Over the last two decades, countless produdcers have sampled or remixed Marlena Shaw's "Woman of the Ghetto", with St Germain famously using it as the basis for jazz-house classic "Rose Rouge". Only last month, it was re-shaped into a chunk of Balearic hip-hop bliss by Akshin Alizadeh on a fine 7-inch single. Now, Polish big guns Catz 'n' Dogz get their chance to re-imagine it for 21st century house dancefloors. The main "Remix" that kicks off proceedings is particularly potent, as the long-serving duo lace snippets of Shaw's vocal over a jaunty but driving, stab-heavy groove before unleashing an avalanche of mind-altering acid lines. The alternative "Beat Mix", which as the name suggests is all about densely layered percussion and sweat-soaked peak-time fun, is also superb.
