Then to round off, we're focusing on our own label, 45 Live Records....lend an ear. We be celebratin'.

    Rev. Edna Isaac: Beautiful world

    As I've already mentioned, everything released on Moton is an edit.....so generally, tracks that are re-arranged, re-eq'd with more often than not, added percussive elements. Bootlegs are straight lifts of an artists work....edits are a totally different market and mindset, pressed in small numbers, to appeal to a particular type of dancefloor. I doubt many edits are licensed, unless tracks like Blueboy's 'Remember Me' start to take off and sell many 1,000's....then a license would be required, f'sure.

    Rev. Edna Isaac: Beautiful world

    OK, so....Moton Records, Inc. is a re-edit label. Various producers under various guises rework tracks and turn them into club friendly records. They've been on the circuit for many years and have released a number of tracks that have become DJ tools. None of their releases are carvers.....they are pressed in relatively small quantities so to actually make any money out of them is virtually impossible. It's really done for the love, quite honestly. I've released two 12"s with them, re-editing a total of 5 tracks....re-arranging, eq'ing and adding additional percussive elements to beef the tracks up for a modern club setting. The track in question in this thread was reworked by David Hill (ex-Nuphonic) and sharpens the original Greene Sisters cut into a floor stompin', compact and concise winner. The identity of this track has been known for some time in clubbing circles, and only now is it trickling into the 'northern' sect....thanks to plays by Mr. Fish, and I guess me too....it's been a fixture in my playbox (for the relevant clubs) for some time. Hope that answers a few questions. Cheers!
