Long time house and disco devotee Dave Lee comes through on Z Records once more with a sampler from this years ZR Essentials collection. It features two of his masterful reworks starting with Jamiroquai’s ‘Little L’. He flips into a funked up cosmic delight with plenty of the original’s synth flourishes melodic hooks and orchestration all present and correct but with added slap bass, replayed rhodes and beefy new drums which make this a surefire dancefloor winner pretty much anywhere.
On the flip comes Dave Lee’s Disco Fantasy mix of Shelia & B Devotion’s 1979 hit ‘Spacer’ which has a more retro disco sound thanks to the masterful original work of Chic. Additional clav, new string parts and solo-ing keys give ‘Spacer’ the extended DJ mix it never had at the time of original release.
