BEATS & PIECES
PRESTATYN 5 was generally considered a much better weekender than the previous one last November, when the bottom had just fallen out of “acieed” leaving a void that this time was filled with quite a lot of “swingbeat”, as a useful bridge between rap and soul — even so, if any one record stood out it was, to my mind, A Guy Called Gerald ‘Voodoo Ray’ … Soul II Soul made an impressive addition to Easter Sunday afternoon’s line-up, along with Adeva (who lustily rolled on her back with legs apart in the air!) and De La Soul … Ten City’s romper-suited Byron Stingily was possibly the most soulful singer ever at a Prestatyn, his partner Byron Burke doing an incredible shimmying dance … Chaka Khan is tipped as a live attraction at Prestatyn 6 (November 3/4/5, advance booking details on 01-364 1212), presuming that her remixed and reissued oldies will have brought her back to the fore by then! … North Wales, as anyone who stayed on after the weekender will confirm, looked lovely last week with blossom, flowers, budding leaves and warm sunshine as if early May — I added to my already great knowledge of the area by exploring the rather Lake District-like hills and villages (such as Rowen) of the western Conwy valley, and famously picturesque Anglesey side of the Menai Strait … Cutmaster Swift was celebrating his world win along with DJs Pogo, Jay and Biznizz by making an annual trip to Prestatyn — and then on my return I found them all buying imports off Jon Jules at Rayners Lane’s Record & Disco Centre! … 1988’s Technics World DJ Mixing champion, Cash Money has left the UK after amazingly beating up one of his tour promoter’s employees, for which he was arrested, fined, and given two years’ probation should he ever return … Denmark’s very first “end of weeker” (rather than weekender) is Thurs-Saturday April 20/21/22 at Copenhagen’s Coma Club: starring Will Downing, Todd Terry, Raze, Coldcut, T La Rock, Odyssey plus DJs Gail ‘Sky’ King, Johnny Walker, Norman Jay, Bob Jones, Gilles Peterson, Bob Masters, Jazzy M, the local Delgardo and Kenneth Baker — details from Bob Jones (0702-710293) or Jazzy M (01-384 2320) … Martin Collins’ new “pop soul” shows on Capital Radio start next Saturday (15) with a 3-5pm slot between Peter Young and Pete Tong, while he’s also presenting Sunday through Thursday 10pm- 1 am (expect other changes at the station, too) … Robbie Vincent, declaring a vehement lack of intention to see the film ‘Scandal’, let slip the stunning revelation that it was he, as a cub reporter for London’s Evening Standard, who broke the news to Christine Keeler that Stephen Ward was dead … Jeff Young returns to Swansea Martha’s Vineyard next Monday (10) … I take it that Theo Loyla’s letter last week refers to “the silent majority” of small town DJs who consistently made such big hits out of all the records he promoted during the last years of his career as a disco plugger? (Theo lives in a glasshouse near Herne Bay) … WOOO! YEAH!
PRESTATYN JOCKS in their “Satanic Verses” finale regalia! Back-row (I to r): Gilles Peterson, Johnny Walker, Martin Collins, Chris Forbes, Pete Tong, Paul Oakenfold, Sean French, Eddie Gordon, Chris Brown. Front row (kneeling): Ian Reading, Froggy, Chris Hill, Jeff Young, Nicky Holloway, Kev Hill
DE LA SOUL arrived at Prestatyn only just in the nick of time, hours late, having battled through the holiday traffic from Manchester airport by black cab!
THE NEVILLE BROTHERS ‘Sister Rosa (12″ Remix)’ (US A&M SP-12306)
The veteran New Orleans soulsters are rapping and chanting their thanks to pioneering civil rights campaigners Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King in this perhaps incongruous to purists but terrific hip hop-ishly jiggling ultra funky 0-97⅔-97⅚bpm remix by none other than the Public Enemy crew of Eric Sadler and Hank & Keith Shocklee, sampling Sly & The Family Stone’s ‘Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)’ and Dr King’s “free at last”, far removed from the loosely undulating original 0-89⅔-90⅓-90⅔-91bpm LP Version (piano jangled 97⅔-97⅚bpm Dub Version and 0-97⅔bpm 7″ Edit of 12″ Remix, too). Crucial!
TARAVHONTY ‘I Can’t Hide’ (US Big Beat BB-005)
David Morales mixed outstandingly neat and classy, mournful guy moaned, group chanted and piano jangled throbbing cool lazily striding pshta pshta driven 119⅕bpm garage roller, in five mixes (0-119⅕-0bpm The Aftermath), sure to be big. This label’s output is so consistent!
CIRCUIT featuring KOFFI ‘Shelter’ (Collision Records 12CIR 1, via The Cartel)
Wailing good Ten City-ish bassily tumbling and bumbling lushly orchestrated 121 bpm home-grown house hustler, initially promoed as a dodgy white label “scam”, with two more rawly broken down garage-ish B-side versions.
LITTLE STEVEN ‘Revolution (Naked City Mix UK)’ (RCA PT 49414)
Perhaps an unlikely source for a solidly funky old fashioned exaggeratedly muttered 101⅓bpm burbling jiggly rolling half-stepper, especially considering James Brown’s veteran saxist Maceo Parker blows all through the “rare groove”-style and consequently even hotter 99⅚bpm Pt. 2 — Maceo’s Thang (chunkily chorded rolling sleazily chanted 94bpm ‘Education’ too), specialist but sizzling!
VARIOUS ‘Urban Jazz’ (Urban UJAZZ1)
This limited edition sampler intended to promote its parent ‘Urban Jazz — The Original Illicit Grooves‘ album is ostensibly not for resale but selling fast as it contains the LP’s hottest cut, in similar style to Little Steven above, the meandering 99⅓-102-102⅓-101-100-100⅓-99⅔-100-100⅓-99⅔bpm brassy burbling jazz-funk instrumental THE JAMES BROWN BAND ‘In The Middle (Parts I & II)’, plus THE NEW JERSEY KINGS ‘Spinning Wheel‘, a funky 104-104⅓-103⅓-105½-105-102⅔-104⅓-104-103bpm brass treatment of Blood, Sweat & Tears’ joltingly rolling tune, CAL TJADER ‘Soul Sauce‘, a vibes led jerkily leaping 0-144-139-142½-140-142½-141 bpm Latin-jazz “salsa” hit from 1965, and JOHNNY PATE ‘You’re Starting Too Fast‘, a reedy organ, flute, brass and fuzztone guitar 0-126-124-125-126-0-125½-0-125⅓-0bpm stop-start racer.
CAPPELLA ‘Helyom Halib (acid acid acid)’ (Must Man MMPT 12004, via Pinnacle)
Italy recorded dated but infectious acidically twittering jerkily percussive, jumping here 122⅚-0bpm volume pumper quoting LNR’s “work it to the bone” (piano jangled houseier acid mix flip), which — as has been well chronicled — broke first in Manchester at the Hacienda and looks now like crossing over fast.
ACE & ACTION³ ‘Together (Long Version)’ (US Prism PS 2024)
Marley Marl produced really superb slinkily undulating attractive slow 85¼-0bpm chatting rap, doubtless based on some old groin-grinding jogger, with doodling piano and cooing girl (Radio Edit too), flipped by the Miracles ‘Mickey’s Monkey’ introed, wukka wuk driven, fiercely scratched more urgent jittery 115⅓-0bpm ‘Letter To The Better‘ (Bonus Beats too).
KEYMAN EDWARDS ‘Love’s Got 2 Be Strong’ (Fourth & Broadway 12BRW 130)
Finally due here after being hot on import ages ago, this Rickster produced superb soulfully crooned and rapped sinuously flowing deep house hit is in Ten City-ish 123⅘bpm Key To The Club and tuneful Instrumental Groove Mixes, plus the totally different washing machined stuttery 123⅔bpm House and 123⅗bpm Underground Mixes.
KEITH (THE KEY MAN) EDWARDS ‘Solutions’ (US Sound Park SPR-1025)
While waiting for Keyman’s above, current though at the time rapidly cooling, single to come out here, his 1987 oldie has been revived, on which Xaviera Gold actually does all the wailing of this snickety thumping jittery galloper in all but the Keith sung Street Mix, this and Ralphi Rosario’s Riviera Mix being 123⅘bpm, the Moondoctors’ House Mix (0-)123⅘bpm, and Julian Jumpin Perez & Bad Boy Bill’s Club Mix 123⅘-0bpm.
BLACK RADICAL MKII ‘Monsoon’ (2 The Bone Records TMS 004T)
Misleadingly introed (sounding too slow although meant to be at 33⅓rpm!), this Coldcut produced jiggling 109½-0bpm angry London street rap (not for airplay but with a cleaned up Radio Edit) features slithery scratching by DJ Cell and DJ Mo, plus a philosophical talking overlaid interesting (0-)109½-0bpm Interview dub, and 109½bpm Brake beats, coupled with the churningly chugging, guitar yowled 0-103⅔bpm ‘B Boys B Wise II‘ and ‘B Boys B Beat’ continuation.
UNKNOWN D.J. ‘Basstronic’ (US Techno Kut TK 1207)
Familiar “bass” and other repeated brief vocal samples punctuated but basically instrumental old fashioned electro-like jittery skittering 127⅕bpm strong simple sparse hip house leaper (127bpm Inst. and 126½bpm Bonus Beats too), most effective.
YAZZ ‘Where Has All The Love Gone? (Ghetto Mix)’ (Big Life BLR 8T)
FON Force produced plonking piano, swirling strings and pshta pshta hi-hats backed fluidly loping 117⅙bpm “get rid of the ghetto” message song in pop-house style, not her catchiest but more credible than some, flipped by Yvonne Turner’s shimmering, jangling and cantering urgent (0-)123-0bpm US Extended Remix of ‘Stand Up For Your Love Rights’.
VARIOUS ‘Techno-1‘ (US KMS Records KMS-018)
Distributed here by Kool Kat, this Detroit “techno” compilation has the Mayday produced friskily locomoting and flying wriggly 125⅔-126-0bpm unusual reedy organ instrumental R. TYME ‘Illusion’ and slithery flurry 129⅓bpm speedy instrumental RHYTHIM IS RHYTHIM ‘Beyond The Dance‘, 126bpm frantic twittery acidic instrumental SEPARATE MINDS ‘First Bass (Remix)‘, Kevin Saunderson produced plaintive girl warbled 0-123⅕-0bpm bubbly racing KOS (CHAOS) ‘Definition Of Love‘, Magic Juan mixed soulful guy nagged 125¼-0bpm scurrying techno DAMIER ‘Just A Matter Of Time‘ and Normski rapped 126½-0bpm hip house-ish MAGIC JUAN ‘Yeah, Yeah, Yeah‘, soulful guy moaned and muttered 126-126¼bpm stuttery galloping 24-7-365 ‘The Love You Saved‘, twittery wriggling 128bpm frantic instrumental TRANZISTOR ‘The Force‘.
SINNAMON ‘Thanks To You (House Mix)’ (Living Beat Records SMASH 3, via Pinnacle)
Jerkily bounding shrill 122½bpm Simon Harris remix of 1982’s Darryl Payne produced Barbara Fowler wailed oldie, included in its Shep Pettibone mixed much more calmly loping 118⅔-118¾-119bpm Original Version, plus Simon’s also calmer although still 122½bpm Deep House Mix (so called).
DÉJÀ ‘Made To Be Together’ (US Virgin 0-96564)
Teddy Riley & Gene Griffin produced — so inevitably quite “swingbeat” — good if dated jiggly soulful rolling and bashing 107½bpm jolter by the one time Aurra duo, in four very differently mixed versions (plus the more “purple” lurching 114½bpm ‘Sexy Dancer‘).
THE GYRLZ ‘Jam Jam (If You Can)’ (US Capitol V-15450)
Prodded along by familiar “funky” samples, this squeaky girls chanted good jaunty swingbeat jiggler is indeed virtually hip hop in its 105-0bpm Hip Hop Version, 105⅓-0bpm Club Hip Hop, 105⅓bpm 7″ Radio Edit and (0-)105bpm Instrumental mixes, coupled by older more starkly jolting jiggly 107bpm ‘Wishing You Were Here (Gyrlz Meet Boyz 12″ Mix)‘ and 7″ Edit.
VARIOUS ‘Lean On Me‘ (US Warner Bros 1-25843)
Put together by veteran producer Brooks Arthur, this varied soundtrack album from the US boffo box office movie about a righteous black school headmaster ranges from the 104⅚bpm jiggly chatting BIG DADDY KANE ‘Rap Summary (Lean On Me)’, 99⅚-100bpm lurching short ROXANNE SHANTÉ ‘Skeezer‘, (0-)114⅔bpm good forcefully bounding FORCE MD’s ‘After 12‘, 120bpm dated electro-type vigorous Latin hip hop TKA ‘You Are The One‘, 86⅓bpm jittery lacklustre STETSASONIC ‘I Ain’t Making It‘, 41¼/82½bpm lushly soaring SIEDAH GARRETT ‘All The Way To Love‘, 113bpm jerkily surging RIFF, TEEN DREAM & TAJA SEVELLE ‘Everybody Is Somebody‘, 71⅛bpm gospel-ish THELMA HOUSTON & THE WINANS ‘Lean On Me‘, 0-89-94-96-101-0bpm acoustic pure gospel SANDRA REAVES-PHILLIPS & THE CAST ‘Lean On Me‘ (yes, it’s Bill Withers’ song in each case), to the 0-123-126½-0bpm raucous rock GUNS N’ ROSES ‘Welcome To The Jungle‘.
CLUB HOUSE ‘I’m A Man/Yé Ké Yé Ké’ (Music Man MMPT 12003, via Pinnacle)
In much the same style as their 1984 hit combination of ‘Billie Jean/Do It Again’, this throbbingly clomping 119½bpm European remake medley of the Spencer Davis Group/Chicago Transit Authority classic oldie with Mory Kanté’s recent afro leaper may actually be at too stolid a pace considering even the originals were faster, and a bit more speed never hurts these days (uncredited only vaguely similar 118½bpm instrumental flip).
ULTRAMAGNETIC MC’S ‘Give The Drummer Some’ (ffrr FFRX 22)
Jerkily bumping bass drum tapped lead swapping monotonous angry rap in 110⅓bpm Vocal Remix, Bonus Beats and 108¾bpm LP Version mixes, coupled by the scratchier similar ‘Moe Luv’s Theme’ in 110½bpm Vocal Remix, Bonus Beats and 108½bpm LP Version mixes.
N.Y. HOUSE’N AUTHORITY ‘N.Y. House’n Authority’ (US nugroove NG 015)
Rheji Burrell created minimalist instrumental six-track in the now rapidly burgeoning ‘Bonesbreaks’ style, with the bubbly percolating and smacking 119⅕bpm ‘Dyckman House’, tightly twittering and clanking 120bpm ‘Ravenswood House‘, panting, groaning, muttering and bedspring creaking 119⅕-0bpm ‘Tilden House‘, rattling and wheazing 0-119⅕-0bpm ‘High Bridge House‘, tapping and lurching 120⅖sbpm ‘Fort Green House‘, bassily jolting resonant sparse exotic 0-120⅕bpm ‘Forty House‘.
NEW GROOVES ‘New Grooves’ (US nugroove NG 012)
Lenny “Dee” and Frankie “Bones” created variously tempoed drily electronic, backing track-like, monotonous instrumentals on a nine-track that, ‘Bonesbreaks’ style, is primarily for other music makers to use, with the effects introed/outroed twittery leaping lively (0-)124½-0bpm ‘Quiet Riot’, “techno”-style bounding 124½bpm ‘Big Acid‘, percussively twittering (0-)119bpm ‘Work It To The West‘, “noise” screeched hip hop 103⅙-103½bpm ‘Messin’ Jam’, wriggly lurching 120½bpm ‘Wild Wrath’, sparsely tapping 119½bpm ‘Jus’ An Bob’, jolting “gated” 114⅔bpm ‘Cash On Delivery’ (indeed very like my COD ‘In The Bottle’ remix!), drumming washing-machined 118bpm ‘Jerkin Acid’, and squeak prodded throbbing 109bpm ‘Africa’, all doubtless inspired by something else.
FRANKIE “BONES” presents ‘Bonesbreaks Volume 3’ (US UnderWorld Records AP 136)
Disappointingly dated lacklustre new edition of the “Dope Breaks For DJs” 12 inch series, with the Royal House-type jerky 124-0bpm ‘Can You Feel This (The People’s Mix Part Six)’, the same but dubwise 124-0bpm ‘Acid Break‘, “jack”-ing twittery 124⅕bpm ‘I Call It Acieed!‘, Moon-Fou “I said shut up” punctuated female groaned brief 0-119bpm ‘Frankie’s Seduction‘, female panted breakbeat based (0-)111-0-96⅔-0bpm ‘Jammin Breakdown‘, pshta pshta-ed “check this out” repeating episodic sparse 122bpm ‘Dance To The Music‘, washing machine style 121½bpm ‘Circus Acid‘, snappily twittering (0-)120¾-0bpm ‘Freestyle Acid Band‘, emptily lurching (0-)121-0bpm ‘Miami Bass‘, selling on previous reputation.
