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!!
Daft Punk – “Digital Love”
Treasure Fingers – “Cross the danceloor”
