Charles D is back at it again. This time, the American DJ and producer goes back to his roots. Last week, Charles D released a brand new fire remix for Mike Macaluso’s 1999 Classic ‘Final Chapter’. The remix, released through Drumcode Records, is a homage to growing up in the NYC rave scene during the 90s.
‘Final Chapter’ by Mike Macaluso was first released in 1999 on Dieselgroove and immediately became an omnipresent classic. Clocking in at over nine minutes, it is a golden dancefloor trip taking in elements of house, trance, and Hi-NRG, and is famous for its rousing bell sample throughout. It’s an iconic sound signature that brought many a dance fan to a weepy state of delirium.
Charles D Gives ‘Final Chapter’ The 2020’s Techno Treatment
Charles D is a perfect example of today’s mainstream techno sound. The producer is nearly unmatched when it comes to creating tracks that can fill a dancefloor. He proved his talent with the release of his epic mix for Adam Beyer’s ‘Your Mind’. Now, he returns with a remix that might prove even bigger.
Mike Macaluso Chimes In
What’s the easiest and fastest way to find out if your remix is any good? Asking the artist behind the original. Mike Macaluso, the genius mind behind ‘Final Chapter’ made the following statement:
“Final Chapter is a very special record to me as it launched my production and DJ career to another level. I have been given many, many remixes of the record from inspiring producers all over the world, but no mix that I received could complement the original. That is until I heard Charles D’s remix. When I received his remix, I then realized why Adam Beyer took a big liking to the record and started playing it in his sets. Charles was able to add a dark techno twist to the original, while still keeping the iconic bells and keylines. There is no other record label that I would rather this remix be released on.”
