Time Of The Season
Cat: MXMRK 2037. Rel: 27 Nov 20
Broken Beat/Nu Jazz/Nu Soul
  1. Time Of The Season (edit By Mr K)
  2. Theme For Great Cities (edit By Mr K)
Review: Reaching deep into the earliest foundations of his voluminous collection, Danny Krivit presents a psychedelic pop classic rearranged for today's sound systems and setlists. Recorded in the Beatles' Abbey Road studio at the height of the Summer Of Love, the Zombies' "Time Of The Season" is firmly linked in pop culture to the late '60s and the Vietnam era, although it almost never made it out to a wider audience. Ignored on its initial release, it was given a second chance by the label as the last gasp from a band that had officially split up a year before. This time around the song steadily gained fans and word-of-mouth plays in the U.S. and by the summer of 1969, two years after it had been recorded, "Time Of The Season" was ubiquitous and well on its way to being firmly enshrined as an emblem of the era.

Krivit's edit highlights the parade of lush sonic textures that ornament the hip composition, from the iconic, exquisitely echoed bass-clap-exhale riff that opens the song to the cascading Hammond organ solos of Rod Argent. Naturally, this MEU issue keeps the audio quality at its highest level, the better to appreciate these nuances. "It's a song from my childhood that really struck a chord," Danny says. "Over the years I often played a rough edit which always seemed to go over great. The song seemed to get better and better, and age like fine wine." We agree!

From flowers and incense, we move to glass and steel. "Theme For Great Cities" envelops us in a soaring, intense groove, as emblematic of the post-punk no wave style of 1981 as "Time of the Season" was to its own era. Produced by Gong's Steve Hillage, this futuristic instrumental is a bit like Bowie's wordless works with Eno, with an added downtown edge. "The original really struck me," Danny recalls, "especially at Roxy in the early '80s hip hop nights, on that Richard Long sound system... It really blew me away with its atmosphere!"

Danny's edit combines the lean and mean original with a trackier remixed version, cleanly lifting off on an epic ride that clocks in at nearly ten minutes. With the revised rhythm section and its quick-punched low end sandwiching the meat of the original's punishing drums and aggressive, picked bass line, Mr. K gives us the best of the expanded sonics of the remix without losing the atmospherics of the original take.

One Step Back Two Steps Front

Disco/Re-Edits
  1. One Step Back, Two Steps Front (Mr K edit) (8:05)
  2. Funk It (Mr K edit) (6:40)
Review: Rejoice all serious disco edits heads, we have another batch of highly sought after treatments from the mighty Danny Krivit available here for your delectation. First up is "One Step Back, Two Steps Front", a powerful '80s jam that splits the difference between prime-time soft rock, disco and soul - the power lies in the stirring impact of the vocals to create a truly spellbinding dancefloor moment (as soon as you have the chance to experience one). "Funk It" is a more classically funky work out with a smattering of Hi NRG histrionics to match the heavy boogie of the rhythm section.

Disco/Re-Edits
  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).

Boogie Land
Cat: MXMRK 2010. Rel: 13 Nov 17
Disco/Re-Edits
  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.
