Don’t really know who he samples but he does it in his own style making this remix a burning mid-tempo House track taking the decent original to new heights. Unlike many others trying to convert Disco into House he avoids the clichés (read giving it the French filtered touch or the looping it to a climax aka The Revenge touch) and he makes something that combines the best of both worlds without disrespecting either or them. It all seems mighty simple but it’s not.
Many of you will know Motor City Drum Ensemble from the Raw Cuts series. Although I’m a fan of that too and I rate his other original work I’m above everything else a fan of his remixes. He has made some absolute beauties.
Other killer remixes are:
Jazzanova – Look What You’re Doin’ To Me (MCDE Remix) – Verve
DJ Sprinkles – Grand Central, Pt. I (MCDE Bassline Dub) – Mule Musiq
Nufrequency feat. Ben Onono – Fallen Hero (Motor City Drum Ensemble Remix) – Rebirth
Art Of Tones Featuring Jaw – Call The Shots (Motor City Drum Ensemble Remix) -20:20 Vision
They’re all available on vinyl except the Jazzanova one.
