What is it about Springsteen tracks that lend themselves to incredible, melodic slow disco edits? Cousin Cole’s rework of “I’m On Fire” set the precedent, and now Martin Vogel’s matched that with an absolutely gorgeous edit of Bruce’s “Tougher Than The Rest.” It’s part of a collection of edits issued by Perseo, an off-shoot of the always-solid Italians Do It Better label. Stream it below, and go cop the CD (or the vinyl!) over at their store.
Been really enjoying the new Arcade Fire LP over the last week or so. This synthy bit of 80s disco (it owes quite a bit to Blondie’s “Heart Of Glass” but I don’t think anyone’s complaining) is my favorite track, it’s been getting plenty of repeats in my headphones. I especially love how breathy and tentative Regine’s vocals are in the beginning.
