    Had to rip and post this: emotional live rendition by Barbara Tucker of her garage anthem Beautiful People, with Louie Vega getting creative on three decks in the background - recorded at Roots NYC earlier in the year. Vibes!!

    :eek: Just last night I was searching for a ridiculous video clip a pal posted on about this record*

    Absolute DON FunkySoulful connoisseur shit. :D:cool::cool:

    To think there exists a defectedy soulful house tune that samples Over and Over (arguably the greatest disco record ever made IMO)...You can't imagine it'd be anything other than an utter abomination....but it knocks it out of the park. Got caned for months when we used to be out all weekend (as did anything JJK/Tappert/Soulfuric), and then it was included on this compilation http://www.amazon.co.uk/Soulfuric-S...im_m_h__2?ie=UTF8&refRID=0KYWSA1982RMC78WABXT with the Lolleata Holloway/Dreamin acapella over the top, and AGAIN it just gets better and better. The remixes also have a role in life if you're dying to play it early on, but it's proper WHALLOP material :D (that whole cd was the soundtrack for all car journeys and 'back to mines' for about a 3 year period :D).

    *It's Josh Milan at Ministry last year, playing this record tho jamming on a keyboard next to it. full on goosebump stuff.

    (DJ) Lindsay Wesker is great on facebook... he just posted this;

    Back in the seventies, everyone was making disco records: Wings, The Rolling Stones, Barbra Streisand, Liza Minnelli, Barry Manilow. Everyone wanted to jump on this bandwagon.

    It was the same during the first house explosion in the nineties. Suddenly, there were dance mixes of everything: R&B, pop, rock, and even dance mixes of classic disco records, which definitely didn’t need re-mixing!
    So, we now have soulful house mixes of everything. On Saturday, I heard ‘Love X Love’, which wasn’t too bad, but I also heard ‘Superstition’, which was horrific, and Pockets’ ‘Come Go With Me’, one of the most exciting soul records ever made, which definitely doesn’t need re-mixing.

    What this soulful house beat does is create one long song. One tempo. One rhythm. No light and shade. No joy and pain. No variety. No contrast. A beat made for automatons; subservient, doped-up robots who won’t question authority. Just the way the ruling classes like it.

    Play me two soulful house tracks then play me something else. Show me new emotions. Play me new music, play me old music. Surprise me! Show me everything this beautiful thing called ‘music’ has to offer.

    George Clinton even took the piss out of it all in his track ‘Loopzilla’, but no one took any notice. Why have monotony when you can have monotonytonitone?

    Reminds me more of Trakheadz (but that also reminds me of Deep burnt sooo...)



    They both also remind me somehow of this sublime house track by Mike Grant

    hat tip to damnNAFTA for this soulful gem. Sounds like a straight up 90s classic. Apparently not even released yet :cool:

    Been feeling lots of Mr G recently, but this one seems more fitting for the thread:
