Review: Surrounded by piles of plastic bricks and merrily whistling "Everything Is Awesome", Lego Edit opens up his "Sample Bag" and offers up more hush-hush reworks from his seemingly endless collection. As usual, there are plenty of tried-and-tested treats to savour, from the tooled-up house take on Steely Dan classic "Do It Again" that is "Dee-Ly Stan" (see what he did there etc) and the filter-heavy disco-house thrust of "Jungle Track", to the hard-wired loop arrangements and booming bottom end of standout "Jazzy Track" and the sun-kissed afternoon pleasure of "Simply Jazz", a solos-laden romp through soul-jazz pastures tantalizingly tweaked to guarantee dancefloor pleasure.
Review: On his latest expansive collection of tastefully tooled-up scalpel cuts, construction toy enthusiast Lego Edit has turned his attention to the world of Rare Groove. The results are naturally on-point, from the lolloping loops, head-nodding grooves and echoing Curtis Mayfield style vocals of "Supa People", to the densely percussive disco mysticism of "Mondo Tibet", where Indian style strings and earthy vocal grunts rise above some suitably heavy drums. In between you'll encounter such highlights as the hypnotic, filter-heavy disco-house pump of "Funk Family", the sizzling Brazilian carnival celebration that is "A2" and the classic disco bounce of certified peak-time stomper "Love In (Lego Edit Disco Cut)".
Review: Lego Edit is known for his funky vibrant creations, usually centring around breakbeat-ready musical themes coupled with futuristic funk sampling and soulful blends. This release goes by the name 'A Tribute To Afro Funk' and is a fantastic piece of composition, bringing together oldschool soulful vocal choruses, smooth drum rolls and bouncy basslines for an awesome final product. This one also comes complete with the completed instrumental mix, courtesy of Lego Edit.
Review: Lego Edit is Italian Diego Lelli, who has been in overdrive the last year: hammering out a few dozen releases already. Does this guy ever sleep between all the edits and DJing? What's your secret pal? On Dancefloor Edits Hot Barbecue, hear that inspirational Martin Luther King Jr speech over an uplifting lo-slung disco groove that is "Billy Groove" (Lego dub 5 AM). Next up, hear the drummer get wicked on the funk explosion of "Hot Stone" (Lego ReFunk) and finally just to provide some variety: we have got some good ol' fashioned funky R&B in the form of a right classic (spliced to perfection!) for modern audiences on "Link Ollins" (Lego dub). All killer no filler right here kids!
Review: Lego Edit is Italian Diego Lelli who returns to his eponymous edit imprint and two more soulful scorchers on Dancefloor Edits Original Disco Cuts. "Always" is a respectful edit of a certain legend - a wonder of Motown, if you will, and this timeless anthem gets wonderful resplice by Leali here. Next up "Nightlife" (Lego Classic edit) is another disco classic from the late seventies that will appeal to all those lo-slung crusaders out there. We said it last time and it must be stated again that this guy from Bologna has been in overdrive throughout the last year, hammering out a few dozen releases already in 2017. How this guy can ever sleep between all the edits and DJing is anyone's guess: but keep 'em coming pal!
