Human Resource - Dominator

Human Resource consisted of Guido Pernet, Johan Van Beek, Jasper Drexhage, Robert Mahu & Larenzo Nash (Yeah, me neither), & provide the tune that I need to wake me up, am working nights at the momnet & feel like i'm neither here nor there! Can't remember any other tune they did but they still seem to be on the go from this tune (website address is!) Released in 1991 it is said by many that "Dominator" was the first record to use the "Hoover Sound"...although others claim Human Resource ripped off Joey Beltram...whatever the truth may be, what this track did do was it established the musical genre of "hardcore". Don't worry folks, there won't be any more "hardcore" tunes from this moment on!

Jon Carter - Acid House Reborn!

'The best job I ever had' is how Jon Carter sums up his career to date. Born 30 years ago on the outskirts of London, Jon's rise to prominence was triggered, like so many of his generation, by the Acid House revolution of 88-89 when the warehouse parties that happened nationwide suddenly made music so much more accessible than ever before.
Excellent mix which I remember listening to whilst lying on the beach in Menorca, also remember seeing Jon at Creamfields a few years back with his wife at the time Sara Cox dancing around like a loon behind him! Free with the October 2003 issue of Mixmag.

Silver Bullet - 20 Seconds To Comply

Silver Bullet first hit the UK hip hop scene as part of Triple Element, who released a tune called 'What's Dat Sound' on Tam Tam records in 1988. After this, came, his debut as a solo artist 'Bring Forth The Guillotine' also on Tam Tam records, which was so successful that it prompted two other official remixes, one by Ben Chapman and the other by Norman Cook. '

After a two year gap and label switch from Tam Tam to Parlophone, Bullet released 'Undercover Anarchist' before releasing his debut and long awaited album 'Bring Down The Walls - No Limit Squad Returns' which was originally going to be called 'Hung, Drawn and Quartered'.

As well as featuring on many other artists records like Jonny L, Outcast (not THE Outkast), Monkey Mafia, Ben Chapman, to name a few, Silver Bullet relaunched himself as a solo artist onto the hip hop scene in 1998 as Silvah Bullet. Apparently, an album was recorded on Arthrob, but was never released.

Stuck in on a Saturday night (only cos I'm saving myself for tomorrow night!), what song is gonna cheer me up, Please put down your weapon, you have 20 Seconds To Comply!

Put this up for sale on ebay but nobody bought it, am glad in a way because I can't remember hearing this mix before, anyone who knows the album Never, Never, Land will recognise the riff from "An Eye For An Eye". The Bristol, England-based drum'n'bass project Breakbeat Era was spearheaded by acclaimed producer Roni Size in tandem with DJ Die (also Size's collaborator in Reprazent) and singer Leonie Laws.

When my Grandma died I recieved a load of old 7"s & a Royal Doulton Dish with a picture of a butterfly on it that I bought for her returning from a trip to Austria with school skiing. The first records I decided to put on my ipod was a selection of these 7", nice to think of my Grandma dancing away to these tunes (probably just tapping her foot though!)
Can't find much out about the Bob Keene Orchestra, Barry White appears to have written the original Felice Taylor song "I Feel Love Coming On", this track being the b-side instrumental!

Dillinger - Wood Woodpecker

Can't remember where I found this 12" plastered with "Limited Edition" over it, an old friend used to call me Woody for some reason & I associated this song with said nickname.

Dillinger, born Lester Bullocks on January 25, 1953, is a prominent reggae artist. Dillinger was part of the second wave of DJ Toasters who sprung up around Jamaica during the mid 1970s. Inspired by Big Youth, U Roy, and Dennis Alcapone, Dillinger was known for his quick wit and humourous lyrics.

As a youth growing up in Kingston, Jamaica, Dillinger would hang around Dennis Alcapone's El Paso Setup. This exposure would eventually lead to a full time gig at Jackie's sound system. Just as Alcapone took his performing name from a famous American gangster, Dillinger took his own name from John Dillinger.

I lived with a girl who had a load of records but no record player, don't ask me why! When going through my 7" singles I came across this in terrible condition, like its got a load of paint on it so I cleaned it up & tried to take all the surface noise out with Cool Edit - think have done an ok job but if anyone else has got any tips please let me know (I did it all automatic & about 3 times!)

Gary Moscheles - Gary's House

Gary Moschelles "Shaped To Make Your Life Easier", an incarnation of Mike Paradinas (a.k.a µ-Ziq, Jake Slazenger, Kid Spatula, Tusken Raiders...) which will never be heard of again; "I think we have seen the last of Gary Moscheles..."
Why? This is one of the funkiest electronic albums relased (but so is the Jake Slazenger stuff which I feel is in a similar style). This track appeared on a bonus 7" which came with the album, also appearing as the last track on the CD. However am sure that the labels are mixed up on my 7", stating that this track is "Gary Goes Wild" which didn't appear on the CD. Am I right? Will post the other track soon (i.e. when this one isn't available anymore to download!)

Indian Vibes - Mathar (Richard Fearless Remix)

Cool tune from back in 1998, a cover version no less! "Mathar" became (and remains) a huge club hit, and was recorded by Paul Weller (on Electric Sitar) under the guise of Indian Vibes for a now insanely rare French single on Yellow Productions (YP001M) in 1994. The Weller single was reissued in the UK on Virgin as a 12", and Pike’s original was released as a 12" (complete with techno remixes, no less) on Outcaste (Out9x). Clearly, this song’s rediscovery in the late 1980’s, and it’s subsequent fervor among rare groove and funk jazz fans has been instrumental in revitalizing Pike’s career. Still, the majority of the aforementioned reissues aren’t readily available to the masses.

Don't know if I ever listened to the Richard Fearless mix much, couldn't stop listening to the original! But I did check it out when going through my collection, nice dubby electronic mix!

Crustation - Purple (La Femme D'Argent Mix)

Crustation is a Trip hop band, formed by Ian Dark, Stig Manley and Mark Taylerthe, three producers from Bristol. In the 80s they played in bands with Adrian Utley of Portishead. For their late Crustation songs they used the collaboration of female vocalist Bronagh Slevin. In 1994 they released two EPs under Cup of Tea Records (label of Monk & Canatella, Statik Sound System and Purple Penguin). Released their only album Bloom in 1997, under the name of Crustation with Bronagh Slevin. They do a mellow and dreamy trip hop.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bought this for the Mr. Scruff & Tribe Called Quest mixes & fell in love with this & the band Air (who remixed this), I'm sure this has a sample from one of Air's other songs, please tell me if you know!

Leo Muller - Bobby & Betty go to the Moon

The "Bobby & Betty go to the Moon" LP originally appeared on the Pye-owned label "Marble Arch" in the late 60's. This "Happy House" record (Happy House HH506) was first released in the early 70's. Side one is a strange 'kiddies go to the moon' space story for the tots, performed by incredibly bad actors. It is filled with loads of 60's/70's sexism and it even has a "spacey" version of the "Blue Danube." Side two is 'The Party After Landing at Lunar Central.' The Soul Symphony must have been the house band at the party, because we are treated to "space-tweaked" versions of 'CC Rider' and 'Papa's Got a Brand New Bag' from the 'Symphony of Soul Hits' (1970) LP, which was released on Leo Muller's own "Gold Award" label. There has been some added flute and out of synch vibes, but the strings has been turned down (though you can still hear the bleed through in the quieter moments).
Found this album for 10p in a charity shop in Rotherham, thought it looked cool & would be an ideal piece for my self-proclaimed "Crap Record Collection", except most of the records in the collection were really cool. Sampled by loads of people, especially Wagon Christ on his album "Big Soup". Published on "Happy House Records" although these are no dodgy hardcore tunes! This cover of James Brown's "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" is the gem of the whole album.

Golden Claw Musics - Diggin' the Dancing Weed 10" Single

Golden Claw Musics was the main musical project of Graham Crabb after he left the band Pop Will Eat Itself in 1995. Crabb had been making music which was leaning more towards the Ambient genre and therefore too chilled for a PWEI release for up to five years prior to the split. In 1993 he remixed Pop Will Eat Itself's 'Get the Girl, Kill the Baddies' as a B-side called 'Part Man Part Machine', prompting him to release more of his ambient material. Another remix of Pop Will Eat Itself's song 'Cape Connection' was released on the limited 2CD edition of the album 'Two Fingers My Friends'. He released the album All Blue Review with Eno engineer Marcus Dravs on Infectious Records in July 1994 to critical acclaim. It has a distinctly 'aquatic' feel to it, with gentle waves crashing and whale noises (among other things) throughout. Sadly they have not released any more material to date.

I bought this classy orange vinyl 10" from Circles Records in Rotherham, the woman in there always stank of tuna & had crazy permed hair, this is the tune on it I loved the most...
