A lot’s changed in the world of house music since 1999, but Madison Avenue’s cult hit ‘Don’t Call Me Baby’ is a classic that has stood the test of time, and would still easily get crowds buzzing in any modern set. Nevertheless, the team over at Vicious recordings have assembled a remix package to mark this 15 year anniversary in style, re-imagining the original for the current day audience and highlighting how the electronic scene has evolved from then to now. Probably the best example of that development in musical styles is the version from young Australian producer Just A Gent. At only 16 years of age, he likely only started walking when the original first hit the charts, and yet his wonky off-beat jam manages to reinterpret it perfectly for the varied tastes of today’s listener. On the flip-side, the package also contains the veteran influence of Tommie Sunshine, who weighs in alongside The Disco Fries for a more conservative approach. Rather than reinvent the wheel, this remix respects the enduring groove of the original, amplifying the different elements of production where necessary and providing a thorough update to this track to make it ready-built for the dancefloors of 2014. The other one we’re calling out is from the remix competition winner Filterkat, hailing from Australia’s Gold Coast. With an infectious funk and insane effort on the beat, this nu-disco edit is ready to elevate any summertime dance playlist to the next level. Altogether this makes for a complete time-machine experience for the 1999 hit single, transporting it 15 years into the future and showing off all the production qualities we get to enjoy in this amazing era of dance music.

The package is available on Beatport now.
