Happiness (12")
Cat: MXMRK 2026. Rel: 16 Sep 19
Disco/Re-Edits
  1. Happiness (Mr K edit) (8:20)
  2. As (Mr K edit) (7:41)
Review: Once again here edit king Mr. K turns his attention to one of the many hits penned by New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint. This time it's a 1978 tune from The Pointer Sisters that they still use as a concert opener whenever they play, despite the fact it didn't chart that well on release. That didn't stop it becoming a dance floor hit though, here the synths are polished up and drawn out with an added acappella and the whole thing dazzles. On the flip is an excellent edit of Gene Harris' cover of Stevie Wonder's transcendent "As", fine-tuned for 2019 and beyond with emphasized percussion and a sinewy extension that cuts the bulk of the lyrical intro and lets Harris's electric piano and the all-star choir shine.

  1. Boogie Land (Mr K Tribute To Larryl edit) (8:18)
  2. Lady, Lady, Lady (Mr K instrumental edit) (6:35)
Review: Supreme edits from the one and only Mr K: "Boogie Land" explores the insane P-Funk gold of Ike Strong with full emphasis on the obese walking bassline, gutsy backing vocals and layered riffs, all extended with hypnotic glory. "Lady, Lady, Lady" is a dramatic rearrangement of the instrumental version of Boogie Man Orchestra where the pianos and strings are placed centre stage and squeezed for every ounce of drama and disco theatre. Insanely good.

  1. Love The Life You Live (Mr K edit) (4:25)
  2. Drive My Car (Mr K edit) (6:54)
Review: Most Excellent Unltd continues to delve into the reel-to-reel edit archives of Mr K, AKA legendary New York DJ Danny Krivit. This 12" contains two more heavyweight bombs. First up in "Love The Life You Live", a hustling chunk of Blaxploitation era disco-funk from Kool & The Gang that Krivit brilliantly builds into a frenzy of sweaty drunk breaks, relentless horn lines and fuzzy bass guitar. Over on the flip, the native New Yorker takes his scalpel to a little known cover version of Beatles' favourite "Drive My Car", stripping out the vocals to leave heaps of percussion, a killer bassline, rousing horns and hard-wired funk guitars that sound like they've had a few tabs of acid. The resultant edit is a seriously heavy dub-disco treat that bears almost no resemblance to the "Rubber Soul" classic (or the Gary Toms Empire's version that he edited up, for that matter).

Mr K Edits (heavyweight vinyl 12")
Cat: RNT 038. Rel: 16 Oct 19
Disco/Re-Edits
  1. Stuff (Mr K edit) (9:03)
  2. The Story (Mr K edit) (7:05)
Review: Having previously persuaded some of the re-edit scene's biggest names to contribute reworks, Razor-N-Tape has now recruited the Grand-daddy of the scalpel scene: 1970s disco original Danny Krivit AKA Mr K. He begins with "Stuff", a deliciously epic revision of an atmospheric and joyous disco cut rich in snaking synth solos, evocative instrumentation and glassy-eyed vocals. Krivit teases the tune in slowly, eventually cutting loose as the nine-minute edit reaches its final few minutes. Side B is all about "The Story", a jaunty and musically complex instrumental disco number that contains some fantastic orchestration, spacey 1970s synthesizer flourishes and heady female backing vocals.

  1. Live In Me (Mr K edit) (4:13)
  2. Warm Weather (Mr K edit) (5:32)
Review: Two powerful edits from the Krivit vaults: "Live In Me" is a beautiful rearrangement of the Rod Temperton and Quincy Jones composed Rufus & Chakka Khan 1979 classic. Warm, touching with just the right amount of urgency, it's often overlooked as didn't enjoy a single release at the time. Flip for an equally stirring take on Pieces Of A Dream's "Warm Weather" and Danny ensures our full focus is firmed on that lavish bass and those purring honeyed vocals. Quintessential rare groove.

Funk/Reissues
  1. Pursuit Of The Pimpmobile (Mr K 7" edit) (5:44)
  2. Isabelle & The Rain (Mr K 7" Breakdown edit) (5:28)
Review: 1971: Isaac Hayes redefines what a movie theme can be with the worldwide sensation "Shaft," single-handedly making wah-wah rhythm guitar and racing hi-hats a prime ingredient for the decade of music to come. The huge success of "Shaft" meant Hayes was in demand to bring his vision of cinematic funk to other films, and in 1974 he scored (and starred in) the Blaxploitation B-movie Truck Turner. It's from this soundtrack that "Pursuit Of The Pimpmobile" is drawn. The progression Hayes made as a composer is clear: "Pimpmobile" uses complex layered guitar lines with brass and string sections that build and cascade over each other and takes the "Shaft" formula to an entirely new level.

The song became a firm favorite with funky DJs in the '70s, from the refined space of Mancuso's Loft to Bronx and Harlem jams. Indeed, when the Zulu Nation DJs began spinning at a downtown roller disco / dance club called The Roxy in the early '80s, it was firmly entrenched as one of their favorites. Another resident DJ at The Roxy was Danny Krivit, who was already well acquainted with the song and the effect it had on dancers. For this latest addition to Most Excellent Unlimited's steadily expanding catalog of Mr. K 7-inch edits, the master editor distills the sprawling nine-minute original down to a fit five-and-change, maintaining all the muscle that made this one a perennial champion of New York City's varied dancefloors.

The quirky "Isabelle And The Rain" was also a key cut for deeper DJs, uptown and downtown, albeit often on bootlegs as the original was, and remains, extremely scarce. Very little is known about the obscure jazzy cut, the work of a largely anonymous bunch of Los Angeles studio veterans led by keyboardist Mike Lang, whose electric piano solo is the song's defining feature alongside the driving drums, which get plenty of space to shine on Mr. K's Breakdown Edit.

The audio fidelity and peerless editing of these essential tracks - virtually nonexistent on 7-inch vinyl before now - makes the latest from Most Excellent Unlimited a can't-miss addition to the playout box of any DJ with a funky floor to rock.

  1. What Can I Do For You? (Mr K 7" edit) (5:37)
  2. Messin' With My Mind (Mr K 7" edit) (5:34)
Review: Best known to the world at large for their disco evergreen "Lady Marmalade," the powerhouse trio of Sarah Dash, Nona Hendryx and Patti LaBelle are revered in the deeper dance underground for a couple of epic soulful rock workouts that have been known to provoke life-changing moments on the dance floor. With New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint producing and leading an all-star band with the Meters at its core, "What Can You Do For Me" and "Messin' With My Mind" crackle with energy and rise to thunderous crescendos that rival a gospel revival. Mr. K's edits acknowledge these songs' long history in NYC DJ culture, dating from the Gallery and the Loft in the mid-'70s and running unbroken to today, with masterful extensions that push the inherent energy even further without ever becoming repetitive or obvious. Most Excellent Unlimited is proud to present these sure shots on loud and carefully mastered 7-inch pressings, an essential addition to any gig box or collection.

One Step Back Two Steps Front
Cat: MXMRK 2029.
Disco/Re-Edits
  1. One Step Back, Two Steps Front (Mr K edit)
  2. Funk It (Mr K edit)
Review: The latest collaboration between Most Excellent Unlimited and veteran DJ and editor Danny Krivit takes the form of a 12-inch single celebrating the hardcore high-energy sound that often fueled nights at the Paradise Garage - uptempo and passionate.

Betty Wright was a queen of modern soul music whose career bridged multiple generations and musical styles. She made her professional debut at an impossibly precocious two years old with her siblings' gospel group and scored an international pop hit with "Clean Up Woman" when she was just 17! The single went gold in 1971, the same year Danny Krivit began professionally DJing and was the first among many records of Wright's that would become important in Krivit's sets. While he regularly featured the mid-tempo stepper "I Love The Way You Love" and the bright, funky "Where Is The Love," given our focus on high-energy Garage classics Mr. K's pick from Wright's oeuvre for this single was naturally "One Step Up, Two Steps Back." A 1984 release produced by Amir Bayyan, younger brother of Ronald "Kool" Bell of Kool & the Gang and a successful producer who was infusing the early '80s club scene with quality cuts like "Funn" by the Gunchback Boogie Band, "Give It To Me" by Conquest and two strong singles from Tomorrow's Edition. The sound of "One Step Up" is prototypical big drum mid-'80s, with the added touch of a Morales & Munzibai Mix on the 12-inch. "Not many other people knew how to play it the way Larry did," Krivit recalls, "It had a lasting affect on me, which inspired this edit". This version Focuses on the intensity & building of Larry Levan only using the key elements of the dub mix, and emphasizing the late-song emotional peak of Wright's vocals, giving it a much tougher edge.

Eddy Rosemond's recording career may have been but a brief flash compared to Betty Wright's, but his song "(Wake Up And Move) Funk It" punches well above its weight on the flip of this high-energy Garage excursion. Riding giddily over a peak time disco groove, the singer from Martinique's similarity to Sylvester is uncanny. For a Garage audience who adored Sylvester's signature sound but were left unmoved by a lot of his '80s releases, "Funk It" became a surrogate for the sound they'd come to love. Krivit's edit rightly features the much-sampled cosmic synth hook, still sounding futuristically funky as ever, and loses none of the frantic power of the original.

I Love You More (limited 12")
Cat: MXMRK 2028. Rel: 12 Mar 20
Disco/Re-Edits
  1. I Love You More (New vocal edit) (9:03)
  2. I Love You More (instrumental edit) (7:50)
Review: Scalpel-wielding re-edit legend Danny Krivit has reworked one of his all-time favourites, Rene and Angela's 1981 boogie classic "I Love You More". He has previously reworked the track, but the edits here are brand new. On the A-side you'll find his fresh vocal extension and rearrangement, which naturally rolls out the killer groove - all liquid synth-bass, cascading lead lines, clipped guitars and ear-catching piano motifs - before unleashing the original's deliciously glassy-eyed and soulful vocal. Over on side B he's revisited his original instrumental re-edit, further emphasizing the cut glass strings, spacey synth solos and infectious groove. It's as loved-up as they come and arguably even better than his vocal take.
