Artist: Dirty Vegas
Title: Do What You Feel (Remixes)
Label: D:vision
Released: Out now!
Genre: House

Dirty Vegas (Paul Harris and Steve Smith) have been making music together for nearly 20 years. 2001’s debut single ’Days Go By’ catapulted them to Grammy success, winning the group Best Dance Recording. In the rollercoaster two years that followed, they released their eponymous debut album and headlined their own worldwide tour, in addition to supporting like-minded artists such as Moby, Underworld and Groove Armada. They went on to sell over 1 million albums and were named No.6 in Billboard Magazine’s ‘Top selling Electronic artists of the 2000’s’.

Since then Dirty Vegas have released two subsequent albums with international chart success. 2004’s ‘One’ had the smash single ‘Walk into the Sun’, which hit No.1 on Billboard’s ‘Dance Club’ Single chart, and 2011’s album “Electric Love’ reached No.4 on USA i-Tunes ‘Dance Album’ chart. In 2014 they had the honor of being the first electronic artists to perform at the Grammy Museum in LA, followed by the release of their eagerly anticipated EP ‘Let the Night’ which reached No.3 on US i-tunes ‘Dance Album’ Chart and achieved certified ‘Gold’ Status in Italy.
All eyes are now on their fourth album, ‘Photograph’ due out later this year, featuring the new single, ‘Do What You Feel’, and last year’s ‘Let The Night’ alongside nine other brand new tracks.

‘We feel like this new album is some of our best work to date,’ says Dirty Vegas. ‘It’s a journey back to our club roots.’

Bursting with summery Ibizan goodness, the new single is pointed squarely at pop chart success. Feel good vocals and a bright Spanish guitar line lead the way, and are underpinned by a solid 4/4 house beat. Remixes come from three of Germany’s brightest stars, Timo Jahns who takes things towards a deeper 6am deep house vibe, Zwette who adds a chilled piano line for a perfect beach house sound, and finally, the hotly tipped 18 year old Paul Vinx reworks the original into a bass driven deep houser.

Great to see Dirty Vegas back doing what they do best. Can’t wait for the album to drop!
