Pick Of The Week #15: Pilooski

It seems like everyone is in love with the latest Adidas commercial. I have to admit I also enjoy the fresh vibe in between other boring commercials. The soundtrack by Dee Edwards (‘Why Can’t There Be Love’, 1972) is the main reason for that. That’s why our Pick Of The Week is related to that soundtrack this time.

It seems like everyone is in love with the latest Adidas commercial. I have to admit I also enjoy the fresh vibe in between other boring videos as well. The soundtrack by Dee Edwards (Why Can’t There Be Love) is the main reason for that. That’s why this time our Pick Of The Week is related to that soundtrack.

Info   

We selected a re-edit of Dee Edwards’ ‘Why Can’t There Be Love’ by a producer who goes under the name of Pilooski. He (real name: Cedric Marszewski) is known for his skilled edit techniques. He has the gift for transforming a soul jewel or a disco nugget into a psychedelic odyssey and he creates re-edits with a modern touch of a lot of old songs.

Music

The French producer also touched Dee Edwards’ ‘Why Can’t There Be Love’, which Adidas used a variant of in the commercial. We selected his original re-edit, appeared on Pilooski’s ‘Can’t There Be Love’ 12″ record. Also make sure to check out his ‘Dirty Edits’ (Volume 1 & 2), with re-edits of tracks by The Pointer Sisters, Prince, Sound Garden, Elvis and much more. Below you can listen to a snippet of his ‘Why Can’t There Be Love’ re-edit.
