Lab Overview

"First up is an extended edit of the Frankie Beverly and Maze sureshot 'Before I Let Go.' Originally released on the best-selling 1981 Live In New Orleans LP, the track was not actually a concert recording but a new studio track made to fill out the final 'D-side' of the double album live release. 1991 saw the notable edit on Moo Records that quickly became a DJ favorite with its skillfully extended intro and outro. Some 30 years later it can be revealed that this was the work of beloved NYC DJ and editor Gail 'Sky' King, a formidable technician with the razor and tape, who considered this one of her best works. 'Gail’s edit was unfortunately pressed at the lowest quality,' Danny Krivit explains, 'and as good and useful as the edit was, I often chose not to play it because of its harsh quality.' Working from a new, high resolution source, Mr. K carefully recreated some of King’s iconic highlights, while optimizing it for the 7-inch format. Our flip side is a bit more unusual, but also a fun and funky one. 'Hollywood’s Message' was a self-released single from legendary hip-hop pioneer DJ Hollywood. In this case however, as a backing track for his rhymes Hollywood took a shortcut and used the renowned 'Love Is The Message' edit created by Mr. K that repeatedly runs the groovy clavinet break from MFSB’s tune. Mr. K tightens up the instrumental chant version for it's first time on a 7" release, also adding a touch of Millie Jackson 'Now That I Got Your Attention Again' at the top of the song as an intro, which in itself could be used to introduce almost anything, all custom fitted for 7-inch vinyl." - Most Excellent Unlimited
