One of dance music’s all-time classics has been given a fresh lease on life, courtesy of Australian producer SGT Slick. Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s “Relax” was originally released in 1984, and it quickly became an international sensation. The song’s mix of danceable rhythms and suggestive lyrics made it a club staple, and it has since been covered by dozens of artists.
Frankie Goes To Hollywood – Relax (Sgt Slick’s Melbourne ReCut).
Slick’s remix stays true to the original, but adds a modern twist that is sure to get bodies moving on the dance floor. The result is a catchy and irresistible track that is sure to become a new club anthem this summer that you’ll most likely will hear on the coming summer festival’s like Defected’s new Malta festival, Elrow Croatia or the new Cala Mijas Festival in Spain.
How did Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s ‘Relax’ become an all time classic?
If you are from the younger generations you might not know or be familiar with this classic. And that’s perfectly normal as it was released way back in 1984. It was an international sensation at the moment and still is, although some people seem to have forgotten about this treasure. The song became a club staple because of its danceable movements and dope lyrics. It has been covered by many artists over the years, but SGT Slick’s is a new treatment that definitely stands out of the many cliché remixes we have to date.
Perfect festival tune.
When you listen to the remix, you can clearly hear how the original sound has been kept but with a modern twist that will make you want to get up and dance all night. The catchy beat and overall summer vibe of the track makes it perfect for any party or festival you might attend this year. We already know it will be played on many festivals and we are looking forward to dancing to this one coming summer.
