On October 28th, Musical Freedom will release two new remixes of Tiësto's summer smash "Take Me," featuring singer Kyler England, which initially appeared on the Club Life Vol. 3 – Stockholm compilation. "'Take Me' has been a huge track for me since the summer, so it's cool to hear another artist's interpretation of it," Tiësto told Rolling Stone – and now you can take a listen to one such reworking, courtesy of Michael Brun. 

Peek Inside the Life of Tiësto

Working with an already-certified pop club banger, Brun took Tiësto's jittery piano jam and shot it to the moon, turning "Take Me" into a spacey dancefloor opus that manages to jack-up the massive feel of the original. "I really like what Michael's done with his version," the Dutch DJ adds.

"I've always looked up to Tiësto as one of the legends in the industry so it was an honor to remix 'Take Me' and receive his seal of approval," Brun says. "I wanted my remix to to be groovy and sexy but still energetic, while also emphasizing the great vocals from Kyler England."

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
