BEATS & PIECES
BIRMINGHAM’S NETWORK label set out to test its growing “underground” reputation by deliberately not sending out promos of the Altern 8 EP to see whether, if released without either promotion or advertising, it could hold its own alongside imports on such cult US labels as Nugroove — which it did so successfully that it has already sold around 10,000 copies, more than respectable considering the lower sales that are currently general! . . . Altern 8, as previously noted, is a side project of Nexus 21, whose ‘Progressive Logic’ EP is due next week with as main track a new remix of ‘Self Hypnosis’ — the original of which was recently bootlegged here, along with Psyche’s ‘Elements‘ from Network’s house pioneering parent Kool Kat label, whose early releases by the likes of Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May have also been much pirated of late . . . Rave 2001’s almost year old ‘Seduce Me‘ has likewise been remixed for re-release after being bootlegged in Italy (where it’s flipped by Tyree’s ‘My Melody’), a US pirate pressing also having appeared . . . Avenue Records are releasing a ‘Rap Declares War‘ double album (AVENL 1, via Rough Trade) with an interesting compilation concept, every track (by such as Mellow Man Ace, Beastie Boys, Dream Team, Kwame, Poor Righteous Teachers. The 7A3, Tony D and many more) either sampling or being based on an original by War — an advance white label promo EP featuring the ‘Heartbeat’ based Ice-T ‘Heartbeat‘ (88½bpm), ‘Slippin’ Into Darkness’ based Mantronix ‘Join Me Please (Home Boys Make Some Noise)‘ (94¾bpm), ‘Magic Mountain’ based De La Soul ‘Potholes In My Lawn‘ (92¾bpm) and ‘Get Down’ based Wrecks ‘n’ Effect ‘New Jack Swing‘ (106½bpm) has been circulated by Full Effect Promotions (whose Peter Malski is building a DJ mailing list at 100 Portland Road, Rushden, Northants NN10 ODP; ‘phone 081 743 1333, fax 081 749 0751) . . . Power Promotions (32 Holmes Road, Kentish Town, London NW5 3AB; ‘phone 071 482 0729, fax 071 482 0881) are adding to their already flourishing club and press promotion services with the introduction of radio promotion run by Emily Leggatt (who wants to hear from both licensed and unlicensed radio — NOT club — DJs), plus a personal appearance agency run by Ian Gotts to supply fee paying club PAs . . . The Video Pool’s latest, November, edition lists all of the 30 included videos’ Beats Per Minute calculated from the actual finished tape (rather than the records) for complete programming accuracy — monthly subscription details (available to UK based disco operators only) from Roz Bea, 170a Holland Park Avenue, London W11 4UH; ‘phone 071 602 5935, fax 071 602 4338 . . . Gang Starr have been signed by Cooltempo for future UK releases . . . Musto & Bones’ ‘Dangerous On The Dancefloor (Club Remix)‘ (121½bpm) (CityBeat CBE 1253), a jauntily jittering hip house chugger all about a dirty dancer called Rita (a real crowd pleaser!), is rapped by Brooklyn’s P.C.P., while Stacey Parris slinkily sings the flip’s undulating ‘Time Is Running Out (Club Remix)‘ (94½bpm) . . . Carleen Anderson, vocalist on the Young Disciples’ Get Yourself Together’, is the daughter of James Brown’s former Famous Flames sidekick Bobby Byrd and Vicki Anderson . . . Kickin/GTi Records’ new act The Kick Squad appears to be The Scientist again, joined by a couple of cronies . . . Eve Gallagher’s ‘Love Come Down’ (More Protein PROT 612), fully reviewed a fortnight ago, as suspected is not out commercially until November 19, while Johnetta Alston’s ‘Keep The Fire Burning (The Slamming Club Mix)’ (Global Village NORX 1), reviewed three weeks ago, is just out now . . . 2 In A Room’s infectiously jumpy ‘Wiggle It‘ (reviewed w/e Aug 25) always deserved more attention here and indeed has topped the US Club Play chart in Billboard . . . N.W.A.’s amusingly smutty ‘Just Don’t Bite It‘ appears to have so outraged most of the main, middle of the road, UK record retailing chains that they have refused to stock the ‘100 Miles And Runnin” EP which contains it — with slightly warped logic (when you think about it), the group has officially responded to the ban by stating, “If people don’t like it, they can s*** my d***!” . . . Massivo member Jon Jules has had to have nine teeth extracted —ouch! . . . Cleveland Area DJ Association’s now national Disc Jockey Kidney Machine Trust Fund is only a few hundred pounds short of its £7,000 target, thanks most recently to donations from Cliff Richard and many others at the Light Sound Show ’90 . . . A Homeboy, A Hippie And A Funki Dredd PA this Thursday (Nov 8) at Brixton’s The Fridge . . . Chris Brown starts The Fire underground dance music night for dressed up over-21s this Friday (9) at Masquerade in Bracknell’s The Point . . . Blackburn’s Ian ‘DJ IMC’ McIntyre starts jocking this Friday and Saturday, with upfront Thursday from next week too, at Whalley’s brand new Club Rendezvous . . . Mark Kavanagh is joined by Chris Lovechild presenting a strictly upfront Hype! night 11pm until late every Tuesday in Dublin’s Judge Roy Bean’s, and by other guest DJs for an uptempo Rave Central! night 8pm until late every Thursday in Dunlaoghaire’s The Pirates’ Den . . . Jeff Thomas is back on the track with a no dress restriction upfront Friday Thang again, as well as Mondays, at Swansea’s Martha’s Vineyard . . . Jerry Hipkiss, now in charge of music programming at Severn Sound FM, has restarted at Cheltenham’s Gas playing the more soulful good stuff Fridays and Saturdays . . . Edinburgh’s Donny Hughes, formerly world famous as club jock DJ Shuggy (well, he had his photo on this page once!), is now the weekday mid-afternoon presenter on Radio Forth and was really chuffed when Phonogram flew him down to London and back just for an Oleta Adams reception . . . cellnet’s jaunty TV jingle, the 1948 recorded Blossom Dearie/Betty Boop-type artfully “little girl” voiced and lightly quickstepping piano trio backed Rose Murphy ‘Busy Line‘ (around 99¾/199½bpm) has been seven inched by RCA (PB 44087) and could be useful fun for more adventurous jocks . . . DAMN’ FINE!
DEEE-LITE ‘Power Of Love (Sampladelic Remix)’ (121½bpm) (Elektra EKR117T)
One of the many house tracks from their LP, this episodically surging breezy leaper rambles around loosely spurting off in different directions while following perhaps too rigidly the conventions of its pure house style, without adding enough of the zany individuality that made ‘Groove Is In The Heart’ such a standout delight — which is not to mean that it won’t be some sort of an automatic crossover hit as follow-up, now that it’s finally out this week, more that were it by anyone else it would likely remain a specialist underground seller. Maybe in recognition of this, (with a tempoless Loveapella too) it’s coupled by both the samples woven short but ultra funky rumbling ‘Deee-Lite Theme (Global Village Mix)‘ (99bpm), and instrumental bumpily bounding bright ‘Build A Bridge (Cross Cultural Mix)‘ (120-120¼bpm), neither on vinyl before.
KAMIKAZE ONE 85 featuring THE BEATLES ‘The Beatles Juice E.P.’ (Parlophone 12R6272)
Don’t bother trying to order it from EMI because, despite the supposed label and catalogue number (and nice cartoon cover illustration), this — as exclusively warned five weeks ago — is the Beatles bootleg, adding the usual funky drummer beat to the studio out-take chatter introed ‘Yesterday’ (96¾bpm), with its new Instrumental (97bpm), coupled by an “ignition sequence” countdown introed but then more drearily tempoed ‘Because’ (78¾bpm), with its Instrumental (78½bpm) too. Collectors, of course, will kill for it!
L.A. MIX ‘Mysteries Of Love’ (101bpm) (A&M/PM AMYDJ 707)
Promoed ahead of commercial release in three weeks, Les & Emma Adams’ follow-up to the distinctly street cred ‘Coming Back For More’ is a possibly even more street cred gorgeous sinuous jogger soulfully wailed by Chaka Khan backing singer Beverly Brown through an attractively weaving arrangement, punctuated by some oddly enunciated D Marcus C rap (almost phonetic sounding although he’s from Eltham!), in Premier, Tougher, Instrumental and 7″ Version Mixes, another London radio smash!
DIMPLES D ‘A Witch For Love (Sucker DJ)’ (107¾bpm) (Italian Baia Degli Angell BDA 001)
Possibly bootlegged in Italy as on both sides of the record in the same so called Strega Mix, this Ben Liebrand remixed girl rapper’s madly jaunty ‘I Dream Of Jeannie’ TV theme backed bouncing early Eighties-type leaper is in fact due out here as ‘Sucker DJ’ (fbi FBI 11T, via Spartan), serviced only on seven inch so far, and is so catchy it has to be an instant crossover smash!
CARTOUCHE ‘Feel The Groove’ (123bpm) (Dutch CIM 78698)
Created by Serge Ramaekers and the DJs from a club called Cartouche, this simple girl chanted and piano pounded frantic Italo house type whomper is punctuated by all sorts of familiar exhortations, with an Instrumental flip in which a vocoder snarled refrain shows up more, and exploded a week ago as the hottest import at many shops here.
DOUBLE DEE featuring Dany ‘Found Love’ (US Epic 49 73548)
About since mid-summer on Italian import and now selling as a US six-tracker with additional (still Italian) mixes, this guttural Davide Domenella & Donato Losito chanted, latin piano jangled infectious strong Italo house galloper, pausing with a chatter and piano lull towards the end of most mixes, is now in new vigorously thumping Caipirina and slow starting more soulful MoZ-Art Remixes (123¾bpm), friskily leaping pauseless percussive International Mix (125bpm), lively tight pauseless Radio Edit (123½bpm), plus the retitled though original sparsely thundering Found Dub and tempoless lush piano introed Fullhouse Mix (124¼bpm).
KRISS COLEMAN ‘Shine’ (115bpm) (US Alleviated Records ML-2210)
Possibly one of Larry ‘Mr Fingers’ Heard’s best creations ever, this classy girl moaned languidly pulsing jazz-funk loper builds up pressure as it steadily tinkles and thrums through its Extended Mix, with Robert Horton and Kriss gently chatting and giggling towards the end, flipped by shorter Sunrise and more jerkily percussive Radio Mixes.
TURNTABLE OVERLOAD ‘T.T.O.’ (Made On Earth/Rough Trade Records MADE 003)
Looking suspiciously like another Mark Ryder creation, this originally white labelled but now fully released bleeper is in Fantasy U.F.O. mixed low frequency oscillated twittery fierce ‘T.T.O. (Rage)’ (122bpm), Mad Bastard mixed reedy synth sizzled frantic ‘T.T.O. (O.T.T.)‘ (125bpm), and Masters Of The Universe mixed more ambient fluttery pshta pshta-ed ‘T.T.O. (Shepherds Delight)‘ (119¾bpm) treatments, which rather give the game away!
PUBLIC ENEMY ‘Can’t Do Nuttin’ For Ya Man’ (Def Jam recordings 656385 6)
Although when the album version of their jauntily chanted rap was promoed as a seven inch it was announced that a Blacksmith remix would follow, the first 12 inch to appear (on promo, anyway) is remixed by (Steve) S&P Jervier, with bass frequencies and old funk samples underpinned joltingly churning Bass In Your Face 12″ and instrumental Dub In Your Face Mixes (117bpm), plus a Jackson Sisters punctuated less dense though fiercer Full Rub Mix (116¾bpm).
BEN LIEBRAND ‘Move To The Bigband’ (Epic 656393 6)
Broken up by appropriate bursts of big band brass and vocally prodded by Holland based rapping redskin Tony Scott, this infectious chunkily driving episodic lurcher is in DJ Fresh Force scratched Club (112¾bpm) and more jittery percussive Jazz (113¼bpm) Mixes — on the initial promo, anyway.
L.U.P.O. ‘Keep It Up’ (Low Spirit/yo-bro 12 YOBR 13, via Total/BMG)
By a German DJ, this chugging Balearic biggie is punctuated by a Spanish lady’s cheerful exhortations, in Bo Diddley (or is it the Smiths again?) guitar rhythm jiggled fractionally accelerating Guitar Mix (112¾bpm), bongos shuffled and piano plonked ‘Do It Again’ tempoed Extended Vocal Mix (116¾bpm), and similarly tempoed though slower ‘Sympathy For The Devil’-ish After Hours Mix (112¾bpm) treatments, white labelled for ages but finally out this week.
TEN CITY ‘State Of Mind’ (US Atlantic 82146-1)
The Byrons Stingily & Burke’s latest album has been an instant big seller, an interestingly soulful and old fashioned Seventies influenced set (often in delicate harmonies supported falsetto Sylvester style) with the datedly bounding almost ‘Space Bass’-ish ‘I Should Learn To Love You’ (124bpm), lightly smacking ‘Destiny‘ (120bpm), briskly churning ‘State Of Mind‘ (114bpm), less urgent wailing ‘Livin’ Easy‘ (110bpm), sweetly whinneyed striding ‘It Ain’t No Big Thing‘ (112¾bpm), sultrily rolling ‘Put Love Where You Want It‘ (84bpm), Brazilian jazz-funk style ‘Nothing’s Changed (instrumental)‘ (118bpm), loping early EWF-ish ‘Superficial People‘ (105bpm), and tightening up current ‘Whatever Makes You Happy‘ (119¾bpm).
GWEN GUTHRIE ‘Miss My Love’ (112¾bpm) (:reprise W9763T)
Co-produced by Gwen with Sly & Robbie and remixed by Yvonne Turner, this percussively shuffling wriggler rambles on perhaps a bit too repetitively and lacks the grit needed to be another ‘Ain’t Nothing Goin’ On But The Rent’, some rap breaks by Queen Latifah that previously only interspersed its Urban Mix and Urban Dub now however being woven into a brighter brand new B-side Latifah’s Groove (112¼bpm).
STEEL GRAY ‘Do You Want To Dance?’ (US D.J. International Records DJ 936)
Created by Wayne & Duayne Gray, with help from Joe Smooth, this alarmingly squeaky Linda Swift wailed attractive house canterer is in breezily chugging Rocky Jones (121¼bpm), flute tones tootled scurrying Loftis (121bpm), piano tinkled cymbal shushed instrumental Tyree (121½bpm), and jazzy guitar picked instrumental Joe Smooth (121bpm) Mixes.
MONIE LOVE ‘Down To Earth (Touch Down Mix)’ (123¼bpm) (Cooltempo COOLX 222)
Combining what sound like the Lonnie Liston Smith ‘Expansions’ bassline and Roy Ayers Ubiquity “hey uhh what you say, c’mon” chant, her album sampler’s word spitting hot hip house flier now fairly streaks through its superb bounding new remix, less jauntily coupled by harder driving Count Down Mix (123¾bpm) and Cool As … Mix (123bpm) alternatives, promoed probably some weeks ahead of full release.
BIG DADDY KANE ‘Cause I Can Do It Right’ (108¼bpm) (US Cold Chillin’ 0-21763)
Starting with “say yay yay yeah” repetition, Bad Boy Kane’s churningly rolling bragging droll rap is largely backed through simple slippery scratching by what sounds like comb and paper or a kazoo, flipped by the tersely tough jolting slow funky ‘Dance With The Devil‘ (95¼bpm), both in their Album Versions with disjointed Instrumentals too.
CHUBB ROCK ‘Treat ‘Em Right’ (US Select FEP 9063)
The 6′ 3¼” tall chunky rapper’s six track EP kicks off with its title track, a chanting “yo!” prodded hoarsely wordy bright funkily chugging jiggler (117¼-117½bpm) also in a bonus more urgent jerkily swirling Cribb Mix (117¼bpm), followed by the break beats punctuated jolting ‘Keep It Street‘ (109¼bpm), bass rumbled rolling ‘Regiments Of Steel‘ (98bpm), black pride preaching jittery ‘What’s The Word‘ (100bpm) and similarly pithy burbling ‘The Organizer‘ (104¼bpm).
LOGIC ‘The Difference’ (120¼bpm) (US Strictly Rhythm SR 1217)
Created by Wayne Gardiner, this ambient style synth thrummed and washed cool languid but in fact quite speedily trotting instrumental is in philosophically preambled Vocal Mix and introless A Different Mix, flipped by the similarly styled though different ‘I Got Somethin’‘ (120¼bpm) in Deep and more percussively urgent, spacey saxophone and plinking piano prodded Extended Mixes, this latter probably hottest of all.
DJ BREAKS CLASSICS ‘Vol. 3’ (US Underworld Records AP 149)
Mixed and produced by Reynald ‘Crazy Frenchman’ Deschamps — with thanks to ‘Pal Joey’ Longo, Tony Humphries and Vince Montana — this samples stuffed six-tracker is dominated by the Earth People’s ‘Dance’ revamping excellent ‘Earth People Dance Party Mix’ (122¼bpm), kicked off by a typically declaimed introduction to Pal Joey by James Brown’s valet Danny Ray, with an alternative ‘Earth People Party Mix — Inst.’ too, plus the striding MFSB-ish ‘Philly Mix 1891’ (118¼bpm), slickly woven ‘House Master Groove (Tonight)‘ (120¼bpm), stark snappily chugging ‘Eurofunk‘ (110½bpm), and percussively jiggling ‘Soul Bonus Beat’ (90bpm). Spot the sources for yourself!
MENTAL MAYHEM ‘Where Are They Hiding’ (123bpm) (US Atmosphere Records AT-4)
Created by Frankie ‘Bones’ & Joey Beltram, this breathy gruff muttering punctuated shuffling bleeper on the “E” Side is perhaps less hot than Joey’s solo simpler and brighter throbbing and bleeping ‘Joey’s Riot‘ (126bpm) on the flip, or “X” Side, both refreshingly in just one mix (at 45rpm).
LOOSE ENDS ‘Love’s Got Me (Extended Version)’ (106½bpm) (Ten Records TENX 330)
Not one of producer/singer Carl McIntosh’s very best tracks on Loose Ends’ good album, but not bad either, this wriggly tapping funky drum jiggled repetitive Marvin Gaye-ishly accented swingbeat jitterer is flipped by its Dub Version plus the simple jazzy lush samples repeating mesmerically atmospheric ‘Feel The Vibe…‘ (95¾/48bpm), out this week.
PARADISO ‘Here We Go Again’ (Boy’s Own Productions BOIX 3, via ffrr)
Snapped up from Italy’s DiscoMagic label, this Minotti/Lombardoni/Carrasco created fairly corny phonetically prodded striding chugger is in a Stairway To Heaven Mix (114½bpm) — with some tinkling tubular bells but no trace of Led Zep! — or a perhaps preferable instrumental more sturdily pushing Herestrumental Mix Down Dub (113¼bpm).
PARIS ‘The Devil Made Me Do It’ (US Tommy Boy/Scarface Records TB-962)
Nothing to do with any techno singing ladies from the Great Lakes, this particular Paris is a guy whose droning guitar introed drily scrubbing angry rap is in Vocal and Instrumental Mixes (116bpm), foul mouthed Poach A Pig and obscenities reversing Radio Mixes (115¾bpm), plus a brief acappella Spoken Word.
MASSIVE ATTACK ‘Daydreaming’ (98bpm) (Wild Bunch Records WBRT 1, via Circa Records)
The pioneering Bristol bunch’s bumpily rumbling sinister jogger is whisperingly rapped by Tricky Kid and 3-D with some sweet cooing from Shara, flipped by its Instrumental (97¼bpm) while Horris — or should that be Horace? — Andy soulfully handles the snaredrum tapped totally remade ‘Any Love (2)‘ (102¼bpm), apparently hotter now however being the brand new Blacksmith Remixes (97¼bpm) (Wild Bunch Records WBRR 1) with ‘Daydreaming’ in the Brixton team’s slightly reggae-ish stark tripping mechanical percussion dominated and bass thrummed Luv It Mix, Luv It Dub, and similar though gentler Brixton Bass Mix.
SOUL II SOUL ‘Missing You’ (93bpm) (Ten Records TENX 345)
Out next week, their album’s Kym Mazelle wailed soulful jogger is now in new slinkily but solidly pushing Thumpin’ Bass, sexually healing “get up, get up” whispering started The Healer Instrumental, and sparsely delicate percappella type Humanity Mixes, coupled as a bonus with —recently hot on import — the Marcia Lewis sung, traffic noises introed, beefily bounding ‘People (Club Mix)‘ (114¾bpm). Great value vinyl that’s obviously gonna fly!
THREE GENERATIONS featuring CHEVELL ‘Superlover (Club Mix)’ (120-120¼bpm) (US Atlantic 0-86125)
Ramblingly wailed by a plaintive garage-type girl, this bounding bass bomped percolating burbler comes across best if you can get lost in its groove, flipped by the sparsely pulsing and stuttering semi-instrumental ‘Get It Off (Underground Mix)‘ (124½bpm), punctuated by inadvertently jogged stylus effects.
JOE SMOOTH ‘I’m Not Givin’ Up’ (116¾bpm) (US D.J. International Records DJ 929)
With guitar and keyboards by Steel Gray’s Duayne and Wayne respectively, this Joe Smooth created friskily lurching strider is stridently nagged by wailingly warbling Leveeta Reneé Mohannon (a background vocalist on Ten City’s album too) in its Deep Mix and more tightly twittery 7″ Edit, with a variously keyboarded instrumental Piano Mix, flipped by the AA-sided ambiently throbbing ‘One Moment In Love’ (121bpm) in House and Instrumental Mixes.
