Bee Gees – More Than A Woman (SG Lewis Paradise Edit)
Universal Music

More Than A Woman, written by the prolific team of Barry, Maurice, and Robin Gibb, was one of the five original Bee Gees songs on 1977’s record-breaking and chart-smashing Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. The song also became a major hit as a cover, also featured on the soundtrack, by soul brothers Tavares. London-based singer, producer, and songwriter SG Lewis steps up with his new ‘Paradise Edit’ remix of this dancefloor staple conjuring up dreams of the post-pandemic dance floor that are within touching distance now. Let’s hope this is the soundtrack to a few of them as we come together to dance again.

Belcampo feat Elisabeth Troy – Your Kissing
Freerange Records

Every now and then a release comes along which is destined to unite, bring down the walls and basically, be a force for good. Your Kissing by Belcampo does just that. Legendary British singer and songwriter Elisabeth Troy provides the cherry on top with her sweet vocal line giving us the hook which will get under your skin in all the right ways. Melding together elements of deep house, disco and the French Touch sound to form a track which will appeal to anyone who simply likes decent music. Belcampo keeps things stripped back just enough to give that beautiful, rolling, hypnotic atmosphere, calling to mind the glory days of Cassius, Motorbass and Super Discount with that distinctive feel-good French sound of the 90’s.
