Secret Diaries, the producer we featured a little while back for his Stock-71 double-mix has just let loose this remix of Stubborn Heart’s recent song ‘Knuckledown’. The original starts with a soundscape that makes you feel like you’re on a haunted beach before the warped, melancholic vocals drop in with a mournful lyric.
Secret Diaries has managed to capture all of the emotion in his remix while making it infinitely more dancefloor-friendly. It’s a blissful track, with the piano loop an homage to the ‘good’ house music that people genuinely want to listen to on a night out. It’s also a slow builder, which I’m always a fan of. There’s a sense of fulfillment when you get to the drop and it’s all the more euphoric (in this case, understatedly so) for it.
If you fancy giving the original a listen and casting your own critical ear over it, then you can do that from here too!
