The past year has been a wild ride for WhoMadeWho. After releasing their highly-praised album UUUU and wrapping up their biggest world tour yet, the Danish live band is now gearing up for an epic end to 2022. They’ve enlisted the talent of Patrice Bäumel to create one of the year’s hottest remixes. Will they succeed in finishing the year with a bang? Only time will tell.
After releasing their first collaboration “Nefertari” on Cercle Records in 2021, the WhoMadeWho-Bäumel combination has proven to be a winning one. With Bäumel now at the helm of official remixes, this latest record sees the globally renowned in The Netherlands living producer infuse vibrant club energy into one of WhoMadeWho’s standout singles from their latest album, re-imagining the inimitable “Never Alone.”
True to his reputation, Bäumel’s remix is a true masterpiece from the get-go. Manipulating the stripped-back vocals of Tomas Hoffding in the second half of the nine-minute track, the German producer offers a captivating blend of drum rhythms and textured synths, crafting a dizzying piece of house music that hits hard with its first kick drum. Driven by deep basslines and dynamic synths, Patrice’s remix brings the quirky original into the depths of the dancefloor, adding another majestic masterpiece to his expansive catalog.
