People who buy this crap don`t know shit about house music.
One of the weakest edits I´ve ever heard.

whats the HYPE here. REALLY. i have this. got it on ebay for what it should cost. seems like a ton of hype to me...

On the other hand..... a beautiful package, well pressed, simple label and the quality of the track in those grooves is spot on.

Such wonderful music! There can't be more soul in a House record ever. But so expensive... So, anyone in the mood to trade this for one or two other good records, rather than selling it for money? Gimme a sign, I got great wax to offer, also beyond what I have for sale, check my collection!

This version pressed on inferior quality (thinner) vinyl to original Shoes 001 release. I have both copies and wouldn't recommend the re-press due to this.

A "Bangin Edit" indeed. All the charm and momentum gets banged out of the original without even the slightest sense for dramaturgy here. As if that wouldn't already destroy the track enough, the additional 808 bassdrums added on top after four minutes perfectly conclude the damage done.

That's because "Shades Of Jae" is not just about the bangin' - it's also about the yearning!
And without the yearning, the bangin' isn't any fun either.

Yes, the original "Shades Of Jae" playfully builds around the moments when the bassdrum kicks in. However, it's not the presence of the bassdrum itself which sets the dancefloor on fire.
It's the moment when it kicks back in, in context with the whole build-up before, with the constant change of the mix throughout the track, with that relentless "stop-and-go" groove permanently surprising the dancer into complete submission.

The male vocal (which, interestingly, the clumsy edit mostly omits) subtly supports the frenzy the original track creates on the dancefloor:
"You know I love you ...
and I missed you, baby ...
when you left ...
and I yearned all week, baby ...
for you to come home!"

Funny enough, these longing words of love might also mirror the feelings of the people on the dancefloor yearning for the beat to come back.
But there's definitely more to it than just a bassdrum.

Go for the original!

This particular pressing has a good downbeat style on the b side, kdj 23b, which samples a Carl Craig track 'suspiria' from his 'more songs about food and revolutionary art' lp. It's worth a check if you enjoy his slower grooves.

The king of detroit house, Moodymanns legacy amongst the masses is certainly owed to this release, which although as drawn out in style as his other releases, owes its success to well sampled jazz and punchy cheeky construction, leaving you pre-emptive of the tune ahead.
