One Plus One
One Plus One (12" Nachpressung)
Cat: ZEDD 12304. Rel: 15 Jan 21
Disco/Nu-Disco
  1. One Plus One (Dave Lee extended club mix) (8:25)
  2. One Plus One (Dave Lee Boogie Boy dub) (6:24)
  3. One Plus One (Dave Lee reprise) (5:35)
Review: Now going by his given name of Dave Lee rather than his obviously problematic previous alias Joey Negro, the Z Records boss has not showed any dip in form since the switch. Here he serves up three of his legendary mixes, this time tackling an unearthed and unreleased Leroy Burgess tape that was recorded in the same sessions as 'Heartbreaker'. 'One Plus One' is the sound of an artist in his prime, with lush backing singers adding buttery warmth to the lead vocals, big instrumentals filing your soul with joy and noodling bass driving things along. All three mixes are superb and subtle in equal measure.

Heartbreaker (remixes)
Cat: SG 409RX. Rel: 20 Aug 20
Disco/Nu-Disco
  1. Heartbreaker (Shep Pettibone 12" mix) (6:18)
  2. Heartbreaker (Moplen remix) (8:16)
Review: Leroy Burgess has made many terrific records in his time, and his turn-of-the-'80s boogie-era work for Salsoul contains many stone cold classics. Even so, he recorded few songs quite as addictive or impassioned as 1983's "Heartbreaker" - a strutting ode to a new lover featuring squelchy synths aplenty, inspired gospel style backing vox and a stunning lead vocal from the sometime Universal Robot Band maestro. On this reissue, Shep Pettibone's indispensable original 12" mix is backed by a fresh remix from Italian disco king Moplen. His version is a little more stripped back, expertly showcasing the original's immaculately programmed drums, bassline and squelchy synths. In his usual manner, you'll also find a number of sublime vocal breakdowns that really help the track soar. Superb!

Barely Breaking Even
Barely Breaking Even (gatefold 2xLP)
BBE
Cat: BBE 500ELP. Rel: 24 Sep 19
Funky/Club House
  1. Barely Breaking Even (Louie Vega Boogie mix) (7:59)
  2. Barely Breaking Even (Louie Vega NYC House remix - instrumental) (9:08)
  3. Barely Breaking Even (Louie Vega NYC House remix) (9:07)
  4. Barely Breaking Even (Louie Vega Boogie mix - instrumental) (7:55)
Review: We're prepared to argue with anyone on this, but Universal Robot Band's "Barely Breaking Even" is one of the best boogie-era disco records ever made. Its title was also the inspiration for the name of BBE Records, so it seems fitting that the label's 500th release is an all-star re-recording that brings together NYC house hero Louie Vega and original creators Leroy Burgess and Patrick Adams. Vega delivers vocal and instrumental versions of two distinctive passes: a slick, smooth, soulful and string-laden "Boogie Mix" rich in warm electronics and subtle nods towards the early '80s original, and a rolling "NYC House Remix" full of twinkling Fender Rhodes solos and atmospheric chords. As you'd expect, Burgess' re-recorded vocal is superb.
