The talented Monsieur Adi’s A*M*E featuring soon-to-be breakthrough single What’s Going On?’s release date draws ever nearer. It;s already being tipped to hit the charts and we couldn’t be happier for Adi, it looks like he’ll finally get the success and recognition he so richly deserves. While your waiting for it;s next month release, check out this Refix Adi himself has done for the tune, adding a little Javi to the mix too.
This Refix injects a little classic, epic, Adi into the tune. A dancefloor destroying companion to the originals Pop stylings. This tune is loaded with massive, sweeping synths, huge breakdowns and growling bass that all plays perfectly with Adi cinematic orchestration. It’s like Adi of old meets new Adi, and the results will most definitely rock any crowd.

Monsieur Adi’s What’s Going On? is released 15th November.
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.

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.
There’s definitely something going on at camp Fear Of Tigers. First we get a new track last month, Golden Age, now an official reMix for hotly tipped songstress A*M*E’s new single Heartless. All this new activity gives us hopes for the long awaited release of Fear Of Tigers’ Hypnerotomachia Poliphiliout, the follow up to 2009’s Cossus Snufsigalonica.
This reMix is pure classic Fear Of Tigers too. Epic, emotional, nostalgic ElectroPop full of those big chords and intricate electronic flourishes that we love FoT for. Taking A*M*E’s R&B flavoured tune and turning it into a huge 80s Power Pop synth epic is no mean feat, but Fear Of Tigers pulls it off with style. This tune is big.

While you’re here, check out secret Disco lover Skream’s Boogie filled remix of the track. Loaded with a surprising amount of 80s flair, there’s neither a grimy bassline or an aggressive beat in sight. Pure smooth Electric Soul vibes.
