German native Tino Piontek aka Purple Disco Machine got his start as far back as 2009 with his Deep Funk branded Disco House music project.
He appeared on my radar in 2013 with the release of the #1 Beatport Deep House track “My House.” From there, it was a slow build of originals and collaborations featuring some of the funkiest House Music tunes. Shortly thereafter, PDM was an in-demand producer for the likes of Jamiroquai, New Order, Claptone, Faithless, Seeb, Ekkah, L’Tric, Shapeshifters, Hercules & Love Affair (a personal favorite), and Sigma with Paloma Faith; many of which appear in this set.
PDM has had a stellar 2018. His rework of the 90’s techno camp classic “Male Stripper” by Man 2 Man which includes one of Loleatta Holloway’s classic adlibs has gone on to be a massive success this year. From underground to mainstream clubs, you’ve no doubt heard various iterations of his “Dished (Male Stripper)” on Spotify and on dancefloors throughout the year. In fact, the song will end up on our Year End Best in Dance series.
PDM does NOT have a signature style, which would allow the listener to be able to say “that’s definitely…” which is a good thing. He’s fully adept at adapting his brand of disco and funk to the songs he’s given, allowing them to shine brighter on the dance floor. Whether it’s NuDisco, Deep House, Classic House or Indie Dance, PDM creates the grooves that make you wanna dance!
It’s not unlike Party Favorz to recognize up and coming talent in our Legacy series for those DJ’s/producers that are on the track to superstardom. By no means is his tribute meant to indicate the end of his career, as he’s only getting started. I expect bigger things from him in the coming years. Hey Madonna, if you’re reading this, tap this man for your next album!
It is my greatest pleasure to honor Purple Disco Machine with this tribute to his building legacy. Cheers to a future of more foot-stomping, booty-shaking, crowd-pleasing magic! ENJOY!
