+ MERCER REMIX – OUT NOW – LISTEN HERE

French Disco pioneer CERRONE today unveils a spaced-out new remix by two of his most prodigal sons: LINDSTRØM & PRINS THOMAS.
Torch bearers for the disco genre in the modern era and undoubted acolytes of Cerrone’s teachings, the Scandinavian dance pairing have teamed up for this ambitious re-working of his latest single: ‘The Impact’.
Rumbling over the 10-minute mark in a cascade of loping galactic grooves and laser-beam sonics, Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas’ cosmic re-working is epic in proportion and a fitting homage to the space-inspired disco records of the 70s, of which Cerrone forged the template.
Lindstrøm & Prins’ remix also follows the recently unveiled Neo-Disco Remix by Mercer, which saw the celebrated DJ & producer skilfully infuse Cerrone’s revitalized disco sound with his own EDM-inspired production. A self-professed fan of Cerrone and fellow Frenchman, Mercer spoke of his honour at being invited to put his spin on ‘The Impact’:
“I receive a lot of remix requests but was truly honoured when I received one from Cerrone himself. I used to listen to his albums a lot when I was younger, he’s brought so much to disco and I have a tremendous amount of respect for him and his work. His single “The Impact” is very spatial and cosmic, I liked the vibe and particularly these Supernature-inspired arpeggios. I wanted to give it something more punchy made for clubs.” 
 
Relaying a message about climate change-awareness, ‘The Impact’ also sees Cerrone sample a speech from world-famous anthropologist Jane Goodall. While the musical formula is played-with in both remixes, the stark warning of her immortal words to humanity is respectfully undiluted and remains evocatively poignant in each.

‘The Impact’ is the first single to be taken from Cerrone’s upcoming album ‘DNA’. Set for release early-on in 2020, the new album arrives as his first studio release since 2016’s ‘Red Lips’. Handling all of the production for ‘DNA’ entirely himself, the new record definitively marks a return to Cerrone’s roots in disco music. Speaking about the upcoming album Cerrone says:
“These past five years, I have developed a new form of performance through DJing, playing mostly my own repertoire. This has allowed me to revisit my catalogue and inspired the making of this album, an exploration of my musical DNA through my experience as a DJ.” 
Widely considered one of the most influential artists of the original disco-era, Cerrone can is considered one of dance music’s earliest pioneers and purveyors. Inspiring countless other artists in recent decades, Cerrone lays claim to being the most sampled French artist in the history of music with his innovative floor-fillers opening the doors to the French Touch movement. With the likes of Daft Punk, Bob Sinclar (who sold 1 million copies of his Cerrone by Bob Sinclair album) and even Massive Attack citing Cerrone’s work as an influence, it is perhaps of little surprise artists and producers are still queuing up to share in his spellbinding creations.
