The return of Editions Disco! These limited 12"s are always chock full of the rarest gems, and that's why they get spun by everyone from Gilles Peterson to James Murphy, Carl Craig to Lindstrom, yadda yadda. This time around, Lee Douglas (who you might know from his dope single on Rong) chops up an obscure Belle Epoque track on "Bamalama." If you liked the Rong single, you'll go for this - it's thick with that old school Italo vibe and tons of arpeggiated synths. The A-side has "Yo Son," a Prince Language edit of an 80s track so obscure that we don't even know the artist or title! This is Language's own secret crate shit, and it's described as "Remain In Light-era Talking Heads backing an Arabic R&B group." (ed. note - it's an edit of Ahmed Fakroun's "Soleil Soleil"). Sign me up! Plays at 45.
