Having both successively ridden the vast explosion of global House music, Parisian big room bandit Norman Doray joins the sisterly outfit Nervo for an intense collaborative endeavor in the name of melodic club moments. Opting for a sinewy topline courtesy of Cookie over the more familiar harmonies of the infamous Australian twins, the French producer’s piercing key work is met with uplifting Progressive energy to top this fine collection of 21st century Dance wonderments.

Uniting emotive charisma with the signature Big Room stylings that have seen Doray champion countless global festivals and imprints alike, Nervo’s womanly touch sends this high-end collaboration to the forefront of summer clubbing hysteria.

Out September 24 via Spinnin Records.

Update (19/9): The official video is now available.

  • 95% Norman Doray 5% NERVO

  • And 100% amazing.

  • Sounds pretty good

  • Want to hear the CLMD remix in HQ!

  • Definitely feeling this one. I agree with Andy also

  • nothing special.

  • Oh wow. I’m so disappointed. Really, really truly let down. I heard a version that he played at Beta Nightclub in Denver (Listen at 7.00 minutes in – http://www.hulkshare.com/58mn782y9noi) that is far more house-y, paying far more attention to the vocals and coming with a really unique sound and groovy bass-line. Well, fuck you Mr. Doray if you’re reading this. I’ve been looking forward to this track since I first heard the set back in May, and now I finally get excited for a release date and an official preview, only to find out you’ve changed it completely and now it is this huge, steaming pile of cheesy, generic progressive-house horse shit.

    I’m so sick and tired of this sound in house, and of course I still pay a lot of attention to other sub genres, and these days I would much rather see Nic Fanciulli or Joris Voorn spin than many of the progressive-house names because the music they make isn’t interesting anymore. Why did it need to be changed? Because perhaps the stripped down, groovy original did not match the current-day listener’s expectations of huge, big room synths and massive, hands in the air drops. Well, fuck this and fuck you Doray, you’ve massively disappointed a huge fan.

  • ed clowes: you should check out fatboy slims interview from tomorrland 2012. he does a good job of pointing out that this isn’t house music. this is edm or cdm (commercial dance music) theres nothing housey about it. no detroit or chicago feel to it. people need to stop calling this shit house or avicii house and call it what it is. CDM. this shit is meant to sells ralph lauren denim not to groove to. but agreed. Joris and Fanciulli do it right. hopfully they arent ruined and MTVd anytime soon

  • @ed clowes and @Bruso

    you guys just got the point

  • I know I know bro, I shouldn’t even really use the phrase house in trying to describe this. ”EDM” fits much better. Well I like to call stuff like SHM and Avicii etc. ”Stadium House”, because much like with the rock bands in the 80’s, the scene completely outgrew the kind of music they were making and they had to adapt it to their new, super-star status surroundings. The same thing happened with house. Avicii etc., have to play a certain type of house that translates not to a dancefloor in a club, but a 20,000+ arena. It’s a different style. I’m not complaining, SHM put on one of the best ”shows” I’ve ever seen, but that’s jumping music, not for grooving to. And it makes me sad when this stadium EDM is done badly, because it just pisses in the face of the rest of the genre. And especially when the original tune that Norman made was very funky with a nice little bassline that had some soul to it, and now he’s just switched it up completely to fit in. I hate it. And fuck that clown Benny Benassi for shitting on Bob Marley’s legacy with his wank remix of Jammin’…

  • Ed Clowes: The version he played at Beta Nightclub is the CLMD remix.

  • Sweet!!! It’s really strange that he not only played it at Beta but also played it at Thomas Gold & Friends – (http://soundcloud.com/exqlusiv_com/norman-doray-governors-island-nyc-2012).

    Does he perhaps prefer it to his own, original mix? Anyway, official disclaimer: anything I may have said about Doray is hereby officially rescinded. I don’t hate him. I was just so angry about the way he’d changed the feel of the record completely. But, he didn’t! So, all’s well!

  • ”Love” how he re-used the exact same fill http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAqp56rXYLM
    Idk but I feel it’s kind of lazy to use the exact same drums, fills, uplifters and stuff. or is it just me?

  • Helpful info. Lucky me I discovered your web
    site by accident, and I am surprised why this twist of fate did not came about in advance!
    I bookmarked it.
