Diana Ross – The Boss (Dimitri From Paris Remix Edit)
Practiced disco monger Dimitri From Paris unloaded a triumphant return to Defected Records this month, unloading his aptly titled ‘In The House of Disco’ compilation to set the nostalgic waves charging into the summer season. Among the audacious collection of edits, rarities and upfront genre favorites sits a very special lap of honor for Detroit R&B icon Diana Ross, giving “The Boss” a dose of the Parisian titan’s modern disco etiquette. Given a lick of fresh paint and a solid percussive backbone, Dimitri’s rendition does the soulful original a world of justice whilst treading cautiously over the Supreme’s front woman’s vocal legacy in the process. For all the throwbacks to ‘bless’ the digital market of late, Dimitri From Paris proves that there is still room for creative retrospect on the modern dance floor when done with respectful conviction.
