Faustix & Litening - Genie In A Bottle (Extended Mix)20 May 2020
Hot on the house and club scene DJ/Producer Faustix brings us a highly energetic revamp of ‘Genie In A Bottle’ in collaboration with British Producer/Singer Litening. The result? An incredibly polished slice of dance-pop packed with energetic synths and uplifting chords. This fresh take is a love letter to one of the ‘90s most adored tracks, officially out now on Spinnin’ Records.
This sleek, modernisation of Christina Aguilera’s ‘90s smash-hit marks the first collaboration between Faustix and Litening. Through clean, sophisticated production the iconic vocal lines are interwoven over strong house rhythms. ‘Genie In A Bottle’ brings a groove that is both catchy and laidback, working up subtle organ chords while a memorable beat takes care of an energy filled drop. No doubt, it’s a crowdpleaser that’s bound to make noise at both clubs and on radio airwaves.
“It's been an absolute pleasure working with Litening on this project. Litening sent me the acapella and I instantly became a 10 year old boy listening to the demo. It took me back to my younger days. It's always a big thing to make a remake of such a big original track. I'm really pleased with the release and showing people what we've done to it.” — Faustix explains
“I'm so excited to release our version of 'Genie In A Bottle', especially as someone so influenced by 90s Pop, to turn a classic into what we musically love and do now has been extra-special and we had a LOT of fun creating this remake. To have support from the original writers as well means a lot to us. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!” — Litening says
