We're happy to announce the return of Dimitri From Paris to Glitterbox, with a lockdown collaboration featuring the unmistakable vocal stylings of Fiorious.
Rarely does an artist pay homage to the classics quite like Dimitri From Paris, whose illustrious repertoire of original productions and remixes effortlessly capture the essence of the disco greats. After releasing his acclaimed collection of CHIC remixes with Glitterbox in 2019, Dimitri has now partnered with NYC singer-songwriter Fiorious, an artist who represents the dawning of a new era in dance music talent, to release ‘Music Saved My Life’.
With Fiorious’ previous Glitterbox releases including powerful call-to-resistance anthem ‘I’m Not Defeated’ and re-work of Aly-Us’ 90s classic ‘Follow Me’, his impassioned vocal paired with Dimitri’s meticulous production make for a perfect match. A celebration of music’s ability to provide sanctuary and liberate, ‘Music Saved My Life’ encapsulates the ethos of the disco golden era and its modern-day equivalent, Glitterbox. Beautifully brought to life by an international ensemble of over twenty world-class musicians, this is a truly exceptional release from a pioneer of dance, and a future star of the scene, that stands up alongside the disco greats.
Fiorious says making the record came as a welcome tonic over the last few months: "Making this song with Dimitri was by far the best and most unexpected pandemic surprise, a personal and therapeutic record that has helped lift my own spirits throughout this challenging year. I'm still honored that he chose me to write and sing on this track and that I got to earn my disco stripes with the very best. We're both extremely proud of this record and I can't wait to perform it and hear it soar on a dancefloor the way it was intended."
Dimitri added: “A year ago, we got brutally forced into a very strict lockdown, everything looked grim and dark. Unexpectedly, I got to hear Fiorious’ vocal delivery, and it felt like the light was back on. He made the song shine in a beautiful way, and it inspired me to craft a new arrangement around his voice. Thanks to the Glitterbox family across the world, we were able to defy the pandemic, and put a glorious orchestra together. A simple message can mean a lot more in a certain space and time. Not only did 'Music Saved My Life' keep me in check during hardship, it most importantly, made me realize music saved my entire life”
