Let’s immerse ourselves in the sensational world of Freemasons, the venerated architects behind some of the most iconic House tracks we know today. Their musical ingenuity became evident with the release of their 2007 album “Shakedown,” which they followed with the equally captivating “Shakedown II.” If you think the Freemasons are only about remixes, think again; their portfolio houses unreleased jewels that hint at their broader musical agenda.
My own passion for club music was reignited by the Freemasons, a force that restored my faith after I heard “Mesmerized” by Faith Evans at a local bar. Truly, they are the reason this blog exists, and the creative geniuses who reinvigorated a sense of musical wonder in so many like myself.
But enough about me—let’s talk about their career milestones. Their expansive repertoire ranges from the invigorating “Pjanoo” by Eric Prydz to the emotionally stirring “In My Mind” by Heather Headley. If you’re in the mood for something electrifying, you can’t go wrong with their outstanding remix of Beyonce’s “Deja Vu” or “Heartbreak (Make Me A Dancer) by Sophie Ellis-Bextor.”
Freemasons’ artistry transcends mere remixing. Their masterful integration of vocals and instrumentation has turned original tracks into anthems. They have given their signature touch to chart-busting numbers like “Watchin’ with Amanda Wilson” and even breathed life into classics like “Here Comes The Rain Again” by Eurythmics whose lead singer Annie Lennox graces our Diva Hall of Fame.
Beyond remixes, they’ve also collaborated with other prominent musicians, bringing a unique twist to each partnership. For example, their work on Disco classic “Love Sensation ’06” by Loleatta Holloway showcases their ability to blend their contemporary style with classic dance rhythms.
In summation, Freemasons have sculpted a monumental space for themselves in the realm of House music. They’re not just remixers; they are bona fide musical maestros whose work transcends genres and eras, serving as both an inspiration and a standard for aspiring musicians.
For those who are eagerly waiting, be prepared for more exhilarating mixes that capture the spirit of Gay Pride from our various releases this season. Let’s celebrate life, love, and dance music at all the pride events happening around the globe. I’m certain Freemasons will be headlining one of them.
Until the next time…ENJOY!
