DESCRIPTION

Editions Disco returns!

Prince Language is back with “I Washed You” - a genius reworking of Gary Low’s “I Want You”, the Italodisco track that is the sampled basis for Washed Out’s chillwave anthem “Feel It All Around”.  Featured on his recent promo mix for Fabric, this has been one of the most talked about and highly-awaited tracks of the summer! The original is a wicked slice of Italo built on a punchy synth bassline that would be equally at home in a classic Michael Jackson or Human League hit, shimmering keyboard hooks, and epic percussion fills that’s marred only by a little too much of the old formaggio in the vocal department.  By stripping out the offending verses and working some of his trademark mix-friendly editing magic on the arrangement, Prince Language has created a dancefloor bomb that’s been wreaking havoc on his recent tours of Europe and Australia, and of course the usual dirty New York City jams!

This 12” offers two epic mixes of a killer edit. In a sly wink to Lil’ Louis’ house classic, the A-side’s “Frenchkissmix” replicates the slowed-down loops of the Washed Out track by gradually starting to slow down at the around the 4-minute mark to the 87 BPMs (from the original’s 123 BPM tempo) of “Feel It All Around” – basically recreating the track in its entirety – before gradually speeding back up again and turning back into the Gary Low track.  Trust us, people tend to lose their shit after the initial shock of recognition wears off!  The straight-ahead mix of “I Washed You” on the B-side maintains the tempo of the Gary Low original for the duration of the track, but is no less effective for it, and there’s also some additional delay and arrangement magic thrown in for good measure.  Both cuts are pure summer gold - choose your weapon, DJs!  Already getting support from the DFA crew, Lovefingers, KCRW, and Bim Marx just to name a few.
