That Needs An Edit is a new project from York-based disco enthusiasts Brunswick and Pete Le Freq. A whole load of stuff you know, reworked and rebuilt in their own style and appear for London-based Midnight Riot here, with their edit of a certain soul classics on "When You Gonna Call" and "Backyard" respectively, which are really uplifting. "The Way I Feel" is more on the disco tip while "Dub Me Good" takes the razor to Beats International's version of their 1991 hit/cover "Dub Be Good To Me" which ain't too bad either.
The Alpaca Edits camp are back with Anything To Stay Up. Stevie Wonder's classic "Love's Light In Flight" (known here as "Acid Paradise") gets a re-rub and is almost as good as that great one by Soul Clap a few years ago. There's some Salsoul Orchestra sounding big band disco on "Sweet Sensation" And they're not wrong: That Needs An Edit! Chic's "Soup For One" gets a re-splice on "Mojo Soup"; now that definitely needed an edit!
The next digital EP from Masterworks Music comes from 'That Needs An Edit' lads Pete Le Freq and Jon Baker-Hood (Alpaca Edits) with five quality disco grooves. "Nites Of Disco" features a familiar hook that those in the know surely will notice. This is a clever edit of one properly funky and lo-slung groove. A slow and sensual deep disco joint follows, that is quite possibly an edit of a certain pop king on "Let Me Show You". Elsewhere "Grover's Magic" is indeed the title track and on this one they've borrowed from yet another all time classic: no guesses here! Finally "By Any Other Name" takes things into slo-mo territory on this much needed chill and late night number - for lovers to get sexy on the dancefloor! Their aforementioned Alpaca Edits is a seriously hot label at the moment, that has had some releases by top names such as Dr. Packer, Andy Buchan, RockNRolla Soundsystem and the charmingly titled C Da Afro.
