Just two months after the release of GATTÜSO’s “Walk On Water”, the song has now been reworked by renowned trance artist, Dash Berlin.
Dash Berlin switches up the original with an unexpected tropical vibe, highlighted by a fresh spin on Kat Nestel’s soulful vocals. As the song progresses, it gains more of Dash Berlin’s signature uplifting trance synths, eventually leading into an exhilarating drop. While still capturing GATTÜSO’s vision of the track, the remix gives the original a surprising and powerful twist.
“I approached ‘Walk On Water’ with strong emotional vocals sung by Kat Nestel that also captivated me personally, with a more prominent big room feel to the production as to where this combination will sweep everybody off their feet and make them feel like they can walk on water. The kick-stops in my remix are entirely new, I’ve never done this in any production before. It was a little bit experimental, but turned out great!” – Dash Berlin.
“Even though it was never officially released it was so awesome to see Dash Berlin support his remix of my song “When In Rome” during his sets around the world. I can’t wait until everyone is out playing shows again so we can both showcase this remix as well,” GATTÜSO adds. Earlier this year, GATTÜSO inked a brand new label deal with Ultra Music.
