Jam & Spoon feat. Plavka - Right In The Night (Pig&Dan & Nicholson Remixes)

Release Date
3 x50 Black Hole Recordings 22 May 2020
Little more than a hot minute since Black Hole Recordings gave us their first ‘Right In The Night’ reworks (big tip-of-the-cap to Johan Gielen & Morttagua!), Holland’s finest return to wrap up the bring-back.

On-point for this pair are Pig & Dan who explore ‘R.I.T.N.’s deeper, more netherworldian possibilities and Nicholson who serves some world-class trance firestarting up top!

Pig & Dan are first to the bench with the duo duly delivering on eight deep ‘n’ stormy minutes of prog-trance magnificence. Plavka’s instantly recognisable refrains shuttle the speakers, backed by the Spaniards’ no-nonsense kicks & shadowy bass. Eddying its atmospheres, P&D comparably crank the reverb, build up that technotic percussion and – post-break – let the drums roar.

Adding to an already unparalleled 2020 discography, trance veteran Nicholson returns to deliver a heart-fluttering re-work of Jam & Spoon’s 1993 hit ‘Right in the Night’. The latest offering from the pioneering producer follows in the footsteps of his releases from earlier in the year like his re-work of Jens’ ‘Loops N Tings 2020’, his remix of Bush Babies’ ‘Delicious’, and original productions ‘Dirty Lil B*stard’ and ‘Inflicted’. Out now on Black Hole Recordings, the Nicholson remix of ‘Right In The Night’ is available across all streaming platforms.

The exotic Middle Eastern rhythm and flair from the original is left much intact but is accentuated by Nicholson’s signature heavy synth-laden sensibilities. Plavka’s profoundly rich vocals are still very much present, fitting in perfect unison with the new vigorously energetic tone of the track. His previous rework of Jens’ ‘Loops N Tings 2020’ impressively charted Beatport for several weeks, peaking at the 3rd position and setting a high precedent for his take on ‘Right in the Night’. Shifting the tune stylistically in a more percussively driving direction, the remix stands on its own as a grandiose testament to how epic in scope and compelling in nature trance as a genre, and dance music as a whole, has become since the early ‘90s.

Mighty new complexions applied to Jam & Spoon’s venerated classic - what’s not to like about that that!?!
