Gizelle Smith – Dust
(Dimitri From Paris Vs. Cotonete Remix)
Every now and again we get a remix come through our doors that blows us away and brings that little something extra special to our ears above and beyond the ordinary…
This is one of those times.
Following on from the runaway success of their collaboration on the super cool ‘Paribbean Disco’ release, the dance music legend – Dimitri From Paris and the sublime jazz, funk outfit Cotonete have reunited to produce a timeless disco remix. Gizelle Smith’s single – ‘Dust’ was the explosive opener from her latest album ‘Ruthless Day’. Boasting an energetic and memorable vocal hook over the funkiest of backdrops from her band. Critics and press lauded the track as a standout on an album that has won support from some high profile names including Afropunk, CLASH Magazine, Blues & Soul, Wax Poetics and EARMILK to name a few.
The Parisian dream team have taken this diamond and really made it shine – transforming the track into a disco roller that already sounds like a classic. The Cotonete orchestra provide not just an infectious groove but also a level of nuance that is rare in modern day dance productions and all the while Dimitri oversees proceedings with a tasteful arrangement and a mix that rivals those of Larry Levan and the disco mixing greats.
Included in this release package is a full ‘Discomix’ in all its glory, a more radio friendly ‘Remix’ version as well as a ‘Dubstrumental’ version so you can experience this piece of brilliance in the fashion most appropriate for the occasion…
‘Dust (Dimitri From Paris Vs. Cotonete Remix)’ will be available on 12” vinyl and digital download on 13rd April 2018 at all good stores.
