This is a drifty and slightly disorientating Todd Terje edit of Paul Simon’s seminal hit Diamonds. There’s a lot to like about this one; I’m going to let it do the talking.
This track is another from Greg Wilson’s Top 10 Best Reworks and Edits. You can find the full list here.
This track has a confusing history; “Originally recorded in 1982 for a gospel album by the Celestial Choir, this was later remixed in 1985 by Tony Humphries, re-credited to The Joubert Singers. However, its more recent cult status was the result of a supposed Larry Levan remix, subsequently discredited, that appeared on a bootleg 12” in 2003.”
What is not confusing, is that it is a top quality hooky banger.

Here’s one for you. It’s a late night thudding disco special coming at you from Late Nite Tuff Guy. Is anyone better at taking classics and beefing them up for the dancefloor?
For the traditionalists amongst you, here is the original from 1976. Peak disco.
And if you thought you recognised the sample from somewhere , you did. It’s a classic from 2001 by The Girl Next Door.
Shout out to Dummy Mag and Greg Wilson for reminding me of this one. Link here.
