UK based DJ and Producer Le Visiteur has become somewhat renowned for his funky grooves, penchant for throwback melodies, and love of disco. His most recent track, “Stand Up,” is no exception to any of these three characteristics. Borrowing the vocals to Loleatta Holloway’s 1976 dancefloor heater, “Dreamin’,” Le Visiteur has made a deep cut in his own right that builds on a minimal bassline reminiscent of 90s house, snares sharp enough to cut glass, and a crescendo that builds to a euphoric peak which makes your heart beat to the rhythm. And the fact that it weighs heavily on the sample of Ms. Holloway is genius: as she yells “stand up and tell everybody I got him,” you can’t help but feel like your soul is lifting up out of your body and into the spinning mirror balls overhead.

I’m a big believer that Nu Disco is slowly losing the huge popularity it had a few years back, especially as some of the producers who brought it back begin to move towards deep house and more garage sounds. HOWEVER, my man Jean Tonique keeps it real when it comes to disco house. His dance tracks ooze of funk, upbeat tempos and sensual soul. His remix of Kyogi’s “Not Good Enough” is a an Eddie Murphy movie for my ears…just so enjoyable. Take a listen!
Filtered vocals, synth lasers and an upbeat tempo make this an ideal french touch remix to a classic track. Coming out of Paris, Minami and Bruva do it right with this one and man do I mean it. This remix is super laid-back, imagine disco on the French Riviera…
