Stop the press. There’s a new tune from the newly solo and still pluralised Final DJs. This time Final DJs has enlisted the help of SynthWave scene staple Dana Jean Phoenix on vocal duties, and the Canadian songstress adds that little bit of nostalgic flair to an otherwise Housey tune. Check out We Are The Night Below.
Crisp and clean, We Are The Night wears it’s Nu-Disco and French Touch roots on it’s sleeve. Warm basslines and heavy filtering underpin proceedings, creating a groaning core of some lush synth stabs and chirping leads. Dana’s vocal glides over the track like silk, tying everything together nicely and giving the track the human touch. Excellent summer evening listening.
Teardrops is the first new original tune from the newly solo Final DJs (yeah, we’re confused too, just try not to think about it) and it;’s really something you should pay attention too. Collaborating with British duo Frett, Final DJs have managed to serve up something quite original in a sea of sound-a-likes. Check it out.
There’s a lot of music around these days that takes it’s cues from 80s Sci-Fi soundtracks, and straight-to-video classics; but in a scene that is increasingly sounding nothing like it intends to as it fuels itself, Final DJs leans toward the Jarre end of the electronica spectrum whist delivering some authentic sounding soundtrack sounds. He brings the beat too, with a rumbling Disco groove running throughout. The vocal performance from Frett slips into the track with style, layering a passionate lament over the moody sounds. A track that bodes well for the future.
Germany’s Final DJs is back in the reMix business, this time taking on another of his favourite 80s tunes. This one come in the form of a blissful rewording of George Michael’s 1987 hit single; Father Figure. Retro synth goodness to follow.
Upping the tempo somewhat, Final DJs layers on thick synth bass and a laid back Disco beat. Capturing an 80s mood with his reMix while still completely retooling the song, they deliver a bouncy, pumped up version that utilises the Gospel chorus for a full-on energy blast.
So, Germany’s Final DJs are a little late to the Modern Hearts party. By now everyone and their dog has reMixed the track and we may have said we weren’t going to write about any more reMixes. But we’ll just sneak this last version of The Knocks and St. Lucia’s masterpiece in here as a bit of Summer 2013 nostalgia. Enjoy.
Final DJs whip up a rollicking piano led Disco-House jam right here. Infusing the piano hook with wicked little Disco licks the duo keep things light, airy and synthy. The track’s breezy keys counterpointed with a rich and spongy bassline. It all works wonderfully with the vocals, making the track infectiously fun and headed straight for the dancefloor. Another fine piece of work from the Teutonic twosome.
Out this week is the new release from Hungarian producer Kovary. Teaming up with vocalist Tamas Morocz he’s released Black And Green, a big Disco-House tune that comes equipped with a loaded reMix package.

Turning their SynthWave machine up to 11, Final DJs really deliver the huge, powerful, futuristic Disco grooves. Rocking along on an insanely funky synth bassline, the track is loaded to bursting point with lush sweeping synths, Disco pops and gritty leads. Balancing tough and funky nicely, Final DJs have delivered another storming tune.

One of our favourite German exports, the awesome duo Final DJs, are on a bit of a reMix roll at the moment. having recently turned in a storming mix of Stevie Nick’s Stand Back, the guys now turn their attention to Janet Jackson’s 90s hit That’s The Way Love Goes. Unusually choice for a track, but the Nu-Disco twosome really run with it.
More House oriented that Final Djs usual output, this reMix keeps the original’s soulful swing and pairs it with a shuffling, Garagey beat and pulsating warehouse bassline. Staying true to the early 90s sounds of the Jackson single, Final DJs conjure a Pop-Dance vibe true to the era. sustained strings, a trope of the time, are utilised to great effect here, tempering the tough groove to allow Jackson’s vocals to flow over the track like water.
It’s Basti from Germany’s finest Synth lovers Final DJs’ birthday! To celebrate this auspicious occasion the duo have whipped up this luscious reMix of Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks’ Stand Back. It’s an epic vocal that fits in nicely with Final DJs epic synth ethos. Expect hazy electronic vibes.
Loaded with dreamy synths, as thick as you like, this reMix is a multi layers wave of electronic goodness. Waves of rich tones and nostalgic hooks crash over Stevie Nicks husky vocal. With just a hint of Cosmic Disco and Italo amongst the slick SynthWave styled ElectroPop, Final Djs make the track both hazily nostalgia and futuristic at the same time. Retro future beauty from Germany with a soulful American vocal, what more could you want?
It’s been quite a while since the release of Black Magic Disco’s Downtown single, over a year in fact. The release came equipped with a storming B-side track, First Avenue, that this week gains single status of it’s own with the unleashing of BMD’s First Avenue reMixes on Pole Position Recordings. Pulling together talent such as Final DJs, Viper Strike, Phunktastike and Tom Eales, alongside BMD himself, this release covers a nice chunk of dancefloor ground.
The obvious track of most interest in the collection comes from Pole Position’s own Viper Strike who have teamed up with Mr. Patrick Baker to create a slick vocal version of the track. All sweeping synths and lazy piano hooks, Viper Strike’s mix a pure poolside bliss. A proper late summer nights groove with a smooth voice, these guys nicely weave together Disco and House. Germany’s Final DJs, the most prolific guys in Nu-Disco it seems, get into a bit of an SynthWave/Boogie crossover groove with their reMix. Mixing up Bronx beats with Acidic squeals and Sci-Fi synths, this duo roll their own genre and give it a Disco twist. Black Magic Disco’s own reimagining of First Avenue replaces the originals midnight funk with some full-on Chicago House sounds. Revelling in it’s early 90s heritage, BMD’s mix is a total white gloves moment. Also holding reMixes from Phunktastike and Tom Eales, this reMix package is definitely worth checking out.

Another new single from Final DJs?!?!? They just don’t quit do they? Whenever Germany’s finest release a new tune it;s always a guessing game as to whether it’ll be SynthWave Final DJs or Nu-Disco Final DJs, whether it’ll be sweeping cinematic synths or groovy Tropical riffs. This new tune, Feel Your Breath, featured on the We Re-Created Disco, is a little of both, but leaning toward mirrorballed dancefloors.
Before we talk about the rest of the song, we just have to mention the insane, emotional, spine-tingling breakdown in this tune.
