We have partnered with software company Izotope are happy to say we have been sponsored with some of the best vsts from the company.

Pump This Party / Set Me Free remixes 

PCP (Vol 3) was one of the biggest releases by Pianoman in the last 20 years. Pump This Party and Set Me Free were the most popular songs on the EP and very big DJ Faves. 

Both of these tunes are getting remixes starting with Pump This Party which will feature a banging classic Eurodance remix by DJ Paul S as well as a new remix from Pianoman. 

As before these tracks will be featured on the same vinyl release and pressed up in the limited quantity of 100 units. 

Watch social media for updates and how to buy. 

Whitney Tune (Wanna Dance) 2021 remixes 

One of the first and most popular Pianoman tracks "Whitney Tune" (Wanna Dance) is getting remixed for 2021.

Old Skool rave legends Terrorize are set to do their own take on this anthem with a mix produced by John O'Halloran of Hamster Records.

 

There is also a fantastic remix by E-Go (Stuart Chapman / James Sammon) that brings the old slow breakbeat style to the track giving it a similar vibe to the Maradona - Out Of My Head tune. Clips will be available on-site and across social media, once the DJ promos are sent out. 

This release will get a very limited 100 unit vinyl pressing.

The repress has been made possible by several private investors and will be the first of a series of new and classic tracks released again on vinyl .

Both Cast A Spell and Whitney Tune will be remastered to bring these recordings up to date both for DJ play and optimized for how we listen to music today.

A new Pianoman track is currently taking life in Ableton and we have gone right back to the start and the formula we used in the early '90s too.

Most importantly we have used all the original sound modules and synths we were using back then to make it 100% authentic.
