magic wand edits

Sometime in May last year, I managed to convince DJ Steef (aka Troublemakers aka Venus Attack Project) into allowing me to hand over a copy of his then recently finished and fantastic Black Sabbath edit on anoe, I had heard it originally in a Leftside Wobble mix. Occasionally a track goes up here which gets my divshare counters really spinning, 'Black Savates' was one of those. It popped up in mixes all over the place. Now for the first time it gets an official vinyl release on Is It Balearic Recordings?' new edits offshoot Magic Wand along with a couple of Coyote edits and one from Manchester's BE. Coyote put the beach sand into Paul Hardcastle's 'Delores', now the ultimate baked, ocean side drive, plus they hand in a dubbed up take on Randy Crawfords 'You Might Need Somebody' which is a little slice of magic for me, since the original is a long time guilty pleasure. Lastly BE hits up Richard Bear's 'Sunshine Hotel' with extra beats and cuts, it's the closest this ep gets to a clubby moment with a funk heavy, midtempo beauty that flips on a little deepest deep house magic in the last third, superb!! Check out the BE below, check here for the other three lovelies and invest in this island treasure trove... well I would.
