I Get Lifted - Inc. Todd Terje Edit

Oooh Weee, something special from the TK Disco vaults here as the Miami label unleashes the underground, formerly unofficial Todd Terje edit of KC & The Sunshine Band's "I Get Lifted", backed with the original version of course. The original sees the unparalleled disco troupe reimagining George McCrae's funk soul classic with a little more groove and some borderline Balearic guitar riffing. Terje applies some classic edit pressure on his rework, pushing the vocal adlibs front and foremost into the killer loop which forms the introduction to the track. Additional percussion hits hard as we drop into the main body of the track and then Terje just lets that shit roll on and on until the dancefloor are caught up in a mindless boogie.

I'm Your Boogie Man - Inc. Todd Terje Edit

The second of two TK treats this week, this 10" sees the long awaited official release of Todd Terje's classic edit of KC & The Sunshine Band's "I'm Your Boogie Man", backed with the stone cold original of course. This KC & The Sunshine Band classic has been written into dancefloor DNA over the past forty years, with everyone from Greg Wilson to Armand Van Helden pitching a little bit of the irrestible groove to make their productions pop. Superb percussion, a killer piano and bass duet, divine rhythm guitar and hot brass all support the super cool funk vocal, making for an all time disco funk classic. The flipside sees Terje doing his thing with aplomb reworking the track with the kind of floor filling, set killing arrangement you'd expect from the Norse god of the dancefloor. If you're after white noise filters, disco donks and gimmicky fx then take a walk buddy; our man Terje keeps it classy with a good old fashion extension that'll get the crowd working overtime. 


After teasing us with the super loopy house pump of LNTG's "Why Can't We Live Together" a couple of years back, TK return to the legendary Timmy Thomas to treat us to a three track reissue of full scale fire. Rocking the spot for the full length of the A-side is the Baldelli approved afro-cosmic smash "Africano", a perfect fusion of relentless bass, spaced out sequencing, trippy guitar work and chanted vocals, all served over a sizzling disco rhythm. MASSIVE! Over on the flip we get the percussive, organ led groove of "Funky Me" and the original mix of the aforementioned "Why Can't We Live Together". If that doesn't sound like a must have, I don't know what does...!


STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: So, everyone (including Drake) loves B2 bomb 'Why Can't We Live Together', but it's always been the huge Afro-cosmic powerhouse "'Africano' that's rocked the spot for me. Essential!

John Tropea / Johnny Harris

Livin' In The Jungle / Odyssey

This TK Disco replica 12" features two of the most unlikey classics from their roster. Master guitarist and session player John Tropea recorded several LPs for TK, one of which yielded the confirmed Cosmic classic "Livin' In The Jungle" (this version was mixed by John Luongo), while British TV and film composer Johnny Harris scored big around the turn of the decade with his synth wizardry on "Odyssey".
