- The French veteran's two-disc mix for Defected features Todd Terje, Tom Moulton and Frankie Knuckles .
Dimitri From Paris has mixed a two-disc compilation for Defected Records called In The House Of Disco.
As its title implies, the mix looks to celebrate the overlap between disco and house. "I would like to dedicate this collection to the recently deceased Godfather Of House, Frankie Knuckles," says Dimitri. "A key person in the mutation of disco into house, he best described house music as 'disco's revenge.'"
The first disc, titled "Neo Vintage Disco," carries a disco flavour, with Dimitri drawing from his own pool of remixes (of classics by Sister Sledge, Diana Ross and Chic) as well as contemporary productions from Todd Terje, Shit Robot and Solomun. Disc Two ("Neo Vintage House") is a more house-focused affair, with versions of classics from Inner City, Frankie Knuckles and Hardrive rubbing shoulders with Disclosure and Hercules & Love Affair. It'll come out on CD and digital formats.
