The remix is the first in a series of reimagined classics courtesy of Renaissance
First out in 1990, Italian duo Age Of Love's The Age Of Love is one of those timeless tunes that appeals to house, prog and trance lovers alike. And now this oft-remixed and oft-reissued classic has had a 2017 refix courtesy of German house don Solomun, which you can hear below.
Solomun's remix is brought to you by UK clubbing institution Renaissance, who are celebrating their 25th anniversary this year. It's the first in a series of such releases, which are collectively known as Renaissance: The ReMix Collection - a nod, of course, to the Sasha & Digweed-helmed album from 1994 that's gone on to be considered one of the all-time great mix albums (hell, it's even got its own Wikipedia page!).
Solomun says of his updated take on the track: "It's a big challenge to remix such an iconic trance classic, because the Jam & Spoon remix was so good. [But] Age of Love is one of the very few tracks from that era that I actually play occasionally in my sets, so it was already a timeless piece of music for me. That's why I said yes! For the remix, I wanted to keep the essence of the track but with another groove. It’s like a trip, until the salvation at the very end."
The new mix is out on Renaissance on 21 July, with the vinyl version housing the aforesaid Jam & Spoon mix on the flip.
