Real Dance Music for Real People
Dre Mace | CA - USA | 07/20/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is not a mixed CD. These are original remixes by the famous DJ Larry Levan of the Paradise Garage. If you are a fan of "Disco?", "House", "Deep-House", "Garage", "Chicago-House" or whatever you want to call it, you will appreciate this set. There are too many standouts for me to type, but me 3 favorites are Skyy - 1st Time Around, Instant Funk - Crying, Inner-Life - Make It Last Forever (became a Paradise Garage Anthem). Note the remixes are all extended versions with plenty of instrumental and vocal emotion."
LARRY GIVES SALSOUL CLASSICS AN EXTREME MAKEOVER!

"By that I mean remixed. If you find yourself buzzin off live at Paradise Garage, you should get the same amount of satisfaction from this. Larry took Salsoul favorites and remixed them to max effect. along with Westend, Salsoul have a reputation of creating some of the hardest hittin dance music known to man. With Larr behind the boards handlin these bad boys, expect to feel like a kid who had too much sugar! You'll be bouncin' off the walls and through the roof.

I especially love how he bring in the precussive breaks in certain tracks such as the garage house standard "I got my mind made up" courtesy of Instant funk and Bunny Sigler's "By the way you Dance". If you love the latter track on his paradise Garage mix CD, you definately need to check for this version. As opposed to the 7 minute version on Paradise Garage, this version is ten minutes long. His emphasis precussive breaks and that powerful hook makes that version sound more intricate than the one on Live at Paradise Garage. But that's a drop in the cocktial glass to other tracks on this album. First Choice is reliably soulful as always on "Double Cross" (the string loop at the beginning alone is worth a a double take), Instant funk is repsrented by several other stellar remixes such as, "Crying", "Everybody", "Slap Slap Lickedy Lap", and "Bodyshine". Slap Slap is a sleazy piece about oral sex that rivals "Nice and Naasty" as being the sexiest track in the Salsoul catalog. Of course you get the ultimate garage anthem with Inner Life's "Ain't no mountain high Enough" amongst others.

Overall this is every bit as gratifying as "Live at Paradise Garage". While it doesn't have the cinematic rush of that that album, Salsoul Mixes is the hardest and heaviest anthology between the two. Every disco and househead on this planet should have this collection. on the surface this may seem like another Salsoul anthology but, with Levan housin' s&*!, he'll bring it down and leave us there to pick up the pieces!

More than Highly reccomended!"
