Freddy Ready For New Natisse Release

// August 8th, 2012 // News

A legendary New York DJ who has re-mixed Justin Timberlake, J-Lo, Adele and even Frank Sinatra has turned his attention to an unknown female singer from Watford.

Freddy Bastone started his DJ career at iconic New York club Danceteria in the 80s before spending the last three decades producing and remixing some of the biggest names in pop, dance and rock – from Radiohead and Rod Stewart to Missy Elliot and the Pet Shop Boys.

And now he’s remixed a new single by Natisse – otherwise known as 22-year-old Natalie Shedden, who works at a north London gym as a fitness instructor.

The single – Keep The Faith – is an anthemic electro pop track which features former Number One singer Spoonface, who topped the UK charts in the Noughties as the face and voice of Black Legend with Barry White cover You See The Trouble With Me.

And it also pays homage to iconic Clash track London Calling – which is what initially attracted Freddy.

He explains: “I was sent some demos from the UK earlier this year, and as a massive Clash fan Natisse’s original version of the single jumped out at me. London is obviously the centre of the world this year, and I really liked the UK Urban vibe in the track, which is why I decided to get involved.

“I never normally remix unknown acts, but I did a bit of homework on Natisse and can definitely see she’s got what it takes – hopefully the single will be a hit and we can work together more in the future.”

Natisse has previously featured in anti-music piracy campaign Support The Music on behalf of the BPI, which saw her appear on Radio 1 Newsbeat, 1Xtra and 6 Music, plus BBC Newsround and BBC Asian Network – while a dubstep remix of a previous Natisse track has had nearly 0.5m Views on YouTube.

She added: “Freddy has a stellar CV, having remixed some incredible names down the years, so it was an honour to have him involved with the single.”

The new Freddy Bastone remix, together with the Keep The Faith, is on YouTube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCwxrLaruGk.

Keep The Faith is distributed by Nova, and will be available from all leading digital download stores from August 12. A new Freddy Bastone podcast on National Public Radio starts next week.
