Clearly this is a Sister Sledge remix. I'm sure if this ever gets signed the credits will be fixed.

This is good. But its not terribly special.
Whatever makes you groove. I guess I felt like posting something new I liked.
That came out too snotty, sorry.
I've lately been trying to grok nu disco: it seems an ideal intergenerational cement for a family wedding I've been asked (out of the blue) to DJ (I'll be permitted to go somewhat off the chart rails for a few hours).
There's no shortage of pleasant tracks that more or less re-EQ and strain classics for modern consumption (I'd particularly recommend The Revenge's remix of "Lost in Music" among Sister Sledge tracks for a set-build).
But on the whole, I don't experience a sense that this is a necessary sound, a sound of the now. I know all the pomo apologies for resurrecting the past in new forms. I think 112-120 bpm nu disco with more evolved sound sculpture could be important, but its just too reverent so far...
(sorry to those who find this discussion too ILMish/Sound Opinionish on a video site)...

I see what you are saying and agree. In this case it has more to do with timing and me being roped in by the nostalgia of it all. I had tons of 45s to play with as a kid ( around 6-7yo ) as my parents picked up everything in site, including the original of this. Sadly I have no idea what happened to that giant stack of records.
I dig a lot of Go Go's stuff because he does retool the original mood and feel somewhat radically while still giving us a big enough snip of the original to feast on. I know pitch can be a poor excuse for style and an easy hook to get folks on the floor. In spite of that this works for me and I think it's a lot of fun. But Go Go will have to broaden his bag of tricks if he wants to really go anywhere as a producer.
