ONYVA returns to his ON IT Recordings label this November with a massive disco-fuelled looper entitled ‘Disco Got His Revenge’ with a remix from duo Hott Like Detroit.
It’s been another big year for Manchester-based artist ONYVA, landing on labels like Red Lunar Records, Cr2 Records and Phonetic Recordings as well as stepping up to remix the likes of Funk D’Void. The ON IT Recordings is set to finish the year with a bang with this modern interpretation of the 90’s house ‘Disco’s Revenge’ by Gusto that sampled the classic Harvey Mason track (listen to it here).
“‘Disco Revenge’ has always been a classic of classics for me and that riff is stand out. I felt it would work to use that original Harvey Mason sample and build it into a more modern tech focused dancefloor roller with a tight groove and modern arrangement. I didn’t want to lose that riff, but keep it on the right side of cheesy. I think it worked!” – ONYVA
The original mix is a slick house roller that whirs and prods in all the right places, setting the backdrop for that feverous sample that caused dancefloor mayhem back in 1996.
ON IT label mates Hott Like Detroit deliver a more minimal, tech-house styled remix that strips back the brashness of the famed loop and adds analogue bass fuzz, glitchy wooden hits and some nice builds.
‘Disco Got His Revenge’ will drop on ON IT Recordings from 24th Nov, 2017.
