BEATS AND PIECES
IN CASE you’re wondering why nobody in the UK dance music business has been answering their telephone lately, just about everyone is in New York at the New Music Seminar! (I however have taken the more sensible option, and been to Devon!) . . . A&M’s pressing of the ‘Oh Susanna’ version of ‘Tom’s Diner’ is revealingly credited to D.N.A. featuring Suzanne Vega — yes, it seems that its remixers were the same team responsible for the Rondo Venezziano adapting supposedly Italian ‘La Serenissima’, which thus obviously also came from no further afield than Bristol! . . . Stepz meanwhile has really been out in Italy supplying a guest rap for the next Black Box single — do you bet it comes two-thirds of the way through? . . . ‘Easy Life’ is being lifted from the Cabaret Voltaire EP as their next single . . . Glen Goldsmith’s current A-side will soon be relegated to the flip of a brand new duet by him with MC Hammer . . . Gary Mayo, Paul Lyons and Maxi Million are split between two rooms with apparently slammin’ sound systems at Cardiff’s Tom-Tom Club and urgently need guest PAs on 0222-342234 . . . Cheltenham’s The Prom Club now has Upfront ’90 Tuesday nights (10pm-2am) with Paul Anthony playing nothing but hot newies . . . Doyado is every other Saturday (including this week’s, July 21) at Woodys in Westbourne Green’s Woodfield Road, off the Harrow Road, with DJs Femi, Shake & Fingerpop, Lacelles, Eddie Piller and Mannaseh spinning funk, rap, jazz and reggae . . . Digger Elias’s swingbeat, purple and hip hop Bounced night has indeed bounced successfully from Wednesdays at Mayfair’s Legends to Fridays at Soho’s W1 Club, and now also as of this week to Saturdays in Moscow at 62 Frith Street (where board games seem to be played too) . . . Coventry’s Dog & Trumpet having closed as a leading dance venue, Robin ‘Lof’ Moorcroft has retired from its DJ team leaving Toby Davis and Paul T now playing their upfront eclectic toons at Browns . . . Paul French at last has a telephone in his new home on which to receive offers of another upfront gig to follow his six years at Gillingham’s The Avenue, the number being 0634-50894 . . . Herb Alpert’s ‘Rise’, not ‘Rotation’, is the beat I meant in last week’s Lalah Hathaway review (I got my R’s mixed up!) . . . KICKIN’!

THE PASADENAS ‘Reeling’ (96bpm) (CBS PASA T5)
Apparently combining the three mixes that were split between two promos, the commercial pressing of this pleasantly plaintive jogging soul swayer therefore presumably has David Morales’ lushly harmonised (with an exciting guttural outburst) Daytime Dance Mix, Joe Dworniak’s sparsely rumbling and tapping DW Mix, and the previously separate juddering jittery Bruce Forest Mix.
JOY SALINAS ‘Stay Tonight’
MAUREEN WALSH ‘Thinking Of You (Rough & Ragged Mix)’ (96-96¼bpm) (Urban URBXR 55)
The Sister Sledge revival given a sax introed mushily pleasant more reggae-ish Steve Travell remix, still with rapping Kev Won’s raggamuffin outburst, which is also in the flip’s jolting tougher JB grunt and repetitive smurf punctuated different Ren Swan mixed Rough & Ragged Dub (96¼bpm) but not the A-side echoing attractive Dubwise Without Rap (96-96¼bpm).

STEPPFORD WIVES ‘2,000 Light Years From Home’

ORIGINAL CLIQUE ‘Ten To Midnight E.P.’ (Chill TUV 1, via 0582 493380)
Not from Sheffield, not from Leeds, but from Luton — and it out bleeps the lot of ’em! — this electro instrumental four tracker has the bubbly bounding ‘Come To Papa’ (123½bpm) which apart from some muttered title line repetition consists of nothing but bleeps, the effects and samples washed sturdily cantering ‘Mayhem‘ (120bpm), the hustling and blipping electronically percussive ‘U = Underground‘ (121 bpm), plus the percolating ‘Xamax‘ (119¾bpm) which briefly loses the beat near the start in a confusion of cross rhythms, but it’s not bad considering they were apparently recorded in something akin to a coal hole!
JAM ON THE MUTHA ‘Hotel California’ (91¾bpm) (W.A.U! Mr. Modo Recordings MWS 027T)
Taking a while to surface since my original warning and in fact still not out fully until August 6, this revived Eagles’ FM rock oldie gets a ponderously jiggling Promised Land type rhythm backing on a 33⅓rpm 12 inch in its vocal Ibiza 90 Mix, but which perhaps more interestingly in its similar though vocal-less Instru-Mental Mix when played at 45rpm (as I did at first by mistake!) comes out in a perfectly credible and undistorted percussively scrubbing Italo house style (123½bpm) that to my mind is a lot brighter, there being an unrelated short basic thumping instrumental ‘Jam’ (110¾bpm) too.
WILDSKI ‘Wonderful World (12″ FX Mix)’ (87¾bpm) (Arista 613 479)
Prodded by Temptations-type ‘psyche-soul’ fuzz guitar tones, this girls cooed and cockney raggamuffin rapped jiggly lurching reggae swayer (more rhythmic than its BPM suggests) is an ironically titled message song about starvation and other ecological problems, rather than the Sam Cooke oldie, flipped by two further alternative mixes.
A TRIBE CALLED QUEST ‘Bonita Applebum (Why Version)’ (92bpm) (Jive JIVE T 256)
Like listening to just one side of a lascivious chat-up, more slinkily conversational in its included drily tapping Album Version (91¾bpm), this gently muttering roller has however here been synched to the ever popular rhythm of Carly Simon’s ‘Why’ by those clever remixers Dave Dorrell & CJ Mackintosh, now with Miss Applebaum (as she was originally spelt) putting in a shivering and whimpering appearance just before the fade!
M.C. SHOWBIZZ and The Lap 1 Crew ‘Gotta Turn The Music Up’ (120½bpm) (1st Bass RUFF 8, via Big One)
Exploding on promo ahead of full release next week, this Longsy D mixed brightly bleeping, jangling, scratching and wriggling frisky hip house leaper is prodded at times by Players Association ‘Turn The Music Up’ quotes, in Critical-Core Mix, Soft-Core Mix, Hard-Core Dub, and fractionally slower Hard-Core Mix (120bpm) versions, the first named A-side pair being the most exciting.
DA POSSE ‘To Win Your Love’ (RePublic Records LICT 038)
Hottest so far on this EP-like 33⅓rpm 12 inch is their album’s gently bleeping unrushed wriggly cantering attractive electro instrumental ‘In The Life (Keys Mix)’ (120½bpm), coupled by the set titling ‘To Win Your Love’ in a new rapped and scratched beefily shuffling Super-Dope Mix (116¼bpm) and the album’s soulfully moaned and mumbled gentler N.Y. Mix (120¼bpm), a new “yu-oh yu-oh yu-oh” chanted tinkly jittering Yo Yo Yo Mix of the slightly retitled ‘Don’t Fight It’ (119¾bpm), plus a now completely slow Mellow Mix of ‘Feel The Melody’ (30/59¾bpm).
TECHNOTRONIC featuring Ya Kid K ‘Rockin’ Over The Beat (LP Version)’ (120¼bpm) (Swanyard Records Ltd SYRT 14, via Total/BMG)
Technotronic, not being an act of whom one expects any great subtlety, sure enough are back with a basically bashing bouncy bounder once again given a rudimentary rhythm emphasising rap by precocious Miss Kamosi, flipped by Spencer Henderson & ‘Bluey’ Maunick’s jerkily throbbing Swanyard Remix of the Eric B rapped old ‘This Beat Is Technotronic’ (123½bpm).
DAVID RUDDER & MARGARETH MENEZES ‘Dark Secret (X-Rated RnB Mix)’ (119½bpm) (London LONXR 260)
A cool breeze of summery exoticism from down South America way, this joyfully duetted soulful shuffling samba has classy jazz-funk instrumentation with squealing sax — and some fairly steamy moans of pleasure from Margareth! — David teaming with Charlies Roots for the flip’s mournful 100.2bpm ‘Working On The Join’ (100¼bpm) and acappella ‘There Is A Land’ (106¾bpm), making an altogether interesting package for music lovers rather than just disco fans.
TONGUE ‘n’ CHEEK ‘Nobody’ (Syncopate 12SY 37) Nicely wailed by Maureen, this catchy song is hard to encapsulate in a few words as it’s been creatively promoed in six totally different treatments, initially in a coupling of Bootsie & Snudge’s funky drummered jiggly smacking Blue Mix (113bpm) and Liverpudlian AJ Fly’s juddery stark Street Mix (110½bpm), with a special limited edition triple pack sleeve that will hold three 12 inch records (all advance pressings for DJs only), this first one included (12SY 371) with numbers 2 (12SY 372) and 3 (12SY 373) to follow, these being Robin & Delroy’s briefly “soul” started then bumpily throbbing real reggae Ragga Mix (111-98½bpm) featuring raggamuffin toasters Mel O’Dee & Captain Einstein, flipped by a ‘Do It Any Way You Wanna’ bass pushed percussive Summer Breeze Mix (110½bpm) (Peoples Choice coincidentally is the same BPM), and Howie Bernstein’s wriggly drum thumped attractively swaying Nomad Soul Mix (110¾bpm) flipped by Total Contrast’s cheekily ‘Hold On’ style rolling In Vogue Mix (106¾bpm). Further confusing things, these will be spread across just two commercial 12-inchers, with four tracks on each (a Manyana Mix of ‘Tomorrow’ will be common to both), in order to comply with some new Gallup chart rules!
QRZ? FEATURING STEPZ ‘Fast Fish And Loose Fish (The Rapper’s Tale)’ (116bpm) (10 Records TENX 314)
The rapper they call Stepz turns up yet again, fronting presumably a spinoff from Quartz for this Larry Stabbins produced refreshingly different fruitily brassy churning shuffler that unusually is dominated by a braying trombone, flipped by its calmer though similarly blowing instrumental The Bone Mix (115¾bpm) plus a slow chunkily rolling jazz brass instrumental ‘Larry’s Groove’ (85½bpm).
GARY’S GANG ‘Keep On Dancin’ 1990’ (121½bpm) (BCM Records BCM 470 X)
An enduring disco classic in its day, which was 12 years ago (February 1979 by the time it hit here), now stripped down and totally remade by John Frizzel with Brian Stroh & The Hollywood Impact, this virtually brand new thudding and schlurping simple bassy bounder even adds an augmenting vocal by Roland Clark in Hollywood’s 5:00 AM Club Mix and shorter bubblier 1990 Mix, the latter a tighter actual song, flipped for comparison with Eric Matthew & Gary Turnier’s Original 1978 Version (125¼-126bpm), which of course has the rattling timbales, tinkling bells, squidgily swooshing synth, “ooooh-wahh” harmonies, and other hooks that people of a certain age actually remember!
RESCUE ‘Feel’ (Profile PROFT 303)
Created by Stepz (of Quartz, QRZ?, etc) and Felix, with Jackie adding “oh oh oh” gasps and gettin’ down in the video with Alex, this is neither the rap that one might expect nor even particularly hip hop, being a spurting and jiggling hip house-ish tempoed electro instrumental in breezily scurrying Karck Mix (122½bpm) and more sparsely fierce Mashed Mix (121 bpm) versions.
DIGITAL UNDERGROUND ‘Packet Man’ (BCM Records BCM 476-DJ)
As previously warned, the zany rappers’ condoms discussing conversational album track is now also 12-inched separately from ‘Doowutchyalike’ in CJ Mackintosh’s chunkily thumping but lazily rolling Worth A Packet Mix (97¾bpm) and its pleasant jazz-funky sax instrumental Sax Packet Mix, plus the boomingly bumped emptier Original LP Mix (98bpm) and a more bumpily shuffling Analog Underground Mix that’s closer to it.
PRECIOUS ‘Let’s Get It Started’ (121bpm) (MCA Records/Big Beat MCAT 1416)
Jumping about just as spectacularly as MC Hammer in her live shows, Precious has armed herself with a spring heeled beat and then bounces her rap right off it in this massively whomping infectious thumper, with appropriately named Thump Mix and Pumpin’ Bumpin’ Mix versions, flipped by the ‘Pop Muzik’-ishly driven ‘Competitions’ (100¾bpm) in Bee Bopp Style and partly acappella Loose Buddie Style.
THE K.L.F. ‘What Time Is Love? (Live At Trancentral)’ (119bpm) (KLF Communications KLF 004X)
The original having been an influential much copied droning and driving fave at raves last summer, this new version was recorded live at a party in the KLF’s Trancentral HQ with guests MC Bello of the Outlaw Posse and Manda of the Beatmasters grabbing the mikes as it powers and twitters along through prompts of “kick out the jams….” (so it’s not advised for radio play!), flipped on white label promo by a similarly “mother” punctuated but otherwise different, “c’mon Floyd, do y’wanna ride” repeating girls rapped and Jimi Hendrix-type guitar yowled jittery chugging ‘Untitled Exclusive Promo Flipside’ alternative treatment of its unadorned rhythm track.
CLUBLAND featuring QUARTZ ‘Let’s Get Busy (Pump It Up): Snap! The Remix! (Robomixed), introducing King Bee’ (122bpm) (Swedish BTECH 12tek43)
Produced originally by East London’s Quartz but now strongly remixed by indeed Snap as a King Bee rap over the same though slightly beefed up lurching bassline, this is labelled as being at 45rpm but in fact is 33⅓rpm and craftily coupled with — as only etching in the actual vinyl reveals! — its previously unheard piano jangled more loosely leaping instrumental Original Freestyle Demo Mix and a synthed strings zapped jerkier “secret bonus” David Morales’ Def Dee Mix, plus (now also on the UK released original) the Liberace quote introed and punctuated jiggly trotting ‘The World Of Music‘ (120bpm).
FRESH 4 (CHILDREN OF THE GHETTO) featuring Sister Redz ‘Release Yourself (Phil Chill’s Remix)’ (110bpm) (10 Records TENR 301)
A big change from the fast rave aimed original, Phil’s plaintive girl sung tapping, rumbling and shuffling Chill’s Main Body Mix is coupled by his similar emptier Chill’s Dub Mix, plus producers Smith & Mighty’s still galloping Dr Crispin’s Edit (122¾-124½bpm) and again the guy rapped ‘Cuts, Scratches, Samples And All That Stuff’ (116bpm).
