STEVE AOKI & AFROJACK and MISS PALMER, “No Beef” (Timmy Trumpet remix)
If you’ve been in a dance club or at a festival in the last 10 years, you’ve heard Steve Aoki and Afrojack’s classic “No Beef” (featuring vocal by Miss Palmer). The legendary release is receiving two remix packages – part 1 has remixes from new blood like GoodBoys, while part 2 is the all star treatment: R3HAB, Timmy Trumpet, Italy’s Gabry Ponté (of Eiffel 65 “Blue” fame), and Canada’s DLMT. While each of the latter bring enjoyable elements to the table for their remixes and take nothing away from the power of the original, it’s Timmy Trumpet’s techno-flavoured redux that grabbed me, largely because techno seems to be in comeback mode and it perhaps had more of a sense of fun going on in the mix. Regardless, dance music fans can’t lose with this versatile package!
