2017 Rewind: Flashmob

Vitali Gelwich Flashmob

How was 2017 for you? 
Flashmob: Was a really interesting and intense one. Many things have changed in my project, and I am now ready with a new flow of music for the next season.

Certainy my release on Toolroom but now I have Snatch! in December then Kompakt in January with a collaboration with Terranova, and then Hot Creation in the new year … plus three remixes that I am really proud of: one for DJ Hell on Gigolo, one for Romanthony on Glasgow Underground, and one for Marshall Jefferson as Sleezy D on Freakin’909.

I’d rather not talk of my personal life but I was out of the game for four months this year for some really serious personal stuff. Life is life and we all have to deal with it and move on … happy to say I have now moved on. 🙂

Song of the year?
Bollen & Fichtner’s “Better Call Paul”

What’s your New Year’s resolution? 
To eat less dark chocolate


Premiere: DJ Le Roi’s “Future” (Flashmob Remix)

DJ Le Roi

Steve Lawler’s VIVa MUSIC continues to blaze new trails in dance music, serving both as a forum for releases by big-name artists and rising talent. The label shifts into high gear this month with the upcoming release of My Mind EP, a splendid three-tracker from emerging Swiss mixmaster DJ Le Roi (pictured above). Known for crafting club tracks for choice imprints such as Hot Creations, Culprit, Get Physical, Objektivity, Noir Music and Defected, DJLR starts off his year with a trio of absolutely sublime house tracks.

flashmobWe’re thrilled to world premiere the remix of “Future” off the EP reinterpreted by the equally buzzworthy Italian duo Flashmob (pictured, right), who regular readers will remember crafted a stellar Big Shot Guest Mix last October (listen to their mix here).

Soak up the Milan-based twosome’s stripped down re-rub of DJ Le Roi’s floor mover, and get your groove on!

DJ Le Roi’s My Mind EP is out January 26 on VIVa MUSIC.
