May 26, 1990: Soul II Soul, Eric B & Rakim, Georgia Jones, Yazz, The Chimes

BEATS & PIECES

EASTWEST, better late than never, this week have finally got around to releasing Solid Gold Easy Amex featuring Red Box ‘Enjoy’, still in its Paul Oakenfold Future Mix and Golden Lay Original versions as reviewed nine weeks ago when first promoed! . . . Cooltempo, using original Dutch pressings as promos, have released D-Shake ‘Yaaaaaaaaaah’/’Techno Trance’ (COOLX 213) . . . Paula David is the now fully credited singer on Volume Ten’s ‘Pride’, commercial pressings reversing the order of its mixes, making More Than Special the A-side . . . ‘Missing You’, from their new album, is apparently scheduled as a future Soul II Soul single — its guest vocalist, Kym Mazelle will be touring the USA and Japan with them this summer and has been working with Jazzie B on tracks for her own next album . . . Greg Fenton, also DJ at Manchester’s Spice, is building a mailing list with a difference for the carefully targeted new club promotion company, Soft (1st Floor, St. Margaret’s Chambers, S Newton Street, Manchester M1 1HL, telephone 061-236 4138), only promoting self confessed “soul-less dance” — any form of dance music that does not come from a soul background, like new beat, hard beat, electronic body music, euro dance, electro rap — and needs convincing by DJs that their club music policy is appropriate before they qualify for inclusion . . . MC Rubber Ronski’s steadily chugging strange rap adaptation of its composer Jon Moss’s original version of Jesus Loves You’s ‘After The Love’, now about in a tidier remix by Terry Farley as Rubberman ‘Rubberman (Boys Own Mix)‘ (118bpm), is flipped by the busier original ‘Rubberman Rock Da House‘ (117½bpm) that was white labelled last winter on Crew-Cuts . . . Adam & Eve remixed the breathily crooned Ross & Demelza (84½bpm) A-side of The Beloved ‘Time After Time’, while the flip’s Leslie Lyrics toasted reggae dubwise Muffin Mix (87bpm) and lazily swirling instrumental Through The Round Window (86½bpm) were by The Little Sisters . . . Johnny Gill ‘Rub You The Right Way’ in its LP Version should be 111¾bpm (and Short Version 111½bpm) . . . Dream Frequency ‘Live The Dream‘ (123¾bpm) is also in an emptier more sinewy Dream The Dream Mix (124bpm) and a virtually tempoless ambient ‘Dreamscape 1‘ (31½bpm) version, with the girls chanted jauntily jumping hip house tempo ‘Feel It‘ (125bpm) too . . . Beats Per Minute that may be useful for pop jocks include Kylie Minogue ‘Better The Devil You Know (The Mad March Hare Mix)‘ (120bpm), New Kids On The Block ‘Cover Girl (12″ Remix)‘ (122bpm), Paula Abdul ‘Opposites Attract (Street Mix)‘ (117bpm), Depeche Mode ‘Policy Of Truth (Capitol Mix/Pavlov’s Dub)’ (114bpm), Natalie Cole ‘Wild Women Do (Power/Underground Wacko Mixes)’ (120½bpm), Talk Talk ‘It’s My Life (Tropical Love Forest Mix)‘ (127¼bpm), B52’s ‘Roam (12″ Remix)‘ (133bpm), Marc Almond ‘The Desperate Hours (Extended Flamenco Mix)‘ (121bpm), Propaganda ‘Heaven Give Me Words (Honey In Heaven)‘ (97bpm) . . . Jon Williams brings his upfront Euro sounds this Friday (25), and then the last Friday of every month, to the oddly named (but 1,800 capacity) Stroud Subscription Rooms in Stroud centre . . . DJ Kid ‘DFM’ Smurf plus guests jock at the new Meltdown Fridays in Leicester’s Reflections, St James Street off Humberstone Gate (wear what you like) . . . ‘Weight For The Bass’ hit makers Unique 3 and DJ Herbe-EE (The Rave DJ) host the fortnightly “Energy” starting this Saturday (26), 10pm-2am, in Bradford’s new look Palm Cove Club, Hollings Road . . . Yeovil has a soul, funk and jazz ‘Summer Fling’ this weekend with Chris Dinnis, Bob Smith and Jim Hedges jocking at Dukes Nightclub on Saturday night, before joining John C at The King’s Arms for Sunday lunchtime . . . BBG PA this Saturday at Brixton’s The Fridge, where the following evening (Sunday 6pm-midnight) Powerjam 90 features DJs Norman Jay, Johnny Walker, Dave Pearce, Madhatter Trevor, Chris Forbes, George K, DJ Digger, Alan Russell, and various personal appearances — however, the really hot night there is likely to be Bank Holiday Monday (28), when, following their Brixton Academy gig, Eazy-E and N.W.A. paartay with Tim Westwood, DJ Biznizz, Mark Anderson, Soul II Soul’s DJ Crazy, and “a number of extraordinarily special guests” (500 public tickets available on the door that night only at 10.30pm) . . . Eazy-E, N.W.A. and guests London Posse, Demon Boyz, MC Mell’o’ then head for Birmingham’s Hummingbird on Tuesday (29) . . . The Club Chart still having a high entry threshold (although the real log jam has moved to the Top 201), last week’s Bubblers that previously might have been expected to make the 100 included 4105, Rubberman, Fluke, Cool Down Zone, (New York’s) Sweet Sensation, Royal Orchestra, BBG featuring Dina Taylor, Frankie ‘Bones’ presents Bonesbreaks Volume 5, Jesus Loves You (Land Of Oz Mix), Moccasoul, My Bloody Valentine, Gaggia & Visona, Last Tango.

SOUL II SOUL ‘Vol II-1990 A New Decade’ (10 Records DIX 90)
Much better and more consistent than ‘Club Classics’, this imminently massive album relies largely for its vocals on several featured female singers yet ironically its hottest tracks look like being the terrific compulsively clopping and lurching instrumental ‘Time (Untitled)’ (102bpm), and Fab 5 Freddy and Jamie B chatted lazily tapping drum rumbled ‘Our Time Has Now Come‘ (95¾bpm), the ladies contributing Lamya’s lovely piano plonked sweetly wriggling ‘In The Heat Of The Night‘ (101¾bpm) and birdsong washed steadily swaying ‘Love Come Through‘ (92bpm), Kym Mazelle’s soulfully jogging and ultimately mesmeric ‘Missing You‘ (93bpm), the girl group chorused percussively jiggling ‘1990 A New Decade‘ (105¼bpm), Marcia Lewis’s traffic effects introed snappily strutting ‘People‘ (115bpm) and kiddies chorused Christmas hit ‘Get A Life’ (101¼bpm), Victoria Wilson James’s current hit ‘A Dreams A Dream’ (103¼bpm), plus the Courtney Pine soprano saxed instrumental ‘Courtney Blows’ (92½bpm).

ERIC B. & RAKIM ‘Let The Rhythm Hit ‘Em’ (110bpm) (US MCA Records MCA-24026)
So eagerly (and long) awaited that it has instantly exploded, their DJ Mark The 45 King remixed typically fast talking, swirling and churning gruff jiggler jolts bumpily through its 12″ Vocal Version Remix and perhaps more funkily rolling 45 King Club Mix (with an A Cappella too), the hottest hip hopper for quite a while!

GEORGIA JONES ‘Let The Music Play (Club Mix)’ (119¾bpm) (Mercury MERX 323)
Out fully in three weeks, Freddy Bastone’s brilliantly breezy house remake of Shannon’s influential (in the States) electro oldie is not ‘electro’ at all, more Electribe 101-ish, with skipping bass, synthetic strings and other bubbly elements all darting and dancing around the central lightly wailing and scatting Georgia, flipped by her scatted though otherwise basically lyricless Dub and Jazz Mixes.

YAZZ ‘Treat Me Good’ (118½bpm) (Big Life YAZZ PROMO 5)
An extremely credible return, so far only on single-sided promo (with an etched flip) ahead of June 11 release, this wah-wah guitar, brass and organ punctuated beefily booming infectious stomper produced by Soul II Soul associated Simon Law was co-penned by him, Yazz and Ruby Turner, their happily harmonised wailing lyric being naggingly repetitive but it does drive home the glorious groove.

THE CHIMES ‘The Chimes’ (US Columbia C 46008)
Including most of the many different good songs that have so far been scattered across their first few singles, this superbly soulful Pauline Henry wailed impressive debut album will thus seem largely familiar to fans already though no less listenable for that, there being not a dud on it, with the gorgeous piano rippled (reminiscent of Bobby Goldsboro’s ‘Summer The First Time’) slinkily rolling ‘Don’t Make Me Wait’ (80½bpm), Timmy Thomas tempo sandwiched undulating ‘Stay‘ (93½bpm), current U2 covering (here rather faster) ‘I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For‘ (87bpm), wriggly driving ‘Heaven‘ (112¾bpm), Jazzie B & Nellee Hooper produced tensely weaving ‘True Love‘ (93bpm) and jauntily trotting ‘1-2-3‘ (109½bpm), sinuously lurching ‘Underestimate‘ (101bpm), huskily drifting ‘Love Comes To Mind‘ (71 bpm), chunkily jogging ‘Stronger Together‘ (94½bpm), tortuous slow ‘Love So Tender’ (25½-51bpm).

DR. BLACKSTEIN ‘Give It Up (Club Mix)’ (121½bpm) (Oh’Zone Records ZONE 002)
Infectiously shuffling and leaping from the start, this familiar snippets woven frisky hip house jiggler has chanted male choruses (and only a few bursts of actual rap) answering and ultimately taking over from some Diana Ross-ishly intoned delicate verses, with sparsely stripped down Blackstein’s Basement and more densely vocal De Original flipside mixes (119¾bpm).

SATOSHI TOMIIE featuring Arnold Jarvis ‘And I Loved You (12″ Red Zone Mix)’ (119bpm) (ffrr FXR 134)
The mournfully moaned subtle atmospheric deep house throbber, originally in its co-producer Frankie Knuckles’ Classic Club, Radio (118¾bpm), Dub (118½bpm) and instrumental And I Dreamed You (119¼bpm) Mixes, now given a more beefily driving though less haunting David Morales remix with his own thumping percussion plus keyboardist Eric Kupper augmenting the previously sole instrumentalist Satoshi, in sparse electro Red Zone Dub and thrumming (vocal) Bonus Beats too, still with some tinkling vibes and other jazzy touches.

CIRCUIT ‘Won’t You Shelter Me’ (121bpm) (Cooltempo COOLX 207)
Soulfully whinneyed and worried by Chris Patrick, as before when Circuit were on producers Jolley Harris Jolley’s Collision label, this vigorous wriggly flurrying hip house tempo jiggler is quite differently treated in the AA-side’s ambiently introed contrasting deep house style Digital Mix (120¾bpm), making for good value as it’s hard to choose between the two.

SHOCKING BLUE ‘Venus (BHF Remix)’ (126bpm) (Champion CHAMP 12-253)
Intriguingly remixed by Italy’s Max Art of DJ Company, responsible also for the current Don Pablo’s Animals remake of the same song, this not surprisingly is a similar “wooh yeah” prodded vigorously smacking hip house-ish revamp of the genuine 1970 article, coupled though if anything even more like Don Pablo’s Animals by local Dutchman Rend Van Der Weyde’s frantic Red Bullet Remix (128-127¼bpm) and its Red Bullet Edit, plus 1970’s guitars chugged Original Mix (128¼bpm, all the above BPMs fluctuating fractionally), still potent at parties.

JEFF REDD ‘Come And Get Your Lovin” (112½bpm) (MCA Records MCAT 1413)
His album’s hottest track newly remixed, with Hip Hop Mix, Instrumental, Club Version and Acappella, this Arts & Crafts produced jumpily jittering breezy hip hop swingbeat fusion makes less immediate use of its Chubb Rock guest rap and ‘Champ’ punctuations, remaining just in the middle now, but features instead more of the raspingly honked sax.

PEOPLE PEOPLE Featuring KAREN ANDERSON ‘Are You Spoken For?’ (97bpm) (Cooltempo COOLX 205)
Designed for coming steamy hot summer nights, this Aleems produced Soul II Soul-type tempoed slinky swayer has a sexy girl muttering and sweetly cooing with a butch bass guy mumbling sweet nothings in reply, more concisely in its Single Version while the sax tootled weaving good ‘Is He Spoken For? (Sax Mix)‘ is basically instrumental featuring just Erik Nuri.

CALLOWAY ‘I Wanna Be Rich’ (114½bpm) (US Solar 4Z9 74503)
Midnight Star’s Reggie & Vincent Calloway have had a huge US pop hit with this Timmy Regisford remixed percussively rattled loose limbed loping catchy singalong chant, featuring bursts of “rich” rap appropriately by Rich Nice, in five mixes of which the jauntiest is an almost calypso-ish Extended Mix reminiscent of Lionel Richie’s ‘All Night Long (All Night)’. If it’s not 1990’s beat of the street here, that our loss.

ALISHA WARREN ‘Discover Me (Ride On Time Mix)’ (99½bpm) (RCA FIND 1)
Not the Black Box rip-off that its subtitle might mislead one to expect, producer Paul Witts and Rob M’s remix of the two months old sultry jogger makes it into a more starkly tapping jiggly swirling plaintive swayer building repetitive intensity, with a jerky instrumental Ride On Sax Mix.

BILLY STRICK ‘Give Me Your Love Girl’ (120½bpm) (US New Image NIR 302)
Producer Darryl Payne’s label returns with this Carlton Carter penned/co-produced quaveringly sung old fashioned Seventies Philly Soul flavoured throbbing fluid canterer, nicely arranged with slick strings and some soaring harmonies, not quite in the Richard Rogers league although close, flipped by its rawer dubwise Strickly Cool Music Mix and a Radio Version (120¾bpm).

MAUREEN WALSH ‘Thinking Of You’ (96¼bpm) (Urban URBX 55)
Not due fully for a fortnight but — you guessed! — far too hot to hold, this Soul II Soul-ishly jiggled sweetly cooing Rockhouse produced revival of the Sister Sledge classic is remixed by Cassroc from Krush, with Top Billin’’s Key Won suddenly erupting two-thirds through the Rock Steady Mix (and lusher 7″ Edit) to add more bounce to the ounce for a harder raggamuffin rap finale, not in the semi-instrumental pleasantly drifting and tinkling BBG-ish Dreaming Of You and even more ambiently washed Dream Mixes.

THE PASADENAS ‘Love Thing (Inspirational Mix)’ (105½bpm) (CBS PASAQT 4)
Jauntily jiggling to the same groove as before but with a fruity short trombone solo midway and then a lead swappingly rapped last half, the boys’ own remix is flipped by Bruce Forest & Paul Wright’s dynamically stripped down bare bass and drum driven Leap Free Mix (106½bpm).

THE FAMILY STAND ‘Chain’ (Atlantic WX 349)
Surprisingly disappointing looked at from a floor filling viewpoint, their album’s best dancer remains the Jazzie B mixed huge ‘Ghetto Heaven (Remix)’ (104bpm), standing way out from the quite pleasant pent up jittery swingbeat ‘Only’ (105¼bpm), overwrought soulfully squalled but rolling pop-ish ‘Sweet Liberation‘ (97½bpm), moodily weaving instrumental ‘Ovasaxed‘ (87½bpm), Prince-like ‘Avenue Lust‘ (110½bpm), squeakily jiggling ‘Little White, Little Black Lies‘ (114bpm), brassily snapping purple ‘Twisted‘ (113½bpm), schmaltzy tender ‘In Summer I Fall’ (77½bpm), Tina Turner-ish slow rock guitared ‘The Last Temptation’ (81¼bpm), and routine US pop dance ‘Chain’ (126¾bpm).

M.C. SEAN & RANDY ‘I Will Survive (medley with Or Maybe Not)’ (119½bpm) (Champion CHAMP 12-245)
Gloria Gaynor’s hackneyed anthemic hustler in a reasonably soundalike remake, incongruously overdubbed and interspersed by bursts of fast talking gruff male rap, a bit lightweight to be true hip house but probably with pop appeal (in three mixes and an acappella).

SUBLIMINAL AURRA (A Decongestant For The Mind) ‘Ease The Pressure’ (XL Recordings XLT-8, via WEA)
The Brooklyn Funk Essentials (Lenny Dee & Victor Simonelli) created recent import here gains two new mixes to make now a six-tracker, this mystic girl and guy muttered pulser being in its original drain gurgled throbbing Mental Mix (119½bpm) and long tempolessly started then amorphously quivering Hypnotic Trance Mix (119½bpm), with a new more beefily bounding State Of Mind Mix (121¾bpm) and odd short Ambient Mix (122bpm), plus still the ‘Roots’ piano nagged and vibes tinkled jerkily driving ‘No Stoppin’ (Zanzibar Mix)‘ (122¼bpm), and twittery jittering repetitive ‘I Can’t Understand (Metro Mix)‘ (124¼bpm).

JANE CHILD ‘Don’t Wanna Fall In Love’ (108bpm) (Warner Bros W9817T)
Self-penned/produced US pop hit given a slight frisson of interest in that she’s a white girl singing an otherwise fairly routine Teddy Riley remixed swingbeat jiggler, in New Jack Club Swing, Knife Feel Good Mix, and organ stabbed bassily lurching go go-ish T.R. Club-A-Dub versions.

NEW ORDER ‘World In Motion… (E For England)’ (123¾bpm) (Factory/MCA FACX 293)
Drearily groaned but rhythmically quite bright World Cup soccer theme, mixed by Terry Farley & Andy Weatherall using several familiar break beats in the piano plonked then wriggly shuffling No Alla Violenza Mix and football crowd started more vigorously throbbing Carabineri Mix (some Pickering & Park mixes are due to follow).

ERASURE ‘Star’ (Mute Records P12MUTE 111)
Gloomily whinneyed pop bounder on promo (if not proper) 12 inch in zingily rattling old fashioned Hi-NRG William Orbit (123½bpm), bassily throbbing and scratching Mark Saunders (122¾bpm), and totally alternative slow jiggly Gareth Jones (111bpm) mixes.

JOEY NEGRO ‘Do It, Believe It’ (Z Records ZED 001)
Remixed since it first appeared two months ago on Nugroove import (despite — sshhh! — Joey Negro turning out to be merely yet another secret identity of RePublic Records’ Dave Lee, sole owner of this new Z logo), the simple chanting and pattering house strider is here slower in not only the A-side’s new fuller organ chorded and afro introed The Native Mix (116¾bpm) but also its original jazz-funk flavoured Organic Mix (117½bpm) and sparse percussively burbled Jeep Mix (117¾bpm), speeding up however in its other new fluttering and pulsing Raw Mix (119½bpm).
