[Audio] Monsieur Adi’s ‘Lucky Ones’

 

Monsieur Adi

Our favourite French composer Monsieur Adi has pulled the curtain back on his new single, the follow up to last years What’s Going On?. Enlisting the help of Brooklyn based singer Negin he’s soon to drop Lucky Ones, which sounds like Adi’s bit of the superstardom he so rightly deserves. The first hint we’ve had from Adi’s forthcoming début album, to be titled After Hours and due out early next year; this is undoubtedly the biggest Pop song you’ll have heard this year!

This is huge stuff, proper massive Pop but without any contrivance at all. Adi’s a stunningly talented musician and writer and that ability shines through and elevates the track well above identikit Dance Pop. Pairing pounding beats with layers upon layers of thick synths; Adi brings his knowledge of both Dance Music and Pop into pin-sharp clarity. Negin’s singing isn’t too shabby wither.

[Audio] Monsieur Adi reMixes Zendaya’s ‘Replay’

 

Zendaya

Zendaya is apparently some kind of Disney-esque American child star thing, the likes of which we’re pretty glad hasn’t made it across the Atlantic. Frankly, America need to concentrate on developing some of it’s amazing original Pop stars and spend less time bothering about these made-for-TV children, and they’re not that welcome this side of the pond. What is always welcome, however, is a new reMix from Monsieur Adi, who’s big room sounds make Zendaya’s Replay orders of magnitude more palatable.

Zendaya’s identikit vocals are twisted around in Adi’s rich musical tapestry and turned into something remarkably emotive. Used by Adi as another instrument, the vocals weave themselves around layers of rising synths and pulsating bass as the Monsieur delivers some spine-tingling moments and some breakdown’s fit for peak time. Adi’s reMixes never fail.

[Audio] Monsieur Adi reMixes Britney Spears’ ‘Work Bitch’

Is Monsieur Adi a Pop star yet? We were sure it was supposed to happen about now. We consulted the oracle and everything. Still What’s Going On? is released today, and it’s hotly tipped for chart dominance, so we’ll give it a week or so. In the meantime he’s doing official reMixes for Britney Spears. That’s a thing that happens when you’re a Pop star y’see.

You gotta’ give Britney credit for trying, she’s like a Pop Jack Russell trying to get at your cuppa; relentless. Also Toxic was awesome. Adi’s take on her latest single, the toe curling Work Bitch, applies his bombastic Electro to the track and is never once ashamed of going large. His rousing, cinematic, orchestration is present and correct, layered with big room synths and a nice line in boomy kicks. In anyone one else’s hand’s these huge riff and Britney vocals would have been pure cheese, but work in a little of that Adi 78-piece orchestra, and it all suddenly goes a bit epic.

[Audio] Monsieur Adi & A*M*E’s ‘What’s Going On?” reMixed by The Knocks

 

Monsieur Adi

The man like Monsieur Adi and his stunning break for mainstream attention, What’s Going On?, has finally got itself a release date, and the first sign of reMixes too. The A*M*E tune is already making huge waves and getting a serious amount of airplay, this one looks like it could propel Adi to superstardom, and well deserved too, we’ve said it numerous times, Adi is one of the most talented producers around. Check out what New York Disco duo The Knocks did to the track.

The Knocks give What’s Going On? a breezy House workout with a Disco groove. Revolving around a funkin’ bassline and hands-in-the-air piano hook, The Knocks’ reMix utilises A*M*E’s big vocals to their fullest, making the whole reMix sound huge. There’s nothing like a piano riff and diva vocals to get the party started. While you’re here, peep this version from Max Sanna And Steve Pitron, it’s a pretty standard club affair, not really bringing much originality to the table but I guess Sony, a major label, wanted to keep things safe to a certain degree. Who knows, you might dig it.

[Audio] Monsieur Adi reMixes Capital Cities’ ‘Safe And Sound’

 

Capital Cities

LA IndiePoppers Capital CitiesSafe And Sound is getting quite long in the tooth now, we first wrote about it back in June 2011. The track has been give a new lease of life by French prodigy Monsieur Adi who delivers a little bit of his old style Electro Disco on this one. We’re not sure if this is a recent reMix, or something that’s been sat in the vaults for a while, either way we’re glad it’s seeing the light of day.

Adi works his magic, as we would expect him to, with grinding Electro riffs and slick Disco grooves mixed up with an addictive horn section. Morphing the song from summery Indie jam into Majestic epic, Adi’s reMix injects the track with a certain amount of drama amidst the Filtered Disco vibes, the vocals taking on a new energy set against the repeating fanfare. This is classic Monsieur Adi, a track to get excited about.

[Audio] Monsieur Adi & A*M*E’s ‘What’s Going On?’

 

Monsieur Adi

It feels like everyone’s coming of age this week. Two producers we’ve been championing for years are set to explode, first Mitch Murder is gearing up to drop his Mad Decent début, and now our good friend Monsieur Adi, who’s been poised for a mainstream embrace for a while now, is about to release his début single via Relentless/Sony. Not only that, but the track features the UK’s current House vocalist darling A*M*E. After a run of major projects, producing Seal, reMixing Beyoncé, Adi’s time is now.

Long time Adi fans will instantly recognise What’s Going On?. It’s a track that’s been brewing for a while, since 2010 in fact when we first heard the Frenchman’s reMix of Soul II Soul’s Back To Like (However Do You Want Me?). In the in-between years the track has been given an extreme makeover, they synths are fatter, the beats harder, the orchestration more epic and  the Caron Wheeler vocal line has been replaced by A*M*E who is sounding, frankly, better than I’ve ever heard her as she makes the track her own and delivers a truly stratospheric performance. This is the best of Adi, rousing stings, thick synth hooks, a Dreamwavey Disco style wrapped up with hard Electro production and Pop sensibilities. It’s gonna’ be huge.

[Audio] Monsieur Adi reMixes Mikky Ekko’s ‘Kids’

 

Mikky Ekko

Our favourite Frenchman Monsieur Adi is on such a roll these days. Finally getting some of that attention we’ve been saying he should be getting for years now, some big names are starting to look Adi’s way, not least due to his recent production stint for Seal. Up right now is his reMix of American singer Mikky Ekko’s single, Kids.

This is Adi at his ElectroPop finest. Despite having a massive track record with big Electro tunes and Symphonic Dreamwave, Adi really knows his Pop, and proves it right here. Raising the track higher than is ever was originally, Adi, drops hugs beats and retro synths, washing the track in a nostalgic sheen that flows with the vocals perfectly. This sounds like it should have always been this was. The Parisian strikes again.

[Audio] Monsieur Adi reMixes Say Lou Lou

 

Say Lou Lou

We’ve been looking forward to this one. We twigged a few weeks ago that the amazing Monsieur Adi was reMixing the new single from Australian/Swedish sisters Say Lou Lou new single Julian. It’s a deep, emotional song, just the kind of thing that we imagined Adi could really get his teeth into, and he did, and here it is.

It’s actually quite old school Adi. A warm Dreamwavey Nu-Disco track, loaded with ElectroPop affectations. A big French Touch floorfiller, Adi plays with the mood of the track perfectly, giving it a dancey boost without loosing and if the tune’s inherent romanticism. Pulsing synthetic bass, effecting stabs and big airy pads mingle together and wisp around the vocals like smoke. Adi the producer of the moment, and in high demand, and this reMix shows just why. This is how you reMix for the dancefloor and stay classy.
