Three contemporary disco giants on one record… what more do you need to know?

As if bringing together two of the biggest names in contemporary disco on their respective sides of the Pond wasn't enough of a coup in the first place, Glitterbox take things to the next level now by drafting in original nu-disco don Ray Mang to work some remix magic. 

Sanctuary, as disco lovers will no doubt be aware, first appeared on Horse Meat Disco's debut artist album Love & Dancing back in October last year, and got a single-track 12-inch/digital release at the time. Now that it's back with the mighty Mang at the controls, what exactly is the poor reviewer meant to say? You already know this is a must-have, and I certainly have no wish to go all Theta Burn on any of the collective asses involved!  Suffice to say the original Extended 12" Mix is included for those who missed it the first time, while Mang supplies two refixes. His Extended Remix stripping out some of the more spangly top-end elements for a deeper, bassier pass, while the Extended Dubstramental does exactly what it says on the label. 

So yes: top-drawer tackle for sure, but then what else did you expect?
