House Of Disco

Straight up blistering funk for you today as Rosetta Hightower (Daughter of the Police Academy giant…..I swear) gets a re-rub by Dj XS. This is one of those tracks that’s embedded with a warm fuzzy nostalgia. It sounds like a time and place in music history, when R&B was actually R&B and funk ruled the roost. It’s got it all, big brass, bossy vocals and dramatic refrains.

Ok ok I know, it’s another ‘New Order – Blue Monday’ edit, but don’t be scared this ones pretty good. Coupled with the fact that it is, at time of writing, a Monday in the middle of winter this edit from Luxxury under his XX Edits moniker just feels apt. There are interesting details everywhere in this loopy dubbed out version, and we are teased only once with the vocals, but even his treatment of those is classy.

An edit treasure haul of three beauties for you today as M.Rux marks the spot. Ok, might have overworked that analogy slightly. Anyway, I first heard of this guy when I came across his vinyl release of edits (get yours here) and I have to say I was blown away by the quality or production and the selection of originals he edited. They sound both fresh and sultry in a sea of familiarity and sameness and are up there with some of the best edits I have heard n a long time. He’s very kindly let us give a few away to you so below are three of my personal favourites from the vinyl. To hear more check out his Bandcamp here.

Tom Zé – DOI (M.RUX EDIT)

 

Baden Powell & Vinicius de Moraes – Canto de Ossanha (M.RUX EDIT)

 

Marina Gallardo – Golden Ears (M.RUX EDIT)

 

Slightly left of centre disco today as Gal Kadan crafts an edit from a Noar Shulaim track from the 90’s. Glitchy guitar loops and incomprehensible vocals give way to a invigorating chorus (the best bit). It’s not one of those ones that you will always find a use for but hey, variety is the name of the game.

A rare treat from Dimitri From Paris today as he celebrates a release on Favourite Recordings by giving away an instrumental version (which is my favourite version anyway). Wandering hooky basslines and a barrage of percussion are on the menu and if you need more cowbell after this you need your head checked.
