Copenhagen-based producer Kasper Bjørke just dropped a strong remix package of his “Nothing Gold Can Stay” (Part A) EP, with a carefully selected and diverse list of producers. The EP features reworks by the likes of Tensnake (already featured here) Each Other, the project of New Yorkers Justin Strauss and Max Pask, Marcello Giordani, Bostro Pesopeo, and an ambient version of the title track by Kasper Bjørke himself. Here, we have for you a stellar seven-minute remix of “Du Du Du”, featuring Tomas Høffding of WhoMadeWho, by Italian maestro Marcello Giordani, one half of Marvin & Guy.

Speaking about Marcello Giordani’s remix, Kasper Bjørke says: “I had to have Marcello do a version of ‘Du Du Du’ which already has a very distinct 80ies feeling – but I knew that Marcello could enhance that vibe by his musical sense of classic Italian Disco – and I think he made the perfect version, with playful arpeggios and wonderful synth stabs complimenting the Danish vocals by Høffding in a really perfect way! The remix is a brilliant dance floor starter and I have already experienced it do its magic many times!”

The “Nothing Gold Can Stay” Remixes (Part A) is out now via hfn music. Get it here.

[Premiere] Marcello Giordani: “Non Me Lo So Spiegare”

June 26th, 2019

Words: Elice

Well summer is here and the temperature is already high. But it gets higher with Marcello Giordani’s new EP “Riflessi” for MM Discos label. Marcello Giordani is what we call the epitome of Italo Disco music. He is a DJ, a producer, a fanatic collector of rare Italo-Disco vinyl and the founder of the disco-flavored and really successful “Italo Deviance” blog, through which he has been exploring the disco movement in Europe. He’s also known as one half of our beloved Marvin & Guy. The three-track “Riflessi” EP is the result of all his journeys and influences he’s had all these years.

Today, we’re delightes to premiere the record’s A-side cut, “Non Me Lo So Spiegare”. The track is a rhythmic ride to early 80’s disco space sounds that do feel so fresh and mind-blowing! Since we are dealing with the best Italo Disco vibes, vocoders play an important role both in the track and the EP. Classic melodic synthesizers and arpeggiators of that era are being reincarnated in an electro-boogie dancefloor tune. Fill it up!

The “Riflessi” 12’’ arrives on June 30th via MM Discos. Pre-order it here.
