When it comes to re-editing, French crate digger Charles Maurice is something of a purist. His re-edits are little more than brilliantly judged re-arrangements, shorn of 21st century production trickery, but with the best bits of each original track pushed to the fore. This EP features a quartet of these pleasingly purist scalpel jobs. There's much to admire, from the humid hustle of tropical disco jam "Trini-Vibes", to the laidback disco-funk swing of "Sneaker 54" and low-slung post-disco sweetness of "Bio Rhythms".
After a first release early 2016, the Discomatin crew from Paris returns to their Discomatin Edits series with this second effort, still in the spirit of the afterparty they organize to entertain the early birds, who prefer to dance than catching the worms.
The EP is composed by four tracks, finely picked and slightly edited by the DJ's of the crew. From AOR mellow grooves to French original kitsch and funkyness, they open a wide range of possibilities. It's fresh, it's French, so don't sleep on it!
