Utrechtse DJ promoot nieuwe single met flyeractie

De Utrechtse DJ en musziek producer Jonathan Joosten heeft middels een flyeractie op Utrecht CS een nieuwe release op zijn eigen label onder de aandacht gebracht. Het gaat om de eerste single van Remix The Remix, getiteld Diamond In The Night.

Flyers-Remix-the-Remix

Joosten, voorheen vaste DJ in Utrechtse clubs als Filemon & Baucis, Havana en Kosten Koper, legt uit: “Een goed liedje op zich is niet meer genoeg. Er komen dagelijks 40.000 nieuwe liedjes uit op Spotify. Slechts een heel klein deel daarvan komt uiteindelijk boven drijven. Om de kans daarbij te horen te vergroten moet je opvallen. Dat is prima, want daardoor moet je creatief worden. Flyeren is op zich niet heel origineel, maar flyeren voor een nieuwe muziekrelease heb ik nog niet eerder gezien. Vandaar dat het het proberen waard is.”

Naast de flyeractie op Utrecht CS, worden de flyers ook uitgedeeld aan barpersoneel in de Utrechtse horeca met het verzoek om de nieuwe single toe te voegen aan de playlist voor achtergrondmuziek. De reacties hierop zijn zeer positief.

De flyer in kwestie heeft het formaat van een visitekaartje en is dubbelzijdig bedrukt. Op de ene kant wordt de single in het Nederlands aangekondigd, op de andere zijde in het Engels. De strekking: De eerste single van Remix The Remix is zojuist verschenen op Spotify, Apple Music en andere streaming diensten. Check de track en als je hem leuk vindt, voeg hem dan toe aan je playlist en deel hem met je vrienden.

Radio Stad Den Haag was a very popular pirate radio station in the ’80s. The station was connected with several import record shops in The Hague. Due to that its DJs played the newest dance music. The station also played a lot of Italo Disco music, as The Hague – at that time – could be seen as the Italo Disco capital of The Netherlands.

Since many of Joe Nathan’s productions are based on old Italo Disco or ’80s dance music records, it’s no surprise still has a soft spot for Radio Stad Den Haag. While the station currently still plays mostly the music from their heydays in the ’80s, they’re open to new music as well. Hence why Joe Nathan played a lot of new material, based on classic hits, in his DJ-set.

In a previous live mix on the same station on November 3rd, 2019, Joe Nathan played mostly Nu-Disco and Jackin House, as well as a few of his own productions. No video recording was made at the time, but the audio can be found below.

New release: Remix The Remix – Diamond In The Night (feat. Bowman)

The newest artist releasing music on UniGroove is Remix The Remix. The first single by Remix The Remix is called Diamond In The Night and is produced by Jonathan Joosten a.k.a. Joe Nathan. The vocals are sung by American singer Bowman.

Diamond In The Night is a tribute to Italian singer Felli, who recorded the song originally in 1983. The new version has a completely different arrangement, but in essence, it’s still the same song.

New Tha Bomb single “Dolce vita” coming soon

Utrecht-based Tha Bomb is about to release a new single on Joe Nathan’s UniGroove label. The track is called “Dolce vita” and will be released by the end of August.

 

Dolce Vita is a modern interpretation of Ryan Paris’ mega summer hit from 1983. For this remake Tha Bomb focused on the musical key elements of the song, such as the catchy bassline and the plucky synth sounds. All the elements used appear in the first 30 seconds of the original and Tha Bomb rearranged these into a sunny hands-in-the-air EDM banger, perfect for the upcoming summer.

When asked ‘Why a remake of Docle vita?’ Tha Bomb responded, “That’s actually a funny story. I was inspired by another track that gave me the idea to do ‘Dolce vita’ in a similar style. I let the idea rest for a while and then a friend suggested to visit a classics party where Ryan Paris, the original singer of the song, would perform. I figured it would be nice to have him listen to this new version, especially since I knew that it would be so different from the original. So I started working on it and the next morning the track was done. That same evening I let Ryan Paris listen to it and it blew his mind. He was very enthusiastic about it. So it sort of started out as a joke, but often the best things do.”

The track will initially be available in two versions: a radio mix and an extended mix for DJs.
