I have no shame for my love of Paul Simpson’s work in the 1980s. The production value on his projects are in my mind, are near perfect for those big killer systems. This a dope dub. Snatch his records up, they usually can be found in EBay for $12 or less. He also has some stuff up on traxsource.
Eddy Grant is known for a ton of amazing club-ready productions, but there are several little sleepers that he also put out through his early 1980s reign. This one is a melancholic synth workout that seems perfect for creepy/lurker nights and Halloween.
Very bizarre early 90s techno record that rips off the horn/sax line from Lil Louis’ conversation. Could probably use an edit but I like the drawn-out deep feel of this cut. This record is on the “Outer Limits” label that was distributed interestingly enough by Quark.
Spent the entire night at home watching these when I should have been doing something more productive. I love the cosmic weirdo instrumentals that are interspersed throughout the video, though the shitty california rockabilly is a bummer. Homeboy has some other rad 80s skate vids on his account too. These are all broken into different parts so check them out.
I really love the original (especially the long drum break), but felt it could be tightened up and might benefit from an extended intro and an added punch in the more energetic/intense part. I whipped this up pretty quickly so its still a bit raw, but nevertheless it went over well when I played it at the Paradox in Baltimore last month. Enjoy!
I recently copped this 12″ and decided to fool around with making an edit of it. There are so many bad parts in the original, but I loved the main groove that it takes on. Not sure if I am totally happy with it or not, but the folks at Dollar Bin Jams decided it was good enough to put on blast so enjoy!
