The Jackson 5 - "The Love You Save" (Del Gazebo & Aldo Vanucci Soul Flip edit) (4:19)
Joy Lovejoy - "In Orbit" (Del Gazebo & Aldo Vanucci Soul Flip edit) (3:54)
Review: Two hearty party starters from Gazebo & Vanucci. On the A we dig deep into golden era Motown with The Jackson 5's fourth number one single. Swinging breaks, Jackson's falsetto and some classic scat backing vocals from the rest of the Jackson clan, it's a lesser known thriller "The Love You Save". On the B we go back three more years to 67 for Joy Lovejoy's debut on Chess subsidiary Checker. A relentless northern soul jam with urgent vocals from Joy backed up by supreme horn action, it's another expert edit from the Soul Flip stable.
Martha Reeves & The Vandellas - "I Can't Dance To That Music You're Playing" (Soul Flip edit) (3:58)
Sugar Pie Desanto - "Go Go Power" (Soul Flip edit) (4:19)
Review: More cheeky 45 party power from Aldo Vanucci and Del Gazeebo as they hit their third Soul Flip edit release of the year. Martha Reeves & The Vandellas 1968 letter to gabber DJs of the future "I Can't Dance To That Music You're Playing" gets a subtle stomp in the beat department while Sugar Pie Desanto's 1966 R&B pant swinger "Go Go Power" gets the extension its also deserved. Go go Soul Flip.
The Temptations - "I Can't Get Next To You" (Wonderlove re-edit) (3:54)
Jack Hammer - "Swim" (Wonderlove short re-edit) (3:55)
Review: Wonderlove is the re-editor at the controls for the latest edition of the Soul Flip reworks series, which this time boasts tidy rearrangements of killer cuts from the Temptations and Jack Hammer. It's the former's 1969 single "I Can't Get Next To You" that gets the rework treatment first, with Wonderlove making merry with the track's jangling piano riffs, hybrid rock/soul groove, insatiable vocals and much-sampled drum breaks (which get extended for added dancefloor pleasure). If you're in the mood for something heavier and fuzzier, the "Short Re-Edit" of Jack Hammer's insatiable, spiraling funk workout "Swim" will have you dancing like you've got ants in your pants.
