Download:Imagination & Missy Elliot – gotta keep workin’ it (greg wilson mash-up)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 31, 2011 by J.D.

In March 2004 I appeared at the Time Machine night in Nottingham, which was held at The Social. I was still very much finding my feet, having only started up again a few months beforehand, and this was one of my first handful of bookings following my comeback. It was a night run by Soul Mekanik (Kelvin Andrews and Danny Spencer), who, together with Daniel Donnachie, were the resident DJ’s.

Daniel put me up that night, and we sat up into the early hours listening to records, a few of which he was kind enough to record to CD for me. One of these was the instrumental of a PM Dawn track called ‘Gotta Be…Movin’ On Up’, which was built around the unmistakeable killer groove of ‘Just An Illusion’ by Imagination.

I can’t recall if it was a few weeks, or a few months later, but I remember driving to collect my son from Primary School listening to the CD that Daniel had done for me – I can see exactly where I was, approaching the traffic lights, about to turn right onto Queens Drive in Liverpool, where the school was, when in my minds ear I could hear Missy Elliot’s ‘Work It’ rap fitting hand in glove on top of that groove.

When I got back home I tried it out and, just as I’d envisaged, it was a perfect marriage, so I began to glue it all together. I utilized Jay-Z’s ‘Reasonable Doubt’ during the intro and the break, whilst slipping in Missy Elliot’s rap section from Tweet’s ‘Oops (Oh My)’ between the parts I’d used from ‘Work It’. A sprinkle of Sinnamon, and some suitably sensual sighs and moans further peppered up proceedings, whilst Marvin Gaye’s ‘Sexual Healing’ puts in a brief cameo via the line ‘oh baby now let’s get down tonight’ and a few ‘ooohs’.

The resulting mash-up became something of a signature track for me, especially big with the girls, and was twice pressed on ‘DJ only’ 12” – in 2006, then again in 2008. I still get asked for it now, and played it most recently over in Croatia at the Garden Festival.

I originally listed the artist name as Dawn Elliot & Co, and it was later pressed on limited vinyl as Young Dog Alien (this is how it appears in the tracklisting of my Radio 1 Essential Mix from 2009), however, here I’ve settled on its most recognisable elements, Imagination & Missy Elliot.

I later put together a further version that features the vocal of ‘Just An Illusion’ before Missy’s rap kicks in. It was available here for a period last year – I’ll re-upload at some point.

George Fitzgerald -Fernweh / Hearts on ManMakeMusic

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on July 15, 2011 by J.D.

Release date:05-Sep-2011
ManMakeMusic first made their name running a series of eponymous parties in London’s East End which showcased the best of low-end heavy electronic music. Given that the collective contained within their ranks a number of budding producers, the step over to label territory was always on the cards. George FitzGerald, who heads up the label, was behind the crew’s first mysterious release earlier this year, a refix of Groove Theory’s ‘Tell Me’ that sold-out within a matter of days. ManMakeMusic are now back for more, beginning the label series in earnest with some original material from George that sums up what these guys have been about from the beginning: real-deal dance music that tracks the borderlines of house, garage and techno.

George’s releases on Hotflush and Aus this year have consolidated his reputation as one of a small set of producers from London whose tracks translate in to dancefloor capital outside of British borders. This record travels deeper in to the territory of house-dubstep cross-pollination than George’s previous excursions. A-side ‘Fernweh’ is an intricate work of ecstatic synths tempered with a rock solid groove that betrays George’s UK sensibilities. On the flip, ‘Hearts’ ramps up the energy levels with tough percussion and the trademark FitzGerald vocal wizardry.

Rico Casazza – Flutes Liebe EP(Bearight,Brendon Moeller remixes)

Rico Casazza’s brings out his new EP which marks the 13th release on his own
East London imprint, Release Sustain.

LABEL Release Sustain
ARTIST Rico Casazza
REMIXERS Bearight,Brendon Moeller
TITLE Flutes Liebe EP
RELEASE 22nd July 2011
STORES Beatport

This EP follows the ethos of the label, where the originals are strictly dub rooted booty-tech-house. Following the originals are remixes by dub veteran New Yorker Brendon Moeller, and a new comer Bearight.

Flutes Liebe marks where Rico’s career today; where in the past year, he’d debuted with his live performance and have been a part of his set all along.It’s a track that goes emerges from just a few simple pads into this mysterious track that gets bombed with weapons of mass dubstruction.

The Groove is heavy on the bass and the empty space is filled with a glow of not-so-in-ur-face vocals which whispers across the track. This track and style is very ‘Rico Casazza’.

Dub veteran Brendon Moeller reshapes this track in a completely inverted way; taking his elements of choice and forming his own groove in where you can hear the New York touch through his nut-grabbing analog bass line. This reshape is leaning towards house rather than techno or even tech house, with the use of rhodes chords which stables the track and work really well with the baseline.

The second original of the EP ‘Look for me’ by Rico Casazza is a more straight forward track in which the beat kicks, the drums roll, and the vocals form a certain groove. But at one point, the track gets busy with digital gremlin-like micro-laughs come in which add to the curiosity of how and why Rico chooses his sounds to make this kind of groove. The track slowly develops where a cute and distant melody sample makes its way in to lighten up the track. In one way, it’s quite the usual club banger, but on the other hand the originality comes within the millions of micro grooves rico creates to fill in the space given.

Bearight takes the original of ‘Look for me’ and slow cooks it in a pot of warm baselines, lighter live drumming, cosmic fillers, and are topped with a whispering tales companioned by the filter-phased sax. It’s a tad bit slower compared to the original, but the intricate drumming keeps you on your tiptoes and your head nodding with warm hearted feelings.
