ODDS ‘N’ BODS
THE FIRST issue is out this week of rm’s sister magazine, the new monthly for DJs, JOCKS – so check the advertisement for details, should you not have received a copy. Supplementing rather than replacing these BPM pages, it’s designed as a complement to rm and carries totally different charts, including many interestingly detailed breakdowns by area and music type, plus a much wider range of news and opinion than there is room for here … Tony Blackburn is now playing Oran ‘Juice’ Jones ‘The Rain’, but only the seven inch version which ludicrously leaves out the vital talking finish, the whole point of the record and the controversial cause of its US success – are CBS mad? … Ian Dewhirst splits from Serious Records next month to take over running Fourth & Broadway … Phil Fearon’s next cover version revival is of the Showstoppers’ 1967 classic ‘Ain’t Nothin’ But A House Party’, due imminently (how long before he gets around to the Cornelius Brothers & Sister Rose?) … Shep Pettibone has not necessarily improved Lionel Richie ‘Love Will Conquer All’ with his stolidly plodding (0-)99¼bpm extended remix (Motown LIOT 2R) … Anita Ward ‘Ring My Bell’ has had a new drum track added on reissued import (US Sunnyview Classics SUN 3309) … Bob Dylan is the surprise guest rapper on the droning 98bpm ‘Street Rock‘ on the new Kurtis Blow ‘Kingdom Blow’ LP (US Mercury 830 215-1 M-1); full review next week … Morgan ‘Southpaw’ Khan is making his favourite group available for a fantastic bargain, putting all 12 tracks of Blue Magic’s ‘Greatest Hits’ LP on one £3.99 12-inch (Streetwave XKHAN 508)! … Jessica Martin is the amazing impressionist featured as the Monty MC’s on ‘Holiday Rap With A Capital C‘ … Barbara Roy topped US Club Play, Stacey Q returned atop 12 Inch Sales in Billboard … Disco breakers here last week, with really quite strong support yet possibly still struggling outside the Top 100 (currently tough to get into), included Lionel Richie, Tamiko Jones, George Duke, Billie, Was (Not Was) remix, Schoolly-D, Billy Griffin, Company B, Robbie B & Jazzy J, Dazz Band, Steinski, The Naturals, Lady Peachena and The Movement … Rick Davis (01-669 8082, evenings) is looking for weekend PAs at Uxbridge Regals … Tuesday (21) Hardrock Soul Movement and Faze One are live at London’s Limelight … JACK THE HOUSE!
LIVE WIRE’s soul weekender in South Wales at Barry Island was at the most compactly laid out holiday camp yet, beautifully sited (especially for sizzling Saturday), overlooking a sandy beach with one of Britain’s better fun fairs for free right next door. Working conditions were the best the DJs had ever encountered, but for some the actual accommodation was a bit primitive, and there were complaints from serious funksters of an ’18-30′ element in this, the biggest weekender crowd to date. Fatback played three hugely popular shows, the highlight of the event, though, being Georgie Fame’s Saturday lunchtime gig, which got him right back to 1986’s equivalent of his original 1963 audience. As anticipated, ‘Samba‘ got played a bit! The other surprise sensation was Jesse Saunders cutting up a storm at the decks, extending and remixing Chicago’s house hits ‘live’, and in fact house was so predominant that the “der rump dump dum dum dump dum” rhythm seemed at times to be running through everything! Lots of oldies, jazz and – note this – rap was played, but current stuff that stood out included Steve ‘Silk’ Hurley, Raze, Hercules, The Force, TC Curtis, James Brown ‘Goliath’, One Way, James (D-Train) Williams ‘Misunderstanding’, Company B, Sybil, Oran ‘Juice’ Jones, Lady Peachena, Kurtis Blow, Al Jarreau ‘Tell Me What I Gotta Do (Remix)’, while two big oldies were Younger Generation ‘We Rap More Mellow‘ and Kinkina ‘Jungle Fever‘. Alexander O’Neal ‘What’s Missing’ tore the roof off – the hit that CBS totally bungled! For the finale each DJ ‘sang’ a line from Side Effect ‘Keep That Same Old Feeling‘, and Chris Hill did one of his inimitable swinging raps to Boogaloo Joe Jones ‘Six Thirty Blues‘. A good one, and as if to prove it, already 2,000 applications have been received for the next one, again at Barry, which for the first time will be well into the season and spread over four days, the May 22-25 Bank Holiday weekend!
RAZE ‘Jack The Groove’ (Champion CHAMP 12-23)
Cramming floors across the country, this Steve ‘Silk’ Hurley-style rhythm chattering 118⅔bpm jack track in fact was produced by Vaughan Mason in New Jersey, despite sounding pure Chicago!
GEORGIE FAME ‘Samba (Toda Menina Baiana Mix)’ (Ensign ENYX 605)
Created specifically for the Barry Island weekender, this Stock/Aitken/ Waterman-produced fast flying 102⅔/205⅓bpm samba is, as the title suggests, a purpose-built translation by Georgie himself of Gilberto Gil’s ‘Toda Menina Baiana’, the 12-inch starting in the original Portuguese while the B-side’s edit starts straight into English. Irresistibly infectious, it really bubbles and leaps along.
COMMODORES ‘Goin’ To The Bank’ (Polydor POSPX 826)
Enthusiastically leaping 116bpm chanter with some amusing double-entendre dialogue between a female bank teller and the group’s English-accented J D Nicholas about making an “early withdrawal” (dub/edit too, plus the also 116bpm slightly ‘All Night Long (All Night)’-ish snappy ‘Serious Love‘).
CHICO DeBARGE ‘Talk To Me’ (Motown ZT 40887)
All this powerfully stamping 114½bpm wriggly judderer needs to be the male answer to Janet Jackson is a “gimme a beat!” intro.
SYBIL ‘Falling In Love’ (Champion CHAMP 12-22)
Languidly ticking 113¼bpm classy cool strider with gentle piano (112⅓bpm Alternative Club Mix plus two more), seemingly everyone’s hot tip of the moment.
CONVERTION ‘Sweet Thing (M&M Mix)’ (Threeway Records Way 101T, via Charly)
The latest Leroy Burgess-associated oldie to be reactivated with immediately massive white label sales, in London at least, is this catchily wriggling 110-110¼bpm soulful guys ‘n’ gals nagger, pressed at 33⅓rpm.
PAUL HARDCASTLE ‘The Wizard (The Jazz Mix)’ (Chrysalis PAULJ 3)
Totally re-recorded for the soul clubs, the now unrecognisable ‘Top Of The Pops’ theme has become a piano tinkled 101⅚bpm jazz-funk instrumental (minus Catweazle) powered by jiggly electronic percussion, much better!
CALVIN ‘Time Keeps Movin’ On’ (US VinylMania VMR 005)
Donnie Calvin of Rockers Revenge growls and wails in offkey, almost Darryl Pandy, style to a wolf howls-introed ever building jittery 117bpm driver with datedly powerful breaks (in four mixes).
COMPANY B ‘Jam On Me’ (US The Summer S-1986)
Hard to find until now in London although frustratingly charted for some time by several DJs further North, this girls-chanted wriggly jiggly nagging (0-)113¼-113-113½-0bpm Latin-disco jitterer (in five versions) really is quite mind-numbing, co-created by Ish (Ledesma?)
J M SILK ‘I Can’t Turn Around’ (RCA PT 49794)
Vocally more restrained 125¾bpm rival to ‘Love Can’t Turn Around’, correctly credited to Isaac Hayes as original writer (in four mixes).
PRIVATE POSSESSION featuring HUNTER HAYES ‘This Time’ (US 4th + B’way BWAY-428)
Oops, I’m not so sure that this urgently bounding strong 120⅔bpm Colonel Abrams-ish ‘house’ galloper is old, after all; it just sounds confusingly familiar (in three versions, including a Darryl Pandy-ish rap).
ROSALINE JOYCE ‘Friends Not Lovers (Hot Club Mix)’ (Elite DAZZ 57R)
Far stronger than before, this locomoting 109½-110bpm remix of the male rap counterpointed sweet wailer now incorporates a burst of ‘Cloud Nine’, well worth checking.
BILLIE ‘Nobody’s Business’ (Club JABX 36)
Billie Holiday’s ‘Nobody’s Bizness If I Do’ adapted by producers Regisford & Jarvis into a ‘house’-styled 122bpm skittery bounder (in three versions, one a UK re-edit), likely to mean more here now than it did on import before this tempo had broken big.
VENEICE ‘This Good Good Feeling’ (LGR Records LGR 013, via Jet Star)
Peter Hinds-produced classily controlled London soul smoothly sung to a jauntily jiggling 102bpm bouncy beat (inst/edit flip), selling well already.
TRACY KING ‘Don’t Stop’ (DMD Records DMD 002, via 01-689 5871)
Gurglingly sung, rather pleasant swaying 93⅙-0bpm tugger with a more Jam & Lewis-styled though less slick 89bpm ‘Love Again‘ double A-side coupling.
ROLAND RAT ‘Living Legend (Rat In My House Mix)’ (Magnet 12RAT 5)
The Rat only appears on the flip’s edit, leaving two Stock/Aitken/Waterman-produced girls-cooed bounding 119¾bpm versions that even down to the fractional Beats Per Minute mix imperceptibly with Mel & Kim! Really!
JAMES BROWN ‘Goliath’ (LP ‘Gravity’ Scotti Bros SCT 57108)
Capital Radio’s Peter Young turned more ‘UK Pros’ than he knows onto this full tilt 126-0bpm stormer, brassily driven by Art Wood’s drums, making it the cream cut from a fairly typical JB LP.
BEASTIE BOYS ‘It’s The New Style’ (US Def Jam 44-05958)
A biggie for b boys, this angrily rapped, scratched ‘n cut violent stark episodic 0-98⅔-0-77bpm Run-DMC clone also has a straight dub of its underlying ‘Paul Revere’ rhythm track, plus two very strange minimalist 46/72bpm treatments.
THE KARTOON KREW ‘Batman’ (Champion CHAMP 12-21)
Deliberately jolting 100bpm hip hop treatment of the old TV theme, including dialogue and effects (dub flip), as originally suspected already a hit with radio listeners.
DAZZ BAND ‘L.O.V.E. M.I.A. (House Mix)’ (Geffen Records GEF 12T)
Remixed by Farley ‘Jackmaster’ Funk with a dubbier Clubhouse Mix too, though neither are actually ‘house’, this perkily chugging 117½bpm burbler catchily quotes from ‘Let It All Blow’ but somehow lacks substance. ‘M.I.A.’ means ‘Missing In Action’.
THE FORCE ‘It’s O.K., It’s O.K.’ (US Jes Say JS 9989)
Jesse Saunders-created typical 118¼bpm jack track with, in ‘Jack Your Body’ style, the digitally repeated stuttery title line its only lyric, flipped by four different dub breakdowns.
BEAT THIS ‘The Spen’ (US Ace Beat AN-52486)
More jack trax from New Jersey, this striding strong 122⅓bpm leaper leading the calmer 120bpm ‘Sagitarian‘ and 121⅔bpm ‘Paul Off Again‘, raspberry-blowing 0- 122¼bpm ‘Halelujah’, intended as the sleeve says for (mixing) DJs only.
AFFINITY ‘Pick Me Up (Rock Me Non-Stop)’ US Pow Wow PW 417)
Bubbly bounding fast 119½-0bpm skitterer sung rather thinly by Sixties-sounding girls, the beat being all important (two dubs as flip).
P.S.O. ‘Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’ (US Sunnyview SUN 446)
Wriggly bright 0- 117½bpm jiggler with a dated feel as synths squiggle through the nervy electro beats and girls chime in between bursts of nagging male interplay (in four versions).
ANTHONY AND THE CAMP ‘How Many Lovers’ (US Warner Bros/Jellybean 0-20515)
Jellybean-produced intensifying spare wriggly loping (0-)118bpm typical New York dance fodder vocally worried by Serious Intention’s Anthony Malloy in almost ‘house’ style (dub/acappella too, plus a lean 117¾bpm ‘What I Like (Remix)‘).
RAZZ featuring MATT WARREN & RALPHI ROSARIO ‘Pump It Up’ (US Sunset Records Inc SUN-2766)
Four more Chicago jack trax, this skittery 120½bpm cowbell clonker, the frantic chattering 124¾bpm ‘Kill Yourself Dancing‘, Hi-NRG 125bpm ‘Say It‘, Spanish muttered livelier ‘house’ 125⅔bpm ‘Razz-Matazz‘.
BASIA ‘Run For Cover’ (Portrait 6501 586)
Rather introverted juddery jittery (0-)112bpm electro samba in breathy RAH Band-ish style by Matt Bianco’s old girl (pronounced ‘Basher’!), with a good instrumental flip and much more breezily bossa nova-ing 102bpm ‘From Now On’.
SWING OUT SISTER ‘Breakout (N.A.D. Mix)’ (Mercury SWING 212)
Throbbing eccentric white boys’ funk gives way to jazzy brass before some mellow girls start cooing and the 112¾bpm rhythm levels out to become rather pleasant and convincing jazz-funk.
A PERFECT FIT ‘If You Only Knew’ (Move MS 16, via Charly)
The group’s name possibly doesn’t prepare one for a gospel trained soulstress wailing and worrying to a gently ticking (0-)106-105⅓-105½bpm rhythm with jazzy guitar support, a pure soul gem.
SHARON DEE CLARKE ‘Dance Your Way Out Of The Door’ (Arista ARIST 12682)
Ian Levine-prod/penned pleasantly hustling 0-114½bpm dated Gloria Gaynor-ish swinger currently much played on London radio, to producer Damon Rochefort’s delight.
NICOLE ‘Housecalls’ (US Portrait 4R9-05949)
M&M remixed jittery beats slightly bury this urgent hustling 119¼-0bpm canterer’s soulful vocal (dub flip), seemingly about callgirl activities. Incidentally, it’s John Morales calling in on the ‘phone!

One thought on “October 18, 1986: Raze, Georgie Fame, Commodores, Chico DeBarge, Sybil”
So the Dazz Band are the first established non house act to release a house mix of their latest release – soon everybody will be having them.
