2015’s Best: HEY SUNSHINE remix by Antonio Giacca



By Sugarstarr

Best of 2015:
Outstanding remix by Antonio Giacca

HEY SUNSHINE may have escaped into the mainstream, but those of us who’ve been listening to SUGARSTARR since ’96 have been well-rewarded with a stable of solid, steady-bumping tracks always ahead of the curve.

This huge anthem is one of those tracks you will hear once, and will instantly get stuck in your head like glue.

My current fave Antonio Giacca gives us an amazing house remix that went #1 on the Beatport House charts and #2 Beatport Overall charts in Fall 2015… (Other remixes are excellent as well: Croatia Squad brings a nu-disco vibe to the track and creates a commendable, essential rework.)



Hear this at Beatport Pro (not an ad, just my preferred shop)


This track has been remixed by virtually everyone, but for my money Giacca is the best and only. Here are some of the others:

  • Oliver Heldens
  • Avicii
  • Fedde Le Grand
  • Gregor Salto
  • Firebeatz
  • The Him
  • EDX
  • Moguai
  • Nora En Pure
  • Benny Benassi
  • and many others.



This release from Way Out West is really insane (of the buttery-smooth variety). Each track beats the previous; “We Love Machine” is a wonderful opener to introduce what the album is going to show us. While the entire album (and arguably most of their catalog) deserves to be honored, there’s one on this album I can’t get enough of: ULTRAVIOLET.


“Conspicuous from the rest of Bristol’s electronica scene by the absence of trip-hop or jungle leanings in their productions, Way Out West have instead pursued straight ahead house and trance with closer ties to progressive British dancefloors than American hip-hop. The duo of Jody Wisternoff and Nick Warren first came together in the mid-’90s; Wisternoff was a veteran producer who had first recorded at the age of 14 (with fellow Bristolian house artists Smith & Mighty) while Warren was a high-profile Balearic DJ and club night-promoter influenced by the sounds of Madchester.

asterisk“The duo began recording, and by 1996 their single “The Gift” had become a big mover on dancefloors and the radio as well, thanks to a British advert which used the song. Signed to Deconstruction, Way Out West released their self-titled debut album in 1997. A change of venue, to Distinctive, preceded the release of 2001’s Intensify, and after a three-year interim the duo followed with the similar-sounding Don’t Look Now.

“Warren, who spent time as the resident DJ at super-club Cream, has released several compilations detailing his mixing skills…” (Read the rest on iTunes)
