    There was some interesting commenting by ex-members or their families on songs by the Dynamic Superiors but I'm not wading through pages of homophobia to find it again. But check out the group if you've not heard of them.

    TBF none of the comments on this are particularly nasty.

    From discogs this one

    "I already had the Funky Drummer break looped over the top of a 4x4 kick drum, I played in a Generic upright bass pattern and added a sampled guitar. Now all I needed was the filthy electronic sound. A lot of people asked what an earth did you use to create that sound, The Prodigy sampled the Homicide bleep in their huge hit ‘Out Of Space’, Nookie sampled it in the classic ‘Give a Little Love’ and more recently Kill Sonic from ‘Chase & Status’s label sampled it on the track ‘Where The River Runs Black’ but it all derives from a combination of 8 sounds merged together and transposed up on that shitty sound module. I started with the simplest of square waves, tweaking envelopes and twisting filters till I liked the sound , layered 2 more square waves and 1 more sine wave but it still wasn’t right, it was electronic but didnt have the squeak it needed. Eventually after hours or tweaking, the secret ingredient wasn’t some cool filter or pitch envelope editing, it was a trumpet, a trombone and a saxophone all pitched up about +36 and +48 semitones. The name came from a cap my Uncle gave me, he worked on some homicide cases in Philadelphia.

    To be honest I wasn’t mad into the track when I first wrote it but as was usual back then we used to play our demo’s to each other and if someone liked it we would test it out in a DJ set. We played it out and knew it should be on the album we were planning. It went on the Frequency album which we pressed ourselves and the next thing we know DJs started playing it on pirate stations and at illegal raves. Eventually it was released on ZTT, I remember a well known DJs reaction to it, ‘made for morons by morons’. Last year I was in a hotel in Glasgow and that DJ shared an elevator with us to go up to his room, floor 1, floor 2,,, should I say something,, floor 3, floor 4 , I should really say something,,, ding, he got out…. nah, let bygones be bygones, not everybody understood the music back then. Raving back then was all about like minded people that you had never met before all coming together for a fraction of a time but then having that connection for life. Things will never be the same again, and people who didnt connect with it don’t know any different…. Going out to all the people who do know the score. You will always remember those very special times. "

    From the days when people would make their own patches :thumbs:

    oi oi!

    this early 80's ( '2 step' ? ) soul stuff is underrated : top dance music in it's own right ( albeit ended up with some bad mullet / jazz funk weekender etc associations attached to it )

    Hugh Masekela - Afro Beat Blues.

    I didn't check too closely but it seems legit. Even by internet weirdo standards this would be a strange one to impersonate.

    My first exposure to the amazingly unique voice of Venus Dodson, was our duet on Atlantic's Phreek album, "Everybody Loves A Good Thing". So, when Patrick asked me for songs for her own solo album, I jumped at the chance. "Shining" (written by James Calloway, Bruce Johnson and myself), allowed us to create a song through which she could spread her wings and let folks hear what kind of 'chops' she really had. To say that I was impressed and stupefied by her work, understates the matter considerably. "Floored with socks knocked clean off" is much more accurate. Leroy Burgess.
