Brenda Taylor, NYC Peech Boys - You Can’t Have Your Cake And Eat It Too / Don’t Make Me Wait (Dr Packer & Michael Gray Reworks)LABEL: West End Records
As no strangers to the West End Records back catalogue – both having taken on remix duties individually in the past – 2022 sees Michael Gray and Dr Packer combine to give two classics the Rework treatment. Brenda Taylor’s seminal “You Cant Have Your Cake And Eat It To” is finessed into a contemporary disco standard: Taylor’s voice still cutting through with plenty of soul while synth and pianos provide the groove. “Don’t Make Me Wait” cuts a slightly edgier tone, with acid-like bleeps and plenty of reverb making it a perfect counter track as part of this release. Another set of essential Reworks from West End.
