When Glitterbox maestro Simon Marlin, aka The Shapeshifters, reunited with CHIC's Kimberly Davis to bring us Second Chance, the track gave us the ultimate Studio 54 dancefloor feeling. Becoming an instant disco anthem, it was playlisted on Radio 2, giving the whole nation a reason to groove. Now Glitterbox Recordings present a record box essential, the 12” vinyl featuring the stunning original, a remix from Italian producer Moplen and The Shapeshifters Reprise. Putting a new spin on the much loved tune, Moplen, takes on ‘Second Chance’ by adding his distinctive drum sounds to the extended remix, crafting a rhythmic disco vibe and making the most of the exquisite strings. The Shapeshifters Reprise delivers a slow and dreamy build up that evolves to funk-filled bass, complimenting Kimberly Davis' punchy chorus. This special delivery also features the Accapella, an essential tool for discerning disco DJs. Music this good deserves to be heard on wax.
