If you haven’t spent the last few years jet-setting to the hottest megaclubs and exclusive star-studded soirées across the globe, chances are you may not have heard of DJ Politik. His latest rework of Poppy and Diplo’s retrofuturistic “Time Is Up” is a high-energy, midtempo, moombah inspired dancefloor pleaser, with hints of brass & trap percussion that seem to crossover into all of his productions.

After the success of his recently released album “Invisible”, much acclaimed German house DJ/producer Sharam Jey is set to release the second instalment of the album’s stellar remix package, “Invisible – The Remix Album (Part 2)”, via Bunny Tiger Records on December 10th (Part 1 of the remix package dropped about two weeks ago)

The full 22 track remix album (Part 1 and Part 2) follows the original LP (released back in September) which saw him deliver 14 synth laced tracks that drew inspiration from the likes of Giorgio Moroder, Röyksopp, Daft Punk and Depeche Mode with guest vocal contributions from Little Boots, Dirty Vegas, KLP, Kat, Dacia Bridges and Ashibah.

The second remix package includes reworks by the likes of likes of Kolombo and Mason, we here at Discobelle can premiere the remix from UK based producer Vanilla Ace which makes sure to transform the track “Planet Love” into a steadfast, deep house groover that will make wonders on dancefloors.

All in all, the new remix album complements the original LP perfectly and serves up an intriguing variety of dancefloor ready tracks by a handpicked array of international talents.

NYC based singer and boogie chanteuse Amy Douglas (1/2 of Peach Melba and collaborator on so many amazing tracks) makes her official DFA Records debut with her brand new single “Never Saw It Coming” (co-written and produced by fellow New Yorker Tim Wagner of 33Hz/Dither Down Records fame, with two remixes coming from UK based artist Crooked Man).

Amy’s fantastic and powerful voice is at the absolute centre of the track, adding a sense of drama to a track that can best be described as “steady mechanical funk” that meets a disco house groove. The two remixes on the single from Crooked Man lets the track grow and build slowly with lush arrangements, while his hypnotic sounding dub version plays up the woozy bassline and lets Amy’s vocals echo out into the ether.

Five years ago saw the release of ‘Chill Pad Deluxe’ by Good People, the alias of wildly popular Canadian duo Majid Jordan. London producer ZENDR, who recently released his original single ‘Skin Deep,’ has now reimagined its soulful vibe. Grab the free download here.
