On last week’s episode of the R.O.A.D. Podcast, the crew spoke to DiscoTech‘s Joe Maz and Konflikt. The former Miami DJ/producer duo questioned whether it is a good idea for artists to release new music during the Coronavirus lockdown.
Joe Maz also broke down his approach to creating “big room” remixes.
Watch an excerpt above and the full episode here.

There are numerous remixes of The White Stripes’ 2003 anthem “Seven Nation Army,” but this new one from DiscoTech’s Joe Maz is one of the best in a while. With elements of both future house and trap, the Miami native’s well-crafted rework is a great option for all kinds of sets.

In the summer of 2004, Atlanta singer Ciara burst onto the scene with her Lil Jon-produced hit, “Goodies.” The R&B vixen then followed with another chart-topper, “1, 2 Step,” which featured the one and only Missy Elliot. Now, over a decade later, Miami DJ/producers Joe Maz (of DiscoTech) and Adam Foster have teamed for a future house version of the dance floor classic. Stream their well-crafted remix above and download it below.

DJ/producer Joe Maz has teamed up with fellow Miami native Konflikt to relaunch DiscoTech.
The group was originally comprised of Maz, Gigamesh, and Danny Daze but parted ways in 2010 due to creative differences.
Maz announced the return of DiscoTech in an email newsletter last week:
“In 2013, I asked the absolute most talented DJ I have ever met to fill their large shoes. He goes by the name of Konflikt & has been based out of Miami for years. Over the course of the last few months we have been building a studio and coming up with ideas. The goal is to deliver original music & still continue to produce some remixes. We hope to bridge the gap between the ‘DJ’ & the ‘Artist’.”
To celebrate their relaunch, DischoTech has dropped a progressive house remix of Clean Bandit’s crossover hit, “Rather Be.” The original is currently #32 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and quickly gaining momentum.
Maz’s email also said that they’ve finished several originals which will be unveiled soon.
