Eli & Fur are a melodic house/techno duo known for their music on labels such as Anjunadeep.
Betoko’s 2012 smash hit Raining Again is presented to a new generation of clubbers with a fresh remix by Eli & Fur.
Internationally recognised as one of the biggest dance music anthems of the last fifteen years, March 2023 saw Berlin-based record label Embassy One launch a pioneering collaboration with music NFT marketplace twelve x twelve to drop a series of high profile remixes, inviting some of electronic music’s biggest artists to reimagine the iconic hit record.
Having inaugurated the series with a string of remixes from Roger Sanchez, Sharam Jey & Bakka and Betoko himself, the Berlin-based collaborators now announce the worldwide release of the fourth and final remix, courtesy of British DJ and producer duo, Eli & Fur. Released as an exclusive digital vinyl/music NFT with twelve x twelve on June 6, the highly sought-after cut now sees its official release on all streaming platforms via Embassy One.
Standing as one of the most exciting newcomer acts of the past decade, Eli & Fur deliver on creative artistry and technical prowess with a tasteful new interpretation, guiding the original into laidback, contemporary waters. Pivoting stylistically from Betoko’s 2012-counterpart, the famed duo welcomes us into a deeply alluring soundscape that champions organic percussion, emotive basslines and decorative, twinkling synths. The combination of elements nods to influences of world-music and ambient tones, giving listeners a completely new perspective through which to experience the track’s staple vocal line.
Originally released in 2012, Betoko’s legendary dance anthem – Raining Again – was labelled ‘Track of The Summer’ during its initial unveiling, and has since amassed over 13 million streams on Spotify alone and over 100 million hits worldwide across all platforms. A record that has no doubt stood the test of time, Embassy One’s initiative has sought to revive its global impact, whilst opening it up to a modern audience through a carefully curated band of remixers.
