‘I Like To Move It’, ‘Go On Move’ and ‘Can You Feel It’ had already established Erick Morillo and The Mad Stuntman as one of the biggest new acts in 1994 – and then came ‘Raise Your Hands’. Originally starting life as‘Asuca’ by R.A.W. (another Morillo alias on the legendary Strictly Rhythm label), the addition of The Mad Stuntman’s unmistakable vocals helped give them their 4th top 15 hit of the year.

The update comes courtesy of UK producer Shadow Child, no stranger to chart success himself.

“I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one,” added Shadow Child, who also debuts his Acidub edit as part of the record’s release. “That infectious riff has been going round in my head since I originally heard it and it is such a honour to get to make 2 versions!” 

Having sound-tracked an array of nights over the last 25 years, the Shadow Child edit follows Positiva’s recent panel at International Music Summit, where Jason Ellis, A&R director of the label, spoke to the gathered crowd atIbiza’s Hard Rock Hotel about the label’s history & success.

To celebrate 25 years since its inception, the label will spend 2018 showcasing their back-catalogue with a series of one-off parties and special releases from both the present day and yesteryear with Positiva also hosting a virtual exhibition, giving fans the opportunity to delve deeper into the rich history of the label via the Shazam code below.

Shadow Child’s 2018 update is available from Friday 22nd June!
