New York’s melodic tune monger Serge Devant receives a sturdy British takeover from promising UK Progressive warriors Paul Thomas and Luke Marsh for an on the mark remix of his single ‘True Faith’. Where Thomas needs little introduction to the realms of middle-end club fuel, his Midlands peer Marsh extends his underground energy for this high-profile take on Devant’s emotive original edit.
In a storm of atypical Progressive leads and ferocious melodic builds, this double-Brit charge of extensive studio skill lays down a formatively euphoric number, positively excelling the more predictable original edit in terms of style and consistency for this proud calendar mark for British Dance music.

Following 2009’s remix for ‘12 Wives In Teheran’, David Tort dons his sharp sound to another hit from the hands of Serge Devant. Armed with a crunching electro sound, the mesmerizing vocals of Coyle Girelli and uplifting overtones, the Barcelona producer rounds the proceedings of his 2011 off gracefully with his second ever remix on the Ultra Records-signed Brooklyn-based Devant. Returning from a wide pallette of David Tort trademarks such as One Look for Axtone, the mysteriously smashing Jack It Up for Size and hard-lined remixes of Henrik B’s Acid Rocker and Norman Doray’s Kalifornia, makes his second appearance on the influential Ultra imprint. And obviously having quite a few pots in the oven for release next year, there is certainly no arguing with Tort’s establishment as one of Spain’s finest House music exports.
As given a premiere play by his tech icon of a compatriot, Funkagenda, in his Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1, Paul Thomas teams up with Birmingham resident, Luke Marsh, to preview a new remix of theirs. Becoming a recognizable name in the tech scene with his acknowledged fuse of progressive and tech, Paul Thomas and his ever catchy signature sound has been the utmost fuel for releases like Circle Of Life alongside Manuel De La Mare and his remixes of Enlevez Moi and Balkan Tourist. With an upcoming take on Trafik’s The Difference, the United Kingdom producer combines forces with Marsh for an interpretation of Serge Devant’s upcoming True Faith single. It’s set for release soon on influential Ultra Records, have a listen!
