Grammy-nominated DJ and producer Robin Schulz has remixed the Bob Marley classic “Sun Is Shining”. It’s out now via Island Records and you can check it out below.
A high-energy, club-focused version of “Sun Is Shining”, Schulz adds an infectious bassline and feelgood piano chords to the more downtempo original, delivering a dance track that’s been crafted with summer in mind. Originally released on Bob Marley & The Wailers’ 1971 album Soul Revolution, “Sun Is Shining” is one of Marley’s most critically acclaimed tracks.
Schulz says, “It is an absolute honour to be chosen to do this remix. Bob Marley is a true legend. It is a privilege and a highlight of my career to have the opportunity to add my individual note to this magnificent song. I am really looking forward to the release.”
Schulz burst onto the scene in 2014 with his remix of ‘Waves’ by Dutch hip-hop artist Mr Probz, which later received a Grammy nomination for ‘Best Remixed Recording’. He has since become one of the most recognisable electronic artists on the planet, collaborating with the likes of David Guetta, Cheat Codes and, most recently, Swedish singer-songwriter Winona Oak on May single “Oxygen”. Schulz has also made it into the coveted DJ Mag ‘Top 100’ list every year since 2015.
