Global superstar DJ Cedric Gervais and rising talent Franklin team up with the legendary Nile Rodgers to unveil a reworking of the CHIC 1978 iconic dance smash hit ‘Everybody Dance’.
The new version includes brand new re-recorded guitar parts from the three-time Grammy award winner and global icon Rodgers.
Sometimes the best things in life happen in entirely unexpected ways. When Cedric Gervais collaborated with Franklin, you already had an intriguing proposition. Gervais is a global icon of the house music scene with a Grammy Award to his credit for his remix of Lana Del Rey’s ‘Summertime Sadness’ as well as 3.5 million monthly listeners at Spotify.
Listen to ‘Everybody Dance (feat. Nile Rodgers)’ by Cedric Gervais x Franklin on the Official Premier League Training playlist on Spotify.
Meanwhile, Franklin is a multifaceted one to watch, having remixed Mabel, James Arthur and AJ Mitchell, topped the UK Dance Chart and collaborated on Karen Harding x Digital Farm Animals, which was highlighted as Radio 1’s Tune of the Weekend. Cedric discovered Franklin’s early remixes and work with Digital Farm Animals, and reached out to collaborate with one of the scene’s most exciting new underground talents.
Among music legends, Nile Rodgers is truly exceptional. He amplifies his legacy as a composer, producer, arranger and guitarist by constantly traversing new musical terrain and successfully expanding the boundaries of popular music.
As the co-founder of CHIC and the Chairman of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, Rodgers pioneered a musical language that generated chart-topping hits like ‘Le Freak,’ (the biggest selling single in the history of Atlantic Records) and sparked the advent of hip-hop with ‘Good Times’.
Nile’s work in the CHIC Organization and his productions for artists like David Bowie, Diana Ross, and Madonna have sold over 500 million albums and 75 million singles worldwide.
