What a way to start a re-edit label: Dennis Parker (aka Wade Nichols)'s disco classic, "Like An Eagle"! Taking its time to revel in its own greatness, this hazy sunkissed classic now spans over ten minutes! Elsewhere Marathon's Ben Becker also tackles sizzling '70s funk (Tony Danza Experience), The O'Jays classic "I Love Music" and Quincy Jones' immortal "Ai No Corrida". An impressive label debut.
Having seduced all and sundry with their sleek nu-disco re-edits, ever popular duo Jay & Dee (aka Venice Beach) are turning up the heat and delivering their debut LP. All the elements that have helped make their records hip are present and correct: chic bass, clap along er, claps, and excellent taste in samples. Highlights include the wayward bass-a-thon of "No More Kitch", the mid-80s freestyle soul of "High" and in particular, the rubbery sleaze-beat of "Deep Dance". Tres bien!
