Product Description

Rarely does an artist pay homage to the classics like Dimitri From Paris. The Grammy nominated producer, remixer, composer and DJ has made every one in his repertoire of reworks sound effortless – no mean feat when the original tracks are by the likes of one of Disco’s greatest musicians. He has a long history of remixing classic records, starting in the late 80s and culminating in this achievement of a lifetime, Dimitri From Paris presents Le CHIC Remix.

This 10-track album features brand new remixes alongside all the much-loved essentials that have resonated with artists from Frankie Knuckles to Disclosure, Gilles Peterson to Mark Ronson. Alongside the reworks – three of which have never been released before – are instrumentals of each, most also previously unreleased, for the ultimate bumper pack - the album is an essential for seasoned Disco lovers! To create the project, Dimitri was entrusted to use the original studio masters from circa 1978 - 1980 that feature all of the individually recorded musical and vocal elements. The majority of these songs are for the first time given a respectful new mix and arrangement, unveiling never-before-heard performances, turning the spotlight on the beautiful orchestrations of one the most unique and highly-revered production duos of the Disco era and beyond; Nile Rodgers & Bernard Edwards, along with their CHIC organization of musicians.

Kicking off with the unmistakeable CHIC staple ‘Le Freak’, Dimitri’s timeless remix making the exquisite instrumental harmonies shine like only Dimitri can, the album delves next into ‘Lost In Music’ and a new mix of CHIC’s classic ‘I Want Your Love’. Norma Jean’s life-affirming ‘Saturday’, originally co-written by Nile Rodgers in 1978, is given a remix of cinematic proportions, no doubt set to become the climax of many Dimitri DJ sets to come. Sister Sledge’s ‘He’s The Greatest Dancer’, produced by Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards for the Disco power group, is given the Dimitri treatment with an extended mix, drawing out the string motifs, showcasing unheard sections from the original master tapes, sounding better than ever. Further exclusives include ‘Forbidden Lover’ and another Sister Sledge masterpiece, ‘Got To Love Somebody’ with cowbell and horns resplendent. More highlights include new mixes of Sister Sledge’s evergreen ‘Thinking Of You’ and the final track, an underdog from French chanson singer turned one-time Disco act, Sheila & B Devotion ‘Your Love Is Good’, a euphoric high to close on and another using many elements from never-heard-before outtakes.

Through Disco grooves and meticulously reverent production, Dimitri From Paris presents Le CHIC Remix gets to the heart of why CHIC’s music remains so universally relevant, underlining the enduring cultural significance of dance music in its most unabashed form. This album is a demonstration of how captivating the sound of a full orchestra of musicians can be, compared to today’s largely computer generated offerings – celebrating the eternally endearing qualities of some of Nile Rodger’s best-selling records, not to mention, for over 40 years, the unquestionable power of a great Disco record.
