BEATS & PIECES
IRELAND’S FIRST ever DJ Convention is on June 18 at the Sands Hotel in Portmarnock, County Dublin (full details from Jim Kenny there on 403635), with a disco equipment exhibition and record fair, a seminar featuring a dozen representatives of major radio stations, record companies, UK and Irish DJs, including our very own James Hamilton – after there’s awards, scratch mix demonstrations by Cutmaster Swift and local champ DJ Mek, and PAs by Sybil, Tongue ‘N’ Cheek, Hazell Dean, Darryl Pandy, Edwin Starr, Odyssey . . . CBS have snapped up the hot Pianonegro ‘Pianonegro’ for the UK . . . MXM ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’, on its UK pressing is in a shorter Dove Edit (93bpm) and a chunkier new Remix (96¼bpm) — likewise, Calloway ‘I Wanna Be Rich’ on UK Epic proves to be only in its Dance Mix and Dance Dub, unfortunately not the catchiest of its treatments . . . ‘Child Of Love (Rock The House Mix)’ by New York’s Sweet Sensation, is out as flip to their US Hi-NRG revival of Diana Ross & The Supremes’ ‘Love Child’ (118½bpm) . . Cool Down Zone’s ‘Heaven Knows’ is 100¾bpm flipped by ‘Come Be My Lover‘ (104bpm) and ‘I Always Seem To Cry‘ (84bpm) . . . New Order’s four dance mixes, promoed across two separate 12-inchers, are only ever due commercially in fade shortened form all together on a single EP, no doubt making the full length promos of value for collectors . . . Bristol’s Fresh Connection have a different apparently “harder” remake due on Reachin’ Records of Rose Royce’s ‘Love Don’t Live Here Anymore‘, to rival the also current Double Trouble treatment . . . £2,000 donated by the Dance Aid Trust has kicked off the Disc Jockeys Kidney Machine Trust Fund to finance purchase of a kidney machine, for use by Barnard Castle’s previously mentioned Mark Watson while needed, and thereafter by South Cleveland Hospital . . . Jim Thompson spins upfront and import soul and house right through the day Monday to Saturday on Manchester’s in-store Radio Top Shop, then joins DJ Fatman Ritson on hardcore acid/indie Fridays at Liverpool’s The Queens, Waterloo, and MC Egghead on Saturdays upstairs at Bootle’s Quadrant Park . . . “Brum is biting back!”, shouts DJ Steve, who with DJ Mark does Dislocation techno/rap/indie/house Thursdays at Edgbaston’s XL’S (no dress restrictions) . . . Steve Hills, hosting ‘It’s Happening’ Fridays at Leytonstone’s The Cube, is pleased to see his old partner in crime Mark Summers doing so well since leaving the gig! . . . Mister ‘M’ (real name Maurice) has hot house/funk/rap/reggae Sunday evenings 8-10.30pm at Melksham’s Bear disco pub, the only venue in West Wiltshire to do so, he claims . . . ‘Big’ John Rodgers has returned to Great Yarmouth’s refurbished Monroes and is apparently packing the place with an upfront dance music policy, four nights a week . . . Swansea’s Plastic Sam is now “takin’ care of biz” at Central Park/Ritzy . . . Paul French, after six years’ residency at Gillingham’s recently sold The Avenue, despite being asked to stay, is looking for a change of upfront venue (on 0634-376834) . . . Bloomsbury brothers Richard & Sean Stewart, just back from a year’s jocking in Tenerife, tip that the hotspots for holidaymakers to check there are the Roxy Bar with DJ Ket Shah, the newly refurbished Paradise Lost with Simon Doward, and Bobbies Bar . . . KICKIN’!
Reviewed by James Hamilton and DJ Streets Ahead
PAUL JACKSON, JR. ‘Out Of The Shadows’ (US Atlantic 82065-1)
Tucked away on this early George Benson-ish jazz guitarist’s pleasant instrumental album and just crying out for a 12 inch remix is the Hank Shocklee & Eric ‘Vietnam’ Sadler co-produced/mixed brilliant jiggly ‘The New Jazz Swing’ (111bpm), fusing swingbeat hip hop rhythms with bursts of lovely gentle jazz guitar to make possibly a ‘Rockit’ for the Nineties — c’mon, Atlantic, do yo’ stuff! — other tracks being the Kirk Whalum saxed jazz-funkily wriggling ‘Encino Shuffle‘ (100bpm), Luther Vandross chorused delicately picked ‘Make It Last Forever‘ (85¼bpm), Tim Owens crooned romantically rolling ‘This Love’s On Me‘ (88bpm), jogging ‘Days Gone By‘ (92bpm), swaying ‘I Want Jesus To Walk With Me‘ (98½bpm), too self consciously “funky” ‘My Thang‘ (112bpm), doodling ‘Road To Everlasting‘ (98/49bpm), slushy ‘All For You’ (69/34½bpm).

CRITICAL RHYTHM featuring Jango Thriller & Vandal ‘It Could Not Happen’ (85bpm) (Network NWKT 9)
Brooklyn Funk Essentials created EP, previously a short lived chart climber on Nugroove import (which suggests fashionability rather than actual substance), with this breathily sinuous reggae tinged slowie in its Essential Trance Hall Mix and Version, plus the not very danceable emptily pulsing Indian flavoured ‘Eastern Breeze (Authentic Mix)‘ (119bpm), flipped by the Angelique featuring perhaps more useable girl and guy muttered jiggly trotting ‘Fall Into A Trance (Brooklyn Funk Essential Mix)‘ (122bpm), and its virtually rhythmless Alternative Ambient Mix (61bpm). Meanwhile, a Q & Review created new more beefily rumbling and reggae boosted ‘It Could Not Happen (Dance Hall Daze Remix)‘ (96bpm) (NWKTR9) is flipped by its Dance Hall Daze Instrumental Mix and the above ‘Fall Into A Trance (Brooklyn Funk Essential Mix)’.
ICE CUBE ‘AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted’ (US Priority Records SL57 120)
Largely created with Public Enemy’s Eric Sadler and Keith Shocklee, the relentlessly foul mouthed N.W.A. rapper’s tracks and interludes crammed album has the exciting P’funkily chugging ‘The Nigga Ya Love To Hate’ (109¾bpm), similar more jerkily jolting already 12-inched ‘AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted‘ (107¾bpm), funkily rolling ‘Rollin’ Wit The Lench Mob‘ (103¼bpm), amusing jauntily jiggling ‘A Gangsta’s Fairytale‘ (110¼bpm), Chuck D co-shouted churning ‘Endangered Species (Tales From The Darkside)‘ (112bpm), plaintive female Yo-Yo duetted scratching introed (and James Brown cutting) bumpily jogging ‘It’s A Man’s World‘ (95½bpm), race riot report introed word spitting ‘The Bomb‘ (115½bpm), bland radio DJs sandwiched angry ‘Turn Off The Radio‘ (109bpm), JB’s based sombre ‘Who’s The Mack?‘ (91bpm), Stevie Wonder based Flavor Flav duetted rolling slow ‘I’m Only Out For One Thang‘ (92½bpm), stark wordy ‘You Can’t Fade Me‘ (87bpm) and ‘Once Upon A Time In The Projects‘ (77bpm), Average White Band based murky aggressive short ‘What They Hittin’ Foe?‘ (100bpm) and even shorter ‘Get Off My Dick And Tell Yo Bitch To Come Here‘ (94bpm). That about says it all.
FRAZIER CHORUS ‘Cloud 8 (Swing Machine Vocal Mix)’ (103¼bpm) (Virgin VSTX 1252)
Basically a rather fey though catchily worded pop song, first toughened up by Paul Oakenfold with beefily jittering beats and delicately jangling jazzy piano into club credible instrumental Raid and still swingbeat though softer breathily vocal Future Mixes (102¾bpm), now separately in this other also swingbeat-ish but totally different snappily lurching vocal remix by the group themselves, flipped by a jerkily jolted chugging semi-instrumental Richie Rich Reconstruction (103bpm) and the baroque breathy straight pop 7″ Version (102¾bpm).
SHARON DEE CLARKE ‘Mr. Right (The Orr-Some Mix)’ (119½bpm) (Rumour Records RUMAT 15)
Wailingly remade old Eleanor Mills soul stomper, promoed in this bubbly bass thrummed somewhat South African township flavoured friskily flying remix by the Massivo boys, plus producer Damon Rochefort’s more basically booming vigorous bounding original mix (119¾bpm), with an acappella outro.
L.A. STAR ‘Fade To Black (The Boiler House Boil In The Jazz Mix)’ (97bpm) (Profile PROFT 294)
Monotonously rapping Lisa All Star’s here Boiler House Boys remixed jazzily bubbling bass nagged ‘Engine Number 9’-ish jiggly chugger is flipped by its Instrumental, plus Brian Stroh and producers The Hollywood Impact’s more sombre original US LP Version (97½bpm).
THE WEE PAPA GIRL RAPPERS ‘Get In The Groove’ (123¾bpm) (Jive JIVE T 248)
Mr Lee produced thumping and scurrying enthusiastic Jazzi P-ish hip house leaper full of sampled familiar flavourings, instrumental for the first full third of the one single mix in which it was promoed, “c-c-c-c-c-come on let’s work, c-c-c-c-c-come on let’s dance, jump to it” being about the gist of the underlying message.
BLACK TULIP & Wendell A. Morrison Jnr. ‘Jam On It’ (Tink! 001-1002, via Movement Soul, 081-968 0228)
On a new Dutch label distributed here, Inner Life member Wendell is the Amsterdam production team’s soulfully growling guest vocalist for this boomingly bounding garage strider, building through piano, congas and organ in its Club Mix and piano-less Organ Dub (120bpm), tighter Radio Mix and corresponding instrumental Karaoke Mix (119¾bpm).
DJ BREAKS CLASSICS Vol. 2 (US Underworld Records AP 147)
Yet another of those Frankie ‘Bones’-type break beat multi-trackers that invariably sell quite well as soon as they’re released but then do little in DJs’ chart returns, making the effort of reviewing them hardly worthwhile, this Reynald ‘Crazy Frenchman’ Deschamps creation however is actually rather more useful than most, with the Brass Construction inspired ‘Movin Breaks’ (120¼bpm), Snap and James Brown inspired ‘Funk Power’ (110bpm), Fatback Band-ish hi-hat hustled ‘Power Houze’ (116¼bpm), “D” Train-ishly chugging ‘I Want Your Groove’ (119½bpm), vibes tinkled attractive ‘Free Man Dance’ (126¼bpm), various familiar threads weaving ‘Houze Muzik’ (120½bpm), funkily jiggling sparse ‘U Got What It Breaks’ (118¾bpm), and Ronald Reagan overdubbed jolting ‘Megalomix’ (112¼bpm).
JAMIE PRINCIPLE ‘Date With The Rain’ (117½bpm) (Atlantic A7965T)
Seemingly about for ever on first import and then promo, this Steve ‘Silk’ Hurley produced subtly attractive falsetto whinneyed funky hip house-tempo light jumpy chugger is finally out here in its US Club, House Dub and Hot Radio Mixes, plus a friskier Radio Mix all of our own, with catchy hidden depths that could help it even to cross over.
MAXI PRIEST ‘Close To You (The Roundhouse Mixes)’ (10 Records TEN 294)
Marking a slight shift in direction, this drum and bass jiggled, strings accented wriggly shuffling pleasant swayer is in Soul (II Soul-ish) rather than his previous Reggae style, A-sided (on promo, anyway) by Phil Bodger’s Main Body, 7″ Radio and Bonus Beats Mixes (96bpm) or possibly more interesting and less bland on the B-side in Phil Chill’s scratching jerky Rap Sensation (96bpm) featuring husky rapper Darren Deere, plus Leo Grant’s joltingly syncopated Bad Ass and sparser Acappella & Drum Mixes (96¼bpm).
KICKING BACK with TAXMAN ‘Everything (Kickin’ Mix)’ (97¾bpm) (10 Records TENX307)
Another fusion of Taxman’s squiddley diddley raggamuffin rapping and Patcee’s sweet breathy street soul cooing, this mellow jiggly swayer possibly has more of a pleasant atmosphere than an actual song cutting through in its A-side mix, flipped by a more percussively jogging Meltdown Mix and (significant for its radio chances) an Original 7″ that does make it a tighter attractive song. However, also promoed is an alternative slinkier bass jogged weaving Long Mix (10 Records TENZ 307) that may well prove to be preferable as it too makes more of the song, flipped by an also new jigglier Kickin’ Mix plus the previous Meltdown Mix.
KAOTIC STYLIN ‘Don’t Waste Your Time’ (96¼bpm) (US Ray Ray Records KR-1000)
Although retitled after its repeated chorus line and credited to co-producer Ronald Staton, this is nothing less than a similarly slinky rolling male rap treatment of En Vogue’s ‘Hold On’, with “we rock the mic” and “kickin’ ass” punctuations especially in the useful rap-less Dub Version, obviously worth checking by mixers.
JOHNNY GILL ‘Rub You The Right Way’ (111½bpm) (Motown ZT 43702)
The former New Edition leader’s Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis created chunkily lurching gruff jiggly swingbeat thudder is here (on promo at least) in J.G. Classic, Alternative 7″ Edit, scratching wriggly Instrumental, Extended Hype and Remix Edit versions, the latter two featuring a rap break by C.L. Smooth.
BLUE PEARL ‘Naked In The Rain (Extended Mix)’ (115bpm) (Big Life/W.A.U! Mr. Modo Recordings BLR T 23)
Previously released or at least white labelled last year, this Youth produced and Graham (808 State) Massey co-remixed electronic bass pulsed densely arranged thumping pop wailer celebrates the ecstatic pleasure of dancing naked in the rain, something the multi-tracked mournful Miss Pearl seems keen on, flipped by its piano jangled throbbing Instrumental Mix, and a (vocal) more percussively electro Massey’s 808 Jazz Mix (115½bpm).
KAREN JONES ‘Come Together’ (95¼bpm) (Italian Full Time FTM 31664)
Just what the world was waiting for, another Beatles oldie (the “here come old flat top” 1969 coupling of ‘Something’) given a jiggly bumping Soul II Soul-ish rhythm, and a Grace Jones-type vocal in this useful enough if hardly inspired treatment, flipped though by the similarly titled but unrelated ‘Come To’ (109bpm) in jiggly loping 1st Part and more pent up jittery chugging 2nd Part versions, deserving attention.
DOUBLE TROUBLE ‘Love Don’t Live Here Anymore (Club Mix)’ (89bpm) (Desire WANTX 32)
Croaking Carl Brown muttered delicately starting then jiggly swaying Janette Sewell sung superb undulating smoochy revival of the ‘Car Wash’ featured Rose Royce classic, flipped on promo just by its Instrumental, while the commercial pressing due out June 11 will include a new track called ‘Do Your Thing‘.
KLYMAXX ‘Good Love (Extended Hype Club Vibe)’ (98½bpm) (MCA Records MCAT 1427)
Hip hop guys introed then sweet girls cooed En Vogue-ish languidly rolling jiggly jogger with jangling keyboards and rumbling beats, quite likely to be another ‘Hold On’-type ‘grower’ (this time with an acappella outro!), here flipped by its Instrumental Vibe and Percussapella, while, warm since the end of April, the fractionally slower import (98bpm) (US MCA-24000) has extra Dub and Good Lovin’ Beats versions too.
MONIE LOVE ‘Monie In The Middle’ (115-114½bpm) (Cooltempo COOLX 210)
Latifah’s plaintively fast talking chum is back at last from ‘Grandpa’s Party’ with a far funkier jiggly chugger produced and mixed by Cox & Steele (Fine Young Cannibals’ ‘2 Guys’), who whip up a terrific JB-style brassy groove, expanded upon in the promo AA-side’s even more James Brown brass accented Ultimatum Instrumental (116½bpm) but not in its sax wailed less subtle rawly jittering Pete Lorimer Mix (115bpm).
DESTRY ‘Did You Find A Heart (Club Mix)’ (121¼bpm) (Desire WANTX 26)
Discovered during the label’s recent Stateside talent hunt, this mournfully moaning 25 year old guy’s Chicago recorded, Evelyn Camp produced and Smack Productions remixed old fashioned burbling bass and hissing hi-hat hustled house canterer suddenly jerks on the command “just give me the beat and the bass, man” into a refreshing wriggly rhythm breakdown to relieve the monotony, while this jigglier bright hip house rhythm runs right through the flip’s Hip Hop Mix, but not its Dub Mix.
LIZ TORRES ‘If U Keep It Up’ (120¼bpm) (Jive Chicago PROMO 37)
The windy city’s raunchy ‘Queen Of House’ has caused an instant stir ahead of its June 25 commercial release with this Clivilles & Cole created breezily churning and rumbling canterer, instrumental for quite a while before she starts her scolding (although, one ultimately realises, surprisingly half-hearted) threats of “I’m leavin'” directed against a two-timin’ but sweet-talkin’ lover, flipped on advance promo pressing by a percussively thrumming and twittering fully instrumental If U Drum It Mix.
TONY! TONI! TONÉ! ‘Oakland Stroke (Brixton Bass Mix)’ (105¼bpm) (Wing Records WINGX 7, via Polydor)
With a possibly obscure lyric for the UK though a pleasantly old fashioned hi-hat fluttered and squeaky strings swamped rolling mellow groove, this guys muttered and Vanessa Williams chorused tribute to indeed a dance groove specific to just Oakland, California (their hometown, a bastion of ‘The Blues’, which perhaps not coincidentally is the title of their lurching current US hit), is strongly De La Soul-ish and presumably authentic on LP but ironically here gets Blacksmith’s Brixton remix treatment, including also a funky even more geographically incorrect samples prodded jittering Upso Mix (plus respective Dubs).
