love Maw's mix of Desire, awesome. Heavily influenced by this.....
and what a tune too
just the kind of lyrics sadly missing from pop music today
Yeah a mate of mine turned me onto that Intruders track around the time of when Desire was released. It's an amazing tune, one of my favourite Disco/Soul records.
Don Cornelius introduces them in that clip as being from Philly - Im not that knowledgable on this, I know what people call the Philly Sound is an earlier, string-laden soul thing, but I think in the mid 70s they had this kind of groovey, funky disco sound, some what of their own
Yeah def big Philly sound, MFSB were one of the leaders of this sound, they did "Love is the Message" which is credited as one of the most important Disco Records. I have collected some Philly records, mainly the mid 70's Disco stuff which as you say was very string laden, kind of orchestral and live, really big productions, very well produced.
Ironically one of my favourite songs from that Philly era is a Soul song...it's Archie Bell and the Drells, amazing song and the drums are just killer
tune! i know that one as norman jay plays that and that whole philly thing in general - i think Good Times is where i developed a taste for it in fact
*this looks good http://www.discogs.com/Various-Norman-Jay-Presents-Philadelphia-The-Underground-Anthems-Of-Philadelphia-Soul-1973-1981/release/23313Norman Jay Presents Philadelphia - The Underground Anthems Of Philadelphia Soul 1973 - 1981
anyone know the philly number Norman would always start his show with? stethoscope? stringed up uptempo instrumental with the words Dance! Dance! chucked in as a chorus
Damn I miss Giant 45 on a Sunday evening
cant believe Norman cant get a show somewhere else...
* a few 2003 sets here https://soundcloud.com/normanjaymbe/sets
I think if he'd been treated a bit better by the Beeb, he'd have eventually settled for a 1xtra or 6Music show tbh. I'm sure Gordon Mac tried to tempt him a few times to Colourful (and probably Mi-Soul too), but he didn't want to be restricted to an internet only station iirc.
There must be an FM station that would snap him - the mans a radio leg-end. Magic FM?
Agree with you guys on it being a shame Norman Jay not having a show, was a regular listener too.
Slightly off topic, but I regularly see Norman in Brixton, saw him in Currys the other year and also walking down Brixton Road a couple of months back!
thanks so much for this - been playing it all day
...and as for soul train dancing
looking at the youtube comments on Desire it looks like it was a big hit in Italy!
this is a nice read written and picked by MAW:
Top 20 Masters At Work tracks: Put together by Louie Vega and Kenny Dope
Nice one, yeah the Intruders song is such a classic, I can listen to that groove forever!
That's a great read and I confess to having most of those MAW records, I am a MAW "nut". Collect as much of there stuff as possible on Vinyl, especially all those classics from the 80's and 90's.
Huge night in Plan B this weekend
I'm already at a party round my way, though might head down there later on.
Sure. Seven Davis Jr
Kerri Chandler in BCN Saturday, anyone fancy it?
this is lovely - Git - Higher (Yoruba mix) <Osunalde
great vocal and lyrics
Yes sorry, but international jet set is quite soulful house.
Kerri and Maceo Plex at different clubs on the same night. Puta madre etc
That is a terrific track.
heard a great tune on the radio today...
....first time the chorus came round my ears pricked up and wondered what was this - unusual melody and falsetto and vibrato - does it work?
....second time the chorus came round i thought yeah, this is great
...into the next section the square lead line came in and i was grooving out
...by the third chorus i was goosepimpling out!
managed to get an ID on it....
Steal Vybe Presents Jon Pierce - Be Free (Louie Vega Dance Ritual Mix)
great lyrics, great musicianship, great groove - perfect house track
not surprisingly Louis Vega had a hand but the little clip of the original non-LV mix doesnt sound so different
Hadnt heard of Steal Vybe before - checking their discography and if you like the track above there seems to be plenty more where that came from...heres a random one
Spoiler: w ROland Clark
Steal Vybe feat Rich Medina- Spiritual Life
Oh crikey, crikey...what a track.
lovely tune fonz - though through life experiences ive become more cynical to the concept of 'forever' as the be all and end all which slightly colours it for me. still a sweet track though
Yeah it should be called `until you put on weight`
I was mocked by my mates back when Jungle was getting big, 'cos I wasn't into a lot of it and much preferred going to see Graeme Park rather than Micky Finn DJ. Think these 2 tracks are my favourites from that period, still sounding good today, US House/Garage always had far superior production values compared to a lot of the British tunes of that time as well, so they always sounded nice if the system they were being played on was up to it.
Amazing DJ Spinna mix on Josey Rebelles show on Rinse this morning - will post a link when it goes up - Spinna playing some wonderful downbeat soulful house tunes - really excellent selection
Spinna promoting his soulful house remix comp out on BBE - The Sound Beyond Stars - The Essential Remixes
http://bbemusic.com/releases/BBE262CDG_MP3/DJ Spinna - DJ Spinna presents The Sound Beyond Stars - The Essential Remixes
i think he was playing some tunes off that in the mix, which makes me think theres going to be lots of gems in there
I think I somewhat get it now. Still not a style I'd go out and dance to, i like to hear the cities, electronic sounds and decay in my dance music, like it to reflect my experiences.
Also i feel with this kind of music dancing to it alone kind of defeats the point, it's not abstract and introspective, feels like you need to be with a significant other (or someone you've met) on the dancefloor, not a room full of serious angry men and women, and then go home and fuck rather than get back home from a techno gig and read Deleuze whilst drinking beer.
I guess I'll stick to my raw and frayed around the edges chicago and detroit house. Maybe when I'm a romantic buffoon I'll go out and dance to the NYE sound
It's definitely nice music to listen to at home though!
