On Heavy Rotation

The latest vinyl on the turntable at Chez Carroll:

  • Run Jeremy - Windowlicker - a reworking of the Aphex Twin classic so that it can be played in a house set.

  • This Ain't Chicago - Ride the rhythm - French record label Parisonic commissioned two re-tweaks of the early British house classic.... 'ride the rhythm, ride the floor, ride till you can't ride no more'

  • Incognito - Don't you worry 'bout a thing - Talkin Loud reissued this wedding standard for the 30-somethng generation, but the real gem is Out Of The Storm

  • Lovejuice - Ripped to the tits / Acid love - smiley for a record label, acid basslines. What more do you need?

  • Lorna - Jumpin jack flash - old school jack trax vocal samples put together for dancefloor mayhem by a bunch of German pranksters

  • Mario Fabriani / Majik J - Detour EP - West Coast label uses Kiwi and Italian talent to create stonking West Coast style house. I am sure there is something post-modern about this in a shipping coals to Newcastle kind of way
