BEATS & PIECES
RECENTLY REVIEWED imports now out here include Tribal House ‘Motherland – A-fri-ca‘ (Cooltempo COOLX 198), here in its Freedom, Radio, and Africa Dub Mixes, without the Instrumental; Alternations ‘Feel It For You‘ (RCA PT 49304), here in Indian Summer, Jungle, and Planetary Access (Edit) Mixes; The Gap Band ‘All Of My Love‘ (Capitol 12CL 558), which recently topped the US Black Charts is out here only in its Extended and Just Coolin’ Mixes (106½bpm) and Bonus Beats (107¼bpm); Morenas ‘Hazme Sonar‘ (BCM Records BCM 380 X), here much slower than its Italian pressing in the promoed Massimino & Cutmaster-G Club Mix, Angelino Vocal Dub Mix, Pianopella (120½bpm), Cutmaster-G Techno Trip Mix (117¾bpm), not all necessarily being on the commercial UK version — nor likewise are all the mixes reviewed last week of the same production team’s Sueno Latino ‘Luxuria’ (BCM Records BCM 379 X) . . . Vernell Foster ‘Love, Joy And Happiness‘ (SBK.One 12SBKDJ 7005), an Adeva-ish garage treatment of Al Green’s oldie, has exploded in the Club Chart on mailing list promo but despite such encouraging initial reaction, is not due commercially until it has been remixed further . . . Electribe 101’s now nearly year old ‘Talking With Myself’, something of a trend setter at the time as has been subsequently shown, is on a double-sided promo (Mercury HIP 3) ahead of reissue in its new Frankie Knuckles mix (113½bpm) . . . Massive Attack’s Big Beat Mix (100¾bpm) is considerably slower than the Blue Zone mixed A-side of Lisa Stansfield’s ‘Live Together’, due commercially next week . . . Breakout have only now just released fully the current US Top 10 hit Seduction ‘Two To Make It Right‘, promoed since the autumn . . . Alan Coulthard, despite already remixing it for commercial release, has done an even better re-remix of Mel & Kim’s ‘Showing Out’ for the Music Factory subscription service (DJs wishing to subscribe should call 01-960 2739) . . . Dionne’s ‘Your Lies‘ when its released here on CityBeat next week will be flipped by a Trevor Fung and Nick Halkes created ‘Bassed On Dionne’ megamix of various dubs and other not necessarily related overlays . . . Centerfield Assignment’s ‘Mi Casa’, from getting on for a year ago, is finally due here in a fortnight with new remixes on XL Recordings, as is, a week earlier, Ellis D’s ‘I Will Survive’ . . . Silver Bullet appears with DJs Pete Smith, PHI and Treble D this Saturday (27) at ‘Sensateria’ in Norwich’s University of East Anglia . . . Frankie ‘Bones’ and Tommy Musto, soon to be known as Musto & Bones rather than the Flowmasters when they have a brand new album of actual songs on CityBeat in March, are currently touring the UK at Bristol Buzbys (Jan 24), Blackpool Sequins (25), Edinburgh Spanish Harlem (26), Manchester Hacienda (27), Glasgow Choke (28), Luton Colosseum (Feb 1), Braintree The Barn (2), London She-Nola (3) — a really well worked out itinerary in its earlier stages, just so long as it doesn’t snow! . . . Jeff Young on Radio 1 is having rapidly to retitle his ‘National Fresh’ rap segment, not previously having realised that this was the name of Mike Allen’s syndicated ILR show, the rights still being owned by sponsors TDK . . . John and Shaun, jocking at the weekend in Players and Kiko’s nightclubs, work at Wakefield’s EGS Records shop and hope that between them they helping build that town’s black/dance music market . . . The Dance Corporation have a number of PA tours on offer, including A Man Called Adam. Call Tim Rudling on 01 878 5022 . . . Kym Mazelle is currently in the studio with Jazzy B, though no-one’s revealing what they’re working on —the Soul II Soul single perhaps? . . . IT’S SUCH A GOOD VIBRATION!

ROB BASE ‘Turn It Out (Go Base) (New Age Meltdown)’ (114¼bpm) (Profile PROFT 275)
Remixed here by Chad Jackson and punctuated throughout by Sueno Latino/808 State-type whippoorwill warbles (the ‘new age’ ingredient?), this now DJ E-Z Rock-less enthusiastically churning frisky canterer alternates word spitting fast rap with a catchily sung “doo doo doo, do-do” chant, and is far from routine hip house, flipped by Chad’s “go, go, go” prodded more hardcore hip hop rapping Full Control Meltdown (114¼bpm) and sparser scratching Out Of Control Mix (114½bpm). Rob’s import album may not have been so hot, but — having hit The Club Chart purely on mailing list response ahead of full release next week — this certainly is!
MICROGROOVE ‘What It Is?’ (Norman Cook)
D-A DON ‘Keep Movin’’ (Norman Cook)
MOTHER F**KA ‘I’m Not Satisfied’ (Norman Cook)
GINO LATINO ‘Welcome’ (116¾bpm) (ffrr FX 126)
Now as big as it was always gonna be, this funky samples prodded jiggly chugging phonetically muttered catchy Italo pop-rap dates from 1988 — it’s actually by Jovanotti in his earlier incarnation as the original Gino Latino — but, despite gay attention when new, didn’t hit most clubs until last September as a US pressing, biding its time as a floor-filling ‘sleeper’ since then to explode on UK release (here without the import’s “turn it up” intro though otherwise much the same as that Long Version, followed immediately by a twittery reprise rather than the Radio Version and flipped by Vocal and Instrumental edits).
MR. MONDAY ‘Appreciate’ (120½bpm) (Greedy B Records 12 GREEB 11, via G&M/The Total Record Company/BMG)
Debbion (a girl) coos and wails this Judge Jules co-created extraordinarily jaunty and commercial bubbling infectious light jiggler, hard to resist, flipped by its whippoorwill warbled instrumental — separately titled as ‘Keep On’ — in Piano Groove and Sax Mix versions. Given the right exposure, a potential crossover smash.
ROCK FLOWERS ‘Fool’s’ (Norman Cook)
TERENCE TRENT D’ARBY ‘To Know Someone Deeply Is To Know Someone Softly’ (Norman Cook)
EARTH PEOPLE ‘Reach Up To Mars’ (121¼bpm) (US Underworld Records AP 140)
Exciting instantly massive Joey Longo created snapping and shuffling instrumental jazz-funk house leaper, probably inspired by Dexter Wansel’s old ‘Life On Mars’, simple and powerful in Martian, Raw, and 808 Bonus Mixes, with woofer rattling bass resonance booming through at times.
BEATS INTERNATIONAL ‘Dub Be Good To Me’ (95¾v bpm) (Go.Beat GODX 39)
Inspired by Jazzie B’s example, Norman Cook has gathered around him his own Soul II Soul-like organisation-cum-group, debuting with this Lindy wailed reggae-ishly undulating slinky revamp of The SOS Band’s ‘Just Be Good To Me’, flipped by ragamuffin guys toasted chunkier Invasion Of The Freestyle Discuss and amusingly introed terrific truly dubwise Invasion Of The Estate Agents variations (95½v bpm), due fully next week but too hot to hold on promo white label.
JACKSTREET INC. ‘Can’t Do It Alone’ (128½-129bpm) (Fourth & Broadway 12 BRW 164)
Mike ‘Hitman’ Wilson “presented” but Reg Rodgers created exciting War rhythms driven and other samples woven charging frantic stuttery house, kicking off an instrumental four-tracker which also has the sparser (and unrelated despite speed similarities) slippery pumping ‘Break It Down‘ (128½v bpm), squiggly acidic ‘Makin’ House Music‘ (128¾v bpm), and wriggly hollow washing machine style ‘Calypso Breakdown’ (128¼v bpm), all making a lively enough package to do quite well.
MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE ‘Space Talk’ (122½bpm) (Strictly Underground HEMAN 002)
Singled out from Dave Lee & Mark Ryder’s Strictly Limited EP for further remixes, this usefully Sueno Latino-ish (though not whippoorwill warbled!) lush synthesised strings washed jittery breezy canterer is now in Hyper Spaced, Spaced Out and Inner Space Mixes (plus a tempoless Reprise).
JUNIOR REID ‘One Blood’ (Graeme Park)
GIL SCOTT-HERON ‘Space Shuttle’ (The Sub Club Vocal Mix) (Graeme Park)
POOR RIGHTEOUS TEACHERS ‘Time To Say Peace’ (Remix) (Graeme Park)
ROXANNE SHANTÉ ‘Independent Woman (Remix)’ (96bpm) (Breakout USAT 676)
Sneakily nagging though not perhaps the most instantly obvious choice of material from her album (on which it was a slower 93½bpm), this CJ Mackintosh remixed steady bass jogged and piano jingled sombrely chatting roller has obviously pleased the queen of rap’s many fans, to judge from its fast climb up The Club Chart while still on promo, but may prove too monotonously droning for the wider pop market. The commercial 12-inch is flipped by CJ’s Dub Mix and jazz-funky Mellow Mix, the promo having his stuttery dubwise Empathy Mix too.
APHRODISIAC ‘Song Of The Siren’ (Graeme Park)
DEPTH CHARGE ‘Bounty Killers’ (Graeme Park)
A MAN CALLED ADAM ‘Musica De Amor’/’Amoeba’ (Graeme Park)
INNOCENCE ‘Natural Thing’ (Graeme Park)
SHUT UP AND DANCE ‘£10 (To Get In)’ (124bpm) (Shut Up And Dance Records SUAD I. via 01-254 2943)
Previously recording as Private Party, Philip ‘PJ’ Johnson and Carl ‘Smiley C’ Hyman’s twittering and thumping burbler is in sinewy sparse House and tougher more effective Hiphop versions, both with a “da da da” humming child providing much of the melody while the latter mix adds repeated “turn it down” comments, coupled by the word spitting though unhurriedly undulating samples woven ‘Rap’s My Occupation‘ and Instrumental (120¾bpm). By coincidence, also out now more fully is their debut release under this new name, very hard to find when first about around last August although charted then by a few lucky jocks:
SHUT UP AND DANCE ‘5678’ (122½bpm) (GTi Records GTI 009T)
A much more fiercely rapped George Kranz ‘Din Daa Daa’ based hard hitting jittery jumper in three still unspecified mixes on white label, likely to end up doing better.
DEF JEF featuring Etta James ‘Droppin’ Rhymes On Drums’ (123½bpm) (Delicious Vinyl 12 BRW 160)
With Fifties soul veteran Etta’s specially recorded “do it do it”-type encouragement, Mr Fortson rapidly raps a wriggly drum and bass bumped jitterer that’s more hip hop than hip house though at the latter’s tempo, Etta alone dropping all the interjections on the sparser ‘Etta Droppin’ Science On Drums‘, but she’s missing from the flip’s slower talking jiggly funk rumbled ‘God Made Me Funky (LP Version)‘ and Instrumental (95¾bpm).
DA POSSE ‘Searchin’ Hard (New US Remixes)’ (RePublic Records LICT 032)
The group’s Chicago based though Detroit techno influenced Hula and Fingers have completely remixed their plaintive guys moaned import oldie — something of an underground ‘sleeper’ boosted by London’s pirates — for belated UK release, now in soulful cantering Researched Mix (119¾bpm), more swingbeat Jackswing Mix (117¾bpm), jerkily hollow Aluh Mix (120bpm), and tinkling instrumental Krazzee Mix (120bpm) versions.
L.L. COOL J ‘Illegal Search (Keep On Searchin’ Mix)?’ (111¼bpm) (US Def Jam recordings 44 73147)
This drily funky “gotta gotta gotta keep on searchin'” prodded jiggler, with a more narrative rolling different Pre-Trial Hearing Mix, has proved in fact rather hotter than the A-side’s Gene Chandler ‘Get Down’ and Dennis Coffey ‘Ride Sally Ride’ beats backed ‘Jingling Baby (Remixed And Still Jingling)‘ (111¼bpm) and LP Version (109½bpm), reviewed last week.
CORPORATION OF ONE ‘Vanessa Del Rio’/’Tomorrow Will Be A Better Day’ (Graeme Park)
THE SHE PROJECT ‘Technofusion’ LP (Graeme Park)
DOOM ‘Shake Your Body Down’ (Graeme Park)
MOTHER TONGUE ‘Message Of Love’ (Graeme Park)
PRESSURE DROP ‘Feeling Good (Touch 1/2/3’ (Graeme Park)
K.TRONICS ENSEMBLE featuring Double J. Flash ‘House Of Calypso (Club Mix)’ (119½bpm) (CityBeat CBE 1246)
Strangely titled as far from calypso, this Kekkotronics offshoot’s jerkily spurting nervy Italo house instrumental features Philly Soul style Seventies disco strings and some brief piano breaks, with an occasionally organ doodled more percussively pattering ‘Calypso Of House‘ Dub Mix (119¾bpm).
SOFT HOUSE COMPANY ‘What You Need …’ (120bpm) (Italian IRMA casadiprimordine ICP 006)
‘Going Back To My Roots’-type piano and other familiar strains adapting stuttery Italo house tripper, co-produced by Kekkotronics, flipped by the title continuing bassier and possibly better scuttling instrumental ‘… A Little Piano‘ (121¾bpm).
Frankie ‘Bones’ presents BONESBREAKS volume 4 ‘More Filthy, Dirty Breaks For DJs’ (US Breaking Bones Records BBR-1000)
Another instalment of familiar and maybe not so familiar break beats built basic tracks, the 808 State-ish ‘A State Of Panic’ (121¼bpm) possibly getting most initial attention, all being around this tempo with ‘Energy Breakdown 1‘, ‘Another Dimension‘, ‘The Orchestra‘, ‘Strings Of Death‘, ‘Let’s Bass It‘ (121¼bpm), ‘Playing With My Organ‘ (121½bpm), ‘Don’t Hold Back‘, ‘Rise Up (Freestyle)‘ (121bpm), ‘Dance To The Music‘ (120bpm).
THE RHYTHM MASTERS with Ray Laurie ‘Our Ultimate Groove Trax – Volume Two’ (US Underworld Records AP 139)
Another Frankie ‘Bones’ co-produced similar sec of basic beats, with ‘Welcome To Ray’s House’, ‘Wanna Break Me?‘, ‘Feel The Groove‘, ‘The Horizon Jam‘ (120¾bpm, the latter accelerating rapidly at the end), ‘Nasty Freestyle’, ‘Hip House Lift Off’, ‘Feet Don’t Fail Me’, ‘We Can Dance‘, ‘Dum Dum Breakdown‘, ‘Acid 10 A.M.‘ (121bpm), ‘One Night In The Bronx’ (101½bpm). Why, with the exception of this last tugging slow break, all the tracks on both these sets are at such a similar speed is unclear, as they are otherwise unrelated.
STERLING VOID featuring Paris Brightledge ‘Set Me Free (Club Mix)’ (120¾bpm) (D.J. International Records 655522 6, via CBS)
Smokey Robinson-ishly sung, though with some (had it been him) uncharacteristic guttural inflections, pleasant floatingly tuneful repetitive brisk canterer in Music (121 bpm), Julian ‘Jumpin’ and Radio Mixes (121½bpm) too, a separate 12-inch (655522 8) coupling the Club and Radio Mixes with the ‘Eve Of The War’-ishly chording light bubbly ‘Do You Wanna Dance‘ (121¾bpm) and falsetto moaned pulsing ‘Loving You‘ (119¾bpm).
PRIMAL SCREAM ‘Loaded’ (91bpm) (Creation Records CRE 070T, via Rough Trade)
Interesting rock ‘n’ roll era soundtrack “We want to be free, to do what we want to do, and we want to get loaded, and we wanna have a good time” dialogue started and punctuated, slow tugging percussion, bass, brass, wah-wah and fiddle woven slinky dense instrumental swayer with a Deep Southern Stax-cum-Country flavour, not a sure fire floor filler but worth finding (on a limited single-sider) if you played Depth Charge, for instance.
CENTREFIELD ASSIGNMENT ‘Mi Casa’ (Graeme Park)
LOCO MIA ‘Loco Mia (The Danny Rampling Remix)’ (121¾bpm) (Parlophone 12R 6237)
Raul Orellana-type by now rather routine grand piano jangled frisky instrumental churner, far more fluid in Danny Rampling’s totally revamped UK version than in the flip’s Falco-ish guy intoned thumpingly chugging Original Mix (115½bpm), a Spanish chart topping Euro hit from last year.
The DMC UK mixing championships are well under way with nearly half of the preliminary heats completed. All the regional contests have been fiercely contested as usual, though at this stage no clear challenger has emerged to threaten the reigning UK and World Champion Cutmaster Swift who has decided to defend his title at Wembley in March. The top two contestants from each heat win places in the regional finals. DJs through so far include The Scratch Professor, DJ Business, DJ Bunjy, DJ Butterfingers, The Edge, DJ Prime Cuts, DJ Random, DJ Demo, DJ Mink, DJ Fast T, DJ B Bad and DJ Lars. The remaining heats will take place at Manchester Hacienda (January 23), Newcastle Walkers (24), Bristol Papillon (29), Birmingham XL’s (30), Sheffield Isabella’s (31), Romford Hollywood (February 5), N. Ireland Traks (7). The regional finals will take place in February at Manchester Hacienda (12), Blackpool’s The Palace (14), London Camden Palace (19), and Chippenham Goldiggers (20), with the UK final scheduled for the London Hippodrome on March 1 and the World Championships, which previously have been held at the Royal Albert Hall, are now to take place at Wembley Arena on March 20.
