It’s not every day that you see two very different legendary artists team up for a common cause, but today is one of those memorable days that dance music fans won’t soon forget – the renowned Dutch DJ and producer Armin van Buuren has taken on the challenge of remixing Van Halen’s classic 1983 smash hit “Jump,” one of the most enduring and timeless singles in rock & roll history.
Armin van Buuren puts his signature, uplifting, progressive, trance spin on the iconic rock anthem, kicking off the remix by isolating front man David Lee Roth’s classic verse and adding in arpeggiating synths and cowbell for good measure. Naturally the remix explodes once it reaches the song’s classic chorus, and never lets go from there, steadily building until an unforgettable climax. Who would’ve thought “Jump” could get any more anthemic?!
