Our “An Edit To Remember” series continues with a great rework from Spanish house wiz and Hivern Discs boss John Talabot. Let’s take a ride with his “dusty” edit of Cecil “Maestro” Hume’s 1976 track “Dread Man”. As he says: “When I’m on tour travelling I like to do edits. While waiting in airports, cars, vans, trains, customs, hotels, soundchecks I do them. This is one of my favourites.”
