totally great album, very underrated
millions of samples put together
[like the avalanches were doing around the same time]
but so freakishly different, only P.P. Roy could do it

It's not even that dope [by Todd's stupidly high standards]
Found it in MVE in Greenwich for 50p yesterday : )
still possible to get the odd bargain in an actual shop, guys ; )
posted a comment on Rum & Black - ESQ / Slaves. about 1 year ago
The lush-as-fuck breakbeat on Slaves comes from Run DMC's 'I'm Not Going Out Like That', which became more popular in the late nineties as a tek-steppy DnB break
[it's also the break on ESQ, but mixed with half a bar of Renegade Soundwave's ... See full review

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 ; )

All tracks dope
Kelly Hunt's is a beauty [only available on this 12"]
Shake's is a fucking classic
Has that bouncy NY garagey vibe mixed with the Detroity Euro melancholia, kinda MKish : )

'That's Where It's At' is dope - tight, programmed, jacking drums with loose-as-fuck handplayed synths N piano on top

[Predominantly Funk Version] Out Come The Freaks is pretty fucking epic [12:20]

You can really hear the vocoder backing vocals on the instrumental version : )

'Physical Clash' also a lush track, not on the soundtrack...

Thought the year of release might be 1976, if 'Discovery' was an olympic theme..seems much more likely than 1971.

Well, another 10yrs on from the last review, and this all still sounds as fresh as fuck.

Hmm - strangely haunting cover image - looks to me like the poor nude lady's locked inside, depressed & possibly scared for her life..?!

posted a comment on Kold Sweat. over 3 years ago
I have a white label of KS 102 [missing here]
side one is S.L. Trooper's track 'put your brain in gear',
side two unknown, uptempo UK hip hop style, and is a rap about how good their DJ is,
["my DJ's touch" possibly the title] and says 'cut loose' a lot ... See full review

No way indeed sir! It was my shop also, even though I worked in the shitty Our Price down the road between 1991-94 !

p.s. and weirdly, when I bought this MBM 12", Grant was buying about 743 records as usual, and let me sneak in before him, nodding ... See full review
posted a comment on Just Jungle - Pause Tearout / Listen Tune. over 3 years ago
Pause Tearout is a beast of a cut-up amen tune; one final fuck-off rinse-up, coming right at the arse end of 1995, when that style was already losing it's appeal for most producers and the jump-up bollocks was the new twat on the block [for a few months]

tasty edits : )
posted a comment on Various - In The Key Of E. over 3 years ago
2 extra tracks on this CD, not on the vinyl or cassette : the excellent 'House The World' by Adonis [Gentry Ice] and the much-more-acid mix of the Miss Sticky track, both found only on this comp : )
posted a comment on Nouveax Nation* - Strip (Rock Yo Body). over 3 years ago
Another slight Prince rip-off by these chaps [When Doves Cry] but think this one's even better than '17 Daze of Acid Rain'
lovely TB-303 : )
posted a comment on Wanda Dee - To The Bone. over 3 years ago
'To The Bone' is dope [ripped-off by C&C music factory] , but THAT cover is still the best thing about this 12"
posted a comment on Speedy J - Rise. over 3 years ago
It's originally from 'Give It Up' by Kool & The Gang, but from all the crackles & compression on it I think he knicked it from 'Dope On Plastic' by Uptown

'Change Acid' is a sweet UK acid track : )

Six Brown Brothers were actually DJ Pierre & Spanky - or at least they wrote + produced all the tracks - not sure who's made this mistake here!

100 year old acid house, anyone?
No - it's not the same 'Six Brown Brothers', sadly ; )
posted a comment on Various - Acid Trax Volume 3. over 3 years ago
It's advertised as being available on CD on the back cover, but I'm certain it wasn't...the bastards!

p.s. if you click on 'Six Brown Brothers' it tells you it's Van Christie - don't think it is - pretty sure it's Spanky & DJ Pierre...
