Phuture / Rise From Your Grave

A1 Rise From Your Grave (Wake Da F___ Up Mix)
A2 Rise From Your Grave (Wild Pitch Mix)
B1 Rise From Your Grave (Hard Head Mix)
B2 Rise From Your Grave (London Radio Edit)

Wake Da F___ Up Mix and Wild Pitch Mix are the two that do it for me on this record. Nice sampling of an older Phuture track, Your Only Friend, a Trax Records 12″ which I vow to one day add to my collection. I can’t help but think that the world would’ve been a better place if Roy Davis Jr. had moved to Detroit in the 90s and hung out with the locals.

A1 Spastik
AA1 Helicopter
AA2 Gak (Remix)

Add another 90s Hawtin classic onto the heap. Amazing intro on this track, its not until about five minutes in you realise your fist has been pumping of its own accord for the best part. True minimal percussion at its best. Double A side annotation well deserved on this record too, with Helicopter another minimal slow burner and Gak (Remix) an absolute crazy head shaker not long from the start.

A1 Backlash
AA1 Revelation 928
AA2 Lash Out

Richie Hawtin, Dan Bell and John Acquaviva going at it rave style on the Champion issuing of a Plus 8 record. Long decay on the hihat deep whirring bassline and vocal screams to get warehouse walls rattling in the industrial area of any Canadian city. Double A side comes complete with early 90s sci-fi(esque) sampling.

A1 Vampirella (Motorcityweakedoutfunkdub)
B1 Vampirella (InsanelikeColtranemix)
B2 Vampirella (Phreakapella)

Was planning to post in chronological order of purchase but this just arrived in the post today and has absolutely floored me. I vomited in my mouth with excitement a minimum of 7 times while listening to it just now. InsanelikeColtranemix is, as the name suggests, absolutely insane and Motorcityweakedoutfunkdub is just as out of control. Look out for the handclaps.

A1 Do Da Doo (Plastikman’s Acid House Remix)
B1 Do Da Doo (Exploding Plastic Mix)
B2 Do Da Doo (Drum Dub)

Can’t really go wrong with Richie Hawtin remixing his esteemed contemporary and equal, Richie Hawtin. Initially picked it up for the acid house remix but was treated to a nice surprise when the record arrived in the post and the drum dub turned out to be an absolute gem in its own right. Notch yet another one up for the B-sides.

baby ford - fetish

A1 Fetish (Mainmix)
B1 Fetish (Eons Alternative Mix)
B2 Fetish (Minimal)

Tad more intense than I usually go in for but this is the record that has kicked off my collection. Bought it for the B-side minimal mix, the cover art, and the Baby Ford name.
