a couple of v old classics i recently encountered:

Jesse Saunders - On And On
good electro-boogie/house crossover but you could make a good case for this as first house track ever maybe (released in 84 but maybe first recorded in 83)

Farley Jackmaster Funk - Jackin The Trax
to hear it you'd believe hercules & love affair have been basing much of their sound on this one track. great house with that macabre synth hook seemingly taking its cue from italo and electro from a few years earlier.

I saw the Ladomat 100 compilation in a charity shop today, listening to it now the pre-Kompakt quirkyness seems so great. I think I should hunt down more of this stuff.

mmmm, Sunday, 16 March 2008 01:05 (eleven years ago) link

the only thing on Ladomat 2000 i've heard is this, which i like. what else is worth checking for?

this is all-time top 10 luv 4eva material: http://www.discogs.com/release/49178

hardwax appears to have copies of moodymann's ultra-classic 'dem young sconies' 12". a repress, perhaps?? in any case, can't rate this one highly enough.

haitch, Monday, 17 March 2008 01:19 (eleven years ago) link

I would be real surprised if Dem Young Sconies was an OP. That record makes you wonder what would have happened if KDJ had decided to concentrate on techno. That record hasn't left my crate in years.

Display Name, Monday, 17 March 2008 01:25 (eleven years ago) link

Model 500 'Starlight' is still a favorite of mine. Play doubles of that late at night. The recent Echospace/Deepchord remixes are alright, but the original holds up just fine. Others I still love, Ken Iishi 'Overlap (Mark Broom mix)', Joey Beltram 'Energy Flash', Burger/Ink 'Las Vegas', Axis' lp on Guidance, Moodyman 'Forevermore', Jay Dee 'Plastic Dreams' must still be making them money, i see new remixes of that every year. Then, play Irresistable Force's 'Flying High' over some djax to kick out the jams.

U-Haul, Monday, 17 March 2008 15:38 (eleven years ago) link

Yeah that's weird about "Dem Young Sconies" appearing at Hardwax. Do they sell bootleg stuff? I mean there is always the chance that Planet E re-pressed it I suppose, but I would think they would've used one of the Planet E Classics labels or something rather than the original label like they're showing on the Hardwax site.

matt2, Monday, 17 March 2008 17:38 (eleven years ago) link

hardwax sold the sharevari repress, which was rumored to be a bootleg, so who knows?

elan, Monday, 17 March 2008 19:10 (eleven years ago) link

i'm all for bootlegs of shit that never gets repressed, though (like sharevari).

elan, Monday, 17 March 2008 19:11 (eleven years ago) link

True and the "Sharevari" boot just feels very different from a bootleg of an active label that has even been re-pressing some of it's "Classics." No judgement in these statements (I got both the "Sharevari" and "U Can Dance If U Want 2" bootlegs) just wondering.

matt2, Monday, 17 March 2008 20:08 (eleven years ago) link

i didn't know there was a bootleg of "u can dance"

totally awesome

elan, Monday, 17 March 2008 21:09 (eleven years ago) link

but i'm still waiting for the "moody trax" boot

elan, Monday, 17 March 2008 21:36 (eleven years ago) link

a bunch of DYS 12" appeared at the Planet E booth at DEMF 06 (i think it was) along with the original Designer Music 4 track EP. DYS was $5, DM was $15. i got em both as each was amongst my most wanted Planet E's.....

All the more proof that it's really unacceptable that I've never made it to DEMF. I keep trying to convince my wife that it would be a great vacation.

matt2, Tuesday, 18 March 2008 14:21 (eleven years ago) link

is this the right place to ask about forever sweet-- namely, is anything else they did as perfect as "bleed"? does other ladomat stuff sound similar?

"All the more proof that it's really unacceptable that I've never made it to DEMF. I keep trying to convince my wife that it would be a great vacation.

-- matt2"

it is a great vacation. i bring my wife and my younger sister with me every year. at least 20 of my friends go up every year from pittsburgh as well, not even counting all the people i know from around the world who show up. its as good of a time as you can have if you like dance music.

pipecock, Tuesday, 18 March 2008 19:36 (eleven years ago) link

That'd be the problem. Wifey loves dancing but doesn't like "dance music." It only takes about 30 seconds of any synthetic beat of the thump-thump-thump-thump-this-is-going-to-be-a-dance-song variety and my wife gets extreme anxiety. She loves Depeche Mode and plenty of early 90's poppier house stuff but can't stomach a moment of "true" techno, even something as gorgeous as "R-Theme" or "Dominas." I know, it doesn't make sense to me either.

matt2, Tuesday, 18 March 2008 20:07 (eleven years ago) link

My bf and I went for the first time last year and hope to make it a tradition. He is not into dance music/music in general as much as I am, but he's willing to indulge me and has family in Michigan so it works out. It is our one chance each year to hear this music in its "proper" setting (i.e. not between a pair of headphones or blasting from my car).

lou, Tuesday, 18 March 2008 20:22 (eleven years ago) link

Yeah, I'm pretty much asked to keep the beats in my headphones.

matt2, Tuesday, 18 March 2008 20:33 (eleven years ago) link

I really, really want to go to DEMF again this year but it overlaps with a 2 week Germany trip. I guess that balances out.

littlewhiteearbuds, Wednesday, 19 March 2008 15:45 (eleven years ago) link

Just got this one yesterday: http://www.discogs.com/release/4982

The locked groove on the A side is perfect. I let it play for 10 or 15 minutes yesterday.

man, that sucks. get her some good drugs and take her there, maybe she'll have a religious experience and you can all live happily ever after ;)

on the other hand, you could just go by yourself! there are lots of friendly techno nerds there.....

this is surely the greatest house track of all time

r1o natsume, Wednesday, 26 March 2008 22:09 (eleven years ago) link

it's wonderful woozy stuff certainly tho i always think the "i could have saved myself so much money..." line undermines it by bringing the lols.

would like to hear that, i liked the Varley tracks i heard on the 'Avanti' LP

I did a nice playlist some of you may like here:

G-Man/Gez Varley ftw.

littlewhiteearbuds, Friday, 28 March 2008 14:01 (eleven years ago) link

Oooh, is that the one with the red vinyl with the black streams through it.

Quo-Vadis is top-5 of all time material.

mehlt, Friday, 28 March 2008 15:44 (eleven years ago) link

the mix of '151' on that is so raw. is the rest of it as good!

No, 151 is the best cut on the record. I got real lucky because the guy that owned it only played Fantasy Girl(marked three stars on the cover) and never touched the rest of the LP.

The Fingers tracks are interesting because they sound like demo's of Washing Machine. I don't know, but I would guess that they were alternate takes from around the same time. The rest of the album varies in quality. The Phortune track on the b-side is the only other thing that stands out.

One other unrelated thing, the Dem Young Sconies records are legit. There must have been a few boxes of planet E records that got lost because my local store got a grip of old common factor 12"s. They were in the PE sleeves with the custom sticker and had the PE91-98 xerox catalog included. They are either new old stock, or they were bootlegged by incredibly detail oriented pirates hell bent on losing money.

Display Name, Friday, 28 March 2008 20:20 (eleven years ago) link

fantasy girl... you mean 'dream girl' by pfantsay club? i think that larry heard had this song heavy on the brain when he wrote 'the sun can't compare'.

elan, Saturday, 29 March 2008 05:15 (eleven years ago) link

i recently got that version of fingers 'can you feel it?' with robert owens singing on top - didn't know this version existed before but it's on that Legends Of House comp doing the rounds (same thing I got the Saunders and FJF tracka above from).

blueski, Saturday, 29 March 2008 18:58 (eleven years ago) link

it's pretty bad actually - worst Owens vocals ever.

blueski, Saturday, 29 March 2008 19:00 (eleven years ago) link

i've never heard that... i always figured that vocal mix was referring to the rhythm controll 'my house' vocal sample. can we hear robert owens' worst vocal ever?

can we talk about how awesome SEAMUS HAJI is?

moonship journey to baja, Saturday, 29 March 2008 23:34 (eleven years ago) link

ok not really, i mean i could care less about how awesome seamus haji is but i think ILX sort of unjustly ignored the big room sound of 2006

South African house - this gorgeous track is from 2015 (but I only recently discovered it). I know Afro House is a thing in the international dance scene, but I have no idea if this particular kind of stuff gets any traction outside of SA.
