Although it doesn’t feel like that long ago, the super chart topping hit “Don’t Call Me Baby” officially just turned 20 years old. Feeling old yet? This song straight up took the duo Madison Avenue to superstardom and their hit ended up at the top of pretty much all the Pop charts across the globe. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of this 90’s iconic smash hit, Vicious Recordings enlisted non other than Patric Topping on remix duty, to give the track a modern club/rave feel. And let me tell you, Patrick didn’t disappoint!
I didn’t actually think it was possible. In fact it is not. Yet somehow Patrick Topping magically resurrected Madison Avenues’ “Don’t Call Me Baby” with an infectious mixture of techno and tech house. This aggressive revamped club track is non-stop flair and fire. He didn’t use a modern vocalist for his remix, he brought back the original vox and utilizes it in the most intelligent way possible. Topping shows off a baseline only someone who knows how to move dance floors can create. The base runs through the length of the song and you’ll never give up on it, it’s addictive.
His intricate hat patterns will keep you in step while his breakdowns are those enchanting memorable moments of “Don’t Call Me Baby” but sliced up in Toppping new way. You get a vibe from Patrick in this track and that’s “I am coming for you!”. This now dark, alive and sexy remix was originally dancy but now this clubby remix takes the energy to the next level. You may find yourself reaching for Topping’s remix instead of the original, at least we sure hope so. Hope you can handle it.
It is definitely a fresh take on a Pop classic and it is ready to dominate clubs, music festivals and raves, once again. A must have for your party playlists, and a must buy for Techno and House music DJs!
