Mars and Vans ft. Adam Turner
What happens when you combine one the UK’s hottest rising producer/ remix teams with one of the UK’s fastest rising vocalist / DJ’s? Something truly . . . Amazing!
Riding high on the worldwide chart topping success of their Mars and Vans remixes of 7th Heaven’s #1 club & radio hit “Don’t Make Me Wait,” Bastion’s “Suga”, and their single “Fluke” featured in a 2012 international advertising campaign, a pre- released radio edit to select UK stations in June 2012 and to CD Pool UK in late August 2012 found “Amazing” shooting to #1 on England’s Sheffield Live 93.2 FM and to #1 (as voted on by listeners) on the infamous Gaydar Radio’s “My Top 5” with Phil Marriott. Considered a dance taste maker & breaker for the UK, Phil Marriott seized onto this single and quickly rushed singer Adam Turner onto his show for a live 14 minute interview, as well as banging the track in heavy rotation at club residencies in London (Onyx & Popstarz), Brighton (Revenge & Legends) and Portsmouth (Gorgeous).
With a massive radio & club promotional push by American label Swishcraft Music set for the UK, Europe, America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South America in October 2012, a select handful of specialty remixers from each territory were chosen to put their unique spin on this uplifting, hands-in-the-air, soon to be classic, including America’s Swishcraft mainstream house remix team of Matt Consola & LFB (Katy Perry / Nelly Furtado), Argentina’s Progressive House guru & Dbeatzion Records owner Cristian Poow (Adele / Sirens /BK Duke), Canada’s Vocal Tribal sensation Nick Bertossi (Freemasons / Maya / Angie Stone), and the soaring Mars & Vans Original UK mix as well as a bonus unplugged piano & cello Midnight Mix.
