California Style

Reggae star Eddy Grant released 'California Style' in 1981 on Ice, an upbeat disco number with a corny Caribbean hook. Hidden in the last three minutes of the 12" version however is this monster break, with killer percussion and bass. This edit gets straight to the point, keeping just the break and discarding the rest of the tune.

Alpha Bits

After a very productive digging session in Edinburgh a couple weekends ago, Alpha Neil is back with two brand new killer edits. Cooltempo Unlimited Orchestra's 'K-Jee' is first to go under the knife, big early house grooves from 1990 with plenty of brass and a driving bouncey bassline. Second to receive the Alpha Neil treatment is obscure '78 Italo track 'Fly with the Wind' from the Peter Jacques Band, slowed, looped and dubbed into a hypnotic cosmic bomb. Quality work as usual from Mr Neil!

Special Treatment

I started this edit a couple months ago and never quite got round to finishing it until recently. Boogie-funk with an electro flavour at 105 bpm. From the 1983 album 'Joey' on the Matra/Unidisc label.

Computer Boogie

Je Suis C from London boogie/hip hop editeurs extraordinaire Ulysses 82 sent me their latest mix they did for the Red Rackem podcast, 'Snowcones & AC'. Party smashing boogie-funk with the trademark U82 hip-hop edge, with plenty of exclusive edits and bits. They're playing in London tomorrow at Computer Boogie with Black Shag from BeatElectric among others at The Star, Bethnal Green. Not to be missed!

'Tanzmusik' from Kraftwerk's 1973 album 'Ralf & Florian'. Unlike the colder, detached synth-driven sound made famous in their later work, 'Tanzmusik' features processed acoustic elements layered around an drum machine, retaining the rhythmic electronic edge but set against a warmer melodic context. Awe-inspiring.
