January 14, 1989: Tyree, Fast Eddie, Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock, Turntable Orchestra, Adeva

BEATS & PIECES

Last week’s Hammy Awards may have seemed a bit dry and dull, mainly because for some reason there didn’t seem to be room for most of the more personal ones, so here’s a recap…

DON’T POINT THAT THING AT ME (it might be loaded): James Brown (‘Papa’s Got A Brand New Mailbag’?)

GIMME A BEAT AND I CAN LOSE IT (in a tape edit): what sometimes seems like most studio engineers!

“HULLO, MICHAEL, ARE YOU AND BUBBLES FREE ON MARCH THE 14TH?”: Tony Prince of the Disco Mix Club (now with a hard act to follow)

HIS SHOES HAVE NOT BEEN FILLED: Steve Walsh

N-SIGN RADIO’S TV STAR: Tim Westwood

‘TOP OF THE POPS’ VIDEO STAR (if only for two seconds!): MC Jammy Hammy

PERFECTION TAKES TIME: Les Adams

SIX MONTHS’ SUPPLY OF LOBSTERS: Adrian Webb of LiveWire (that being what each Prestatyn weekender pays for!)

A TOPLESS STRAP OR A STRAPLESS TOP?: Joyce Sims


UK heats of the Technics DJ Mixing Championships next week are at Manchester’s Hacienda (Monday 16), Liverpool’s The State (11), Nottingham’s New York New York (18) — be there! … Concorde Artists’ 1989 World Dance Championships appeared to be televised live from the Hippodrome last week in a cheap looking production, relegated to two o’clock in the morning — the winner, not that the result has had much relevance for several years now, was deservedly Nigeria’s Bimbo Gomero, helped immensely by his heavily fringed white clothes which moved in syncopation with his African dance steps (interestingly, Rhythm King supplied all the contest’s music, by such acts as S’Express, Bomb The Bass, Beatmasters and Jay Strongman, which was an advance over the Nigel Wright produced cover versions of previous years!) … Martin Collins seems to be joining Capital Radio … Tim Raidl is updating his DJ mailing list for Jack Trax and the new Garage Trax labels – send exhaustive work details to him at Define Promotions UK, 68 Sunningdale Round Green, Luton, Bedfordshire LU2 7TE … GTI Records likewise are building a mailing list, contact either Peter Harris or Errol Henry at 282 Westbourne Park Road, London W11 1EH (01-221 8698) … Carol Leeming may be from the Midlands but, press release notwithstanding, Boyz In Shock members Paul Denton and Dean Zepherin are actually from Harrow in North West Greater London … Lindsay Wesker points out that Seduction’s opening “fraternity chant” is by Dan Ackroyd and Eddie Murphy from the railway car scene in ‘Trading Places’ … Alan Coles, Mark George and Mike Wilks spin modern and independent soul this Saturday (14) at Maesglas Working Men’s Club in Newport, Gwent … Paul Oakenfold’s Mondays at London Charing Cross’s Heaven are now known as The Land Of Oz … GIVE IT SOME OF THAT, KID!


HOT VINYL

TYREE ‘Tyree’s Got A Brand New House’ (US DJ International Records DJ 1016)
Not maybe quite as consistent as his labelmate The DJ Fast Eddie’s LP but dominated by the already massive (and coincidentally ‘Yoyo Get Funky’-like) ‘Turn Up The Bass’, an incredibly exciting 123½-0pm “house rap” leaper using Lyn Collins’s ‘Think (About It)’ “wooo – yeah” amongst many hip hop samples, Tyree Cooper’s nevertheless good album has also the James Brown grunt punctuated strong acidic striding instrumental 125½bpm ‘T.J.G.P.‘, vocodered galloping old 127⅓bpm ‘Acid Over’, stuttery 124½-0bpm ‘House Line‘, almost Rick Astley-ish 123½bpm ‘I’ll Never Let You Go‘, bland acid rap 125¼bpm ‘Acid Is My Life‘, girl nagged tinkling 123¼-0bpm ‘Let’s Get Together‘, smoothly talking 121-0bpm ‘Life‘, datedly twittering 125bpm ‘Acid Overture‘, and Black Riot ‘A Day In The Life’ adapting 122½bpm ‘T’s Revenge‘ — not though one of the also 122½bpm mixes on the separately 12-inched

TYREE ‘T’s Revenge – It Takes A Thief’ (US Underground UN 128),
this routinely acidic choice of single being in stuttery Julian Jumpin’ Perez, twittery Fast Eddie’s Acid Mix, jumpily percussive Tyree’s Remix and all three combining Joe Smooth’s Mix versions.

FAST EDDIE ‘Yo Yo Get Funky’ (US DJ International Records DJ 968)
The other track that’s really setting the pattern for what must surely become a “hip house” craze, this terrifically exciting Lyn Collins ‘Think (About It)’, Maceo & The Macks ‘Cross The Track’ and other funky samples woven jumpily rapping 125½bpm flier is in Original Radio form or broken down into different repetitive elements for the Woo Yea!, Funky Music, Tyree’s Funky Beats, and Use To Hearin mixes. However, despite this being by far the hottest hit on his album too, instead the UK 12 inch is

THE DJ FAST EDDIE ‘Hip House’ (DJ International Records DJINT 5, via Westside Records),
which samples Hashim’s ‘Al-Naafyish’, in 122⅔-0bpm LP Version and meIlower Deep Mix plus more routinely 0-122⅔-0bpm Nightmare Mix treatments, coupled also by the synth washed and twittered jerkily leaping instrumental 123⅓-0bpm ‘I Can Dance (LP Version)‘. Get the LP instead!

ROB BASE & D.J. E-Z ROCK ‘Get On The Dance Floor (The “Sky” King Remix)’ (Supreme Records SUPET 139)
Another of the big hip house trendsetters, following in Todd Terry’s wake, this exciting fusion of the Jacksons’ ‘Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground)’ bassline and Black Riot’s ‘A Day In The Life’ synth riff — about the use of which an injunction may in fact be delaying its full UK release – is here in Gail “Sky” King’s less dense 118⅓-0bpm remix and 118½-0bpm Surgical Dub, 118⅓-0bpm E-Z Rockin’ Bonus Beats, and the still superior (as beefier) 118½bpm Original Album Version.

TURNTABLE ORCHESTRA ‘You’re Gonna Miss Me (Extended Club Mix)’ (RePublic Records UCT 012)
The garage sound of deepest New Jersey, this Hippie Torrales and Paul Scott co-created excellent piano nagged unhurriedly jittering 115½bpm burbling groove with a mournfully droning fellah and midway Spanish ‘phonecall from Anna Quinones has belatedly become one of the biggest garage smashes (original Dub and Tellapella ‘phonecall plus new Radio Edit too).

ADEVA ‘Respect (12” Extended Mix)’ (Cooltempo COOLX 179)
The Club Chart’s first new number one of the New Year, this Paul Simpson mixed superb fluidly weaving bass and synth bubbled (0-)118⅚bpm girl wailed garage adaptation of Otis Redding’s soul classic (harder edged 117½bpm Ruff Vocal Mix and 119bpm No Respect Dub too) suddenly finds itself with a rival, Jack Trax having cannily kicked off their new “garage” label with her earlier Easy Street recorded

ADEVA ‘In & Out Of My Life’ (Garage Trac GTX 1),
a more ramblingly wailed piano plonked jerkily spurting wriggler in 121½-0bpm Club, 0-121½bpm Radio and 121½bpm Dub Mixes, sure to be hot as well though more specialist.

TEN CITY ‘That’s The Way Love Is’ (Atlantic A8963T)
Eagerly awaited, though not necessarily as strong as their last two club smashes, this group penned and Marshall Jefferson co-produced soulful strider is in two very different treatments, Steve ‘Silk’ Hurley’s vigorously thumping 119⅔-119¾-120-0bpm so-called Acieed Mix and Timmy Regisford’s more subtle nervily garage-ish 0-120¾-120½(last break)-120¾bpm Underground Mix, while a tempoless acappella of the old ‘Devotion’ is billed as a Radio Mix and replaces the promo pressing’s strings accented smoothly pulsing 120½-120¼-0bpm instrumental.

FINGERS INC. ‘Can You Feel It’ (Jack Trax JTX 20, via PRT)
Ethereal deep house classic repressed in its original semi-“machine washed” 111¾-0bpm instrumental version, with a previously unreleased 112¾-0bpm vocal version languidly worried and nagged by Robert Owens, the big attraction though being the 112⅔-0bpm “spoken word” flip on which the instrumental is now at last overdubbed (as became popular at last summer’s trendier Balearic gigs) by Dr Martin Luther King, Jr’s “I Have A Dream” sermon, which fits the ebb and flow of the music perfectly. Released in fact to coincide with his birth date, half the record’s proceeds will be donated to the Martin Luther King Foundation in Atlanta, Georgia.

PETER BLACK ‘How Far I Go’ (US DJ International Records DJ 957)
Excellent gospel-ish jerkily cantering stormer combining richly wailed soaring harmonies with jangly keyboards and staccato beats in the very varied 122bpm House, 0-121½-0bpm House Music (Joe Smooth Mix), 0-121½-0bpm Acid House, 0-121⅔-121¾bpm I Go Radio, and 121⅔-121¾-0bpm House Appella treatments, thoroughly recommended.

SHEENA EASTON ‘The Lover In Me (Extended Version)’ (MCA Records MCAT 1289)
Greeted here with suspicion on import, scoring big sales spurts but few actual DJ returns, this huge US “black” smash is to my mind more soulful than the likes of Pebbles or Jody Watley, on LA 8 Babyface created excellent jauntily chugging jiggly 114bpm trotter with a catchy “shoo-doo wop” hook, rippling piano, squeaking sax and pattering percussion (Instrumental/Bassapella flip). It’ll be a hit.

STERLING VOID (Vocals by Kevin) ‘Runaway Girl’ (ffrr FFRX 21)
Massive already on pre-Christmas pre-release and presumably intended for specialist club sales rather than for the Gallup singles chart, as just one side nudges the qualifying duration limit, this 33⅓rpm six-tracker couples the current Kevin moaned and worried leaping deep house import (the 122¾bpm Runaway Radio Mix, 123¼bpm Pimp Dub and 122¾-122⅔bpm Desperation Dub here for some reason being exactly 1 bpm faster!) with the older and calmer hi-hat hustled STERLING VOID & PARIS BRIGHTLEDGE ‘It’s All Right‘ (in 119¾-0bpm House Mix, 119¾bpm Dub, and Acappella versions), this particular Paris being a guy.

CCDP ‘Love Fever (Fever Mix)’ (Jive CCDP T1)
Hamish McDonald’s Culture Clash Dance Party debuts with a powerful Adonis produced girl nagged forcefully pounding 118⅙-0bpm semi-acidic chugger (in three mixes), all driving momentum like the Beatmasters meeting S’Express but with fewer frills!

RUBIX ‘The Party’ (German ZYX Records ZYX 6019)
Very useful girls sung bashing (0-)124-0bpm cover version of the recent Kraze smash, initially hard to find but now exploding, with Italian language and “Sex” Versions as further alternatives (A Cappella too).

CA$H MONEY & MARVELOUS ‘The Mighty Hard Rocker’ (Sleeping Bag Records SBUK 5T)
1988 Technics World DJ Mixing champion Cash and his rapper Marvelous have made this Public Enemy-ish fierce 106½bpm rumbling jitterer their UK A-side (106⅓bpm Instrumental), putting DJ Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince-type jauntily jiggling 93bpm ‘Find An Ugly Woman‘ (Instrumental too) on the flip here. Meanwhile, selling fast on reputation just before Christmas, their tracks crammed but slightly disappointing datedly downtempo and murky import album,

CA$H MONEY & MARVELOUS ‘Where’s The Party At?’ (US Sleeping Bag Records TLX-42016),
has the good scratching and cutting 0-101bpm ‘The Music Maker’, 0-97⅓-0bpm ‘Ugly People Be Quiet (Remix)’, (0-)104⅙bpm ‘All About Partyin’’, chugging 102bpm title track, amusing 0-93⅓bpm ‘Marvelous’ Drawers’, jiggly 0-107-0bpm ‘Who’s In The Place’, funky 95⅚-0bpm ‘A Real Mutha For Ya’, catchy (0-)97⅔-0bpm ‘Time Is Up’, dull 0-98-0bpm ‘Ugly People Be Quiet’, (0-)92-0bpm ‘Is It Real’, 92⅙bpm ‘Play It Kool’, above 12-inched 106½bpm ‘The Mighty Hard Rocker’ and 93bpm ‘Find An Ugly Woman’.

MICHELLE AYERS ‘Another Lover’ (Garage Trax GTX 2)
Blaze created excellent if specialist naggingly weaving, jangling, gurgling and wailing soulfully sung garage shuffler, in 0-121bpm Club Mix, 0-121-0bpm Dub Mix, 114⅔bpm Blassin’ Mix, 113¼bpm Acappella, and 0-113¼-0bpm Bass Apella, the flip’s mixes being not only slower in tempo but also pressed at 33⅓rpm.

PAULA BRION ‘Excuses’ (US Tommy Boy TB 925)
Described as “the dance debut of Paula Brion”, which suggests that its stridently wailing diva may possibly be known in other fields, this ramblingly nagged powerful chugger is archetypal New York “garage”, in driving (0-)118⅓-0bpm Vocal Club, clanking 118⅓bpm Excuses For The Birds Dub, cantering (0-)118⅓bpm Liars Choice Dub, thudding 118bpm Radio Edit mixes.

DEF JEF ‘Give it Here’ (US Delicious Vinyl DV1003)
Peter Brown ‘Dance With Me’ based and Joe Tex quoting jauntily wriggling 105⅚bpm jumpy good rap, leading a strong six-tracker that also has the Cheryl Lynn ‘Got To Be Real’/Gaz ‘Sing Sing’/T La Rock & Jazzy Jay ‘It’s Yours’ based fast talking 102⅚bpm ‘On The Real Tip‘, and slinkily rolling also maddeningly familiar 94½bpm ‘Just A Poet (It Feels Mighty Fine)‘, plus their instrumentals.

JOE SMOOTH ‘Promised Land’ (US DJ International Records DJ 1018)
Patchy deep house-ish album with the Anthony Thomas sung inspirationally galloping 126bpm title track (previously 12-inched), joyously galloping 124⅓bpm ‘Going Down‘ and Rick Astley-ish 122⅓bpm ‘I Try‘, Joe Smith sung mystically muttered deep house 121⅔bpm ‘Perfect World‘ and dreadful turgid Jimi Hendrix reviving 0-106⅔bpm ‘Purple Haze‘, Michael Benson sung falsetto jittery skipping 117⅓bpm ‘I’ll Be There‘, shrill Renee Mohannon wailed garage (0-)114½bpm ‘Can’t Fake The Feeling‘, Reggie Hall sung jerky 113⅓bpm ‘Oh So True‘, Shawn Christopher sung crawling 62⅔bpm ‘He’s All I Need’.

PHORTUNE ‘String Free’ (US Hot Mix 5 Inc HMF 14)
Ralphi Rosario mixed piano jangled insistent good jerkily bounding instrumental in 124¾-124⅔bpm Club LeRay and less fierce (0-)124¾bpm Dash Riprock Mixes, flipped by the Mickey ‘Mixin’ Oliver mixed, Spanky (a chap) muttered 123bpm heavy bass burbled ‘Can You Feel The Bass’ in House Mix and more twittery Can You Groove Me versions.

LUTHER VANDROSS ‘She Won’t Talk To Me’ (US Epic 49 08178)
Instead of the exciting Clivilles & Cole remix (apparently disliked by Luther), we get this now Keith Cohen remixed and Jeff Lorber keyboarded rather routine canterer in thumping 116¾-0bpm 12” Extended Version, tighter 116⅔-0bpm 7” Club, more busily trotting so-called (and still vocal) 116½-0bpm Acid House Dub, and trickily tapping 116⅔bpm Percapella mixes, possibly an uninspired choice for the US market where he’s only just finally started crossing over properly to the pop chart.

MIX MASTERS ‘House Express’ (US DJ International Records DJ 954)
Literally locomoting (with train whistle blasts, and useful sound effects at the close of side one!) jittery house chugger in six different mixes, Ralphi Rosario’s thrumming 122¾bpm Whey Mix, Tyree’s twittering 122½bpm Transfer Mix, Boogie’s stuttering (0-)122¼-0bpm Express Mix, Fast Eddie’s acidically churning 125-0bpm Hurtin Mix, Martin Luna’s frenetic 125¼bpm Home Boy and (0-)124¼bpm P-P-Pumped Again Mixes.

SMOKIN’ GANG ‘Crazy Claps’ (US Hot Mix 5 Inc HMF-EP-11)
Simple but strong repetitive house four-tracker ringing the changes on a basic 124bpm beat with this “clap your hands” stuttered thudding striding chugger, the similarly structured though otherwise different title line repeating twittery ‘Move Your Big Booty (Acid)’, again differently title lined “drain” clonking percussion Latin House, while the (0-)124bpm ‘Take It From The Top’ combines “clap your hands” with the acidic twitters plus its own title line to be perhaps strongest of all.

GUY ‘Teddy’s Jam’ (US Uptown/MCA Records MCA-23922)
Teddy Riley and Gene Griffin created very exciting ultra-jiggly rolling go-go hip hop-cum-P’funk fusing jumpy “swing beat” jitterer, punctuated by ‘Tramp’ and other break beats and crammed with beat losing staccato edits in its (0-)107⅙-0bpm Extended Version, 0-107-0bpm Bonus Beats and Radio Edit, 0-110⅙-0bpm Hype Mix and Hype Beats, 0-105⅓bpm Teddy’s Jazz treatments. There may not be much song but it’s a good happy feeling.

BAR-KAYS ‘Struck By You’ (US Mercury 872 103-1)
Kenni Hairston co-created, Dave “O” Ogrin remixed, ultra jauntily happy jiggler with the current go-go hip hop “swing” that here combines both Teddy Riley’s influence and their own old dated style, good funky fun, in 97⅚bpm 12” and A Capella, 0-97⅔bpm Dub and (0-)97⅚bpm 7” mixes (Mark Berry remixed old 125¾bpm ‘Your Place Or Mine’, too).

TOP BILLIN’ ‘Straight From The Soul’ (Rapsonic DOPE T3)
James Brown samples crammed jittery scrubbing and jumping 111⅔bpm nervy insistent strong UK rap, flipped by a squealing sax-cut equally jumpy 117bpm new mix of ‘Naturally’.

ROBERT HOWARD + KYM MAZELLE ‘Wait’ (RCA PT 42596)
Promoed before Christmas by Syncopate despite being on a rival label, this duet between their artiste Kym and Dr Robert of the Blow Monkeys is a very powerfully pounding derivative though spirit uplifting 119¾bpm house wailer, mixed by ‘Magic Juan’ Atkins with – guess what? – another adaptation of the chords from ‘A Day In The Life’ amongst other familiar noises (Edit/Beats & Pieces flip). Likely to be big!

L.U.S.T. ‘2 Hot 2 Stop’ (US Renée Records RE 111)
Raze ‘Break 4 Love’ inspired sparsely trotting 120½bpm simple light disco lurcher with a repetitive title muttering guy crooning over an orgasmically panting girl in the similar Vocal and Nastii Mixes, while Muriel and Reynald Deschamps add some foreign language and sexy instructions to the beefier French Tickler Mix!

DIAZ BROTHERS ‘Blow Some Static’ (US Bassment Records BM-0064)
Weazling bass synth snarled fusion of the JB’s ‘Blow Your Head’ and James Brown ‘Static’ (amongst others), in slightly ‘Pump Up The Volume’-ish pounding 118bpm House Mix and Instrumental versions but far more rawly rare groove-ish in the 0-114bpm Break Beat Mix and its 114bpm Instrumental, worth checking.

MARSHALL JEFFERSON presents DANCING FLUTES ‘Do The Do’ (US Underground UN129)
With jazz funk-ish repetitive “got to do the do if you want to get it done” muttering, this Marshall Jefferson creation acidically twitters through a doodling flute line and seems disappointingly retrogressive (it may be an older recording only just released), pleasant but not a major opus, in four 121¾bpm mixes (beware the beat losing edited Dub The Do).


CAPITAL HOUSEPARTY: CONTINUED

CAPITAL RADIO’s new year’s eve five hour continuous Houseparty tape, mixed up by Les Adams and myself, seemed to go over so well that the first half has already been repeated due to popular demand, with the rest to follow. What’s more, there’s talk of next new year’s Houseparty being networked all over the country, so with luck it won’t just be Londoners who get to hear it! There was a slight panic this time when Tim Westwood actually started the tape 45 seconds early by mistake, and then thought he’d better make up the lost time by bridging between Michael Jackson and Bros with a burst of Inner City (in case anyone was wondering!). Anyway, as promised, here at last is the playlist for the final two hours, from midnight, with Beats Per Minute for mixing guidance and links denoted by / for running mix, ] for chop mix, and for straightforward segue:
