It will serve as BBE's 500th release.
BBE founder Peter Adarkwah convinced Burgess—who made the 1982 original along with his Logg bandmates Sonny T. Davenport and James J. Calloway—to collaborate with Louie Vega and the legendary disco producer Patrick Adams on a new version of the iconic track. The trio's two remakes look back to integral strands of New York City dance music culture with respective house and boogie mixes. Both feature live strings from the Apple Hill String Quartet, arranged by Adams and Burgess.
