On "Luv Hangover"
Tel Aviv's Jean-Claude Gavri has a rising reputation in the edits world, thanks largely to a string of releases that provide sturdy, floor-friendly reworks of both well-known and relatively obscure jams. The general vibe is sweaty and upbeat, giving the impression that Gavri's primary concern is always the dancefloor.
On "Pulp Disco 2"
In the last six months, Tel Aviv-based producer Jean-Claude Gavri has come from relative obscurity to dominate the disco edit download charts. It's not hard to see why; his edits are dubby, percussive and floor-friendly, beefing up the original tracks without resorting to cheap tricks such as filters and super-compressed additional kicks. This second full-length collection of sneaky reworks features plenty of high-grade material.
On "Nite Dubbin"
Having made his name via a series of much-played re-edit releases, Jean Claude Gavri makes the move to original production with a sparkling two-tracker. The original version of "Nite Dubbin" begins with two and a half minutes of sturdy disco drums, before dropping into a mesmerizing, hands-in-the-air piano breakdown that seems to last an eternity. By the time the drums come back in, you'll be lost in music.
On "Edition Limitee"
Hard-working scalpel fiend Jean-Claude Gavri seems to knock-out heavyweight disco re-edits at a furious rate. Here he presents four more tried-and-tested reworks to tickle the fancy of confirmed disco deviants.
On "Sunny Side Up"
More from prolific scalpel specialist Jean-Claude Gavri, who appears to be attempting to set a record for the most releases in the shortest space of time.
