One for those who like their disco loopy and bumpin', as Stockholm-based studio hermit ChangED delivers some delicious dancefloor thrills on the back of a cheeky Love Unlimited Orchestra sample. While dubby, sax-laden flipside "Tiden Bara Gar" - an illicit rework of a Swedish jazz-funk classic - is a winner, it's the Barry White and co-sampling A that really hits the heights. Utilising the same sweet, atmospheric approach as Matthew Kyle and The Revenge, ChangED weaves vocal and horn loops around a thick, low-slung groove that emphasizes boogie bass and party-hearty crowd vocals. It's tastefully done, with enough subtlety in the production to impress both heads and punters alike.
This two-tracker from Subsoil offers an interesting approach to the edit-not-edit genre. Instead of collecting together a bunch of different edits, they've decided to get two producers - in this case Changed and Editorial veteran Disco Tech - to rework the same (uncredited) disco/soul original. Changed is up first, offering a slick, sultry and occasionally sensuous interpretation that sits somewhere between the head-nodding disco/house of Matthew Kyle and the fluid disco of the original. Disco Tech's version, meanwhile, takes some time to build before letting the original chorus and strings take over. His use of drops and FX is, in particular, excellent.
