Contrary to his usual style, Greg Wilson actually shortened the instrumental a bit with this edit. In his own words:
Previously limited vinyl only 2008

This edit (peppered with additional spins and samples) first appeared on Ruff Edits #2 as ‘Scandinavian Safari’ - the original, ‘Safari’ by Modern Sound Corporation, being a track I used to play at my hometown club, New Brighton’s Golden Guinea, back in 1979. For my edit, I placed the emphasis on the superior instrumental ‘Pt 2′ version, which found favour in UK Jazz-Funk circles at the time, its unique combination of African and Caribbean flavours setting it apart as a dubbed-up percussion driven Disco hybrid.

Arriving on import via TK’s Sunshine Sound label, prior to its UK release on Epic, it was assumed that this was hot out of Miami – but there was a strange but true twist to the tale, as it turned out to be of Swedish origin, having first surfaced in this unlikely location the previous year. It was, however, remixed by Florida’s finest, Harry Wayne Casey & Richard Finch, from KC & The Sunshine Band.

"Some people just wanna clean the city up. You know, you get sick of these junkies and freaks everywhere. Skulking around, following you, grabbing your wife. But that Tom Guycot got in too deep. Sure, he rattled all the punks good for a while. But after A-Number-1, The Big Man got word of him and that chain, Tom didn't have a chance..."

40 Years of Philly Intl with JSki

I'm really honored to be a part of a new compilation that commemorates the 40th Anniversary of one of the most influential labels of all time, Philly International Records. I have an official remix of "Wake Up Everybody" by Harold Melvin and The Blue Notes (f/ Teddy Pendergrass) on there. Todd Terje and other great editors on there as well. There are tons of new Tom Moulton mixes, a 10 CD retrospective, numerous re-edits and a 60-page booklet. Huge undertaking! Thanks to Kenny Gamble, PIR and Sony/Harmless/BBC records for the opportunity! So humbling to be associated with this great label.

I especially wanted to thank Juan Jay Negron, aka JSki (not to be confused with the Philly J-Ski), who was responsible for lots of the logistics with this project. If you frequent the DBJ soundcloud group, you'll notice that Jay is a super-prolific edit maker. He's been in the game for decades now, and he's got great taste! I wanted to shout Jay out and encourage all y'all to check out his work!
