There will be some who glance at this and think: "do we really need new edits of two stone cold classics?" Ordinarily, perhaps not, but these versions are by Dimitri From Paris, one re-editor and remixer whose disco "blends" and rearrangements consistently breathe new life into well-known cuts. Take his version of Odyssey's "Native New Yorker", for example. With access to the original master tapes, he's been able to reconstruct the track in his own distinctive style, inserting string-laden breakdowns and playing around with the instrumentation in a classic, Tom Moulton style. The Parisian veteran takes a different approach on the flipside version of Dan Hartman's grandiose disco thumper "Relight My Fire", straightening out the beats to give an original peak-time anthem a much more house-centric twist.
