Heat alert! For the first volume of Gator Boots, Soul Clap and the homie Nick Monaco come through with a killer collection of house re-works, perfectly suited to wreck any and all dance floors. First off, the selection of tracks they chose to edit is pretty unfukwidable - from Outkast's "Prototype," Mos Def's "Umi Says," to Willie Hutch and Grace Jones classics - and the execution is flawless. Check Nick Monaco's smooth housed-up versions of Outkast and Mos, done with care and respect to the originals, but with just enough bump to get things moving. So necessary! On the flip, Soul Clap take the same care and precision with their treatments of "Brothers Gonna Work It Out," and "Done It Again." Stamped white label copies, don't miss it!
