Kim English - "It Makes A Difference" (Danny Krivit & Kyle Smith remix - Danny Krivit 7" edit) (5:39)
Loni Clark - "Rushing" (Mood II Swing dub - Danny Krivit 7" edit) (5:31)
Review: Danny Krivit is currently known as one of the music community's greatest purveyors of top quality disco & house as he continues to perform regularly before sold-out audiences around the world. With his unique ear for what works on the dancefloor he has also become known as "King of the Re-edit." Danny has a deep connection to Kim English's "It Makes A Difference" release on Nervous Records from 2006. Krivit worked with writer Kyle Smith on the remixes that originally made this tune an anthem at his 718 Sessions parties as well as one of the highlights of club nights from Tokyo to New York to London that appreciate quality soulful house. The B-side is Danny's re-edit of one of the most famed dubs from the Nervous catalogue as well as for the producers Mood II Swing. Upon its release in 1993 this dub emerged as one of the defining sounds of summer 1993 at Ministry Of Sound which had just recently opened the year before. The "rushing rushing rushing" hook is well knownby golden era of house afficianados around the world and he does an amazing job bringing this essential hook.
Review: Earlier in the year, sometime Blip Discs and Ninja Tune man O'Flynn (real name Ben Norris) returned to action after a two-year absence. Here he attempts to keep up the pressure via a double A-side single on Silver Bear Recordings. "Sunspear" is little less than a rushing blast of summery dancefloor brilliance - a percussively dense and smile inducing house jam rich in filtered horns, throaty funk vocalizations and what we assume are samples from a cheery Brazilian disco record. A similar production approach be can be heard on the flip, where O'Flynn delivers a lolloping, bass-heavy revision of a lesser-known disco funk cut. It's suitably heavy, but also boasts the kind of rubbery rhythmic swing that's rarely heard on similar exercises in sample-heavy filter house.
