Le Visiteur’s Biggest Disco and House Movers of 2022


I’m sure you will all agree that it has been a pretty bizarre and difficult year from the Omicron shutdowns and the Russian invasion of Ukraine to the UK economy literally falling apart at the seams. Thanks Brexit. For DJ’s gigs are harder to come by as clubs and bars close their doors or open less nights and the vinyl market whilst buoyant has seen huge delays and the prices go through the roof as major labels press a gazillion copies of artist albums that will be worth 2p in a couple of years, thanks Adele and Taylor Swift. Equally equipment has been almost impossible to source thanks to a worldwide chip shortage and again in the UK, thanks Brexit.

Thankfully though the producers, promoters and record labels of our scene have kept working and in many cases doubled down working their ass*s off to bring us some well needed joy. I just want to say thank you to everyone who has been involved in pushing things forwards and keeping positive because life is way too short to listen to negativity.

Today’s end of year list picks 9 of the biggest disco and house movers of 2022 from artists who have massively upped their game to labels who have taken huge steps forward and one very well needed event which had a fantastic launch. These are people who have all put in a mammoth shift in 2022 and deserve to be celebrated for their work and music and general ‘I won’t be defeated’ attitude.

Our selection is in alphabetical order only, all of these great producers and brands deserve love so make sure you check them all.

If you are feeling these selections please do us a favour and give this feature a share wherever you can and help us spread the love. It makes a huge difference to us here at Le Visiteur x

Delfonic EOY 2022


German Disco wizard Delfonic has been bubbling around for a few years but 2022 was a real stand out year for him. From his Nomada Edits EP way back in February, which featured in our remixes of the year list here, through his releases for Nightshift, his ace Illegal Jazz series with Kapote, his brilliant remix of Martin Georgi, again on Nomada, and his work with Too Slow To Disco he’s delivered again and again.

Perhaps what really shone through from us in 2022 though, was that this is a hugely skilled DJ who has endless knowledge and enthusiasm for his craft.

Make sure you check his brilliant Disco 1977 mix that he recorded for us earlier in the year below.

Marina Trench EOY 2022

Marina Trench

French artist Marina Trench really feels like an artist on the cusp of something great.

Whilst not as prolific as some of the artists out there, Marina is all about the quality and her every release feels like it has her heart and soul poured into it.

Having previously released with Heist and Wolf, her recent Imperméable en été Ep on her own Sweet State label was quite brilliant and saw another boom in her reputation as one of the most exciting underground producers on the scene.

This well deserved hype has also led to her DJ diary filling up with packed shows all over including a notable show at this years ADE.

Young Pulse

If I had to pick one person on this list who just exudes the absolute blissful joy that disco brings to the world in 2022 then it’s French producer Young Pulse whose passion from both unearthing incredible disco, boogie and house music and creating the best party atmosphere at his gigs simply shines through everything he does.

Already well known for his disco edits and remixes Young Pulse this year hit big with his cover of Ultra Nate’s Free featuring Natalie Nova which saw huge support all over the globe. His work with collective French Funky League is also gathering a cult following.

This year also saw him join the Defected / Glitterbox broadcasting team and he continues to build a fantastic following for his streams as well as his gigs and releases.
