Any self-professing club aficionado appreciates that where timeless Electronic outings are concerned, Chicane’s infamous collaboration with Bryan Adams takes the biscuit as far as its longevity and continuous modern appeal are concerned. But where Chicane’s beloved original churned global hysteria from day one, the highly anticipated bootleg by Parisian House monger Norman Doray and his like-minded Swedish Peer Albin Myers has struck similar gold. First dropped in 2009 at Sunburn Festival in Goa, the suspense surrounding the duo’s much-adored take on the cultivating club anthem has been lapped up across the globe, making a swell of positive noise for this mysterious unofficial remodel from two of European House music’s most sought-after players.

Having donned his debut compilation to Strictly and with forthcoming stormer Trilogy alongside Arno Cost and Laidback Luke, Doray has proven himself a true European beatsmith, while Stockholm’s Myers has continued to whip up global recognition with his solid peak time offerings while relishing in the hotly anticipated Hells Bells for Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak label. Together, however, this Progressive dream-team mark an all-time-high for exciting and high quality bootlegs. Fusing Chicane’s unforgettable synth line with their own haunting ethnic lead, the duo drive an impressively heavy backbone into this defining Euphoric history-piece, bringing an essential 21st century front of dancing melodics and well-oiled beats to do a world of justice to this imaginative imitation that boasts twice the energy and excitement of the original. In an age where fusing an accapella to an instrumental constitutes a bootleg, Doray and Myers’ optimal efficiency and undeniable care in the preservation of the energetic backbone to this adored club classic mark that as well as being two of the modern industry’s most respectful players, their ability to make something amazing out of Dance music’s rich history is unrivalled.

This Don’t Give Up bootleg is released January 15th via our site.
