BEATS & PIECES
REISSUE OF the already promoed DJ Mark The 45 King’s ‘The 900 Number’ is being postponed because, as Chad Jackson went back to the original Marva Whitney ‘Unwind Yourself’ source for his included remixes rather than using DJ Mark’s version (of which a master tape was unavailable), Mark magnanimously has suggested that Chad should put out his much augmented new treatments under his own name — which is how they will appear, retitled ‘Hear The Drummer Get Wicked‘ with an additional new B-side track, in mid-May (Chad, incidentally, was one of the very first to pick up on ‘The 900 Number’ when in New York with DJ Pogo and Cutmaster Swift in July 1988, all three grabbing copies from the first shipment to arrive at Downstairs Records!) . . . Squire Sound & Light, the renowned 1972 established disco equipment suppliers, with stores in Glasgow, Manchester, West Bromwich and Guildford too, have moved their London base from Tufnell Park to a brand new megastore between Harlesden and the North Circular, just off Brentfield Road (by the Shell garage) at Unit 12, New Business Centre, Artesian Close, London NW10 8RW (081-451 5556) . . . Don Pablo’s Animals’ smash bound ‘Venus’ is slower now that it’s out here on Rumour Records (RUMAT 18), in not only The Piano Mix (125-124¼bpm) but also a UK-only new more ‘Din Da Da’-ish chugging The Bonus Mix (122¾-123¼bpm), flipped still by ‘Paranoia’ (115¾bpm) . . . Foremost Poets ‘Reasons To Be Dismal?’ (SBK.One 12SBK 7010) is also here slower than the import, in its Foresight (122¾-123½bpm), Beyond Sight and Insight (120½bpm) Versions . . . Fluke delicately pick the driving acoustic guitar instrumental ‘Joni‘ (110½bpm) (Mass Records FOO 2T, via Pinnacle), flipped by the similar though more chimingly picked jerkily jazzy ‘Taxi‘ (110¾-111bpm) . . . The Farm’s ‘Stepping Stone (Ghost Dance Mix)’ (107½bpm) was uninformatively labelled on promo and in fact is on Produce Records (MILK 101) . . . The Pasadenas ‘Love Thing’ proves to be remixed by Bruce Forest & Paul Wright, its commercial pressing (CBS PASA T4) being A-sided as on promo by their First Love Mix (108¼bpm) but coupled with a fractionally slower instrumental First Day Of Spring Mix, plus the lushly harmonised jerkily lurching ‘He’ll Give You All‘ (82bpm) . . . Blaze’s ‘So Special’ on its commercial pressing is A-sided by a now slow intro lacking, different longer So So Mix (119½bpm), conversely with a slow introed 12-inch Radio Edit and new Instrumental (both also 119½bpm), plus the unchanged ‘Mission’ . . . Lisa Stansfield’s unfashionably frantic ‘What Did I Do To You?’ — surely a stronger, more coherent, soulful and above all slower song than this would be better suited to the UK market right now? — is apparently due as part of an EP, which has not been promoed . . . Lisa Stansfield actually supplies backing vocals to a Blue Zone produced cover version of her own ‘Affection‘ by Liaz, the only act left with Big Life by the once again independent Kool Kat label — whose next releases, all from Detroit, will be newies by KAOS, Rhythim Is Rhythim, and Model 500, plus a ‘Retro Techno’ compilation album of original techno classics . . . Sunshine & Thunder Records and West Yorkshire’s local Events magazine are jointly releasing a Cut 90 series of compilation cassettes to promote the new wave of dance and indie talent emerging in Leeds, the first 40 minute, £3.99 edition called ‘Rize’ featuring EZE & Boy Wonder (aka Nightmares On Wax), Breaking The Illusion, Mad Love, N.M.T., Ictus, Mike Hirst, and the Bridewell Taxis (available from Snowshine Ltd, Unit 22b, 31 Aire Street, Leeds LS2 4HT) . . . Sleeping Bag Records’ rap acts EPMD, Just Ice, Stezo, Nice & Smooth, and Cash Money & Marvelous have a variety of their videos featured on a 50 minute, £9.99 ‘Video Rap Pack’ (Wienerworld WNR 1069, via Parkfield Entertainment) . . . Allan Campbell (keen to hear from pluggers on 031-343 3653) presents a new dance biased ‘The Duke’ show Sundays 7-10pm on Edinburgh’s Radio Forth RFM 97.3FM, interviewing all the stars too . . . No Way F.C. 90 hold their first Thursday of the month ‘hip soul and mellow beats’ night this week (May 3) at The Brain in London’s Wardour Street (opposite the Swiss Centre), with guest DJ Roy The Roach plus regulars Phil Asher, John Hines, ‘Young’ Paul Williams . . . The Tribal Dance Organisation brings A Touch Of Summer to Bristol Studio this Friday (4) with Carl Cox, Dom T, DJ Sam, Easy Groove Shane and many other artistic attractions . . . Soul II Soul celebrate the first anniversary of their Friday residency at Brixton’s The Fridge this week . . . Craig & Marcus’s monthly Liberation, with big name DJ guests, is presumably at Northfleet’s Red Lion this Saturday . . . Decadence and Synergy combine for a 6pm-2am rave on Bank Holiday Monday (7) at Kentish Town’s Town & Country Club, featuring The Shamen and Orbital live plus DJs ‘Evil’ Eddie Richards, Kid Batchelor, Mr C, Steve Bicknell, Stika and other sound manipulators . . . Miss Bliss, Wendy K, Hannah Ford, Christina Raven and Vie Marshall are the muthas presenting Muthaland Mondays at Westbourne Green’s Woody’s in Woodfield Road, bringing a female sensibility to the presentation of rap in a “non-sexist, non-violent and non-racist environment” . . . Gary Marson has slowed down to bassy and beaty tempos for Below The Beat Wednesdays at the Hippo in Nottingham, where his and Paul O’Wain’s also slower Red Zone Tuesday has by now probably switched from Eden to Venus . . . Mr C and Barney B rave it up on Wednesdays at Daventry’s free admission Beach Comber, and Friday late nights (10pm-6am) at Coventry’s Vine St . . . Steve Briers’ Thursday is the upfront night at Haverfordwest’s Minnies, down by the riverside . . . DJ Jon and Urbania claim their Wild Life Thursday at Players is the best house night in Bath . . . Dave Downes and Martin Rayner reckon their “rampant rave” Tuesdays and soul/dance/house Thur/Fri/Sat/Sundays make Trax the hottest, most happenin’ venue in Basildon . . . Yin Yan’s Friday Dance Crazy rave, with weekly guests, is in the civilised surroundings of Bournemouth’s The Academy . . . Berlins in Derby’s Beckett Street features a Saturday lunchtime session with veteran soul DJ Den Mac spinning ‘modern soul’ to the accompaniment of sporting videos and cheap liquor (info courtesy of his mum!) . . . James Brown, now that he’s been released from jail, is working off a period of community service by counselling troubled teenagers . . . Martin Freeland, the secretive creator of ‘Way Out West’, has given up concealing his identity and is actually PA-ing as Man With No Name! . . . KICKIN’!
RHYTHMATIC, comprised of familiar faces Mark Gamble (left) from Krush and Leroy Crawford from T-Cut-F, both early Midlands house pioneers, have added another new twist to the story about their hot ‘Take Me Back‘ electro instrumental, confessing they called the original promo’s label 0742 Records deliberately to create a scam, using the Sheffield telephone area code number as its name because of all the attention that city has been receiving as a music making centre. Apparently, the result was that major labels sent scouts to scour Sheffield for the non-existent label, when all along the single was scheduled for full release this week on Birmingham’s Network Records (NWKT 8) — now, ironically, with a new A-side re-edit of the original version by, in fact, FON Force’s Robert Gordon, from Sheffield!
Reviewed by James Hamilton and Jay Strongman
JAZZ & THE BROTHERS GRIMM ‘Casanova (Raving Hell Mix)’ (124bpm) (Tam Tam Records TTT 024, via Savage)
Remixed yet again and out now for a third time, this infectiously squawked Coffee girl group oldie reviving hip house-ish bounder (with bursts of male rap) is more excitingly treated than ever, thunderously tumbling and charging, flipped by a more starkly wriggling Rocky Mix (123¾bpm) plus the De La Soul inspired ‘Yellow Can‘ (109½bpm). A likely smash this time!
EN VOGUE ‘Hold On (Extended Version)’ (97¼bpm) (Atlantic A7908T)
As pointed out last week, and borne out by its massive leap up all the dance charts, this Foster McElroy created excellent sultrily jogging purposeful SOS Band-like roller — grittily wailed, growled and cooed by the four girls who wowed Prestatyn and every other audience that have seen them — has suddenly exploded while still on import, and with perfect timing is now out here (Radio Version and 7″ Edit too).
MANTRONIX (Featuring Wondress) ‘Take Your Time’ (Capitol 12CL 573)
Wondress once again wails this specially recorded UK follow-up, a sinuous jiggly jogger funkily drummed in Eric B & Rakim’s ‘Paid In Full’ style through a lovely melodic lilt reminiscent of Leon Ware’s ‘That’s Why I Came To California’, in fadingly segued Club (107¼bpm) and drier Dub (108½bpm) versions, rapper Bryce Luvah alone fast talking the flip’s jerkily racing hip house ‘Don’t You Want More (Club Version)‘ (122bpm), much faster than the LP version.
VARIOUS ‘Going Back To Basics!‘ (Swedish SWEMIX 12TEK42)
About for a while but not the easiest of imports to find, this five track EP is presented on side one by JJ with the powerful chunkily chugging, girl gasped, Philly vibes flavoured NATURAL EXPERIENCE ‘Don’t Leave Me (I’m With U)’ (107¾bpm) and frantically scratching Todd Terry-ish QUAKER STATE ‘Alternative Commercial‘ (121¾bpm), or on side two by Stonebridge with the monstrously beefy bass thudded ‘French Kiss’-ish DENNIZ POP ‘Visions‘ (120¼bpm), burblingly scurrying OUT OF VISION ‘Yo!‘ (124¼bpm) and twittery throbbing KARMA ‘Nobody‘ (120bpm).
EXOCET ‘Lethal Weapon’ (122½bpm) (Cast Records CATT 010, via 081-471 3209)
The East Ham label’s biggest success to date looks like being this doubtless Orbital and Guru Josh inspired (though with no spacey saxophone!) repetitive shuffling and loping simple acid house rave instrumental, flipped by the funky drum fluttered and questioning girl nagged twittery ‘Sweet Talk‘ (127bpm), and washing machine style bleeping ‘Safety Zone‘ (121½bpm).
DR. BAKER ‘KAOS’ (Desire WANTX 28)
Jointly created by Danish DJ Kenneth Baker and both medically and classically trained session musician Dr. Illinton (hence the act’s name), this somewhat 1988-like samples woven but spirited jittery bounding thudder seems to be pleasing ravers, here in its previously imported though retitled 5:36 Baby Mix (126¾bpm), 5:46 Original German Sausage Mix (127¾-128bpm), 3:27 Radio Mix (126¾-127bpm), and lurching slower pshta pshta-ed 5:02 2 Danes On Acid Mix (118½-118¼bpm), a remix also being due with one side revamped by Guru Josh and the other by Trevor Fung.
DOUG LAZY ‘Let The Rhythm Pump (Remix)’ (120¼bpm) (Atlantic A7919T)
Only on single sided promo so far, Paul Dakeyne and Steve Anderson’s remix of the languidly rapping oldie adds an audience applause echoing percussively thumping backbeat (Edit too).
COLDCUT featuring Queen Latifah ‘Find A Way’ (99¼bpm) (Ahead Of Our Time CCUT 8T)
Surprisingly dull juddery thundering jolter angrily rapped by Latifah with some reggae-ish accents (Instrumental and Acappella too), plus the “yeah” and James Brown “funky” prodded funkily drummed jittery driving instrumental ‘Ride The Pressure (Plenty Of Fun Mix)‘ (111¼bpm).
SYBIL featuring Salt-n-Pepa ‘Crazy 4 U’ (US Next Plateau Records Inc. NP50115)
Attractively sung joltingly rolling swingbeat jiggler remixed in London by Tony King, with DJ Mark The 45 King’s drum beat contributions in the Double King Side’s Double King Club and Funky 45 Radio (101¼bpm), but not in the Swing Beat Side’s Swing It Higher Club and Swing Beat Radio (104bpm), or the lurching LP Version (101½bpm). The more prosaically spelt and less good value UK pressing, ‘Crazy For You’ (101bpm) (PWL Records PWLT 53), retitles Swing It Higher Club as the A-side’s R&B Mix, Double King Club as King To King Mix, and has an R&B Instrumental Mix the same length as Swing Beat Radio, somehow making all three a consistent, slower, BPM here.
54-46 ‘Ooh Boy (Vocal)’ (96¾bpm) (Mango Street 12MNS 739)
The daughter of Toots Hibbert (leader of the Maytals, whose classic ’54-46 That’s My Number’ gives this act its name) piercingly wailing and gurgling the Rose Royce oldie to a Sly & Robbie produced funkily swaying jiggle beat, with its ‘Ooh Boy Dub Wise (Drum & Bass)’ and Acapella Mixes too.
YIN YANG ‘Oh-One (Oh-Too Mix)’ (123¾bpm) (Rumour Records RUMAT 12, via Pacific)
Candy Flip created instrumental double-sider coupling this cheerful acidically galloping raver with the synths bleeped and whistled speedily bounding though less vigorous DAYGLO DREAMS ‘Arcadia (Head Mix)‘ (123¼bpm), both acts being yet further alter egos of Ric Anderson-Peet and Dizzie Dee.
DAL ‘Strings On A Monster Bass (Monster Club Mix)’ (121¾bpm) (D.A.L RRYT 10, via Rough Trade)
David Aihe created beefily booming bass rumbled and scratchy simple synth chorded thudding instrumental chugger with Hamilton Bohannon type backing percussion and other rhythm breaks, strongest and already hottest in its more directly driving Monster Dub Mix (121½bpm).
A.T.C. ‘It Ain’t Over (Extended Mix)’ (124¼bpm) (SBK.One 12SBK 7009)
Chicago rappers Ice and TMc stutter and spit an apparently Steve ‘Silk’ Hurley created jittery frenetic hip house leaper with twittery acidic twinges, flipped by its equally vocal UK Dub Mix (123½bpm) and a more routinely lurching slow wordy HipHop Mix (106½bpm).
Frankie “Bones” Presents BONESBREAKS Volume 5 (US Underworld Records AP 144)
The latest eight-tracker in Frankie’s simple beats and breaks concocted series seems hottest for the shufflingly loping quite attractive ‘The Roxbury Jam’ (124bpm), other grooves being the squiggly thumping ‘Bones Breakdown 6‘, fierce funky drum thrashed ‘Janet’s Revenge‘, and 1988 style ‘Check This Out’ meets ‘French Kiss’-ish ‘At My House (Medley # 2)‘ (all 121½bpm), obviously UK aimed densely juddering ‘I’m Still An Acid Ted‘ (119½bpm), lightly swirling ‘I See The Madness‘ (124½bpm), traffic fatality news item introed synth chorded stuttery jittering ‘And The Break Goes Again (Italia Mix)‘ (122¾bpm), jittery throbbing monotonous ‘In Control & Effect‘ (121¼bpm).
UNIQUE 3 ‘Weight For The Bass (The Safe Chill Mixture)’ (122¾bpm) (10 Records TENR 298)
Sparsely booming, throbbing and pattering nervy more hip house-ish vocal version of their current hit, with its stark Bonus Beats (123½bpm), coupled by the still superior jerky pure hip hop ‘Musical Melody‘ (118¾bpm) plus now also their thrummingly remixed old ‘The Theme (Unique Re-Edit)’ (120¾bpm).
QUEEN LATIFAH + DE LA SOUL ‘Mamma Gave Birth To The Soul Children (The Open University Remix)’ (107¾bpm) (Gee Street GEET 26R)
Ponderously chugging jittery beats driven ‘Cross The Track’-ish remix in Vocal and Instrumental Mixes.
PUSH PULL ‘Africa’ (122bpm) (Deep End SWIM 1, via Greyhound)
Twittery ticking electronic jitterer with an Electribe 101-ish wailing girl and breathily muttering guy repeating the title through a piping synth melody, to make what’s claimed as afro-house (apparently from the Bronx), with more percussive Future Primitive and shorter Mau Mau Mixes (both 121¾bpm) too.
TRANSIENT featuring Sherman Benton ‘Higher’ (US Sonic Sound SBS 1217)
Moaning and speedily flurrying percussive sparse house flier, not unlike the old ‘washing machine’ style, in Club Mix (128½-127½bpm), Vocal Sample Mix (127-125¾bpm), Knight Writers Instrumental Mix (128½-128bpm), and Dub Mix (128-126½bpm) versions.
AGE OF CHANCE ‘Playing With Fire’
ICE CUBE ‘Amerikkka’s Most Wanted’
HOW AND LITTLE ‘Jammin Breaks’
CODE 6 ‘Code 6’
THE HOUSE CREW ‘Dance To The House’
FATIMA FEATURING MC MACK ‘You Broke My Heart’
QUEEN LATIFAH ‘Come Into My House’
P LOVE AND BLUE ‘Time In The Studio’
PUBLIC ENEMY ‘Fear Of A Black Planet’ (Def Jam Recordings 466281 1)
Tracks and short bridging interludes crammed album, in which less quantity and more quality might have been preferable, with the funky samples punctuated jerkily urgent hip house-ish ‘Can’t Do Nuttin’ For Ya Man’ (117½bpm), typical excitingly churning ‘Revolutionary Generation‘ (116½bpm), infectiously rolling and scratching ‘Leave This Off Your Fu*Kin Charts‘ (111¼bpm),’ slyly drawled ‘Pollywanacraka‘ (99bpm), wordily jittering ‘B Side Wins Again‘ (108¾bpm), angrily churning ‘War At 33⅓‘ (113½bpm), funkily lurching ‘Fear Of A Black Planet‘ (101½bpm), fiercely scrubbing ‘Who Stole The Soul?‘ (115bpm), juddery rolling then reggae-ish ‘Anti-Nigger Machine‘ (101¼bpm-98¾bpm) and segued frantic ‘Burn Hollywood Burn‘ (116bpm), typical flurrying ‘Power To The People‘ (126¼bpm), De La Soul-ish rhythm looping short ‘Final Count Of The Collision Between Us And The Damned‘ (112bpm), amusing radio ‘phone-in overdubbed short ‘Incident At 66.6FM‘ (113½bpm), Soul II Soul plugging slow ‘Reggie Jax‘ (74½bpm), ‘Champ’ scratching murky ‘Brothers Gonna Work It Out‘ (105½bpm), currently 12-inched ‘911 Is A Joke’ (103½bpm), last year’s ‘Welcome To The Terrordome’ (110¾bpm), and the year old Motown issued ‘Fight The Power’ (106bpm), still the best thing on the album.
ROBERT OWENS ‘Visions’ (120bpm) (4th + B’way 12BRW 170)
The Fingers Inc singer soulfully intones, worries and moans this Frankie Knuckles and David Morales produced, Satoshi Tomiie and Eric Kupper keyboards tinkled, jittery pulsing deep house canterer (here in its M*K Mix, Doped Up Instrumental and Dreamy Version), but the song never really develops into anything more than a mesmeric mood, for those in the right frame of mind.
SENSI ‘I Beg U The Mike (The SweMix Version)’ (119½bpm) (Tam Tam Records TTT022)
The 19-year-old Stevenage raised rapper cites Roxanne Shanté as her inspiration but sounds like her own huskier woman, SweMix-ed on the A-side in a James Brown brass prodded funkily bounding hip house strider with its Instrumental (120¼bpm), or as originally recorded on the AA side in a different freakier jerkily chanted jittery Fliptronic Mix with its Instrumental (both 119½bpm).
