    Push - Universal Nation (Gai Barone Remix) [Bonzai Progressive]







    Next up in our series of remixed classics, celebrating our 25th year, we present a contemporary take on one of our most recognisable anthems from back in the day. Progressive maestro Gai Barone takes the driving seat on this one as he delves deep into the anatomy of Universal Nation, penned in 1998 by a stalwart of Belgian trance - Push. From the very first play out, this one became an instant classic with its soaring synths, chugging bassline, swirling melodies and driving beats. It quickly gained a massive worldwide following as it spearheaded a burgeoning scene creating a multitude of hands in the air moments for the masses. Overwhelmed by the response, Push aka M.I.K.E. soon found himself travelling the world and playing out in front of thousands, both as a DJ and using a live band set-up. The track also spawned a plethora of remixes from a wide range of artists including Ferry Corsten and Oliver Lieb among others. In 2016, Universal Nation was voted number 1 on Studio Brussel's The Greatest Switch Top 100 tracks which, stands as a testament to the high regard this track and its creator is held among music lovers.


    Over the last number of years one name has been synonymous with deep, melodic progressive grooves, Gai Barone. He delivers pure quality with everything he touches and is very much revered by his peers as an inspirational figure. He is no stranger to Bonzai Progressive, he's contributed several tracks and remixes that have gained great support and he continues to lead the way with his tight production skills and creativity. The perfect choice for this one we think. On the remix Gai takes us on a sublime journey with his alternative take on this classic. Right from the off we find ourselves drawn in as surreal, swirling pads and FX create a scattered texture. Chunky kick drums soon follow and a super tight drum arrangement keeps the rhythm flowing. Vocals from the original masterpiece are on display as well as extended vocal snippets from the original source. In comes that classic melody that fades into existence to the backdrop of a solid, driving bassline that captivates the mind. The break is simply sublime as Gai takes the tempo down before rising back into full on mode. An absolute stomping remix that will definitely become a firm favourite among many.

    Boring remix. Only one who actually turned a boring track into something great was ferry corsten and the airwave orchestral remake. That's it..

    Original is one of them most overrated classics and the ferry mix isnt much better. The chord progression are so lackuster and stale,
    Where is the music in todays "trance"?

    I agree but Ferry Corsten polished it into a very good Turd . Still not his best but given how gifted he is, he did an amazing job. Same thing with airwave on how he remade it into a full orchestral which sounded better than the ferry corsten remix.

    Best remix is still the Easton Remix. This is really rather good (I like how he sampled more of The Last Starfighter). but I can hear a few ways it could have been better - different bass chord progression and putting in the arp from his tracks like "Alicudi" for one.

    I'm gonna get crucified for this, but I loved the Orjan Nilsen remix from 2013. This one may be even better! Love when it slows down just before the climax, and then speeds up.

    And yeah, I agree - Gai Barone seems to make a track a day or something.

    Something different! An ok tune. But again. A rework of a classic! What happened to creativity!
