After a pair of well-received 12" singles on Mad Mats' GAMM imprint, Jazzy Jens pops up on Basic Fingers with a couple of admirably reverential re-edits. The first sees him tackling Mascara's recently re-released, string-laden disco-soul classic "See You In LA", a track featuring early vocals from Luther Vandross. Jens' edit is perfectly pitched, utilizing the repirse outro from a different Mascara track ("Jet Plane Ride") as a thrilling, piano-laden intro. It has "end of night anthem" written all over it. "I Want You", meanwhile, turns another soulful classic into a horn-laden chunk of breezy dancefloor goodness via the addition of some well-judged disco beats.
