BEATS & PIECES
BEN LIEBRAND has created an excellent 0-110¼-110⅓-114⅓-114¾-118-119¼bpm ‘The Megamix‘ of Luther Vandross oldies, sliding neatly through ‘Never Too Much/Sugar And Spice/I Really Didn’t Mean It/The Glow Of Love/Super Lady’, obviously to tie in with the current ‘Best Of Love’ compilation album but seemingly only available as an Epic single-sided promo (XPR 1466) … ‘The Look Of Love‘, the Soul II Soul/Smith & Mighty/Fresh 4/Sybil style pre-dating Wild Bunch track mentioned last week, did come out here (as I rather thought) on the B-side of ‘Friends And Countrymen‘, the group’s last single before they disbanded (they weren’t “dropped”, as Ian Dewhirst mistakenly thought) — plus the (by now doubtless suddenly much in demand!) track is due out again on a ‘Soul In Darkness‘ Fourth & Broadway ballad compilation album … Fourth & Broadway, incidentally, have already snapped up here the sizzling Mondeé Oliver ‘Stay Close’ … Toney D’Addezio, whose recently reviewed ‘Housework’ is credited as being by his alter ego, Toney D & The Lovetrip Orchestra, is indeed Italian but has lived in Switzerland since he was tiny, based in Berne where he jocks at Babalu and owns both the Fantasy import record shop (“Switzerland’s best”) and Fantasy International Records label — ‘Housework’ is due again within the next two months as a vocal version featuring none other than Arnold Jarvis, retitled as ‘I Want To Have Your Love‘ … Sybil’s album, perhaps surprisingly (or maybe not, considering the deserved plugs she’s had on ‘The Hit Man And Her’ recently!), will be out here on PWL Records rather than Champion, as will be ‘Don’t Make Me Over’s follow up ‘Walk On By’ … US Warner Bros vice president Benny Medina took a select few of the Prestatyn weekender crew to dinner at Bodysgallen Hall near Llandudno (on my recommendation, the best haute cuisine restaurant in North Wales!), where he revealed that the upcoming Quincy Jones album includes every vintage of performer from Siedah Garrett and Heavy D to Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald in tracks which document and encapsulate the development of black music during his lifetime — and on one totally acappella track Quincy beats out a rhythm on the metal plate inserted into his skull during an old operation, to the scatting accompaniment of such as Bobby McFerrin and Al Jarreau! … Paul Simpson ‘Walk Away From Love’ on its commercial pressing is flipped also by the Candi Staton featuring old 113bpm You Got The Love Mix of ‘Musical Freedom’ … ZTT which originally stood for Zang Tumb Tumb appear to have reverted to simply Zang for their 808 State release … Twin Hype ‘For Those Who Like To Groove’ is flipped by the sombre 92⅓-0bpm ‘Lyrical Rundown‘, while the Quartz remix’s original 12-inch repeating B-side makes the less spacious Original Mix now 0-118⅓bpm and the sparse bumpily chugging ‘R – U – Ready’ 122½bpm … Izit’s UK B-side to the ‘Stories’ remake has the initially sparser 0-93⅛bpm Jackanory Mix and “you gotta feel the music in your gut, get up and move your butt” muttering 93bpm Stories Mix … Looney Tunes ‘Just As Long As I Got You’ on its XL Recordings UK pressing, as well as the 121bpm Warehouse Rave Remix, has the 121bpm Brooklyn Club Mix, (0-)122bpm Original Version and 120⅔bpm Bones Breaks … Paradise Orchestra’s B-side mixes of ‘Satisfy Your Dream’ are the trickily spurting 119½-0bpm Magic Fly Mix and 0-119¼-0bpm Percappella … Keith Thompson’s jerkily jumping (and now accurately calculated) 119¾-117½bpm Trenchtown Rock Mix of ‘Can’t Take It’ is flipped by the different 117¾bpm Raggamuffin House Mix and stuttery 119¾-120⅓bpm Jerk House Style Mix … Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King ‘Day To Day’ in its Dance Mix, on closer examination, should be a nit-picking 106-105¾bpm, the other dubs and edits all being about that too … ‘(There’ll Be A) Better Day’ in its Original Mix is now 118½bpm on Julian Jonah’s remix pressing … Sublevel’s much longer and emptier also Basement Boys created B-side Original Dance Mix of the Andrea Holdclaw wailed ‘Don’t Blame Me’ is a slower 117-117⅔-117½bpm — that I think, and trust, gets us up to date with all the additional tracks and mixes on previously reviewed singles which I had no time to calculate in full when new … BBC Radio Lancashire’s very listenable soul show presenter Gary Hickson and expatriate Merseysider Jon Williams are guest jocks with Desa at Birkenhead’s next The Defhouse on Monday (27) … Steve Poindexter’s ‘Computer Madness‘, a 127½bpm house track from a US Muzique Records 12-inch reviewed back in June, never hit The Club Chart but is getting sustained action up north, especially in the north-east — could it be the next ‘The Theme’? … TV coverage of the Berlin Wall has been especially fascinating considering that most of the action has been centred on the Brandenburg Gate, only a few hundred yards from the Tempodrom where just over two months earlier BCM Records had held their three day Summer Dance Festival, during which I walked around (and photographed extensively) the whole length of the wall that has received most attention … IT’S SUCH A GOOD VIBRATION!
SOUL II SOUL ‘Get A Life (Club Mix)’ (10 Records TENX 284)
Out commercially next week. this typical sneakily unemphatic jiggly rambling 101bpm jogger offsets Jazzie’s philosophical husky muttering with his cousin Marcia Lewis’s vocal refrain and even some background kiddie chorus by 15 of his nephews and nieces, using basically the same backing track as the flip’s long promised and now remixed also 101bpm autobiographically muttered ‘Jazzie’s Groove (New Version)‘ (instrumental Piano Version and 100⅞bpm Bonus Beats too), but perhaps it’s not quite punchy enough a ‘song’ to be as big a crossover hit in the coming month as it might have been at a less fiercely competitive time of the year. An apparently unreleased remix of ‘Back To Life’ will couple another subsequently marketed pressing, note.
MONDEÉ OLIVER ‘Stay Close’ (US Gherkin Records GKE 1055)
Causing a huge stir, this Larry ‘Mr Fingers’ Heard mixed late Seventies jazz-funk flavoured speedily pulsing but unhurried girl doodled 126½bpm weaving and wriggling floater — in “Fingers” Club and Short Vocals, Renegade Philly Dub and Piano Winelight instrumentals – has the haunting atmosphere of a ‘Pacific State’ and is sure to shoot up The Club Chart.
THE CHIMES ‘Heaven (Heavy Club)’ (CBS 655432-6)
This excellent joyously soulful Chaka Khan-ish wailer has now been promoed on two separate pressings, the first (XPR 1467) with a superior funky drum and tambourine wriggled 112½bpm Peter Hinds mix flipped by Frankie Foncett’s more drily thrumming stark 113¼bpm Attack Vocal Club Mix, and the second (XPR 1473) with the group’s own emptier more dubwise piano jangled jolting 112⅔bpm The Chimes Remix flipped by another, again drum and tambourine driven though less mellow than before, 0-112⅓-0bpm Peter Hinds Remix … and it’s this latter Hinds mix which for some reason turns out to be the above billed commercial A-side, flipped in turn by yet another new striding 1121/2-0bpm Alternative 12″ Mix by Hinds, plus the previously unheard very stark minimal bass thumped slow weaving mournful though happily worded 713/4bpm ‘So Much In Love (Extended Demo Version)’.
F.P.I. PROJECT present RICH IN PARADISE featuring the vocals of PAOLO DINI ‘Going Back To My Roots’ (Rumour Records RUMAT 9, via Pacific)
Preambled on both sides by a phonetically muttered “hey you, don’t be silly, put a condom on your willy”, this episodically piano jangled and bass thrummed lush instrumental 0-121 bpm Italo house treatment of the currently much revived Lamont Dozier classic began by getting more DJ reaction for the eponymous ‘Rich In Paradise’ B-side (which may only have been a result of the import’s initially confusing labelling, although it is equally good), an also 0-121bpm emptier ‘strings’ synthed languidly chugging groove using the same backing track but minus the more urgent ‘Roots’ elements and plus some ‘French Kiss’-style female groaning (brief acoustic ‘Piano In Paradise’ too).
E.V.O.E. ‘Este Amor (Club Version)’ (Italian New Music NMX 200)
Covering all the currently fashionable bases, this Pippo Landro (of L.A.N.D.R.O. & C.O.) produced mellow sax chorded, grand piano jangled. vibes-ishly jingled, Spanish guitar picked and sexy girl sighed 113bpm amalgamation of ‘Pacific State’ and ‘Sueno Latino’ (with a waves washed sexier somehow more “Spanish” 0-115¼-0bpm Dub Version) is already getting good reaction — well, it would with that lot, wouldn’t it?!
K-Y-ZE ‘Stomp (Move Jump Jack Your Body)’ (Cooltempo COOLX 194)
With a group name pronounced “kay-wize”, this guys rapped, chanted and barked Smack Music Productions creation was actually promoed (and included on the ‘This Is Garage’ compilation album) back in the summer, but as a different spikier sparse original treatment, now being out in just three of the subsequent import’s more smoothly shuffling, burbling and strolling remixed versions, David E. Shaw & Troy Patterson’s 121bpm Steeltoe Mix (slightly speeded up and sensibly re-edited here to start with the catchy “get ready to let the dogs loose” hook) and instrumental 119¾bpm Jackboot Mix, and Tony Humphries’ more tightly rapping also 119¾bpm Zanzibar Mix.
SYDNEY YOUNGBLOOD ‘Feeling Free (The “Jazzy Who?” Mix)’ (Circa Records YRT 40)
Driven by a bumpily rumbling treatment of Linda Clifford’s ‘Runaway Love’ rhythm and duetted by wailing Elaine Hudson, this deliberately Soul II Soul-like (check the title for further confirmation!) strong chunkily jogging 106¼bpm clubs aimed B-side is far better on 12-inch than the official A-side’s ‘Sit And Wait’, which in its instrumentally preambled lurching 107¾bpm Stationary To Stationary Mix and 108bpm Dub seems rather boringly pedestrian – although, to judge from its video, a much tighter and catchier version obviously must exist on the radio aimed seven inch.
QUEEN LATIFAH ‘All Hail The Queen’ (Gee Street GEE A5, via Rough Trade/De-Mix)
This immediately fast selling rap album was produced by DJ Mark The 45 King except when otherwise specified, with the standout Prince Paul produced typically idiosyncratic De La Soul guesting jauntily silly (as in stoopid fresh!) (0-)108⅛-0-108⅛bpm ‘Mama Gave Birth To The Soul Children’, Louie Vega produced fruity baritone sax backed Soul II Soul-ish 94⅓bpm ‘Latifah’s Law‘, churning hip house-ish 119½bpm ‘Come Into My House‘, words spitting murkily shuffling 117½bpm ‘Queen Of Royal Badness‘, Sly & The Family Stone ‘Dance To The Music’ quoting 115⅔bpm ‘Dance For Me‘, DJ Mark The 45 King duetted brassily rolling 98⅔bpm ‘A King And Queen Creation‘, KRS One produced jittery 96⅞bpm ‘Evil That Men Do‘, sombre 91bpm ‘Wrath Of My Madness‘, reggae accented 81⅓bpm ‘Princess Of The Posse‘, 81⅓bpm ‘Inside Out‘ and Daddy-O produced/duetted 72⅓bpm ‘The Pros‘, plus of course the Monie Love duetted 107¼bpm ‘Ladies First‘, this latter also being out as
QUEEN LATIFAH & MONIE LOVE ‘Ladies First (45 King Mix)’ (Gee Street GEE T23),
the mutually admiring American and British girls slyly trading lines around a joltingly scrubbing 107bpm brassy funk break with naggingly buzzing sax (107bpm Instrumental, 106⅞bpm Ultimatum and Beat Mixes too), and now in addition as ‘Ladies First (US Version)’ (Gee Street GEE T23Y),
a richer (88⅓-0-)107⅔bpm remix also by DJ Mark with a Latifah sung repeated title line refrain as well as the duetted rapping (107⅓bpm Radio Edit, 107⅔bpm Ladiestrumental and (0-)107⅔bpm Bonus Beats too).
ROXANNE SHANTÉ ‘Bad Sister’ (Breakout/Cold Chillin’ AMA 9013)
Cutting through with her distinctive piercingly plaintive vocal pitch, the attention engaging and often quite amusing narrative lyrics stand out on this long awaited Marley Marl produced album, containing quite a lot that’s already familiar although now somewhat remixed, with the wordy dry juddering 103bpm title track, exciting hip house 118½bpm ‘My Groove Gets Better‘, funkily jiggling 110½bpm ‘What’s On Your Mind‘, lazy guys introduced slinkily swaying 0-98bpm ‘Feelin’ Kinda Horny‘, movie plot paralleling 107bpm ‘Fatal Attraction‘, Dorrell & Mackintosh mixed recent 115½bpm ‘Live On Stage (Hip Hop Version)‘, jauntily chattering 106⅔bpm ‘Knockin’ Hiney‘, funky drummered 101bpm ‘Have A Nice Day (Remix)‘, acidic scratching 123½-0bpm ‘Go On Girl (Remix)‘, Tone Loc answering 121 bpm ‘Let’s Rock Y’All‘, slow sparse 93½bpm ‘Independent Woman‘, stark weaving 98bpm ‘Skeezer‘, ‘Push It’-type 132½bpm ‘Wack Itt (Remix)‘, brief stark 92⅔bpm ‘Gotta Get Paid‘.
SYBIL ‘Walk On By’ (US Next Plateau Records Inc NP50111)
Due out here on PWL Records so not surprisingly remixed (as Club and Radio versions) by Tony King in London at The Bunker despite still being on import, this logical follow-up to ‘Don’t Make Me Over’ is another Smith & Mighty-style Dionne Warwick classic reviving Soul II Soul-ishly rolling 95⅞bpm sweet swayer, a timelessly beautiful song that should do even better here (strongly coupled by the chunkily tripping 103⅛bpm ‘Here Comes My Love‘ and its 103bpm Instrumental) – but unfortunately Sybil already has a rival in the shape of
DINA CARROLL ‘Walk On By’ (Jive JIVE T 237),
an obviously Sybil inspired and, though it pains me to say it, also rather good gentle jiggly subtle rolling now slightly more swingbeat styled treatment, promoed in (0-)93⅞bpm Morality and Extended Mixes, which might just prove to be tougher for dancefloors.
THE PARIS FORD PROJECT ‘2 Far’ (US Paris Club Records PC 01)
A thunderthumbing bassist who has toured and/or recorded with such as BB&Q, Rick James, New Edition, Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King, Johnny Gill & Stacy Lattisaw, Arthur Baker and Lonnie Liston Smith, Paris draws his inspiration from the past yet is selling lots of copies of this interestingly old fashioned choppy funker, with husky vocals, snappy bass, chinking Chic-type guitar, jazz-funk tinges and (in the House Party Mix) leaping liveliness spread across its four main 122⅓bpm mixes (some may fluctuate by an infinitesimal fraction) — but then it does somehow come out sounding like a weird cross between ‘Brick House’ and ‘Pacific State’!
PATTI DAY ‘Right Before My Eyes (House Vocal)’ (Debut DEBTX 3088, via Pacific)
Originally about on US Starway Records back in January (when it managed to hit The Club Chart at number 100 for just one week) but more recently getting attention at warehouse raves as a bootleg (and rapidly reaching a Club Chart peak of 24 largely due to sales of the latter), this Michael Zager produced, Bruce Forest remixed bright but trickily disjointed jangling then thudding 115⅓-0bpm soulfully wailed stop-go strider is at last out here legally, flipped by its throbbingly rolling instrumental (0-)115⅝-0bpm House Groove and totally different juddery Latin hip hop 115⅓bpm Extended Club Mix.
KARYN WHITE ‘The Way You Love Me (12″ Remix)’ Warner Bros W2681T)
Although on seven inch it looks like you’ll still find this reissued LA & Babyface creation in its original jerkily juddering squeaky staccato pop version, the 12-inch has a superb brand new much slower and more soulful joltingly jogging 0-104⅝bpm Soul II Soul-ish tempo. with its now subtly anguished vocal offset by rippling vibes, swirling strings and other classily improved details, flipped by a similar Simp House Dub (which may indicate remix involvement by Paul Simpson — it’s hard to tell from a white labelled promo).
JD ‘Good Vibrations’ (Champion CHAMP 12-122)
John Laskowski’s simple synth chorded and piano jangled thumping 0-120⅔bpm prophetic old import B-side ‘sleeper’ has suddenly come of age now that people realise it’s stuffed full of Loleatta Holloway repeating “it’s such a good vibration” just like in all those current Italian recordings! On the flip are the more recently imported, other samples adding, 121 bpm The It’s Not Over Remix and different Peech Boys based nervily jittering 121-0bpm ‘I Ain’t Gonna Wait (Remix)‘.
T.D.P. ‘Ladies (Let’s Go)’ (Reachin’ Records RERT-001)
Dave Pearce and Mike Morrison launch their label with this already hot Doug Lazy-ish gruff guy rapped fluidly bubbling jaunty East London ‘jazz house’ jumper, sounding much the same as hip house to me, currently white labelled with 120¾bpm A-side or 121¼bpm and 121¾bpm B-side versions ahead of full release next week.
SILVER BULLET ’20 Seconds To Comply (Final Conflict)’ (Tam Tam Records TTT 019)
The hoarse High Wycombe rapper returns with an automaton growled “please put down your weapon” introed then tearingly frantic angry word spitting 0-127¾-127⅔-127¾-0-127⅔-0bpm jittery racer, too fast really to be hip house but nervily exciting whatever you call it, flipped by its scratchy instrumental 0-127⅔-0-127⅔-0bpm Omen Mix and the likewise 120-0bpm DJ Beats of his earlier ‘Bring Forth The Guillotine’, both the latter revealing their funky samples to good effect like this.
MAZE featuring FRANKIE BEVERLY ‘The Greatest Hits of Maze featuring Frankie Beverly/Lifelines – Volume 1’ (Capitol EST 2111)
An arguably inaccurate title as all you get are ‘Golden Time Of Day’, ‘Happy Feelin’s’, ‘Back In Stride’, ‘Running Away’, ‘While I’m Alone’, ‘Southern Girl’ (no ‘Twilight’, you’ll note), and – the track the album’s selling for – a rock steadily jiggling 106bpm now very different remix by none other than Hank Shocklee, Eric Sadler & Paul Shabazz, including some appropriately laid back guest rap from Kurtis Blow, of ‘Joy And Pain’ no less! Eric, Hank and Keith Shocklee also do the same, but with rather too much guest rap from Woody Wood, for the now circa 103⅛-103⅞bpm ‘Before I Let Go’, but it’s less essential.
REDHEAD KINGPIN & THE F.B.I. ‘Superbad Superslick (One World Remix)’ (10 Records TENX 286)
Familiar fluid bass underpinned infectious funkily syncopated 0-116⅓-116⅔-0bpm jiggly trotting rap, remorselessly wordy though far from overpoweringly as the vocal is well integrated into the mix – which may be a problem as it merely sets up a groove without much cutting through (One World Dub too, plus the popularly included old though still in demand jauntily driving 0-108⅔bpm ‘Do The Right Thing (Happiness Remix)’ by Jazzie B & Nellee Hooper).
adventures of STEVIE V ‘Dirty Cash (Money Talks)’ (Mercury MERX 311)
Acidically synthed and bumpily jolted shuffling lively hip house lurcher, with an attractive girl wailed main lyric and only Isolated bursts of Stevie’s male rap in the 0-121¼-121⅓bpm Dime & Dollar Mix and 0-121-121¼bpm Hard Cash Mix, or a more fully rapped 121¼bpm ‘Dirty Cash (Dirty Rap)‘ version.
TYREE featuring J.M.D. ‘Move Your Body’ (US DJ International Records DJ# 991)
Featuring a different though still Kool Rock Steady-style male rapper, the super duper producer’s latest vigorously swinging typical hip house bounder has varying degrees of shuffle and jangle on its 124½-124-124¼-0bpm Julian “Jumpin” Perez Mix, 124¼bpm LP Version-Tyree Mix, 0-124¾-124⅔bpm Boogie Man (Boggle Mix), and 124¾bpm Tyree (Lost His Vocal) Tyree Mix — and the last two are meant to be spelt and phrased like that!
THE PRINCE OF DANCE MUSIC, L.B. BAD PRESENTS: “The True Story Of House Music” (US Nugroove NG-033)
Lamont Booker promises more in the title than he actually delivers, though this multi-tracker is good enough for real house freaks with its electronically slurred muttering slippery ticking 124-0bpm Body Mechanix Authentic Garage Groove, acidically twittery spacious 124¼-0bpm Body Mechanix Instrumental, cowbell clonking mumbling jerky 120⅔-0bpm Body Mechanix Underground Mix, and mystically muttering pshta pshta-ed sparse 127¾-0bpm I’m So Alone (other tracks are tempoless).
RUTHJOY ‘Soul Power’ (MCA Records RJT 2)
The one time Krush girl sweetly sings a Soul II Soul-ish bass burbled and chimes tinkled breathily weaving ‘street soul’ swayer with some slippery scratching accents, in (0-)100⅓bpm Power and 100⅓-100¼-0bpm Soul Mixes (on its promo pressing, anyway).
CATHY DENNIS ‘Just Another Dream (12” Version)’ (Polydor CATHX 1)
Due commercially next week, this Dancin’ Danny D co-written and totally produced/arranged/mixed breezy bubbling plaintive 118¾-0bpm pop canterer by his current D Mob singer has a ‘Pacific State/Sueno Latino’-ishly snicked and piano jangled stuttery “harder” house-style 118¾bpm Funky Love Mix flip, while also in circulation on promo three weeks of separate release is a thunder stealing ‘Just Another Dream (Paul Simpson US Remix)’ (Polydor CATHR 1), giving the tune a more cleanly striding 118⅓bpm New Jersey style piano chorded pattering cool treatment flipped by its 118⅔bpm Dub and 7” Remix.
PISCES ‘Take Me Higher’ (Reachin’ Records PISCES 001T)
Girls cooed and groaned acidically burbling 125¾bpm lightweight ‘disco’ thumper with a chorus obviously inspired by, without directly copying, Sly & The Family Stone (instrumental flip).
OTHER NEWIES in brief include the inevitably excellent soulful LISA STANSFIELD ‘Affection’ (Arista LP); Smokey Robinson & The Miracles classic reviving ALYSON WILLIAMS ‘I Second That Emotion (J&M Emotional Club Remix)’ (Def Jam); “turn it up” punctuated moody rambling deep house BARDEUX ‘I Love The Bass Part 2 (Red Zone Mix)’ (US Enigma Records); piano pumped stuttery bright bounding DYNAMIC “D.J.” STEVE ‘Hip House Sample’ (Italian Meet Records); grand piano jangled, but not overly sampled, breathy girl muttered and panted cantering MALI CARVALHO ‘Fuego’ (Italian DiscoMagic); girl wailed grand piano jangled frantically leaping disco ANNIE JOICE ‘Make Me Feel’ (Italian New Music); simple synth chorded rattling sparse house “BIG BABY” ‘Big House’ (US Big Productions); tinkling jangly brisk smooth instrumental CHICCO SECCI PROJECT ‘N.E.W. Y.O.R.K.’ (Italian New Music); house like but oddly too slow seeming lurching “bass boom” instrumental YANNI ‘Niki Nana’ (US Private Music); largely downtempo white boys rap 3RD BASS ‘The Cactus Album’ (US Def Jam LP); Lil Louis inspired German guy muttered SIGMUND UND SEINE FREU(N)DE ‘Erdbeermund (French-Kiss-Mix)’ (German EMI). There are actually many more, but my computer disk is full!
