Greek-Swedish DJ & producer AN21 has created a 2023 rework of Steve Angello’s iconic progressive house cut ‘The Ocean’. This new remix was co-released on Tomorrowland Music and SIZE Records last Friday (August 11). Celebrating 20 years of SIZE Records this year, label boss and one-third of Swedish House Mafia Steve Angello tapped into his younger brother, one of the key figures in the SIZE Records clan, to give a modern update to his legendary track from 2015.
This ‘The Ocean’ rework by AN21 puts a melodic techno spin to the original. It creates a sense of tension and anticipation that unfolds slowly throughout the entire song and allowing Julia Spada’s mesmerizing vocals to fully bloom. Moreover, the 2023 rework of ‘The Ocean’ marks the second release of an exciting collaborative EP by Tomorrowland’s imprint and SIZE Records, celebrating 20 years of SIZE Records this year. Here is what Angello had to say about the collaboration :
“Working together with the family of Tomorrowland, I feel like it’s meant to be. For us to work with their artists and musical platform, just put out great records, have fun together, perform and enjoy, make people smile – that’s what it’s all about!”
Speaking of partnerships, SIZE Records recently came to an agreement with Astralwerks Records. As a matter of fact, all SIZE Records releases are now distributed by Astralwerks. The agreement also encompasses SIZE’s back catalog. With Swedish House Mafia running full steam since their return, it’s safe to say that Steve is keeping himself really busy. You can listen to AN21’s remix below and on all available streaming platforms.
