In The Mix – Stop Thief Remix of Gecko by Becky Hill x Oliver Heldens

Gecko is the Becky Hill vocal masterpiece that is engineered by Oliver Heldens to make is a modern club classic.  To attempt to remix one of the hottest club tracks of recent years takes some guts.  Guts is obviously something that Boston duo Stop Thief don’t lack.

They have stripped back the heavy house of the original version of Gecko and put their own unique slant on it (an even bigger risk).  They layer a trap undertone and expertly chop the vocals and add electronic sounds galore.  Whilst it is difficult to make anything as hot as the original, they have managed to complement it and in turn create a brilliant remix.  This is not the last we have heard of Stop Thief by any means.
