Dimitri From Paris & DJ Rocca: The Edit Battle (Maxi)

Gomma-166-3

Having just released the “Erodiscotique EP 2″, Dimitri From Paris and his buddy DJ Rocca come back with the second strike: “The Edit Battle”.

They asked some friends to make freestyle edits of their songs. Domenico Torti, Funkafilia, The BladeRunners, and Latin Raz Kaz reworked the track “A Reason For Living” from the first EP “I Love New York” and created some completely new versions. Functionable, funky and fucked up. If you remember Domenico Torti’s well-known edit for Daft Punk’s “Voyager” a few years back, you can imagine what expects you here.

This is a free download for all buyers of the new 12″ “Erodiscotique EP 2″, available now in record stores and digitally on Beatport. Or for sale as a separate digital release.

Gomma162-artwork

Cat#: Gomma 162
Release: 18 November 2011

Dimitri From Paris and DJ Rocca are back! French house legend Dimitri From Paris comes with the second EP on Gomma. And he is on the roll. His last release had amazing feedback and has put him back on the dance map. Getting full support by everybody from Soul Clap and DJ T to Glimmers and even Erol – the first Erodiscotique EP “I Love New York” was a hit. No wonder it reached No 1 on Juno in the UK. Now the second EP is ready. And be sure: this is a bomb too.

Basically it’s early 90ies hip house and electroboogie with a big disco vibe. Including a cover of The Pet Shop Boys’ “Domino Dancing” (feat. Tim Benton) and the dancefloor burner Ero Disco Theme.. we are glad to have the boys on our label.

Digital release today, 12″ vinyl is available on Monday and includes a download card for the release plus an exclusive download of the EP “A Reason For Living (The Edit Battle)”, including edits by Domenico Torti, Funkafilia, The BladeRunners, and Latin Raz Kaz.

Dimitri from Paris & DJ Rocca pres. Erodiscotique: A Reason For Living (video)

Keep it street….. Dimitri from Paris is on the roll and his buddy DJ Rocca from Italy is rolling with him. The great, very 80ies song featuring Fred Ventura is part of their new E.P. on Gomma. Yes! The real Ventura – the old Italo Euro Trash Crooner legend from the 80ies. To illustrate the song we cut a few old breakdance and NY films that you might now..:). Enjoy!
