It’s been a long time coming, but we are very proud to present the second official Edit Club edit!
Only Children have come correct with a version of the Brothers Johnson’s Stomp. A little bit of filtering here, some reverb there, a punchier kick, some careful looping and you have something that is every bit as bumpin’ as their MJ edit.
We can’t wait to hear this on sound systems all over the city in the coming months.

why not take me for a spin?
For the first proper Edit Club post: An edit of my favorite Daniel Wang song! It is my firmly help belief that this track contains some of the finest hi hats ever recorded by man.
In keeping with the idea that edits should be fairly conservative (usually) in what they do with the source material, I haven’t really done very much. The intro is a little easier to mix, the break is a bit choppy/glitchy, a few other things… But really, you don’t want to mess with a track of this caliber too much.

It is about time we got started, late as usual.
There was going to be a brief explanation of THE PLAN for Edit Club, but given the low chance of us sticking to what little we had in the way of planning, why bother?
We are some friends. We are going to make edits for ourselves, and for you, and post them when they are done. While we will probably lean heavily towards disco, there are no rules as to genre. Collaboration with each other is likely as well!
The ideal is one edit every month or so from each of our contributors, but the chances of everyone sticking to that the entire time are small. We’ll see how it goes.
But in the coming hours/days/lunar cycles, expect things from the likes of:
And probably some other people that we know, like or stalk on the internet.
While you’re waiting on that stuff, enjoy this classic (read: old) edit done by the de-facto President of Edit Club, Todd Terje.
