April 21, 1990: Movement .98 (featuring Carroll Thompson), M.C. Duke & D.J. Leader 1, Musto & Bones, Touch Of Soul, Don Pablo’s Animals

BEATS & PIECES

AS UNWITTINGLY hinted in last week’s Lance Ellington review, the ‘dance’ label Breakout has in fact been dissolved, all its directly signed acts being dropped apart from L.A. Mix and Jazzi P, who will now be on the main A&M label — to which Steve Wolfe (from Cooltempo) and Bob Masters (from Sleeping Bag Records) are moving as of next Monday to run a revamped dance music division, under the guidance of Jeff Young . . . Arthur Baker and the Backbeat Disciples, amongst the defunct label’s dropped acts, are already talking to RCA . . . Wendy K takes over as head of club promotion at Sleeping Bag Records . . . L.A. Mix, incidentally, are preparing to record their second album and as before are talent scouting for singers and rappers to feature as guest vocalists — those interested in auditioning should first call their manager, Jimmy O’Reilly, on 071-372 1005 . . . Mantronix are again joined by Wondress for the April 30 released sinuous jiggly jogging ‘Take Your Time‘ (Capitol 12CL 573), in segued Club (107¼bpm) and Dub (108½bpm) versions, not so far included on their album (although this apparently is being rectified), flipped by the Bryce Luvah rapped jerkily racing hip house ‘Don’t You Want More (Club Version)‘ (122bpm) . . . DJ Mark The 45 King’s The 900 Number’ was recently deleted to build up a surge of demand after already selling about 50,000 copies here (its popularity since late 1988 as a dance craze tune having been spread slowly by word of mouth), so that it should finally storm the Top 40 (and then be killed stone dead?) when re-released on April 30 (Dance Trax DRXZ 912) including, as previously revealed, some brand new Chad Jackson remixes, currently promoed (though not all are due commercially) with his funkily drumming and James Brown grunts punctuated Numeric Breakdown, C.J. Breakdown (108bpm) and ‘For The Love Of Money’ bassed amongst other changes A Different Style (108½bpm), plus the slowed down Marva Whitney ‘Unwind Yourself’ intro looping Original Instrumental (107¼bpm) . . . CBS have postponed commercial release of The Chimes’ slinkily swaying ‘Stronger Together’ (94½bpm), promoed on white label in David Morales’ lushly drifting Red Zone and more immediately wailing Unified Mixes, as detailed last week by Dave Dorrell, rushing instead their version of U2’s ‘Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For‘ within the next fortnight to coincide with its US release (although apparently we’ll be getting some different mixes) . . . Soft House Company ‘What You Need…‘, an import ‘sleeper’ since last November, is due here soon on a new Phonogram label, Global Village . . . BCM Records have finally got around to releasing Wood Allen ‘Airport ’89’ here (BCM326X) . . . ‘House Party’, the US hit movie’s rap and swingbeat soundtrack album featuring Flavor Flav, LL Cool J & Marley Marl, Kid ‘N Play, Today, Force MD’s, Full Force Family and more, fully reviewed on import w/e March 24, is now out here (Motown ZL72699) . . . Public Enemy’s disappointing ‘911 Is A Joke‘ (103bpm) has been taking its time hitting The Club Chart but is flipped by the much better frenetically churning and jiggling ‘Revolutionary Generation‘ (113½bpm) . . . Cherrelle with Alexander O’Neal ‘Saturday Love’, a surprisingly brief flash in the pan once commercially released in Olimax & DJ Shapps’ invigorating remix, is also now out in a much more mundane Steve Anderson remix (116bpm) that sticks closer to the original (Tabu 655800 8) . . . Frankie Knuckles’ previously promo B-sided Frankie’s Favourite Garage Mix of Tongue ‘N’ Cheek ‘Tomorrow’ is due now commercially flipped by Frankie’s Def Dub plus ‘Encore (Slammin’ Mix)’ (Syncopate 12SYX 34) . . . Boney M featuring Liz Mitchell’s cryptically white labelled cover version of ‘Stories’ (Ariola 612 997) is flipped by not only what appears to be its Radio Mix (93¾bpm) but also the unrelated joltingly rolling instrumental ‘Rumours‘ (101¼bpm) ‘A Vinyl Junkie’ anonymously infos from Marlow that the girl group track on the ‘Take Sting Away On Acid EP’ bootleg’s B-side is ‘Take Me Away’ from the original Italian flip of The Mix Master’s ‘Grand Piano’ (of which I only ever had a Spanish pressing, with a much altered Raul Orellana remix of ‘Take Me Away’) —thanks, AVJ! . . . Rhythmatic are revealed as being Leroy Crawford and Mark Gamble, the guys from Krush — it seems they named the 0742 Records label (on which their now Network scheduled ‘Take Me Back’ first appeared) after the telephone area code for Sheffield merely as that is where they happened to be at the time! . . . Reachin’ Records have moved offices to Unit 302, Metrostore, Eastman Road, Acton, London W3 7QS (telephone 081-749 8619, fax 081-746 1209, the different exchange numbers being correct) . . . Lisa Farrar and Rupert Garricks will be handling respectively radio and club promotion under Marie Birch at Impact Record Promotions (071-602 8822) . . . Middlesbrough’s Blaises has a Murder Inc Monday next week (April 23) with DJ Naz, DJ Mad ‘A’, Jason Bushby, DJ Liam, MC Fox, plus raving keyboardist ‘Scoots’ live . . . Paul Campbell hosts house and hip hop Thursdays at Warrington’s Oliver’s pub . . . Steve Aspey is the new presenter of the Saturday 6-9pm ‘Dance Trax’ show on Severn Sound 102.4FM/774AM . . . BBC producer Nick Ware is currently working on a three part series for Radio 1 about the history of discotheques and disco music in the UK, which should be well worth hearing when eventually it’s aired . . . The Club Chart’s entry threshold was the highest it’s ever been last week, thanks to DJs’ concentration in strength on a narrower range of records (despite there being increasingly more dance product about) than in the past, the points needed to enter at 100= last week being enough normally to hit the upper 70s, the result being for instance that Larry Joseph & Science kept the same number of points as the previous week yet fell from 61 to 83 while a massive 30 breakers had enough points normally to hit the 100 . . . KICKIN’!


HOT VINYL

MOVEMENT .98 (featuring Carroll Thompson) ‘Joy And Heartbreak’ (Circa Records YRTPRX 45)
Created by the Electra team of Rob Davis, Paul Oakenfold and Steve Osborne, this twinpack promoed (out separately next week) instantly massive Carroll cooed and naggingly familiar chimes accented sweetly swaying gorgeous — one hesitates to say, yet again, Soul II Soul-ish — drifter has Oakenfold & Osborne’s tightly tapping The Future Mix (96bpm) and gently weaving The Raid Mix (93½bpm) on one single, and on the other (with repetition of the latter) Smith & Mighty’s resonant though less fluid Mellow Mix (94bpm) and perhaps more atmospheric doodling Mellow Instrumental Mix (93¾bpm).

M.C. DUKE & D.J. LEADER 1 ‘The Final Conflict (Rap Version)’ (116¼bpm) (Music Of Life NOTE 35 DJ)
Introed like a trailer to ‘Omen III (The Final Conflict)’, this Simon ‘DJ Leader 1’ Harris mixed and co-produced angry rap jiggler is full of menace though lightened by some title line quotes from Peter Gabriel’s ‘Games Without Frontiers’, with its Instrumental too and coupled also on promo by The Buggen Haggen Mix, Bonus Beats and Percapella, but flipped commercially by a scratching jittery 1990 Remix (119-119¼bpm) of ‘I’m Riffin’ and its 1990 Instrumental (119¾-119½bpm).

MUSTO & BONES ‘All I Want Is To Get Away’ (121¾bpm) (CityBeat CBFT 5)
Only on (widely circulated) promo as a sampler plugging Tommy & Frankie’s ‘The Future Is Ours’ album, this jittery scurrying Italo house meets Todd Terry-type wriggler has a catchy though overly repeated title line chorus, flipped by (from just the CD version) the acidically churning ‘This Will Be Mine‘ (121¾bpm) and twittery ‘Tequiro‘ (122¾bpm), both in washing machine style.

TOUCH OF SOUL ‘We’ve Got The Love’ (118bpm) (Cooltempo COOLX 204)
Vigorously cantering Italo house with ‘Roots’-ish piano, an oddly lisping girl’s occasional comments, and wailing “we got a love” chants sampled from the (fully credited) recent Lonnie Gordon remake of First Choice’s ‘Let No Man Put Asunder’, or with separate self explanatory Piano and Xylophone instrumental versions. Just starting to warm up on import when it was rushed out here, this has fast become one of the big ‘uns!

DON PABLO’S ANIMALS ‘Venus (The Piano Mix)’ (126¼-125½bpm) (German ZYX Records ZYX 6281-12)
From the same Italian BHF Team as ‘Moments In Soul’, this ultra commercial Chuck Berry ‘My Ding-A-Ling’ introed then dynamically pounding instrumental revamp of Shocking Blue’s 20 years old classic (phasing the original guitar by the sound of it) uses the “wooh yeah” hip house beat and is so exciting it’s sure to be huge once easier to find, flipped by the title muttering, throbbing and swirling ‘Paranoia‘ (116bpm).

adventures of STEVIE V ‘Dirty Cash (Money Talks) (Sold Out Mix)’ (120½-120¼bpm)
Last autumn’s hip house-ish ‘sleeper’ now belatedly remixed by David Morales with his own gently throbbing percussion driving the attractive girl sung main melody, the Stevenage rapper whose record it is hardly getting a look in now, and not at all on the flip’s sparser more ambient Red Zone Mix (120½bpm) and totally instrumental Sax Mix (120¾bpm).

VOLUME TEN ‘Pride’ (102bpm) (RCA PRIDE 1)
Jolley Harris Jolley created terrific densely tugging reggae tinged Soul II Soul-ish girl wailed jogger, with sexy French muttering as it progresses through its appropriately named Dance Hall and even tighter More Than Special versions, out commercially in a fortnight.

K COLLECTIVE ‘Never Stop’ (97¾bpm) (ritmo recordings 12 RIT2, via Total/BMG)
Brand New Heavies drummer and bassist Jan Kincaid and Andrew Levy back the former’s tenderly mournful moaning with one of those rumbling and rolling, jiggly jogging, groin grinding grooves that traditionally always carry the swing in London’s blacker clubs, flipped by a more percussively tapping Special Mix.

DOUBLE TROUBLE ‘Talkback’ (120bpm) (Desire WANTX 27)
Janette Sewell grittily wails the now Rebel MC-less duo’s jerkily pattering and jiggling urgent percussive jitterer, in just a Club Mix and smoother Low Frequency Response flipside version (though doubtless there will be a myriad of remixes to follow).

JAY WILLIAMS ‘Sweat (Garage Mix)’ (119½bpm) (Urban URBXR 50)
Bass bumped jangly sparse remix by Bigshot Records’ Nick Anthony Fiorucci, with a tighter jittery Progress Mix and stuttery Fiorucci Dub (both 119¾bpm), now proving more popular than the original.

PLUS ONE ‘It’s Happenin” (118bpm) (MCA Records MCAT 1405)
Bumpily lurching and percolating sparse simple hip house bubbler from Huddersfield by brothers Sam and Dexter Roberts, plus one languidly chatting lead vocal by a guy called Sirron (which is how the act gets its name), with Instrumental and Dub (117¾bpm) too, due fully next week but proving hard to hold until then.

ADEVA ‘Treat Me Right (The JZJ Mix)’ (120bpm) (Cooltempo COOLXP 200)
Now also remixed here, her gritty staccato wailer has been stripped right down by this sparse jerky thumping Jazzy M & Julian Jonah revamp, coupled with a probably better more lushly pulsing The Big Jam Mix, promoed like the preceding two Smack Productions mixes ahead of commercial release (when both, apparently still separate, singles will also include the previously unreleased ‘Love Is Special‘).

DAVID GRANT ‘Keep It Together (Extended Mix)’ (106bpm) (4th + B’way 12 BRW 169)
Mike Stevens & Livingston Brown produced pleasant jiggly rolling soul swayer featuring some of Mike’s jazzy sax, with mix interference by Simon Law also in the similar Single Mix (106bpm) but not the more drily jolting Rare Groove Mix (105¾bpm), coupled also with last year’s Blacksmith remixed more slinkily jogging ‘Life (Brixton Bass Mix)’ (98bpm).

CRITICAL RHYTHM (Featuring Angelique) ‘Fall Into A Trance (Brooklyn Funk Essential Mix)’ (122bpm) (US Nugroove NG 044)
Victor Simonelli & Lenny Dee created, with help from Peter Daou and Tommy Musto, girl and guy muttered jiggly swimming trotter, with a virtually rhythmless Alternative Ambient Mix (61bpm), coupled by the Jango Thriller & Vandal featuring breathily sinuous slow reggae tinged ‘It Could Not Happen (Essential Trance Hall Mix)‘ (85bpm) with its Version, plus the emptily pulsing Indian flavoured ‘Eastern Breeze (Authentic Mix)‘ (119¼/59½bpm), all a bit specialist.

D MOB featuring Cathy Dennis ‘That’s The Way Of The World (The Final D-Mix)’ (118¾bpm) (ffrr FXR 132)
Smoothly thrumming and chugging spaced out David Morales remix creating a pleasant mood before eventually reaching the attractive song, flipped by his similar even more mellow resonant Dub-Me Mix instrumental.

MAUREEN WALSH ‘Don’t Hold Back’ (122½bpm) (Urban URBX 49)
Promoed as a twinpack (with just one mix per side), this Krush produced, Bruce Forest & Robin Hancock mixed throbbingly pounding galloper by the Maureen who made Bomb The Bass’s ‘Say A Little Prayer’ is cut in half for commercial release, in its Club Vocal and totally instrumental Space Mix.

LOOSE BRUCE ‘Feelin’ Moody’ (121bpm) (Tam Tam Records TTT 025)
Movie acting New Yorker making his rapping vinyl debut with a staccato jerky sparse hip house lurcher, in sampled snippets woven Loose Mix (a bit of a misnomer!), Radio Mix, Feelin’ Dubby and Rapless versions.

2-MAD ‘Don’t Hold Back The Feeling’ (124¾bpm) (Big Life BLR 18T)
Chase and A.Z. with rapper Voidskee’s debut single is a tongue twistingly fast talking frantically jittering and surging tight bassy throbber, in Don’t Hold Back The Bass Mix, more acidic Piano Mix and twittery instrumental Acidic Dub versions.

BETTY BOO ‘Doin’ The Do’ (Rhythm King LEFT 39TP)
Promoed ahead of April 30 release, this abrasively rapped R. Dean Taylor sampling bright sk’ip house jumper is in King John mixed cheerfully thudding Betty Side (120½bpm) and Beatmasters mixed jiggly shuffling Boo Side (118½bpm) versions.

TWENTY 4 SEVEN ‘I Can’t Stand It! (Hip House Remix)’ (122½bpm) (BCM Records BCM 395x)
‘Roots’-ishly jangled routine though bright Dutch pop-hip house jumper with corny rapping by Tony Harrison a.k.a. Capt. Hollywood and chanting support by Nancy (Long Instrumental flip), soon to be the basis for DJ David’s debut release.

PROFESSOR GRIFF AND THE LAST ASIATIC DISCIPLES ‘Pawns In The Game’ (108¾bpm) (Luke Skyywalker GR 131, via Greyhound Records)
The controversial Public Enemy reasonably stating his standpoint to rolling JB samples and scratches (Instrumental too), coupled at greater length by his new militant colleagues’ equally good ‘Last Asiatic Disciples‘ (108¼bpm), and his own cryptically titled jerkily tugging angry ‘Love Thy Enemy‘ (107¾bpm), here with backwards tape edits protecting us from the more inflammatory words.

  1. Lance Ellington, could that be the same Lance Ellington who is a featured vocalist in Dave Arch’s band that provides the live music for Strictly Come Dancing?

    1. Yes, it’s the same guy! As James will later reveal, Lance Ellington is the son of Ray Ellington, who was leader of The Goon Show’s house band in the 1950s. Lance Ellington was also one half of Koffee N’ Kreme, who won ITV’s New Faces in 1977.
