The Art of The Edit 

Disco has always been associated with the edit. Special edits for DJs have been created to extend the track for a longer DJ mixable experience. Today is no exception with some of our greatest heroes using their skills to tease, touch up and extend some of the biggest tracks to ever hit the dancefloor. With technology moving at an ever-increasing pace, it’s never been easier to edit your favourite track, most not legally viable to release. For the DJ it provides a brand new take on an existing track that provides a unique moment during the set. 

At Future Disco we have been creating our own edits over several compilation albums and below we pick out a few of our favourites from past albums for you to enjoy. Plus we also select edits from some of the greatest. Greg Wilson, Todd Terje, Dimitri From Paris and Gerd Janson.
