There’s a funny story behind this record: basically a famous disco producer/arranger had a falling out with the legendary label he helped build (a falling out which happened to coincide with house music blowing up in Europe), so he made some housey soundalike re-recordings of some of his famous backing tracks from said disco label. Anyway, I took the best part from all the different mixes and dubbed it out into something a little more tracky that can work in today’s DJ sets…

Sometimes I’ll make an edit to fix a flaw in a song; other times a song is absolutely perfect, but it’s been played so much that you need a new perspective on it. This absolute classic Chicago house tune is in the latter category. It was already a weird track, but I made it weirder (maybe too weird?) I’ve seen this slay on the right dancefloor, but it will seriously scare off the normals.

I used this edit in a recent mixtape I made, and somebody asked me about it, so I’m giving it away here!

So I cut it up and stripped it down to just the drums, a piano, and some chanting.
