Info for Mixmag Presents Teddy Pendergrass: The Remixes - EP
In support of the feature-length documentary ‘Teddy Pendergrass – If You Don’t Know Me’, Mixmag presents ‘Teddy Pendergrass: The Remixes. Featuring contributions from the foremost figures in the global electronic music scene Jamie Jones, Damian Lazarus, DJ Pierre, Francesca Lombardo and Cassy.
Throughout the EP, selections from Teddy Pendergrass’ timeless catalogue are reimagined through an electronic lens. Opening the release is the first single out today, Jamie Jones’ remix of ‘Life is a Song Worth Singing’. Faithful to the feel-good essence of the original track, Jamie’s delivers a rippling and synth-based interpretation.
Damian Lazarus manipulates the raspy tones Teddy was famed for on ‘I Don’t Love You Anymore’,building an ambient disco groove around sparse vocal lines. DJ Pierre tackles the gem ‘The More I Get, The More I Want’ from TP’s celebrated first album. ‘Do Me’, a signature record that solidified Pendergrass’ sex symbol status receives rhythmic yet subdued rework courtesy of Francesca Lombardo. Cassy’s remix of ‘Only You’ substitutes its funky roots in favour of a thumping and bass-driven affair ready to set any dancefloor alight.
‘Teddy Pendergrass – If You Don’t Know Me’ chronicles the life and career of one of the soul music’s most cherished acts. As one of the first African-American artists to churn out four consecutive platinum albums, Teddy Pendergrass was undeniably on the brink of a superstardom that would rival the likes of Marvin Gaye, Barry White and Issac Hayes. Through interviews with family, friends and colleagues the biopics tells the story of his rise to fame within the complexities of 1960s America, his tragic fall and his triumphant comeback.
Producer of the documentary, Piers Tempest commented: “Teddy’s story is an important and ultimately inspiring one and we are delighted to help shine a light on the man and his music”. With this remix package, Mixmag and this all-star roster of producers further consolidate Teddy’s enduring impact on music history.
World renowned DJ and producer, Hot Creations label boss, founder and curator of the Paradise global event series and a member of cross-genre band Hot Natured, over the last decade Jamie Jones had pioneered his own distinct sound that has paved the way for a warmer, more melodic, side of techno to emerge.
It was DJs Can Dance - the East London warehouse parties he threw in the mid 00’s - that helped him make his mark on the capital, while the countless summers spent playing in Ibiza solidified him as an integral cog in the island’s music scene. 2010 saw him hold an esteemed residency at DC10 for Monday’s Circoloco day parties, but little did he know that a year later he would be at the helm of one of the island’s most respected parties at the very same club.
This year marks the seventh season of Paradise at it’s Ibiza home of DC10. As a raver, this is the club where Jamie spent his summers on the dance floor and where he came to meet the family that would later make Paradise a reality. Wanting to offer something different to the Ibiza party circuit and inspired by Larry Levan’s legendary Paradise Garage parties in New York, he set out to create a party that was eclectic, creative with an intimate family feel. Now he’s bringing a little bit of Paradise to every corner of the globe with parties landing in cities like Miami, New York, LA, Moscow and Toronto. Over the years Paradise has grown globally, partnering with like minded brands and festivals including The Warehouse Project, Printworks, Tomorrowland, We Are Fstvl, BPM and DGTL.
To date, Jamie’s label Hot Creations has put out over 100 releases, with the 100th, ‘Kooky Chords’, coming from Jamie himself last September, hitting the number 2 spot on Beatport’s chart. The label has also helped launch the careers of numerous artists such as Patrick Topping, Richy Ahmed and Detlef, who also make up part of the loyal Paradise family Jamie has built around him.
