  • Remixes/bootlegs...

    Specifically that is, not in general. There's two tracks I've wanted to identify for years (from my Nottingham days) that I don't think I've asked about on here before.

    One was a remix of House Of Pain's 'Jump Around' that ditched the vocals and replaced the choruses with this mad toasting, over some sort of digi backing. It sounded like either a JA version or a AV8 style thing and the local radio used to cane it all the time.

    The other was the some Eric B And Rakim song (off the first LP I think - I wish I could be more specific) over Wacko Jacko's 'Billie Jean'.

    I know the descriptions are a little lacking but can anybody enlighten me on these two?
    You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

    I dont know either mate

    I stuck billie jean eric b into google and got this page.

    http://www.funkymjsite.co.uk/audiomichaelf.html

    it lists two billie jean boots.

    I do know that the pete rock remix of jump around is the bizniz.

    Also the AV8 remix of faith evans 'love like this before' is a classic. Deadly avenger used to cane it rotten - it drops into black sheeps 'the choice is yours' half way...send the laydeez mad on the dancefloor

      <span =''>Cheers Sermad - now why didn't I think of that? And why can't I click on any of those tracks?!? Those two look like they might answer that one...

      But the 'Jump Around' track is a killer - you get the predictable reaction from the intro (students get up/us snobs sit down and turn our noses up) and then when realisation dawns that H.O.P. aren't going to show up this wicked ragga voacal kicks in. Think Supercat's 'Ghetto Red Hot' remix and you're close.

        The Billie Jean / Eric B thing originally came out as a boot by those cheeky Kingsize boys on their white lable subsidiary 'Cluedo' - some time around '94-'95.

        'Billie Jean got soul' - shove that into Google and you should see some reward.

            If you like that Supercat mix you should check out, Kenny Dope's - Supa mix, there are lots of versions, but the best one has to be Louie Rankin's - Typewriter over BDK - Aint No Half Steppin, (there is a nice Atlantic reissue out at the mo).

            Im also feeling the Bozo Meko reissue (been looking for that for ages) its got a green label rather than the original cream, but it still rocks ..

            turntablelab.com has audio of both (i think).
            working together for better bass and treble

              Do you mean the Grandmaster Flash/Fusion Mix Bozo Meko? I've definitely got an original but it's a green label. Is this a second pressing or something?
              He also contributed songs for the Jim Henson movie vehicle 'Muppets From Space'.

                ... and 'Ragga Remixes (Vol.1)' on Fashion from 1994 featuring General Levy, Nico Junior, Top Cat and Cutty Ranks songs over the top of 'Insane In The Brain' is well worth picking up if you some across a copy as is the Supercat version of &lt;cough&gt; 'Jump' by Kriss Kross (and would probably work very well with the House of Pain thing)

                  Thanks all! I'll email you later Lee...

                  And yep, the Kenny Dope mix is exactly the sort of thing I'm talking about. I like that Supercat remix of Jump (b-side of the second single?) although I wish the mix without the two young, sartorially challenged ones was better...

                    I remember hearing supa cat on the Jon Carter (when he played decent records!) live at the social mix and jus t fell in love. WOTTATUNE!

                    If anyone sees records on DopeWax (kenny dopes hip hop label) then jump on them! They are hella rare in the uk and most are brilliant - loads of funky hip hop cut up and big drums.

                    One record which we used to cane at the club night was - DJ Stealth - &quot;Live from NYC&quot;. Ragga hip hop, take me to the mardi gras, loads of shouting - this destroys a dancefloor! Its got the bombjack 'lesson 7' on there too.

                      I dont think this Bozo Meko is a grandmaster flash/fusion thing.  Lab/everyone i have spoken to says its 45 King re-edits (its got the bridge is over mixes on one side).

                      The flip however has really cool versions of Brazillian Rhyme and Fence walk, along with a track called spread love (nothing to do with that very rare soul lp i think), but it does have big drums.

                      There is another good boot called Hook Me Up (wheres the party) on platinum party breaks, this chops at least 30 hip-hop tunes over changing beats kinda Rectangle style, La De Dar Di etc etc.

                      There is a French Dj who specalises in this kind of Ragga hip-hop crossover stuff, Dj Xela, i think a lot of his tapes/cds are pretty shit, but the odd track really does pump, as yet i havent had much luck in finding 12's of the edits (there is a very good No Diggerty one about somewhere!)
