Faithless have announced one night in Glasgow’s SSE Hydro Arena this November, celebrating their 20 year anniversary!
To tie into the release of forthcoming 20th anniversary remix compilation ‘Faithless 2.0’, legendary dance act Faithless have announced they are to play The SSE Hydro on the 25th of November 2015.
Best known for their dance songs ‘Insomnia’, ‘God Is a DJ’ and ‘We Come 1′, Faithless have recorded six albums and sold over 12 million records worldwide. And the year 2015 marks the 20-year milestone in Faithless’ illustrious career and to celebrate the band have curated a special remix album, ‘Faithless 2.0.’
Calling on the great and the good of electronic music (those they’ve both inspired and been inspired by along the way) to remix their catalogue, Faithless have enlisted; Avicii, Tiesto, Flux Pavilion, Above and Beyond, Booka Shade, Claptone, High Contrast, Eric Prydz, Purple Disco Machine and Armin Van Buuren to provide their own takes on classic Faithless material.
Stand out tracks include Avicii’s take on the legendary ‘Insomnia’, Tiesto’s storming rework of ‘God is a DJ’, as well as some all-new music from Faithless themselves, which is set to both convert the young and excite the faithful through the summer and beyond.
Alongside some of the biggest names in contemporary dance music, the band have also ensured the album serves as a platform to showcase new and emerging talent too, with the likes of Disciples, Until The Ribbon Breaks and Autograf all featured names on the compilation.
An artistic retrospective and testament to one of the most influential bands of a generation and as revered today as when their journey began two decades ago, ‘Faithless 2.0’ will be released in October 2015.
Their influence, from being at the top of the dance music game for a decade and a half is easy to spot these days; listen to some of Calvin Harris’ no. 1’s or the countless tracks with a house groove, riff and rapper. But although Faithless’ signature sound has been adopted by many, it has most definitely been bettered by none.
The full Faithless live experience will be exploding on stages around the UK throughout this winter.
