Available on all your favorite streaming services and online music stores as of today: Remix The Remix – Diamond In The Night (feat. Bowman). The song is a deephouse remake of Felli – Diamond in the Night, which was released in 1983 on Disco Magic records. The song is considered a classic in the Italo Disco scene.
The story behind this song
Originally, a new version of Diamond In The Night was recorded in 2018. Bowman is a U.S.-based singer who recorded new vocals in his studio. These were used on the 2018 version of the song. That version was included on UniGroove’s ADE sampler. Patrick von Hecke, at the time A&R manager at ZYX Music, was very enthusiastic about this sampler and wanted to sign four tracks of it right away. One of those four tracks was Diamond In The Night.
So negotiations began, but before an agreement could be reached, Patrick left the company for another job. Despite reaching out to his replacement, nobody from ZYX responded anymore and the track ended up on the shelf.
After hearing Regard – Ride it in 2019, producer Jonathan Joosten figured the mood of that track would fit the lyrics of Diamond In The Night very well. A new version was recorded, which is the version that came out today.
As there was no artistname assigned to this project, the name Remix The Remix was chosen, as that sort of saptures what happened with this song: The remix of the remix became the version that got released.
