Playlist of the Week: Joyce Muniz
Playlist of the Week: Joyce MunizJune 1, 2022
Brazilian house and techno selector Joyce Muniz shares the sounds that have been rocking her dance floors lately for Beatport’s Playlist of the Week.
I am very happy to curate the Beatport weekly playlist. This playlist contains music that I have been playing lately on my gigs or my radio shows. You’re gonna hear some music from friends and artists that I admire and also some music from my own catalogue. Some of the tunes are new and some of the tunes are old.
My DJ mixes are always very diverse between house, acid, electro and dark disco. Also my productions go through different genres. If a track touches my heart, I don’t think about how old it is or what kind of genre it is, I go with the flow of the quality of the sound and the energy it brings.
Alinka Feat. Robert Owens – Midnight Ride (Joyce Muniz Remix) [HE.SHE.THEY.]
The first track of my list is my latest remix for my dear friend Alinka featuring the house music legend Robert Owens. The remix is very different from my usual productions. I am happy that the remix got so many friends. The remix came out last month on HE.SHE.THEY.
Luke Brancaccio & Gai Barone – Brokheimer (Renato Cohen Remix) [Renaissance Records]
The new remix from Renato Cohen for Luke Brancaccio & Gai Barone is awesome. Renato has been a very important figure of the Brazilian electronic music scene for decades. He is not only a great producer but also a great DJ.
Joyce Muniz – Crystalline [Exploited]
The third track of my list is a tune from my own catalogue. “Crystalline” came out during the crazy days of the pandemic when all the clubs were closed. I couldn’t believe that tune got a lot of support from great DJs even though the club was closed. This tune became a very important and special reference of my productions and I’m happy to see DJs playing “Crystalline” in Clubs now after a year after the release.
Redshape – Release Me (Base Mix) [Running Back]
The fourth track on my list is a pick from the latest EP from Redshape which came out on Running Back early this month. The whole EP is great. It’s been a while since Redshape released new stuff. I am a huge fan of his productions. His new EP is a must have.
O.N.O – Days Of Past [Exploited]
O.N.O is a producer duo from Paris (Nathalie and Rudy) who have gotten my attention since their first release on Exploited back in 2020. I really like their style. Their latest single, ‘’Days of Past,’’ is very nice and very well produced.
Romain FX – Convention Of Love बॉलीवुड रेव [Polari Records]
“Convention Of Love बॉलीवुड रेव” is such amazing tune, which came out on Cormac’s imprint Polari Records. This tune became one of my favourite openers. I love the way Romain Placed the Indian vocals and the acid line after the main break…Wow what a great combination.
Kungs, Boys Noize – Fashion [Universal Music Division Island Def Jam]
Fashion is such a great tune you can mix in all kinds of sets, disco, house, acid. Alex (Boys Noize) knows how to do it right. He is one of my favourite producers since ages and definitely one of the most important references for me.
Captain Mustache & Chicks On Speed – Good Weather Girl (Joyce Muniz Remix) [Permanent Vacation]
Captain Mustache is a young talented producer that has been making a lot of noises with his quality productions. We became virtual friends during the pandemic. One day he called me to ask if I would like to remix his tracks featuring Chick On Speed. Of course I said yes. Chicks On Speed is a legendary electro band that was very important for my career as a female artist. It was an honour to remix this tune.
Secret Factory – Hashen Tashen (TERR Remix) [Secret Fusion]
This remix by my dear friend TERR is awesome. It came out a couple of years ago, but it is still super fresh and works very well. She did a great production on this one.
Sandy B – Make the World Go Round (Deep Dish Round the World Remix) [Champion Records]
This remix by Deep Dish, aka Dubfire and Sharam, came out in 1997. The first time I listened to it was on the radio and I fell in love with the vibe and energy of this tune. It took me a few years to find this tune on vinyl. It’s a timeless one that’s why I have been closing my sets lately with this jam. It is sunny and positive.
