For many years Dave and Steph played different edits and versions of this disco classic in 2manydjs and Despacio sets.
Their 'Soulwax for Despacio Remix' was released on digital platforms on June 25, 2021 with a 12" release on October first.
From the press release:
'Unlike other remixes where we usually replace most of the elements and make something radically different based around the vocal, we made this remix using only the parts we found on the original multitrack that we were so kindly given by the Sylvester estate.
Even though we have played this song a million times we discovered a few elements that we had never heard before, like a crazy Patrick Cowley synth solo and somewhere hidden before the start of the multitrack, the ending of what sounds like a gospel version of ‘Mighty Real.’ It was a huge privilege to be asked to remix this seminal track and we hope that Sylvester will dance to it, wherever he is.
