First of all, I was really confused where the original of this song came from, so let me explain: In 1999 the indie pop band The Magnetic Fields released the album “69 Love Songs.” As you can guess, the album had 69 songs about love (kinda) and one of those songs was “Come Back from San Francisco.” Now, about a year ago Martin Kierszenbaun (aka Cherry Cherry Boom Boom) covered the song, incorporating a dance beat and layering synth pop all over it. All that means is, today, we have the pleasure of hearing two remixes of this cover!
Michael Woods has been on fire recently, with smashing remixes like “Beautiful World” by Tiesto and Mark Knight ft. Dino, and his platinum production “Changed the Way You Kissed Me” with Example. Currently, he performs during Toolroom Knights at Space, Ibiza and will be making his way across Europe and North America in the coming months. His progressive house remix of “Come back from San Francisco” demonstrates classic Michael Woods - mixing lighter, happier elements from the original and smashing them apart with layers of great drum lines and some well-placed cowbell.
Providing the second and decidedly different remix, Bassjackers weave their signature wobble-esque sound together with the song’s uplifting male vocals to produce a great electro house tune. The result: a much bouncier (possibly dancier) track that remains truer to the original cover. These guys will be sticking around Europe for the remainder of July, notably performing on the V Sessions stage at Tomorrowland in Boom, Belgium July 28th, alongside the likes of Felguk and the Bingo Players.
