To celebrate Roger Sanchez‘s classic “Another Chance” track, Sanchez tapped Dutch DJ/producer Oliver Heldens to provide a stunning dutch house remix on Ministry of Sound.
Heldens took the original piece and upped it while maintaining the track’s original tone and atmosphere. Modernizing it with deep basses, a pounding kick, and stunningly filtered arpeggios and synths, Heldens’ take on “Another Chance” has breathed new life into it. Personally, I think this is one of the best remixes of the year.
“I’m excited at the approach Oliver has taken to ‘Another Chance’ – he has kept the spirit of the original, but added his vibe to it and the result is epic!” Sanchez exclaims in a press release. “It’s been great collaborating on this version with him and I’m looking forward to seeing the reactions on the dance floor!”
Earlier this summer, Sanchez shared an HD remastered version of the original video directed by Philippe Andre in addition to a 7″ picture disc of the original track.
“It’s incredible to think that ‘Another Chance’ turns 20 this year – where has the time gone?!” Sanchez adds. “That song marked a major transition in my life and a broadening of my connection to the world through my music so it’s great to come full circle and once again work with Sony – the company that helped present it to the world. This track continues to resonate with audiences on the dance floor and I’m blessed to not only have it as one of my creations but to know that it still makes people dance and feel connected to this day.”
Sanchez has been a pioneer in the dance music scene for decades. He’s also the host of the Release Yourself podcast, which received the first-ever Best Podcast Award at the International Dance Music Awards back in 2007. The show has touched the lives of more than 20 million people and is broadcasted in over 30 markets on every continent.
