The ’Waiting For The Sun’ remix is a pumped up, driving disco monster sure to tear up dancefloors everywhere. The tough disco loops merge with a relentless funked up bassline to create an irresistible groove. Sanjay’s vocal tells of a tripped out wait for the sun to come up which Lawler uses to full effect to create a huge drop. As always when it comes to this preeminent producer, this is a classy remix.
SANJAY is a unique talent. The producer, engineer, guitarist, singer and DJ made his debut release, ‘Initiation’, in 2021 giving the world an initial taste of his core ethos: Music is Medicine. Now residing in the Joshua Tree desert in California, his eclectic mix of acoustic and electronica can be traced back to the deep, dancey sets he span on the playa at Burning Man, and his time mastering acoustic guitar with the Gypsy Kings as they toured the world. Steve Lawler’s remix of ‘Waiting For The Sun’ will shine a deserved light on this special artist ahead of his new album and one-man live show and DJ sets.
