With their sumptuous grooves, attention to detail and relaxed soulfulness, the Common Edit releases have quickly become must-have items for those who seek re-edits crafted with a deft touch. Here, the Canadian label drops another tasty hand-stamped 7" featuring typically sensual reworks from friends of the family Khotin and Dane. "Jospehina's Groove", all low-key soft shuffle, winding synths and sensual strings, is particularly impressive, not least in its reverential approach to the source material. There's a little more of a cosmic flavour to the deep, woozy grooves of "Prince Video", whose space noises, lazy synth bass and tumbling guitars occasionally give way to sublime strings.
