The world of the weary traveller played its part in the naming of Dennis Ferrer's latest dancefloor smash… "I was inspired by all the traveling that I’ve done throughout my career and hearing that damn “mind your step” public message every time I'm in Schiphol Airport!" Dennis told Defected.com recently. "Traveling and being in music business takes its toll on any kind of family or relationship life. It takes a very special person to deal with "our" eccentricities. So this record is a reminder to anyone who travels whether physically or mentally in and out of a relationship to please Mind Your Step."
With the original track seeing a release on Defected last month and already taking the summers floors by storm, thanks in no small part to the incredible vocal from Janelle Kroll, the remix package sees a return to its original home and Dennis' own Objektivity imprint.
The trio of mixes is lead by Dennis' own Dub Mix which further promotes his exciting return to a fully analogue studio set up. The bass 'drone' of the original is replaced by a warm, full and textured groove-heavy baseline which works to perfection as Dennis chops Janelle's vocal and twists the filters.
With Dennis recently remixing his track 'Underground', Cecille boss Nick Curly returns the favour and takes Mind Your Step on a deeper trip. His bubbling bass-synth grooves throughout as Janelle's re-pitched vocal floats effortlessly between the beats. Finally label main man Andre Hommen takes us deeper still before his rework opens up and drives us home.
