Mau P is returning the favor after the legendary Armand van Helden released his official ‘Drugs From Amsterdam’ remix back in March. By being commissioned an official ‘I Want Your Soul’ remix, Mau P is joining an exclusive club of artists who’ve been given the honor.
For the first time in close to a decade, an official remix of Armand van Helden‘s seminal I Want Your Soul has been released on Southern Fried Records, this time by none other than Mau P. The prodigious DJ and producer has delivered a thumping contemporary cut while maintaining much of the original’s trademark sound. The Mau P remix is part of an exchange by the two artists, following Armand van Helden‘s Drugs From Amsterdam remix back in March.
By being commissioned an official I Want Your Soul remix, Mau P is joining an exclusive club of artists who’ve been given the honor. Mau P said about the release;
“Being told that the I Want Your Soul edit I made was going to become an official release was another pinch me moment. Armand van Helden is one of my all time heroes and I Want Your Soul is such a classic. I must’ve played it hundreds of times at house parties and even to this day it always hits the spot. I hope I did the track justice with my version, I guess we’ll find out soon enough.”
I Want Your Soul has gone down in the history books as one of the all time classics and gained worldwide notoriety due to its incredible infectiousness. From Marco Carola to Peggy Gou, I Want Your Soul is an instant crowd pleaser to this day. The release has stood the test of time like no other and is exemplary of Armand van Helden‘s genius as a producer.
Mau P is currently helming what might be one of the most rapid ascents to the top in recent house music history. Less than a year after bursting onto the scene with his iconic debut single Drugs From Amsterdam Mau P is hitting milestones at an unprecedented pace. The aforementioned debut has now been streamed over 100 million times on Spotify alone and was the predecessor to a multitude of successful releases. Most recently, Mau P teamed up with Kevin de Vries for his first release on Afterlife with Metro. Metro has been one of the year’s most anticipated releases after becoming a highlight in Tale of Us sets.
Mau P made his Tomorrowland debut last weekend and is already in the midst of a run of US shows, including elrow in New York and Marquee Dayclub in Las Vegas. Additionally, Mau P announced his very first headlining Amsterdam Dance Event show at Thuishaven on Wednesday October 18th, at which he’ll perform from open to close.
