10. November 2018 DMC World - Fire (Dr Packer Remix)
Lenny Fontana certainly is a guy who could call himself a House legend but anybody who knows him in person will agree that he is a person, who is very down to earth and thankful for any support his productions get. For me this is the right approach as numerous examples have proved that haughtiness always leads to the wrong way. Having scored chart success with anthems like ‘Chocolate Sensation’ or the Duane Harden sung ‘What U Need’ as Powerhouse, the man knows how to transform a song from an Underground hit right up to mainstream. Lenny beside the Garage and US House productions he is mostly known for, has always had a special relationship with Disco, not only because he grew with the sounds as a young man, but his aspiration of knowing that there would be no House Music without Disco.
So over the years, Lenny Fontana touched the genre here and there and his brand new offering which originally came out on is own Karmic Power Records label but has been snapped up by Andy Williams’ Midnight Riot imprint with new mixes for full release, is a perfect example of Lenny producing a record that easily could have been released 1978. We all know not many people are able to execute it the way he does, but as Glitterbox sensation Dr Packer has been commissioned to rework ‘Fire’, this might be the cream on top of it. Extending the arrangement with his trademark drums, filtered breakdowns and full of intense peak time madness, Greg Packer has turned the West End Records vocalist Shirley Lites vocalised tune into a modern Disco anthem.
I wish more of those records would be produced and necessarily bought, it certainly would make the world a little more happy!

Studio 54 heatweave
New York legend Lenny Fontana is totally on fire and bringing back the heat. When Lenny wrote the Studio 54-inspired string arrangement for „Fire“, he knew it was going to be huge - but he needed the right vocalist to carry it to the next level.
With that in mind he reached out to the one and only Shirley Lites, knowing she would whip the dancefloor into a disco frenzy. 10/10

13. JULY 2018 LENNY FONTANA & SHIRLEY LITES FIRE
A scorching track made for the Disco Revolution that is happening right now. FIRE is an original production from New York's Lenny Fontana with vocalist Shirley Lites. Capturing the spirit of Studio 54 with rich string orchestration, warm horns, a driving disco beat and Shirley’s powerful diva vocals FIRE references the dreams of the disco era and recreates them for the dancefloors of today.
Hailing from Philadelphia, the city of Brotherly Love and Disco, Shirley is a supremely powerful vocalist and started singing at the age of 6 at her local Sunday School and the Philadelphia Girls city choir. At age 16, she sang with local bands boosting her to a professional level and landing her many background sessions in recording studios with the likes of Dexter Wansel, Billy Paul and others. Her first commercial record, titled "Heat you up/ Melt you down" on West End Records set the world stage for her future success.
Lenny´s love for Disco and the scene shines through in this track. Having played at the legendary Studio 54 as well as producing the revered Legends of the Dancefloor Paradise Garage retrospective series for BBC no one is placed better than Lenny to bring Disco back in an original and fresh format.

02. FEBRUARY 2018 LENNY FONTANA PRES. THE STARLETTS - ON HIS MIND
On the back of Lenny Fontana introducing ‘The Starletts’ to the house masses, Karmic Power Records kicks off 2018 with the first of 2 remix packages of their classic house track ‘On His Mind’. The happyharry Remix really gets things rolling with his ‘hat tip’ to the old skool, grooving baseline and broken down vocal hook licks jump in and out, leading to a hammond organ hook reminiscent of ‘Congress-40 Miles’, this remix builds and breaks using a verse as the main hook in the track, giving an interesting perspective on a very popular track. Danilo De Santo turns up the heat on his remix, opening the track with a slightly deeper vibe. A sweet soulful baseline allowing the full vocal to drive the track, guiding you to a break down chorus, where the piano riff from the original version rings through giving a real lift, and merging the two together, an all-round welcomed addition to a burgeoning package.

Darren Sains & Dashi - Come On Let´s Go - Official YouTube Video
"Come on Let's Go" is a song that celebrates that feeling of letting the music take control of your core via the means of Vinyl, celebrating the timeless value of the 45, the 12 inch, and EP. Long Island Producer Darren Sains makes his debut here on Karmic with a strong singer he collaborated with named Dashi. A strong hook and great vocal is the recipe on this. To the bonus NYC House Legend Lenny Fontana adds a heavy hand in the remix to give it that twist. There is a little something for everyone.
Lenny Fontana Pres. The Starletts - On His Mind Official Youtube Video
The Starletts became best friends when they met in Greece in 2008. Drag artist Miss Diamond and singer Wiveca bonded over a mutual love of classic house, 90’s soul, rich harmonies with a memorable lyric, and it wasn't long before these two gals hit the studio and penned the incredibly infectious 'On His Mind', this led to their collaboration with New York house legend Lenny Fontana and his imprint Karmic Power Records. Label head Lenny Fontana returns to the studio to add his magic touch to this beaut of a track, his 'NYC House Mix' nudging it to a classic in the making. Uplifting horn section, chugging bass line and scattered rhythms give the powerful vocals a more peak time feel, and will have the crowd kicking their heels on the dance floor.
