Ten City – Be Free (Dimitri From Paris remix)
Label : DFP Vaults
‘Be free’ from Chicago’s legendary Ten City is the first new release from the group since 1994. Dimitri From Paris has naturally been a fan of Ten City from the very beginning. As with most of his work, Dimitri used all of the original production, respectively and intuitively adding a few extra touches for maximum dance-floor potential. His extended A-side remix is terrific: a hybrid jazz-funk/disco/boogie-soul gem that builds brilliantly via layered acapella and groove-focused sections before introducing the vocals and reaching for the lasers. Over on the flip, the French veteran delivers a ‘Dubstrumental’ take that brilliantly showcases different aspects of the track’s superb, organic instrumentation whilst keeping both eyes firmly on the dancefloor. A contemporary disco classic in waiting!

Label : Frappé
Parisian label Frappé has asked the great Art Of Tones to collaborate with the jazz / funk band Chatobaron, whose leader is Frank Chatona (from Cotonete). This is a highly special project for the label, coming from the heart of its founders Basile de Suresnes and Ten Fingerz, who have had the will to create this unique collaboration between the amazing House music producer Art Of Tones and top-quality studio musicians. Under the direction of the House Music artist, the band led by Frank Chatona have worked together on the tracks, which have been recorded during a very intense studio session in Paris. The result is a crystal-clear and warm sounding EP, which is a hybrid between the club sound and the jazz funk studio sound.

Marxist Love Disco Ensemble – MLDE
Label : Mr Bongo
Sounding simultaneously from the past, the present, and the future, the debut album ‘MLDE’ by Marxist Love Disco Ensemble seeks to eradicate both the trite from disco and the sobriety from political music. Half poetic, half tongue-in-cheek, this album is influenced by Eastern European and Mediterranean 70s disco records and blending boogie into the fold. Using instruments from saxophone, trumpet, harpsichord, guitar, and rare analogue synthesizers with subjects ranging from dialectical and historical materialism, class struggle, Marxist theory and praxis, as well as the concept of Marxist disco music.
