BEATS & PIECES
It’s interesting to note that the “Soul II Soul effect” is bringing dance tempos back down to such an extent that in The Club Chart’s Top 20 last week there were 12 hits all slower than 115bpm, most of them (and all the biggest ones) a lot slower . . . Paul Oakenfold has done a legal remix of the old Red Box ‘Enjoy’ for East West release, coupled by the currently bootlegged original B-side which has been so much in demand . . . Jonathan Richardson and Terry Farley of Boys’ Own have formed P.O.P. Promotions (standing for ‘Pieces Of Plastic’ — like it!), and are topping up their DJ mailing list at 249/251 Kensal Road, London W10 5DG (01-968 8459) . . . Andrew Wood has just sold his successful independent Power Promotions (operating one of the more effective mailing lists) to assume a corporate role instead, taking over from Nigel Webb running club promotions for BMG (which includes RCA, Arista and Motown) . . . Edinburgh’s Bill Grainger points out that, while he may be busy with Big Fun, he is still running his own First Class promotion service for Scottish and Northern Ireland DJs, currently mailing PWL Records product amongst others . . . Andrew ‘Komix’ Komis is managed only outside North America by Best Beat Music . . . Stockport’s new (though off air for six years, previously pirate) incremental radio station KFM 104.9FM as part of its recent launch celebrations relayed live a normal night’s jollifications from Offerton’s Hamiltons, whose DJ Tim Howard now co-hosts the station’s Saturday 3-6pm dance show . . . Mike Pickering makes his third trip to Cork this Thursday (8), guesting at Greg D’s regular Sweat night in Sir Henry’s . . . Nigel Thomas’s monthly modern Sounds Of Soul night should be at Nantwich’s Cheshire Cat this Thursday, too . . . Ubiquity II at Brighton’s Zap Club next Wednesday (14) offers individualists both Push and Choice Exact playing live funk, a PA by local hero Norman Cook’s Beats International, DJs Shem ‘Streets Ahead’ — guess where half Record Mirror’s staff are likely to be that night! . . . Gee St Records have started a weekly Saturday club night at the City Of London’s Turnmills, conveniently just down the Clerkenwell Road from their HQ in Gee Street (which really exists!) . . . Blackburn’s DJ IMC (Ian McIntyre) has been jocking in Europe but is back in the groove at Rochdale’s Fatsoe’s Fridays and Middleton’s Hippo’s Saturdays . . . DJ Miller (The Killer) — real name Kevin —has split from Ipswich’s Hoofers to start an upfront and underground Saturday at Woodbridge’s The Slam (possibly undergoing a name change), with jazz and rare groove Sundays . . . Rusty Egan’s latest invitation club night is Gold on Fridays at Kensington’s The Park, with DJs Noel Watson and Carl Cox plus guests . . . Chris Hill thought he had retired from DJing (he’s busy enough as a partner in the Ensign label on which Sinead O’Connor is currently so hot) but, following his successful return (about every third Saturday) to his legendary Canvey Goldmine haunt of the Seventies, soon starts also on Tuesdays at Dartford’s Zen (as Flicks has become) and on Thursdays at Ealing’s Broadway Boulevard, playing left field soul ancient and modern . . . New York’s Dave Piccioni plus other jocks like Kid Batchelor, DJ Tee and Keith Franklin, along with further guests and MCs, create Confusion:Bass 9T Sundays at London Shaftesbury Avenue’s Shaftesbury’s . . . Tony Christian, assistant head DJ, wants to get the message through to the locals that Croydon’s previously middle of the road Cinatra’s (sic) has woken up to the dance groove of the Nineties! . . . Dr. Baker ‘Kaos’ (Danish Coma Records COMA 127 001), Kenneth Baker’s 1988-style cut-up reviewed last week, is indeed in six sometimes messily edited mixes, confusingly only differentiated by (mostly quite accurate) timing-like numbers, the HIP-Side having 5:36 (126¾-127bpm), 4:18 and (actually a much shorter 3:26!) 5:12 (127-126¾bpm), the HOT-Side having 5:02 (118¼-118½bpm), 5:46 and its own (accurate!) 5:12 (128bpm) . . . Casa Nero’s commercial pressing will be flipped by a more tightly remixed ‘Ain’t No Acid in This House’ . . . Habit ‘Fly Like An Eagle’, recently reviewed off white label, turns out to be remixed by Bruce Forest & Robin Hancock . . . DJ Kid Smurf tips that Depth Charge ‘Bounty Killers’ played at 45rpm and vari-speeded down on an SL 1200 to run at between -1 and -3 becomes an “excellent hardcore hiphouse techno track” . . . KICKIN’!
Reviewed by James Hamilton and Paul Oakenfold
JUNGLE BROTHERS ‘What “U” Waitin’ “4”? (Jungle Fever Mix)’ (109bpm) (Eternal W9865T, via WEA)
Waiting to explode when out fully next week, this jauntily chugging rap is now driven in CJ Mackintosh’s killer remix by a beefy combination of People’s Choice ‘Do It Any Way You Wanna’ beat and Salsoul Orchestra ‘Ooh I Love It’ strings and brass, while his all new more, percussively shuffling C. Jungle, C. Jungle (108¾bpm) — a wordplay on his initials — ends with some Maceo Parker ‘Soul Power’ sax, and Tony Humphries’ hollow booming Love Ride And Orchestra Mix (109¾bpm) joins the JBs’ own bumpily tapping ‘J. Beez Comin’ Through (Remix)‘ (102½bpm) on the flip.
MC B. featuring DAISY DEE ‘This Beat Is Technotronic (Uptown Mix)’ (124½bpm) (Big One VVBIG 20)
Just what the world was waiting for, a German carbon copy of the Technotronic sound! At least they have the honesty to admit, repeatedly, that that’s what it is in the title line of this Holland based (and apparently Paris Grey discovered) 19 years old American/Brazilian girl’s Ya Kid K-type word spitting simple galloper, flipped by its Rebel MC punctuated High Level Mix and the Portuguese accented but this time Italian house copying magpie type ‘Musquash‘ (124bpm).
BOBBY KONDERS’ HOUSE RHYTHMS ‘The Poem’ (120bpm) (US Nugroove NG 038)
Continuing the current New York trend for EP-type multi-track 12-inchers (this one having actual toons, though), Bobby Konders’ Peter Daou keyboarded instrumental six-tracker is hottest for this Benjamin Zephaniah black poetry introed then jazzily trilling loper, but has also the electronically fluttering ambient African chanting ‘Massai Women‘ and its more twittery ‘Dub Massai Style (Mark’s Mix)‘ (119¾bpm), the title line repeating urgent ‘Let There Be House‘ (124bpm), bassily striding ‘Version‘ (120bpm), and twittery twizzling ‘Nervous Acid‘ (119½bpm).
DEE’ MOE ‘One Step At A Time (Vocal Mix)’ (98¾bpm) (Mercury MERX 318)
Bumpily jiggling Soul II Soul-ish beats catchily build through this sweetly wailing girl cooed bouncy little jogger, stronger the longer it’s on so that it ends up well nigh irresistible in this Nomad Soul remix (what relation might he be to Damon Rochefort?), flipped by its more drily percussive Instrumental Mix and the breathily swaying ‘You Can’t Win My Love’ (101¼bpm). A potential monster, due fully next week!
A WAY OF LIFE ‘Trippin’ On Your Love’ (118bpm) (Eternal YZ464T)
Huskily agonised by a Terence Trent D’Arby-ish guy who combines flamenco, gospel and scat inflections, this tempoless organ started then Spanish guitar jangled smoothly thumping very classy Balearic loper already somehow seems familiar, the sort of thing that Paul Oakenfold or Nicky Holloway might dream up although in fact the brainchild of veteran soul DJ Chris Brown, with Spanish guitar right from the start of the flip’s accelerating instrumental Subliminal Club Mix (118½-121½bpm), plus the rumbling ‘V for Victory’ introed similarly instrumental ‘Distant Thunder‘ (95bpm). Out in a fortnight, should be big!
D-MOB featuring Cathy Dennis ‘That’s The Way Of The World (Essential Beat Mix)’ (122-121¾bpm) (ffrr FX132)
Dancin’ Danny D’s next chart assault is a good sturdy bassline and schlurping ‘pshta pshta’ hi-hat driven attractive wriggly trotter, more convincingly wailed this time by plaintive Cathy with his own background declamatory comments breaking down into a percussive groove that’s carried through the promo flip’s Instrumental D Beats and Acappella (all 121¾bpm).
PRINCESS IVORI ‘Wanted (Mantronix Remix)’ (105bpm) (Supreme Records SUPET 163)
Much sought on equally scarce promo and original old US Popular Records pressings before at last now being fully available here, this Honey Cone ‘Want Ads’ inspired wordy sly rap by MC Shan’s sister has been A-sided in the brassily jittering Mantronix remix but is nevertheless possibly easier to get into in the flip’s jiggly trotting N.Y. Twilight Mix (104½bpm) and Club It 90 Version (105bpm), both a lot clearer and catchier — and what made it so hot to begin with!
PROFESSOR GRIFF AND THE LAST ASIATIC DISCIPLES ‘Pawns In The Game’ (109bpm) (US Luke Skyywalker GR 131)
Public Enemy’s most controversial member with some militant new colleagues, reasonably rapping his viewpoint to rolling JB samples (Instrumental too), coupled by the equally good eponymously rapped ‘Last Asiatic Disciples‘ (108¼bpm) and Griff’s jerkily tugging ‘Love Thy Enemy‘ (108bpm).
JEFF REDD ‘A Quiet Storm’ (US Uptown Records MCA-42299)
Misleadingly titled to make one expect nothing but sultry late night listening, this either throatily rasping and moaning or else sweetly tender soulster’s good album actually ranges through various styles, including a snappily jiggling new jack swing treatment of Fatback’s ‘I Found Lovin’’ (109bpm) which inevitably is helping sell it, plus the Chubb Rock (and ‘Champ’) started nervily jittering ‘Come And Get Your Lovin’‘ (113½bpm), catchily rolling ‘I Like Your Love (I Like It)‘ (105¼bpm), Timmy Allen produced delicately swaying ‘Surrender‘ (86¾bpm), jazz-funkily jogging ‘What Goes Around, Comes Around‘ (91¼bpm), brittle jittery ‘In My House’ (106¾bpm), tumbling jiggly ‘Dance With Me’ (109½bpm), overwrought wailing ‘Giving My Love To You’ (79/39½bpm), romantic smoochy ‘Love High’ (77½/38¾bpm), and ponderously drifting ‘Brazilian Lady’ (75bpm).
YOUNG M.C. ‘I Come Off’ (95½bpm) (US Delicious Vinyl 0-96499)
Those M|A|R|R|S boys work their remix magic to help sell yet another record, Dave Dorrell & CJ Mackintosh’s totally different jazz-funkily jogging Southern Comfort Mix being far hotter than the otherwise Matt Dike & Michael Ross mixed drier wordily insistent rolling 12″ Version, 7″ Remix, LP Version and Instrumental.
DOUG LAZY ‘Doug Lazy Gettin’ Crazy’ (Atlantic 7567-82066-1)
An effective enough album for fans of the huskily drawling rapper’s unhurried hip house formula, well established by his previously 12-inched ‘Let It Roll’ (118½bpm) and ‘Let The Rhythm Pump’ (121¼bpm), best newies possibly being the ‘Get Up, Get Into It, Get Involved’ prodded simple acidic ‘Ahh Get It’ (121¾bpm), familiar JB-ishly jiggling ‘Can’t Hold Back (U No)‘ (115bpm), jauntily galloping ‘H.O.U.S.E.‘ (121½bpm), and (the ‘sleeper’ of the set?) Brick ‘Dazz’-based rolling funky ‘Go 2 Work‘ (106½bpm), others being the panting percussive ‘Funky Beat‘ (121bpm), routine ‘Can’t Get Enough‘ (121½bpm), pace changing pedestrianly scratched ‘Doug Lazy Gettin’ Crazy‘ (98½bpm) and jogging hip hop-ish ‘U Really Wanna‘ (103½bpm).
OLIMPIA ‘You Want My Love (Garage Mix)’ (114¼bpm) (Citizen Kane Records 12KANE1, via Pinnacle)
Already hot on Italian import, this rolling De La Soul ‘Say No Go’ rhythm driven and ‘Roots’-ish piano plonked Kariya ‘Let Me Love You For Tonight’ quoting jaunty chanter, flipped by a more talkative Radio Edit and alternative faster D. Version (115¾bpm), is out here fully in a fortnight though widely promoed now.
PANDELLA ‘Don’t Stop (Your Love) (Komix)’ (122¾-123bpm) (US New Jersey Sounds NJ 07631)
Andrew ‘Komix’ Komis produced typically simple synth chorded smoothly scurrying multi-tracked girl wailed canterer, flipped by its Dub and faster Radio (123½-124-123bpm) mixes, sure to appeal to Bigshot Records fans.
ADAMSKI ‘Killer’ (Paul Oakenfold)
PARADISE 10 featuring LESS STRESS ‘2 Much’ (116bpm) (W.A.U Recordings MWS 019T)
Ambient introed and outroed (with chirping cicadas instead of birds!), bright though clichéd Italo house-style samples woven bounder, in similar Out Of This World, Mad World, and Instrumental Mixes, created by S’Xpress keyboardist Brendan ‘Eternity’ Beal with DJs Less Stress and vocalist Lola G.
JAM JAM ‘Don’t Look Any Further (Club Mix)’ (100bpm) (Champion CHAMP 12-236)
Gradually growing hotter the longer it was on Italian Discomagic import and now out here, this straightforward Dennis Edwards remake benefits from a bouncily bumping Soul II Soul-ish beat but otherwise is remarkably close to the original, flipped by its Instrumental and trumpet brayed short ‘The Love I Lost’ variation (99¾bpm).
WRECKS-N-EFFECT ‘New Jack Swing’ (Motown ZT 43578)
The jumpy swingbeat rap reissued in Gene Griffin’s previously unavailable bass bumped and at times organ wheezed clopping Club Version and empty Percapella (110bpm), plus the old jauntily jiggling Single Version (107bpm) and 12″ Remix (109¾bpm) — which latter also recently coupled the Mtume ‘Juicy Fruit’ based slinkily groin-grinding rap ballad, ‘Juicy (12″ Version)‘ (92bpm) (Motown ZT 43296), with Radio Edit and lusher Love Juicy versions too.
NEUTRON 9000 ‘Cybersculpture’ (Paul Oakenfold)
MAUREEN WALSH ‘Don’t Hold Back’ (Paul Oakenfold)
KATE B ‘Free’ (Belgian Music Man MMI 8944)
Resonantly ambient without any added sound effects, this Sueno Latino-ish calmly crooned and piano plonked smoothly pulsing slick canterer could creep up a few trouser legs, being pleasant rather than blatant, with a slightly beefier seeming instrumental and the breathily whispered tunefully trotting ‘Recashed‘ (119½bpm), typically Continental.
PAUSE FOR THOUGHT! ‘You’re Gonna Get All My Love!’ (124¼bpm) (PWL Records PWLT 49)
Teasingly featured already on ‘The Hit Man And Her’ as having been “sent in” although actually produced at PWL (but not by SAW), this rapping and singing two guys/one girl Coventry trio trade lines in a breezily galloping variation on the Technotronic and Black Box styles (instrumental flip).
CRY SISCO ‘Magic Tonight’ (Paul Oakenfold)
THE CREEPS ‘Way Cool’ (Paul Oakenfold)
STARPOINT ‘I Want You – You Want Me’ (Paul Oakenfold)
VARIOUS ARTISTS ‘The Brits 1990 (Dance Medley) (Extended)’ (120½-129bpm) (RCA PT 43566), smoothly accelerating Mike Gray megamix of Double Trouble & The Rebel MC, A Guy Called Gerald, S’Xpress, Beatmasters, Ben Liebrand Remix, 808 State, D Mob, Edwin Starr and Cookie Crew classics, debuted during the Brits Awards to help the Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy charity;
SHOOTING PARTY ‘Let’s Hang On (Solid Gold Radio Mix)’ (131¼bpm) (Lisson Records DOLE Q15), very useful Pete Hammond produced still slow starting then breezily clomping accurate recreation of the Four Seasons’ 1965 falsetto classic (with some sarcastically built-in “solid gold” jingles!);
PARTNERS RIME SYNDICATE ’54-46, That’s My Number (Remix)’ (Hysteria Records HYSTRX 100, via EMI/Supertrack), remixed leaping revival of the Maytals’ enduringly catchy 1968 ska classic, in ultra sprightly sk’ouse Skadown (126½bpm) and less infectious sk’acid DMTT (127bpm) Mixes;
CLIFF RICHARD ‘Stronger Than That (Extended Version)’ (120bpm) (EMI 12EM 129), in which Cliff goes disco, this “oh-whoa oh-ooh” prodded pleasant little chugger being given hip house trappings by remixer Phil Harding (and hip hop dancers in the video to Alan Tarney’s more urgent seven-inch mix!);
BRIAN SPENCE ‘Travellin’ Man (Reservation Mix)’ (125¼bpm) (Chrysalis CHS 12 3479), Phil Harding & Ian Curnow remixed unlikely amalgam of cantering hip house beats, ambient effects, Shadows-type guitar and cowboy flavoured pop lyrics, not surprisingly attracting possibly more attention for its instrumentals;
LAID BACK ‘Bakerman (Extended Remix)’ (120½bpm) (Arista 612 356), Robbie Robertson-ish muttering slinky choogler like Lou Reed backed by early Creedence Clearwater Revival, big in Europe;
BIG FUN ‘Handful Of Promises’ (124bpm) (Jive JIVE T 243), dated hip house clichés started but then whinneyingly harmonised lush mushy canterer, far from their best;
KAKKO ‘We Should Be Dancing (Jigsaw 12″ Mix)’ (124¼bpm) (CBS 655710 6), Stock Aitken Waterman produced, Harding & Curnow mixed mindless monotonous Euro-type jiggly canterer by a Japanese girl;
5 STAR ‘Treat Me Like A Lady (Extended Version)’ (105¾bpm) (Epic/Tent FIVE T1), Paula Abdul-ish empty jitterer, all surface production gloss and snappily edited video syncopation — a pity, as the funkily rolling bassline promises more.
