BEATS & PIECES

NEW YORK City’s ‘Dixie Drifter’ soul DJ, Frankie Crocker is currently guesting with Tim Westwood on London’s Capital FM broadcasting between 9pm-1am all this week until Friday in a live simulcast heard at the same time in New York (only there, of course, it’s 4-8pm, his usual slot) on WBLS — although he’s likely to be playing Soul II Soul-type British black sounds to intrigue his audience back home, it will be a chance for those here who have yet to experience American black radio to hear one of its leading and most legendary practitioners . . . Tim Raidl and ‘Evil’ Eddie Richards have revived the Soul On Sound cassette tape aural magazine idea by launching the limited 1,000 copy mail order only Pure (House), the C90 format featuring each month an exclusively recorded UK mixing DJ on one side, flipped by interviews with not only that DJ but also a well known DJ/producer from abroad, a selected record store’s Top 10 sales countdown, plus new music by unsigned talent: costing £6 (from 68 Sunningdale, Round Green, Luton, Bedfordshire, subscription discount details on 0908-647632), issue one has Paul ‘Trouble Those Decks’ Anderson as guest mixer, an interview with Todd Terry, a Vinyl Zone chart plus tracks by Irresistible Force, while future issues will include Eddie Richards, Judge Jules, Paul Oakenfold, Kid Batchelor as mixers plus Frankie ‘Bones’, Louie Vega, Ralphi Rosario, Kevin Saunderson as interviewees . . . Mel Appleby’s tragic death aged 23 from cancer last week has caused Supreme Records to withdraw Alan Coulthard’s previously mentioned ltalo House Remix of Mel & Kim’s ‘Showing Out’ and hits medleying ‘The Mel & Kim 1990 Mega-Mix’, originally scheduled for release next Monday . . . ‘Control Yourself Cousin‘, the white labelled hot megamix by Homeboy (who turns out to be ‘EastEnder’ Rob Keen), is at last due fully next week on CT Records (the newly abbreviated name of Cheque This Records, where Chris Checkley and Louise Chantrell are building a DJ mailing list on 01-229 7329), with a cleaned up more vocal remix to follow possibly on a major label . . . Suffolk DJ Mark Summers’ recent homemade ‘Melt Your Body‘ only ever had a limited UK release but has resurfaced as a US import, on Hillbilly House Records, in three mixes now . . . London based swingbeaters Way To Go, led by Baby Rico, have signed direct to Sire in the States and are currently recording an album featuring guests George Benson, Betty Boo, and hopefully Grover Washington Jr — way to go, indeed! . . . 808 State’s upcoming four-track ‘The Extended Pleasures Of Dance’ EP has been preceded on promo by just its jerkily churning ‘Cobra Bora (Call The Cops Mix)‘ (119¾bpm) and rambling slow jittery ‘Ancodia (Taters Deep Nit Funky Beat Mix)‘ (106¼bpm) . . . Chester based mobile DJ Del Farmer heads (with wife Michele as PR officer, on 0244-320421) a brand new breakaway Chester, Cheshire & North Wales DJ Association open to mobile, club and radio jocks, potential members being welcomed to the lunchtime meetings on the first Sunday of every month (so one’s just coming up) at the Bull And Stirrup pub in Chester’s Watergate Street — the following, March 4, meeting will be a disco jumble sale, all non-member DJs being invited to bring and buy, at the larger Southview Community Centre . . . Outer Limits start a weekly Juice hip hop night presented by Sindecut this Thursday (1) at Bletchley’s Rayzels . . . Thursday also sees Ray Lock start a new house night at Hoofers, in London Road on Kingston Hill, with guest DJ Robert Fung followed over the next two weeks by Carl Cox and Trevor Fung — Ray alone houses Purley’s Temptations Friday and Sutton Civic Centre’s Fu-Fu’s Saturday, both switched-on wine bars . . . Shut Up And Dance star at Brixton Fridge’s 2pm-midnight Eureka II alldayer this Sunday (4) . . . Clubnet have sent their mailing list DJs a pair of ‘Walk On The Wild Side’ slipmats to help plug Jamie J Morgan . . . Tyneside’s Nigel Atkinson (091-5657774) is desperate for a 12-inch of Deniece Williams ‘Heaven In Your Eyes‘ (CBS) from 1984 . . . Belfast’s informative ‘Bird Man’, Mark One (who sells dance trax at The Gramophone Shop opposite City Hall and spins them Fri/Saturday at Robinsons Bar), reckons the birds twittering on Sueno Latino’s new ‘Luxuria‘ this time sound more like oystercatchers, the large black and white waders to be found at the seaside (not to be confused with seagulls!) . . . IT’S SUCH A GOOD VIBRATION!


HOT VINYL
Reviewed by James Hamilton, Graeme Park and Judge Jules

BLACK BOX ‘I Don’t Know Anybody Else’ (121bpm) (Italian Groove Groove Melody GGM 8909)
The hottest Italian team on vinyl follow the UK’s biggest selling single of 1989 with another wailing and jangling solid though perhaps less instant punchy chugger, featuring what seems like an original vocal in bassier Melody Mix and sharper House Club versions.

M.B.G. ‘This Is Paradise’ (Graeme Park)

TASHAN ‘Blackman’ (Club Mix) (Graeme Park)

AQUA MARINA ‘Rhythm Radio’ (Graeme Park)

JOSE CHEENA ‘Jose’s Party Breakdown’ (Graeme Park)

THE DAWN ‘The Dawn’ (Graeme Park)

MONDEÉ OLIVER ‘Stay Close’ (125¾bpm) (Fourth & Broadway 12 BRW 162)
In a perfect modern setting for her jazz pedigree (which includes stints with Roy Ayers, Bobbi Humphries and Donald Byrd, amongst others), Mondeé soothingly doodles through this Larry ‘Mr Fingers’ Heard mixed gentle pulsing fusion of Seventies jazz-funk and Nineties deep/ambient house, in the same four mixes that broke big on slightly faster import.

808 STATE ‘Ancodia/Cobra Bora’ (Judge Jules)

TONY SCOTT ‘The Chief’ (LP) (Judge Jules)

LIEUTENANT STITCHIE ‘Dress To Impress’ (Judge Jules)

ONE WORD (Featuring Yvette) ‘We’ve Gotta Find Love’ (Judge Jules)

DE DE O’NEAL ‘Vulnerable’ (Judge Jules)

TOO POETIC ‘Poetical Terror’ (Judge Jules)

BIG SCORE (Featuring Darryl Pandy) ‘Trust Gone Wild’ (Judge Jules)

OLIMAX & DJ SHAPPS ‘Last Night A DJ Saved My Life’ (Judge Jules)

JACKIE & JACKIE ‘Amor Latino’ (Judge Jules)

LISA STANSFIELD ‘Live Together (New Version)’ (110¾bpm) (Arista 612 914)
Another sultry intro followed by a slightly funkier, lush Philly strings backed and somewhat Marvin Gaye flavoured gorgeous soul swayer, swimming with class in the Blue Zone mixed A-side or stripped right down to bare beats and scratches in Massive Attack’s slower dubwise Big Beat Mix (100¾bpm), with the chunky cantering ‘Sing It‘ (118bpm) too, while also getting renewed sales on import is

‘All Around The World (American Club Remix)’ (104bpm) (US Arista ADI-9929)
The UK chart-topping classic’s original Long Version (101¼bpm) and the similar jogging ‘Affection’ (100bpm) freshly coupled with, the big plus that’s selling it again, this more sparsely burbling sinuous remix augmented by different beats by none other than DJ Mark The 45 King, dropping a dubwise breakdown after the vocal’s briefly pausing false finish.

PRINCESS IVORI ‘Wanted’ (105¼bpm) (Supreme Records CLUB PROMO 2)
Poised to explode while only on single-sided UK promo ahead even, it seems, of her Popular Records import pressing, MC Shan’s unhurriedly chatting sly sister has adapted the Honey Cone’s 1971 US classic ‘Want Ads’ to make this “wanted, young men, single and free” chorused irresistible jiggler, catchy as hell and all over radio in London already.

SEDUCTION ‘Heartbeat (The Clivilles & Cole Club Mix)’ (99¾bpm) (US Vendetta Records VE-7034)
Clivilles & Cole created terrific buoyant rolling beefy bass driven powerful Soul II Soul-ish jogger by wailing April, Idalis and Michelle, likely to follow Mantronix up the chart now that this is the formula which, thankfully, seems to be bringing back soul in 1990, coupled with its funkily drummed The Clivilles & Cole Dub Mix (100bpm) plus the ‘Free Your Body (It’s Time To Get Hip House)‘ (120¾bpm) woven with cheeky samples.

ELECTRIBE 101 ‘Talking With Myself (Frankie Knuckles Mix)’ (113½bpm) (Mercury HIP 3)
Promoed well ahead of reissue, this haunting world weary girl moaned trend setter, punctuated with ‘Mission Impossible’, is now nearly a year old and is likely this time to soar in its new languid pattering remix.

OUT OF THE ORDINARY ‘Play It Again (The Los Ninos Mix)’ (122½bpm) (German Abfahrt ZYX 6199R-12)
First about last summer before this stronger remix surfaced in the autumn, this corny German ditty introed beefy creation features recent hit grooves (‘French Kiss’, ‘Ride On Time’ and many more like that) masterminded by Frankfurt DJ Torsten Fenslau and Jens Zimmermann. It’s flipped by a different quietly started then more electronic twittered “Why Don’t You Try This Side” Mix (126¾bpm), taking off now on import but boosted by a single-sided UK promo of just (here intro-less) The Los Ninos Mix (123bpm) (Supreme Records CLUB PROMO 1)

YOUNG M.C. ‘Principal’s Office (12-inch Version)’ (95¼bpm) (Delicious Vinyl 12 BRW 161)
London born Young MC wrote Tone Loc’s ‘Wild Thing’ and ‘Funky Cold Medina’ (the two biggest selling raps ever thanks to their rock content), and now he storms the club chart himself cataloguing in his own chatting style the relatively innocent misdemeanours that got him in trouble at school, to a lazily rolling piano break beat with Instrumental, Bonus Beats, and a slightly denser Impact Remix too.

FLOWMASTERS ‘Let It Take Control (Judge Jules Remix)’ (122¼bpm) (XL Recordings XLT-7)
Singled out from Frankie ‘Bones’ & Tommy Musto’s ‘Energy Dawn’ EP for further remixes, this stuttery title line washed instrumental galloper has a Radio Version and percussive Bass Beats too, plus the yowling guitar note punctuated and tubular bells chimed title rapping hip house-ish ‘House The Crowd (Freestyle Mix)‘ (120bpm).

SHABAZZ ‘Glad You’re In My Life’ (103bpm) (US RCA 9148-1-RD)
The Eric ‘Vietnam’ Sadler co-produced guys who previously rapped and sang ‘Respect’ return with an excellent properly soulful jogging mellow swayer in three mixes, flipped by the amusingly worded P’funk ‘Where’s Your Head (Between Your Shoulders Or Between Your Legs?)‘ (105bpm) in two mixes.

D.J. RENEGADE & M.C. MINT ‘It’s My Thing (Remix)’ (121½bpm) (Body Rock 12BRX 5, via Jet Star)
Remixed for the UK by the guys with Peter Hinds (three further mixes on the white label flip), this tough though brightly jiggling gruff rap continuously scratches in a girl wailed title line that might be but doesn’t really sound like Marva Whitney — any other ideas?

BEN MAYS ‘X-Rated (Club Mix)’ (125bpm) (Desire WANTX 21, via Pacific)
Breezy ‘French Kiss’ inspired bounder co-produced by Chris ‘Bam Bam’ Westbrook with a gasping and sighing girl who continually asks “do you ever fantasize”, with husky muttering Ben getting more of a look in on the flip’s sparse Jungle Mix (Dub Instrumental too).

LAST FEW DAYS ‘Kicks’ (131bpm) (fontana LFD 122)
Rather jaunty good washing machine gurgled and piano jangled frisky acidic flier, instrumental with punctuating comments or totally instrumental in its bassily resonant Sub Mix and drier Dungeon Mix, hot already at raves. It was promoed as just LFD! on otherwise info-less white label.

QUADROPHENIA ‘Paradise’ (117¾bpm) (Italian New Age AGE 301)
Sueno Latino-type (including some warbling birds) lovely lush swaying ambient pulser created by Severo Lombardoni with Chris Lynn’s exquisite rasping Gato Barbieri-ish sax and Marta Ferez’s muttered sweet nothings, in a more beefy trotting Jam Beat Version too.

THE BRAT PACK ‘You’re The Only Woman (The Cole/Clivilles Club Mix)’ (121¾bpm) (US Vendetta Records VE-7027)
Distinctive choppy phrased and harmonised striding slick house-ish bounder remixed by Clivilles & Cole, with whooshing jetstream effects also in its sturdy wriggling The Club Club Mix (sic) and more skittery The Dum-Dum Mix instrumentals, while for contrast there are a slower stark jittery The Jack Swing Mix (106¾bpm) and ‘Din Daa Daa’-type Bonus Beats (123¾bpm).

SIR JAMES ‘Special’ (US Strictly Rhythm SR 1203)
Refreshingly old fashioned soulfully nagged, piano jangled and synth twittered wriggly cantering New York house, in Club and Pumped-Up Mixes (121½bpm), Piano Dub (120½bpm), Trance Mix (121bpm) and Radio Edit (120bpm).

J.T COMPANY ‘Don’t Deal With Us (Club Version)’ (122½bpm) (Italian JT Company Rec. JTCR 0017)
About since November, this Joe T. Vannelli co-created moodily starting then brightly typical jangling and muttering good Italo house racer has four other differently treated mixes too.

ROYALLE DELITE ‘(I’ll Be A) Freak For You (FON Force Remix)’ (110bpm) (Supreme Records SUPET 157)
1984’s monster underground London soul sound newly remixed, this seductive girl nagged rolling stroller is flipped by not only its Dub (109¼bpm) but also for added value the original 1977 recorded, subsequently much imitated (let alone sampled), “it’s not over” repeating classic girl group wailed jerkily surging, shuffling and galloping FIRST CHOICE ‘Let No Man Put Asunder’ (120-117¾-122v bpm).

THE D.O.C. ‘No One Can Do It Better’ (Ruthless Records/Atlantic SAM 623)
Ostensibly a promo but selling in its own right if you can find it, this seven track sampler plugging the NWA associated rapper’s album of the same name has the previously charted fast talking jittery swirling ‘Portrait Of A Master Piece’ (122¼-122bpm), wordily jogging title track and its Instrumental (94¼bpm), rolling ‘It’s Funky Enough‘ and Instrumental (90¼bpm), slow declamatory ‘The DOC And The Doctor‘ (81¾bpm) and its Noisy Mix (81bpm).

D.M.S. ‘And The Beat Goes On’ (123bpm) (US Cutting Records CR-233)
Todd Terry created, ‘Little’ Louie Vega remixed, ‘French Kiss’-ishly driven (though constantly tempoed) friskily jolting instrumental studded with familiar samples — well, it would be, wouldn’t it? — in four mixes.

BY ALL MEANS ‘Let’s Get It On (Club Mix)’ (88bpm) (Fourth & Broadway 12 BRW 154)
Slinkily slow soulful tribute to the classic song’s originator, Marvin Gaye, remixed by Frankie Knuckles with similar inflections though more lushly harmonised support (Instrumental and Dub Mix too).

MAZE featuring Frankie Beverly ‘Silky Soul (Extended Version)’ (93bpm) (Warner Bros W2738T)
Similarly a Marvin Gaye tribute, this lovely gentle weaving swayer recreates the crowd chatter atmosphere of his ‘What’s Going On’ style without being one of his own songs (not noticeably much different Dance Mix too).

PRECINCT 13 ‘Listen To Your Heartbeat (Club Mix)’ (122½bpm) (Living Beat Records SMASH 8)
Revealed now to be the London creation of DJ Steve Proctor all along, rather than a supposedly genuine Italian Lombardoni recording as originally circulated, the robotically intoned title line repeating Italo house chugger (with many familiar quotes) is best in this mix but has thrashing Matrix Mix, Sueno Latino-ish Universe Mix (114bpm) and plodding House Mix (117¼bpm) variations too.

ROBYN ‘Searching’ (98½bpm) (Soultown SOUL 004)
Sweet soulful girls cooed weaving sultry jogger created by J.J. Halliday obviously inspired by Lisa Stansfield, though it’s more street soul in its structure, flipped by a Piano Mix.

BABY FORD ‘Beach Bump (Full Version)’ (122¼bpm) (Rhythm King 12 BFORD 6)
Electro throbbed swirling acidic jitterer with bursts of pop vocal and many episodic breaks, flipped by its more Italo-like stuttery jangling Beachbum’s Version and the unrelated good frisky striding washing machine gurgled ‘Wigan‘ (125bpm), while also on a separate limited edition are the Komix remixed non-acidic The Club Mixes (Rhythm King R12 BFORD 6) with a “voulez, voulez, voulez-vous toucher ce soir?” pop vocal emphasising gently loping US Bumpy Club Mix, stuttery then synthed unhurriedly cantering instrumental Life’s A Beach, and jangling stuttery Italo-style Disco Makes My Body Bump.

PIANO FANTASIA ‘Song For Denise (Audiophile Dance Mix)’ (102¾bpm) (BCM Records BCM 378 X)
Schmaltzily attractive Imagination ‘Body Talk’-type piano tinkled and synthetic strings swirled chunky lurching instrumental jogger, with slightly slower 7-inch and Dub Mix Versions (102¼bpm).


POP DANCE

YELL! ‘Instant Replay (The Rebound Club Mix)’ (128bpm) (Fanfare Records 12FAN 22), hi-hat hissed and sax squealed simple enthusiastic remake of Dan Hartman’s 1978 disco classic, originally due in November but much mixed about on promo until this final Pete Hammond remix had got it right;

D.J. ANDY SHAFTE Woohlambada! (Don’t Stop Dance When We Cut The Drum Mix)’ (124¾-125bpm) (Loco Records LOCO 999, via 01-490 1210), Italo flavoured ‘Lambada’ goes hip house-type lighthearted fun;

UB40 ‘Here I Am (Come And Take Me) (Extended Mix)’ (96bpm) (DEP International DEP 34-12), solidly workmanlike old fashioned reggae revival of Al Green’s 1973 US hit;

SAVUKA ‘Cruel, Crazy, Beautiful World (The Beautiful Mix)’ (115½bpm) (EMI 12EMX 120), Ben Chapman remixed afro flavoured chugger by Johnny Clegg’s apartheid busting South African group, with a good The Cruel Instrumental, much more mellow than the brassy Radio Version that’s likely to be more widely heard;

NITZER EBB ‘Lightning Man (The Industry vs. The Ebb Mix)’ (119½bpm) (Mute 12 MUTE 106), walking beefy bass pushed strider with bursts of raucous vocal and jangling piano, coupled by a totally different percussive fierce instrumental Renegade Soundwave Mix;

DEPECHE MODE ‘Enjoy The Silence (Bass Line)’ (113¼bpm) (Mute 12 BONG 18), Francois Kevorkian mixed disjointed sparse groove, coupled by Daniel Miller’s more smoothly thumping less radical Ricki Tik Tik Mix (112½bpm) and similarly guitar chimed mournful vocal 7-inch version, due next week (with four more remixes to follow on a limited 12);

KEVIN PAIGE ‘Don’t Shut Me Out (Dance Mix)’ (105bpm) Chrysalis CHS 12 3389), Bruce Forest & Frank Heller remixed tentatively started then jerky ponderous production-heavy US pop-rock hit.

One thought on “February 3, 1990: Black Box, Mondeé Oliver, Lisa Stansfield, Princess Ivori, Seduction”

  1. Mel Appleby’s death was such a tragic event along with sister Kim she lit up the pop charts with so much promise. Lisa Stansfield promised so much, a truly amazing vocalist in the pop/r&b/jazz style everyone expected her to go global achieve stellar success. It didn’t quite work out that way her mainstream career burned bright all too briefly before taking a more lower profile path.
