Peek-a-Boo Boogie

One of the best records of last year, in my opinion, was Lee Douglas's re-edit twelve-inch The Douglas Sound EP off of Blackdisco records. This record consisted of three superb edits including The Freedom Machine's "Jangada", Asha Puthli's "Peek-a-Boo Boogie", and Fuego's "Misa Criolia (We Are The Children)". I don't want to single out one track, because all deserve worthy praise, however that being said, Douglas' edit of Asha Puthli's 1979 "Peek-a-Boo Boogie" (origanlly on her 1979 album 1001 Nights of Love"), re-titled "Hide'n Seek", continues to be one of my favorite disco re-edits of all-time. The amazing edit tends to touch me the same way that Alicia Bridges' "I Love The Nightlife" does at the end of a long exhausting evening. I find that it's that perfect cut that can work nicely as background music at a low-key bar night or on the dancefloor of a nightclub. Regardless, Lee Douglas continues to amaze with growing collection of great disco edits.

Great edit! I like her classic track 'Space talk' as well.
