Where do I even start with this one? This edit is constructed from the inside track on the b-side of a super obscure house record from 1992, released on UK imprint Discolated Hip Recordings (that's DISCOlated, not Dislocated, mind you). In my opinion this tune was light years ahead of it's time but was so bizarre in it's original incarnation that I'm quite sure it was overlooked by all but the most adventuresome/spaced out djs. The original tempo is impossibly slow but the jazzy vibes of this track are oh so right. Closer inspection reveals that the track was produced by Charlie Webster....the very young house music genius-in-the-making, Charles Webster of Sheffield, who would go on to make his mark producing records for DiY and eventually his own Love From San Francisco imprint among many others.
This tune was so good yet so unplayable, I had to tweak it. I can't take credit for any of the musical genius that lies inside these grooves. All I did was nudge the tempo up to a more workable 98 bpm, punched up the low end including overdubbed 808 kick drums, edited it ever so slightly to make it work how i wanted it to and added just a touch of delay here and there.
I hope you appreciate the magic of this tune!
Special thanks to my man, Nicole in Bristol, for gifting me with this wax from his personal archives. Much love, buh-bay!
