First released as a white label single way back in 1980, Cloud's 'All Night Long' has long been considered one of the formative records of the Brit-Funk scene (a UK mutation of the then popular jazz-funk sound). Here the record gets the reissue treatment, albeit via a pair of multi-track re-edits by Brooklyn producer GE-OLOGY. His tweaks are tasteful, with the EP-leading 'Special Mix' delivering an extended take that does a great job in showcasing the loose-limbed disco-punk drums, post-punk bass, jazz-funk guitar licks and spiralling sax solos. Arguably even better is the near 10-minute flip-side Dub Mix, which strips the track back, adds some well-placed effects (mainly dub delay) and stretches out the groove for added dancefloor pleasure.
