Albums | NYC producer Cheyne Christian drops stunning afro- house bootleg of Message In A Bottle

Posted by on April 5, 2023

Multi-genre, NYC producer Cheyne Christian has served up an enticing afro-house bootleg
of The Police classic ‘Message In A Bottle’ for release on his own Bridge & Tunnel Beat. Co
label. Titled ‘SOS’ and featuring the renowned singing drummer Josh Dion of Paris Monster,
it’s already been on rotation with Claptone who has supported pretty much everything
Cheyne has put out.

When Cheyne turns his hand to a bootleg, good things happen. His rework of Phil Collins’ ‘In
The Air Tonight’ – also resung by Josh Dion – was a smash, as was ‘Sunglasses At Night’
which went down a storm when Claptone dropped it at Pacha Ibiza in his closing set of The
Masquerade. With rolling drums and a deep club groove set to the famous guitar riff and
vocal of The Police original, Cheyne’s ‘SOS’ has all the constituent parts to be on rotation
this summer.

Cheyne Christian is on a fine run of form with his own New York style of Latin, tribal and Afro
house that has been picked up by such quality labels as Nervous, Toolroom, Saved, Force
Of Habit, Wired, Stealth and more.

Testament to his sharp studio skills, Cheyne has a string of high profile fans that also include
Carl Cox, Fatboy Slim, Roger Sanchez, Oscar G, Cedric Gervais, Sam Divine and Shiba

This new bootleg draws on Cheyne’s years of dancefloor experience. Be it a daytime pool
party, club or at sunset, ‘SOS’ is sure to unite crowds wherever it’s played. Cheyne said,
“I’ve always been a huge fan of Sting, especially his voice. As I started to get into the Afro
house sound and experimenting in my sets, the idea just came to me one day, so I made the
acappella and hired a guitar player from Africa to play the riff over the drums and raw Sting
acappella. It got support from some solid names, so I decided to make it an official release.
Josh Dion was great on my Phil Collins cover, and I just knew he would crush a Sting cover.
I sent him the track and 36 hours later I had the amazing vocals back from him.”

There’s something pretty special about Cheyne; he has a unique DJing history that defies
his years. Cheyne’s selector skills were recognised early on and he was made resident at
the legendary Tunnel club aged just 17. He was a hit across the NYC circuit, warming up for
Danny Tenaglia and alongside Roger Sanchez, and landing residencies and quest spots at
other iconic venues including Webster Hall, China Club and Avalon when he was still so
young. The demand never wavered and today Cheyne can be found soundtracking across
the US including some of his favourite haunts, Somewhere NoWhere (NYC) and House of
Hyde at SLS (Miami).

It’s not often you see someone remixing Backstreet Boys, but it does happen. “Everybody,” the group’s 1997 single, was recently remixed by our friend Apashe, and the Australian’s Oski and Lennon. All the millenials out there are going to go bananas, like I did when I first heard this track. The three producer’s show off their diversity by dipping into two styles that you wouldn’t think go together. It just goes to show how talented and creative these producers are. Check out the single, and make sure to grab the free download if you are digging the crossover insanity!

Progressive House | Dekagram Goes Big On Bootleg Of “The Only Way Is Up” By Tiësto & Martin Garrix

Hot off the coattails of Tiësto and Martin Garrix’s “The Only Way is Up” announcement comes a bootleg that’s here to soak up some of the spotlight, and rightfully so. Dekagram, an ATL native looking to make a name for himself in the realm of progressive house, dropped his version of the Dutch boys unreleased single yesterday, and it’s turning some heads. His version takes on the same premise as the original, but he really lets the beast out, and that’s a change we can whole-heartedly welcome. From start to finish, Dekagram lets the floodgates wide open with high powered synth leads, a hard driving bass-line, and tasteful use of the originals vocal cuts.

For those who don’t feel like there’s enough “umpf” coming from Tiësto n’ Garrix’s version, this will definitely do the trick. Dekagram is making big strides of improvement in his productions, which just makes us that much more excited for whatever he’s got cooking up next. In the meantime you can enjoy his “Only Way Up” bootleg as a freebie!

Tchami can do no wrong at this point. The only issue I have is that Tchami keeps holding out on his “Gamngster’s Paradise” bootleg played a million times at his shows. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Take a listen to a preview via DJ Snake’s BBC Radio 1 essential mix. Hit it!

Peter Thomas - All Of You (Steerner Bootleg)


After teasing it for quite some time on his Facebook page, Steerner has finally released his bootleg for Peter Thomas’ “All Of You”. It retains a decent portion of the original but has been reworked into a nice progressive house track featuring the usual melodic, full sounding drops we are used to hearing from him.

Progressive House | Sigma – Nobody To Love (Third Party Remix)

Posted by on April 25, 2014

What started out as a bootleg for the hip-hop classic “Bound 2” by Kanye West turned into an official release for the production duo Sigma. That then was remixed from its drum and bass style into progressive house magic by the UK based duo Third Party. They have not released a whole lot of music recently but they continue to keep the quality of their releases high with this one.
