Disco Le Groove

Last month, former Hacienda Deejay and "master of the edit", Greg Wilson, released another 12-inch re-edit titled, DC Le Groove on the new Disco Deviance label. This time, Wilson reworks D.C. Larue’s 1976 classic "Cathedrals" and a live version of Talking Heads' "Psycho Killer" which is mixed over a Chicago Acid House drum machine(interesting?). My favorite of the two, "Cathedrals", which goes by DC Le Groove on this record, is an extended and instrumental of the original classic. Wilson does a nice job of keeping the orginal feel while adding a few clever samples to "spice up" the track a bit. It's not suprising that Greg Wilson once again takes a solid original and makes it his own.

The 'acid house' drums in the Talking Heads edit are actually bizarrely taken from the live version of Psycho Killer. It’s from the Stop Making Sense CD. GW has messed around with them obviously but it’s pretty cool I think that Talking Heads were actually using that kind of sound themselves anyway.
