BEATS & PIECES
THIS COLUMN was the first to reveal back in October 1988, after I’d met him in Hamburg, that the rapping on ‘Girl You Know It’s True’ was actually by Charles Edward Shaw (from Houston, Texas, although based since 1978 in Mannheim, Germany), who is currently being named as one of the anonymous real vocalists behind Milli Vanilli now that their producer Frank Farian finally has confessed what has been suspected for the last two years, that prettily dreadlocked Rob Pilatus and Fab Morvan. despite fronting the group with their fancy dance steps, never in fact sang a single note on any of their recordings — Farian reportedly said he was forced to disclose the deception when the duo insisted on singing their next single . . . Nomad featuring MC Mikee Freedom’s terrifically infectious ‘(I Wanna Give You) Devotion‘ has been deleted already after only two weeks of full release, but is scheduled for early January reissue in additional new mixes, Rumour Records reckoning that — despite rave reaction for the original — it was getting buried by the seasonal build-up of big name, disco megamix, and gimmick hits (new promos should be due before Christmas) . . . Double Dee featuring Dany’s ultra catchily galloping ‘Found Love’, now it’s out here (Epic 656376 6), is in its US released vigorously thumping Caipirina and slow starting more soulful MoZ-Art Remixes (123¾bpm), friskily leaping percussive International Mix (125bpm), plus the original Italian pressing’s retitled sparsely thundering Found Dub (124¼bpm) . . . Champion owner Mel Medalie obviously read the message to A&R men etched in the actual vinyl of D-Zone Records’ pressing, because he has snapped up and already rushed out Bassix’s ‘Close Encounters‘ (CHAMP 12-270), as before in Club, Bassix and Dub Mixes (now all 124¼bpm) . . . Massonix’s recently reviewed ‘Just A Little Bit More‘, now it’s out commercially (Noise Records NNR 512, via Rough Trade), is in speeded up more beefily remixed Denise Johnson Vocal (95½bpm) and Radio (93½bpm) Mixes, plus its original Electro Instrumental Mix (93¼bpm), coupled (without any Barrington Stewart) by the wukka-wukked jaggedly jangling instrumental ‘R.O.2.R.’ (121bpm) . . . Less Stress’s ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’ seems naggingly familiar because of course it was originally a hit by Crowded House . . . Steve Wolfe has taken over club promotion at A&M, as well as dance music A&R there, now that Bob Masters just handles radio promotion . . . Maria Whittaker has been signed by Slamm Records (one of Urban/Polydor’s new dance labels), which may be why she was checkin’ the scene at the Prestatyn weekender! . . . Teddy Riley, apparently now no longer partnered by Gene Griffin, is starting his own The Future label . . . Network/Kool Kat owner Neil Rushton has opened a recording studio and office complex on Hudson Street in New York, base also of the new Hudson Street Productions who have already signed Pandella, Keia Weiss, and the cleverly named 2-NYC (“too nice”) . . . Lenny D, currently in London for a couple of weeks, during which he’ll be jocking at (amongst others) Soho’s Brain this Friday (Nov 30) and Colchester’s The Institute this Saturday (Dec 1), is open for remixing offers at Orinoco Mix on 071-232 0008 . . . Nexus 21 in turn tour the US during January, playing in New York, Detroit, Chicago. Dallas and Los Angeles . . . Capital FM presenter Mick Brown reports that as Mick & Pat’s ‘Use It Up And Wear It Out’ is currently at number four on a Boston radio station, it could become a US hit . . . Starpoint (Weekend) Radio this weekend celebrates its fifth birthday before closing down soon on 93.2fm to campaign instead for a legal black music radio licence in the Windsor, Slough and Maidenhead area . . . Eastern Bloc have defected, or, rather, moved as of this Wednesday (28) into two new side by side shops at 5/6 Central Buildings in Oldham Street, Manchester, one stocking all types of dance and the other both UK and US indie material . . . Max and Dave (not the Hardrock Soul Movement!) are running a branch of Rayners Lane’s Record & Disco Centre from an outdoor stall every Saturday in Ealing Broadway Market (behind the Cannon cinema), stocking upfront newies and exclusive rarities . . . Rocky & Diesel, Steve Lee and Brandon Block this Thursday (29) Break Free! at the Basement on Shepherds Bush Green . . . The Farm play live with Terry Farley, Johnny Walker and Phil Perry at Nottingham’s Venus this Friday (30) . . . Soul II Soul have left their residency at Brixton’s The Fridge, where instead Rose Windross and Ralph Chillin co-host Fridays as of this week . . . Soul II Soul, Rebel MC, Loose Ends, Deee-Lite, Unique 3, MA.C., Donna Gardier, Blue Pearl and T.D.C. all have remixes out . . . David Lynch & Angelo Badalamenti’s haunting smoochy ‘Twin Peaks Theme‘, the preferable instrumental flip of Julee Cruise’s ‘Falling‘ (Warner Bros W9544T), at around 36bpm might synch nicely over a 71¾bpm funky drummer track if such exists but in any case is real ambient — how long before someone does get around to recording it with an added rhythm? . . . DAMN’ FINE!
THE YOUNG ONE RETIRES
Jeff Young, who presents Radio 1’s The Big Beat show every Friday, is to retire from DJ-ing completely at the end of the year to concentrate on his role as Head of A&R for A&M Records. Jeff has presented The Big Beat, the only national dance music programme, since it began three years ago, establishing it as essential listening for dance fans across the country. Pete Tong, who for the past three years has presented Capital Radio’s The Session show, has been appointed to take over presentation of The Big Beat from the beginning of January.

KC FLIGHTT ‘Jump For Joy’ (US RCA/Popular 2629-1-RD)
The hip house pioneering rapper returns with this frenetically scurrying nervy galloper in Club Mix, Underground Dub (125½bpm) and Airwave Mix (125¾bpm), coupled also by the (surely older?) girls prodded wrigglier then sultry reggae dubwise halftempo ‘Hot Days Of Summer’ (126bpm).
4 HERO ‘Combat Dancin” (Reinforced RIVET 1203, via Pacific)
Introed and punctuated by chilling “Mr Kirk?” “Yes” “Your son is dead” “Dead? H-h-how?” “He died of an overdose, come down to the station house” dialogue that I can remember already having detailed in full several years ago (but of course I cannot remember now what it was from then!), the instant smash from this three tracker is the bleeping and booming ‘Mr. Kirk’s Nightmare’ (123½bpm), an obvious attention grabber that has exploded following Kiss 100 fm play, flipped by the bass farted funky drummered rapping ‘Move Wid The House Groove‘ (113bpm), and samples woven derivative sparse disjointed jittery ‘Combat Dance‘ (121½bpm). Meanwhile, there’s already a rival frequency response test introed then “Mr Kirk” dialogue repeating, bleeps and low frequencies filled
ROOTS # SOUL ‘Mr Kirk vs The Real Bassline’ (119¾bpm) (SBP 003),
white labelled with an untitled good bleeps and bass farts woven light tuneful instrumental canterer as flip.
CYCLONE ‘A Place Called Bliss (Last Thursday Mix)’ (125½bpm) (Network NWKT 14, via Pinnacle Recuts)
Created, with assistance from Nexus 21, by techno obsessed computer operator Geoff Hibbert (a regular at DJ Kid Smurf’s Bliss club, in Leicester’s Streetlife, hence the track’s name), this slow atmospherically droning then bubbly percolating techno bounder drops some familiar snippets in a demonstration of crossfade cut mixing before its bleeping then odd slow again finale, with a freakier, bleepier and beefier Dub Mix (125¾bpm) flip. Teasingly promoed at first, it’s now out fully.
SEAL ‘Crazy (Extended Version)’ (102¾bpm) (ZTT ZANG 8T)
The guy called Seal who sang Adamski’s ‘Killer’ now solos on this Trevor Horn produced moody slow started then funky drum driven hoarsely groaning and sombrely droning, churning and building dramatic pop jiggler, flipped by his self produced trickier initially guitar backed then bumpily instrumental Acoustic Version (87/43½-102¾bpm) and loosely galloping ‘Sparkle (Extended Version)‘ (127½bpm).
INNOCENCE ‘A Matter Of Fact (Classic Club Mix)’ (82bpm) (Cooltempo COOLX 223)
Sweetly warbled by Gee Morris as ever but even slinkier than usual, this Frankie Knuckles remixed lovely slow piano and synthetic strings backed dreamy swayer is coupled by Jolley Harris Jolley’s own more languidly drifting Extended Mix, plus the jazzily saxed attractive rolling instrumental ‘Reflections‘ (105¾bpm).
MACEO PARKER ‘Let ‘Em Out’ (111bpm) (4th + B’way 12 BRW 203)
James Brown’s legendary saxist is supported by fellow JB alumni Fred Wesley, Bootsy Collins (who co-produced with Bill Laswell) and Famous Flames vocalist Bobby Byrd on this ‘Soul Power’ rhythm driven terrific marathon jittery funk groove (Bobby rapping “Hey judge, don’t be a jerk, let the man out, so we can go to work!” in a reference to the continued incarceration of Mr Brown, whom the track is all about despite its plural title), with Bernie Worrell joining in on the flip’s P’funkily half-steppin’ ‘Sax Machine‘ (106bpm) and Sly Stone helping create the gently weaving bluesy sweet ‘Tell The World’ (79¼bpm). George Clinton and Deee-Lite join in on Maceo’s upcoming album, too. Get on up and get involved!
SEDUCTION ‘Breakdown (Clivilles/Cole Club/Dub Mix)’ (106½bpm) (A&M/PM AMY 577)
Originally a twin-packed double 12 inch on import back in August, this caterwauling girl group’s excitingly jittered, scratched and samples washed bright rap judderer is here merely flipped by the infectious nursery chant introed ‘Groove Me‘ in its jauntily lurching twittery Dub Mix (120½bpm), which in fact is anxiously vocal.
BETTY BOO ’24 Hours’ (106bpm) (Rhythm King LEFT 45T)
Slowing down from her previous pop hits, this William Orbit remixed almost go go-ish jaunty jiggler chugs along catchily as one might expect, but with more maturity — and a more trickily jittering good Instrumental flip.
LALAH HATHAWAY ‘Baby Don’t Cry’ (82½bpm) (US Virgin 0-96415)
Remixed by Frankie Knuckles (with percussion by David Morales — and some nagging little chimes borrowed from ‘Strawberry Letter 23’!), this Angela Winbush created sultrily swaying soulful groin grinder is in Crybaby Club, sparsely tapping instrumental Sleeze, and much edited Radio Versions, flipped by the Jaki Graham oldie reviving ‘Heaven Knows’ in brand new chunkily shuffling Yvonne Turner 12″ (with a jiggly dubwise last part), 7″ (both 96¼bpm), and Instrumental (95¾bpm) remixes, selling well to black music lovers.
ALISON WILLIAMS ‘I Need Your Baseline’ (90bpm) (REMIX 002)
With D-Zone like messages etched into the vinyl to correct the fact that the matrices were muddled up, this under-the-counter remix now sets ‘I Need Your Lovin” to speaker distortingly boomed low frequency bass, flipped by the ‘In The Air Tonight’ revamping now funky drum backed PHIL COLLINS ‘Air-Express Yourself Tonite‘ (97¾bpm), which might be more useable.
BLACK BOX ‘The Total Mix’ (118¾-102¼bpm) (de/Construction Records PT 44236)
Following the current pop chart trend for megamixed past hits, here comes what on the face of it ought to be a potential Technotronic rivalling medley of all Black Box’s hits, but it’s surprisingly bland being set mainly at the cantering ‘Everybody Everybody’ tempo (with a fractional dip in the middle), saving the most instantly recognisable ‘Ride On Time’ until the end before an awkward final transition down into ‘Fantasy’ — and already the flip’s remixed jerkily chugging ‘I Don’t Know Anybody Else’ (120bpm) seems to be getting more support from many, ahead of full release next week.
GANG STARR ‘Just To Get A Rep’ (102bpm) (US Chrysalis V 23620)
DJ Premier and The Guru make their new label debut with a languidly weaving but spine chilling message rap about the way a mugger can casually move up to murder just to increase his reputation amongst his peers, while they bring the noise (an excellent sustained whining scratch) in the more funkily rolling ‘Who’s Gonna Take The Weight?‘ (105¾bpm) (respective Instrumentals too).
PROJECT 1 ‘Project 1 EP’ (Tam Tam Records TTT 033, via Pacific)
There are bleeps with everything but interestingly not everything is uptempo on Marc Williams & Tony Winter’s big selling four-tracker, the friskily scurrying and tinkling ‘A Few Dollars More’ (124¾bpm) being a retitled dub remix of 4 For Money’s ‘A Moment In Time’ with a smurf rap break, coupled by the girl giggled and groaned languid then beefily rolling synth tones washed ‘Transcendental Love‘ (107¾bpm), “don’t try to cross” movie dialogue punctuated jittery twittering ‘Rush The Bridge‘ (126½bpm), and frantic funkily fluttering ‘Ferrari‘ (128½bpm).
L’F’O ‘Sonic Attack’ (124¾bpm) (Fast Forward Records BLEEP 3, via Spartan)
Les Cutmore, far from than being the “other” LFO, appears to have been first to record under that name, on an ‘Acid Mixes’ album two years ago. He now follows up ‘Brainstorm’ with this sampled grunts and comments prodded episodic friskily fluttering instrumental house bounder, flipped by the droningly buzzing and bleeping ‘Lord Of Light‘ (122bpm).
BLEEPS INTERNATIONAL ‘Beats With Bleeps’ (Fast Forward Records BLEEP 2, via Spartan)
Seemingly created entirely by Les Cutmore (usefully, and by lucky chance, his real name!), this self descriptively titled album features Bleeps International’s video games bleeped — as is much on the set — ‘Bleeps International’ (122½bpm) and Asdic pinging atmospheric slow ‘Voyage To Atlantis‘ (71½bpm), LFO’s twittery pulsing ‘Brainstorm‘ (122½bpm) and fluttery buzzing ‘Lord Of Light’ (122¼bpm), Binary 4’s jiggly “I’ve got the power” repeating ‘Power Surge‘ (121½bpm), Ice’s gently burbling ‘Still Dreamin‘ (110¼bpm), Resonance’s tinkly striding ‘Square Waves‘ (121bpm), Warrior’s blippy loping ‘War Games‘ (120¾bpm), Red Zone’s dit de ditting though smoothly flowing ‘Morse Code‘ (122¼bpm), and Sample & Hold’s Asdic pinging breezy ‘Earth Calling‘ (122¼bpm).
BOTANY 5 ‘Love Bomb (The Slam Production)’ (106¾bpm) (Virgin VST 1250)
Gordon Kerr, Dave Marin, Jason Robertson and Steven Christie’s mesmeric steadily shuffling Soul II Soul tempo chugger with repetitive frequency shifting bleeps and brief bursts of mournful chorus is flipped now by its less cool indie-type fully vocal 7″ Version (108¾bpm), plus the slinkily weaving pleasant breathily intoned ‘Satellite‘ (81¾bpm), although the promo was flipped instead by additional totally different L.F.O. remixed jerkily twittering LFO Mix 3 and blippy bounding LFO Mix 1 versions (126bpm).
VANILLA ICE ‘Ice Ice Baby (Miami Drop Mix)’ (115¾bpm) (SBK 12SBK 18)
America’s latest pop-rap crossover sensation, looking more like (to draw an apt historical analogy) the Pat Boone rather than Elvis Presley of rap, this cleanly chiselled pretty white boy’s Queen & David Bowie ‘Under Pressure’ bassline based rap topped the US chart and here too is proving to have more New Kids On The Block type pop than street cred appeal, coupled with (originally the A-side until flipped by a radio jock in Georgia) a rap adaptation of Wild Cherry’s ‘Play That Funky Music (White Boy)‘ (100bpm), plus their Instrumentals.
LOFTIS III featuring Andrea ‘Don’t Want To Be Right’ (124bpm) (US D.J. International Records DJ 938)
Created by Craig B. Loftis with help from Joe Smooth and Nouveaux Nation, this flurrying bright strider stridently wailed by Andrea from Clazzique is more garage than house, in Loftis Club, Joe Smooth, Radio Edit, jangly Warehouse Instrumental Mixes, and a sparsely thumping dubwise Fast Eddie Mix (124¼bpm).
VIRTUAL ENERGY ‘Infinite’ (124½bpm) (Energy Records ENERG 001, via Rough Trade)
Recorded in Leigh, near Manchester, this juddery bass thrummed surging electro house instrumental does twitter a bit but is more techno than bleep, with stuttery bursts of sampled chatter and a French accordion outro, flipped by the similarly thrummed though more Belgian style ‘High’ (127¾bpm) and throbbing fast melodic ‘GSI‘ (126¾bpm).
TECHNO GROOVES ‘Mach 2’ (Belgian R & S Records RS 930)
Quite a beefy Belgian techno/hardbeat/house six tracker, with the “I am not so selfish” repeating bassily scrubbing ‘I’m Not So Selfish’ (124bpm), rhythmically ‘Let’s Start The Dance’-ish though washing machine style thudding ‘Bubbles‘ (126¼bpm), angry ‘Techno Trance’-type thumping ‘T.E.C.H.N.I.D.‘ (124bpm), choirboy (girl?) punctuated wriggly flurrying ‘Hiawa‘ (126¼bpm), bass throbbed jauntily scurrying ‘Release Your Self‘ (126¼bpm), “let me know what you’ve done to them” repeating and Stones “whoop-whoo” punctuated vigorously driving ‘Sympathy For House‘ (124bpm).
KING BEE featuring Michele ‘Must Bee The Music’ (116bpm) (Dutch Torso Dance 12175)
With a plaintive nasally wailing girl’s title line and verses between bursts of Prhyme and Allstar Fresh’s enthusiastic male rap, this bumpily wriggling frenetic jiggler is in Club and phasing started The Breakbeat Got Lost In The Freestyle Mixes, warm for a while, flipped by the guys’ “too bad” prodded bassily rolling brassy funk ‘Havin’ A Good Time‘ (104bpm) in New Jack Sting and New Jack Stingstrumental versions.
AMBIENCE ‘African Love Affair (Town Mix)’ (119½bpm) (Raw Bass 12 R BASS 007)
Borrowing several familiar elements, this wriggly trotting little chugger starts in clichéd “wooh yeah” style before easing into a lush strings tones backed pleasant female vocal, still with its jittery drive and “it began in Africa” punctuations, flipped by percussively different Vibration and Dub instrumental Jungle Mixes.
MADONNA ‘Justify My Love (Remix)‘
VARIOUS ‘Rewind‘ (RePublic Records LICLP 035, via Rough Trade)
An album of eight remixed relatively recent club classics, half of which have also been promoed on a 12 inch (not for release), Dave Lee & Mark Ryder’s girls cooed slick jiggly striding SIMPHONIA ‘Can’t Get Over Your Love (Masters Of The Universe Mix)‘ (120¼bpm), Nightmares On Wax’s tin can clanking breathy guy whispered LOGARHYTHM ‘Jungle (N.O.W. Mix)’ (120bpm), Rheji Burrell’s soulfully bounding PHASE II ‘Reachin’ (N.Y. Housin’ Mix)‘ (120¼bpm), Andrew Komix’s bleeping RAVEN MAIZE ‘Forever Together (Ko-Mix)‘ (122½bpm), all the above being ¼bpm faster on the LP, only on which are also Joey Longo’s lushly pulsing COOKIE ‘Choose Me (4 AM Mix)‘ (120bpm), Blacksmith’s jiggly leaping ROQUI ‘Lover (Brixton Bass Mix)‘ (120¾bpm), Tommy Musto & Frankie Bones’ infectious hip house M-D-EMM ‘Get Hip To This (Manic Mix)‘ (122¼bpm), A Guy Called Gerald’s tappingly trotting TURNTABLE ORCHESTRA ‘You’re Gonna Miss Me (Funky Sax Mix)‘ (115¼bpm), not all necessarily released for the first time in these mixes but quite a collection of talent, you must agree?
BASS-O-MATIC ‘Ease On By (Ram Factor 10 Mix)’ (69bpm) (Guerilla Records GRRR 8, via Virgin)
William Orbit returns in unexpected style with Sharon Musgrave sweetly muttering and wailing this Phill Chill mixed juddery slow reggae-ish swayer, flipped by the Orbit mixed deceptively double-tempoed jittery ragga/bleep fusing ‘Rat Cut-A-Bottle‘ (99¾bpm) and, most useful of the lot, samples woven beefily chugging episodic clever ‘Twilight’-ish jaunty ‘Soul Surrender‘ (104¾bpm), only on promo so far.
DEPTH CHARGE ‘Dead By Dawn’ (90¾bpm) (Vinyl Solution STORM 15, via SRD)
J. Saul Kane’s latest quirky creation is a blood curdlingly introed and horror movie dialogue interspersed sinister roller with pauses in its rhythm during the effects, not perhaps the world’s greatest dancer but intriguing good fun for horror fans, flipped (at 33⅓rpm) by a rumbling ‘Dead By Dub‘ (91bpm) plus the space noises overdubbed fiercely churning ‘Space Mutant‘ (121¾bpm).
GREAT NORTHERN ELECTRICS ‘Sundays Child’ (Polydor PZ 111)
This gloomily groaned and Mamas & Papas-ishly harmonised jiggly indie dancer from North London, rather than the electro bleeper from up North that their name might have led one to expect, was originally white labelled by the group as just GNE ‘Sundays’ but is out commercially now in its Slow Bongo Floyd Mix (117bpm), Holy and Matmos Mixes (116½bpm).
MEAT BEAT MANIFESTO ‘Psyche-Out (Sex Skank Strip Down)’ (113¾bpm) (Belgian Play It Again Sam Records BIAS 182 R)
Newly stripped down and remixed by Andrew Weatherall, this strange sparse monotonous throbber sounds as if the stylus is stuck before a panting girl and other punctuations are repetitively looped too, coupled with the much sampled old similarly repetitive jiggly churning frenetic ‘Radio Babylon‘ (125¾bpm).
FRANCESCO ZAPPALA’ feat. S 1000 HD ‘I Need You’ (Belgian Beat Box BB 007)
Promoed here on a Belgian pressing although probably Italian, to judge from the label copy, this ‘The Power’ tempoed juddery lurcher is huskily gargled, wailed and whooped by a gritty Black Box-ish girl in Hippy Sound and Instrumental (101bpm) versions, with seemingly unrelated pounding blippy Trip and Flip Beats (122bpm) too.
KINGS OF SWING ‘Nod Your Head To This (Norman Cook Remix)’ (106½bpm) (BumRush/Virgin America VUST 30)
Norman Cook adds ‘Stone Fox Chase’-type harmonica and bursts of ‘Jungle Book’ quoting “now I’m the king of the swingers” to an otherwise funk-blues backed jerkily thudding jittery rap judderer, flipped by its unadorned plain Instrumental (106bpm) and the female DJ plugging ‘Go Cocoa!’ (105½bpm).
