Street Players-Vol. 1

Another secret weapon made available by the generosity of DC's own Video Killer and all around awesome dude & DJ - John Bowen. Sharing the treats is what makes everyone happy...

According to my homeboy via Youtube, this is the track that inspired "The Bomb" by The Bucketheads on Henry Street. Serious bizness indeed... featuring sample from Chicago's 'Street Player' - so get some!

A1 Gonna Make You Move (5:50)
A2 Somalia (6:30)
B1 Make It Thru The Night (7:39)
B2 Make It Thru The Dub (6:28)

Produced by David Chang & Victor Simonelli.

Awesome 3-Don't Go

Ayo! Long time no blogtalk Vinyl Vault familia! My apologies bout that. Hustlin Hustlin... just back in DC for July 4th weekend and some change, then back to the Lehigh Valley for the serious vinyl hustle! Gonna be a serious summer - that's all I can say *!

Got some ish upped to mediafiyah just haven't had time to post proper txt. Here goes...

Once again, a Discogs brotha from another motha put it down so solid that I just have to Ctrl C/V! Reference love going out to Budnik; this review is verbatim and on point!

The piano line is instantly recognisable - why arent pianos used in dance tunes anymore!?!, the break is stolen from the Stone Roses "Fools Gold" which may have been sampled from something else - its a familiar break - these old breaks work so well in a house template. The bass and breaks really drive the track along. The vocals are actually quite good although lyrically it is simple. Another timeless classic from probably the most pivotal era of dance music and when breaks really did sound phat and roll, unlike todays disjointed breaks tunes.

The Kicks Like A Mule Remix is the one that got all the attention back in the day. Great to mix into with the cuts, scratches and shouts of "DONT"..."GO". The K.L.A.M mix has some heavy hitting sub kicks too that do sound great on a club system. Again, their mix also uses a very nice break. Other than that they havent messed with the track too much, apart from swapping the break.

A2. Don't Go (Second Movement) (4:59)

michael jackson - gone to soon

im still at a loss and can't quite understand how he's gone. He's done so much with music and all his contributions to charities and other things. Forget all the accusations thrown his way. he is missed, he is loved, and I think this is another blow to real music as todays artists(wannabes) can never touch this mans legacy.i know he will rest in peace and finally be happy as he was never was in this life. will miss you always mj and your music will always be enjoyed for many years by your fans,real music lovers, and house djs everywhere. As his song from the dangerous album states he is gone to soon. I know this is not a post of music but i know everyone on this blog can understand and cherish this. this video hits home.

Rest In Peace Michael... Special Tribute Mix

Here's a special Tribute mix done by DJ Riddler of some of Michael Jackson Greatest Tunes, He will surely be missed and was a big inspiration to many of us. I grew up listening to his music as a child and my birth day is the same as his August 29th...I even had that red jacket he wore in the thriller video (Don't Laugh). But all jokes aside this is a great lost and he will always be remembered as the King Of Pop!---12inchjunkie

Sa-Fire - Sa-Fire

Sa-Fire was born Wilma Cosmé, 1967, in San Juan, Puerto Rico. She grew up mostly in East Harlem and began her singing career as a session vocalist.

Sa-Fire (aka Safire) was discovered at an audition for Cutting Records. While she did not have massive pop chart success, she is nevertheless considered an important part of the success of Latin freestyle and remains one of the most recognizable names in that genre. Her debut single, "Don't Break My Heart" (1986), remains well regarded by freestyle music and Club/Dance fans. "Let Me be the One" (1987), her follow-up single, proved to be a bigger hit than her debut. "Boy, I've Been Told" the first single of her self-titled debut album crossed over to pop radio and became her first pop hit reaching #48 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song was the #1 selling single in New York for twelve straight weeks and the #1 song on the old Hot 97 radio station in 1988. The song topped the charts in all of the major radio stations throughout the United States.

Sa-Fire scored her most commercially successful hit with the ballad "Thinking of You" in 1989, when hit peaked at #4 on the Adult Contemporary chart and at #12 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was translated into Spanish (as "El Recuerdo de Ti") by the singer/actor, Ruben Blades.

In 1989, Sa-Fire and "Thinking of You" were featured in a public service announcement commercial for AIDS awareness. The commercial was seen on Spanish language TV across the U.S. and Latin America. She also sang the song on an episode of the 1989 revival of The Mickey Mouse Club.

Those hits and others helped her debut album remain a strong seller for years, although it is currently out-of-print. The album peaked at #84 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and at #79 on the Billboard Hot 200. Many agree Safire's debut album entitled "Safire" is the best freestyle album of its genre.Other singles of hers that charted on the Billboard Hot 100 include "Gonna Make It" and "Made Up My Mind." She was fortunate to have a major record label, Mercury/PolyGram, behind her to push her career forward.

Sa-Fire has been featured in various magazines, such as U.S. Magazine, Billboard, Vogue, Elle and was the first Latina to grace the cover of Spin Magazine. She has also appeared on television programs such as American Bandstand, Pat Sajak Show, Joan Rivers Show, Latin Connection, MTV International, Party Machine, PM Magazine, and Entertainment Tonight. Sa-Fire has performed throughout the United States, Japan, Europe, Caribbean and South America. She has won numerous awards, including six New York Music Awards, three Desi Awards, and an ASCAP award for writing "Thinking of You," which was cited as one of the most-played songs on radio.

Sa-Fire was given a lifetime achievement award at radio station WKTU's "Freestyle free 4 all" concert in Atlantic City in 2007.


The 1990s

In 1990, she remade "I Will Survive" for the soundtrack of the film She-Devil, incorporating a house and hip-hop element into the 1970s disco hit.

In 1991 Sa-Fire was featured in "A Christmas Message" with Mercury/PolyGram labelmates Vanessa L. Williams and Brian McKnight, with her rendition of the Christmas classic "Joy to the World."

Safire teamed up with friend and former teen hearthrob,Tommy Page to form the dance group La Casa. Together Safire & Tommy, wrote and produce 3 tracks for the "New Faces" compilation on Warner Bros records in 1993. This was not the first time Safire & Tommy collaborated on a project. In 1990, they both co-wrote, produced and sang the duet "Don't give up on Love" , the song was featured on Tommy's 1990 album, "Paintings on my Mind".

Although Freestyle music waned in mainstream popularity in the early 1990s, Sa-Fire counteracted this by releasing the house song "Taste the Bass" as a single from her second album, I Wasn't Born Yesterday. "Taste the Bass" peaked at #6 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. The lead single, "Made up My Mind," was an immediate success within the dance music and urban music communities, peaking at #9 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play. However, the song stalled at #80 on the Billboard Hot 100.

During the mid 1990s, after a short hiatus, Sa-Fire returned with a Spanish language album, Atrevida. However, this first try at a salsa album was not commercially successful.

The 2000's

After another hiatus, Sa-Fire announced the release of her new album Bringing back the Groove in 2001. The album featured a cover of the New Edition hit "Can You Stand the Rain," featuring Cynthia. The single sparked moderate dance and urban format radio airplay.The album's second single, "Don't Break My Heart 2002," peaked at #3 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play.

As of 2008, Sa-Fire continues to tour, as well as produce and write for other artists. Sa-Fire is also working on a 2009 calendar and a documentary.

2009 - Her most recent single, "Exotique," was released on Masterbeat.com on 05/05/09 and is now released everywhere else. Remixes are included from Mark Alston, Johnny Vicious, Jim Heinz, Jamie J Sanchez, and Mike Rizzo. The original version was produced by Nick Saya.

Kings Of Tomorrow - Fade II Black

1997 was the year when this track was released and this record reminds me so much of the local bar that I was djing at, at the time. For me as a DJ that doesn't play so much soulful house music there's only a few selections that I can consider good soulful tracks and this record is one of them. Great Kick drum and a catching Melody, The Original Mix & The Roger Sanchez Mix are my favorite. ---12inchjunkie

Finally!!! I found it! Rob just sent me the single track by a Vinyl Vault visiter, But I was doing some mp3 hunting and came across this whole 12 inch! I don't know who to thanks for this but I finally got it. It's only 2 songs on this vinyl and the classic track here is ''Get It Off"...I will consider this track my number 1 deep house track of all time. I remember one time around the late 90's when I went to a club in NY called Vinyl Little Louie was djing at the time and when he dropped this record the crowd went nuts! I actually get euphoria everytime I listen to this. This track takes me back to High School, House Parties, & many other good memories...Enough of me talking and hit that download button---12inchjunkie

33 1/3 Queen - Searchin'

This Track "Original Mix" (Released In 1990 On Nu-Groove "NG-053") Is One Of My Many Favorites. This Single Was Re-Released & Remixed In 1995. A Guy Called Gerald 1988 Controversial Song "Blow Your House Down" Thought As A Dis' Record To Some, Was Were They Sampled The Bassline. The Girl Singing Searching Over It Is A Sample From Debbie Trusty - "Searchin' For Some Lovin'". The Hard Production, Just Takes It To Another level. I Like To Mix This With Armando's - "100% Of Disin' You" It Has The Same Mood To Me And Level Of Energy.

Cajmere-Underground Goodie Mixes

My favorite from this is Green Velvet's 'Conniption' - Thumpin' 4x4 w/ bleepy weird synth progression... Very minimal and clearly made for the Warehouse environment. Reminiscent of early Richie Hawtin. Grimey!

'Feel It' is also impressive; perfect for that prime time when everyone in the place is 'feelin it'. Definitely more on the house tip. Overall great release from Cajual, albeit a bit obscure.

Fast Eddie - The D.J./"Let's Go" (Remix)

"Fast Eddie gained immense popularity during the heyday of Chicago House Music (1986–1988). During that time, he was also spinning on WGCI and WBMX in Chicago.

In 1986, he produced one of his first singles in collaboration with Kenny "Jammin'" Jason entitled "Can You Dance?".

In 1988 he left WGCI for WBMX to concentrate on producing. In the same year he scored one of his biggest hits with "Acid Thunder" on the D.J. International Label, being regarded as a classic of the Chicago acid house genre.

And yet, it was "Hip House" that really increased his popularity. Fast Eddie popularized this genre — essentially hip-hop lyrics over house beats — and produced several tracks afterwards.

In 1990, he tried his hand at Gangsta Rap by forming the group America's Most Wanted but without much success.

Around 1995, Fast Eddie made two collaborations that are considered under the genre of ghetto house with DJ Sneak and with DJ Funk. Both songs gained a lot of airplay on Chicago radio and in clubs."

A1 Let's Go (Fast Eddie's Mix)
A2 Let's Go (Tyree's Gone Mix)
B1 Let's Go (Joe Smooth's House Mix)
B2 Let's Go (Julian 'Jumpin' Perez Mix)

Free Mix download - Version Sound Afterdark. Deep Afterhours smoovness...

Sorry I been absent from this blog for a minute - dealing with last minute b.s. before moving back up to Allentown where the REAL rarity rips will start being posted on the regular!! Super excited!

Had to get some stuff off my chest, and I do that by going deep into my inner DJ and churning out a hot fire mix. Not unlike Danny F, I've been on more of a mature 30+ Afterhours vibe (here in DC, the status quo for "club music" has become so watered down that I have no interest in contributing to it) - and all my good friends DJ or otherwise really get started after 2AM.... Hope you enjoy it and please feel free to leave comments and spread the love!

Version Sound, DC's undisputed Dub heavyweight champions have just launched a Tech/House/Classics subsidiary called Version Sound Afterdark. Their sound is geared towards the more mature, diverse and abstract musical mavericks who thrive after 2AM.

This is the debut mix, clocking in at just under an hour and represents the 'late shift' of techno and house music. Please download and spread the link to friends/family.

Download Mix (98MB @ 256k Mp3): http://rapidshare.com/files/239641587/Version_Sound_Afterdark_-_I_Love_Bass_Promo_Mix_2009.mp3

Be back in a bit with more posts - just got done ripping a ton of Bmore classic records and this will be my exclusive outlet. Peace!
