Description

Out now - http://bit.ly/POTouchMe Continuing the run of single releases from Paul Oakenfold’s recent Trance Mission album, we present a cover of what is arguably the biggest electronic vocal record of all time “Touch Me”. Originally by Rui Da Silva & Cass Fox and released in the early 00s the new adaptation by Paul Oakenfold took things in a more chilled direction – but still featuring a completely fresh take of vocals from Cassandra Fox. “If ever there was a timeless vocal classic to cover it’s “Touch Me” by Rui Da Silva and Cassandra Fox. Originally released in 2001 this was a number 1 hit in numerous countries around the world including the UK top 40. I adore this record. The lyrics and vocals are so perfect that when it came to make the cover version I knew two things had to happen – firstly we had to try and get Cass to re-sing the vocals (part of the rules of making a cover means you can’t use any audio from the original composition – everything needs to be remade or replayed) and secondly I wanted this to be a really stripped back almost chill out track so that the vocals had loads of room to breathe and take center stage. I love how this turned out and I was so excited that Cass got really involved when she came in to re-sing her vocals. It’s a completely fresh, exciting and emotionally charged take on the original record and I love it. “ Perfecto Records are proud to present a package of fresh & exciting club and radio mixes. Traversing styles from progressive house to trance this package contains something for everyone. From Paul Oakenfold’s big room house ‘Stateside’ mix to the deep house interpretation with Marcellus Wallace, from the uber cool Mike Koglin take or the party vibe Joyriders mix. From the tougher Perfecto Club mix to the all out trance fest from Thomas Datt – this first package covers all bases. Watch this space for the release of the official “Touch Me” video. Coming soon.
