Dimitri From Paris is one of the most prolific disco and funk producers and DJs of our time, having created masterpiece after masterpiece across his near 25-year music career.

To celebrate Dimitri’s return to the Groove Odyssey stage at 51st State Festival, we’ve pulled together five of his most game-changing remixes.

Chic - I Want Your Love (Dimitri From Paris Remix)
Dimitri took this absolute classic and put his own unique spin on it - transforming it into a 9 minute floorfiller that gradually builds to an almighty finale. A lesson in creating an incredible remix whilst still respecting the art of the original.

Sister Sledge - Thinking Of You (Dimitri From Paris Remix)
Sister Sledge’s mid-tempo ode to love and romance was given an overhaul by Dimitri, with little production flourishes here and there that elevate it even further.

The Jackson 5 - I Want You Back (Dimitri From Paris Supa Funk Brakes Remix)
It’s difficult to tackle a track so widely-loved as ‘I Want You Back’ and be successful. Luckily, Dimitri’s remix is a subtle masterpiece, creating a six-minute burst of joy.

Crystal Waters - Gypsy Woman (La Da Dee) (Dimitri From Paris Remix)
Dimitri’s remix of this 90s club anthem takes away the house beats and replaces them with a smooth samba beat and a gorgeous saxophone solo to boot.

The Trammps - The Night The Lights Went Out (Dimitri From Paris Disco Re-Edit)
Our final remix from Dimitri is a true masterpiece - a disco monster that Dimitri has taken and elevated further with his signature production style. Here’s hoping he drops this, and a few of the above, in his set at this year’s 51st State Festival!
