Matt Sassari, Matthew Dear – ‘Our Lovely City (Hands Up ForDetroit)’

Listen here

2006: Cr2 Records have their first Number One record after label founder Mark Brown receives a white
label of a new track from an unknown artist based in the Netherlands. Playing it out at Space Ibiza that
summer, the reaction to the record was huge, selling over one million physical copies and reaching #1 on
the UK singles chart. Put Your Hands Up For Detroit – based around a little-known sample from legendary. DJ/Producer and Ghostly International head Matthew Dear became an instant club classic.


Fast Forward to 2024: As Cr2 Records celebrates its 20th anniversary, Mark Brown reaches out to
multi-platinum-selling producer Matt Sassari and Matthew Dear with an idea: to rework Hands Up For
Detroit fresh for the label’s second decade. With Matthew giving his blessing for the use of the original
sample, Matt & Matthew got to work on a kickin’ new version that, whether you’re in Detroit, Ibiza, Berlin
or London, Hands Up For Detroit is bound to raise the roof and become a global phenomenon once
again.


‘Our Lovely City (Hands Up For Detroit)’ is set for release on 22nd March via Cr2 Records.
