I have always loved the disco of Johan Agebjörn and his work with Sally Shapiro. For those that don't know Sally Shapiro, check out her albums that Johan Agebjörn wrote and produced:

Disco Romance: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disco_Romance
My Guilty Pleasure: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Guilty_Pleasure

And the remix albums:

Remix Romance Vol. 1: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remix_Romance_Vol._1
Remix Romance Vol. 2: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remix_Romance_Vol._2

Let's hope it's connected to something substantial. Relentless is my favourite album of theirs due to lack of filler. It would be great to have a remastered heavyweight triple vinyl re-issue aping the design of the promo set. May of course not be an officially commissioned re-edit. Loads of DJs/artists produce their own edits for playing out. On a related note wonder what the PSB edit of Free by Ultra Name was like
Still waiting to hear the Adam Freeland, Manhattan Clique and Axwell mixes of Integral.

He has since claimed that it is not official, and he's just noodling around with the track.

Boo.

First post is missing a vital detail, the tweet includes an audio clip.
I was looking at the post for a while and thinking about the possibilities. Like maybe something really big is coming, but the clip shows otherwise.

In the short video we can hear a Relentless' "The Man Who Has Everything" with a couple of lazy additional elements.
It doesn't sound like the original STEMS are being used. This is nothing more than a fan bootleg remix.

Yeah that's what I thought.

Me too!😁 I wrote about them (her) here when Disco Romance came out. Jackie, Jackie and He Keeps Me Alive are amazing, mesmerizing songs in particular! I was hoping PSB would have her on vocals on of their tracks. :pray:

They've uploaded their remix now.

To me this is the worst kind of remix, barely sounds different from the original and just has some extra elements on top.

The works of Paul Manning, Cristian Thomas and Blade Mixes are much more significant.
I've never heard of Johan Agebjörn or Sally Shapiro so maybe I'm missing the point, but they're total nobodies anyway.
