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.
