Another great little exclusive edit from Sub Club's Harri for getting the bustle on the dancefloor. In's and out's provided alongside some creative arranging and extending for mixing purposes on this rare gem. All manner of funkin' flautism for 14 days on the download ...

This lad has been knocking out some great edits on the quiet recently. Based in Liverpool where he runs a little night called Playground, he's been perking up our ears here with a varied selection of soulful jams and reworkings. We've even got him up to Glasgow soon for a spot at our night and we're doing the return leg for him the week after. Who says things don't get done over the web!
Here's Andy's reworking of some classic Timmi Thomas. Check his myspace for more of his music.

Released on Salsoul in 81', Logg knew you would and acquired the hands of the man Levan and Leroy Burgess for this classic disco sausage. I placed it on the edit barbecue a while back with a few slices and dubs for our floors.

Continuing with the "thanks to all the fans for the support" vibes going on with the last post, here's some 320Kbps love in the form of one of my first ever re-edits completely overhauled, re-jigged, pimped, souped up, tracked out, (insert other generic term here), for your listening pleasure. It's my favourite 'Scream track, the rare-as-hens-teeth "Screamadelica" (it never made it onto the album of the same name). Originally produced during the the late 80's summer of love by Boys Own chappie Mr Andrew Weatherall (heard of him??), it's got a lovely slow 4/4 kick and early house sensibilities but at 96-odd BPM. For the edit I've tracked it up, speeded it up a bit, added some more kick, and generally set it through the OOFT! mangler so it's ready for noughties DJ action. Enjoy.

Thanks to all who have supported our L.E.S.S. CD over the past week. There's only a few left of the first one through Five20East's store and a small number through Piccadilly Records Manchester (next week). This is the first CD in a series of 4 so don't sleep.
As a token of our appreciation, here are a couple of new reworks at 320kbps. The first is an extented re-imagining of Horace Andy's 'Skylarking' using a few other cheeky bits to make a slightly epic-electric thang. The second is a rework of the superb Michael McDonald track, 'I Keep Forgetting' twisted into that classic west-coast jam by Warren G & Nate Dogg, 'Regulate' (with a mid-tempo groove of course). Two that shouldn't really be touched ... but you know us! Good for getting the heads bobbing anyway ;) 14 days only at 320kbps.

Blood, sweat, tears and a 3rd degree studio tan are the side-effects of working on our new L.E.S.S. Productions CD Forever In Their Debt. It's pretty limited (100 numbered copies) and we've only sent a few out, but support has been strong from heavyweights like Domu (TrebleO), The Unabombers (Electric Chair), 7 Samurai (G.A.M.M.), Chris Duckenfield (SWAG) and more. It was intended as a DJ only promo disc and there are few left - we're selling the remainder through Five20East's online store and also through Piccadilly Records in Manchester (Mid July). The CD has high-quality versions of all the edits. Here's some 128kbp flavour in your ear for 14 days ...

A rework from a while back I found whilst trawling the vaults. It's a well thumbed classic which never seems to go away (probably because fools like me keep editing them). It's short and snappy at 4 mins so don't go for a piss while it's playing.

After the recent lack of posts on here I've started to delve back into my collection to pull out some overlooked, but much loved tracks that I've played over the past few years. First up we've got my favourite remix of a Daft Punk track ever, the wonderful "Wildstyle Edit" by Domenique Torti. Taking the original reel to reel method of editing by chopping up loads of loops and re-arranging the original track rather than doing a completely different song, this is pure deep dancefloor magic straight outta the '03...

Two dusty midtempo numbers from my Deportivo Street Team project. Although the DST stuff is a bit more boshing these days, we still occasionally find time to pitch it down and burn it out. Caught Up In The Stars was released last year on a Refo Recordings compilation and blends some live guitar with some ethereal, electronic swooping and swooshing. Pitched Down House Sound was written 5 years ago and has remained unreleased. It was the inspiration for my new midtempo stuff and is a strange concoction of cut-up horns, old-school piano and squelching electronic skullduggery running in at 11 mins. It was done in one take and I kept none of the parts so it is forever trapped in this ruff draft form.
