Legendary DJ, remixer and edit exponent Greg Wilson is back at it again with the third instalment of his hugely popular "Credit To The Edit" series. Almost a decade on from Volume 2, "Credit To The Edit – Vol. 3", released 4th April via Tirk Recordings, draws on music from the Disco and Rave eras, adding a seminal Hip Hop cut, a Balearic favourite, as well a few contemporary tracks from the last 10 years.

A groundbreaking DJ, Greg played a key role in introducing black electronic dance music to the UK via his early '80s residencies at Wigan Pier, Manchester's "Legend" and "The Haçienda", as well as over the airwaves on the city's Piccadilly Radio. Working with Technics turntables, a Revox reel to reel tape machine and a razor blade, Greg carved out his reputation as a UK pioneer and champion of Electro-Funk. Whereas, more recently, following his 2003 comeback after a 2-decade hiatus, he's gained international renown at the vanguard of a now global re-edits movement.

Next up on Tirk we head back in time to revisit the defining track of one of the 80's most under-rated bands, Love And Money. "Strange Kind Of Love" was the title track from their 1988 album, which was produced by Gary Katz of Steely Dan fame. Although selling over 250,000 copies the album, the band never quite made the mainstream breakthrough they deserved.

"Strange Kind Of Love" is a track which simply does not date. It still sounds as fresh today as it did back in 1988. The track’s wide appeal from the Scottish 80's pop sound to Ibiza chillout 5am classic is testament to the polished production, intelligent lyrics and expansive instrumentation.

TIRK088: Klein & MBO - Dirty Talk

When it comes to influential dance records “Dirty Talk” is right up there. Slant Magazine placed "Dirty Talk" at number 37 on its 100 Greatest Dance Songs and it sits happily in the top Pitchfork 500 of greatest tracks from Punk To Present. Creatively “Dirty Talk” has spread its inspirational tentacles through literally hundreds of records in the past 30 years. The most famous example being New Orders Blue Monday which came out a year later in 1983 (if you have 10 minutes spare just try playing them side by side). The grooves, arrangements and sounds have provided more than a few touchstones to house, electro pop and beyond.

The original single was created in Milan in 1982 by Italian producer Mario Boncaldo and American Electro-Soul-House master Tony Carrasco. It went on to become both a dance floor and mainstream hit in the USA, Europe and all over the world. In 1982 there were 25 pressings from record labels all over the world.

TIRK087: Various Artists - 10 Years Of Tirk

As the great Louis Armstrong said: there are only two types of music, good and bad. If there's any one who knows where to find the good stuff it is Tirk Recordings founder and A&R man Sav Remzi.

Over the last two or more decades, a belly full of passion and a superbly open-minded approach to music has led Sav on a magpie-like flight across the land of music, unearthing both new and under-represented artists from the past, touching on soul, disco, house, hip hop, reggae, electro, funk, jazz, Afro-beat and many uncanny fusions in between. With more than just an ear for great music though, he has made a career of reaching out to the music makers themselves and convincing them to let him introduce their work to a new audience. Seemingly always a conduit of taste and artistic talent, its fair to say he has a knack for channeling good music to both people and scenes.
