The involvement of vintage disco mixer John Morales in the making of Tuxedo's eponymous debut album added an air of authenticity to Jake One and Mayer Hawthorne's revivalist '80s funk, soul and disco jams. Here Morales goes one step further, providing a quartet of dancefloor-leaning reworks of album tracks. The A-side features two versions of "Watch The Dance"; a sparkling, full vocal version and the superb, stripped back "Watch The Dub", in which Morales revisits some of his more often-used production tricks of the '80s. Flip for the heavy synth-bass, clipped guitars and D-Train style synthesizer doodles of the anthem-like "Right Time", and Morales' take on album standout "So Good" - a thoroughly positive chunk of '80s boogie goodness built around Hawthorne's sumptuously wide-eyed vocals.
