Snips Sunfire Edits NYC-based Brit Todd Worsnips has previous form when it comes to offering up must-check re-edits and reworks, though more often than not his selected source material is rooted in R&B and hip-hop rather than disco or boogie. He's flipped the script a little on Sunfire Edits by successfully taking his scalpel to vintage soul and jazz-funk jams. A-side 'Sunny Love' delivers a largely instrumental revision of Yambu classic 'Sunny', with Snips choosing that showcase the track's numerous all-action instrumental sections before gently beefing up the beats and introducing the chorus vocals. 'Dance of Fire' sees him rearranging Al Green gem 'Full of Fire', a fiery, funk-fuelled 1970s soul number given a contemporary spin courtesy of some subtly tooled-up drums and the producer's wise focus on the track's most energetic moments.
