The second release on Kon’s officially licensed KONtemporary imprint is here.. this time he takes on one of disco’s anthems to devastating effect, deftly reworking Sylvester’s evergreen ‘Over & over’.
A true dance-floor bomb, ‘Over & over’ is just one of THOSE records, originally written by the legendary team of Ashford & Simpson it’s inevitable that this jam oozes class. Kon has lovingly freaked the original master tapes into 2 brand new, fresh versions that will undoubtedly find their way into any self-respecting disco freaks DJ set. On side A we have his ‘Found a friend remix’, a beautifully reimagined and restructured version that leaves lots of space and let’s those wonderful strings really soar, finally crescendoing in total disco glory! It’s no wonder that the mighty DJ Harvey has been closing his sets with this one. Pure class. On side B we are treated to an amazingly bold ‘Dub mix’, in keeping with the traditions of the classic labels, West End, Prelude, Fantasy and Co, it’s sparse, melodic and contains just enough juice to keep the people dancing and asking for more! This is an essential official release, 2 future classic mixes from one of the world’s best remixers further sonically enhanced by Boston native Caserta on the mix.

This first pressing is going for silly money on Discogs as of 2020. Thankfully they did a repress!!!
