Track Of The Day: Ivan Gough & Feenixpawl feat. Christine Hoberg – Hear Me
Today we’re bringing you a beautifully crafted, uplifting track from Feenixpawl and Ivan Gough. Feenixpawl, if you haven’t already heard of them, have been putting out quality originals and remixes for the past few years, and have plenty other material since they first formed back in 2003. Aden Forte and Josh Soon, the Australian natives who make up Feenixpawl, have been gracing the airwaves with such songs as their remixes of Ellie Goulding’s “Lights,” Nervo’s “This Kind Of Love,” and Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep.” Once again, Feenixpawl has teamed up with fellow Australian producer Ivan Gough, who is best known for his uplifting progressive house sounds. The last time these three got together, they created a masterpiece that grabbed a ton of festival and airwave play time, as well as the attention of other artists such as Axwell, Tiesto, and many of your other familiar mainstream headliners. If you’ve been to any show at all, you’ve heard the easy-to-sing-with lyrics of “In My Mind,” where the crowds loudly exclaim “…in my head, this is where we all came from!” That’s what happens when Ivan Gough and Feenixpawl get together… they get in your mind, in your head, and make you sing for all to hear. So it’s not surprising we’re here today featuring “Hear Me,” their latest single.
This time around, they opted to go with Christine Hoberg instead of vocalist Georgi Kay, and I’ll tell ya: they made a great pick. Georgi Kay is a great vocalist, but Christine’s voice really makes this track special. She carries a sound that I’d expect to hear in the vocals of a song by Ferry Corsten or Markus Schulz. A sound that perks your ears up, makes you close your eyes, sing along, and actually feel the music. Hell, I actually had to search the internet for a bit because I could have sworn this was Justine Suissa’s (vocalist in Oceanlab) voice, just under a new alias. It’s THAT good. You’ll see when you give it a listen. Digressing from the vocals, Ivan Gough and Feenixpawl do a stellar job fusing their styles together once again as Ivan’s uplifting essence resounds throughout the entire song, while Feenixpawl have inserted their bouncy beats and synths to make your feet just want to keep dancing. Having just gotten back from EDC, I’m actually slightly upset I didn’t hear this song get played, as I would have loved to dance out to this. Regardless, expect this track to start popping up at shows everywhere. This track is a MUST HAVE for DJs and summer playlists, so make sure you grab it off of Beatport.
Not a fan of uplifting progressive house? Not to worry! You can also grab remixes from The Only (Dutch), Blindsight (Drum And Bass [My Favorite]), Beni (Tech), and Late Night Alumni (Chillout)!
