Say ‘Yeah!’ to this Mordisco remix of Jerry Bouthier
No matter what day of the week you’re listening to this monster deep house remix, MORDISCO reworking JERRY BOUTHIER will make any day feel like Friday. Bouthier, a somewhat pioneer of the Parisian electronic scene, released ‘Yeah!’ as a part of his DJ Tools series on the label Continental Records and it is an absolute boomer from start to finish. Vive la France, indeed.
Mordisco, a Barcelona based duo, have given the tune a sensual, deep house rework that is going to make any time feel like 4am in some cool, underground Spanish club – one too many tequila shots down. The remix is relentless, not leaving one moment un-milked. From those opening synths coupled with those festive maracas in the first few seconds, you know that this track – almost reaching seven minutes in length – is going to take you for one hell of a ride so hold on tight.
It never stops progressing; it chugs on and on, instilling new energy in the listener with each new layer added. This is what remixes are supposed to do, fam. They should make you see the original in a completely different light. This one just happens to leave you breathless in the best way possible.
‘Yeah!’ is Bouthier‘s first effort as a solo artist under his own name. He spent years crafting under JBAG – a project with Andrea Gorgerino – and says he hasn’t really felt comfortable to go completely solo until now, even though it’s clear the skills have always been there.
“With time I’ve acquired confidence and felt I could produce some decent DJ tunes on my own – the kind of funky, housey stuff I play in my sets, nothing as musical or song-led as JBAG – it wouldn’t be fun to do the same thing. The idea of delivering a series of DJ Tools soon came to me, you know simple yet effective tracks that work the dancefloor well without fuss…”
No fuss is right. ‘Yeah!’ and the subsequent Mordisco remix don’t stuff around when it comes to letting you know that they mean business. And in this case, business and pleasure are the same damn thing.
