Norman Doray’s summer has been one crammed full of top notch productions and storming gigs in the world’s best venues. Amongst regular trips to Ibiza to rock Ushuaia, Erick Morillo’s Subliminal Invasion and Masquerade Motel with Swedish House Mafia at Pacha, Norman also managed to co-produce the huge summer hit Chase the Sun with David Tort, spending a huge 8 weeks in Beatport’s Top 10 chart.
Strictly Ibiza to Amsterdam is comprised of two discs – “Day” and “Night” which reflect the different sides of Norman Doray. “Day” is a tribute to Norman’s funk and disco roots and works in his brand new single Kalifornia produced specially for this compilation with classics such as Phunkie Souls – Tha Music, one of his all time personal favorites.
“Night” showcases the clubbier, progressive and tribal sound that he’s currently playing at clubs around the globe. The rhythm is higher, the tracks are stronger and it corresponds totally to what you’d expect from a night out with Norman Doray. Here Norman mixes together big room gear such as Dirty South and Thomas Gold feat. Kate Elsworth Alive, Deniz Koyu Tung!, Sebjak and Richard Grey Pump Up The Volume and David Tort’s remix of Kalifornia.
Kalifornia combines a classic 80s disco feel with the sound of today’s true underground house scene to perfect effect. Drenched in feel-good disco vibes that come courtesy of some archetypal Studio54 strings, Kalifornia shines with a glittering and vintage aesthetic while still injecting the drive. On the flip, David Tort adds more space and tones down the disco flamboyance in favor of pumping yet still very funky electronic beats. The result is insane, it works so well in club and it’s already supported by Swedish House Mafia, Dirty South, Tiësto, David Guetta and more.
“I really wanted to go back to my roots of funk and disco. I wanted to do something like Junior Jack or Kid Crème, who have always been my inspiration… I love progressive house and really clubbish tracks but I think it’s also important to show people your other face as a producer,” said Doray.
Norman Doray has a busy fall lined up with slots on Masquerade Motel and F*** I’m Famous in Ibiza and select US dates in mid-September.
