Dance The Pain Away (Eelke Kleijn Remix)

Fri 08 August 2014

Italian electro house institution Benny Benassi tested pop waters in collaborating with Grammy Award-winning crooner John Legend last year.

The result was “Dance the Pain Away,” the first vocal single off his forthcoming album Back to the Pump.

Now Rotterdam native Eelke Kleijn has given the track a smooth deep house rework built on throwback Chicago bass and shuffling hi hats. In selecting and re-arranging choice snippets of Legend’s sultry voice, the Dutch producer has effectively transformed the singer into a repeated sample that perfectly the complements the remix’s relaxed groove.
