Legendary DJ, remixer, and edit exponent Greg Wilson is back with the third instalment of his Credit To the Edit series. Almost a decade on from Volume 2 (2005), Credit To the Edit Volume Three draws on music from the disco and rave eras, adding a seminal hip hop cut, a Balearic favorite, as well a few contemporary tracks from the last ten years. Working with Technics turntables, a Revox reel-to-reel tape machine, and a razor blade, Greg carved out his reputation as a UK pioneer and champion of electro-funk. Whereas, more recently, following his 2003 comeback after a two-decade hiatus, he's gained international renown at the vanguard of a now global re-edits movement. "This album mainly consists of straight up old-style edits, where I've worked with the stereo tracks, extending, re-arranging and sometimes overdubbing. There are also some reworks/remixes where I've had the stems at my disposal and been able to bring into play additional instrumentation, courtesy of remix partner Peza on a couple of the tracks -- 2016's 'Hold On' by Luxxury featuring The Reynolds plus the futuristic '70s disco hit, 'Magic Fly' by Space." Kicking off with DJ Mike Pickering's T-Coy project, the loose-limbed Latinate shuffle "Carino" is very much a cult classic. Greg's instrumental edit of Todd Terje's edit of "Glad To Know You", 37 years on from the Chaz Jankel original, has been a big club and festival favorite, and is made available here for the first time, while Escort make their second Credit To the Edit appearance with Greg's remix of their 2010 release, "Cocaine Blues". The near-pornographic funk classic "Jungle Fever", recorded by Chakachas, a group of Belgian-based studio musicians, is a playful mixture of Latin music, jazz, and European-style exotica and the Fab 5 Freddy & Beside's "Change The Beat" is a hip-hop landmark. His 2009 edit of one of the all-time rave classics, "Is There Anybody Out There?", recorded by Bassheads, is always guaranteed to bring the roof down, whilst he makes a more DJ friendly version of Sheila & B.Devotion's "Spacer", placing the emphasis on the Chic-driven backing. More recent favorites come courtesy of Psychemagik with Navid Izadi on "Mink and Shoes", Red Rack'em, and closer "Getting Away With It", a hidden classic of the Madchester-era recorded in 1989 by Bernard Sumner (New Order) and Johnny Marr (The Smiths) as Electronic (complete with Pet Shop Boy Neil Tennant).
