French Nu-Disco producer Mr. Gonzo is on a roll right now. Hot on the heels of his storming new single with Romuald, Gon Be A Thrill, his is the first reMix to break cover from the long rumoured Jupiter reMix album. The amazing Parisian ElectroPop duo have roped in a star studded cast to rework their Juicy Lucy album of last year. Mr. gonzo will be rubbing shoulder with the likes of Little Boots, Yan Wagner, Para One & Tacteel, JBAG, Juveniles, The Supermen Lovers, Steve Moore, Marius, and Colour Vision, which is quite scary company. Let’s see how he does.
Elliot Uppercut, one of the standouts on a stand out album, is the track Gonzo gets to grips with and fully delivers on smooth and sexy French Touch Disco. Despite being quite high energy, Mr. Gonzo manages to keep things on a laid back tip using lush synths and a sliding Disco bassline to their fullest. Amélie’s vocals sound as sweet as ever as the glide over. The synths in this reMix are so think, they melt into the track like chocolate, creating this delicious Disco ooze. This is a track mirrorballs were invented for. It’s so brilliant it’s like an audio lens-flare

This week French producer Mr. Gonzo, who we haven;t heard from in quite a while, released his new single Gon Be a Thrill. The track is a collaboration with Parisian singer of just about everything Romuald, and the two of the together cook up a slick, laid back Disco experience that is just right to hold on to until the summer months.
Gon Be A Thrill is pure sunshine ecstasy. Deep bass grooves and silky smooth synths life the track with an easy, breezy, feeling. Carefree and relaxed, the track is give an Indie-Electro edge with Romuald’s anthemic vocals. This one is built for slow-motion dancing in the sun.

It’s been a while since we heard from French producer Mr. Gonzo, since his ‘Extended Play Area’ EP he’s been of around the world DJing and hidden away working on his new single, which is released today on Folistar.
‘Dance On You’ is a massive tune that straddles the line between Nu-Disco and Electro-House. Squelchy funky basses rock the core of the track leaving loads of room for some crazy stabs and vocal snatches. Unmistakable French, ‘Dance On You’ takes the classic French Disco sound and layers it heavily with dirty, grunged up synths. Infectious stuff! The B-Side, ‘Wild Shoes’ is pure slick French Disco, cut up and stuck back together with good-times-glue. This track is slick dancefloor fodder, but amidst all the smooth grooves Mr. Gonzo manages to keep things raw with some subtly use of chainsaw synths. reMixes for the single are supplied by Tagteam Terror and DJ Gero.

Parisian producer Mr. Gonzo stopped by the electronic rumors Inbox to give us the lowdown on his recently released EP ‘Extended Play Area’.
He may be operating out of Paris but Mr. Gonzo was observed for the first time in 2010, around the giant elliptical galaxy M87. Which must be where his brand of laid back Cosmic Disco comes from. With some deep grooves and ear warping synths the lead track off the EP, ‘Magic Cherry’ is the kind of thing Buck Rodgers is getting’ down to in the 21st Century (obviously, not this 21st Century, y’know, the future 21st Century), and while we can only imagine what kind of Sci-Fi Disco goodness went goes on in the far future we can console ourselves with the fact that Mr. Gonzo’s slick Nu-Disco tunes are going to get our good old 2011 dancefloors moving.
