As far as hush-hush re-edit/remix series go, it's hard to top the catalogue of Glasgow-based Secret Squirrel. The label's genius lies mainly in the club-ready, tried-and-tested nature of the untitled and un-credited rearrangements, which are handed to the imprint's well-known (but naturally secretive) chief by fellow working DJs. Volume 16 begins with an easy-to-mix dub style revision of an Italo-disco era classic, which strips out the original vocals and turns it into a much more locked-in late night groove. Arguably even better is the flipside excursion, a kind of two-step proto-house/early Chicago house workout blessed with some spine-tingling vocal passages.
