Few jazz funk classics have been as iconic as “Life On Mars” by keyboard legend, songwriter, producer and architect of the ‘ Philly Sound’ Dexter Wansel. Originally released in 1976 at the peak of the disco era, “Life On Mars” was also embraced on the dance floors where it is played to this day.
Now for RSD comes 1000 hand numbered copies of an extremely special exclusive release with the first ever remix of the track, all parts taken from the original masters tapes and added to courtesy of Paul Simpson (Paul Simpson Connection, Serious Intention, Adeva etc).
Dexter Wansel himself contributes too on an extended mix of “Theme From The Planets” (also exclusive) which includes his newly recorded Monolgue of him talking about the creation of this music. And all released on original Philadelphia International label artwork through Expansion.
