The Vinyl Factory’s second 12” remix instalment of Roisin Murphy’s stunning Mi Senti EP features a dark, future disco rework from Optimo’s JD Twitch.
Róisín Murphy’s love affair with Italian music reaches new heights as the release of the second 12” remix bundle draws closer. Optimo’s JD Twitch leads proceedings with a warped and sonorous disco take on ‘In Sintesi’ – a new Murphy composition on the Mi Senti EP, which also includes five fresh covers of Italian pop classics. JD Twitch masterfully recasts the material to give it a new interpretation, following on from Psychemagik’s acid house version on the first remix bundle.
On the B side, there’s more cosmic disco with a collaborative remix from two Italian legends, Daniele Baldelli and Marco Dionigi. They plunge into ‘Ancora Tu’ – Murphy’s slow burning house cover of the classic Lucio Battisti hit – and emerge with a frisky retro-futuristic sound.
You can listen to JD Twitch’s remix of ‘In Sintesi’ below:
