Adriano Celentano - Prisencolinensinainciusol (2004 DJ Ro Remix)

Prisencolinensinainciusol (2004 DJ Ro Mix) 8'11 134 BPM

This unusual song was recorded by Adriano Celentano in 1973. It combined disco, rap and pseudo-English lyrics that some pretended at the time was Esperanto. You can find the lyrics by doing a Google search or make up your own!

It must be one of the earliest songs utilizing a loop as the base of the whole song. I always thought would make a great dance tracks. I am not alone, a couple of remixes have been made over the years. Here's is mine.

You can listen to it here.

And here is the video from RAI UNO with other Italian star singer Rafaella Cara. Gotta love the choreography with the mirror walls!

ABBA - The Visitors (2006 Remix by Disco Intensity)

The Visitors (Revisited by Disco Intensity) 7'01 132 BPM

I always thought this would make a great remix, the hook has that "anthemy" feel that really inspired me. The lyrics are a bit creepy but here they are reduced to a minimum.

This is the first time that I use the name "Disco Intensity" on a remix. I think I want to use this as my trade mark.

Madonna - Hung Up (2005 DJ Ro Remix)

Madonna featuring ABBA
Hung Up (DJ Ro Mix) 8'29 130 BPM

Being a big fan of ABBA, I just could not let the Madonna get away with ripping off one of the biggest bands of the 20th century without reacting. So "I had" to make a mash-up honoring the original song. So here it is. I got good feedback from DJs who played it as well as from many friends and unknown listeners.
