BEATS & PIECES
BEATS INTERNATIONAL Snap, Innocence, Kicking Back, Candy Flip, Robert Owens, MC Wildski, Diana Brown & Barrie K Sharpe, Carlton, David Grant, Titiyo, En Vogue, Darryl Pandy, Light Of The World, Leila K, Buss The Move, possibly Redhead Kingpin, plus of course the Soul II Soul DJs and a full 90 minute live set by Lisa Stansfield (her first anywhere) make the impressive final line-up of attractions at this Easter weekend’s Prestatyn four-dayer, sold out long ago . . . 1990 World Mixing champion DJ David, for his debut BCM Records release, is collaborating with MC Eric (of ‘This Beat Is Technotronic’) on a megamix of current — indeed Technotronic type — European hits, based though largely around Twenty 4 Seven’s ‘I Can’t Stand It’ . . . Paul Oakenfold’s decision to switch the music policy at Land Of Oz (Mondays in Charing Cross’s Heaven) from house to the slower beats that once again prevail in London (hurrah!) has apparently upset some pastel clad ravers but he intends sticking to his guns, perhaps not least because his own current studio creations are at the slower tempo . . . eastwest have picked up Olimax & DJ Shapps’ remake of ‘Last Night A DJ Saved My Life’ . . . David Bowie ‘Fame 90’ turns out to be on commercial 12 inch just in the Arthur Baker and (as it proves) John Gass remixes reviewed off promo, so presumably the DJ Mark The 45 King remix featuring Queen Latifah must be due separately . . . Rhythmatic, despite both their 0742 Records telephone area code label name and their minimalist electro style suggesting a Sheffield origin, rather oddly appear to be from Birmingham, their ‘Take Me Back’ being due for full release on that city’s Network label . . . Janice Christie’s haunting slinkily cooed ‘Tell Me Who (Who’s Been Sleeping In My Bed)’ (Movement Soul MSOUL 003, via 01-968 0228), very classy garage, is apparently in mixes by both New Jersey’s Tony Humphries and London’s Noel Watson, but the label only lists an uncredited 6.40 Club Mix (110¾bpm) and tightly following Epiphenomenal Mix (111-110¾bpm) — whatever that means! — on one side and a less smooth 9.00 Club Mix (111¼bpm) on t’other . . . The Cool House Dub of 2 Guys On Acid ‘House Music (All Night Long)’ is indeed the A track on the ‘Take Sting Away On Acid EP’ bootleg’s flip — any further suggestions about the second, girl group, track? . . . Donna Allen’s ‘Serious’ may be one source of inspiration for Jill Jones’s maddeningly familiar vocal phrasing in Ryuichi Sakamoto’s You Do Me’, but I’m not entirely convinced it’s the main one . . . Motor City Techno Mob, whose ‘Ready To Roll’ (reviewed last week) is not in fact out commercially until April 30, prove to consist of main man/producer David McMurray, a past P’funk associate of George Clinton and Bootsy Collins who has toured with Was (Not Was), plus jazz trumpeter Rayse Biggs and percussionist Asiha Hill . . . Prince himself penned Kid Creole And The Coconuts’ The Sex Of It’, now out here (CBS 655698 6) presumably in the already detailed three mixes that were teasingly credited on UK promo to KC & TC . . . Caister Soul Weekend DJs Tim Westwood, Colin Hudd, Bob ‘Hippy’ Jones, Gary Dennis, Dave Malone and Ray Keith, plus The Jazz Bags live, hold a Hardcore Jam this Wednesday (11) at Colchester’s Hippodrome, while some of the above are also at Colchester’s The Venue for an Easter Sunday Deep half-dayer (6pm-midnight), with Jay Strongman, Gary Dennis, Dave Malone, Ray Keith, Ju, Gilly, Turbo and The Jazz Bags again . . . Graham Gold this Thursday (12) starts a new Roccoco night at London’s Camden Palace . . . Jason Bushby’s Fridays are still firin’ at Saltburn-by-the-Sea’s Philmore, with regular PAs and guest DJs, this special Good Friday’s including DJ Liam, DJ Naz, Davy D & MC Junkie D, Mike Shaw and Nugroove, plus a PA by local hip hop collective Murder Inc…. Good Friday also sees the return to Torquay’s Monroes of the monthly Humdinger “scream and shout-free” real soul/jazz/funk night, with a PA by Innocence and guest DJ Simon Dunmore joining Chris Dinnis — whose Saturday 8-10pm soul show is still on Plymouth Sound 97FM in Devon/Cornwall, while his Dorset/Avon/Somerset aimed Orchard FM 102.6FM Saturday 6-8pm soul show actually reaches Exeter, South Wales, Bristol, Southampton and Bournemouth . . . Black Box, Guru Josh, Adamski, and Musto & Bones are amongst the live acts this Saturday (14) at an Energy party in Docklands’ London Arena . . . Passion 9T Part 1 is an Easter Sunday 2pm-midnight alldayer at Brixton’s The Fridge, with Unique 3, The Forgemasters and Shut Up And Dance among the live acts plus DJs Jumping Jack Frost, Fabio, Bones, ‘Evil’ Eddie Richards, Grooverider, Bryan Gee, Dave Foster, G-Force (Eureka) . . . Jeff Thomas’s black music Monday has moved from Port Talbot back to Swansea at ExI’s (sic), suitably called Martha’s Mondays as the club is in the same building as Martha’s Vineyard where it all began (he’s also on Wednesdays at Swansea’s Sloanes) . . . Andrew Holmes is among the Trash DJs hosting Let’s Get Horny Fridays at Manchester’s Precinct 13, combining upfront US house and hip hop with early Eighties West End/Prelude-type “114bpm (!)” classics, their next bi-monthly legal allniter being on Friday, April 27 . . . DJ Twitch and ‘mega’ DJ Brainstorm run UFO Friday nights (midnight-4am) at Edinburgh’s The Venue, spinning hard beat, hard house and technodub, with live sampling by Ege Bam Yasi . . . Belgian hard beat also dominates Future Zone Fridays and Saturdays at Burnley’s Angels with Paul Taylor and resident DJ/promotion manager David Croft, the latter back from two years of club and radio work in Norway and Switzerland . . . DJs Tim, Matt and Mark, saying there’s more to South Yorkshire than Sheffield (yeah, how about Tickhill?!), front a new fortnightly house club in Rotherham, The Bass-Ment in Masbrough’s Prince Of Wales Cellar Bar every second Friday — to judge from the date this info was sent, that could mean next week . . . Cleveland DJ Mark Watson, well known locally from the Mad Mark’s and T.F.M. Roadshows, needs a kidney transplant to lead a fully normal life but is surviving through use of a hospital’s kidney machine, advice about proven fund raising disco ideas to help finance a machine of his own being welcomed by fellow DJ Graham Murray on 0642-226270 . . . The Club Chart’s entry threshold was back up almost higher than ever last week, leaving several bubblers doorstepping just outside when a week earlier they’d have been in it: A Tribe Called Quest, Starpoint, Ecstasy, Pandella, Boneshakers (‘Reachin’ 1′ LP), The Motor City Techno Mob, 808 State, Cry Sisco! (Hard Spell Mix), The Man With No Name, BBG, amongst others . . . KICKIN’!

PLEASURE ‘Please’ (Dave Dorrell)
SOUL II SOUL ‘A Dreams A Dream (A Night At The Opera Mix)’ (103¼bpm) (10 Records TENX 300)
Eagerly awaited but still not due commercially for a fortnight, this hoarsely husky Victoria Wilson James wailed lovely undulating swayer, with swirling strings and some melodic vocal repetition reminiscent of Burt Bacharach’s classic arrangements for Dionne Warwick, eventually ends up by quoting briefly from Rose Royce’s ‘Wishing On A Star’ as it has hinted it might throughout, flipped by a more percussively tapping vocal Club Dub and the Courtney Pine saxed chunkily jogging instrumental ‘Courtney Blows‘ (92¼bpm).
MADONNA ‘Vogue (12″ Version)’ (116bpm) (Sire W9851T)
Co-created by Shep Pettibone and Madonna, this vigorously striding ‘Dancing In The Street’-ish canterer is indeed about striking a pose to go with the Vogueing dance, but is so instrumentally driving that the lyrics are secondary in its solitary UK 12 inch mix, flipped by just Shep’s chunkily jiggling 12″ Remix (104¾bpm) of the ‘Keep It Together‘ import hit, the two sides combining to make her strongest dancefloor filler in quite a while.
D-SHAKE ‘Techno Trance (Paradise Is Now)’ (123½bpm) (Dutch Go Bang! Records BANG 003)
“C’mon!” shouts prodded excitingly frantic vibrant driving pounder a bit like a flat out ‘Din Daa Daa’ performed on a dentist’s drill, delayed though by a long rhythmless throbbing intro and break but double A-sided with the similar though less remorselessly tense, more fluidly bounding ‘Yaaaaaaaaaah (Freestyle Club Mix)‘, a coupling that looks like being big.
DA POSSE & UNDERGROUND CREW ‘Feel The Melody’ (30/60-120¼bpm) (RePublic Records LICT 037)
Sensuous girl groaned and guy moaned pulsing gently jiggly ambient house burbler, with a sexier sparse ‘Orgasm‘ variation and raucously rapped “motherf**ker” filled ‘We Nasty’ treatment (both 60-120¼bpm), plus the girl rapped old frantic hip house ‘Strings (Break It Down)‘ (128bpm).
3RD BASS ‘Brooklyn-Queens (1st Base 12″ Mix)’ (112¾bpm) (Def Jam recordings 655830 6)
CJ Mackintosh & David Dorrell remixed Emotions ‘Best Of My Love’-ishly lurching and Kool & The Gang ‘Jungle Boogie’ brass stabbed jaunty rap, pressed as a commercial three-tracker with their different funky drum driven more instrumental Dub Base and Base Base Mixes, while an initially circulated promo four-tracker (XPR 1507) includes the 1st Base, Dub Base and an alternative Base Base based vocal 2nd Base Mix, plus a shorter really punchy Emotions/Kool jolted Home Run Mix (all nearer 112½bpm).
KICKING BACK with Taxman ‘Devotion (Dangerous Mix Part One)’ (104¼bpm) (10 Records TENR 297)
The John Crossley & Graeme Park produced superb ragga-soul jogger given a much sparser though still slinky clonking and drain gurgling percussive Groove remix, with an instrumental Part Two plus a fumblingly cantering instrumental ‘All I Want (Remix)‘ (120¾bpm).
LANCE ELLINGTON ‘Treat Me Right (Club Mix)’ (99½bpm) (A&M USAT 683)
Not to be confused with Adeva’s similarly titled newie, this much hyped British blue-eyed soulster’s debut is a Flyte Tyme Productions’ Steve Hodge produced, David Morales remixed (yet on the main A&M label, you’ll note, rather than its Breakout “dance” subsidiary), snappily jiggling lush swingbeat-ish swayer in an accomplished if mannered swooping and quavering vocal style, pleasant enough (The Right Dub and 7″ Radio Mix too), out next week.
CO DEPENDENTS OF KNOWLEDGE present ‘The Lite Side’ (117¾bpm) (C.T. Records CTT8, via Pacific)
Germany recorded (but out here ahead even of its own country, apart from promos in Berlin), sax squalled, piano jangled, funky drummed fierce yet atmospheric jittery ‘ambient-funk’ hip house instrumental with a little ragga rap and some shouted encouragement, flipped by a flute tootled moodier more percussive ‘The Dark Side‘ (117½bpm) variation.
MIKE DUNN ‘Born 2 B Houze (MARK! Medusa Mix)’ (123bpm) (Desire WANTX 24)
Mark Picchiotti remixed frantically scurrying infectious hip house wriggler rappingly duetted by Mike with Gershon Jackson, whose lyrics are worth studying in Edward ‘Get Down’ Crosby’s much more emptily thrumming The ‘Get Down’ House Mix and ‘Born 2 Houze (The ‘Get Down’ Dub)‘ (both 123½bpm) on the flip.
SOLID POSSE ‘Unity Rap’ (105bpm) (Sleeping Bag Records SBUK 22T)
Bob Marley ‘Could You Be Loved’ based bumpily jolting slinky rap by Europe based lead swapping ADL, K-Jam, and B-True MC Mack, with slippery scratching from the Solid Productions team of Cutfather, Soul Shock and Dr Jam, flipped by the murkily droning ‘It’s All Right Now‘ (86bpm) and jaggedly jerking nervy ‘Listen To The Jam‘ (106bpm).
BASS-O-MATIC ‘In The Realm Of The Senses’ (127¾bpm) (Guerilla Records GRRR 1, via Virgin)
William Orbit created, girl nagged twittery fast acid house — for once the real thing, like the newspapers still write about! — in differently treated Fantasy, Solaris, Bass-A-Pella, and (128bpm) Realm Of The Sensi Mixes.
JANET JACKSON ‘Escapade — Hippiapolis Mix’ (115bpm) (Breakout USAF 684)
CJ Mackintosh & David Dorrell remixed funky drummer bumped much stronger treatment for current UK tastes, with their Hippiapolis In Dub and different more smoothly loping One Nation Under A Rhythm Mix.
DEE’ MOE ‘One Step At A Time (Nomad Mix)’ (98½bpm) (Mercury MERXR 318)
Soul II Soul’s engineer Howie ‘Nomad Soul’ Bernstein remixed, so not surprisingly Soul II Soul-ish (or, thanks to the sweetly cooing and wailing girl, perhaps more Smith & Mighty-ish?), now lurchingly bumped infectious bouncy jiggler that still gets stronger the longer it’s on, this delayed commercial pressing being flipped by another new slithery brass accented sparser Horny Mix.
FRANK & FOZZY ‘Get Hip To The Music (Super Hyped Hip House)’ (122-120¼bpm) (US Viola Da Gamba VDG 1719)
Unusually light bubbly undulating hip house pulser unhurriedly rapped by two guys through plinking piano and some phasing effects, rather attractive, with a Kevin Dixon mixed bongo pattered echoing Dub Subliminal (122-121½bpm) and episodic Piano Trax (121¼-120-121½bpm), worth checking.
KEY III featuring Belinda Key ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough (Soul II Club Mix)’ (98-97¼-98bpm) (GTi Records GTI 010T)
Interesting good if predictable Soul II Soul-ishly tempoed jiggly jogging adaptation of the Ashford & Simpson penned Diana Ross classic, white labelled with two shorter and emptier mixes (97½bpm), originally on Panthera import.
T.D.P. ‘Ladies (Let’s Go) (Dexmaniax Remix)’ (123¼bpm) (Reachin’ Records RERT 001R, via Spartan)
Presumably Roger Johnson & Chris Forbes remixed ultra frantically bubbling revamp of the drily rapped “jazz-house” leaper, flipped by producers The King & I’s less subtle speedily racing Rave Mix (122¾bpm) and East Side Mix (120¾bpm).
ECSTASY ‘Don’t Play Me Raw’ (US Sleeping Bag Records SLX-40160)
Duane Oats & Gary Wallace created jauntily chugging or steadily striding and at times “pomp up the jam” quoting girl group chanter given contrastingly different house treatments in Joe Smooth’s Raw Mix (123¾bpm), Gary ‘Jackmaster’ Wallace & ‘The D.O.C.’ Oats’ House In Effect Mix (122¾bpm), Larry Thompson & Rick Lenoir’s L-N-R Deep House Mix (122½bpm), Farley ‘Jackmaster’ Funk’s Farley’s House Mix (122½bpm), Edward ‘Get Down’ Crosby’s Get Down Mix (122¼bpm), and a Radio Mix (123bpm).
ASIA LOVE ‘You Should Be Here’ (115¾bpm) (US Nugroove NG 042)
SMASH created gentle girls muttered and cooed jazz-funkily burbling jiggler in attractive Mass Mix, or more jittery Bobby Byrd punctuated Hip Hot Mix and guy prodded chunkily lurching Love Dub versions, already playlisted by many DJs (though, as of last week, not high enough to chart).
JAY MONDI AND THE LIVIN’ BASS ‘All Night Long (Remix)’ (103bpm) (10 Records TENR 304)
Piano jangled and bass growled slinkily jittering remix by Chris Paul of his girlfriend’s excellent Mary Jane Girls revival, flipped by the original pressing’s Club Mix and ‘Way To Go’.
