GAI BARONE CHARTS PUSH – UNIVERSAL NATION – GAI BARONE REMIX

Celebrating our 25th year, we present a contemporary take on one of our most recognisable anthems from back in the day. Progressive maestro Gai Barone takes the driving seat on this one as he delves deep into the anatomy of Universal Nation, penned in 1998 by a stalwart of Belgian trance – Push. From the very first play out, this one became an instant classic with its soaring synths, chugging bassline, swirling melodies and driving beats. It quickly gained a massive worldwide following as it spearheaded a burgeoning scene creating a multitude of hands in the air moments for the masses. Overwhelmed by the response, Push aka M.I.K.E. soon found himself travelling the world and playing out in front of thousands, both as a DJ and using a live band set-up. The track also spawned a plethora of remixes from a wide range of artists including Ferry Corsten and Oliver Lieb among others. In 2016, Universal Nation was voted number 1 on Studio Brussel’s The Greatest Switch Top 100 tracks which, stands as a testament to the high regard this track and its creator is held among music lovers. Over the last number of years one name has been synonymous with deep, melodic progressive grooves, Gai Barone. He delivers pure quality with everything he touches and is very much revered by his peers as an inspirational figure. He is no stranger to Bonzai Progressive, he’s contributed several tracks and remixes that have gained great support and he continues to lead the way with his tight production skills and creativity. The perfect choice for this one we think. On the remix Gai takes us on a sublime journey with his alternative take on this classic. Right from the off we find ourselves drawn in as surreal, swirling pads and FX create a scattered texture. Chunky kick drums soon follow and a super tight drum arrangement keeps the rhythm flowing. Vocals from the original masterpiece are on display as well as extended vocal snippets from the original source. In comes that classic melody that fades into existence to the backdrop of a solid, driving bassline that captivates the mind. The break is simply sublime as Gai takes the tempo down before rising back into full on mode. An absolute stomping remix that will definitely become a firm favourite among many.
