BEATS & PIECES

BEN LIEBRAND’s previously promoed 0-110¼-110⅓-114⅓-114¾-118-119¼bpm ‘The Megamix‘ (of ‘Never Too Much/Sugar And Spice/I Really Didn’t Mean It/The Glow Of Love/Super Lady’) has turned up commercially at last (now called just ‘The Mix’) as 12 inch flip to Luther Vandross ‘Here And Now’ (Epic LUTH T13), one of his dead slow 37½-0bpm ballads, also coupled with the tenderly weaving 93⅞bpm ‘For You To Love’ . . . Champion are soon releasing the sizzling J.T. And The Family ‘Moments In Soul’ here, while ffrr have snapped up Mr Fingers ‘What About This Love’ for February 12 release . . . Norman Cook’s Hallelujah Mix of Fidelfatti featuring Ronnette ‘Just Wanna Touch Me’ appears to have got lost in the Christmas rush and is re-released next week . . . London’s other new incremental radio station (in addition to KISS-fm) will be Lord Hanson’s apparently US styled MoR/easy listening Melody FM . . . Birmingham’s much travelled Des Mitchell, three times a Technics UK DJ mixing finalist (in ’86/7/8), was during that time based in the Canary Islands but now, after brief stints this year in Toronto, Chicago and Majorca, is in Italy at Perugia’s Red Zone (owned by Keith Giles of Gravesend’s Slammer), with his brother Funky Bunny jocking upstairs — Des also spins house on Perugia’s Astra Radio 91 . . . Suffolk ‘underground’ DJ Nikky K (jocking at Ipswich’s La Dolce Vita Wednesdays, Woodhall Country Club Thursdays and Woodbridge’s Slam! at the Waggon & Horses Sundays) reports that breakdancing is making something of a comeback in his area, almost exclusively among skateboarders . . . IT’S SUCH A GOOD VIBRATION!


HOT VINYL

KYM MAZELLE ‘Was That All Was (Def Mix)’ (Syncopate 12SY 32)
Sturdily bounding in David Morales’ 122⅓-0bpm remix (with an Edit and more stolid twittery 119⅓-0bpm Dub too), this Jean Cam classic reviving Marshall Jefferson produced canterer is soon to be followed by Les Adams’ remixes, amongst other marketing alternatives.

CULTURE BEAT — FEATURING JO VAN NELSEN ‘Der Erdbeermund (Get Into Magic Mix)’ (German CBS Dance Pool 655429 6)
Francois Villon translating — the 15th century French ‘Vagabond King’ poet, most famous for “Ou sont les neiges d’antan?” (“Where are the snows of yesteryear?”) — German muttered tempoless then gorgeous languidly tinkling and pulsing Sueno Latino/Mr Fingers-ish 0-117¾-0bpm haunting ambient house (Pacific State’-type (0-)118-0bpm Instrumental Magic flip), not to be confused with a ‘French Kiss’-style German track of the same name by Sigmund Und Seine Freu(n)de. Massive!

DR. MOUTHQUAKE ‘Love On Love (Mouthquake Master Mix)’ (More Protein PROT3- 12, via Virgin)
Possibly best described as Terence Trent D’Arby sings house in Ten City style, this Bruce Forest & Paul Wright remixed superb classy 121-0bpm Jeremy Healy co-creation is breathily falsetto each side of a gruffer rap break by the E-Zee Possee, with an impressively vocal Dub Of Death flip. Not to be missed!

TRIBAL HOUSE ‘Motherland (Freedom Mix)’ (US Pow Wow Records PW 454)
Winston Jones produced excellent throbbingly striding unhurried 121 bpm Pierre Salandy and Karen Bernod wailed song of hope, presumably for South Africa’s apartheid sufferers (they don’t exactly spell out the message), with a tighter Radio Mix and booming 121¼bpm Africa Dub and Instrumental Mix, fast becoming one of the hottest sounds of the moment thanks also to 120¾bpm advance UK promos on Cooltempo.

PUBLIC ENEMY ‘Welcome To The Terrordome’ (US Def Jam recordings 44 73135)
Eagerly awaited but disappointingly not that different (sampling JB beats and even “this is a journey into sound”!) densely churning and droning 111⅓-0bpm typical angry rap, with Flavor Flav introed 0-111⅓bpm Terrormental and Terror-beat dubs.

TRANSPHONIC ‘Light Up, Plug In Bug Out’ (US Nugroove NG-034)
SMASH created but Peter Daou keyboarded (and JB’s-ishly accented) terrific jazz-funkily rippling and throbbing 122-121¾bpm instrumental chugger, coupled on a three-tracker by the Manu Dibango-ishly prodded jittering 119¾bpm ‘The Funk Flows Freestyle‘ and appropriately “jungly” samples woven twittery squidging 119bpm ‘Jungle Tech‘ instrumentals.

DIGITAL UNDERGROUND ‘The Humpty Dance’ (US Tommy Boy/TNT Records TB 944)
Lowdown dirty ‘Atomic Dog’-type rolling 103⅓bpm P’funk backed zany new dancestep’s lazily drawled instructions, in long B-side Bonus Hump Mix, short A-side Mini-Hump Radio Mix, and Humpstrumental Mix. Do the humpty hump till you just don’t care!

SAX ‘Don’t Turn Your Back On Me’ (US Loud House Records WAR-063)
Clonked, clanged and Elan girls chanted 123¼bpm scurrying Todd Terry creation (in ‘Twilight Zone’-ish Halloween Mix, more typically synthed Deep House Mix, and percussively skittering bubbly Funny Bone Pop versions), belatedly hitting as the hotter flip of the disjointed drums bashed basically ‘Heavy Vibes’-ish rumbling, hollering and lurching ‘Give Yourself To Me‘ (in 119¼-0bpm Club Mix and echoing 0-119¼-0bpm Rubber Dub versions).

JUNGLE BROTHERS ‘Done By The Forces Of Nature’ (US Warner Bros 1-26072)
Due out here next week (K926072-1), a no doubt De La Soul inspired drawling tracks crammed moody rap album, with the UK single scheduled strong jauntily rolling mellow samples driven ‘Rappers Delight’-ish 0-110bpm ‘What “U” Waitin’ “4”?’, already US issued ‘White Lines’ introed/’Looking For The Perfect Beat’ accented (0-)115bpm ‘Beyond This World‘, snappily P’funky 1111/4bpm ‘“U” Make Me Sweat‘, De La Soul, Monie Love and Q-Tip joined gently swirling 113bpm ‘Doin’ Our Own Dang‘, Bohannon accented 112bpm ‘Feelin’ Alright‘, breezily jogging (0-)101¾bpm ‘J. Beez Comin’ Through‘, sinuously scratching 0-108⅔bpm ‘In Dayz “2” Come‘, Coasters ‘Shoppin’ For Clothes’ based 91bpm ‘Kool Accordin’ “2” A Jungle Brother‘, wordily churning (0-)115bpm ‘Tribe Vibes‘, black pride teaching bitter 111bpm ‘Acknowledge Your Own History‘, subduedly weaving (0-)113bpm ‘Done By The Forces Of Nature‘, relaxed 0-101 bpm ‘Belly Dancin’ Dina‘, jiggly languid 94bpm ‘Beeds On A String‘, pattering instrumental 0-121bpm ‘Good Newz Comin’‘, sombre 0-95⅔bpm ‘Black Woman‘, doodling 0-105-0bpm ‘Sunshine‘.

VICKY MARTIN ‘Nowhere To Run’ (US Movin’ Records MR007)
Our own Chris Paul co-produced this fiercely wailed Martha & The Vandellas revival, in chunkily galloping (0-)123¾-123⅓-123¾-123⅓-124-0bpm Got Me Goin’ In Circles Mix, tighter (0-)125bpm Radio Dash, smoothly bounding (0-)125¼bpm Shank’s Underground Mix, and throbbing 0-125-0bpm Movin’ Dub Mix treatments.

DIONNE ‘Your Lies (The Big Club Mix)’ (US Bigshot Records VS 140)
Komix created typically simple burbling bass driven plaintively squawked and synth stabbed 121¾-123¼-123-122⅓-123-122½bpm bright canterer, with a chunkily chorded 122¼bpm The Big Dub and 121¾-123⅓-122⅓-123bpm Radio Edit.

LIMELIFE ‘Cause You’re Right On Time’ (US Loud House Records WAR-064)
Todd Terry latches onto the Loleatta bandwagon with this ‘Ride On Time’ quoting (so to speak!) but otherwise typical jerkily skittering jolter, in 0-123bpm Hideout and more densely jittering guitar and keyboard tones overlaid 123bpm Old School Mixes, flipped by a judderingly shuffling also 123bpm ‘I Wanna Go Bang (Old Time Dub)‘ revamp of his Dinosaur X inspired oldie, now with “please, please, please” quotes and jangly breaks.

POWERCUT CREW (featuring MC Champ) ‘You Get Down’ (Vinyl Lab Records VL007T)
Adventurously different UK hip hop eight track double-sider with this quietly mumbled 116½bpm jiggler in gently burbling Club House and tighter scratching Hip Hop Club Mixes, coupled by the jauntier Joe 90 featuring raggamuffin rapped ‘This Is How It Should Be Done’ in fast talking 104bpm Hip Hop Club and more tongue twisting 103¾bpm Breezing Mixes (both with Radio Edits and Instrumentals too).

ROOMMATES ‘Voices In The Dark (Vocal Club Mix)’ (US Strictly Rhythm SR 1202)
Orgasmically groaned and whimpered by a couple who are getting it on in disturbingly horny style, this rumbling and wriggling bass bumped 0-119¾bpm rambler is also in a more electro 120bpm Club Instrumental, from which some amusing dialogue starts the 0-119¾-0bpm Semi-Acapella, plus a sadly groan-less 119⅓bpm Smooth Dub.

NENEH CHERRY ‘Inna City Mamma (Completely Re-Recorded Extended Version)’ (Circa Records YRT 42)
Her more street cred than usual remixed 98¾bpm Soul II Soul (and, midway, De La Soul)-ish slinkily weaving jogger is coupled commercially by the similarly weaving subdued 97⅛bpm ‘Kisses On The Wind (Lovers Hip Hop Extended Version)‘, urgently jittering rap 0-116bpm ‘The Next Generation‘ and funkily jiggling 110⅓bpm ‘So Here I Come‘, the initial promo however replacing the latter with the original 98¾-0bpm ‘Inna City Mamma‘ (YRTPR 42), while also separately promoed on white label is the now more conversationally rapped ‘The Next Generation’ (NENEH 1) in Bruce Forest’s 0-118bpm sparsely chugging Rap One, more tightly throbbing Sub Woofer and patteringly thrumming Final Mixes, plus Dave Randall’s 118bpm instrumental Dave’s Dub of the latter, but to confuse things yet further the even newer commercial Remixes (YRTX 42) pressing has the not that different but perhaps more slithery 98¾bpm ‘Inna City Mamma (Cold Blooded)‘, edited 97⅓bpm ‘Kisses On The Wind (Lovers Hip Hop)’, longer ‘So Here I Come (The Original)’ and previously promoed ‘The Next Generation (Rap One)’. Phew!

FRANKIE KNUCKLES PRESENTS: Marshall Jefferson ‘Move Your Body (’89 Remix)’ (Trax Records TRAXT 4, via Radical Records/Spartan)
Following up the Jamie Principle featuring ‘Your Love’, a new and not entirely successful, girl squawked jerky hip house-type 0-119⅔bpm revamp of 1986’s House Music Anthem, flipped by Marshall’s own piano pattered and guy nagged cymbal schlurping 0-122¼-122bpm Original Version, disjointedly acappella at the end, plus its inaccurately titled much tighter 122⅓bpm so-called House Acapella.

LONNIE GORDON ‘Right Before My Eyes (Remix)’ (Supreme Records SUPET 155)
Cleanly jittering 120bpm Dave Randall remix of the girl wailed Patti Day cover version, brighter and better than the flip’s Bruce Forest produced tricky acappella-ishly introed and disjointed 0-118⅓bpm N.Y. Mix, which was 0-118⅔bpm when originally released (confusingly under the same catalogue number) with Bruce’s similarly episodic (0-)118¼-0bpm Fork Mix and 0-118⅓-0bpm Instrumental Mix.

CUT THE Q ‘Who Needs A Love Like That’ (Submission DJSUBX 016)
This beefily lurching sort of modern UK funk trotter is treated three different ways, in acidically synthed quavering 119¾bpm Groove Remix, Lisa Stansfield-ish 118bpm vocal, and long atmospherically throbbing Sueno Latino-ish 116¼-116⅓-116⅔-0bpm Who Needs… …A Love Like That mixes.

M-I-CARA ‘Casa Beat’ (US N-Joy Records VS 001)
A Spanish/Italian production, this piano jangled simple 118½bpm jauntily tripping instrumental chugger, double A-sided by the friskier galloping 125¼bpm ‘Pianista Te Quiero‘ with female panted title line and butch shouts, may look like one of those Italian fake imports but is genuinely a US release — and, to prove it, the label’s Johnnie Capisani is looking for a licensing deal on 010-1-212-484 9710 (Fax: 010-1-516-321 1664)!

WESTBAM ‘Hold Me Back’ (Swanyard Records Limited SYRT 6, via The Total Record Company/BMG)
The Westphallian DJ whizz has been doubly busy, with his own snickety speeding (0-)123¾-0bpm electro jitterer, flipped by the more juddery electro 121¾-0bpm ‘Cold Stomper‘, and (on an appropriately named sister label) with the similarly WestBam/JanKuhn created SAXOPHONE ‘Saxophone‘ (Cygnet Records CYGT 2), an altogether wilder and less disciplined honking, squealing and thrashing strange jerky 123¼bpm sax and drums instrumental workout, flipped by the monotonous more Duane Eddy/Link Wray-like 0-109¾bpm ‘Alarm Clock‘.

OTHER HOT NEWIES in brief include the complicatedly coupled and packaged War `Galaxy’-ish jazzily oddball excellent LIL LOUIS ‘I Called U‘ (ffrr FXDJ 123); ‘Roots’-ish piano jangled (E’-ALLorA) ‘So What‘ (Italian Dischi Dovero GOSSX 1); Doug Lazy-ish gruff unhurried hip house TONY SCOTT ‘Get Into It‘ (Champion CHAMP 12-232); UK issued hot catchy Italo-pop rap GINO LATINO ‘Welcome‘ (ffrr FX 126); at last commercially released excellent rolling rap SHE ROCKERS ‘Jam It Jam‘ (Jive JIVE T 233); multi-track promoed jaunty skipping swingbeat (the best thing on her album), now Shep Pettibone remixed and Heavy D rapped JANET JACKSON ‘Alright‘ (Breakout USATDJ 681); EP culled remixed ‘Sueno Latino’-ish MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE ‘Space Talk‘ (Strictly Underground HEMAN 002); album culled retro-acidic ADAMSKI ‘N-R-G‘ (MCA Records MCAT 1386); EP culled jittery chugging FLOWMASTERS ‘Let It Take Control (Judge Jules Remix)‘ (XL Recordings XLT-7); UK issued Smith & Mighty-ish SYBIL ‘Walk On By‘ (Lisson Records DOLE Q14); newly FON Force remixed chunkily weaving 1984 ‘sleeper’ classic (now coupled with First Choice ‘Let No Man Put Asunder’) ROYALLE DELITE ‘(I’ll Be A) Freak For You‘ (Supreme Records SUPET 157); thinly sung Mary Jane Girls classic reviving (pipping a rival Chris Paul production to the post!)

One thought on “January 13, 1990: Kym Mazelle, Culture Beat, Dr. Mouthquake, Tribal House, Public Enemy”

  1. It’s two weeks in a row for “jungle”, here represented by Transphonic’s “appropriately “jungly” samples woven twittery squidging 119bpm ‘Jungle Tech’ instrumental“.

    I’d forgotten that, four and a half years before The Notorious B.I.G. sampled Mtume’s “Juicy Fruit”, Wrecks-N-Effect got there first with their own “Juicy”.

    The opening strings of Jungle Brothers’ “What U Waitin’ 4” put me in mind of Madonna’s “Vogue”, so I assumed they both lifted the same sample from MFSB or The Salsoul Orchestra – but whosampled.com doesn’t register any such link, so maybe my ears are deceiving me.
