Various Artists / Pilooski - Dark and Lovely Vol. 5

200712"DiscoBalearic

It seems that the ancient tradition of the re-edit is nowadays as much in vogue as it was during disco’s heyday—perhaps even more so. Disco and boogie revivalists and old-schoolers Dimitri, Danny Krivit, and Greg Wilson have been hacking at it for ages, and now it seems everybody’s giving the old girl a spin. Just who Pilooski is, I couldn’t tell you—according to his discogs profile he eats feathers and is at least somewhat out of his gourd. Either way, these edits are damn well dirty enough for any kind of fetish to be perfectly alright with me. And not dirty in the Princess Superstar sense—these are some scratchy old joints exuding freakdom from their pores.

First up is Jackson Jones’ “I Feel Good,” which disco-raps its way into your heart with a frenetic slap-happiness, combining wobbly-arse percussion, walking bass and weird string samples, bringing the funk in all three ways. Then things go straight prog on you—”Kismet” is a re-edit of an Amon Duul II track (!) of space-folk-ethnic-jazz-rock meanderings, an invocation that mingles the spacy with the surreal. You could try dancing to it, but I would recommend avoiding the brown acid if you do. I think my brain finally went beyond the pale upon the arrival of “Glastonbury,” which is billed as a “Dirty Reissue.” Whatever that means, I call it Vertigo Records-style white funk drumming with a chorus of acid-folk casualties singing from the hippie hymnal. By which I mean go out, buy this, and turn on, man.
