Known for his 2016 smash single "Solo Dance," Dutch DJ Martin Jensen has released the latest in a string of collaborations with producer Stefy de Cicco and vocalist Ben Hamilton. Out through Universal Germany, the track is a deep house remix of Kid Cudi's legendary "Day 'N' Nite."
The flip overlays Hamilton's soulful vocal tone over a hypnotic house beat. Its clubby bass line is characteristic of de Cicco, blending seamlessly with Jensen's modern, upbeat sound to put a flavorful dance twist on Kid Cudi's original.
Jensen and de Cicco have previously collaborated, producing a fast-paced mix of ZHU's "Faded" and an original track, "La Passion," featuring vocals from Hamilton. Their latest release fits in with the string of singles, lending credence to their ability to add house flavor to beloved tracks.
“It was quite the honor to get to work on this record and doing my own personal take on such a classic," Jensen said in a press release. "It’s always interesting to see how two worlds combine and whether they work together or not.''
