Recently I completed a new Megamix for Rick Gianatos on the fantastic new Jessica Williams single 'So Good' originally recorded by Mica Paris. It is the bonus track on physical CD single which is coming soon on Altair Music. I created the So Good Megamix from the amazing Matt Pop Club, Dub and Instrumental mixes.
'So Good' is the follow up single to '24 Hours A Day' and the second track taken from her forthcoming new album. If you are a fan of Disco, Hi-NRG, Pop, Dance, you will certainly love this feel good track. More news on the release coming soon.
Earlier this year I announced that I would work again with Rick Gianatos on a new track for an upcoming release on Altair Music. I am delighted to announce that Scherrie Payne - Hope [David Strong Megamix] has just been released globally on most Digital Download and Streaming music websites.
Originally recorded in 1982, it was originally intended to be the follow up single to 'One Night Only' and was recorded at the same session. It remained unreleased until 2012 when it featured as a bonus track on 'Let Yourself Go'. Given the present global coronavirus crisis the sentiment of the song makes it an appropriate track for it's own release.
Here's hoping 2020 is as good as 2019, a few months ago famed music producer Rick Gianatos asked me to create a Megamix of his Jessica Williams - 24 Hours A Day based on the club, dub and instrumental mixes by Matt Pop. I am happy to announce that my Jessica Williams - 24 Hours A Day Megamix is now available to purchase from iTunes, Google Play, Amazon and other major global Digital Stores.
