SOPHIE ELLIS-BEXTOR AND DAVID GUETTA "murder in the dancefloor"

Sophie Ellis-Bextor and David Guetta Unleash Explosive Remix for “Murder On The Dancefloor”

Sophie Ellis-Bextor has enlisted the prowess of EDM maestro David Guetta to remix her iconic single, “Murder on the Dancefloor.” The result? A pulsating transformation that injects new life into the chart-topping anthem.

The revamped version introduces rave-inspired synths, propelling the song with an immediate burst of energy. The synths play a tantalizing game of hide-and-seek, accompanied by wailing sirens, giving the track an unexpected edge. It’s a sonic journey that elevates the original, inviting listeners to experience the familiar hit in an entirely new light.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor, an English singer and songwriter, is gearing up for her first-ever North American headlining tour, kicking off on May 30 in San Francisco. As she takes her electrifying performance stateside, fans can expect a night filled with pulsating beats, captivating vocals, and, of course, the reimagined “Murder on the Dancefloor.”

Earlier this year, the pop sensation witnessed a global resurgence of “Murder on the Dancefloor,” achieving remarkable chart success. The track soared to No. 2 on the Official UK Singles Chart, matching its peak position from 22 years ago. On the Billboard Hot 100, the song climbed a staggering 40 spots, marking a significant milestone in Sophie’s career.

The catalyst for this revival? A prominent feature in the final scene of Emerald Fennell’s film, Saltburn. The track not only became a viral sensation but also found a new audience on Instagram and TikTok, where it became the soundtrack for millions of videos.

The David Guetta remix follows Sophie’s earlier release, a seven-track digital EP unveiled in January. The EP included the original B-side “Never Let Me Down” and a series of remixes of “Murder on the Dancefloor.” These remixes, overseen by the likes of Jewels & Stone, Danny D, and the Twin Club Murder mix, were originally released in 2001 but made their streaming debut this year.

As Sophie Ellis-Bextor continues to captivate audiences with her timeless hits, the collaboration with David Guetta adds another layer to her musical narrative. Brace yourselves for a dancefloor extravaganza as Sophie takes center stage on her North American tour, offering fans a taste of her enduring charm and the revamped sounds of “Murder on the Dancefloor.”
