Also from 'Soul Underground' (top mag - must try and find other issues), is the following snippet (it's from the month before the previous snippet - November 89):
"Well it has certainly taken its time, but 808 State's Quadrastate album has been one of the best selling independent dance LP's of the past month or two. Even Radio 1's Gary Davies has been heard to play the record which he apparently discovered on his hols in Ibiza. Well, there you go. An Italian 'version' of Quadrastate recently made it to these shores. The thoughtless bootleggers phoned several record shops around the country for potential sales, including Eastern Bloc - base of Creed Records. Nevertheless, the shop still ordered 50 copies...
As Soul Underground goes to press, 808 State are finishing work on 2 new remixes of Pacific State. These together with the original and an - as yet - untitled new one, complete a 4 track 12", which should be out by the end of the month on WEA. Production work offers are being thrust in their faces like nobody's business. The latest request has come from Prince's choreographer, Cat, who is currently at work on her album. Graham '808/biting Tongues' Massey has been asked to produce all manner of artists and musicians, including Morrissey.
Something more apt to this column featuring the Massey skills - on one track anyhow - is 'Freestyle' - an album by Manchester production team Social Kaos, aka Mo and Shazz. Ranging from Soul to Rap, some white labels will be passed around at the end of the month, but that's all that should be said at this stage...
Biting Tongues finally release their album, Recharge, as previewed a few issues back. This appears on Stockport's Cut Deep label, which also releases a debut 12" from P Love & Blue aka Indi and DJ Pete 'Ped' Smith, 17 and 18 years respectively. The 12" features 2 tracks, 'Time In The Studio' in a HipHouse style which uses the Seduction baseline, and 'Party Time' - DJ Blue's Hip Hop extravaganza.
Another 12" planned for Cut Deep is by MVITA (Manchester Vibe In The Year) namely DJs The Madhatter and Dr Lamont and featuring the toasting and rapping skills of Fonzo Butler.
A tape/white label to look out for towards the end of the year is by K Klass, a Leeds based garage/techno house producers who've done a handful of PA's around the North West. Their manager DJ Steve Williams, who is, himself recording some New Beat styled dance tracks together with John from Eastern Bloc.
Yargo have just released their second, and much delayed album, Communication, which features the single 'The Other Side Of Midnight'.
Meanwhile Yargo's drummer Phil is currently working with Manchester MC Tunes, temporarily 'stolen' from the 808 State/Spinmasters camp. The end result will be a Rap/house 12" provisionally entitled 'The Only Rhyme That Bites' and will be released on DFM Records."
