Soul/Jazz./Disco legend George Duke’s Latin infused Brazilian Love Affair, the lead track from the album of the same name, is no stranger to the world of Nu-Disco edits. Maybe it’s those cowbells? Maybe it’s the slap bass? Maybe it’s the carefree left-field groove? Something makes the track crack for producers. Just because a track has been given the edit treatment before doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to better it. That’s what Ali Jamieson, producer of some of our favourite edits in the past year or so, has done. And he’s brought his A game.
Slowly layering elements to east you into the groove. Ali builds up the very best bits of the track until the track is full to the brim. Where the original is a slinky, laid back, airy tune, Jamieson’s edit is an exuberant, unrelenting floorfiller that only briefly let’s up for it’s freeform breakdowns before launching back into the laser sighted Funk. Jazz Fusion turned Cosmic Disco. Excellent stuff.

Get ready for some space-age bootleg Disco action as the mighty MiGHty mOUse takes a little break from working his arse off with Du Tonc and touring the world like a boss to deliver this cheeky little bootleg edit of Dutch singer Caro Emerald’s 2010 hit Stuck. A mainstay if his recent DJ sets, the mOUse must have decided that this one was too much fun to keep to himself. We agree.
MiGHty mOUse goes crazy with the smokey vocals and old time Jazz sound. Remember in the mid-90s when Dance acts sampling old Jazz records was a thing? Well, imagine a more Discofied version of that. MM gifts the track some storming beats and big galactic synths, making the tune a bit of a contradiction, but an amazingly funky one. You can see why he put this one together for his sets, this is a real DJ weapon. The track is available, as all bootleg edits should be, for free.
