Boz Scaggs -- "Lowdown" (Disco Syndicate's Dirty Lowdown Extended Mix)
I came across Disco Syndicate the other day and his huge collection of old disco remixes and extended cuts. He's an old guy in his 40s from Haarlem in the Netherlands, and has been mixing tunes for over 30 years.
His approach is exactly the sort of style I love. Take an old classic, and don't do too much to it other than extend it. Lengthen the intro, add a huge break in the middle, play around a little with the outro, and that's it. A perfect tool for DJs who just like the original songs to go for a little longer so that they can get to the bar and grab another beer.
Here's a great version of Boz Scaggs' "Lowdown", and you can find heaps of other mixes at his Soundcloud or his Facebook pages
