PEDIGREE CUTS: Pedigree Cuts Remixed! (2013)

It’s that Pedigree Cuts lot again. No not the dog grooming service from County Durham – they’re hardly likely to put out a twenty-two strong remix compilation are they? I’m referring to Skeewiff‘s label of course. Twenty-two remixes? Have they got that many? Man, you don’t know the half of it – this is just the best of the recent ones. In fact this mainly consists of much of Skeewiff’s recent Man Turns Animal Remixed and Electro Swing & Gospel Breaks Remixed, plus remixes of Brand New Heavies’ Pedigree Cuts set Dunk Your Trunk and a few odds and ends like Finley Quaye’s Milk & Honey. Of course a remix compilation twenty-two tracks deep ought to be sagging under its own weight but like one of those fat people who turn out to be an implausibly good dancer, Pedigree Cuts Remixed! is rather sprightly.

Best remixes are Fab Samperi’s Mr Debonair featuring Nico soundalike Vanessa Contenay-Quinones, Omegaman’s latin groover No Puedo Esperar, AGFA’s Beat The Drag, Funk Ferret’s Brutha Noah – all remixes of Skeewiff originals – and Omegaman’s version of Brand New Heavies Milfshake – also the best named track on the LP. In fact I might go and have one of those now…
