The Light

  • Release Date 2013-11-18
  • Labels Defected
  • Catalog DFTD418D1
  • Description After his massive summer smash 'Hope' earlier this year, Guti returns to the Defected camp, this time accompanied by British star Mark Fanciulli. Guti has fast become a linchpin in the house and techno scene ever since first appearing in the mid 2000's. Mark Fanciulli made his debut only a couple of years ago, but his focus on quality over quantity has fast earned him a glowing reputation. His debut hit 'The Time' on Joris Voorn's Rejected label paved the way for further releases on respected labels Leena Music, Saved Records plus a previous remix on Defected. 'The Light' is an effortlessly uplifting, piano and percussion heavy workout, at once instantly danceable and utterly unforgettable, destined to soundtrack peak-time dancefloors for months to come. The Dub version burrows deeper into the low-end of the track, eschewing the majority of its predecessor's vocals in favour of an intense bass & kick combo. Finally, Swiss DJ and producer Andrea Oliva steps up to create a rendition that further develops the tribal elements of the original, with a heavy, rolling bassline and drawn out breakdown building the tension with aplomb. In a word, big.
