Visions of Tomorrow - Galaxy

200712"HouseDisco

Not the War tune, but a lost gem of disco-boogie unearthed by the aptly-named Past Due label, wherein silly-spooky spaceman vocals and a ripe analog wiggle grace bar-band funk with nicely understated horns. The re-edits, courtesy of Charles Webster and Francois A. (cue joke about the K. being already taken) do the do, both elongating and tarting up the original for consumption by modern dancefloors. The Webster Edit is the most sympathetic to the original, slightly wack vibe, in that he seems mainly concerned with lengthening, strengthening, and exposing a bit more separation in the constituent parts to give it a more minimal/less retro feel. Francois A. is more interested in revisionism, and takes “Galaxy” into the uptempo house dimension in a big ole hurry. Strangely, it actually kinda worksI don’t know what he’s done apart from speed it up and ditch the vocals, but it reminds me of the halcyon days of filter-house, and that’s enough to ask. For now.
