          Larry Heard on percussion! The Prince And The Wizard The Music Is Kickin' ... Is the Wizard Jeff Mills?

            Thought we all knew it was L.B. Bad.....
            'The Wiz Is A Genius' is my fave jam, anyway
            Little known fact, the synth noise is taken from Tom Tom Club's Genius Of Love ; )

              If Todd Terry or Larry Heard had anything to do with this, I will eat my Star Wars pyjamas (In answer to Faktor14's daft comment) . All the same, The Wiz most definitely is a genius.

                Looking at the vinyl copy of The Prince & The Wizard it should be easily seen the ep was produced by The Prince Of Dance and Kut Wizard Albee.

                The song Mr. Terry Meets Mr. Fingers was produced by Kut Wizard Albee &
                The Prince Of Dance (Elbee Bad).

                The Wizard is a Hip Hop producer from Strong Island (fantastic Kut Master on the decks) whom BaD got to produce some House Music.
                The Wizards tracks were mad house, slightly similar to Todd Terry´s early works,
                so the idea came to play warm Larry Heard style keys on top of a Wizard track.
                BAM!

                Elbee BaD (The Prince) on the keys and The Wizard (real name Albee!) on the riddimz!
                Aptly and respectfully naming it Mr. Terry Meets Mr. Fingers.

                  Absolutely essential EP from two genuine house masters, Todd Terry and Larry Heard.

                  Some of the tracks are fairly hit and miss but a lot are certainly more than worthy of your time.
                  The Music is Kickin employs a loop of washing Machine by Heard over a tough 909, proper jacking style music.

                  The track on the EP that was massive around my area back in the day was 'The Wiz is a genius'. A break beat track with just a mad, bleep style noise transposing all the way through.

                  The other standout track is Mr. Terry Meets Mr. Fingers, a chunky rhythm track (most likely programmed by Terry) with some beautifully melancholy strings most likley played by Heard.

                  A fantastic collaboration combining the obvious skills of two house masters.
