Defected:Copyright Feat Donae’o – My Desire (Jullian Gomes Remix)

Defected Records

A few months ago veteran MC, Donae’O joined forces with Defected Records ’ powerhouse production duo Copyright for a deep house groove called “My Desire” -a deep seven minute electro thump layered with synths and hand claps that drop into heads down territory in the choruses that showcase his singing talent. There’s no doubt that this is a hit.

Even more interesting, Defected released a brand new remix of the track by one of the most promising young South African producers on the house music scene, Jullian Gomes. He added some swing to the beat and subtle loops to Donae’O’s vocals to give the track a chilled vibe but still keeping it rooted in the deep house sound.

Donae’O came onto the scene as a teenager in the early aughts with his, now classic, UK Garage anthems “Falling” and “My Philosophy(Bounce).” More recently he’s released tracks like “Move To Da Gyal Dem”, “Party Hard” and “African Warrior”, causing a stir in the UK funky scene. There’s no dispute that he’s one of the UK’s top vocalists, who’s both an MC and a singer.
