Did you know that Tocadisco means ‘turntable’ in Spanish? It’s an obviously fitting name for the German producer who has released track after track on some of the biggest electronic labels, including Dim Mak, Toolroom and Ajunabeats. 2012 has seen a variety of stellar songs from this guy: “Jump” and “Wild Thing” – electro house along with “The Clamp” – techno. In a few days he will be heading to the warmer climates of America del Sur for his Brazil tour, a land perfectly suited for his following remix of “Let The Sun Shine 2012.”
Milk and Sugar’s version plays more on the piano and vocals of the original pop song, which Billboard listed as one of the top 100 songs of all time. Tocadisco’s house dub remix removes these elements, replacing them with bongos, xylophone and the subtle sound of running water. Things like this last small nuance make a song, and that’s why Tocadisco continues to be a big name in the industry. Take a listen and you’ll understand why Brazil and this remix were made for each other.
