Swiss artist Yves Larock has teamed up with one of house music’s unstoppable forces, Steff Da Campo, for the re-creation of his renowned dance classic, ‘Rise Up' feat. JABA. The result is a sweet 2021 rendition that builds on the original’s feel-good vibe while adding tasty deep house rhythms and a refreshing reggae breakdown to provide the song with a brand new appeal. It’s a classic reborn.
‘Rise Up 2021’ perfectly brings both worlds together. The melodies and warm vocals of the original are omnipresent, this time intertwined with finely tuned 2021 production, building up with gentle chords and subtle beats before diving into a warm deep house groove. The breakdown brings instant bliss, as it mixes the reggae-styled vocals with a sweet reggae beat – bringing the song straight to its melting point. When the beat subsequently drops again, it’s a full release of dopamine – happiness guaranteed.
Steff Da Campo has captured the essence of ‘Rise Up’ with this rework, highlighting the feel-good elements of the original to create something special once again. 2021 might still be a strange year for dance music lovers, this record definitely takes off the sharp edges and makes sure the energy keeps flowing.
“ I am very happy with this new version of Rise Up! Steff Da Campo and I kept the essence of my original track, while also breathing new life with a new 2021 sound. At first, this wasn’t so easy — it took a lot of different tries for both Steff and I to be satisfied with the results… but I think we have something really special here. The new Rise Up 2021 versions are fit for the club and radio, so we’re more than happy with the results!”
