Green Velvet is breathing some new life once again in his seminal track “Bigger Than Prince.” With this batch of remixes, he tabbed Siege for an up-tempo house mix, Alan Fitzpatrick for a thumping techno mix and Jamie Jones & Darius Syrossian together for their own take on the track. The full remix EP will arrive tomorrow, November 15, on Circus Recordings, but we are happy to premiere the Jamie Jones & Darius Syrossian remix today.
If Darius Syrossian remixing “Bigger Than Prince” seems familiar, that is because he did back in 2014. Now he teams up with Jamie Jones to add a different take on the Green Velvet track.
Syrossian’s 2014 remix went heavy on the acid, but with Jamie Jones he takes a more stripped back approach to the record. They add a strong and heavy techno groove, isolating the kick at points with light fx rumbling underneath before a gritty synth line take over the track. Green Velvet’s vocals remain a focal part of the record.
Yousef explains how he got the track and the global impact of the song.
"After asking Green Velvet for a record for Circus Recordings just over six years ago, he delivered ‘Bigger Than Prince’ and of course the track went on to a be a global phenomenon in all three forms; the original, Hot Since 82 and Martinez Brothers mixes," explains the Circus Recordings boss. "For the new and final remixes the horses have not been spared! Three truly unbelievable remixes from four of the world’s hottest names in house & techno. The beast is reborn for one last rave up!”
The batch of remixes will be released tomorrow, but until then stream the Jamie Jones and Darius Syrossian remix now. And as Green Velvet would like, check your ego at the door. Stop walking around like you are bigger than Prince.
