NYC Disco legend Danny Krivit returns to the editing block on behalf of seminal Miami Disco powerhouse TK Disco. With 45 years in the DJ game under his belt and having played endless gigs all over the world during that time it's safe to say Mr.K knows exactly what he's doing when it comes to the re-edit thing! With unprecedented access to TK's vaults Danny has been turning in some stellar reworkings as of late and the cuts included on this latest instalment keep the quality sky high!
Peter Brown, a Chicago born singer, keyboard player and producer who had numerous hit singles and LP's (he also wrote Madonna's "Material Girl"!) was a popular Disco artist who harnessed his own original style merging his sweet singing style with synths and modern studio techniques. "For Your Love" listed from his 1977 debut LP "A Fantasy Love Affair" on TK's Drive imprint takes up side-A on this 12" and is treated to the DK edit magic. Danny gives us a subtle, respectful rework of this quirky LP cut, a synth driven midtempo number. Perfect for the early set or the late, late night encounters, sublime!
On side-B we have a slightly more uptempo jam in the shape of legendary jazz organist Jimmy McGriff's "Tailgunner" - A groove that just won't stop! Here Danny gives us the break after some slight teasing, accompanied by McGriff's funky organ vamps the whole track is rearranged and slightly tougher than the original version. This edit is definitely for the dancers, it's got all the drums upfront and displays some serious hard funk! Again, on this volume both edits are of supreme high quality, not surprising in any way when we consider that one of the originators of the art-form is behind them!
100% legit re-edits, remastered and released in conjunction with Henry Stone Music / TK Disco - Miami FL.
