TAPPED AS AN EXCLUSIVE PARTNER FOR
THE RELEASE OF THE DJ VERSION OF
MICHAEL JACKSON’S “LOVE NEVER FELT SO GOOD” (FEDDE LE GRAND REMIX)
REMIX AVAILABLE TODAY (MAY 19)
BEATPORT, an SFX Entertainment Inc. company and the principal online destination for electronic music culture, today announced it is an exclusive partner with Epic Records/Sony Music Entertainment for the release of the extended DJ version of Fedde Le Grand’s remix of Michael Jackson’s “Love Never Felt So Good.” The exclusive remix by the Dutch house legend Le Grand is available to Beatport users today, May 19 here: http://www.beatport.com/release/love-never-felt-so-good/1306386.
“Love Never Felt So Good” is the lead single from Michael Jackson’s posthumously released album XSCAPE (out now). For the track that made its debut May 10 on BBC Radio 1’s “Dance Anthems with Danny Howard” show, Beatport is the first outlet to receive an exclusive remix from the album from the late King of Pop.
“Being asked to remix this single has been the most honorable and at the same time scary and exciting thing that’s ever happened to me,” says Fedde Le Grand. “For me the most amazing thing would be if via this remix I can contribute – if only a little bit – in bridging the gap between the 1980’s and 2014. There is so much really good music from the past that would still have its relevance today and Michael just simply is the King of all stuff that was ever out there.”
“Beatport is committed to constantly surprising our customers with new exclusives unavailable anywhere else. We are honored to be given the opportunity to deliver this new track from a true music legend to our loyal users,” adds Clark Warner Executive Creative Director, Beatport, “…and look forward to DJs breaking it to their millions of fans on the dancefloor and beyond.”
