Just in time to cure the winter blues, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and R3HAB team up for something special. They’ve put a unique spin on a classic with their rework of “Santa Claus is Coming to Town“. The three all-star producers infuse the original’s singsong melodies with a deep, groovy bassline and percussive synths.
Fun and fresh
In addition, these elements complement the dance-friendly vibe of the track, together with the distorted vocals. This is not the childhood tune of your memories; their version of “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town” makes for a merry and adult-friendly version of the old favorite. Although the continuing global pandemic has many of us celebrating differently (and distantly) this year, R3HAB and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike wanted to bring their listeners a little bit of winter joy.
In their words
“It’s always a good time working with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike; we’re excited to share our version of this classic record with everyone. We want this to be a gift to our listeners and a reminder that winter is a season for happiness and togetherness. Be generous and good to each other, and remember good things are ahead.”
“It’s always fun getting in the studio with R3HAB. We have a great synergy and know each other’s strengths, so the ideas always flow naturally. After a tough year, we hope we can spread some positivity over winter and give something back to the people that continue to support us.”
