BEATS & PIECES
BEATS INTERNATIONAL is only the commercial tip of the iceberg, all the signs are pointing (certainly in London, no doubt influenced by Bristol) towards an upsurge of interest in real reggae riddims, a logical progression for the Soul II Soul groove — and that indeed appears to be their own next direction! . . . Big Boss Groove, abbreviated for convenience to BBG, are releasing their white labelled ‘Sn/appiness‘ commercially soon via Polydor . . . Tim Raidl has set up the Chill Records label specifically for ‘raw underground’ UK house productions, and is looking for a few acts to complete his roster at Mix Connection & BritMix UK, 68 Sunningdale, Round Green, Luton LU2 7TE (0582 412460) . . . Paul Gotel’s new additions to Power Promotions’ existing DJ mailing list service are Power Press, handling dance music press promotion, and The Power Pool, a DJs’ record pool to be run by Frank Perkins, while other expansions to come include a full radio promotion service, a national shop strike force, and international promotion in Europe — where next, the World?! . . . Lisa Horan has replaced Paul Kindred as club plugger at Breakout/A&M . . . Linda Rogers has left BCM Records, leaving Ruth Rothwell and Record Mirror contributor Muff Fitzgerald as a caretaker UK staff . . . Edinburgh’s Dance Department promotion service (031-551 2477) intends to prove that there is more to Scottish dance taste than PWL and Hi-NRG! . . . Capital FM jocks Mick & Pat’s third annual Easter Help A London Child charity record will be a revival of Odyssey’s ‘Use It Up And Wear It Out‘, produced as usual by Stock Aitken Waterman . . . London’s KISS-fm seems likely to be gaining the services of a certain superstar reggae DJ when it comes on air in August . . . Mike Shaft sadly has left Sunset Radio, the black music Manchester incremental station that was his personal dream come true, resigning after a boardroom battle because apparently his otherwise successful programming policy had failed to attract enough national advertisers — it’s hard and cruel in the real world of radio, where idealism and love of music have to give way to commercial pressure . . . Jerry Hipkiss, sticking to his soul guns like Robbie Vincent in the face of the acid and now indie onslaught, has lost his Saturday Dancetrax show on Severn Sound (where he’s still music librarian), but continues jocking Mondays at Hereford’s Lovejoys . . . Peter Young has moved already from afternoons to 9am-noon weekday mornings on London’s new Jazz-FM (“102.2, the hottest number in town”), where an intended ‘touch screen’ control system was aborted just before the station went on air because, as he says, “The screen kept reverting to a normal TV picture, and every time I touched Peter Sissons’ nose a Muddy Waters record started”! . . . Sharon Redd, following her guest vocal for Larry Joseph & Science, has also been recording solo in London with Alan Cross & China Burton of What It Is! Productions . . . Benjamin Zephaniah is the correctly spelt name of the poet starting ‘The Poem’ by Bobby Konders’ House Rhythms . . . CJ Mackintosh has also remixed Janet Jackson’s ‘Escapade’ . . . ffrr’s pressing of the previously limited edition, shuffling acidic instrumental Orbital ‘Chime’ (Oh’Zone Records FX 135) is a faster 120½bpm, the flip’s hypnotist overlaid gently twittering ambient ‘Deeper’ being 120¾bpm now . . . ‘Where’s Your Head (12″ Mix)’ is on Shabazz’s commercial B-side, here 104¾bpm . . . Oleta Adams’ B-side ‘Don’t Look Too Closely’ is a slowly intensifying 37/74-76bpm . . . Ben Liebrand’s chunkily clonking though dated (due to the song) Extended Remix of Bill Withers’ hoarsely rasped ‘Harlem ’89’ is 112½-114½-114bpm, his alternative Street Mix 113-114¼bpm and 1971’s original Bobbie Gentry-ish ‘Harlem’ 112-114½bpm . . . Sweet Exorcist ‘Testone’ has been remixed (WARP/Outer Rhythm WAP 3R) as the still jerkily bleeping (and 125½bpm) ‘Testfour‘, ‘Testfive‘, and a short empty ‘Testsix‘! . . . Tongue ‘N’ Cheek appear this Wednesday (21) at Soho’s Jacqueline’s with DJ David RB and MC AW1 from the Trax Production Posse (this previously announced night having been postponed) . . . The Shamen PA next Monday (26) at the returned weekly Land Of Oz in Charing Cross’s Heaven, with DJs Paul Oakenfold, Alfredo, Fat Tony, Tony Wilson, Nancy Noise, The Orb and live rapper Ricky Light — jocks from a similar though expanded team are for the next three months taking the Land Of Oz concept on a one-niter tour of 25 UK clubs, featuring PAs by such as Adamski, Electra, Izit, Guru Josh, Jesus Loves You, E-Zee Posse, Cry Sisco, KLF and other popsters . . . DJ Jay joins Mike McGowan for the Friday raves at Torquay’s Claires Club, while his own Big Beat Sunday was so successful on Sunday it’s now moved to Saturday at Teignmouth’s Bugsy B’s . . . David C.L. Young (very formal!), newly appointed nightclub promotions manager for Stakis Leisure in Scotland, is with guest DJs updating Monday at Paisley’s Toledo Junction under the name Monsoon (“Where The Music Reigns“) . . . Whitstable’s Bob Le-Roi, retaining his roadshow, has given up club work to freelance for East Kent’s Invicta Radio . . . Bizz Nizz ‘Don’t Miss The Party‘, biggest initially in the North, has already been described by Hugh Bryder of Liverpool’s Mardi Gras Club as “the acid ted anthem of the year so far”! . . . David A. Stewart featuring Candy Dulfer’s hit has a perfectly danceable seven inch, so why did the 12 inch mixes have to be mucked up with that tempoless ambient break? . . . Diana Brown & The Brothers’ ‘Masterplan‘, due next month, sounded so strong on first radio hearing that I couldn’t leave my car until Tim Westwood had back-announced what it was — not many newies are that good! . . . KICKIN’!
Reviewed by James Hamilton and Norman Cook
ALISHA WARREN ‘Discover Me’ (100bpm) (RCA PT 43492)
Combining the feel of Lisa Stansfield and Soul II Soul, this superb sultrily soulful swaying jogger is obviously right on the button for today’s tastes and is likely to be huge, flipped by its starkly percussive Acappella and the fluidly bounding ‘Touch Me (The Amore Mix)‘ (122bpm). Now, what’s all this about the 49ers?!
NATION 12 ‘Listen To The Drummer’ (Norman Cook)
KEY III ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’ (Norman Cook)
RUTHLESS RAP ASSASSINS ‘4 From The Killer’ (Norman Cook)
808 STATE ‘The Extended Pleasure Of Dance’ (Norman Cook)
REBEL MC ‘Better World (Peace Mix)’ (118¼bpm) (Desire WANT X 25, via Pacific)
Instantly massive while just on promo, this bassily resonant booming jaunty sk’ip house bounder is raggamuffin-ishly rapped by the ‘Street Tuff’ star between wordless wailing by Michelle Jones, who sings a proper chorus in the flip’s tighter and possibly tougher Unity Mix. Sk’ip house? Well, if sk’acid was ska/acid and sk’ouse was ska/house, you work it out!
SOLID GOLD EASY AMEX featuring Red Box ‘Enjoy (Golden Lay Original)’ (104¼bpm) (east west records YZ466T)
Apparently this original Red Box B-side — a cock crow introed bass snapped hauntingly melodic jiggly instrumental with snatches of dialogue, laughter and other effects — was in such demand on the Balearic scene that it has been bootlegged several times, but is now due out legally again coupled by the more homogenised and slick though still haunting new Paul Oakenfold’s Future Mix (103½bpm). A likely national smash!
TODAY ‘Why You Get Funky On Me’ (110bpm) (US Motown MOT-4711)
Teddy Riley’s finest yet to my mind (though Gene Griffin gets the credit), this terrific infectiously smacking jiggly swingbeat roller whips up such a zestful lick that you’re swept along with it, in ‘House Party’ soundtrack mix, Extended Version, and (110¼bpm) Instrumental. I probably terrified the neighbours by clapping madly along while reviewing it at the dead of night!
TRIBAL HOUSE ‘Motherland A-fri-ca (Cry Freedom Mix)’ (121bpm) (Cooltempo COOLXS 198)
Remixed by Jon Jules amongst others, this friskily tumbling, throbbing and thumping new treatment topically overdubs snippets of speech from Nelson Mandela’s release, an ideal combination that could make it even bigger than before, coupled now with the similar chanting though speechless Another Mother Mix.
ROBERT OWENS ‘Visions’ (120¼bpm) (US 4th + B’way SWAY 497)
Produced and mixed by Frankie Knuckles and David Morales, with Satoshi Tomiie and Eric Kupper tinkling their keyboards behind the soulfully moaning Fingers Inc singer, how much more desirable a deep house jiggler could you imagine (in M*K Mix, Doped Up Instrumental, Bonus Beats, and Dreamy Version)?
J.L. LINE ‘Another Day In Paradise (The Only Version)’ (97½bpm) (jaba 12 JABA 1, via BMG)
Challenging the other rival Jam Tronik treatment, this even more excitingly sets a Phil Collins copying vocal to the ‘In The Air Tonight’ drumbeats augmented Soul II Soul ‘Keep On Movin’’ rhythm, cheeky and devilishly clever! An unrelated ‘Choose The Groove’ flip consists of three different basic break beats, 94¼bpm, 99bpm, and a decelerating 96½bpm.
SKIPWORTH & TURNER ‘Thinking About Your Love (Paul Simpson Remix)’ (109bpm) (4th + B’way 12 BRW 165)
Also included in its remorselessly rolling Original 12″ (105¼bpm) from exactly five years ago, still superior to the duo’s current product, the “black ‘Bolero'”-like ever building but unresolved nagger now becomes a soulful falsetto wailed less dense lurcher in Paul Simpson’s update, or a more chunkily shuffling jiggler in its alternative Democratic 3 Mix (105½bpm).
UNIQUE 3 ‘Weight For The Bass’ (10 Records TENX 298)
Bradford’s DJ crew follow ‘The Theme’ with an odd nervy sparse percussive instrumental rattler in Digi House Mix (119½bpm), 3 Ton Mix (119¾bpm), and Original Soundyard Dubplate Mix (118¼bpm), but far hotter for many is the AA-side’s brilliant funkily bubbling jumpy hip hop ‘Musical Melody’ (118½bpm), a fast talking rap prodded by vintage flute, bass and brass.
TERRAJACKS ‘Total Stranger (New Decade Mix 2)’ (121¾bpm) (RCA PT 43582)
Electribe 101 -ish deadpan girl cooed twittery canterer grabbing instant attention, flipped by an ambient clichés stuffed mushier instrumental Tropical Dream Mix (121½bpm), due fully next week.
ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK ‘House Party’ (US Motown MOT-6296)
From a Kid ‘N Play and Full Force starring movie that looks like a must for rap and swingbeat fans, this fairly solid set has the urgent jittery mirthful FLAVOR FLAV ‘I Can’t Do Nothing For You, Man!’ (117bpm), funkily rolling duetted L.L. COOL J & MARLEY MARL ‘To Da Break Of Dawn‘ (103¼bpm), rare grooving argumentative KID ‘N PLAY ‘Kid vs. Play (The Battle)‘ (107bpm) and their already 12-inched perky ‘Funhouse‘ (113¼bpm), also 12-inched mesmerically smacking swingbeat TODAY ‘Why You Get Funky On Me (110bpm), snapping jiggly harmonised FORCE M.D.’S ‘Jive Time Sucker‘ (107bpm), bumpy gruff swingbeat ARTS & CRAFTS ‘What A Feeling‘ (11bpm), episodic groaning slow KENNY VAUGHAN & THE ART OF LOVE ‘This Is Love‘ (73½/36¾bpm), and the lively leaping new jack swing title track (114¼bpm) by FULL FORCE FAMILY featuring Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam, U.T.F.O, Cheryl ‘Pepsii’ Riley, Doctor Ice, Ex-Girlfriend, and E-Crof.
STETSASONIC ‘A.F.R.I.C.A. (Norman Cook Remix)’ (88¼bpm) (Go.Beat GODX 40)
Inspired (and introed, on the lead track) by the Rev. Jesse Jackson rather than by any African leader you might currently think of (although there is some “free Nelson Mandela”), this angrily chanting anti-apartheid rap jiggles deceptively slowly to a funky bass through four mixes on white labelled promo. The situation in Africa is changing so much it’s hard for records to remain topical.
JOE SMOOTH ‘They Want To Be Free (Strauss ln The House 12″ Mix)’ (124bpm) (D.J. International Records 655740 6, via CBS)
Justin Strauss remixed hi-hat hissed friskily leaping galloper with “free South Africa” lyrics, also in a Martin Luther King overdubbed Smooth Dub Mix and less spaciously cantering The Julian Jumpin’ Perez Mix.
RUBBERMAN ‘Rubberman Rocks This House’ (117½bpm) (Crew-Cuts BL 002)
‘Tubular Bells’ spiked strong MC Rubber Ronski rapped chugging and scratching ‘Set It Off’-ish treatment of Jon Moss’s 2½ years old original version of the more recently Jesus Loves You recorded ‘After The Love’ (‘Bells’ lacking shorter simple instrumental flip), due soon commercially on Big World as a Terry Farley remix.
THE CREEPS ‘Way Cool (The Global Groove Mix)’ (96bpm) (Swedish BTECH 12TEK30)
Quartz remixed (with a rhythm used also by the forthcoming remix of Primal Scream’s ‘Loaded’!) rolling slinky jiggler fitting the Soul II Soul groove but with a languid huskily chatting and singing male vocal, emphasised on the flip’s ‘phonecalling early Seventies ‘blaxploitation’ movie soundtrack flavoured Original Nordik Ghetto Mix (89¾bpm).
MICHAEL JEFFRIES with KARYN WHITE ‘Not Thru Being With You (The Club Fire Mix)’ (101bpm) (Warner Bros W2797T)
Jam & Lewis created snappily jittering swingbeat jolter, with a good gimmicky teasing intro (coupled by more routine Extended and Radio Fire Mixes), or now also out separately (coupled merely by The Remix Edit and Acappella Version) in different densely tugging jiggly style as The Remix (100¾bpm) (W2797TX).
E-ZEE POSSEE (featuring M.C. Kinky) ‘Everything Starts With An ‘E’ (Renegade Soundwave Mix)’ (119¾bpm) (More Protein PROTR 1-12)
Having hit again in last year’s original mixes, ‘Everything Begins With An ‘E” now starts anew (though still with a yowling rock guitar intro) in Renegade Soundwave’s ‘Set It Off’-ishly pshta pshta-ed thudding jaunty remix, flipped by their intro-less and perhaps more potent Dub.
MR. FINGERS ‘What About This Love (Drum & Bass Vocal)’ (113¼bpm) (ffrr FXR 131)
Larry Heard’s earlier UK-only B-sided attractive mellow tinkling Drum & Bass instrumental remix now gains some breathy vocal too, coupled by Frankie Foncett’s aggressively jittering Even Deeper Mix (113bpm), surely a misnomer?
INNOCENCE ‘Natural Thing (The Collision Mix)’ (103bpm) (Cooltempo COOLXR 201)
Gee Morris cooed jiggly booming (original?) mix by its producers, Jolley Harris Jolley, without any Pink Floyd — athough their ‘Shine On You Crazy Diamond’ still runs through the flip’s Sunset Mix (103¼-102¾bpm).
MAGORIA ‘Mutoid Waste (Tantric Tempo)’ (122¼bpm) (Girls Only Records 12 HE-1001, via Spartan)
Multi-tracked lightly chanting Swedish girl’s good homegrown (and SweMixed) brightly lurching churner, its interesting fluid rhythm including a variation on the clacking billiard balls sound, flipped by an oddly spelt New Neuvaux Mix radio version (121½bpm).
MICHEL’LE ‘No More Lies (Extended Dance Mix)’ (110½bpm) (Atco B9149T)
Dr. Dre produced 18 year old (pronounced Michell-ay) a gimmicky little girl speaking voice with strident singing on a funky drummer and squidgy bass synth driven chunky lurcher currently huge Stateside (110¼bpm LP, More Lies, and Instrumental Versions too).
ELAINE HUDSON ‘On A Long And Winding Road (Little Devil Mix)’ (123bpm) (RCA PT 43488)
Sydney Youngblood co-penned instrumentally started then exuberantly wailed (almost as an afterthought, and not for long enough), spirited beefily wriggling jittery fast new jack swing-ish jumper (Instrumental and Dub too).
WIRED ‘New York, New York’ (125bpm) (US Fourth Floor Records FF-1110)
Bass, drums and resonant tones throbbed murkily galloping monotonous instrumental (with shouts), in the Musto-Bones Mix A-side’s Direct From Bklyn Club and Out In London Dub, and Bklyn Funk Essential Mix B-side’s Lenny & Vic’s Hypnotic Mix, Brooklyn Funk Dub, and Mahaska Beats.
JIMMY SOMERVILLE ‘Read My Lips (Enough Is Enough)’ (125½bpm) (London LONX 254)
Pascal Gabriel produced typically whinneyed wriggly bass thudded hustling trotter remixed by the JZJ team of Jazzy M & Julian Jonah, with their vibes tinkled flurrying Dub too (on promo, anyway), plus Stephen Hague’s much catchier more usefully Pet Shop Boys-ish 7-Inch mix.
ADAMSKI ‘Killer’ (120bpm) (MCA Records MCAT 1400)
With radio play as its aim, this bumpily striding brand new lurcher is hoarsely moaned by a guy called Seal, though for ravers the flip has his album’s already hot and more typically acidic (but now more slowly mixed), keyboards piped and throbbed, jerkily spurting ‘The Bassline Changed My Life‘ (119¾bpm).
JEANNE D. & THE FORCE ‘Shake It Up! (Vibration Club Mix)’ (121¾bpm) (Dance Music D-2851) ‘Pump Up The Jam’-type rumbling and squawking jiggly thudder, with an obviously bassier Bass Attack Mix and (121½bpm) Edit.
HYPNOTECK ‘Pump Pump It Up’ (123½bpm) (Sure Delight SDT 18, via Jet Star/EMI)
Clichéd samples prodded lazy guy’s twittery hip house rap (alternative mix and acappella flip), previously on German ZYX Records.
THE GHERKIN JERKS ‘1990’ (US Gherkin Records GKE 1058)
Larry ‘Mr Fingers’ Heard created monotonously simple repetitive instrumental six-tracker with the hollow pulsing ‘Meltdown’ (127-126½bpm), wriggly ambient ‘Blast Off‘ (130¾-130¼bpm), coolly tweeting ‘Red Planet‘ (124½-123bpm), hummingly looped ‘Saturn V‘ (126¼bpm), bassily throbbing ‘Space Dance‘ (128¼-128bpm), and jittery leaping ‘Strange Creatures‘ (127¼-126¼bpm).
EXPOSÉ ‘Tell Me Why (12″ Remix)’ (120bpm) (Arista 612 928)
Paul Dakeyne & Steve Anderson remixed now Euro influenced vigorous throbbing strider, choppily gurgled by the girls, flipped by its producer Lewis A. Martineé’s totally different juddery ponderous swingbeat-ish US Extended Remix (99¼bpm) and the wailing jittery latin pop ‘Let Me Down Easy‘ (116bpm).
