Another pair of underground Disco dance classics get treated to the MM reworking magic! Both these edits are exclusive to this 12" and have never before been released in any format!!Detroit natives The Jones Girls have long been loved for their musical output, during their long and successful career they've released a slew of well known and classic material since the early 1970's and have worked with a host of legendary artists including Leon Haywood, Lamont Dozier, Curtis Mayfield, Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin and many many more. NYC's edit king Mike Maurro may not have been around as long as them but he has skilfully woven his magic with 2 of the girls' biggest club jams, gently reworking from the master tapes respectfully he's delivered 2 stunning edits of "Dance turned into a romance" and "Nights over Egypt"."Dance turned into a romance" on the a-side was originally released on Philadelphia International in 1980 and is a bonafide slow burner, Mike has the crisp drum break upfront in the mix, making it perfectly mixable and setting the tone for the deep bass guitar licks to creep in. This wonderful rearrangement suddenly gives way to the slick piano, guitar and of course, those Philly strings! Originally written and produced by the legendary Gamble and Huff team this is classy stuff. Beautifully edited here by MM, retaining the feel of the original composition yet adding a welcome 2016 twist!"Nights over Egypt" - a true blue club classic, takes up the b-side! This one should need no intro, another solid piece of gold from the Philly International archives from 1981. This time the girls team up with Philly genius Dexter Wansel for a smoothed out slice of Disco dripping with sophisticated Jazz sensibilities. Here, Mike uses what sounds like some alternative takes from the studio session and succeeds in rearranging an all time classic jam with class! We are treated to a nice long instrumental intro with flourishes of Rhodes, strings and super tight, snapping drums with the vocals coming in almost 3 minutes into the track! Absolutely essential stuff here, another Mike Maurro master mix sureshot!If you're a lover of all things DISCO, these edits will no doubt whet you appetite for more of Mike's mixes, utterly essential reworkings for 2016's dance-floors. Snoozing on these EP's is not advised!

It takes a very special record to be christened a 'classic', 'timeless', 'legendary'. Heatwave's 1976 smash 'Boogie Nights' is one such special record, it undoubtedly deserves all the cache it has received over the decades since it's original release.Written by the late Rod Temperton (who went on to work with Michael Jackson, George Benson, Chaka Khan, Quincy Jones and many others) this proto-Disco anthem still influences today and is renowned as an all-time classic dance record. 'Boogie Nights' was a hit in the USA, peaking at #2 in the charts in early 1977. Not bad for a group of Europeans with no connection to the hustle and bustle of NYC, or the grit and glamour of Detroit, Michigan with Temperton even calling Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire 'home'!Now, in 2017, Brookside Records present part 1 of a very special 2 x 12" package indeed. NYC mix master Mike Maurro has stepped up, armed with a fistful of master reels from Epic's vaults and has undertaken the task of remixing this all-time classic and it's B-side 'Too Hot To Handle' in fine fashion. As usual, Maurro turns in respectful, faithful versions, made from the point of view of someone who has lived with this music all their lives. Much care and love has been taken with these new mixes, and new life has been breathed into Heatwave's music. Both mixes utilise some previously unheard studio ad-libs and instrumentation to fantastic effect, shining some new light on tracks that are engraved in the psyches of millions of dancers, DJ's and music lovers, no mean feat, but Mike Maurro pulls it off beautifully.Again, Brookside bring us another set of cult Disco cuts reworked beautifully for 2017's ears, essential stuff for all lovers of this kind of music, this release is simply unmissable. The record comes with lovingly reworked Heatwave artwork and these remixes are exclusive to this release and are fully, 100% legit, licensed and sanctioned by all relevant rights holders.Simply put, another set of essential mixes from a modern day master!

Following on from the first part of Heatwave remixes, Mike Maurro digs deep into this legendary groups catalogue to bring us another duo of stellar reworkings. This time their Jazz-Funk classic 'The Groove Line' from 1977 gets the MM remix treatment and is backed with their evergreen slow-jam 'Always And forever'. 2 deeper cuts this time but the quality is just as high as Maurro really understands this music and knows what to use and how. Fans of Heatwave will undoubtedly adore these new mixes and people who are new to the group will be amazed they hadn't checked out the legendary Mr. Rod Temperton and his super talented pan-European band of musicians before! Naturally, everyone is welcome to this party....Another amazing addition from Brookside Records to the ever growing archive of classic Disco, Funk & Soul treats that we, as music lovers, are lucky to experience.

Absolutely classic double header of brand new mixes from the mighty Mike Maurro! A Detroit classic goes head to head with another solid gold Philly classic on this 12" of exclusive mixes lifted from his "Peak Hour remixes" project, all produced from the original master tapes. The Spinners evergreen Soul classic "I'll Be Around" takes up the A-side with Mike's trademark respectful flourishes evident - a restrained, classy version of this all-time anthem is what we're treated to by someone who truly understands the originals and feels the music. A must have for all serious Soul lovers out there. On the B-side we have The Trammps stellar "The Night The Lights Went Out", a long time favourite that has been extensively sampled by numerous House artists and The Trammps paean to the infamous city wide blackout during the summer of '77 in NYC that ended up subsequently reshaping popular culture as we know it. Maurro's mix, as always, has respectfully rearranged the track in such a way that he's managed to put a new spin on a legendary disco classic focussing on the incredible arrangements of Norman Harris' original.

"It's party time tonight!" - NYC Mix maestro Mike Maurro has turned in a storming, 14+ minute version of Patrick Adams' classic "Weekend" by Phreek, a true blue club classic from 1978 (Later covered by Class Action, sampled by Todd Terry etc) "Weekend" was an absolutely huge Paradise Garage staple getting unlimited spins from Larry Levan during the club's lifespan, the definition of a "Garage" record indeed. Maurro's new mix rearranges and deconstructs the original version with so much style, respect and feeling, using unheard synth vamps, string sections, percussions and breakdowns pushing it into a whole new direction while retaining the feel of the original mix. The track is already electric in it's original form but here Mike Maurro pushes the energy levels right through the roof, birthing a fresh new mix of a stone cold classic!On the B-side we have the low slung funk of The New Birth's killer "Deeper", released in '77 as a single on promo 12" this cut gets the MM mix treatment, with the intro extended and the drums brought fully upfront in the mix Mike has teased out all the best parts of the original arrangement while managing to stamp his always unique style on this new version. This midtempo groover is pure Soul all the way, one for the serious dancers that keeps rolling itself along into one of the most solid, funkiest grooves ever!

The Florida based Brookside imprint have dug deep into the Philly master tapes and let NYC master-mixer Mike Maurro loose on a couple of stone cold classics from the catalog! Maurro, a Queens based DJ and mixer since 1986 has become one of the top remixers out there today with his own, faithful takes on numerous dance classics from the last 30+ years. Here, he tackles 2 cuts from Philadelphia International recording artists and Soul, Funk and Disco legends - Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes. "Bad Luck" takes up side-A of the 12", a glorious 13 minute remix that just oozes class. This one was made with DJ's in mind, extended drum breaks, elongated sections that squeeze every drop of sweet Philly Soul out onto the dancefloor. Side-B sees a fantastic mix of the evergreen classic "The Love I Lost", clocking in at just under 12 minutes. A slow burning version with the instrumentation and arrangements up front for the first few minutes before the track unfolds and Teddy's iconic vocals grace our eardrums. Incredible! These mixes are ESSENTIAL for any Disco/soul/Funk fans out there, unmissable for the DJ's, legitimately remastered and pressed onto high quality 12" singles in conjunction with all rights holders.
