REVIEW: Static Revenger - Happy People (Remixes) out on Armada Music

Originally Released in 2000, and later charted by Fatboy Slim as one of the Top Ten Dance tracks of the Decade, 'Happy People' enjoys a remastered release on Armada Records this summer. With the remaster having been added to the highly sought after SiriusXM 'Electric Area' playlist immediately after release, the first remix package lives up to the task of reinventing this venerable classic with a techy floor filling romp by rrotik, a cheeky disco/ talk box take by Lliam + Latroit, and sunset vibes by chill house wizards Sunset Child.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Happy People Get Down on the dancefloor and dance like you never did before. In so dark and sad moments, it is such a big pleasure to listen new remixes of the Static Avenger immediate classic Happy People. Armada Music took care to bring the very best remixes.First is the Lliam and  Latroit disco house version with certain Daft Punk influence in it. Energetic basslines, chunky grooves and old school flavour with great synths and irresistible rhythm to keep you swinging all night, Rrotik remix is an excellent minimal playful tech house version that focuses on the playful basslines, minimal synths, bouncy wobbly grooves and well known vocal samples. My favourite version is the deep melodic house beauty  by Sunset Child. Smooth, relaxing with organic drum programming, great guitar riffs, vintage synths and infectious grooves while the vocal is applied in the finest way to make you scream and shout. Be Happy, We deserve it! #PureGold Love it[/content]
