJ’s.
Here’s what Mark Knight had to say about the remix:
“It’s a big deal getting to remix Avicii. He’s without doubt one of the most talented producers we’ve ever seen – a modern day genius who was taken from us far too soon. I wanted to keep my remix sympathetic to the original while also putting my own stamp on it, so I took it back a little closer to the vibe of the Gwen McCrae source material – loosening things up a little and giving it a bit more of a disco flavour. I was honoured to be asked and I hope people connect with the results.”
This incredible new version is destined to fire up dancefloors across the world and respectfully give justice to the original club anthem that was created by one of the worlds most prominent electronic music superstars. Vicious Recordings are scheduled to announce a remix competition at the end of the season that will further highlight the importance of Avicii as an artist, in conjunction with the Tim Bergling Foundation to help mentor and nurture new talent with a sustained approach to personal wellbeing and positive label support.
“My Feelings For You” by Avicii & Sebastien Drums (Mark Knight Remix) is set for release this July 15th on Vicious.
