Tangoterje - Like An Eagle (TTJ Edits)

A bit late on this one due to a busy holiday schedule, but better late than never. Stellar record here on TTJ Edits featuring a couple of tracks I've been playing mp3's of recently - for the simple fact that they haven't been available on wax. But now these extremely well produced edits are finally available on one hot black little disc courtesy of Tangoterje. This guy's been known by most for cutting and rehashing many great lost and forgotten funk, soul, rock and what have you for a while, which seem to pop up here and there on digi, and when we're lucky we get a few of em' on wax (most recently being the amazing Diamonds Dub 12" on Supreme from not even two months ago).

Dennis Parker's 'Like an Eagle' is the first to get Terje's midas touch, a glorious disco tune that gets morphed into a more playable and dj friendly dancefloor bomb. Many listeners might instantly make the connection to the original where snippets of the recent massively successful tune 'Barely Eagle' can be heard. The B side offers us 'Fizheur Zieheuer', a very playful version of the old gypsy trumpet folksong 'Pobjenicki Cocek'. An odd tune this, but perhaps useful to throw in sometime to clear punter's heads if the mood is getting all too serious for ya. Finally and possibly my pick of the bunch is a track I've been playing so much of recently: the fantastic Terje edit of Stevie Wonder's 'All I Do', favourited in many sets such as the (dare I say) legendary Betalounge set by Maurice Fulton; "This is not Gloria Estefan...this is Stevie Wonder..".

Pick up this spectacular record HERE and enjoy some reworked faves handpicked by one of the great edit selectors. This one's a limited press and these Tangoterje 12"s don't stick around the shelves very long!
