REVIEW: Wolfpack vs Avancada - GO! (The Remixes) out on Smash The House / Armada Music

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike give their take on Wolfpack vs Avancada ‘GO!’

Not content with being the #1 DJ’s in the world, recent movements suggest Belgian brothers Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike are hell-bent on total world domination. After their recent win at Mexico’s EMPO awards, where the duo picked up an impressive 3 accolades, they have been hard at work in the studio, giving us their version of the massive Avancada’s 1999 Hard House hit ‘GO!’ featuring the production talent of Wolfpack, who’s recent collaboration with Warp Brothers - ‘Phatt Bass 2016’, reached a mighty #5 in the Beatport chart. Premiered at the recent Bringing The Madness shows in Antwerp, and with a remix package also on the way, ‘GO!’ looks set to smash both the charts and dancefloors worldwide.

The track is unmistakably Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, with uncompromising beats driving the whole track. The breakdown is punctuated by an ominous looping stab and womping synths, which build up towards the cheeky vocal from the original ‘GO!’. The duo also takes the piercing synth that was a standout element in ‘GO!’ and uses it to tease the drop before the massive bassline signals the cue to start dancing. 8-bit melodies break up the relentless beat and provide a great counterpoint, gluing the track together and showing just why Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike are at the top of the dance music pyramid.

On ‘GO!’, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s expertise is on show throughout, and provides evidence, if ever any was needed, that the pair know exactly how to concoct a club track that works. They have firmly established themselves as one of the biggest names in dance music, and given their recent successes, it looks like the duo are showing no sign of letting up.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Wolfpack recreate Avancada massive trance hit GO! supported by an extensive remix package that will bring happiness and joy to the festival fans. Firstly is the owners Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike who unleash a very powerful combination of electro house basslines, pumping grooves and of course early 90's samples of great rave sounds. The result is pure party entertainment that will make you sweat for sure and will make many older rave dads go crazy along their kids. Vincent Price in his remix combines hardstyle basslines with banging grooves and  great breakdown that teases the audience and slowly builds adrenaline and tension to the maximum. Avancada vs J3n5on Remix takes advantage of the well known theme and melody and keep that 90's vibe alive.  KFJ Viper Mix  is a playful trap mix that has style and great rhythm to keep the bodies shaking and groovin, Lastly  VP's Love The 90s Mix as the title suggests is a version that stays truthful to the original and sounds like a remix coming from that era rather something current. Top notch release that will catapult the charts. #PureBassPower Love It[/content]
