✈

Older tunes, incredibly reworked – all numbers that appeared in original versions on previous Counterpoint Records compilations, but presented here in whole new versions! Over the past decade or so, Counterpoint has become one of our most trusted sources for unusual grooves – always right on the money when it comes to picking rare tunes for its excellent compilations. But along with those compilations, Counterpoint has also commissioned new takes on the music by a variety of current and cutting-edge talents – artists like Nicola Conte, Bugz In The Attic, Yam Who, Beatfanatic, and others – all of whom have remixed and remade tracks for limited edition Counterpoint singles. Most of these tracks were only available for a short time, and only on vinyl – but this set brings the best of them back, along with a few other side projects that were never issued at the time – all in a beautiful flurry of tunes that link together the past and the future through a set of magical grooves! Titles include "It's You (Nicola Conte rmx)" by Sunaga T Experience, "Suite Guaracho part 2 (Beatfanatic re-edit)" by Tata Vasquez, "Parenthe-Seizure (Les Gammas rmx)" by Sheila Landis, "In The Name Of Love" by Ernesto, "Everything (Yam Who re-edit)" by Dwayne Morgan, "The Way It Used To Be (Misa beats)" by Misa Negra, "Zouk" by Ennio Styles, "Summer Love (Beyond There remix)" by Billy Wright, "No Other Love But You (Nick The Record re-edit)" by Clarice Labbe, "Wilderness" by Speedometer, and "25 Hours part 2 (DJ Friendly re-edit)" by Lanier.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
