The word anthem is often misrepresented by music journalists to add a certain sparkle to a track, but in this case anthem is exactly the right word to describe Olive’s seminal trance track from the late 90s. Lovingly re-imagined by Amsterdam based DJ/producer Patrice Bäumel, it gets the hairs on the back of our necks standing to attention from the first beat!
“This is a secret remix I made of one of my all time favourite tracks, Olive’s You’re Not Alone. I always found the original a bit too fast to fit into my sets so I decided to make my own; [a] more house and techno-friendly version. It’s mastered by my favourite engineer Chris Alexander and ready to play out. Enjoy!” – Patrice Bäumel
