Review: This one just never gets old does it - Todd Terry's club anthem from 1996 that featured the talents of disco heroines Jocelyn Brown and Martha Wash has been a hit on intergenerational dancefloors ever since for good reason. These versions by hot Italian trio Re-Tide are perfect re-adjustments with adequate tweaks for modern dancefloors. Their rendition is a funky and low slung effort that uses that killer hook of the original (of course from the '70's original by Patrick Adams and Ken Morris - respect where it's due) in the background, but blends their tight elements in with some right pizzaz. Comes with a handy radio edit for your convenience.
Review: Defected's ongoing House Masters series should be essential listening for anyone keen to discover more about the recording careers of some of the scene's most iconic producers. Certainly, this latest installment, chronicling NYC legend Todd Terry's finest moments, contains far more hits than misses. At 35 tracks deep, it's a bit of a beast, but features not only all of his best-known productions ("Weekend", "Can You Party", "I'll House You", "Bango (To The Batmobile)", his remix of Everything But The Girl's "Missing"), but also a swathe of lesser-known remixes (A slammin' version of Bizarre Inc's "I'm Gonna Get You"), Dubs (a brilliantly stripped-back version of Hardrive's "Voices Inside My House") and original productions (the hip-house era madness of Black Riot's "Warlock").
