more black cock

More Harvey touched grooves for ya today. This one got me to thinkin' about the whole bloody edits debate, it really does come down to what works for you and as a dj it's always good to have new versions of tracks you didn't previously have or great takes on ones u did, to play for yer dancers. It's also great if the edit in question leads u to seek out the original track, and in this and many other cases, the track turns out to be pure gold. It makes you wonder if indeed it did need an edit in the first place (I don't buy into the idea that things are too sacred mind you). Harvey's Black Cock release of 'Cosmic' is definitely one of those, I can see how Harvey's looped take works on a different level to the original by Tony Sylvester, its about the repetition of a slab of goodness, it's hypnotic groove, it's kind of Moodyman like. The original track 'Cosmic Lady' is, however, a bit of a masterpiece in my opinion with so much more to offer, I reckon if you can get away with playing the edit, you may just slay em with the real thing..
