Dirrty Edits

Even though this is primarily an electronic blog, I like to throw in the odd curveball here and there and diversify from the path most travelled. Life would be pretty dull if we listened to minimal Techno 24/7. I got sent these fantastic re-edits from Dirty Recordings in France and they have been on heavy rotation on my stereo for the last couple of weeks. They take obscure classics from all different genres and give them to Mr Pilooski to re-edit for the dancefloor. They are then released as very limited (1000 copies) white label 12"s.

First up is Frankie Valli, with some classic R&B/Soul which has a brooding Wu- Tang like breakbeat intro which then builds into a classic Northern Soul groove.

Edwin Starr has been given a slow electro-disco rework, with his vocal layered over some throbbing synth action.

Edwin Starr - Get Up (Pilooski Edit) Dark and Lovely Vol 2

'Nobody But Me' by The Human Beinz is pure Garage Rock 'n' Roll ecstasy from the late 60's and has me jumping around to the metronomic Krautrock beat which really drives it on the dancefloor. Speaking of metronomic beats the last cut is from the masters of the Krautrock sound, Can. My knowledge of said genre is limited to say the least, but the elements that I have been exposed to have certainly inspired me to seek out more of this sound.

Can - Mothersky (Pilooski Edit) Dark and Lovely Vol 2

Dark and Lovely Volume 3 is still available at Phonica. Dark and Lovely Vol 4 will be released shortly. Other gems from these releases are a slo-mo electronic disco versions of 'i-Robot' by The Alan Parsons Project and 'Was Dog a Doughnut' by Cat Stevens. You can listen to the other tracks from these releases here.

love that human beinz
Yo 'langer' - you should post the originals up there so we can here what's been changed - I have the Beanz and the Can, but wouldn't mind hearing the Frankie Valli to see what's been done...
So crazy "beggin" !!!

Thanks a lot
