Though music aficionados have been calling disco edits the ‘new electroclash’ for a while now, they continue to proliferate like mushrooms, and despite the naysayers, some of the edits are quite tasty. Here, Portugal’s Social Disco Club takes The Sarr Band’s 1978 obscurity “Magic Mandrake,” pumps up the cosmic synths, stretches the beat out significantly, and cuts much of the silliness out of the vocal parts, making the track infinitely more sexy.
