Carl: “In the darkness of today’s techno, I wanted to create something more upbeat. So the original is a fairly easy track to enjoy, it’s very bubbly and bouncy. But with this new release, Nicole has done a very dark twisted reimagining. It’s now epic techno, which you have to play from start to finish to get the full experience. It takes you on a journey, and it gets stronger and stronger with its twists.
Nicole is a genius. She’s able to pick up on my original concept which maybe isn’t quite the kind of record she would make, but she likes a challenge and she set the bar high and ran away. I think she did a wonderful job with this one.
Nicole: “When Carl asked me to collaborate again, this time on one of his new album tracks, I knew that track had to provide that powerful energy and rhythm that we always bring when we play. “HOW IT MAKES YOU FEEL” has caused a stir on dance floors around the world, so I’m thrilled to finally be able to release this monster track!
