Review: As the title makes clear, this tasty 12" from Lovedancing sees Brooklyn producer Jacques Renault deliver fresh interpretations of killer cuts from the label's vaults. Renault first offers up a deliciously sweaty, loose-limbed take on Vagabundo Club Social and Sleazy McQueen's "Chips Y Salsoul", placing the original's familiar electric piano motif and muted trumpet samples atop a densely layered Latin house groove, before joining the dots between dub disco and proto house on a rework of Vagabundo Club Social's "Pambele". Over on side B he delivers two takes on Pontchartrain's "1515 Broadway Revisited": a lolloping disco-house "BK Club Remix" and a "BK Live Remix" that sounds like it was done in one take, dub style, in the same manner as proto-house legend Paul Simpson's influential 1980s mixes.
