Pete Wiggs’s Hard To Find Selection:

Pete Wiggs is one third of alternative dance trio, St.Etienne, for whom he co-writes songs, produces and plays keyboard on stage. He has co-written four issues of fanzine CAFF, assisted in the production of several Saint Etienne film projects and was involved in the running of two record labels alongside band member Bob Stanley. Nowadays Wiggs co-hosts weekly radio show The Séance on Brighton’s Radio Reverb and puts on Séance DJ events with fellow DJ James Papademetrie.

 

1. Dr John – Jet Set (Instrumental) 1984

 

This bizarre pairing of Dr John and Duke Bootee sounds better in its Dr John-less form, a great electro track which tantalisingly (for me in 1984)

a hypnotic slice of pre-acid disco much better IMHO than any other Sylvester offering, got a 7″ instrumental but like the ethereal vocals on the full version

 

3. The Sisters Love – Give Me Your Love (extended)

 

A 1980 (think) re-edit by NYC DJ Danny Krivit of a 1973 track penned by Curtis Mayfield, which extends the heavy breathing action. I love the subtler grooves of

Barbara Mason’s version but for wigging out this is the one
