French Disco maestro Dimitri From Paris' Le Edits imprint returns for it's fifth special release, bringing you only the finest and most beautifully executed lovingly reworked classics from the four corners of the discotheque dance-floor. Hot on the heels of the last handful of releases (all now highly sought after and collectible, of course!) Dimitri is back once more and he's proving that 'quality over quantity' is what really counts in today's musical landscape. When you buy a Le Edits release, you know you are holding something très magnifique in your hands!
Le Edits No.5 sees the ultimate disco DIVA step into the picture, a truly inspirational and legendary vocalist whose name is known across the musical galaxy - Chaka Khan! Any self-respecting fan of Soul, Funk, Disco and beyond will undoubtedly have a few of her records in their collection, but not any like this one. Two all-time classics penned by Disco legends Ashford & SImpson, get the DFP touch this time around with the evergreen and world-conquering dancefloor anthem 'I'm Every Woman' taking up the A-side of this release. As ever, this huge track gets a new lease of life in true Le Edits fashion, respectfully reworked and rearranged from the master tapes - you've never heard it like this before! On the flip, Dim treats us to a more underground, rare slice of Chaka with the epic stylings of the mighty 'Clouds'. A true cult classic that is a bonafide Paradise Garage anthem and easily one of the most dramatic Disco cuts ever. We get to hear the incredible arrangements and strings refreshed, while Chaka soars over what is one of the diamonds of her extensive catalogue. Incroyable!
If you've been following the label you will know that only the finest Disco reworks are released on Le Edits. Extra-special versions of classics and rarer than rare tracks, all lovingly re-touched and mixed from the reels and master tapes each time, fully sanctioned and created in conjunction with the artists, rights holders and Above Board Distribution. 100% official and essential. This is no 'under the counter' operation, Le Edit is here to bring back some quality and class to the re-edit game by doing things, once and for all, properly and respectfully. No re-press guaranteed. Utilising the highest end tip-on heavy duty sleeves, and outer protective sleeves, pressed onto 100% virgin vinyl. These new mixes have been legitimately commissioned and will not be available digitally. This product cost 4 times as much to produce than your average Disco edit 12’’ because Le Edits believe in quality first and foremost.
Early DJ support from Dimitri From Paris, FK and Gilles Peterson.
