Sometimes artists like to return to their roots to celebrate their own musical success. This week, we’ve been blessed by French house legend Joachim Garraud’s return to the sound that propelled French house, with the likes of David Guetta, from the underground to wider audiences by teaming up again with long time vocal partner Chris Willis for “Don’t Cry (Remember My Name),” out now Ultra Records. With a quarter of century of experience in the scene, from developing one of the first live performance concepts, to writing and producing, including co-writing and co-producing Guetta’s hit album Just A Little More Love, Garraud has been a force shaping the very scene so many fans enjoy today.
Joachin Garraud sets the tone of “Don’t Cry (Remember My Name)” with the same type of synth melodies and stripped down minimal beats that propelled him onto the scene. Garraud expertly weaves in Willis’ vocals while continually driving up the tempo of the track until Willis’ vocals reach their crescendo, ensuring that this track will light up dance floors.
This is definitely one track you won’t want to miss. Pick up a copy today on Beatport.
