I have some tunes by Maurice Fulton that are really cool. I also like his Ladyvipp and Eddie & The Eggs releases. I have not heard any of the MU stuff yet. Can anyone recommend some of his best tunes & remixes? Thanks!!

Frank Booth (Frank Booth), Saturday, 17 January 2004 21:54 (sixteen years ago) link

Mu tracks that are great: Let's Get Sick, Chair Girl, My Name Is Tommi, Tell You Something.

Remixes: I really like House of Jealous Lovers remix.

Jedmond, Sunday, 18 January 2004 01:15 (sixteen years ago) link

Also from last year:

Do it Proper (Maurice Fulton Remix) - Chicken Lips (Re-Echoed, Re-Extended and Re-Hashed album, Kingsize)
Don't You See - Bibi with Maurice Fulton (Modal)

well... could always use more of this wonderful music... but what's up with only being able to find one interview with him (in french no less)? are my googling skills that shoddy?

firstworldman (firstworldman), Thursday, 19 May 2005 17:27 (fourteen years ago) link

I think he's just doesn't like giving interviews.

ps the new Syclops release is great - favouring "the E ticket" at the moment.

Jedmond (Jedmond), Thursday, 19 May 2005 17:54 (fourteen years ago) link

ah... i love that syclops 12... and by sentiment that seems pervasive here, i really like the heartbeat remix more than most and kind of imagine a club full of pillows where people dance wearing that linen business from p.m. dawn videos.

according to a friend he's got three tracks on the upcoming future of jazz comp, but i haven't investigated further.

i didn't want to start a thread for this. How can you base your album around Kate Bush's music including her vocal samples but not only including them...and not mention her? Is that normal/legal?

Susan Douglas (Susan Douglas), Thursday, 29 December 2005 06:02 (fourteen years ago) link

which album is that?

firstworldman (firstworldman), Thursday, 29 December 2005 06:25 (fourteen years ago) link

'Boof'. I figure there must be something I'm missing. 20 seconds in..oh this would go nice with some Kate Bush! 40 seconds in...oh wow that sounds like a Kate Bush song!...60 seconds..is he sampling her voice really low? then switch to another song and hear her "oh ohhhhhhhh oh" from 'This Woman's Work'.

Susan Douglas (Susan Douglas), Thursday, 29 December 2005 06:36 (fourteen years ago) link

With the B'more Basement Boys, he did produce Crystal Waters' "Gypsy Woman" and some fine deep house -most of which I do not have- 15 years ago. My absolute fave MF choon is this kraftwerkian electro-tech nummer with rising key stabs called "Space" that came out on Transfusion. So good I must YSI it at once :
http://s53.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=1XWG6H86WSHU22ITK2BR69OW0M

Also search : "Down In The Dungeon" and especially "Moo That Rocked The Electric Chair", both are spectacular and can do serious dancefloor damage if you know what you're doing. In a lighter vein there's also "You Changed My Life" with killer fl00t s0l0 & disco cuts, speaking of which, Susan's prolly right about the heavy-handed sampling on some tracks - then again Moodymann has built a career out of Chic samples and nobody told the duder to stop.

Basically I recommend anything released for Transfusion and the "Up" 12'' on Discfunction (he lives in Britain since a while). The downtempo side of his production used to be dark and rich, like sitting in a life-infested jungle at sundown. I guess the Syclops releases indicate it's getting ruffer in that dept. It's fine retro-sounding future-shaped music anyway.

Remix search : I-Cube "Vacuum Jackers", Walter Jones "All God's Children" (Carl Craig-style genius), Minimal Compact "Happy Babouge"... Fulton = live(-sounding) drum breaks, warped funk bass, more cowbell. Sometimes formulaic but it ends up being enjoyable most of the time, hello again Mr. Kenny Dixon Jr.

blunt (blunt), Monday, 2 January 2006 15:31 (fourteen years ago) link

let's turn this into a YSI thread then, as moo rocks but i know little of his non-wifey joints

Beta (abeta), Monday, 2 January 2006 15:50 (fourteen years ago) link

Is that a challenge, Beta? I think the Eddie and The Eggs LP is really good. My Gigolo 12" is great too. His Walter Jones remix is my favorite of his remixes. It sounds....sideways, in a good way. It was my favorite remix for so long, i think it is from 2001,but it is hard to play out cause it is so long and weird, it would probably kill a dance floor.
Here is the new aforementioned Syclops 12" he produced on Tirk + Walter Jones remix.

SYCLOPS "The Fly":

Absolutely love Maurice's mix of Ost & Kjex's "Have You Seen the Moon in Dallas?" - actually from 2004 but it's on the great Permanent Vacation mix. It achieves the unlikely feat of almost overshadowing his remix of I:Cube's "Vacuum Jackers". So so pretty.

Telephonething (Telephonething), Thursday, 16 November 2006 00:50 (thirteen years ago) link

additional tah for the YSI.

+ Speaking about "Permanant Vacation" mix (which is great, but then I love anything in which the first adjective involved in describing it is "pretty" - see love for any Ewan Pearson set as well), Vahid, you have to check out Permanant Vaction's Kathy Diamond 12" "All Woman" (produced by Fulton) which is the first single of her coming album "Miss Diamond To You" (which hopefully includes "Sunshine" and other Fulton productions).

Jedmond (Jedmond), Thursday, 16 November 2006 16:00 (thirteen years ago) link

Yeah I definitely get a Ewan Pearson vibe off of Permanent Vacation (the first half of his Resident Advisor set is like a proggier version of the same). The Joakim remix also is absolutely stunning.

Tim Finney (Tim Finney), Friday, 17 November 2006 01:57 (thirteen years ago) link

the alice smith remix is not as craaaaazy as we've come to expect but is still great.

only halfway thru but the resident advisor mix is inspired and interesting and kinda scary.

Reasonably late response, but there are some quotes from Fulton regarding Ladyvipb here http://www.allbusiness.com/retail-trade/miscellaneous-retail-retail-stores-not/4645368-1.html On the other hand I swear I read him saying somewhere that Ladyvipb stood for Lady V.I.P. Bitch aka ex-girlfriend.

been listening to the stress record a bit lately, it is fantastic. i need to hunt down all the singles from it - chicken lips did a pretty mental dub of 'my gigolo'!

still yet to see syclops record in the shops unfortunately.

haitch, Tuesday, 15 July 2008 02:38 (eleven years ago) link

would really like to hear that chicken lips version. i should listen to them more.

got syclops today. it's amazing. like he figured out how to accentuate every good part of all his old albums while simultaneously ditching the goofy aspects (flute solos, aimless ambient interludes, creeping un-tunefulness) that held albums like "boof: life is water for gerbadaisies when they're dancing" back.

really, really hard to believe that it's a band, though.

moonship journey to baja, Wednesday, 16 July 2008 06:43 (eleven years ago) link

he was pretty insistent upon it, even in person

jaime, Wednesday, 16 July 2008 06:48 (eleven years ago) link

i think syclops is not very good. it's like an untuneful IDM album. reminds me of Squarepusher's "Music is Rotted One Note". lots of cool sound effects with no substance. no songs. no melodies. the only 2 songs that are any good are The Fly (when those keys come in near the end is really nice) and Where's Jason K.

then again, i'm not a fulton fanboy. didn't really like the Mu album and thought the Kathy Diamond album was just ok. never heard anything else.

jaxon, Wednesday, 16 July 2008 06:57 (eleven years ago) link

if you think this is untuneful you should hear older fulton songs. it gets annoying at times. incredible production, amazing beats, but the synth squiggles are just all over the place.

maybe it's a concept thing. on a certain level it's not so different from ornette coleman's "free funk" albums, where dudes are just vamping all over the place with no regard for anything like a hook.

syclop at least has some hooks?

moonship journey to baja, Wednesday, 16 July 2008 07:51 (eleven years ago) link

The Bubbletease podcasts are packed full of incredibly tuneful, melodic and hooky stuff, supposedly all Fulton originals (I've rarely noticed a sample at least). Most of that never sees a release, so I wonder if he just thinks the skronky, squiggly style is what the world wants from him?

jng, Wednesday, 16 July 2008 14:06 (eleven years ago) link

God, reading back through this thread has reminded me how badly I want an ID on that awesome fuzzy ambient techno track that comes before the Streisand edit on the RA podcast.

jng, Wednesday, 16 July 2008 14:10 (eleven years ago) link

on a certain level it's not so different from ornette coleman's "free funk" albums, where dudes are just vamping all over the place with no regard for anything like a hook.

haha. funny. i'm currently listening to a Jamaaladeen Tacuma album :D

jaxon, Wednesday, 16 July 2008 16:44 (eleven years ago) link

Definitely hear the Music is Rotted One Note, Jaxon, but in a good way, for me at least.

Great variety to the productions, more than I was expecting. Holds up to multiple listenings in a variety of contexts.

autogucci cru (deej), Monday, 15 June 2009 01:04 (ten years ago) link

i saw him once live, it was wicked. not really as floaty as the RA mix or the bubbletease podcasts though, very high disco tempo to the whole thing. seemingly endless edit of that old philly soul classic 'only the strong survive' that just went on and on and on while he abused the EQ will live long in the memory!

Executive Producer Wolf Dick (haitch), Monday, 15 June 2009 01:32 (ten years ago) link

he's one of the deejays i most want to see live that i haven't seen yet. his online mixes are all outstanding.
