However, when it comes to Spiller and Sophie Ellis Bextor’s ‘Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love)’ it is impossible to dispute the record’s influence or impact. Originally released in 2000, the chart-topping anthem has had a renaissance of late since its acquisition by Defected Records, with the label delivering remixes that continue the record’s legacy.
Now following Purple Disco Machine & Lorenz Rhode’s rework, Italian club don Riva Starr now delivers his storming three remix package. With a nod to the Philly sound on Riva’s Disco Odyssey Mix, luxurious strings courtesy of a live ensemble and a pumping bassline do the talking, while the Disco Odyssey vocal utilises Sophie Ellis Bextor’s iconic top line over the dancefloor-ready remix. Finally, Riva’s Skylight Hard Dub dials up the tempo for a high energy club cut that is unmistakably Riva in its sound.
