u bomb!

You'll have noticed an undercurrent of 80's Disco around here lately... no? Well there is one damnit! More importantly Ulysses 82 drop by with their on fire edit of Empress' 'Dyin' To Be Dancing' for your guaranteed dirty, hot, grooving pleasure. Ulysses are the combined talents of dj's Je Suis C & John Baptiste (aka Jaksoul of The Horse Latitudes), and are currently doing their synth, funk, 80's boogie, edit-heavy, Disco, jacked-up, party thing all over London and elsewhere. You may have previously read about them on blogs with class - Dilated Choonz & Innersounds, you may even have been fortunate to catch their distinctive, sweat inducing live sets in person.. U82 spin a truckload of their own edits & productions in their sets, check their myspace for more of their sounds and keep your ears to the ground for up coming vinyl from these guys. I love what U82 have done with this, another lesser known, Prelude bomb. Mighty midtempo magic!!

yeah i love the original too, the edit is fantastic and serves as a nice intro to Ulysses 82 who i think are rather good!

I don't know the original, but this is very nice

i also think there is no need for a re-edit of this track. the original has a great mix already...

frico said...

...oh, and don't get me wrong, technically it's a very good edit.
:)
great Blog!
Thanks!

I can see both sides of this one. It's a killer track in it's own right, but (obviously) I also love this version.

Ultimately the original is still there to play and this just gives you another option and a chance to revisit a classic track from a slightly different angle.

(thanks again chris)

thanks for all the responses people and yeah i gotta say John's on the money with that statement - if the edit is good, and this one clearly is, it's really great to have another version to play out.. but of course i appreciate that not everyone will feel the same... which is a good thing of course :)
