Roger Sanchez’s “Another Chance” is an all time house classic. To commemorate its 20th anniversary, Oliver Heldens gave the former number one single an official remix that maintains the nostalgia of the original, while showcasing a more modern progressive house sound. Oliver has been playing out this track at some of his most recent live sets, including Lollapalooza and Creamfields UK, and the crowds have been loving it.
The track opens sounding a lot like the original, with that iconic vocal refrain echoing in the background. The track starts building until we get to the pulsating drop with varied synth notes playing over the low-end. The sound is reminiscent of some of Oliver’s more recent tracks like “Balearic Mornings” and his “By Your Side” remix. Here’s what both legends had to say about this iconic track.
“Roger’s ‘Another Chance’ is one of my all time favorite House/Dance music records, so it’s such a big honor for me to do this remix for the 20 year anniversary of this iconic song! While trying to stay true to the original, I went with a more modern Progressive House approach and the result is pretty epic, but still timeless I think. I’m super happy with the great response on it so far from my recent shows in the US and at Creamfields in the UK, and judging by all the DJs that have already hit me up about this remix, we might hear it on many different dance floors in the near future. Hope you like it too!” – OH
“I’m excited at the approach Oliver has taken to ‘Another Chance’ – he has kept the spirit of the original, but added his vibe to it and the result is epic! It’s been great collaborating on this version with him, and I’m looking forward to seeing the reactions on the dance floor!” – RS
