Under Pressure (Juno Ray Club Mix)
Some tunes, while immensely classic in nature and cultural significance, just somehow seem to benefit from a glossy injection of Nu-Disco into its system. Now obviously we’re not throwing the umbrella over every song or declaring that they should made into a disco/club edit, that would be silly, but the way South Korean electronic producer Juno Ray pumps new life into Queen & David Bowie’s “Under Pressure” got us out of bed on the right foot this morning. A powerful lead synth which modulates as if it were pulled right out of a 1980’s MOOG Prodigy kicks Juno Ray’s remix into full gear and unsurprisingly Freddie Mercury and Bowie’s iconic, but versatile vocals fold themselves seamlessly into the four-four fueled groove. With the weather stateside beginning to roll back into sunshine and chirpy sparrows making their welcome appearance once again, we’re reviving our thirst for all things Nu-Disco, and with Winter Music Conference in full swing, we can already envision the gorgeous rooftops Juno Ray’s remix may make it to.
