'This is a number one record' Pete Tong
Traditional Irish music has been around as long as anyone can remember. Why has it lasted so long? Because you can't help but enjoy yourself if you're dancing a jig! With 'Paddy's Revenge', legendary producer/DJ Steve Mac has merged the old dance music with the new and has created the biggest, smash hit floorfiller of the summer! Released on 1st September on 3 Beat Blue, Paddy's Revenge has already hit #1 in the Cool Cuts chart and its first airing at the Radio 1 Big Weekend in Maidstone saw Pete Tong, Vernon Kaye, Zane Lowe and 10,000 clubbers all linking arms and dancing an Irish jig ...
Steve Mac was approached by Steve B from creative music company 'Big Fish Little Fish' with an idea for a track that was either utter madness, or a stroke of genius; neither was quite sure which. Two weeks later as Pete Tong dropped it at the Radio 1 Big Weekend, it became apparent that 'stroke of genius' didn't even begin to cover it! Since then the support for the record has been unrelenting, crossing genres and boundaries, championed by everyone from the uber-cool to the commercial.
The track itself starts off as a groove that you might hear pumping from the speakers in any of the world's coolest clubs, without a hint of what's to come. Different elements of the traditional Irish instruments begin to loop their way into the track as it keeps building and building. Then all becomes clear as it drops into the full, traditional Celtic chorus, backed up by Steve Mac's understated dance beats, and before you know it your kilt's above your knees and you're dancing a jig!
Much like Samim's 'Heater' the huge hit from last year, 'Paddy's Revenge' is becoming this summer's 'holiday song' and is already a massive hit at holiday destinations everywhere. The tune is also a massive trailer for the BBC this summer on TV and radio. And with full support from Radio 1 DJs including Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Kissy Sell Out, Zane Lowe and Vernon Kaye, there'll be no escaping Paddy's Revenge!
