1 September 2016, No. 186, Sister Sledge, ‘Thinking of You (Dimitri from Paris Remix)’

I don’t think Sister Sledge’s “Thinking of You (Dimitri from Paris Remix)” contains any musical elements that aren’t from the original recordings. It’s just an edit and a different mix, which can be great sometimes, and this is one of those times. Better than the original and featuring a big a cappella intro and vox/piano outro, No. 186 still has that funky free guitar and even makes good use of the strings in a break toward the end. Chop ’em up, change the levels, and the Chic Organization is still in full force. Plus the tune says nice and uplifting things about love, which always complements a good groove.
