Back Fire/Lectric Love (PBR Streetgang Reworks)

Salsoul
Cult NYC disco label Salsoul opens up the vault and lets the PBR Streetgang loose on a couple of lesser-known gems from the catalogue. First up, David Christie’s deep ‘Back Fire’ (originally released on the Tom Mouton-run subsidiary of Salsoul, Tom N’ Jerry Records) gets detuned a couple of steps to a sleazy crawl. Not a great deal that a simple pitch control couldn’t do, but it’s a nice idea. Next, The Destroyers’ ‘Lectric Love’ gets quite a bizarre new twist: a similar method of pitching the tune down is employed (which, to be fair, does work again), and subtle disco effects are a nice touch, but THAT fantastic Moog synthesiser break on the original version is completely edited out. A fruitless effort, sadly.
