Dakeyne keeps all the full vocal elements of the great original and tacks you on a great remixing treat elongating all the bits you want more off and still making it sound like it was meant to be. A sign of a great remix no less!
2. Chris Rea 'On The Beach' Remixed By Rod Layman/Claire Pearce
Who ever said Chris Rea wasn't cool. This remix made everyone realize that no one was safe from a good producer and that the 'art of remixing' was truly a very specialist thing in the days when this was created. Today it's a little easier but still a great art! This mix stands up and stands out even now!
3. Greed 'Pump Up The Volume' Producer is Greed
Well where do we start with this one! DMC wanted originally to remix M/A/R/R/S but after many months (even more than a year) we still hadn't cleared it for remix. So we cleared all the samples that the original used and Mike Gray and Jon Pearn under their 'Greed' guise re-made this club anthem and made it their own! This also became in a changed form a hit release on Stress Records in 1995. Samples included Eric B & Rakim 'I Know You Got Soul', and Public Enemy 'You Gonna Get Yours' plus the vocal of one Ricardo Da Force. Still great now and features all the elements of an era in 90's dance including a Lil Louis slowdown/breakdown into funk that still is oh-so-funky!
4. Womack And Womack 'Teardrops' Remixed By Luvdup
So much deceptively funky bass that it gives this a really full and fat bottom end to go with one of the greatest easy vocals a dancefloor has ever laid its table for! The anthemic incessant piano carries throughout and the drum fills just add to one of the biggest and best of classic DMC remixes ever!
5. Tom Jones 'It's Not Unusual' Remixed By Alfie Notes
OK! So who was Alfie Notes then? Well I'll tell you after all these years.....it was none other than.......Mr. Brian Butler!
Tom never sounded better and this half time reggae tinged floorfiller never sounded better either. This is still frighteningly great, and fun, and serious at the same time! Play and smile because everyone else will!!!
6. Sports Theme 'Grandstand' (Keith Mansfield) Remixed By ??
Ooooooh! Another one we can finally reveal who it was maybe. This started off as a freaky idea in studio one on the ground floor at DMC HQ. Two fanatical football fans and producers duo wanted to do a really serious "job" on one of the nations most featured, played and recognized TV Themes ever! (I seem to recall that it was either around a World Cup or European Championship too). They were non-other than Steve Anderson and Dave Seaman AKA Brothers In Rhythm! Now you know! The biggest build-up and club reflecting sound of the day.
7. Tinman '18 Strings' Remixed By Reefa
Chad Jackson under his Reefa guise took Dakeyne's Tinman project to a different level. Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' never sounded so good. Added rap and the funkiest of additional production from Chad and the introduction of a whole bunch of effective scratching to boot!
8. C&C Music Factory 'Do You Wanna Get Funky' Remixed By Junior Vasquez
Back in the day when this era of DMC was very remix and remixer lead. This the first of three of the biggest and greatest DMC remixes with the American Connection. Junior Vasquez builds massively over 9 minutes plus of ever intensifying bouncy US style grooves with the raunchiest of diva-style vocals.
9. Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes 'Don't Leave Me This Way' Remixed By Johnny Vicious
One of America's harder producer takes 'Don't Leave Me This Way' into different territory. Tough beats, more sample-based production than use of the full vocal therefore quite dubby. Fierce percussion carries the groove along for the more discerning clubbier DJ. Again very long and into the 10 minute barrier. A true remix aimed at the big room boys and girls who use the big sound system to exemplify the groove. At 8 minutes plus it gets deep and dirty with the addition of an incessant industrial keyboard loop to the mix out.
10. DJ Dexter 'In My House' Remixed By David Morales
Our third US Legend in his own lifetime features David Morales at the controls. This was never a hit over here but such was the nature of the membership at the time wanted a whole bunch of US house and this fitted the bill perfectly!
11. Hustlers Convention 'Disco Soundclash Vol. 1
Producer is Hustlers Convention.
Needs a bit of filling in this one. The Mike Gray and Jon Pearn guise of Hustlers Convention was renowned for using small very recognizable samples from disco tracks (and mor), and creating something out of nothing. Heatwves 'Boogie Nights' get the works and a few other well chosen samples (Michael Jackson 'Rock With You' and a touch of S'Express or its original amongst). Now we would call it a bootleg but we're polite when it's legal and "soundclash" sums it up nicely!
