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.

Our fine friends at Mixmag have premiered a Maceo Plex remix of Royksopp’s “Sordid Affair.” How this track has existed on the internet for several days before I caught wind of it, I’ll never know. I’ll accept the failure and pray that Maceo Plex has the heart to forgive me.

The prolific deep house producer was just named #5 on Resident Advisor’s Top 100 DJs list and it’s apparent why. Maceo Plex’s rework of “Sordid Affair” is incredibly lush and what I imagine the angels in heaven are spinning on their turntables.

The addictive Röyksopp and Robyn electropop collabo “Do It Again” is taken from their “Do It Again” minialbum, which is due to be released on May 26th 2014.

“This 5 track mini-album is the accumulation and embodiment of the synergy between Robyn and ourselves. We’ve intended this to be a diverse yet cohesive and thought through musical venture; it’s meant to be an expression where pop & art reign side by side.” (Röyksopp)

“Svein and Torbjörn and I started working on new music in the beginning of 2013, I´ve been going back and forth to Bergen to record and write with the boys up until recently. Collaborating with S & T is something I enjoy very much. In the beginning we just knew we wanted to do something together and then it started to feel more like a band thing than songs for a Röyksopp or Robyn album so we´re releasing this music together as a band you could say.” (Robyn)

Menacing Swiss disco duo In Flagranti remixes the title track, they chop up the vocals from Robyn and roughens up the Röyksopp synths in order for the track to be better suited for those dark warehouse parties.
