While frustratingly overlooked by critics, Sheffield veteran Richard Barratt's debut album under the Crooked Man alias was one of the finest house albums of 2016. Here, DFA has asked a bunch of suitably well-respected producers to give their own spin on tracks from the hot-to-trot set. Ostgut Ton types Barker & Baumecker steal the show with vocal and instrumental remixes of "Fools & Fanatics" that gleefully join the dots between Brown Album-era Orbital, vintage electro, early breakbeat, Chicago acid and piano house. Both sound like anthems in waiting. Elsewhere, DFA stalwart Juan MacLean provides a driving, surprisingly murky rework of nostalgia-driven sing-along "Happiness", while fellow NYC veterans WhateverWhatever give unlikely Northern Soul cover "I'll Be Loving You" a dark, machine-driven, acid-flecked makeover.
