track i.d.

Ok, so this is almost certainly a futile question, but here goes. I'm looking to I.D. a deep house track I've been hearing periodically for the last 18 months or so. It sounds a lot like Cassius covering Luomo, if that makes any sense: jubilant, diva-driven, over the top, unabashedly soulful.

Begins with a peppery arpeggio, kind of Detroity, before female vocals come in. At first, they seem like they're going to drag the track down, but when the chorus hits it's ecstacy (small "e") for everyone. I can't quite make out the words, but the chorus finishes up "...let love [something]... til sun shines... oh-oh..."

The vocal is self-harmonizing, two- or three-part, and kind of overdriven in that shivery Luomo way. I'm trying to map out the notes, but I think I'm off... something like 7-4-3, 7-4-3, 2-3-2-1....

I'm sure this is a lost cause but you can't google on a melody, so....

sounds like a jori hulkonnen track to me...

Can someone please help and listen to this, in case it rings a bell, please?

Very old, eighties, funky electronica/new wavey, french female voice (not clear enough to hear what she says) - ??????? (what the presenter says in the beginning isn't relevant, it's the name of the radio show and someone who won a contest the week before)

StanM, Monday, 16 June 2008 14:59 (twelve years ago) link

I think the French lady says "???, 5 minutes" repeating each number once and counting up to "13 minutes" (compression or tape deterioration has made the sibilants come out as fff) but I've had no luck googling that and can't figure out the ???. Sounds like "le beur" but that is pretty unlikely, heh.

So, sorry, can't help, but I'd like to know the answer too now. I love the YMOesque synth chords that wash in every so often, and those seem totally familiar, but, nope...

(...now I feel bad for typing that because I have no idea how offensive the word is but I'm guessing it doesn't need to be thrown around by a pasty white rosbif. Apologies. It does sound a bit like it phonetically to me though. Anyhow, sorry, no track ID. Anyone else?)

Oh dear.

Uh, I see it's been IDed. Came here to find the link after something else made me think "hey, that sounds a bit like...", and I was way off, but the youtube uploader has found it now and it was Louis Chedid - Holdup (instrumental version). There's a longer and slightly less instrumental version here.

Just in case Stan didn't know or anyone else was interested.

(Oh! "Neuf heures, treize minutes"... and "9h13 paroles" googles you there in one. Sigh)

thought I recognised it, but then it started and it wasn't Nightclubbing by Iggy Pop :-(

the mp3 that easton ellis page puts in your temporary internet files folder is called bee.mp3 , but that's just short for Brett Easton Ellis, and no ID3 info either

He's got a new movie coming out soon (The Informers) - I somehow think this could be on the soundtrack, haven't found who's on it yet (just a guess though)

StanM, Friday, 29 August 2008 20:38 (eleven years ago) link

also very John Carpenter soundtrack-ish (Assault on Precinct 13, e.g.)

that's been on the website forever tho(?)

The informers is maybe my favourite of his books

Convenient thread bump!

Anyone know the last tracks (the last 2 main one's I guess) on "Detroit is Jacking! The Techno! Megamix" on the New Dance Sound of Detroit comp.

There's audio here. I'm guessing the high pitched string line and the vocals are from different tracks.

mehlt, Friday, 29 August 2008 23:28 (eleven years ago) link

i can't listen to your clip just now but from memory i think it ends with 'forever and a day' by blake baxter.

stirmonster, Saturday, 30 August 2008 18:06 (eleven years ago) link

Thank you StanM for the valuable work you put into solving my predicament.

I know, right?, Saturday, 30 August 2008 18:17 (eleven years ago) link

Xpost, yeah, that's one of the tracks there, but it seems like it's only one of many layers. Thanks a bunch anyways. I can't really describe it, but the part with the strings is the main part I was looking for.

While we're all here, anyone have any idea what's playing at 3:25

(uptempo and hooky hip hop beat, "fresh for 98" sample/vox repeated. And how 'bout that line at 3rd and Army at 2:12, anyways!)

Help!

I'm looking for the source of the female vocal samples used in Fierce Ruling Diva's "Rubb It In" ("you'll get the shock of your life") and Armando's "100% of Dissin You" ("i'm gonna diss you right now").

Anyone know?

one time, Tuesday, 6 October 2009 02:51 (ten years ago) link

the armando sample is the fab-u-lous Loleatta Holloway. can't remember the exact source, but it is her...wish ilxor elan still came on here, he has the full fuckin thing-- he used to play it over a mysterious omar-s track at parties.

This isn't really "track id" but I'm looking for a particular English version of Águas de Março. It's a woman singing, it's not a duet, there's no male part. I think it's all in English, but it might be a mix of English and Portuguese. The first few verses are definitely English.

It seemed "classic" or "definitive" to me when I heard it, like maybe it was actually Elis Regina singing it, but I can't find any Elis Regina versions that are in English and aren't duets. I'd guess it's from the 70s or 80s, I'd be surprised if it was from the 90s, and it's definitely not from after 2000.

It's not the Gal Costa version with Jobim.

Ok, can someone help me with this. It's what I was listening to at the turn of the century.

At about 0:50 , trying to id this funk/disco sample has been driving me nuts for about 15 years.

I heard the original once while out, and think It could possibly be by a female vocalist on Philadelphia International records, or maybe not.

Please!

inventionsforjohn, Sunday, 12 May 2013 22:26 (seven years ago) link

is it this?

no, it's not.

i lost my shoes on acid (jed_), Sunday, 12 May 2013 22:38 (seven years ago) link

Haha, thanks. It does sound very Philadelphia International though, it was only a drunk vague recollection of asking the dj and seeing a record spinning on the decks with the Philadelphia label on it.

inventionsforjohn, Sunday, 12 May 2013 22:51 (seven years ago) link

that was a result of me following a rabbit hole on google that said the sample was also used on "gym tonic" so i was searching for samples used on that and not really listening properly.

i lost my shoes on acid (jed_), Sunday, 12 May 2013 23:03 (seven years ago) link

I've been down that same rabbit hole. It was another deadly Avenger track.

inventionsforjohn, Sunday, 12 May 2013 23:12 (seven years ago) link

ah! i got excited thinking i'd solved your 15yo-old quandry without actually listening to the track :)

i lost my shoes on acid (jed_), Sunday, 12 May 2013 23:26 (seven years ago) link

I try not to revisit that period of music if I can help it, but I need to find the original track. Which will inevitably be a bit of a let down.

inventionsforjohn, Sunday, 12 May 2013 23:40 (seven years ago) link

i'm on it. i've asked a pal on facebook and if it is on philly international he'll know what it is. i'll keep you posted.

AFAIK the actual drum break in the intro to "Rapper's Delight" was not borrowed from anywhere else, so it seems Keith LeBlanc came up with hit himself. The bassline underneath the intro comes from this though:

the track I’m looking for is early 80s punky disco, from New York I think. The instrumentation is just like bass, drums, guitar, maybe synth. It doesn’t really “rock” but the vocals are this bratty fake macho spoken word thing, voice kinda sounds like milo aukerman. it sounds extremely DFA-ish, like James Murphy must know this song.
