Week 53: Work Your Body

“Work Your Body (Chrissy Edit)” β€” DOWNLOAD LINK

So I’ve decided that this is going to be the last edit I post on this blog–it’s been a fun year and I’m feeling good that I managed to post something on time every Wednesday, but it’s time to focus on other exciting new things! Thanks so much for taking the time to check in on my lil’ project πŸ™‚

This last edit feels like a fitting way to go out, as it’s something I’ve been playing for a while (and I actually did a juke remix of this track way back when). It’s one in a long line of “_____ your body” dance records: kind of cheesy, but at the same time a total stomper that hits really hard on a dancefloor.

One last thing: I’m happy to announce that some of this year’s edits will be coming out on vinyl soon, so stay tuned to my twitter and facebook for announcements about that!

Week 38: South Soul Party Mix

“South Soul Party Mix (Chrissy Edit)” β€” DOWNLOAD LINK

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…

Week 27: Computer Madness

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.

Week 22: I Have A Dream

“I Have A Dream (Chrissy Edit)” β€” DOWNLOAD LINK

I was gonna put this out last week, but it seemed like kind of a troll to drop a non-MLK-sampling “I Have A Dream” track two days after MLK day. This is a different Chicago house track than the “I Have A Dream” everybody knows, and it’s a totally slept-on ghetto house classicβ€”possibly because it’s super rare and the original pressing sounds like mud. Here’s an extended, re-EQed / remastered edit.

Week 11: No Way Back

“No Way Back (Chrissy Edit)” β€” DOWNLOAD LINK

Here’s an iconic Chicago acid anthem that every househead has heard a million times (and that I probably shouldn’t even have the audacity to fuck with, but here goes!)

I cut it up in hopes of making a subtly new version that emphasizes the driving, jacking vibe of the original, and also to function as a sort of curveball for the jaded know-it-all house nerds in the audience. πŸ™‚
