Eric Duncan’s twin edit assault continues with the latest instalment of his Keep It Cheap series. On number 3 he welcomed Felix Dickinson to the party for some murky behaviour and sleazy vibes, and for the latest edition he’s created a double header of the year scenario by making a NYC editing tag team with Justin Vandervolgen. Dr Dunks was virtually unstoppable last year, and Justin Vandervolgen’s Try To Find Me project was a major disco sensation so the bar is set at everest levels.
In the red corner Dr Dunks pays another visit to Caroline Crawford (‘Coming on Strong’ was the source for a previous C.O.M.B.I.) this time extending her sweet disco number ‘A Nice Feeling’. Long instrumental sections introduce all the lush feel good grooves of the original, creating a sultry sunshine vibe, before the vocals are let loose in a typical Dr Dunks fashion. Mined of its bottom end and treated to a little echo and reverb, her voice soars above you’re head, guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.
In the blue corner disco viking JVV delivers a knock out punch in the form of dancefloor haymaker ‘Versions’. It’s a low slung slice of ‘balearock’ in a 70’s Laurel Canyon vein with about 4 neat guitar riffs going on at the same time to create a sunset groove. There are bongos a-go-go and all things chuggy, and even a crazy anachronistic percussion breakdown in a heads down style. Resistance is futile to this groove.
