BEATS & PIECES
MOTOWN RECORDS have teamed up with Harlem’s legendary black talent showcase the Apollo to launch a new Apollo Theatre Records label . . . Gilles Peterson, the Anglo/Swiss presenter of the late lamented BBC Radio London jazz show, as previously mentioned now has a day job at Phonogram, in fact setting up a new Talkin’ Loud label for jazzily inclined projects in parallel with a separately headed soul/dance label yet to be announced . . . Dancin’ Danny D has signed his Slam Jam Productions to WEA/Warner Bros Records and is now actively seeking new acts for his Slam Jam label at Unit 32, Ransomes Dock, 35/37 Parkgate Road, London SW11 4NP (01-228 4000) . . . Toronto based Bigshot Records have opened a London office headed by Don Gallacher at Media Business Associates, 9 Carnaby Street (01-437 2747), to field all the enquiries for their hot product . . . Les Adams and LA Mix are now managed by Jimmy ‘Shamus’ O’Reilly at nearby Wardour Street’s Pure Music (01-287 2072) . . . BBC2 last Wednesday morning surprisingly showed an excellent ‘Don’t Believe The Hype’ educational documentary about job prospects in the world of hip hop (I think that was its intention, or maybe it was originally on Def II?), with interesting contributions from Jazzie B, Monie Love, Cutmaster Swift, Doctor K and many more . . . Simon Harris’ latest purpose built album of basic ‘Beats, Breaks & Scratches Vol 4‘ (Music Of Life MOMIX 4) has had all its BPMs calculated by yours truly, and if there is any discrepancy between running speed of the original acetate and the finished pressing it is so infinitesimal that for once you can be assured of accuracy! . . . Birmingham’s old Powerhouse reopens this Thursday (28), with a VIP party the night before, as the totally refurbished £2,500,000 triple venue Ritzy, with resident DJ Kenny Jaymes . . . Foster McElroy’s album, reviewed last week, is called ‘FM²’ — which, word processor incompatibility permitting, should have a small 2 after the FM as in ‘FM squared’ (the pound sterling symbol doesn’t seem to print either incidentally, amongst other things!) . . . Paul McCartney ‘Ou Est Le Soleil?’ appears to be out here too now (Parlophone 12 SOL 1), the same BPM as in last week’s import review . . . Wrecks ‘N’ Effect’s import album is also out here (Motown ZL72679) . . . October 2 is building up as a heavyweight release date for dance product, most of the currently promoed pre-release club hits being due commercially then (surely not following Eddie Gordon’s previously revealed strategy, the start of the month being when punters have money to burn?!) . . . Electribe 101 ‘Tell Me When The Fever Ended’ turns out to be on Mercury (hard to tell from an info lacking white — or rather, pink — label), and out on October 9 just to be different, along with other releases from Phonogram . . . I do wish Rhythm King could make up their minds once and for all about the different mixes of S’Xpress’ ‘Mantra For A State Of Mind’: now the previously promoed and mentioned 120.2bpm Club Vocal/Groove Mantra/Mantra System versions have indeed been released commercially too (LEFT R35T), but as ‘The Club Mixes’ rather than the Levitation Mix (which always was a separate different version, white labelled to some people even before the others), while yet another brand new Baby Ford remix should be out next week — a pity the actual tune isn’t really good enough to warrant all this! . . . DJ Kid Smurf usefully points out that the bassline from Faze-0 ‘Hi’ backs the Fresh 4’s ‘Wishing On A Star’ . . . Sydney Youngblood’s ‘If Only I Could’ seems to use much the same rhythm as Raze ‘Break 4 Love’ (does Mel ‘Litigation’ Medalie realise this yet?), while it is of course the Richie Havens version of the ‘Going Back To My Roots’ rhythm that Judge Jules uses for his Georgette Della Rosa ‘D’ Ya Wanna’ remixes . . . Jon Williams and Judge Jules mix up Italo house for Rusty Egan’s Saturday nights at Mayfair’s Wall Street . . . Jon Jules, Jerry Green plus other DJs and road crew were arrested before they had even started what the tabloid press would doubtless call an ‘acid house’ gig near Southampton two weekends ago (it was actually being promoted by a solicitor!), were locked up but not charged, and when brought before the beak were merely bound over to keep the peace for a year — for doing what? . . . Joyce Sims guests at the Unique 3’s fast becoming legendary the Sound Yard this Sunday (October 1) in Bradford’s Club Rio . . . Da Posse featuring Martell ‘Searchin’ Hard‘ (US Dance Mania), first hot in June, is now suddenly hotter than ever . . . David Peaston proves to be the younger brother of ‘Rescue Me’ immortalising mid-Sixties soul veteran Fontella Bass . . . Kevin Saunderson’s modern remix of the classic Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King ‘Shame’ is now scheduled for RCA release here . . . Jay ‘Mixbuster’ Davis has created a megamix of every track for inclusion in a Salsoul compilation box set coming soon on Indigo Music’s label Garage Trax . . . Frankie Knuckles Presents ‘Your Love’ is included in the currently released UK album compilation ‘Chicago Trax LP Vol 1′ (Trax Records TRAXLP 701, via Radical Records) . . . Jeff Lorber has been in London producing an album by, believe it or not, Brother Beyond (but on his own next set returns more to jazz) . . . I may have been mischievously misinformed about some of DMC’s current affairs, and, if so, naturally apologise should I have overstated the situation (after all they’ve achieved for the DJ world, and the fun we’ve had together, I certainly don’t wish ’em ill) . . . Marlborough for a cream tea was unfortunately the extent of my foray into last week’s brilliant weather — BUT NOT FOR LONG!
SUENO LATINO featuring Carolina Damas ‘Sueno Latino (The Latin Dream Mix)’ (BCM Records BCM 323 X, via Pinnacle)
Differently subtitled but the same as the import’s Paradise Version, this haunting here (0-)117.4-0bpm massive Italian groove patters, pants, sighs and sexily mutters through bursts of some sort of bird noise that becomes its most nagging hook out on the dancefloor (beat losingly introed then more acidic instrumental 117.2bpm Cutmaster-G Mix, and A Cappella).
UNIQUE 3 ‘The Theme (Unique Mix)’ (10 Records TENX285)
Minus the Mad Musician now and co-produced instead by FON Force’s Rob Gordon, this Sheffield re-recording of last year’s hard to find enduringly huge northern “sleeper” by the DJ team from Sundays at The Sound Yard in Bradford’s Club Rio is a crowd effects and rap started then tinny synth piped jittery twittery throbbing unhurried 0-120.6-0bpm deep house instrumental (with a further brief burst of rap), flipped though by the arguably still better more haunting bass synth underpinned fully instrumental (0-)122.8-122.6-122.4-122-122.4-122.6bpm Original Chill Mix, the version whose few pressings on Chill Records first caused all the fuss (new quietly ticking 120-0bpm ‘7 A.M.‘ too), not due fully until October 9.
ADEVA ‘I Thank You (The Philadelphia Mix)’ (Cooltempo COOLX 192)
The outstanding track from her album remixed by Paul Simpson, a gradually building then rompingly whomping emphatically wailed brisk (0-)121.4bpm stomping and swinging strider, not due fully until October 9 but flipped on promo at any rate by Paul’s even better and breezier gloriously loose limbed soulfully sung and tinklingly vibed 119.6bpm Philly Dub Mix, for my money the side to check.
DE LA SOUL ‘Eye Know (The Know It All Mix)’ (Big Life DLS PROMO 3)
Combining the whistling from Otis Redding’s ‘(Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay’ with the break beat of Steely Dan’s ‘Peg’ and other familiar funky shuffles, Dave Dorrell & CJ Mackintosh’s 0-109bpm remix is coupled exclusively on pre-release “promo” by their alternative chugging People’s Choice ‘Do It Any Way You Wanna’ driven 109bpm Lazy Daisy Mix!
JANET JACKSON ‘Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814’ (A&M AMA 3920)
In much the way that brother Michael’s ‘Bad’ compared to ‘Thriller’, this Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis produced concept album sounds less solid than ‘Control’ but won’t put off pop fans, with the terrific infectious hip house break beat backed new jack swing 111.8bpm ‘Alright’, jauntily lurching (0-)103.2-0bpm ‘Love Will Never Do (Without You)‘, starkly jittering (0-)107bpm ‘The Knowledge‘ (abruptly segueing into the intro of the current jolting (0-)115.2-0bpm ‘Miss You Much‘), bouncy jiggling 112.4bpm ‘State Of The World’, jittery chanting 109-0bpm ‘Rhythm Nation’, squeakily chugging 115.2bpm ‘Escapade’, rock guitar droned 0-115bpm ‘Black Cat’, sweetly drifting suite-like 83-0bpm ‘Lonely’, (0-)78-0bpm ‘Come Back To Me’, 0-82/41bpm ‘Someday Is Tonight’, and god save the children-type slow 0-76.3-0bpm ‘Livin’ In A World (They Didn’t Make)’.
RAUL ORELLANA ‘The Real Wild House (Wild Mix)’ (BCM Records BCM 322 X)
Already one of our hottest Euro smashes — Spanish, rather than Italian — this incredibly powerful piano jangled and J. Bonell flamenco guitar twanged 124-0bpm gloriously exuberant instrumental house bounder samples Iggy Pop’s “I’m a real wild one” and even the Lyn Collins “yeah wooh” break beat amidst all the frisky mayhem (123.8-0bpm Radio Mix, and the atmospheric gentle guitar picked 92.1-100.2bpm ‘Entre Dos Aguas (The Night Time Mix)‘ too. Real wild!
BIG DADDY KANE ‘It’s A Big Daddy Thing’ (Cold Chillin’ WX 305)
Currently king of the spoken word, Kane’s new album is selling fast as cannily it’s out here ahead of imports, with the new jack swing (Teddy Riley produced!) 113.4bpm ‘I Get The Job Done’, McFadden & Whitehead based 113.2bpm ‘Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now’, slinky 0-95.3bpm ‘Young, Gifted And Black’ (brand new tune but soulful old brass!), lovely romantic 77.3bpm ‘To Be Your Man’, fruitily rolling 97bpm ‘On The Move’, weaving 0-102bpm ‘Mortal Combat’, conversational bubbling 0-95bpm ‘Calling Mr Welfare’, cool 114.6bpm ‘Another Victory’, rolling dirty 99.7-0bpm ‘Pimpin’ Ain’t Easy’, Mister Cee scratched “hardest workin’ man in showbusiness” satirising then Jazzy Jeff-ish 0-117.6bpm ‘The House That Cee Built’, leaping (0-)122.4pm ‘It’s A Big Daddy Thing’, lethargic 81.6bpm ‘Children R The Future’, meandering 0-93.6bpm ‘Big Daddy’s Theme’, currently 12-inched Mary Jane Girls based 92.8bpm ‘Smooth Operator’ and churning 118bpm ‘Warm It Up, Kane’.
OH WELL ‘Oh Well’ (US 8ighty.8ight Records/Capitol V-15472)
Fleetwood Mac’s exactly 20-year-old drily twanging guitar notes driven choppily chanted throbbing jiggler makes an unexpected though, in the current pop orientated club climate, effective choice of material for a German remake in chugging Eurodisco style, on this pressing in Music Factory’s comments overdubbed (0-)110.8 UK Mix, a starker 0-110.6bpm 88 Dance Mix, 110.3bpm Extended Mix and Radio Version, or now on the alternative ‘Oh Well (Remix)’ (German 8ighty.8ight Records IC 060-2 03323 6) in a bassily grooving piano plonked twittery (0-)110-0bpm presumably newer mix, 110bpm percussion and piano dub, plus the similarly styled though original 110bpm ‘Rio De Janeiro’. Worth UK release, I’d have thought.
CHRIS REA ‘Josephine (Extended French Re-Recording)’ (WEA YZ427T)
Apparently made fashionable by Danny Rampling at Shoom, this superb steadily rolling slightly Chic-ish 110bpm swaying summer groove hypnotically builds through chinking guitars and clonking beats before fleshing out with huskily romantic singing and soaring “strings”, flipped by the similarly flavoured though far brisker jazzily climaxed classic 128-127.6-0bpm ‘On The Beach’.
NO SMOKE ‘Koro-Koro’ (Warriors Dance WAFT 11, via Spartan)
Paris based African drummer Freddie McPablo whips up a mesmeric 120bpm throbbing bassy groove in four different mixes, a “happy dance” indeed (to translate the title), with rather more emphasis on the African chanting in the flip’s also slightly house-ier (and less effective?) dubs, plus some spooky strange muttering by Jah Tekla in the ‘Black Is Black‘ vocal variation.
KYM MAZELLE ‘Love Strain (Slam City Club Version)’ (Syncopate 12SY 30)
Friskily wailed impassioned but over repetitively rambling rather exaggerated jokingly juddering bouncy 106bpm swingbeat jiggler produced by Alvin Moody & Vincent Bell almost like a parody of their own Alyson Williams style (self descriptive good Sax Strain instrumental, and Radio Version too).
THE SUGARHILL GANG ‘Rappers Delight (Hip Hop Mix)’ (Dutch 4 Jocks Only JOCK 3004)
About for a while but now suddenly hitting, Ben Liebrand’s brilliant remix surrounds the original rap vocal with a totally new (or, actually, familiar old!) samples woven 113.8bpm backing track that makes it really useful and, without sounding at all European, somehow just right for the current frivolous climate (radio edit too, plus 1979’s pioneering (108.5-)111-111.2-108.5-111.4-111.2bpm Original Version).
GLEN GOLDSMITH ‘One Life (Alt Mix)’ (RCA PT 43180)
Having escaped from his previous production ties, Glen’s return (possibly not due commercially for a while) is a Dave James produced, Timmy Regisford remixed heftily lurching and thudding 101.3bpm jauntily syncopated stuttery swingbeat jiggler perhaps styled more for the States than here (0-101.2bpm Dub and 101.2bpm 7-inch Mix flip).
DEE LEWIS ‘Double Standard (Don’t Dis Me)’ (Mercury DEEX 5)
Linda and Shirley’s far funkier sister is already hitting way ahead of October 16 full release wit this Preston Glass produced, Alvin Moody remixed chunkily rolling 99.2-0bpm swingbeat lurch, flipped by its 99bpm Acappella plus a much more mildly swaying 96.5bpm Paul Staveley O’Duffy mix (minus the Don’t Dis Me ingredient).
kc FLIGHTT ‘Summer Madness’ (US RCA/Popular 9043-1-RD)
Hottest track from the hip house pioneer’s album, not necessarily improved by Mark Kamins & Tom Vercillo’s remixes although they’re OK, this nasally chatted and panting Jazz (a girl) muttered briskly trotting sometimes acidically twittering burbler is in 124.4-0bpm Mental Club, 124.4bpm Love Is In The Air and Radio, and Diana Ross-ish Jazz spoken sparser (0-)124.4-0bpm Sex For Days Mixes – which clock in at 124bpm on UK pressings (PT 49336), promoed as a twin-pack with the Radio Mix on a single sided separate disc.
“J.D.” (REMIX) ‘I Ain’t Gonna Wait (Remix)’ (US Requestline Records RR-551)
Simple chording synth and vocal samples built anguished nervy jittering 121-0bpm jerky house jolter, with an occasionally twittery Acid Mix and pshta pshta-ed 120.6-0bpm Original Mix, likely to be overshadowed by a useful 121bpm ‘Good Vibrations (The It’s Not Over Mix)‘, this newly remixed influential sleeper from many months back of course being driven by the “it’s such a good vibration” sample from Loleatta Holloway’s ‘Love Sensation’ that has now become so prevalent.
FREESTYLE ORCHESTRA feat. Little Louie Vega ‘Don’t Tell Me (Garage Club Mix)’ (SBK.One 12SBK 7002, via EMI)
Uncompromisingly specialist sparse bass boomed episodic loping 0-121.8bpm garage instrumental (with ethereally wailed, essentially wordless, vocal accents), flipped by a more vibrantly textured bounding 121.8bpm Garage Dub Mix that’s perhaps more exciting. This New York based Little Louie, as surely everyone by now realises, has no connection with Chicago’s Little Louis.
KOOL MOE DEE ‘I Go To Work (Extended Remix)’ (Jive JIVE T 223)
Due commercially next week, this funky brass subbed jerkily frenetic 125.6bpm hip house tempoed (but harder) fast talking rap jitterer is flipped by the James Brown samples backed superb subtle jiggly new jack swing 0-104.5bpm ‘How Ya Like Me Now (Extended Version)’ and condom boosting old amusingly dirty 89.3bpm ‘Go See The Doctor (Uncensored Version)’.
L.A. MIX (featuring Kevin Henry) ‘Love Together (Remix)’ (Breakout USAF 662)
Totally revamped with clattering billiard balls, bouncing bass and a synthesized veneer, Les Adams’s 120bpm garage remix is flipped by Knuckles & Morales’ 120bpm Banji Lovers Dub still plus Chad Jackson’s frantically scrubbing 128.6bpm DMC Mix (bit ironic, that!) of the Jazzi P rapped old ‘Get Loose’.
JOHNSON DEAN featuring Lynda Law ‘Somebody Somewhere (Smokin’ Jammy Mix)’ (W.A.U/Mr Modo Recordings MWS 007R)
Acappella introed densely bumping and shuffling Soul II Soul-ish bass and drums driven 0-108.2-0bpm Lynda wailed remixed wriggler (more drily throbbing 108.2bpm House Mix and cramped (0-)107.8-0bpm Johnson Dean Remix).
PAUL RUTHERFORD ‘Oh World (Universal Mix)’ (Fourth & Broadway 12BRX 136)
Classy more subtly soulful smoothly bounding 119.2-0bpm David Morales remix of the sophisticated Philly inspired message song (housier instrumental 119.2bpm Delirium Dub and brightly jolting 0-125.4bpm ‘Seduction (Edit)‘ too).
CAPPELLA ‘House Energy Revenge’ (Music Man MMPT 12-009, via Pinnacle)
Datedly volume pumping lively but rather routine and retrogressive 122.7bpm driving Italo house pounder repetitively prodded by sampled vocal lines, with lots of “got your pleasure” — presumably from ‘Pleasure Control’ and even — yawn — some Ofra Haza type Arabic chanting (121.8bpm instrumental flip).
THE 49ers ‘Shadows’ (Music Man MMPT 12-010, via Pinnacle)
Sassily thrumming efficient enough if not particularly exceptional 120bpm Italo house chugger with ever shifting vocal lines and a synthed echo of the Serious Intention “oh-oh-oh -oh” descant (instrumental Dub too).
FREUD SOFA ‘Sendy’ (Italian Nel/Made In Europe CRN 53523)
This piano plonked and synyh thrummed 121-120.8-0bpm Italo house hustler is pronounced more like “Sandy” by an occasionally title repeating girl, flipped with tighter instrumental 120.8bpm Remix and particularly good Piano Versions.
CYBERIA ‘Let Me Now’ (Avenue X Records AvX 101, via Greyhound)
New York recorded brightly tinkling though ultimately over repetitive girls nagged techno-ish rambler, in 118.4bpm 12″ Remix, 118.6bpm 12″ Extended Remix and Bonus Beats, and 118.2bpm 7″ Radio Edit versions.
ALISHA WARREN ‘Touch Me (Dub Version)’ (RCA ALISHA 2)
Punchy bass bashed and piano chorded surging (0-)122-0bpm dub mix, with wailing vocal effects but no lead lyric, only seen so far on this double-sided promo.
SHABAZZ ‘Respect’ (US RCA 9023-1-RD)
Not for once the much covered Otis Redding classic, despite some Adeva-like spelling out of the title, this self-produced guys sung and rapped juddery stark jolter has scoldingly pitched female chatter disputing its message that women shouldn’t flaunt their bodies if they really want respect, in 0-104.8bpm Mass Media and Straight To The Point Mixes, Eric ‘Vietnam’ Sadler co-mixed 0-104.8-0bpm High Top Fade and 104.8bpm Hip Hop Mixes.
DEBBIE MALONE ‘Rescue Me’ (Krunch Records KR 001, via Pacific)
Originally promoed with the same catalogue number some months ago in totally different more Latin influenced clomping, jangling and wailing mixes, the San Antonio, Texas, girl’s now house-ier sparsely rambling commercial version has been completely stripped down and revamped by Richie Rich with weirdly swirling hollow bass tones and shuffling snare drums to make distinctively unusual 122-121.6-121.8-121.6bpm Club, 121.6bpm 12”, (0-)121.2-120.8-121.6bpm Dance, and (0-)121.6-121.8-121.6(-0)bpm Dub Mixes.
IMPORTS stacking up for full review include the fully vocal frantically bubbling Italo house RUSTY ‘Everything’s Gonna Change‘ (Italian DFC); possibly bootlegged frenetically flying LIZ TORRES ‘No More Mind Games‘ (Jack Trax); incredibly infectious wriggly leaping hip house-ish semi-instrumental “2 DOPE” ‘A Touch Of Salsa‘ (Dope Wax); revived and remixed girl wailed sinuously shuffling GALLIFRE featuring Mondee Oliver ‘Don’t Walk Out On Love (Frankie Knuckles Remix)‘ (Gherkin Records); funkily burbling phonetically muttered Euro rap (but US issued) GINO LATINO ‘Welcome‘ (Harbor Light Records); phonetic soundingly muttered Euro-style basic stomping electro house JUNGLE CREW featuring “Jungle Jorge” ‘Elektric Dance‘ (Elektro Sounds); WestBam mixed jaunty if clichéd hip house DESKEE ‘Let There Be House‘ (German Black Out); bassily bounding simple samples repeating BLUEJEAN ‘Don’t Laugh‘ (Breaking Bones); only weeks older, repeated title mumbling spikily jerking BLUEJEAN ‘This Is The Sound Of (House Music)‘ (Fourth Floor Records); DJ Mark mixed P’funky rap X-CLAN ‘Heed The Word Of The Brother‘ (4th + B’way); funkily scrubbing samples backed hip house-ish rap JAMOSE ‘Dance To The Megablast‘ (WA Pitch); dated Todd Terry-ishly backed angrily spitting hip house ROCKWELL NOEL AND THE POET ‘Massacre‘ (SAM); Jeff Wayne ‘War Of The Worlds’ remaking dramatic BEN LIEBRAND REMIX ‘The Eve Of The War (Deepspace Mix)‘ (Dutch CBS); Angela Winbush created sultrily weaving slow STEPHANIE MILLS ‘Something In The Way (You Make Me Feel)‘ (MCA Records); youthfully lisped chunkily tumbling latin hip hop YVONNE ‘There’s A Party Going On‘ (Cutting Records).
GLORIA ESTEFAN ‘Oye Mi Canto (Hear My Voice) English Version (12” Pablo Mix) (Epic 655287 6), daringly different authentically latin 119.8-118.2-118.4 frisky salsa kicker building ever more infectiously to a totally ethnic Puerto Rican braying brass and jangling piano finale, usefully flipped by the similar though more homogenised 122.2bpm ‘Conga’ from 1985;
SONIA ‘Can’t Forget You’ (Chrysalis CHS 3419), the chubby redhead with roll-away lips returns sweetly wailing another Stock Aitken Waterman created less urgently loping 115.3bpm side to side swinger;
TINA TURNER ‘The Best’ (Capitol 12CL 543), steadily thumping sombre incredibly tense wailing and soaring 103.8-103.7-103.5-0bpm remorseless surging noisy chugger;
CURIOSITY KILLED THE CAT ‘Name And Number (Hanging On Person To Person)’ (Mercury CATX 6), terrific slinkily bumping 0-93bpm funky blue eyed soul half-stepper weaving a subtle swingbeat syncopation out of isolated beats and Donny Hathaway-type organ notes, nothing like the more raucous video version;
ROLLING STONES ‘Mixed Emotions (Chris Kimsey’s 12”)’ (CBS 655193 8), guitars clanged and drums thrashed 138-136.7-138bpm kicking and churning strutter obscured by its sloppy resonance but with the sort of beat that Bruce Springsteen gets on his disco mixes too;
MICHAELA STRACHAN ‘H.A.P.P.Y. Radio’ (London LONX 238), fantastically frantic sounding though surprisingly only 133bpm zingily flying Edwin Starr revival by the Wide Awake Club’s ‘Hit Man And Her’ co-presenter, toothy Michaela Strachan. More, and more up to date, next week!
