BEATS & PIECES
SEDA 90, the South Eastern Discotheque Association’s latest annual disco equipment exhibition, is this Sunday (June 3) at Gravesend’s Woodville Halls between noon and 6pm, with the opening ceremony conducted by Stevie V — so don’t be late, if that’s who you want to see! . . . Eternal Records, just to be different, have reverted to the fast disappearing seven inch format for their initially very limited white label promos of the bass and drum jogged extremely soulful Danny Madden ‘Facts Of Life‘ (98bpm), produced and mixed by Dancin’ Danny D, one to look out for . . . Mahesh Bajaj is relaunching the ‘Upfront’ series of dance compilation albums that he started on Serious Records back in 1986, now through his Sarni Lange partnered new label Solid (Sound Of London’s Independent Dance), ‘Upfront One‘ being due on its subsidiary Upfront logo next week with 15 tracks including current UK and Continental releases by such as Don Pablo’s Animals, Pianonegro, Rhythmatic, Musto & Bones, and Critical Rhythm — future singles include a remake of Melba Moore’s ‘This Is It’ by Ruth, and the Italian Jackie Moore’s version of Phil Collins’ ‘I Wish It Would Rain Down’ (club and radio DJ mailing list applications to Solid Records Limited, Unit 30, Sheraton Business Centre, Wadsworth Road, Perivale, Middlesex UB6 7JB, telephone 081-566 7117) . . . Paul Gotel is updating the specialist hip hop/rap and alternative/indie dance DJ mailing lists at Power Promotions (081-746 1210), where the brand new press office is run by Cheryl Flynn . . . Logic’s currently hot ‘The Warning’ will soon be out here on Pacific’s new label Planet Pacific, specialising in the more underground type of dance material, while Vandal’s ‘Laws Of Chance’ EP, warm on import back in February/March mainly for ‘Amazing Grace’, has been picked up here by de/Construction Records . . . Fatman & Stella Mae ‘Release Me’ — whose mixes on the now fully labelled Cue Records pressing turn out to be called Gospel, Techno, and Beatstumental (sic) — has in fact been picked up for further release by ffrr . . . ‘K-Jee’ was promoed and reviewed as being by The Unlimited Orchestra, but finished commercial pressings credit the Cooltempo Unlimited Orchestra . . . Calloway ‘I Wanna Be Rich’, reviewed last week as a Solar import, is out here now on Epic (655515 6) . . . Mr Lee’s ‘Get Busy’ hip house album, reviewed on import three weeks ago, is also out here (Jive HIP 98) . . . Dutch remix wizard Ben Liebrand has a debut album released under his own name within the next month, on Epic . . . ‘La Passionara’, the track that’s really selling The Blow Monkeys’ EP, could well be more beefily remixed with added vocals — but not necessarily for release until incorporated into the follow-up . . . Electribe 101’s next single looks like being a revival of Odyssey’s ‘Inside Out’ . . . Digger presents this Wednesday (30), at his weekly specialist swingbeat and rap Bounced night in Mayfair’s Legends, PAs by Johnny Gill, Glen Goldsmith, Emma Haywoode, and the Licensed To Dance (LTD) dance troupe . . . Balearic DJs like Danny Rampling, Paul Oakenfold, Andy Weatherall, Terry Farley, Rocky & Diesel and Ben & Andy (amongst many) will be jocking on Ibiza at the Ku Club, Summum, Es Paradis, Pacha and Amnesia during the specially organised Ibiza 90 holiday package that runs for your choice of either one or two weeks from this Sunday (June 3), all inclusive (flights/accommodation/club passes) at £226 or £260 (club passes alone at £40 or £50), tickets and full details on 081-845 1695 . . . Rimini’s luxurious El Paradiso club, inspired by Italy’s hosting of the World Cup, is promoting a so-called Euro Club Tour ’90, inviting certain DJs from the competing nations to bring their own club crowds to party (separately, you may be relieved to hear!) on consecutive Thursdays through July, kicking off with Kid Batchelor and cohorts from London’s Confusion, Solaris, Stringfellows (?), and the Café De Paris as the representatives of Great Britain on July 5, followed on subsequent Thursdays by France, Spain and Germany — details of an inclusive £140 four day package for the above named clubs’ members and friends from Musika Inc, 7-8 Gosfield Street, London W I . . . Last week’s bubblers just outside the Club Chart Top 100 included Musto & Bones LP, Rubberman, Fluke, Man Machine featuring Zen, Klymaxx, The Blapps Posse, Frazier Chorus, The Wee Papa Girl Rappers, Tony! Toni! Toné! and Touch Of Soul.
REBEL MC ‘Rebel Music’ (118bpm) (Desire WANTX 31)
Co-produced by the Rebel and Simon Law, this slow starting then cowbell and drums clonked hip house tempo nervily jiggling raggamuffin rap is counterpointed by smoothly moaning Jenni Evans, with jazzy piano and flute doodling through the beats, in Rebel-ism and looser sounding The Article Mixes, sure to be big.
D-SHAKE ‘Yaaaaaaaaaah (Freestyle Club Mix)’ (123bpm) (Cooltempo COOLX 213)
Here in fact abbreviated down to ‘Yaaah’, which isn’t such fun, this instantly kicking more loosely flurrying variation of the shouts prodded frantic Dutch double-sider’s excitingly galloping basic instrumental is now getting increased attention and probably is more ‘commercial’, but just as on import it’s still much less hot than the flip’s fiercer industrially driving ‘Techno Trance’ (123¼bpm), tempolessly starting and pausing in its original Paradise Is Now mix but also here in a useful new Revisited re-edit minus the midway pause.
PIANONEGRO ‘Pianonegro’ (93bpm) (Italian Dance-World Attack DWA 00.13)
In short supply at first although instantly hot for all who have managed to find it, this Robyx created gradually building afro chanted and piano plonked ‘Jingo’/’Going Back To My Roots’-ishly tinged slinkily grooving purposeful jogger (in Long Mix, Radio Edit and piano-less percussive Negro Groove versions) should be huge once it’s more readily available. Incidentally, ‘negro’ in this Italian context is the translation of ‘black’.
RICHARD ROGERS ‘Can’t Stop Loving You’ (106bpm) (BCM Records BCM 450)
Perhaps just too classy for today’s cheapened tastes, this Marshall Jefferson created pure Seventies style — even down to using not only real drums and brass but also real shimmering strings! — smoothly jogging roller is soulfully agonised and breathily scatted in Steppin’, Stepper’s Reunion, Radio, and long Acappella Mixes, not to be missed by anyone who thinks on reading this they might like it. You will!
MILIRA ‘Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology) (12″ Version)’ (97½bpm) (Motown/Apollo Theatre Records ZT 43680)
A truly superb sultry Anita Baker-ish jiggly tapping revival of Marvin Gaye’s classic, now even more appropriate to our times than ever, Milira swooping and scatting with screeching electric fiddle and mellow sax echoing her moves in the long rhythm breaks (Radio Version and Instrumental flip), fractionally slower than the import.
BLACK BOX ‘Everybody Everybody (Le Freak Mix)’ (117½bpm) (de/Construction Records PT 43716)
Not noticeably based in any way on Chic’s ‘Le Freak’ (unlike Jazzi P’s newie!), this blandly striding A-side mix of the lightweight wailer is competent enough but hardly memorable, the flip’s more attractively cantering Love Unlimited Edit (117bpm) having a far catchier vocal melody that does stand out (drifting Rockapella too) — however, jocks of discernment now seem to be playing instead the ‘Dreamland’ album’s slinkily pulsing remake of EWF’s ‘Fantasy‘ (98bpm).
New York’s SWEET SENSATION ‘Child Of Love (Rock The House Mix)’ (124¼bpm) (Acco B8983 SAM)
Renamed here presumably so as not to clash with our own mid-Seventies ‘Sad Sweet Dreamer’ group (who were guys), this Ted Currier produced shrill girl trio have a US hit galloping Hi-NRG revival of Diana Ross & The Supremes’ ‘Love Child‘ which apparently has just been released here too, although the only track that’s been promoed is this unrelated driving rhythm chugger punctuated by effects, samples and King Shameek’s scratches, but — apart possibly from the odd comment — not noticeably much by the girls! I can’t say I’m complaining.
KOOL MOE DEE ‘African Pride’ (US Jive 1336-1-JD)
A strong six track EP led off on Side A by three mixes of the menacingly rapped though jauntily chugging, Mohawks ‘Champ’ organ punctuated and Baron Ricks scratched ‘God Made Me Funke’ (spelt “F-U-N-K-E!”), in its New Mix, Original Mix and Instrumental (104bpm), flipped by the James Brown “I’m Black And I’m Proud” chant adapting starkly strutting ‘Say It Loud (African Proud)‘ (111bpm), Teddy Riley co-produced ‘Soul Makossa’ beat based jolting sombre ‘Pump Your Fist‘ (111bpm) and ‘Thank You (Falletinme Be Mice Elf Agin)’ beat based jiggling angry ‘Knowledge Is King (Remix)‘ (107¾bpm).
DREAM IN GOA ‘Shine On You Crazy Diamond’ (Italian Pre-Release ST 110)
On an unspecified label, this tapping and swaying Soul II Soul-ishly tempoed remake of the languid guitar pinged Pink Floyd tune — likely to attract interest as already used recently, of course, to colour ‘Natural Thing’ by Innocence — is at 45rpm in its Club Long Version (99¼bpm), but flipped at 33⅓rpm by a more tightly tuneful Radio Long Version (99½bpm) and its separately titled ‘Chapora (Do It Yourself)‘ drum, bass and organ rhythm track.
EINSTEIN ‘Are We Ready To Party’ (104¾bpm) (Music Of Life NOTE 36)
Produced by Norman Cook, with namechecking “nuff respects” gratitude from Einstein, this steadily rolling and rumbling unhurried rap has sensible lyrics that brag a bit but are unaggressive (Radio Version and funky Instrumental too), coupled by the DJ Leader 1 produced slyly amusing funky drummed ‘Friday Night & Saturday Morning (1990 Remix)‘ (100bpm).
BEL BIV DEVOE ‘Poison’ (112bpm) (MCA Records MCAT 1414)
New Edition members Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins and Ronnie Devoe’s oddly named (until you know its origin) splinter group is storming the US chart with this Bobby Brown-ish tightly muttered and crooned bright swingbeat jitterer, here in Mental, Smoothed and R&B Mixes, all fairly similar.
WAS NOT WAS ‘Papa Was A Rolling Stone’ (115¼bpm) (fontana WAS 712)
Not even promoed to DJs in this, the mix that hit the pop chart last week, as a much more club credible remix was waiting already in the wings, this still faithfully ‘psyche-soul’ jiggly remake of Norman Whitfield’s Temptations classic is indeed far tougher and more 1990 in its Steve Jervier remixed The Full Rub (115bpm) (WASR 712), chugging and wriggling instrumentally before the gruff vocals join in and a rap suddenly erupts, flipped by a totally different sparsely subdued rapping jittery Richie Rich Remix (114¼bpm) and Richie’s Bass-Apella.
WHITE KNIGHT ‘Get Crazy’ (122¼bpm) (US Jive 1346-1-JD)
Initially rather over familiar seeming, spittingly rapped and stuttered sk’ouse-ish hip house jerker reaching though in Bad Boy Bill’s Club Mix a good long bassy break and in White Knight’s Radio Mix an exciting ‘Shout’ climax, while their Crazy Drummer Instrumental shuffles thumpingly along and the London remixed (by our own) Double Trouble Club Mix (122bpm) hits not surprisingly a less angular jumpy UK hip house rap groove, coupled also by the unrelated though similar more stuttery ‘Clap Your Hands‘ (122¼bpm) in Club and Radio Mixes.
RHYTHMATIC ‘Take Me Back (Robert Gordon 0742 Edit “With Extra Bass”)’ (122¾bpm) (Network NWKT 8)
As previously detailed before pressings were available, Mark Gamble and Leroy Crawford’s early Eighties-type simple breezily surging electro instrumental, originally big on their own 0742 pre-release label, has merely been re-edited for full commercial release by Sheffield’s Robert Gordon with added bass resonance, plus a Robert Gordon Radio Edit and the original Bass-Head Mix as flip, while, now also out separately, Mark & Leroy’s own much more jittery Headstrong Remix – With Bleeps (123bpm) (NWKTR 8) is a possibly even better and certainly beefier double-sider, borrowing (with permission) its bleeps from Separate Minds’ ‘1st Bass’, with a really powerfully smacking twittery 0254 Remix With Feeling (122¾bpm) as flip (0254 being an incomplete telephone area code this time!).
MXM ‘Nothing Compares 2 U (Dove Mix)’ (93¾bpm) (London LONX 267)
Produced by J.T. and the BHF Productions team responsible for ‘Moments In Soul’, ‘Venus’ and others, this moderately soundalike Italian remake of Sinead O’Connor’s international smash adds an inevitably Soul II Soul-ish gently jiggling rhythm to make it more danceable, with a jangling ‘Piano 4 U‘ instrumental and half-speed more Sinead-like Love Mix (47bpm), while ironically it is now rivalled by a similar though more mellow UK cover version sweetly cooed by Helen Shaw, in Club Mix, Roman Mix, and Dub Instrumental,
POWERJAM ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ (95½bpm) (Champion CHAMP 12-252)
SNAP ‘World Power’ (Logic Records 210 682, via BMG)
Their Germany pressed album is pleasant rather than hard hitting, so not perhaps essential, with the UK chart-topping ‘The Power’ (109bpm), corny ‘afro’ chanted ‘Sultana’-ish jiggly chugging ‘Cult Of Snap’ (110bpm), studio talkback introed tensely rolling rap ‘Witness The Strength‘ (100bpm), jaunty light hip house ‘Mary Had A Little Boy‘ (121bpm), ‘Power’ rhythm pattered comically rapped (not for airplay!) ‘Blasé Blasé‘ (108bpm), Public Enemy answering ‘Believe The Hype‘ (121 bpm), attractively tinkling gruffly chatted Clarence Carter-ish ‘I’m Gonna Get You (To Whom It May Concern)‘ (104/52bpm), while the girl wailed and guy rapped chunkily jiggling ‘Ooops Up‘ (103bpm), quoting the title line from ‘Oops Up Side Your Head’ though more Shirley & Company ‘Shame, Shame, Shame’ tempoed, has also been promoed (Arista 613 296 DJ) on a 33⅓rpm white label in three unspecified mixes (one a dub).
TERRY HUNTER ‘Madness’ (US Muzique Records MR004)
A minimalist electro house instrumental four tracker, with its sparsely pulsing title tune in Armando’s House Mix (117¾bpm) and Terry Hunter’s Orig. Mix (117½bpm), plus the Coke bottle clinking ‘Back 2 House (The House Mix)‘ (118½bpm) and twittery hard beat ‘Mind Over Matter (The Mind Mix)‘ (119bpm), all fairly specialist though effective in their way.
KYM MAZELLE ‘Useless (I Don’t Need You Now) (Moody Mix)’ (118½bpm) (Syncopate 12SYX 36)
Norman Cook’s remix may have had the initial mailing list attention as it was released first, but this MFSB flavoured smoothly pushing mellow David Morales remix is the one that immediately attracted most actual sales, giving Kym’s wailing vocal a sophisticated jazzy soul setting, with throbbing largely instrumental Trump and only briefly rhythmic ambient Ivana Mixes too.
SOFT HOUSE COMPANY ‘What You Need…’ (Global Village NOR 2, via Phonogram)
Hanging about on Italian IRMA import since at least last November yet only briefly charting in January, this real ‘sleeper’ (now helping launch a new Phonogram label) is here still in its grand piano plonked jauntily skipping stuttery Original Mix (119¾bpm) and more percussively trotting instrumental …A Little Piano (121¾bpm) variation, plus brand new funkily jiggling Funky Guitar (121bpm) and similar though more loosely jittering Much Needed (121¼bpm) Mixes.
CHAD JACKSON ‘Hear The Drummer Get Wicked’ (108bpm) (Big Wave BWR 36T)
One of Chad’s remixes of ‘The 900 Number’ originally promoed (and intended for release) as an adjunct to DJ Mark The 45 King’s reissued original, but now out under his own name at DJ Mark’s suggestion, this pop chart storming combination of the old Marva Whitney ‘Unwind Yourself sax riff, jiggling Soul II Soul beats and ‘For The Love Of Money’ bass, plus lots more besides, is flipped by its 7-inch Edit and the new jazzy and rattling instrumental ‘High On Life (Live From Manchester)‘ (120½bpm). It may have taken time for the 1987 World DJ Mixing Champion to make his recording debut, but now that he has he’s done it in style.
