4 Tracks of Rework / Re-edit Action From All Star Cast - Best of Compilation of Rare gems From Early Catlog oF A&R Edits
A&R Edits Revisited is a new series of 12” EPs from Greg Wilson’s vinyl-only label. Drawing from its diverse back catalogue, this new series sees the label re-issuing some of its evergreen classics, presented for the first time as four-track EPs, each showcasing the work of four different producers. Re-launched in the late summer of last year, A&R Edits has re-established itself as one of the authorities in the re-edits scene.
Between 2013-15 the label released edits and reworks from Henry Greenwood, Derek Kaye, Sophie Lloyd, Fingerman, Peza and Twisted Soul Collective – gifting them a platform to further their reach whilst servicing the continued growth of the scene. After four years of activity, it lay dormant for another four and returned in 2019 with the GW & Henry reworks of El Coco’s smooth grooving esoteric disco cut ‘Mondo Disco’ and Marshall Hain’s brooding Balearic treasure ‘Dancing In The City’. Whilst 2020 saw a follow-up in the form of Moplen’s edit of Tavares’ classic disco stomper ‘It Only Takes A Minute’ coupled with Greg Wilson’s edit of Moplen’s edit of Larry Levan’s mix of David Joseph’s ‘You Can’t Hide (Your Love From Me)’, if you can follow all that!
The label will continue to release new material via this original series and now will be introducing its older material back into the mix with a new series. A&R Edits Revisited #1 will feature Henry Greenwood’s electrically charged rework of Neneh Cherry’s 1988 classic ‘Buffalo Dance’; Peza’s delicate yet driving update on The Blackbyrds’ slice of sunshine, ‘Walking In Rhythm’; Derek Kaye’s lively reinterpretation of The Player’s Association’s 1979 disco stomper ‘Turn The Music Up’; and Sophie Lloyd’s bass-heavy revision of Herb Alpert’s much-sampled groove, ‘Rise’. A&R Edits hopes to bring some light to the darkness of modern times with these updated gems from our shared musical history. Having inspired audiences in the past, they can now serve to inspire a new generation of music lovers.

The term Various Artists is used in the record industry when numerous singers and musicians collaborate on a song or collection of songs. Most often on Last.fm, compilation album tracks appear under the name of Various Artists erroneously because the individual artist is not listed in the album's ID3 information.
Sometimes, single releases may be credited to Various Artists when their profits are going to charity and, usually in high-profile cases, are sometimes known by a group name. Examples include Band Aid with their releases of Do They Know It's Christmas? and USA for Africa with We Are the World.
Various Artists is also an actual performance name for Torsten Pröfrock, who runs the German DIN label. Torsten performs also as Dynamo, Erosion, Resilent, Traktor besides some others. He's a good friend of Robert Henke and since fall 2004 he is a member of Monolake.
