Crucial repress of an obscure Honest Jon's gem from 2004, when the label was slightly more "anything goes" than they are now (just slightly), with French house legend Pépé Bradock putting his touch on a pair of vintage tracks from Southern soul sweetheart Candi Staton (which I've been pronouncing 'Candi Station' until last week). "Erectus Rework" is Pépé's (don't call him Pepe The Frog!) now-classic house take on "Do Your Duty," while "Reconstruction A Rebrousse Temps" is a more subtle edit of "Evidence," flexing his hip-hop roots. The bizarre and disorienting "Sweet Interludes," though, are the ones that are still stunning us in 2018; executed in Pépé's bleeps 'n splurts stylie that's been his go-to in the years following "Deep Burnt," sounding like a dubplate transmitted from some alien disco warship. 2018 repress in Honest Jon's disco sleeve, recommended.
