It is the end of an era. On 8 July, at its spiritual home of the Amsterdam Arena, the curtain will rise one last time on a new edition of Sensation. To celebrate, and bringing the Sensation journey full circle, longtime Sensation resident Fedde Le Grand recently released the official ‘Sensation 2017 Anthem’, his reworking of Ian Carey’s track ‘Keep On Rising’. It’s out now on Spinnin’ Records.
The classic house track played a big part at the funeral of Sensation founder, Duncan Stutterheim’s brother – to whom the all-white dresscode is dedicated – giving Fedde’s new version an extra dose of the shivers.
Fedde Le Grand: “To be honest it actually is a record that I’ve been working on for nearly a year now I think. I personally really like the record and how it turned out, I think it’s such a classic vocal and I love the positive and summer vibe it has to it.
“At the same time of course I was super excited already to be part of The Final Sensation in Amsterdam, especially with the prominent but difficult role of presenting the first ever live megamix. So when I heard about the opportunity of ‘Keep On Rising’ possibly becoming the actual anthem to the event, and later learning the special meaning, it really gave me the chills in a positive sense, this really is a ‘meant-to-be’ type of situation.”
To mark the occasion, Fedde is giving clubbers the opportunity to win an exclusive pair of white Fedde Le Grand x Nubikk sneakers and a signed copy of the Final Sensation compilation. To be in with a chance, just share your reason to win on Facebook, making sure you include the follow tags and link:
