Some seriously sweet ass edits again courtesy of the discerning Discoalition authority, a label based in Bordeaux (France) and managed by head honcho SEEN ON TV. First up A Digital Needle takes the razor to Bruni Pagan's 1979 digger's delight "Fantasy", UK heroes Imagination get an ergonomic edit too, but for DJ use only with Rare Cuts' version of their 1981 classic "So Good". Finally "One And Only" by Coutel has those feel good, summertime, soul disco vibes with a loop taken from a particular classic but we don't kiss and tell on this one: keep diggin'!
Disco Tech's re-edit label DiscoDat has earned itself a strong reputation due to its relentless stream of high quality reworks. Here, on the Metropolis EP, they look towards Fritz Lang for some inspiration, but beyond the titles and cover, the mysterious Rare Cuts stick to '70s grooves. There are four tracks to immerse yourself in, with our favourites being the smooth and jazzy soul ballad "Sweetest Pain" and the suspended tension of tight and funky space jam "Get It Up".
Here we have a collection of steamy soul numbers to serve as the perfect soundtrack to the latest heatwave. An already nasty 70s sleazy funk groove is beefed up into a muscle-bound grind-athon on "Summertime Groovin". "Holding On", meanwhile, is a floaty slice of super-feminine 80s soul. Elsewhere its tough funk licks, sassy vocals and lots of filter on "I Didn't Take" and string-laden soul bearing on impassioned closer, "Watcha Doin?". Never did the summer sound so good!
