Arguably one of the most iconic house music moments, born from the black LGBTQ+ scene in Chicago at the legendary Warehouse nightclub and known as one of Frankie Knuckles' earliest productions; ‘Your Love’ is a classic. Written by Jamie Principle and initially released in 1986, it was originally an underground club anthem, which was famously borrowed on the crossover hit ‘You’ve Got The Love’ (The Source feat. Candi Staton) and most recently re-produced by as part of the Director’s Cut project which aimed to update a number of classic cuts for the modern dancefloor.
Working alongside The Frankie Knuckles Foundation and Eric Kupper, SoSure Music have now released two new remixes for 2020 from Darius Syrossian and Alan Dixon.
Sankey’s resident Darius offers his blend of beats to the remix package. His productions are apparently influenced by artists from Detroit, New York and Chicago and having released on labels including Get Physical, VIVa Music and Hot Creations, his remix features rolling beats and big breaks as he taps into the feeling of euphoria that ‘Your Love’ brings in peak time moments.
Darius Syrossian: “It’s probably one of the toughest projects you could ever take, with a track which has this much legendary status. You cannot disrespect it by changing it too much but at the same time you have to put your stamp on it. I'm very happy with how it has turned out. It’s also great knowing that this release is going to be helping out the Frankie Knuckles Foundation.”
With a possible rise through the ranks in a relatively short time Alan Dixon is probably known in the house and nu disco scenes and has recently released on labels including Glitterbox, Permanent Vacation, Running Back and True Romance. His remix features strong beats with an energy through the mix along with a slightly nostalgic vibe.
Alan Dixon: “Getting the opportunity to remix one of the most iconic house tracks of all time is obviously an honour. Luckily with the original having the old Chicago Trax sound I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Retain the original song structure and melodies and just freshen them up for today's dancefloors (if they still exist). Frankie Knuckles if he was from Berlin in 2020...”
