‘Amsterdam (Marc Benjamin Remix)’, a new remix version of the recent release ‘Amsterdam’ by Japanese production duo AmPm, was released this week!
The original version of “Amsterdam” was published in October, at the same time as this year's edition of the renowned Dutch festival Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE).
"Amsterdam" was the fourth release in a jet-setting series of dance music tracks from AmPm, named after cities around the world where the duo found inspiration. The track was featured prominently on Spotify playlists such as Friday Cratedigers, Electro Mix and Mint Japan, alongside figureheads of the dance music scene. It was hotly received around the world, leading to a guest DJ mix by AmPm on Italian radio show 105 InDaKlubb and interviews with several influential dance music outlets like EDM Nations.
Now "Amsterdam" has been remixed by Marc Benjamin, an accomplished aspiring artist with 1.2 million monthly Spotify listeners who remixed previously known artists such as Afrojack and Zedd. One of Holland's hottest DJs, Benjamin had been a resident of Amsterdam's largest nightclub Escape for five years and headlined the Ultra Bali Festival.
The track is a joint effort by AmPm employees around the world, from remixer Marc Benjamin to Dutch dance labels TurnItUp Muzik and Blackhole Recordings.
The melodic hook of the original track now carries a deeper emotional edge, combined with a deep rave-style sound, resulting in a denser dance atmosphere.
Message from Marc Benjamin
"I am honored to remix this album by the mysterious Japanese act AmPm, and since I was born and raised in the Amsterdam area, this album was the perfect addition, have fun!"
Message from AmPm
“This is only the second time someone has remixed one of our tracks, and Marc Benjamin's incredible musical acumen resulted in a song that sounds brand new. The remix is more emotional and powerful than the original. We hope that you will listen to both versions to see how they compare and we can't wait to play this remix in a DJ set when we can finally get back to you in person! "
