Nancy Whang & Bonar Bradberry - Working The Midnight Shift
LCD Soundsystem and The Juan MacLean collaborator Nancy Whang and PBR Streetgang member Bonar Bradberry are something of a modern disco dream team. For their first collaboration, the pair cover Donna Summer's "Working The Midnight Shift." Of the three versions included here, the "Disco Version" shines brightest. It sees Whang and Bradberry take the track into Bobby Orlando-ish territory, with Whang's beautiful, goosebump-inducing take on the vocal floating over a big rolling bassline and sparkling disco synths. The "Radio Edit" has a more contemporary feel, with its spacey bed of warm beats, faraway pads and bass bleeps that occasionally give way to Whang's voice. The "Extended" version stretches these ingredients into a languid, epic treat.
