Armin van Buuren has remixed a classic rock anthem — Van Halen‘s “Jump” — into a dance-worthy track more fit for the main stage. There’s no 1-2-3, but there’s plenty to jump about.
The producer first premiered his version at Ultra Music Festival, with a little help from singer David Lee Roth. No doubt, he’ll be playing it again when he hits the stage at EDC Las Vegas and a sea of people will be jumping in unison to this.
Armin revealed to Rolling Stone — “I always thought, ‘What if you could have the energy of that song from 1982 and transfer it to 2019?'”
Well, it sounds a little something like this… the song’s iconic synths matched with a strong beat and freshly processed, crystal clear vocals. The remix feels like an intuitive extension of the original, better built for the now.
Armin’s “Jump” remix is out now via Big Beat Records. Enjoy!
