What happens when classic disco gets reimagined by EDM stalwarts? In the case of Dance Your Ass Off (Salsoul Remixes), the results are as uplifting as they are electrifying.

Classic Salsoul recordings like Loleatta Holloway's "Love Sensation," Inner Life's "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," and First Choice's "Love Thang" are the backbone of the project. But its modern electro, house and nu disco producers like White Noize, J Paul Getto, Federico Scavo and the Cube Guys who bring that label's vintage 12-inch sides into the present.

New York DJ and Ultra Records' artist David Waxman is the brain behind the all-new compilation. The outcome is an album of club music that should thrive alongside tracks by modern dance giants like Daft Punk and Cut Copy. Dance Your Ass Off (Salsoul Remixes) is due out on September 3rd.
