Beatport Hype Top 100 charting producer Martial Simon has a knack for transforming all-time classics into jewels of the modern dancefloor, and it comes as no surprise that his latest interpolation of “A Little Respect” is quickly becoming an instant hit.
Simon’s new age touch on “A Little Respect” introduces lighter pitch-perfect tenors in lieu of original vocalist Andy Bell’s iconic falsetto. This new rendition takes Erasure’s catchy lyrics and adds an electro house groove which turns this 80’s synth-pop anthem into an EDM main stage contender.
“The original was one of the very few pop songs that can be considered perfect, so why not reinvent them with a modern twist. This is a feel good interpolation that can rock a dance floor.”

The NY-based veteran DJ is still riding the waves of his successful track “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” which has already amassed over 200K streams across all platforms, and received airplay support from stations like Dash Radio and Party 105.1 FM.
Since expanding his brand beyond his former moniker as DJ Martial, he continues to develop his own distinct sound combining his love of 80s new wave and synth pop with deep electro. His previously released funky nu-disco cover of “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” became an international summer anthem just in time for nightclubs to reopen.
