More tight edits from The Fanstasy, Detroit...TIP!
1 Summer Night in Harlem 6:16
"Harlem", Bill Withers, USA,1971
One of the finest songwriters America has ever seen, Bill Withers crafted this song while he was still working at the factory. Recorded for his debut album, this song was regrettably recorded and arraged according to 1971 standards, with the bass drum almost inaudible, and the arrangement code of pop and soul keeping the song to a criminal 3 minutes. This mix attempts to reverse engineer a Tom Moulton mix of a song that never had one, but deeply deserves that kind of love.
2 If You Want Your Fantasy 6:32
"Come on People", A.R. & Machines, Germany, 1971
An often overlooked Kraut Rock gem from 71, with a kind of Bo Diddley beat to it. It is possible to listen to the original 3 minute version over and over all day long, so we just made a mix that better facilitates all day listening, as well as the ability to play it on ridiculously powerful sound systems.
3 I'm Warning You 5:59
"Gardens of the Pure", Chris & Cosey, England, 1984
If you aren't from Chicago, you might not know the original jack groove came from this Throbbing Gristle offshoot. I can only imagine Ron Hardy melting the minds of the Music Box with the original of this. This mix attempts to unleash the full power of the insane monster inside the original of this song. Freaky. And ultra hypnotic.
4 I Like What I Like 7:52
"I Like What I Like (Because I Like It)", Everyday People, Canada, 1971
From the inception of disco, it was pioneering DJs playing 2 copies of this intro to extended it out forever, to get lost in this strange Sly Stone inspired Canadians known as Everyday People tribal jungle intro to "I Like What I Like". Well we like about every song that references Sing, Sing, Sing or Gene Krupa, so this lost gem was begging for a Fantasy reshape, highlighting their weird bird-call-lost-in-the-psychedelic-tribal-rock-soul-eternal dawn of disco moments.
