Roland Clark’s ‘I Get Deep’ gets remixed by Roland Leesker
As part of the 20th-anniversary celebrations of Get Physical Music, the label is to reissue Roland Clark’s stone-cold classic ‘I Get Deep’ in the form of the original acapella and two new remixes. One comes from Rework and one from Roland Leesker, whose version is also included in the full and upcoming ’20 x Get Physical’ compilation.
Clark’s original from the year 2000 is one of house music’s most iconic tracks; an anthem that is adored by fans across the world for its irresistible groove and almost spiritual vocal charm.
Remixing it is a huge task but one that German pair Rework are more than up to. Michael Kuebler and Daniel Varga are scene mainstays with 20 years of experience behind them and credits on the likes of Visionquest, Playhouse and their own Exlove label. Their ‘Rework Anyway Remix’ is filled with squelchy synths, trippy FX and a driving groove. The vocal is teased out and redeployed in freaky fashion as the taught bass and disco-fired stabs keep things moving in an electric fashion.
Then comes a truly standout remix from Get Physical Music main man, Roland Leesker. His small but well-formed discography is packed with timeless house music and he has also put together the forthcoming ’20 x Get Physical’ compilation with his usual aplomb. This remix finds him on a tech house tip, with textured drums and smart filters building tension throughout what is a drawn-out and captivating track. The vocal remains iconic but the mood is more intense and the synths more dramatic. This is a monster remix that is sure to be setting dance floors alight for months to come.
Last of all is Clark’s original acapella which remains as spine-tingling and potent as ever. These are two timely and tasteful updates of a much-loved slice of deep house music.
