A stone cold classic can be defined as a song that continues to reverberate for years after it first creates an impact on an audience, the charts or even benchmarks a pivotal time in history. Quench is one such tune granted legendary status by the size of the indelible mark it first created, the legions of legendary DJ’s and supporters it has garnered and the instant identification it holds with it’s bell tone hook and tearing synth riff.
It’s with great pleasure we welcome back “Dreams” by Quench which is globally recognised as one of clublands most enduring anthems (first released in 1992 and now, nearly 20 years on it’s ready to hit a new audience). With three massive NEW remixes added to the package, plus UMEK’s superb reworking that continues to inspire DJ’s globally R30; Get ready to RAVE once again!

Not only do they consistently deliver new music, but also find time to revisit a carefully curated selection of quality tunes from yesteryear that still ignite any crowd.
This release includes a mix of international talent with a well handled vision on reworking a classic. After kicking off 2021 as a certified powerhouse in the scene, Trance sensation MaRLo (starting the new year with a string of sold out shows in his home country, Australia) steps onto Remix duty. MaRLo invokes the spirit of the original, reinterpreting this with a tough as nails, driving mix. Followed by Paul Sawyer landing a residency on BBC Radio One, the UK DJ and Producer drops his almighty remix. Taking the original elements and weaving them into a building Tech-meets-Progressive mix that keeps all the hooks and of course those key moments that made the original such a massive record.
Next, rolling in with Melbourne duo The Journey applying their formidable touch with a moody, Prog styled vibe, complete with the original’s prominent hooks… the bells… the vocal… and of course, the almighty synth! Joined by main man CJ Dolan, the original producer, here he reworks this monster into a standout track that once again stands out in any set. UMEK’s mix needs no introduction as a certified monster of a tune, heavily supported by all the main players and will circulate for some time ahead.Tight and punchy with an unmistakable energy it’s ready to set clubland alight once again.
Dreams is firmly positioned as a pivotal clubbing moment for those new to the track, and a welcome reminder to the original crowd that it was one of the most dominant and powerful tracks in Rave history.
