French producer @GianniKosta returns with Canada’s @Dragonette for earworm “Phantom”

GIANNI KOSTA x DRAGONETTE, “Phantom”

It’s great to see two talents come together who haven’t been often in the public lately, them being French producer and remixer Gianni Kosta and Canadian duo Dragonette.  Gianni Kosta is a well-respected producer known for high-powered remixes of songs by the likes of Demi Lovato and Lost Frequencies, and releases his own music now and again.  “Phantom” takes a few spins but it’s definitely an earworm that has pop radio potential.  Since their last album, 2016’s Royal Blues, Dragonette has largely been a collaborating force, most recently with artists like Shaun Frank (2018’s Canadian pop radio hit “Tokyo Nights”, also with Digital Farm Animals), Autograf, Klingande, and Plastic Plates. “Phantom” brings back to our attention the definitive voice of Martina Sorbara, who also co-wrote the song with Gianni.  “Phantom” is a tease with a dash of sleaze, and fans of both Gianna Kosta and Dragonette will enjoy it immensely while it attracts new fans as well.

Chicago’s @Autografmusic returns with @GianniKosta remixing the romantic “You Might Be” featuring @supLils

AUTOGRAF featuring LILS, “You Might Be” (Gianni Kosta remix)

“You Might Be” is the kind of dance record that immediately goes to the front of the line for attention.  It’s new from Chicago production trio Autograf through Warner’s Big Beat label, and featuring soaring singer Lils (formerly Lily Elise) in a lush official remix by France’s Gianni Kosta.  “You Might Be” is a bubbly, romantic, tightly-recorded song whose lovely wash of layered synths and dreamy vocal are a far cry from the non-descript pop EDM that pervades the radio today.  While it’s definitely love-at-first-listen for “You Might Be”, I’ll guarantee the more you play this one, the more it will sink in, and it will definitely create an uplifting presence on the dance floor.  It’s yours to check out at the link above.

Crunchy European groove: “Sirius” by @GianniKosta featuring #Belle

GIANNI KOSTA featuring BELLE, “Sirius”

Paris-based producer Gianni Kosta has a winner with “Sirius” featuring vocalist Belle through Armada’s The Bearded Man imprint.  Gianni’s already caught attention working with Lost Frequencies and Demi Lovato’s “Confident”.  But “Sirius” has definitely got a crunch European groove down pat which will standout in a club mix.   Belle’s laid back and warm vocal supports the story of a relationship that nearly falls apart but once you’re ‘sirius’ about it it will all be fine.  Marry that with images of the warm southern France beaches and the colour of the Mediterranean and “Sirius” goes down easy.  Check it out at the link above.
