Tokyo's Edit & Dub Recordings seem to put a lot of thought into their releases. Their first two 12" singles boasted unreleased scalpel works from Tee Scott and Larry Levan respectively. Their latest missive is titled NYC 1980 Special Disco Version, and contains a pair of subtle period reworks of popular club smashers of the time. The A-side boasts a superb revision of MFSB's Philadelphia International classic "Mysteries Of The World", which wisely concentrates on the loose-but-tight groove and the original's deep, life-affirming synth lines. On the flip, Francine McGee's wild "Delirium" gets the scalpel treatment, with the un-credited editor making merry with the original's intense electronic piano solos, clipped guitars and stretched-out synthesizer lines.
