Heat It Up

This will wake you up…

Wee Papa Girl Rappers were twins, Sandra and Samantha Lawrence (Total S and TY Tim), formerly backing singers for Feargal Sharkey, who had a few minor hits in the late 80s. Heat It Up (made with 2 Men And A Drum Machine) hit number 21, the double trouble rapping and chanting riding on a 1988 club rhythm (and coupled with a Kevin Saunderson remix). It got them on Top of The Pops. Follow up Wee Rule went top 10.

The version at the top is a recent re-edit from SanFranDisko and comes as a free download. I rather like it.

Nice Brass

You can’t think that having acid house hits played by a brass band (Stockport’s Williams Fairey brass band) is anything other than a great idea can you? Yesterday’s Kevin Saunderson track re-done under the leadership of Jeremy Deller. A Youtube user recommends playing the two together, one starting 30 seconds or so after the other. It takes a while to get the synch-up to work but it’s well worth the effort. If you’ve got nowt else to do.

The Groove That Won’t Stop (Acid Brass)

We Need To Talk About Kevin

Kevin Saunderson that is- Detroit originator, whose acid house track The Groove That Won’t Stop is the bangingest, acidest, grooviest, squelchiest, most glorious acid house track there is. A piddly little mp3 doesn’t do it justice. Get it on vinyl. Play it loud. Makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.
