Rod Stewart‘s “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy” is one of those songs you’d be hard pressed to find most people admitting they enjoy, but it’s on my list of guilty pleasures!
My eye’s lit up when I saw Zimmer had given it a rework. He’s kept the vibe of the original but added some layers that give it a modern twist, the results are simply divine!
A mixtape from Zimmer needs little introduction. His monthly offerings always bring together the best new music and are an absolute pleasure to listen to. Enjoy his February tape ‘Day Dreams‘ below and check back for the track list tomorrow!
Here’s my February tape.
Full of dreamy vibes and feel-good tunes.
Hope it takes you to dream land for an hour.
You can always rely on Portugal’s Disco Texas label to put out a quality release, and their latest comes in the form of ‘Melt’ from Polish electro pop trio Kamp! The Zimmer remix gives the melodic original a fresh energy and is getting my day started in the right way.
The package was just released on Beatport and also includes mixes from Midnight Magic and XINOBI.
Zimmer‘s January mixtape ‘Brighter Days’ is an uplifting hour-long mix, exactly what is needed on this cold wintry day in NYC. We’ll get a full tracklist on Wednesday, but there’s a killer mix of Jennifer Lopez‘s ‘Play,’ swiftly followed by an excellent take on Suzanne Vega’s ‘Tom’s Diner‘ kicking things off. If that doesn’t get you excited, I’m not sure what will!

Oh yes, another disco re-work from Zimmer. After loving ever single one of his mix tapes we’ve been graced with all Summer, it’s time for another revamp of an old classic.
He takes the 1978 hit ‘Everybody Dance’ - his ‘favorite disco tune ever’ by disco outfit Chic into new territory. Listen below.
