4 Hero "Journey From The Light" is a fantastic track. Remember hearing it first at Orange @ The Rocket parties on the Holloway Road around '92'ish. I know it officially came out in '93 but dubplates and white label test pressings were the order of the ... See full review

I never knew that Raimunda Navarro covered "Jungle Fever" which is originally by Chakachas (Billy Ador from Belgium) and made in 1971.

In 1982 the Belgium producer Willy Albimoor, along English producer Alan Ward (ex-pat living in Belgium), covered ... See full review

I believe that the "Spaced Out Mix" of "Space Talk" contains a sample of High Voltage's "Somewhere Beyond" (1983) from their "Love Is The Message (Scratch The Message)" 12" single.

There are Brothers Johnson "Stomp" samples all over this track along with little reworking of the lyrics by the male rapper. The female rapper spouts out a few "yeah bwoy" Flavor Flav style lyric.

You credits Paul Scott with tracks: A2, B1 & B2. Surely he also gets credits for B3 being that the track is entitled "Paul Off Again". Just saying ;-)
posted a comment on G-Force Records UK. over 5 years ago
around 89/90 there was a G-Force fashion label (i remember their baggy jeans) and I think they had a shop on the Kings Road, London. Is there any connection between the fashion label and this music publisher?

The track "Thrills" is a cover of Chakachas "Stories", which was also covered in the late eighties by acid-jazz band Izit, also called "Stories".

All of the members of A.R. Kane (Alex Ayuli, Rudy Tambala, Russell Smith) were also involved in the cut & paste, heavy on the samples, "Pump Up the Volume" by M/A/R/R/S.

both great tracks which are essentially the same, the Dee Major version the Hip-House/Rap version, and the Jail Break being the Dub. I believe the cut-up scratch sample is Kraftwerk "The Model".

The opening tribal drums on the Smokin' Jo version appear to have been lifted from Plez's "I can't stop".

Also around 2:47 in, the drums there, appear to have sampled Backroom Productions "
Definition Of A Track".
posted a comment on Jillian Mendez - Get Up. over 6 years ago
The drums on these tracks sound very similar to Dionne's "Come Get My Lovin'", and the pipe-synth sound like Sha-lor's "I'm In Love" (Harmonic Mix). This comes as no surprise as all tracks were all released on Bigshot Records and were probably all ... See full review

checkout Stefano Breda's "Electric Fling" 1986 (1m42s in) for the inspiration for this track I'm sure! http://youtu.be/Web2WxknYYU

The title of this song, and the lyrics "make you wanna do right", surely is taken from First Choice's "Love & Happiness".

does anyone else think the bass is sort of similar to the Backroom Productions "The Definition of a Track"? Regardless great track this!
