In a daring move worthy of praise from Mr. James Bond himself, Kingston based artist/producer Dorsh successfully translates the orchestral prowess of Adele’s new 007 Skyfall theme song into beautiful dance intelligence. While the original track paints a gorgeous silhouette of mystery and eloquence, Dorsh reinvigorates Adele’s voice with his signature soulful style.
Dorsh recently completed a Multi-City European Tour including a stop at the world renowned London night club, Fabric. He has already received praise from several industry heavy hitters including, King Britt, Mick Boogie, and London’s very own LTJ Bukem.
This remix is a true testament to the “Jaminglican’s” versatility as a producer, engineer, and overall master of sound. Even though Skyfall may signal the end for one historic character, this track is only the beginning for Dorsh.
Moon Boots entered the world in the mid-1980s via Cape Canaveral. After years of service as the preferred footwear of celebrity astronauts (notably Tom Hanks), Moon Boots came to life during a classified experiment aboard the International Space Station. Little is known of what actually transpired aboard the shuttle, but in short, Moon Boots became a sentient creature, equipped with reason, intuition, and groove. Before long, he grew tired of working for the space-military-industrial complex and found solace in the soothing sounds of underground disco and R&B boogie records. He knew it was only of matter of time before he was hung up like so many boots before him. He abandoned the program and used his savings to build a music-production studio in an unnamed U.S. location, where he is currently working. Fulljoy this wonderful remix of a classic Wayne Wonder, bless up!
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!!
