Finding a Cure…Once Again

Ashford & Simpson

It seems like a “Match made in Heaven” when it comes to Dimitri From Paris re-editing a classic Ashford & Simpson track. We saw the first example of this back in the year 2000, when Dimitri’s amazing re-edit of “Found A Cure” was included on A Night At The Playboy Mansion mix compilation, which happens to be a personal favorite of mine. Well earlier this year on a new Ashford & Simpson ‘best-of’ type of compilation, The Warner Bros. Years: Hits, Remixes & Rarities, we saw the two come together again with Dimitri this time re-editing the 1979 classic “Stay Free”. Even though the new edit of “Stay Free” isn’t quite as ripe for the prime moments on a dancefloor as “Found A Cure”, the more laid back edit is equally as good in my opinion. Dimitri does a nice job touching up and extending the finer moments of the original, making the song just right for those early hour dancefloor or coll-down mixes. Nice results again from this solid combination.
