Image: 1592402 Over the last few years, The Very Polish Cut-Outs built a long discography of digital edit EP's filled with forgotten grooves from the his home country's communist past. These reworks attracted the attention of hundreds of diggers and music aficionados around the world.

Vinyl releases followed, all of them selling out in a few weeks. It's not surprising that Zambon, who runs TVPC, decided to issue another bunch of the most successful reworks as a third vinyl sampler of the label. This loudly pressed record contains four gems, ranging from new wave, to bluesy soft-rock and rough discofunk.

The A Side hits us with two edits done by Old Spice, a digger, producer and a master of editing hailing from south-western Poland. 'Pieniadze' is a low slung groover with lyrics about the addictive power of money, extended here for a maximum pleasure on the dancefloor. This track was never pressed to vinyl before, with original short version appearing on a cassette comp only in 1979.

'Chce Ci Powiedziec' (I Want To Say To You) is a perfect slice of Polish disco-rock transformed into a feel-good dancefloor filler. The charismatic female vocal and undeniably catchy hook will work everywhere.

On the B Side up and coming duo Jazxing bring pure downbeat balearic gold. These guys from Gdansk chopped and looped obscure bluesy, funky soft-rock, creating a hypnotizing slice of lazy beach house.

The last cut is done by Mental, who sets us into a cooler territory of Polish no wave. Emotionally engaged vocals about keeping privacy in communist society are backed by a steady post-punk groove. This Poznan producer adds modern drums and arrangements, creating a track that's much deeper and moodier than the original.
