After much success and various collaborations with the world’s top musicians, a popular production duo PlayOne (Darko Juranovic D’Knock DJ Fresh Jay) joined forces with their long-term collaborator, producer Zvonimir Dusper, and achieved the most praiseworthy cooperation ever by remixing the new single for the reunited legendary British band Simply Red, ‘The Ghost Of Love’!
As PlayOne have recently announced on their social networks that they finally received a call they had been waiting for a long time, it was apparent that a collaboration with the mega popular pop band, which this year celebrates 30 years since their first album “Picture Book”, is the crown of their career. Simply Red have sold over 50 million albums so far and left behind a whole series of hits such as ‘Holding Back The Years’, ‘Something Got Me Started’, ‘Fairground’, ‘Stars’,’Money’s Too Tight (To Mention)’. After a long break, the band has recently released a new album “Big Love”, produced by a legendary Grammy award winning music producer – Andy Wright.
It is Andy who took credit for the collaboration of PlayOne and Zvonimir Dusper with Simply Red, while the executive producer of this project is PlayOne’s long-term collaborator Petra Crnetić for Svijet Produkcije (Production World ). On April 24, just over a month before the release of Simply Red’s new album “Big Love”, Andy gave a call to PlayOne that Simply Red was reforming again and that they were interested in PlayOne’s remix of their new single “The Ghost of Love”. Not hiding their enthusiasm, D’Knock, DJ Fresh Jay and Z. Dusper a.k.a. Rei Noel made a remix within a record time and soon after Andy Wright, members of the band and their management listened to it, PlayOne got a confirmation that “this was it”!
The original version of the single “The Ghost of Love” was first aired on July 8 on BBC Radio 2, and its global edition, including PlayOne’s remix, is expected very soon.
