Damn, sometimes I forget that you can make a remix for fun...I've done it a lot of times, often with big classics.

It can be sort of magical when you have a big famous melody on your virtual keyboard.

A great remix can be... great... though. It's a way of playing a track, but take it in a different direction. Often, these days it's just the classic with a crappy synth and steroid beats. But that's the production making it bad, not "remixing a classic" itself.

I was intrigued then quickly disappointed. Classic butchering continues.

LOL that was not what I expected. I thought it would be a pretty standard 138 tech-trancer.
Never thought Gouryella would get a prog house, Lane 8-style remix. I like the little instrument at 1:58 - you could translate this track very well to a folk remix with real instruments, Meute style.
Matt Fax is definitely on my radar, and I'm looking forward to more content from him!
Matt Fax doesn't produce uplifting trance. Well known from Silk Music label.

It makes me laugh that they will officially release this but wont let me share my chilled versions of the Gouryella tracks which are coming up to around half a million plays on Youtube. It would help if i could somehow contact Ferry but its proving impossible.
Can't play it on their radio show
(Maybe? Were your other chilled mixes rejected?)

Hot take, but trance classics aren't untouchable and can be remixed by modern artists. It just happens that a lot of remixes are really bad and uninspired (Nocturnal Nights Reworked, anyone?)

Yep, and that makes it more accessible for the newer generation which probably doesn't know it or has not heard it!
You could say the same about the Nocturnal Nights Reworked... but I doubt those guys are getting support from Ferry like Matt Fax just did.

This is actually the first track I hear from him, haha.
Yeah, I would also like to know the reason behind it. I don think the deadmau5 prog followers like matt fax etc likes Gouryella even.
No reason necessary, but his sound doesn't have a deadmau5 feel to it. If anything, this producer is closer to Lane8/Avoure/Tchami. Sure, this Gouryella remix isn't as good as Aura or Ghosts, but it's legit enough and fits nicely with modern house. It's precisely what a 2020/2021 remix of Gouryella should sound like.

We've had a whole decade with just-for-fun yolo attitude.

That's on you, because it *is* a remix no matter whether you think it is or not.
Its not. It says so but that doesnt make it a real remix.

Theres zero connection to the original. The production is his usual snooze prog, then he just added the chords in the middle. Theres no connection. Why isnt anyone trying to do a proper remix? Not just desperate tries to cash in by adding some chords from famous old trance song in the break. Sigh.

And im def no Gouryella fanboy (far from it). Although I see its place in the timeline of trance and its still a proper catchy track.

That practice existed for at least 20 years, sometimes it works, but sometimes it doesn't. That sort of thing can happen with producers who are only known for one style.
