posted a comment on DJ Trayze / King Most - A Little Bit Of Pun (Trayze Remix) / Don’t Try (King Most Redirection). 21 days ago
does anyone know why the tracks are given different titles on here to the titles on the actual records?
i presume the remixers had called them 'A Little Bit Of Pun' and 'Don't Try' respectively, but as they aren't actually called that on the record, ... See full review

i have a spare sealed copy of this version that i’m looking to trade for a Pray For Paris.
message me if you wish to broker a deal on that basis, but please don’t be offering me cash for it. if i’m ever selling it, i’ll put it up for sale.

mine sounds ace too, maybe Craig got a faulty press, but i’ve never had any problems with any other BBE records.
such a great compilation of tunes, many of which i could only dream of affording to buy OG’s of, so very happy to have this.

not aware of an alternative cover, did you mean the 12 release of the same name?

posted a comment on Blvd. Mosse - U Can't Escape The Hypeness. 2 months ago
the instrumental of ‘hypeness’ is definitely more of a dub than a traditional instrumental. it has elements of the vocal drifting in and out of the mix, other musical elements that are somewhat lost in the vocal mix and a intro ragga vocal that isn’t ... See full review

mine has just arrived and i’m afraid i have to echo the other comments. i’ve received 25 year old second hand records this week in better condition.
however, the music is wonderful, the pressing just doesn’t do it justice.

i agree that the Dream Mix is the one, recently played by Luke Unabomber on his selection for wwfm. plucked out of a bargain bin for 50p many years ago, but would happily pay 20 times that for it.

wtf is pop rap? cos this ain’t it ffs, when have you heard this on the radio. some of the sub genres on here are laughable.

been some bad gals bringing it over the last few years, Leikeli47 is one of them with skills and personality in abundance. this is a dope album that needs a vinyl press.

just picked up the reissue of this tune and whilst i am thoroughly enjoying it, i don't think the drums at the start sound like the OG version. they have a different swing or something. two lovely covers nonetheless.

posted a comment on Eric B. & Rakim, Mountain - Eric B Is President / Long Red. 9 months ago
much to my surprise, the version of Long Red is actually a re-edit that elongates the drum break intro to form the basis of the whole track and has a few 'Ya out there? Well clap ya hands to what he's doing, LOUDER. On tempo Jack' vocal samples thrown in ... See full review

99p!!! people are sleeping on the b-side of this record, ‘Invasion’ is like Ennio meets Shadow in a dusty Central American village and wouldn’t be out of place on a Tarantino soundtrack. snooze if you want, go ahead get some shut eye.

posted a comment on Various - Clean Up Woman (Jim Sharp Edit) / Remember Me (Jim Sharp Edit). over 2 years ago
the B-Side information is actually correct, it's an edit of the Blueboy 'Remember Me' track which sampled Marlena Shaw's 'Woman Of The Ghetto'. She never released a track called 'Remember Me'.

the tracklisting is incorrect on the labels, A5 is listed as Paradise when it is actually on the B side; track B1. the sleeve doesn't indicate which tracks are on which side either.

i don't know about all of the tracks, but there is no way that 'Straight To The Dome' is from the 88-90 period as indicated, as it references Smif-n-Wessun's 'Let's Git It On' track which didn't come out until 94. still it's a solid EP, but please be ... See full review

so how did he manage to release a record back in 1988 using the said same style then pal?

that's the point, he was ahead of his time, but wasn't afforded the same breaks that the groups you mentioned got.
