The Grammy winner puts his own spin on the 1998 classic
Grammy-winning producer and DJ Purple Disco Machine returns with an explosive new remix of Wamdue’s ‘King Of My Castle’, 4th August on Strictly Rhythm.
Having already scored a 2023 Grammy for his remix of Lizzo’s ‘About Damn Time’, the German DJ and producer turns his attention to Wamdue Project’s classic 1998 floorfiller ‘King Of My Castle’. The new version adds a disco stomp and irresistibly funky bassline to the original, breathing new life into that iconic vocal.
Purple Disco Machine continues a jam-packed year which has included a hot streak of singles. This summer alone has brought two club anthems in ‘Paradise’, a collaboration with Sophie And The Giants, and the disco homage ‘Bad Company’, in addition to the Kungs collaboration ‘Substitution’, which already has nearly 50 million Spotify streams.
So ingrained in his identity, Tino Piontek’s artist name Purple Disco Machine is a deliberate homage to his funk hero Prince and the dance flair of Gloria Estefan’s Miami Sound Machine. While the sonic identity of Purple Disco Machine grew up in the clubs of East Germany, where his passion for disco and house flourished, he has since evolved to become an all-encompassing radio and streaming king. A suitable title for an artist with over 1 billion streams and multiple European Airplay Chart toppers across his catalogue with hits such as ‘Hypnotized’, ‘Fireworks’, ‘Dopamine’, and ‘In The Dark’.
Beyond the radio, he has proven to be a club favorite among DJs across the world as the #2 best-selling Beatport Artist of all time with dance floor heaters such as ‘Body Funk’, ‘Dished (Male Stripper)’, ‘Playbox’, and ‘Devil In Me feat Duane Harden & Joe Killing-ton’. A Grammy-winner with a remix of Lizzo’s ‘It’s About Damn Time’, Purple Disco Machine has had huge success with multiple high-profile remixes for the likes of Dua Lipa, Mark Ronson, Foals, Calvin Harris, Sir Elton John & Britney Spears, Fatboy Slim, Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande, Diplo & SIDEPIECE and many more. Proving his passion for the intimacy of the dancefloor the acclaimed producer played more than 80 shows in 2022 across Europe, the United States, and South America, with festival appearances at Coachella, Tomorrowland, and Ushuaia Ibiza. A dedicated performer and a hit-maker extraordinaire, his influence on the global dance scene will be felt for generations to come.
Following up on the success of his recent run of summer anthems, Purple Disco Machine continues to strike gold with this funky ‘King Of My Castle’ remix. 2023 is proving to be a vintage year for the Grammy winner.
