    Originally released in 1999 and featuring Taka Boom (sister of Chaka Khan) on vocals, ‘Must Be The Music’ was a hit in every sense of the word. Released by the Subliminal label, it was a one of the rare records to make the transition from club mainstay to genuine pop hit, eventually breaking into the top 10 of the UK singles chart.

    Now completely reworked by Joey Negro himself, the record has been totally transformed and given a new lease of life as a shimmering disco anthem in the vein of disco demigods Chic and Change.

    “The only thing that remains from the original record is the chorus backing vocals. All the drums, music and verse vocals from Dianne Charlamagne are new. The original sounds a little dated to me now: it’s too fast and has that filtered sound that worked in the 90s and still seems to find favour in some quarters, but for me is tired.

    “Because it was a hit I often get asked to play it when I DJ, so I thought it would be cool to do a radically different remake my own song, produce a new version I could play in my sets alongside original disco and the new music I’m making now.” Joey Negro

    This new version of ‘Must Be The Music’ is taken from the forthcoming Joey Negro album Produced With Love. Only the second ever Joey Negro album to be released – and the first for more than 20 years – the overwhelming majority of music included was newly recorded: a real rarity when it comes to modern disco and indicative of the level of care and attention that has been poured into the project.

    Joey Negro Remixed With Love has been on constant rotation at home and at my gigs. Every track is a killer. Joey Negro is a true master at work -- Ashley Beedle




    Remixed With Love is Joey Negro's dream project and most definitely a labour of love. The album features 18 tracks all remixed from original session tapes some more than 30 years old which was "A headache" to source as Joey puts it.

    "Often you end up speaking to relatives of the person who actually made the record and unfortunately I heard the line all too often, "I might have a copy of the vinyl somewhere but I definitely don't know where the master tapes are."

    As a fanatical music collector and enthusiast Joey found himself meeting up with ex-label reps and relatives of the artists leaving no stone unturned - searching through boxes and in lofts. One multitrack was even under the producer's bed. With such dedication comes results and the result is impressive.

    Rather than remixes in their modern definition this is a body of remixes in a re-edit style with the tracks given a new dimension to make them more relevant and playable for today's dancefloors.

    In many cases the drums have been changed, percussion added and sometimes more keyboard parts but he's not totally ditched the original structure of the music. This project is about utilising some of those fantastic original parts in a different way that takes advantage of many of the songs classic status subtly teasing in familiar elements and dubbing them out.
