Ahhh yes, the abridged version, where someone decides to just chop off parts they deem unnecessary. So not quite the same but a bit like someone deeming a modern overdub is necessary on a foundation tune. You know, adding or removing willy nilly to someone else's work.

I also hate it when modern songs are sung over classic original roots rhythms. Doesn't sound right.

Even these by Willi Williams https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKSrhDtRa1U and Luciano https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vtw2emy3K9g or that one Bitty Mclean On Bond Street?

No, no, no, that's not what I mean at all. I'm talking about when the original rhythm from back in the day is used. The Peckings / Bitty McLean stuff are examples of this but are not the roots rhythms I was referring to. There were some modern DJs on the old rhythms a few years back. Cringeworthy stuff. :(

Off the top of my head, Late Night Blues (the Don Carlos tune, not the Al Campbell one) is perhaps the best example I know of a "sparse" rhythm (highlighted in the dub, of course): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XsGFVZvrmg8 . Unless I'm mistaken, the bassline consists of just four notes repeated throughout.

Youtube lists the dub for that Don Carlos track as featuring on an MP3 compilation that's available on Amazon. Is the dub on any other CDs?
