Initially started as an excuse for Eric Duncan and friends to release pitched-down reworks of suitably cosmic jams, the New York Edits series has taken on a life of its own over the last 18 months. No doubt this fifth installment will become as in-demand as the previous installments, thanks in no small part to the suitably chugging chop-up of David Keaton's stoner disco fave "Gloria" on the flip. The NY Edits version is, predictably, even more baked, working the killer, organ-laced, clavinet-heavy groove for longer before introducing Keaton's half-whispered vocal. The A-side is more in keeping with the smacked-out feel of the series, with grandiose analogue synthesizer lines riding a delay-laden blue-eyed soul groove. Serious sleaze.
