Dorsh – “Je t’aime”

‘Je t’aime’ is the first single off my debut album Neopolitan which is slated to be released on Tuesday May 1, 2012. This record in particular was born from the inspiration of Serge Gainsbourg et Jane Birkin’s 1969, #1 UK hit single, “Je t’aime (moi non plus)”. I figured with today being Valentines day, a day that embodies the significance, meaning, and understanding of love, it was only appropriate to share. Please, fulljoy the message and the wonderful emotions that ‘true love’ arouse. Bless up!

Verse:
Love,
you betrayed me
but showed me life, you’re
so amazing, I

See I don’t
know what to do
member I’ll
always love you

If we take a while
and sort it out, baby
I know we’ll find the truth

Chorus (x2):
See I wanna love you
til’ our ending days

and I wanna kiss you
til’ our lips break

They have produced remixes for Jamiroquai, Janet Jackson, Usher, No Angels, Mya, Deluxe, Steve Lawler and many more. I have been a big fan of this record for many years, and just decided to share it today! We’ve been in a very ‘disco’ mood this week, so I hope you enjoy this selection. Bless up!

Daft Punk x Treasure Fingers – “Digital dancefloor (Dorsh remix)”

DJ Sun once told me that certain songs are married in the musical realm, meaning, when they speak to each other, it’s apparent that they share something special. Sometimes people tell you things that stick with you for a lifetime, simply because you know it’s true. I have spent the last couple months writing and recording Neopolitan, which hasn’t left me much time for spinning. However, last week my good friend Gerald invited me over for a session, and something beautiful happened. I took a hardrive with 150 songs (electro/disco) and “Digital love”/”Cross the dancefloor” were the first two tracks he picked from my playlist. I am a firm believer in there being ‘no such thing as coincidence,’ because when I heard the two songs speak to each other, I immediately pulled upon the aforementioned proverb.

I came home that night and started working tirelessly on chopping up the songs so that they could tell a story. The arrangement, the bass line, and the groove all came together in the end to create a smooth late 70’s disco sound. I have done dozens of remixes, but never an all out mash-up. It’s a new year, and I have decided to push my mind to new limits. I originally wanted to call the track “Digital love on the dancefloor,” but for conversation and length purposes, I kept it simple. I plan to release a slew of these before Neopolitan rises in April. Fulljoy the record, bless up!!

Originals:

Daft Punk – “Digital Love”
