Bedrock Heaven Scent - Massive Remix

Thursday, July 5, 2007
Tong's played it, Tiësto loves it, Paul Van Dyk's has been using it as a peak to his sets, Eddie Halliwell has been giving it massive support on radio and in the clubs, Marco V can¹t get enough of it, Above & Beyond think it¹s one of the best remixes they¹ve heard in years, John 00 Fleming's been caning it, Sander Van Doorn thinks it¹s bloody good, in fact there is not one person in the trance community (and beyond) who does not think this could be one of the biggest remixes of the year.

In case you're not aware Bedrock's 'Heaven Scent' was possibly one of the biggest progressive house tracks from the late 90s. Written by Bedrock head honcho John Digweed and Nick Muir, it was originally released on John¹s Bedrock imprint in 1999 and saw Digweed move towards a tougher sound, thereby transcending the boundaries of progressive house and featuring highly on a multitude of DJs play lists the world over. The track was subsequently licensed to many compilations around the globe, securing its place in dance music history as one of the genres timeless anthems.

Fast forward to 2007 and what started life as a low-level bootleg by fast-rising 23 year-old DJ/producer Greg Downey has quickly been picked up and gone straight to the top of the play lists of the international trance A List. Greg¹s pounding unofficial remix has seen Bedrock¹s late 90s anthem return eight years after it was originally released, giving it a whole new lease of life and is proving to be a sure fire hit not only with those who were there first time around, but also the nu-skool of trance lovers…making this undoubtedly one of the biggest tunes of the year!

Following the dazzling array of feedback received by Greg after sending it out to his DJ heroes, a close friend contacted John and passed on the Remix recommending Greg¹s unofficial remix gets an official release, John was so impressed by the remix and feedback that even though it is far removed from what is now considered the 'Bedrock¹ sound, it deserved a full Release on the label originally responsible for dropping this bomb on the world.
