“Way back in the warehouse days of glory, we used to party to the break of dawn..”
Happy Days is Pirate Jams’ unashamed love letter to the cult rave era of the early 90s – a genre defining time for electronic music. No other time has left such a lasting imprint on a whole generation of artists and their music.
Justin Harris (Freaks/Hot Creation) turns in a stripped back 4/4 remix which oozes warehouse vibes. While Howla (Ghetto Funk) takes the original down to the mid tempo range and adds his own unique style of heavy synths and grinding bass.
Hailing from Russia, the infamous production duo Zeskullz stomps out gangsta beats that'll haunt you in your sleep! Having built their name off the backs of established labels like Dim Mak, Circuit Freq and We Are Live the duo has been bombing the bass with the best of them.
