Review: By now, we should all know what to expect from each new album in Joey Negro's "Remixed With Love" series, namely fantastic new revisions of classic disco, boogie, soul, electro and jazz-funk classics created using the original multi-track tapes. This third volume naturally contains a few inspired revisions of well-known cuts - a riotous take on The Fatback Band's "Do The Bus Stop", an astonishing, dubbed-out version of the Temptations' "Law of the Land" and a soaring, life-affirming rearrangement of Patrice Rushen's "Never Give You Up" included - but also some suitably smart tweaks of lesser-known gems. These include a sublime revision of the APX's '80s gem "Loose Yourself To The Groove" and an insatiable take on Mass Production's "Shante" full of jammed-out electric piano solos and rubbery electric bass.
Review: Absolutely massive package of disco gold from the man like Dimitri here as he's entrusted with the master tapes of Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards' most iconic and influential songs and told to do his unmistakable thang. From the original Chic materials to Sister Sledge via Norma Jean Wright, Dimitri takes the blueprint that founded every dance beat that's followed in the last 40 years and gives them a just polish, slight extension and just that little bit of extra dancefloor spice for today's floors. Perfect for everything from home listening to massive arena gigs.
