Re-making the classic from The Mamas & The Papas, Freischwimmer delivers a beautiful new rendition with luscious melodies and a modern beat. Re-live the old days and dream of sunny California!

"California Dreamin'" is a song written by John Phillips and Michelle Phillips and was first recorded by Barry McGuire. However, the best known version is by The Mamas & the Papas, who sang backup on the original version and released as a single in 1965. The song is #89 in Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. The lyrics of the song express the narrator's longing for the warmth of Los Angeles during a cold winter in New York City.

The song became a signpost of the California Myth and the arrival of the nascent counterculture era.

"California Dreamin' " was certified as a Gold Record (single) by the RIAA in June 1966 and was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2001.

A tropical house version by German DJ/remixer Freischwimmer was released in 2015. This version reached number one on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart in its February 13, 2016 issue. It should be noted that "Dreamin" had never before hit No. 1 on any ranking, thus making this version the first in its nearly 50 year history to reach the top spot on a Billboard chart.
