5.0 out of 5 stars headphone soundskapin and bootie ass-shakin, 24 July 2007

This review is from: Greg Wilson - Credit To The Edit - Volume One (Audio CD)
Essential for anyone who loves modern dance with an edge - LCD, The Knife, Hot Chip etc. Origins of those sounds.
15 Count-Em rock solid classic tracks surgically re-edited by a man deeply in love with music. The re-edits accentuate the best bridges, choruses, effects of the originals and fuse them together with the ear of a sonic wizard. What really shines on this album is Gregs understanding of sonic space - how much room do we give the vocal, should the build be a focus of a rmx, are two simultanious tracks better than one? - the vocal on one track unexpectedly enters after 4 minutes of build!!!
Some tracks are just that - re-edits, while others such as Raw DMX "Do It To The Funk" are mash ups of two seperate songs that unify with a startling brilliance. All the tracks ooze a true dedication to and love of music.
Its hard to describe that although this a re-edit album, such is the artfulness in the featured tracks re-assemblage that it in fact feels as if greg was in the studio engineering and producing alternate takes of solid gold classics, while in fact many of these reinterpretations feature some 15 years later! Astonishing then that some of them improve on the originals. No mean feat when your dealing with music of this calibre...

Do yourself a favour, grab this and david mancuso's loft series and indulge in disco / funk / house / electro masterpieces from a time when dance music was foward looking, ecstatic and not in the least bit self-referential or cynical.

A truly superb release
