FRESH: ‘Turn Your World Around’ – Bimbo Jones featuring Thelma Houston

DJ’s Bimbo Jones team up with disco legend Thelma Houston for “Turn Your World Around”

With over 80 No.1’s across the US and UK, the production duo of Marc JB and Lee Dagger known as Bimbo Jones have been dropping hit records for over twenty years. For the duo’s latest single, they’ve collaborated with Grammy® winning soul and R&B singer Thelma Houston to deliver “Turn Your World Around”. “Turn Your World Around” has been a few years in the making from the production team. Originally written in London with the help of Sharon Woolf (of “Sweet Like Chocolate” fame) who provides backing vocals, the track was developed into a monster House track with the addition of Thelma Houston’s vocals.

Bimbo Jones’ nostalgic disco-house production perfectly complements Houston’s energetic vocal performance, creating a dance anthem that feels both vintage and modern at the same time. For over twenty years, Bimbo Jones have been producing and remixing big name artists including Lady Gaga, Rihanna, P!nk, Ke$ha, Kylie, Kelis, The Killers, Tinchy Stryder, Katy Perry, Alexis Jordan and working with the likes of Sergio Mendes, Cyndi Lauper, Beverley Knight, KC and Leo Sayer. Now they’ve added another legendary artist to their long list of collaborators with Thelma Houston.

After decades of performing, Thelma Houston continues to celebrate her long and outstanding career and shows no signs of slowing down. She scored her first No.1 hit in 1977 with her recording of “Don’t Leave Me This Way”, which won the Grammy® for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance. Now with more than 23 albums over her career and appearances from Tokyo to Las Vegas to Paris, London and beyond, this Diva regularly brings audiences to their feet with her dynamic, captivating show. In the heyday of disco music, Houston’s vigorous and poignant vocals stood out among her contemporaries. With the help of Bimbo Jones’ production on the ‘Disco Strings Mix’ of “Turn Your World Around”, listeners are transported back to that era as Houston shows off her vocal prowess.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
