I love this guy and have done a million edits of his stuff already, but here’s one more. I cut out most of the vocals, and slowed it down into a New Beat / EBM-type tune instead of the Hi-NRG vibe it originally had. Hope it comes in handy!
Here’s an edit of a forgotten Euro-pop tune with some jackin’ drum programming. VERY CORNY and not the kind of thing you’ll be able to play every set, but I love it to death so I thought I’d share 😀 😀 😀
This is a classic New York garage tune with an amazing chorus and breakdown, but the verses always ruined it for me personally. So I went ahead and made an edit that draws out the instrumental bits & the chorus, strips out the bad parts, and focuses on what I liked about the original.
This week I’ve got an edit of a dark, driving No Wave cut from early-’80s New York. I never really cared for the vocals in the original, so I made an instrumental! Hope this comes in handy for your NYE DJ sets…
Everybody’s heard this thumping, piano-driven Euro-disco mega-hit, but probably at a grocery store rather than a nightclub. It’s really really cheesy. I stretched out the good bits and took out the worst bits so it’ll work better on a dancefloor.
This is one of my all-time favorite disco records: kind of a missing link between the soul groups of the 1960s and the beat-driven NY Garage and proto-House of the late 1970s and early ’80s. I made it a little easier to beatmix, and drew it out a little, and built in some big dramatic breakdowns to freak out the people who already know the original.
Here’s an edit of a tune from one of my fave New York post-punk / disco labels. The singer & producer on this both did a lot of work throughout the disco/punk/new wave/art kid scene that existed in New York in the early 1980s, but this particular song seems to have be a forgotten one. It’s a great seed of a song but there were some parts that hadn’t aged very well, so I took out the dumb bits, extended it, dubbed it out, and structured it to be a little more DJ friendly.
This is one of my all-time fave disco tunes, which itself is a cover of one of the very first disco songs. I first heard it in a Farley Jackmaster Funk mix from WGCI (way way WAY after the mix initially aired, obviously). It’s an AMAZING tune, but the lyrics have not aged well, the structure is kind of a mess, and the tempo is all-over-the-place (live drummers amirite???) So I tidied it up a bit.
