BEATS & PIECES

HOME OFFICE plans for the further expansion of local radio could result in another 300 to 500 low power stations being on air as early as 1991, broadcasting on temporarily assigned frequencies to areas 12 miles in diameter … Dave Dorrell & CJ Mackintosh of M|A|R|R|S have done a Big Ben introed more resonantly booming slinky 0-110bpm remix of the Hall & Oates ‘I Can’t Go For That’ based terrific infectiously chugging and scrubbing De La Soul ‘Say No Go (Say No Dope Mix)‘, promoed with a pictorially etched blank flip ahead of June 26 release … Smack Music Productions’ guys talked (and barked!) 119¾bpm bubbly bumping K-Y-ZE ‘Stomp (Move, Jump, Jack Your Body)‘ has nicely wry drily intoned comments and dance instructions, flipped by the huskily moaned 121⅕bpm wriggly striding Fred Fowler ‘Times Are Changin’‘ on a popular promo that plugs Cooltempo’s imminent ‘This Is Garage‘ compilation LP … Teddy Riley arranged gruffly mature 17 years old rapper David ‘Redhead’ Guppy’s jerkily rolling swingbeat/hip hop Redhead Kingpin & The FBI ‘Do The Right Thing‘ (10 Records), in 0-108-108⅓bpm 12″ and (0-)108⅓-108⅙-0bpm US Street Mixes, likely to chart ahead of July 3 release … Peabo Bryson’s ‘All My Love’ LP is indeed now out here (Capitol EST 2097) … ffrr’s compilation album ‘ffrr – Silver On Black‘ could well be losing its Rockers Revenge (featuring Donnie Calvin) ‘Walking On Sunshine 89‘ remix as allegedly it was unauthorised by the existing group, who have a new re-recorded modern update awaiting rival release … Pressure Point ‘Dreaming’ has had its commercial release put back to next Monday due to a cracked lacquer … Frankie Knuckles’ bumpily swaying 0-104⅔bpm remix of ‘Ain’t Nobody’ from Chaka Khan’s album has been promoed coupled with a totally different drumkit tapped and moody piano jangled resonant instrumental 0-104½bpm Hallucinogenic Version and Soul II Soul-ish strings backed sparsely surging 0- 104bpm Bassapella … US imports I had neither time nor room to review In full include the prettily tinkled instrumental (in its best 121⅕-0bpm Krazee Mix); Da Posse featuring Martell ‘Searchin’ Hard‘ (Dance Mania); Fast Eddie scratched exciting (in its 0-123⅖-0bpm Jumpin Cut) if typical hip house Julian’ “Jumpin” Perez featuring Kool Rock Steady ‘Ain’t We Funky Now‘ (DJ International Records); Delegation ‘Oh Honey’ based slinkily conversational rap Three Times Dope ‘Funky Dividends‘ (Arista); Robert Brookins produced and Blaze remixed swingbeat Jackie Jackson ‘Cruzin‘ (Polydor); jerkily jiggling swingbeat Paul Laurence ‘I Ain’t Wit It‘ (Capitol); disappointingly patchy album of house, rap and Hi-NRG Corporation Of One ‘Black Like Me’ (Smokin’ LP) … Karyn White ‘Superwoman (Long Version)‘ on commercial 12 inch is flipped by the juddery jittery rolling 0-105⅔-105½-106bpm New York Groove Edit of her old ‘The Way You Love Me’ … Fast Globe have cashed in on ‘Helyom Halib’ by reissuing Cappella ‘Push The Beat/Bauhaus (The Better Beat Mix)‘ (12 FGL 1), their blatantly ‘Pump Up The Volume’ based episodic samples woven chugging 0-117⅓-0bpm debut UK hit from around 18 months ago … Precious ‘Definition Of A Track’ will be on MCA Records here in about a fortnight … Renegade Soundwave ‘The Phantom (It’s In There)‘ is being spun by some jocks at 33⅓rpm, turning it into a 90bpm heavy reggae-ish dub! … Tam Tam are updating their club mailing list for DJs outside London specifically — write to Sheyla Asian at Savage Records/Tam Tam Records, 31A Clerkenwell Green, London EC1R 0DU … Jive have just made their club plugger Steve Wren redundant, among other staff … Manchester’s Hacienda jocks Mike Pickering and Graeme Park are behind the de/Construction Records promoed Dynasty Of Two ‘Stop This Thing‘, a mournful girl keened 0-117-116⅘bpm electronically lurching “greenhouse” canterer (ie: it’s about the ecology!) — Mike meanwhile is touring the States as continuity DJ and compere of the New Order/De La Soul/PiL stadium package … Carlon hosts the salsoul/garage Metro party at Ealing’s Haven Stables this Tuesday (13), with a follow-up if you missed that one at the same venue on July 11 … Cutmaster Swift, DJ Pogo and MC Mello guest with Colin Watts, Mick Foster and Stumpy this Thursday (15) at Luton’s The Coliseum … Disco Mix Club are retaining the BlueBird name of their recently acquired record shops not only for continuity of goodwill, but also perhaps because unfortunately there already is a nine shop DMC Retail chain in the North West! … I’m outta here – BUT NOT FOR LONG!


OMAR, currently impressing all who hear his Al Jarreau-ishly multi-tracked ‘I Don’t Mind The Waiting‘, is a 20-year-old much schooled and fully trained multi-instrumentalist/vocalist from Canterbury and turns out to be the big brother of UK mixing championships runner-up, the Scratch Professor!


HOT VINYL

THE REAL ROXANNE `Roxanne’s On A Roll (Norman Cook Remix)’ (Urban URBA 42)
Eric B & Rakim’s “The R” assumes greater stuttery prominence in this name spelling totally different, no longer ‘Think (About It)’ driven, jiggly lurching 0-116⅓-0bpm clever remix by the DJ-ing ex-Housemartin (with his excellent even punchier 0-116⅓bpm Bonus Beats and an Edit too), not due fully until June 26. Above is a clip from the song’s ‘Viva Las Vegas’ styled video!

RAVEN MAIZE ‘Forever Together’ (US Quark QK017)
Initially hard to find but highly charted by those few who had it, and now selling so fast it’ll shoot into The Club Chart, this breezy New Jersey house bounder has bursts of repetitive simple vocal and catchily archetypal Latin keyboards in the A-side’s 123⅕bpm Forever United Mix and 0-122⅘bpm Give Me Some Dub Mix, flipped by the different bassily striding percussive straight house 123⅖bpm Freedom Mix and 0-122⅗-0bpm Dubbin’ Together Mix.

PUBLIC ENEMY ‘Fight The Power (Extended Version)’ (Motown ZT42878)
Out now and destined to be immediately massive (particularly as only seven inch copies were promoed ahead of release!), this ‘Feel The Noise’-style powerful 0-105⅓bpm funky jiggler has sharply cogent lyrics (some bleeped, unlike on the parent ‘Do The Right Thing’ soundtrack album) and builds a terrific JB-type compulsive groove (0-105bpm Radio Edit and conversationally rapped Flavor Flav Meets Spike Lee).

MANIC MC’S ‘Mental’ (RCA MENTAL 1)
Sounding like a demented Herb Alpert blowing his mind over Donna Summer’s ‘I Feel Love’ bassline, this appropriately manic trumpet tootled and samples spiked chatteringly chugging 0-118⅘-119-118⅘bpm incredibly exciting dense instrumental (co-created by veteran club jock Colin Hudd) has been teasingly previewed on radio for some weeks by a select few and is now primed to explode once it’s fully available (slightly starker alternative shorter B-side on white label). Not only mental, monumental!

NICOLE ‘Rock The House’ (US Oceana 0-96562)
Clivilles & Cole remixed simple juddery roto-toms driven looping leaper with a remarkable quaveringly wailed and stuttered vocal giving it immense power, in its 120-0bpm Club Mix, 120bpm more starkly smacking House Dub and percussive Acappella Mix, or totally different brassy lurching soulful 114bpm Radio Edit.

MIKKI BLEU ‘I Promise’ (US EMI EI -91171)
Club Nouveau’s soaringly soulful light voiced recent lead singer (and rockily yowling guitarist) solos on a self-penned/produced and largely played album that’s rightly winning instant praise, the consistent side one showing him off best with the infectiously rolling swingbeat 0-98bpm ‘I Promise’, sweetly worried steadily swaying 88½bpm ‘Something Real‘, lushly jogging 100⅔bpm ‘Every Little Thing’, mellow gently lurching 99⅔bpm ‘Lock-N-Key‘, Stevie Wonder-penned pleasant 93-93½bpm ‘Knock Me Off My Feet‘, flipped by the sinuously tugging 79½bpm ‘Can He Rock You Like This’, breathily weaving 87bpm ‘Nothin’ But The Best’, dreamily drifting 58½bpm ‘Until’, dull jerkily jolting 106bpm ‘Move Your Feet (Let’s Dance)’, dreary Prince-ish 100⅔bpm ‘Stand’.

CARLY SIMON ‘Why (Extended Version)’ (WEA U750IT)
Rave revival by London’s Balearic-type jocks has resulted in the reissue of this Bernard Edwards & Nile Rodgers created attractively “la de dah de dah”-ed choppily lurching lazy reggae-ish 93bpm jogging swayer from 1982 (when it reached number 10 nationally), with its in fact Chic credited tighter instrumental.

MILES AHEAD ‘I Feel Like Love 2 Nite (Club Mix)’ (Running Note MA 005)
Richard ‘RAH Band’ Hewson created (on his own label), Debbie Sharp warbled and wailed excellent juddering jiggly swingbeat-ish (0-)108bpm swaggering strider with muted trumpet, slippery vocoder and all sorts of other interesting details whipping up incredible excitement as it wriggles along (without any naff phonecalls from the moon!), flipped though by a more identifiably typical (0-)105⅚bpm Radio Edit version and ditto smoothly cantering house-ish (0-)118⅘bpm ‘The Rhythm Of Love (Club Mix)’, hopefully not too hard to find.


POP DANCE

GIPSY KINGS ‘Bamboléo (Arthur Baker Club Mix)’ (AI Records 12A1 313, via PRT), although for my money the definitive version remains the untampered original of the French gipsies’ terrific jauntily strummed and chanted “flamengo wave” classic from last year, it probably needs these latin house styled remixes to cross over finally into more than just the Balearic venues where it’s long been a monster, Arthur adding latin percussion and braying brass with a boosted burbling bassline and some occasional stuttery edit effects in his 119⅓-119⅕-119⅓-0bpm Club Mix, with a bright 119⅓-119½-0bpm Club Edit and more sparsely episodic really latin house 0-118⅕-118-118⅕-118-118⅕-0bpm Latin Mix;

RAUL featuring J. Bonell ‘Guitarra (Original Mix)’ (Rhyme ‘n’ Reason Records 12 RNR 4, via Pinnacle), encouragingly reviewed when brand new on Spanish import well over a year ago and subsequently an enduring Balearic hit, top Barcelona club jock Raul Orellana’s excellent lightly infectious now — post Gipsy Kings — modish Spanish guitar tinkled (by Jordi Bonell) tuneful loping instrumental is here at last due to be A-sided by this 0-121⅔-121½-0bpm edit of its original High Club mix, but has confusingly been preceded on 33⅓rpm promo by UK remixed gently percussive bass throbbed and piano plonked 120¾bpm Casa Del Sol, 121bpm Casa De La Arena and Casa Del Mar mixes, the latter two being due as commercial B-side, the whole thing now as then sounding great especially for classy MoR mobile discos;

BIG FUN ‘I Feel The Earth Move (Club Mix)’ (Jive JIVE T 204), potentially very useful whinneying Communards-style high energised churning and thumping 124⅙bpm revival of Carole King’s classic ‘It’s Too Late’ B-side (so useful that if it’s a big enough hit it’s sure to end up on Capital Radio next new year’s eve!), flipped by an acidically twittered jerky 121½bpm Blow The Amp Mix of the ex-Seventh Avenue guys’ earlier less distinguished ‘Living For Your Love’;

SONIA ‘You’ll Never Stop Me Loving You’ (Chrysalis CHS12 3385), another inevitably hitbound typically slick tuneful Stock Aitken Waterman created chunkily bounding 119½bpm ultra-commercial galloper by a sweet voiced vivacious 18 years old redhead who auditioned acappella for Pete Waterman and sang live on ‘The Hit Man And Her’;

JASON DONOVAN ‘Sealed With A Kiss’ (PWL Records PWLT 39), SAW-produced strong sweetly swaying 0-95⅔-0bpm remake of Brian Hyland’s bittersweet classic 1962 summer vacation song, true to the original’s spirit (reviewed in fact off seven inch, which may differ);

BANANARAMA ‘Cruel Summer (Swing Beat Mix)’ (London NAX 19), like the subtitle suggests, a jiggly smacking 110½-0bpm swingbeat remix by bright young sparks Blacksmith of the cooing girls’ oldie, coupled on a three-tracker by Freddy Bastone’s ultra jittery latin hip hop style 123⅕bpm ‘I Heard A Rumour (Corporation Of Bananarama Mix)‘, and Phil Harding & Ian Curnow’s “wooh – yeah” studded twittering juddery 126bpm ‘Venus (The Greatest Remix)‘, while already separately promoed (NANEX 19) are their respective 110½bpm Swing Beat, more house-ish 123-0bpm Corporation, and 126-0bpm Desire Dubs;

ZANGA ZANGA ‘Oh Ciolili’ (Urban URBX 37), possibly this year’s ‘Yé Ké Yé Ké’, another similar percussively driven frantic (0-)125½bpm African chanter — with a rippling jazzy vibes break rather than an acid mix this time! — by Liberia born but nowadays Europe based Larry Zanga Haney (instrumental flip);

THE BREAKFAST BAND featuring Root Jackson ‘Feeling The Feeling’ (Cane Records TASSA 1T, via JetStar), Old Oak Rum sponsored typically jaunty call and answer chanted 112⅘bpm brassy soca knees-up, penned by leading calypsonian Shadow for this year’s Trinidad carnival, good fun for all who still get hot, hot, hot when it’s party time;

KATE CEBERANO ‘Young Boys Are My Weakness’ (London LONX 226), Phil Harding & Ian Curnow produced Australian star’s reworded (for obvious gender changing reasons!) funkily jiggling 102bpm Commodores revival with some strong squalling sax, not really in the same class but in much the same rhythm groove as Soul II Soul for mixers (flipped though by a far less good ‘Searching’-ly tempoed 126bpm treatment of Stevie Wonder’s ‘Higher Ground‘);

LONDON BOYS ‘London Nights’ (WEA YZ393T), another very European flavoured frisky though more stolidly thumping 0- 119⅖bpm breezy singalong, briefly introed and then washed throughout by the resonant atmosphere of wordless monkish chanting (0-119½bpm The London Days’ instrumental flip);

EARTHA KITT & BRONSKI BEAT ‘Cha Cha Heels’ (Arista 612331), with lines alluding to ‘These Boots Are Made For Walkin’’, Eartha’s typically feline growled and purred galloping 0- 127¾-0bpm Hi-NRG collaboration with the current Bronskis has long been in the pipeline, and won’t disappoint those who are already likely to be predisposed towards the total predictability of just such an alliance, while probably more enduring in appeal is the double bass and fingersnaps backed nice if blatantly ‘Fever’ rewriting 110¼-110¾-0bpm ‘My Discarded Men‘ flip;

PHYLLIS NELSON ‘Move Closer‘ (Carrere CART 337, via EMI), chart-topping classic old 81bpm sultry smoocher, reissued belatedly and — as it turns out —needlessly to counter Tom Jones’s sadly unsuccessful revival (essential MoR though if you don’t already have it);

CAPPELLA ‘Push The Beat/Bauhaus (The Better Beat Mix)’, (Fast Globe 12 FGL 1, via PRT), ‘Helyom Halib’ prompted inevitable reissue of their old ‘Pump Up the Volume’ based episodic samples woven 0-117⅓-0bpm chugger from early last year;

CLIVE GRIFFIN ‘Head Above Water (Full Length Version)’ (Mercury STEP 412), extremely classy huskily tremulous attractive 107-0bpm swaying blue eyed soul jogger in Michael McDonald/Hall & Oates/George Benson-ish style, a bit amorphous as a song maybe but strong on atmosphere (slightly tighter 106⅔-0bpm Eric Calvi remixed flip);

PRINCE ‘Batdance (LP Version)’ (Warner Bros W29247) a self-penned wild and wacky theme from the new ‘Batman’ movie, only the chant harking back to Neal Hefti’s TV theme (there aren’t many other ways of rhythmically enunciating the two syllables of “Batman”!), this trickily strange but very exciting dialogue sampling jerkily interrupted 0-135⅓-0-135⅓-0-135⅓-0-135⅓-0-110-0-135⅓-0bpm frantic churner drops to a more consistently jolting funky second half before jerking back into a fast finale, flipped by the uninterrupted typically cranking rocky 135⅓-0bpm ‘200 Balloons (Non-LP Track)‘ vocal adaptation of the underlying basic theme;

SWEET SENSATION with Romeo J.D. ‘Sincerely Yours (Extended Club Version Remix)’ (Atco A92467), old fashioned Shannon-style electro, house and latin beats combining lightweight jaunty (0-)113¼bpm archetypal “latin hip hop” jitterer by a plaintive trio of disco bimbettes (plus some breathy guest male rap), who already have an Hispanic following in US clubs but may mean less here;

SABRINA ‘My Chico’ (Videogram DCUP 17, via Pinnacle), billed as “two big hits” (nudge nudge, wink wink!), this slightly discordant jangly jittery 117bpm Eurobeat canterer is double A-sided with the more straightforward lisping chanted tinkly throbbing 122bpm ‘Like A Yo Yo‘, neither up to her past form;

MATT BIANCO ‘Say It’s Not Too Late’ (WEA YZ388T), Georgie Fame-ishly crooned typical pleasantly lolloping 91bpm Brazilian style samba shuffler with a lazy double tempo swing), flipped by the subduedly similar more sombre 0-84-0bpm ‘More Than I Can Bear (Remix)’ and older lushly swaying jazzier 95⅔bpm ‘Summer Song’;

LIVING IN A BOX ‘Gatecrashing (Diesel Mix)’ (Chrysalis LIBX 6), growled and chanted moronically powerful stomping 111-0bpm dense brassy thudder finally out in this mix after originally being withdrawn in the wake of the Hillsborough soccer match tragedy (it still seems insensitive and isn’t really that special anyway, so why are they persevering with it?);

THE NOLANS ‘I’m In The Mood For Dancin’ 89′ (Al Records 12A1 312, via PRT), Barry Upton produced inoffensive rumblingly chunky trotting (0-)114½bpm brand new though not particularly modern remake (rather than a remix) of the Irish sisters’ nine and a half years old pop hit, fine for those who anticipate they might like such a thing;

FRANKIE JOHNSON ‘Back In The Groove’ (Polydor FJX 2), amazingly blatant Rick Astley soundalike 118⅘bpm cheerful canterer by the onetime disco dancing champion;

JAMES LEE WILD ‘Who’s Got My Number (The Groove Corporation Mix)’ (Polydor JLWR2), quaveringly whinneyed Michael Jackson-inspired gentle bumpily sinuous 97bpm swingbeat-ish blue eyed swayer, with any potential jittery jiggles smoothly rounded off into mushy wriggles;

KON KAN ‘Harry Houdini’ (Atlantic A8872T), ethereally chanted soft synth plinked shuffling and burbling pop-house style throbber using some vaguely familiar samples but nothing like as incisive as their recent smash, in 118bpm UK House 12″, jerkier 116¾-0bpm Miami Mix, empty 118⅗bpm House Vocal and House Vox versions (on promo, anyway);

GLADYS KNIGHT ‘Licence To Kill (Extended Version)’ (MCA Records MCAT 1339), Narada Michael Walden produced/co-penned but typically and instantly Bond-style 0-78/39-0bpm lurching slow soulfully sung overwrought dramatic theme song from the new James Bond movie;

KRAZY HOUSE ‘Krazy House’ (Supreme Records SUPET 145), Barry Upton produced, Peter Slaghuis mixed, repetitively chanted cornily dated volume pumping 120¼-0bpm pop-house canterer;

XY&Z ‘Satisfy My Love’ (Debut DEBTX 3072), Yazz-ish girl wailed title repeating bright but boring 123¾bpm Hi-NRG house bounder;

CONNEXION featuring SHEILA ‘Run’ (Debut/Scratch DEBTX 3071, via PRT), piano jangled and nasal girl wailed jittery tumbling 120¾-0bpm Hi-NRG house canterer, not another ‘Wait’;

PETULA CLARK ‘I Couldn’t Live Without Your Love’ (Peter Slaghuis Remix)’ (Legacy LGYT 100, via PRT), a painfully ungainly and unnecessary shotgun marriage between clodhoppingly lurching 122-123¼-123½bpm beats and her 1966 hit, forced together to follow-up the altogether happier ‘Downtown’ remix.
