Rotterdam's Eelke Kleijn introduces a fresh twist of his track 'Midnight Affair' by letting Anthony Samaha make his own slow edition !
Eelke Kleijn eases the tempo with Samaha‘s slow edit scoring a ‘Midnight Affair‘.
Anthony Samaha offered something related to ‘De Order Van De Nacht‘, a release of Eelke from 2017. Thanks to the Seattle-based producer’s handiwork, the single’s desert groove now boasts an instantly recognizable Mary J Blige classic. For those with finely tuned ears, the fusion of Blige’s ‘Family Affair‘ and Eelke’s production is seamless, and the final mash-up undoubtedly breathes life into both masters.
Eelke explains how the marriage between these two tracks came about: “In January 2020 Anthony Samaha reached out, saying he was a big fan. He said he had an interesting proposal about ‘De Orde Van De Nacht’, which he used at a slower tempo in his live DJ sets, and that he’d come up with an edit involving a Mary J Blige song – a secret weapon for shows kind of thing – that people had been loving and asking about. Immediately I fell in love with the edit – once all the necessary clearing and studio tweaking was done by me and my team, it felt good being able to put it out”.
Eelke Kleijn is putting his skills as a multi-instrumentalist and composer to good use with regular compositions for TV and film, his work scoring Hollywood blockbusters such as ‘Batman vs Superman’, ‘Rush’ and ‘This Means War’. This is when he’s not producing acclaimed albums or remixing the likes of John Legend, Pendulum, and Jennifer Lawrence.
