SALSOUL

Those coloured vinyl represses of Salsoul's ace "Re-edit" series continue to land in store with four more classic cuts from NYC edit king Danny Krivit. With over 45 years behind the turntables, if anyone knows what little extra touch a record needs to work on the dancefloor…it’s Danny! For this release we feel the full force of Danny's ecstatic edit of "My Love Is Free", relentless re-rub of Loleatta's "Runaway", precision chop of Ripple's "Victorious" and ballroom ready rework of Salsoul's "Love Break". Disco perfection!

TRACK LISTING

A. Double Exposure - My Love Is Free (Danny Krivit Edit)
B. The Salsoul Orchestra Ft. Loleatta Holloway - Runaway (Danny Krivit Edit)
C. Ripple - Victorious (Danny Krivit Edit)
D. The Salsoul Orchestra - Ooh I Love It (Danny Krivit Edit)

Part one of a new Salsoul Re-edits series launches with four reworks from disco aficionado DimitrI From Paris. Available on vinyl for the very first time, Dimitri adds his deft remix touch to Salsoul favourites from Loleatta Holloway, Inner Life, Love Comitte and Skyy.

Each of these four edits is on the PENG side of things, but it's that Love Committee edit which has done maximum damage for me over the years.

TRACK LISTING

A. Loleatta Holloway - Love Sensation (Dimitri From Paris DJ Friendly Classic Re-Edit)
B. Inner Life - Moment Of My Life (Dimitri From Paris DJ Friendly Classic Re-Edit)
C. Love Committee - Law & Order (Dimitri From Paris DJ Friendly Classic Re-Edit)
D. Skyy - Here's To You (Dimitri From Paris New DJ Friendly Classic Re-Edit)

Candido

Jingo / Thousand Finger Man

Candido Cameron was a Cuban percussion maestro who had played with luminaries such as Dizzy Gillespie, Buddy Rich and Count Basie throughout his illustrious musical career which started in 1952. Fast forward to 1979 and Candido finds himself caught up in the disco boom that had engulfed his adopted New York City. Feeling he could add his trademark quick-fire conga and bongo playing to disco's straight 4x4 syncopated rhythm he cut some records with legendary NYC label Salsoul. The fruits of this partnership were two full length LPs and a handful of 12" singles that changed the face of disco. "Jingo" is an all-time classic disco record, sampled, edited, re-configured and coveted by too many names to mention! It's a killer funky disco version of master Nigerian drummer Olatunji's 1969 percussion suite of the same name, remade Salsoul style. Over on the flip we have one of the deepest disco records of all time; "Thousand Finger Man" a testament to Candido's percussion prowess and a spacey, beautiful voyage that has left more than an indelible mark on modern house music, cited as a huge influence by artists such as Masters At Work. Essential stuff basically, every collection should have a copy!

Following on from his stellar record store day 2017 double-pack, Dimitri is back with another clutch of indispensable disco edits from his impressive archive for the legendary Salsoul label. Any self-respecting DJ or Disco-lover will be brimming over with excitement upon looking at this impressive selection of tracks, all respectfully and lovingly tweaked by Disco-Dim. Salsoul Orchestra's "Ooh I Love It (Love Break)" kicks things off, a true blue classic, just gently touched in all the right places for extended pleasure. Cooing vocals, girl talk, infectious bass AND the "This is a journey into sound" chimes - what more could you possibly want. Next up is Skyy's total anthem "First Time Around", a classic Garage groover, previously flipped by Cosmo V and Spandex Ste. Dimitri dodges his predecessors' drugged up vibe and gets into dub mode, upping the ante with choice delays and cool loops! Essential stuff. On the flipside The Jammers' "Be Mine Tonight" is another massive Garage smasher, and here Dimitri almost edges Shep Pettibone's OG mix into the Boogie stratosphere. Hydraulic bass reverberated through your cranium, synths whir and buzz and cowbells ring on for days - this is a bona fide dancefloor destroyer! If all that weren't enough, this double-pack finishes is with one of Dim's most sought after reworks, "Just As Long As I Got You" by Love Committee. Beloved by both myself and Dave Walker, this deep, dark and emotional disco stomer has it all - searing guitar solos, screeching strings, big brass and a rhythm section to die for not to mention the most eyes-closed, head shaking, hands aloft heartbreak vocals you'll ever here. Meet me under the mirror ball y'all!
