Yazz And The Plastic Population ‎– The Only Way Is Up (The Bam Bam Remixes) Plus the Regular UK release (2 x12″)

Mike B has spoilt us by including a FLAC recording as well as an MP3 on some of his latest rips, I’ll be here all night if I started doing that (Sorry!)

A massive number 1 hit in 1988 this gets the Bam Bam treatment from American producer/artist Chris Westbrook. Cutting everything back and providing a harder, acid house vibe.

Sinéad O’Connor With M.C.Lyte ‎– I Want Your (Hands On Me) (US Promo 12″)

Ahead of its time (this was released in 1988!!) by mixing Rock, Hip-Hop and Dance. Female rapper collaborates with O’Connor on this track. It was produced by Audio Two (brothers Kirk Robinson and Nat Robinson) with Irish producer and engineer Kevin Moloney for the soundtrack of Nightmare On Elm Street 4. It has an electro groove and smacks bottom for something this old!

Calvin Caines and Cliff St.-Cyr funk up the Dance Mix, plenty of beats here. Toughening it up from the album version, “The Lion & The Cobra.”

“Just Call Me Joe” was taken from a Janice Long Radio session, rocky guitar chords, Sinead does grunge, very interesting.

Midnight Star (Featuring Ecstacy Of Whodini) ‎– Don’t Rock The Boat (US 12″)

Some gentle, funky beats from Midnight Star (featuring a rap by Ecstasy from Whodini) and released in 1988. Four DJ friendly mixes all done by the well-established band, originally from Kentucky. The band was minus the Calloway brothers (who were in the original line-up)

Safe and cheerful with a great bassline. A bit of a soul/funk 80’s Floor-filler.

Fine Young Cannibals ‎– Ever Fallen In Love? (Club Senseless) (12″)

My Gosh the FYC’s are very popular! I’ve also got this but my copy is knackered so thanks for Mike B for sharing his mighty fine rip.

From 1987 !!!! (yes, that long ago) this was remixed by Arthur Baker who extends and alters the main mix to over 9 minutes. A cover of the Buzzcocks song. The other mix is over 11 mins and quite similar, being more of a dub version.

Warning there is a lot of s-s-stuttering in the mix that immediately ages it.

B-side is a bit of a “guess what he is singing” track, soulful and Motown influenced with backing vocals from Debbie Charles, from the band “Mint Juleps”.

Patrick Cowley / Yaz ‎– Remix By Patrick Cowley / Remix By Situation Yaz (Bootleg 12″)

patick-cowley_final

From 1982 and a couple of very early mega-mixes; one featuring the work of Patrick Cowley, the father of Hi NRG and Disco, Patrick Cowley. The other using “Situation” as a starting point.

The first was a tribute megamix by Tom Moulton (?) and features tracks by Sylvester, Megatron Man amongst others over 15 mins.

Yazoo starts with a the sound of a cockerel crowing !! A very nice, rare mix of their classic dance classic. Using the “boomerang” technique off it uses the Yazoo track as the basis and carries on for a 12 minutes, mixing in half a dozen disco/funk tunes, some successfully other not.

Scritti Politti ‎– Hypnotize + Turntable Mix & Regular UK 12″(Both 12″)

Wind back to 1984 and the trio of David Gamson, Fred Maher and Green Gartside were pioneering not only the use of the samplers but the art of pure synthpop. Nothing sounded anything near at the time. Credit must also given to Gary Langan and Engineer Ray Bardani. With a little extra guitar from Nick Moroch.

This includes the longer version and a short version of the single and a special megamix (featuring Hypnotize/Wood Beez/Absolute)with some extra overdubs by Mastermind Wizard Of The Turntable, Herbie Laidley, sound bites of Aretha Franklin for Woodbeez no lees.
