BEATS & PIECES
SHARON REDD’s sister Pennye Ford, remembered for 1984’s ‘Dangerous’ and ‘Change Your Wicked Ways’ on Total Experience Records, is featured guest on Snap’s new ‘Ooops Up’ . . . Rumour Records have snapped up Dream In Goa ‘Shine On You Crazy Diamond’, the remade Pink Floyd tune also recently used by Innocence . . . Ice Cube’s ‘AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted’ import album is being rushed out here by 4th + B’way, who have further fuelled the current carefully stoked controversy about N.W.A. by adding ‘**** Tha Police’ to their reissued 12-inch of ‘Express Yourself’ . . . Mark Summers’ better B-side ‘Wicked In Mombassa‘ has been remixed by No Smoke . . . Promised Land’s repetitively “revolution” chanting instrumental flip, nothing to do with ‘Something In The Air’, is called ‘No It U Lover (Mantra For A Revolution)’ (98bpm) . . . Wee Papa Girl Rappers’ Get In The Groove’ is flipped by the Teddy Riley produced, ‘Del’ Geoff Hunt remixed, ‘Faith (Contrabanned Mix)‘ (105bpm), plus the jerky raggamuffin ‘Step Up‘ (79½bpm) . . . Swansea’s Jeff Thomas has finally got onto radio after many attempts, presenting a Saturday morning 9am-noon dance show across the water on Bristol’s For The People 97.2FM, a 170 mile round trip but well worth it, he says . . . Southend-on-Sea’s Robbie Dee, still at the Zero Thurs/Fridays and Hollywood Wed/Saturdays, is even luckier being on his hometown’s Essex Radio 102.6/96.3FM weekdays 4-7pm and Saturdays 10am-2pm — nice work if you can get it . . . Ollie Dowling, resident jock at Dublin’s Pink Elephant, has organised a Dublin Funk Collective of DJs, rappers, dancers and others both interested in and keen to promote specialist black dance music, with all sorts of activities planned and two funky rap/rare groove club nights already running, Transmitting Live From Mars the first Wednesday of every month at Trinity College’s Buttery Bar (free admission), and DefCon every Saturday (plus Friday soon for Philly, northern and rare soul) in the basement of the Pembroke Bar off Baggot Street (£1.50), the DFC also contributing to two radio shows, Elaine Keogh’s on Horizon 94.9FM Saturday 8-10pm and David Hales’s on Radio Dublin 101FM/253AM Sunday 8-11am . . . Irish DJs, don’t forget the previously detailed first ever Irish DJ Convention is next Monday (June 18) at the Sands Hotel in Portmarnock, County Dublin, with an equipment exhibition and record fair during the day (£2 admission), followed in the evening by the seminar session, presentation of awards voted for by DJs during Simon Young’s weekend dance mix shows on 2FM (which will be broadcasting live), plus scratch mix demonstrations and PAs (£10 admission for whole event) — I’ll see you there, so make mine a Murphy’s, slainte! . . . Futureshock Promotions are following up their previous disco jaunts to Spain with a visit next Friday, June 22, to Barcelona’s 4,000 capacity club Zeleste, starring for the night London DJs Judge Jules and Steve Bicknell plus PAs by Boy George, MC Kinky of the E-ZEE Possee, and local Spanish acts — for full details of a Thursday to Sunday inclusive round trip, call Bud Nijjar on 081-533 3840 . . . DJ Morse and Nikky K start a hardbeat/techno/freestyle Go Bang! Wednesday rave this week (13) at Woodhall Country Club near Woodbridge (off the B 1083) . . . The Pure Organisation kick off a country touring Dance ’90 legal rave this Friday (15) at Tonbridge’s Angel Centre, with megawatts of sound, lighting and effects plus DJs Fabio, Trevor Fung, Colin Faver, Andy Nichols, G-Force, Grant Harper (over 18s only) — Trevor incidentally is now a consultant at Champion, assuming the mantle once worn there by his long time colleague Paul Oakenfold . . . DJs Bri. G, Rocky & Soul Pete’s latest Sweat Box night with “attitude” is at York’s Keatons in Fishergate also this Friday, when details of a Sweat Boat trip will be announced . . . Robbie Collins warns any prospective PAs (welcome on 081-506 1970) that they’d better know how to swim if they gig with him on Sunday nights around the open air swimming pool at Chigwell’s Epping Forest Country Club! . . . Old Gold in their 12 inch Gold label series have reissued back to back the bossa nova classics Astrud Gilberto ‘The Girl From Ipanema’ and Stan Getz & Charlie Byrd ‘Desafinado’ (OG 4177), nice for summer nights . . . Mike Carr has released only as an export a compilation CD of all the more mellow material by his jazz-funk group Cargo, ‘Cargo For Export Only‘ (Cargogold Productions CGCD 190), well worth finding on import for easy listening . . . Mike Stevens, now he’s no longer so closely involved with L.A. Mix, is the multi-instrumentalist behind the Cooltempo Unlimited Orchestra . . .
Reviewed by James Hamilton and Judge Jules
LL COOL J ‘To Da Break Of Dawn (Remix Version)’ (105bpm) (US Motown MOT-4729)
Remixed by producer Marley Marl and LL from the ‘House Party’ soundtrack album, which explains the temporary change of label, this funkily chugging and scratching sassy rap is rather better than much of his recent Def Jam material, flipped just by a good more sparsely syncopated Bug Out Mix (104¾bpm).
E-ZEE POSSEE ‘The Sun Machine (Master Mix)’ (116¼bpm) (More Protein PROT 412, via Virgin)
Breathily soulful MC Kinky (a girl) cooed and “na na na-na no” guys chanted (apparently borrowing from David Bowie’s ‘Memories Of A Free Festival’) breezily jiggling chugger with plenty of pop appeal, flipped by Tommy D’s more smoothly subdued Charlie Brown In-The-House and jittery Face-The-Bass Mixes.
MASSIVO featuring TRACY ‘Loving You (Summer Breeze Mix)’ (99¾bpm) (Debut DEBTXR 3097)
Not only remixed but also totally re-instrumentated by Steve Anderson, the Minnie Riperton revival now builds from piano and strings to a bassily jiggling new groove that seems pretty hot in its own right, flipped by a sweetly episodic Cascade Dub plus still the jazzily jogging instrumental ‘Half Will Do’ (95bpm).
JANET JACKSON ‘Alright (Hip Hop Mix)’ (111½bpm) (A&M USAT 693)
Already used (in different mixes) as flip to her last UK single but currently a US smash in its own right, the Heavy D guest rapped standout from Janet’s ‘Rhythm Nation 1814’ album is here now remixed by CJ Mackintosh & Dave Dorrell with a terrific jiggly tough JB groove, flipped by CJ & Dave’s less essential gradually starting then thumping ambient birds twittered so-called House Mix.
VOICE OF AFRICA ‘Hoomba Hoomba’ (95¾bpm) (Tam Tam Records TTT 027)
White labelled in two mixes ahead of June 25 release here, this moody Italian instrumental ends up as quite haunting but could so easily have been pure hokum, fading in with African drumbeats that then blend with a Soul II Soul rhythm before the mellow piano tinkled melody builds attractively through bursts of muted afro chanting, a likely crossover hit.
KING BEE ‘Back By Dope Demand’ (1st Bass RUFF 6, via Rough Trade/The Cartel)
A big dance hit in Holland, this bumpily jiggling angry rap ‘n scratch is in Straight Up (113½bpm), Funky Bass Mix (113¾bpm), and a cleanly worded Raydio Version (114bpm), all with a sitar, brass and (repeated) guitar intro that sounds like some variation on ’19th Nervous Breakdown’, flipped by the hip house ‘Feel The Flow‘ in jaunty Yellow Magic Orchestra based Club (121¾bpm) and more routinely driving Chant (121½bpm) Mixes.
JOANNA LAW ‘First Time Ever’ (US Easy Street EZS-7564)
Previously recording as City Heat, London based gentle singer Joanna and her producer brother ‘The Funky Ginger’ Simon Law (the latter now best known for Soul II Soul’s ‘A Dreams A Dream’ plus the current hits by Yazz and Rebel MC) have revived Roberta Flack’s ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ with superb sparse Soul II Soul-ishly jogged deadly cool style to simple acoustic piano and James Taylor’s Hammond organ, in 12″ ‘Mellow Groove’ (103¼bpm) and five more fractionally slower ‘Mellow Groove’, ‘Bumpy’ and ‘Acapella’ versions, instantly massive as an import ahead of June 25 UK release on CityBeat (CBE 1252), when it’ll be just in its 12″ ‘Mellow Groove’ (103bpm), 12″ ‘Bumpy’ (102¾bpm) and 7″ ‘Acapella’ mixes (with remixes to follow). Ironically pipped to the post, another much slower UK version of the same old song is not scheduled for release until late July,
MERCY ME ‘First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ (82bpm) (Cooltempo COOLX 214),
pleasantly drifting (if a bit flatly sung) in 071, 081, and Pat Metheny-ish jazzy guitar doodled Vibrazone Mixes.
U.K. 1 featuring TIA & CHANTEL ‘Yeah! (Turn On The Light) (The Orr-Some Mix)’ (123½bpm) (Rumour Records RUMAT 16)
Germany based American Anglophiles whipping up a terrific smoothly churning call-and-answer girls wailed and rapped at times gospel-ish house canterer with some catchy hooks (especially a “you sure make me feel like loving you” line, more prominent than any mention of the title), remixed here by the Massivo boys with their similarly thrumming The Orr-Some Dub Mix (123bpm), plus Rick Layne’s more rawly galloping Germany issued original mix (123½bpm).
TAMMY PAYNE ‘Free’ (97bpm) (Bristol Baseline Productions BPM 97)
Promoed on a single-sided 10 inch (following Danny Madden’s seven inch!) ahead of release via WEA on July 2, when it’ll be flipped by the apparently jazzier uptempo ‘Push ‘Em’, this octave scaling 21 year old’s inevitably you-know-what tempo gently rolling Deniece Williams revival really is 97bpm, also its catalogue and matrix number, and was signed to the burgeoning BBP label by BBC Radio Bristol’s black music presenter Tristan Bolitho.
RICH NICE with Special Guest JEFF REDD ‘Outstanding (Extended Rich Mix)’ (102¾bpm) (US Motown MOT-4720)
Nice (which seems the appropriate word!) mumblingly rapped and moaned languid mellow jiggly rolling revival of the Gap Band’s enduring classic, just the right tempo for today again now that London’s clubs are leading the way back to the jogging grooves of the early Eighties, flipped by a more percussively drummed drier Extended Nice Mix.
MONDEÉ OLIVER ‘Newsy Neighbors’ (US Gherkin Records GKE 1060)
Soulfully doodling Jimmie Lee and Mondeé (a girl) moan and wail this deceptively fast Larry Heard & Kevin Dixon produced revival of First Choice’s 1974 oldie, in classy sparse pulsing Club Vocal (127¾bpm), joyously bounding Vamp (128-127¾bpm), and happy instrumental Riley Evans (127½-126¼bpm) Mixes, worth checking.
EN VOGUE ‘Born To Sing’ (Atlantic 7567-82084-1)
An excellent album by the girls, slinkily sinuous as one might expect, with the sweetly rolling ‘You Don’t Have To Worry’ (104½bpm), grittily chugging chatter outroed ‘Strange‘ (107bpm), current smash ‘Hold On’ (97bpm), “tick tock”-ing jiggly ‘Time Goes On‘ (108bpm), stunningly exquisite slow deep soul ‘Just Can’t Stay Away‘ (42¼bpm), equally timeless ‘Part Of Me‘ (63bpm), juddery chugging ‘Luv Lines‘ (99bpm), jerkily swaying ‘Lies‘ (99½bpm), lurching ‘Don’t Go‘ (75¾bpm), plus the short filler-like Andrews Sisters paraphrasing ‘Hip Hop Bugle Boy‘ (108bpm) and P’funky ‘Party‘ (107bpm). Closer to the classic Sixties girl groups than most, they strike me as having echoes of the Shirelles, Sweet Inspirations and others.
54-46 ‘You’ll Never Get To Heaven’ (97bpm) (Mango Street 12MNS 743, via Island)
Dionne Warwick’s 1964 (and latterly the Stylistics’ 1973) attractive Bacharach & David penned ‘You’ll Never Get To Heaven (If You Break My Heart)’ hit given guess what sort of languidly jiggling beat behind Toots Hibbert’s soulfully nagging daughter, very pleasant if not exactly startling in the face of so much that’s similar now (Instrumental/Acappella flip).
RHYTHIM IS RHYTHIM ‘The Beginning’ (129bpm) (Kool Kat KOOL T600, via Pinnacle)
The Derrick May masterminded act’s first brand new recording in almost three years (since ‘It Is What It Is’), due commercially next week, this squidgily fluttering and twittering nervy acidic electro techno instrumental builds up tension for ages before a beefier beat kicks in, flipped by the similarly acidic but perhaps easier wriggly latin percussion driven ‘Salsa Life‘ (128½bpm), and hollow washing machine-style forcefully striding ‘Drama‘ (130½bpm).
FALLOUT ‘The Morning After (1990 Remix)’ (122bpm) (US Fourth Floor Records FF-1114)
Already reissued and remixed here this year on Azuli Records, Lenny Dee & Tommy Musto’s proto-ambient instrumental from 1987 is now in new bassily throbbing and tumbling Club and more disjointedly surging Dub mixes, as flip to the electronically droning and burbling episodic ‘Altered States‘ (122bpm), likewise in Club and Dub mixes.
CAPPELLA ‘Everybody Listen To It (The Paradise Mix)’ (121½bpm) (Cygnet Records CYGT 4, via Total/BMG)
Effective enough though by now rather routine 1989 Black Box-type speedily galloping Italo house throbber with a muttering camp chap and wailing girl (Instrumental flip).
PAUL JOHNSON ‘Don’t Make Me Wait Too Long (Original Full Length Version)’ (111¼bpm) (CBS PJOHN Q9)
Pete Wingfield produced attractive gospel-ishly whinneyed remake of the Stevie Wonder penned 1980 Roberta Flack oldie, now not so much re-mixed as un-mixed in this straightforward swaying original treatment (new to us though), plus once again remixer Crypt’s previously B-sided slightly Snap-py Spiritual Mix (108¾bpm), flipped by David Morales’ drily tapping dull ‘You’re No Good (Deep House Mix)‘ (110bpm).
DA POSSE ‘Da Posse Is Large’ (RePublic Records LICLP 045, via Rough Trade)
Hula and K. Fingers produced fairly specialist sparse house album with ‘To Win Your Love’ in contrasting soulful guys moaned mildly cantering N.Y. Mix (120¼bpm) and punchier rapping swingbeat Jack Swing (112¼bpm) versions, the gently pulsing instrumental ‘In The Life (Keys Mix)‘ (120¾bpm), locomoting hi-hat hustled instrumental ‘The Groove (Bass & Treble Mix)‘ (125bpm), girls panted and gasped jazz-funky ‘Feel The Melody (Club Mix)‘ (30¼-120½bpm), friskily flying repetitive ‘I Want It (Future Mix)‘ (128½bpm), jittery pattering soulful ‘Don’t Try To Fight It (In Effect Mix)‘ (120¼bpm), and Hula mixed old fashioned jerky house ‘Searchin Hard (Aluh Mix)‘ (120½bpm).
FRESH 4 (CHILDREN OF THE GHETTO) featuring Sister Redz ‘Release Yourself’ (122¾-124¾bpm) (10 Records TENX301)
The Smith & Mighty co-produced Bristol posse return less impressively than before with a girl wailed fairly mundane ecstatically swirling spacey lightweight raver that may have a market but wastes their special talents, coupled by its beat losingly introed Dub (122¾-124bpm) and the more interesting raggamuffin guy rapped slippery scratching ‘Cuts, Scratches And All That Stuff‘ (116bpm), due June 25.
BEN LIEBRAND ‘Spanish Jam (Club Remix)’ (119bpm) (Epic LIEB T1)
Although the ‘Twilight Zone’ introed and ‘Do It Any Way You Wanna’ driven jolting Vangelis oldie adapting ‘Puls(t)ar‘ (119¾bpm) is ostensibly the hit side, it’s this snaredrum and piano driven Spanish guitar picked beefy Balearic instrumental flipside that’s causing more excitement in discerning circles.
BOBBY BROWN ‘The Freestyle Mega-Mix’ (105¾-111¾bpm) (MCA Records MCAT 1421)
Created by Ben’s sister Rita Liebrand, this neat enough if predictable rolling medley of ‘On Our Own’/’Don’t Be Cruel’/’Every Little Step’/’My Prerogative’ is flipped by the old sexually healing ‘Rock Wit’cha’ (77¼bpm) and juddery jittering ‘Girl Next Door’ (102½bpm), there being no new product to coincide with his UK visit.
BLAZE ’25 Years Later’ (Motown ZL72713)
Confusingly packaged to look like a reggae compilation, this excellent old fashioned soul pastiches filled album charted on sales rather than dancefloor reaction and although superb listening in truth is probably best for home and radio play, with the romping currently 12-inched ‘So Special’ (119½bpm), O’Jays-ish ‘Miss My Love‘ (121½bpm), T-Connection-ish ‘We All Must Live Together‘ (121¼bpm), strutting ‘You Don’t Really Love Me‘ (118½bpm), slow started Curtis Mayfield-ish ‘Get Up‘ (114¾bpm), staccato ‘Anything For Your Lovin’‘ (119½bpm), Marvin Gaye-style ‘I Wonder‘ (94bpm) and ‘Lover Man’ (33½bpm), Stevie Wonder-ish ‘All That I Should Know’ (79bpm), sombre ‘Gonna Make It Work’ (77¼bpm), acoustic piano backed dead slow ‘Missing You’ (15¾bpm).
D-SHAKE ‘Techno Trance (The Next Generation)’ (123bpm) (Cooltempo COOLXR 213)
Another mind numbingly piledriving mix (fractionally fluctuating), mainly for marketing purposes, coupled by an also new more twittery Feel The Space (123¼-122¾bpm) version plus a jerkily disjointed Orr-Some Remix of ‘Yaaah’ (123bpm).
RON TRENT ‘Altered States (Original Full Length Mix)’ (127½bpm) (US Warehouse Records WR005)
Repetitively driving ‘French Kiss’ type (though consistently tempoed) marathon 13½ minutes long synthesised instrumental with only a few variations as it progresses but plenty of hypnotic power for dedicated ravers, technically B-side to the similarly galloping but less powerful ‘The Afterlife‘ (123bpm) and more melodically washed ‘Making Love‘ (124½bpm), which does slow at the end.
M.E. FEATURING YVONE GAGE ‘Winter Days & Summer Nights’ (109¼bpm) (US Trax Records TX 196)
Quite a change of pace and approach for Chicago’s hallowed house label, this sweet girl cooed pleasant street soul-type tripping swayer was penned by M. Sanders & E. Lewis (M.E.?) but produced by Rick Barnes & Derek Brand (in Vocal, Radio, and Original Mixes).
LOUIE LOUIE ‘Sittin’ In The Lap Of Luxury’ (102bpm) (US WTG Records 41 73168)
Promoed to DJs on import in no fewer than five Shep Pettibone mixes, this ‘White Lines’-ishly bossed funkily jiggling swingbeat roller is due here in some form on Epic (655738 6).
