Onur Engin is one of the few producers whose edits consistently hit the spot. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Engin has a subtle touch, an approach that pays the source material due reverence. More often than not, this old-fashioned approach pays dividends. This ninth volume of his popular OE Edits series boasts four more hits, from the spiritual disco-funk of "Expansions" (a re-cut of Lonnie Liston Smith's original), to the sweaty closeness of Roberta Flack re-version "Feel Like Makin' Love". For the Balearic heads, there's also a delicious version of Santana's "Aqua Marine", and a dash of spiritual jazz in the form of "Maracatu". They'll go like hot cakes, so don't sleep.
