Basto is Belgium’s freshest EDM export and is well known for his melodic brand of feel-good progressive dance music. His latest release is proving pretty popular, having sampled classic ‘80s pop royalty Spandau Ballet and their global hit ‘Gold’. Basto utilises the tremendous vocal pipes of Tony Hadley from Spandau Ballet, marrying the familiar hook of ‘Gold’ with a banging main room electronic vibe that’s been smashing it at gigs across the globe.
Basto’s take on ‘Gold’ manages to mix a more aggressive electronic sound with the ingredients of an energy anthem all over an indestructible bass. It’s a strong step up from his previous big room tracks like ‘Gregory’s Theme’, ‘Again & Again’ and gives a massive nod to his current Beatport chart topping track, ‘I Rave You’. Basto is constantly heading club charts with his remixes including ones for Kylie Minogue, The Wanted, Ed Sheeran and Flo-Rida to the recent smash hit ‘212’ from Azelia Banks featuring Lazy Jay, Conor Maynard, Stooshe ft. Travie McCoy, Lil John ft. LMFAO, Labrinth, Mobyand Sander van Doorn! It’s out 29th July, have a listen below.
