A New home for The Shapeshifters and a debut on Defected Records. No arguing that this duo's contribution to Dance music has been very healthy and this 1st single has definitely got the dance floor hyped. Chime, Orbital's seminal rave classic from 89 gets a complete rework ShapeShifters style and this is serious, no I mean SERIOUS. A record that truly united the dance floors back at the inception of dance music's mighty climb and as we clock up 20 years of that rise of music and culture, this revisit is a monumental moment. Bringing this gem squarely in to the naughties is a killer remix from Martijn Ten Velden that has already started to stake its claim as summer No.1 on Ibiza's big floors, Pacha, Space and more, a potent peak time weapon and 2nd time future classic, this sleeping giant is firmly back for heavy rotation.
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
