Classic is back….

The vinyl version of Luke Solomon’s new single “Interceptor” was rolled out earlier this month and if you thought our version, sans vocals, was a little bit light then now’s your chance to bag the vocal version, exclusive to the digital release.

The whole package includes versions by Derrick Carter and Mark E and is also Luke and Derrick’s first appearance on the same release, so you can’t really go wrong in our opinion.  It’s all available at the usual online spots including the Defected website.

Here’s a short preview of our mix…

If that’s not enough for you then you may direct your web browsers to the Classic website and bag yourself a mix we’ve put together for them.  They were also a little curious as to who exactly we are so the accompanying interview will hopefully assuage the public’s desire to delve into the personalities of the people behind their favourite tunes.

Track Listing:
01. Jamie Lloyd ‘Beware Of The Light’
02. Deepchild ‘Bearded Hyph’
03. Julio Bashmoore ‘ Everyone Needs A Theme Tune’
04. Fantastic Mr Fox ‘Sepia Song’
05. Robag Wrume ‘Dopamin’
06. Deepchild ‘Stripjoint Mathematics’
07. Littlefoot ‘Great Dark Spot’
08. Sepalcure ‘Everyday Of My Life’ (Jimmy Edgar Remix)
09. Joy Orbison ‘The Shrew Would Have Cushioned The Blow’

bought some new music…

I freaked out the other day when I saw Eastern Bloc Records in Manchester closed down – I thought, “Goddamn not another record store gone!” – thankfully it looks like they’re just relocating, at least that’s what their Facebook page says. So, since I can’t pop in and see what Eastern Bloc are holding and we’ve got a mix for Classic that needs gettin’ done asap, I done bought me a few WAV’s online. In no particular order here’s a bunch of tunes that we were into:

interview and mix put up by teshno.com…

The lovely people at teshno have decided we’re worth hearing about and have put up an interview with a recent mix. I think we were supposed to send through some photos of ourselves but I guess if you read the interview you’ll find out just how poor we are at promoting ourselves. Sorry teshno – please accept our public apology… and our thanks for caring about who we are and what we do.

btw if you’re into techno type music and stuff, teshno deserves a bookmark on yer browsa bruv… blap!

New shit…

     

We’re gonna ignore the fact that we haven’t posted on here in ages. The important thing is we’ve had two new Ep’s released in the past couple of weeks and you people need to hear ’em.

We won’t bore you with our thoughts on what they sound like or anything, instead you can refer to the rather lovely review of our Hulme EP on Teshno.com.  There are also remixes of Set The Routine and Shoot Your Shot by Luke Solomon and Manuel Sahagun respectively.  Buy that shit!

from the vaults…

Here we are again and it’s the second post in as many days. Yesterday was our busiest day yet and I’d like to thank everyone that’s paid a visit to the Bankwell blog so far. It’s been far more successful than we imagined and as long as you keep coming, we’ll keep posting.
Today we have the first side of a vintage Kamo mixtape. Recorded in late 2001 on our trusty Zoom 10 track, it was the product of many months of hard work and, aside from a few little bits, sounds utterly charming to my ears today. The sound of two kids (I was about 15 and Liam was 18 or 19) trying to make a tape that measured up to their heroes.
The inheritance of “The Muppet Show” vinyl soundtrack from our recently departed Auntie Pat was the catalyst.  We were given about three crates of records stacked with Dean Martin, ‘Ol Blue Eyes and Boz Scaggs (why is “Silk Degrees” always tucked away in every old crate of records I’ve seen?), with battered copies of The Muppets 1 and 2 perched among the dust and crooning – With this we re-jigged the famous Muppet Theme Tune for the intro and lovingly interweaved skits from the record with tracks by Nas, Kool Keith, Pharcyde and a host of other mid-nineties hip-hop royalty. Not bad for a couple of kids. In fact, listening back to the Muppets soundtrack, we may just have to do a sequel.

So here it is in all it’s naive glory…

Ladies…

Booty

I’ve had a bit of a thing recently for female vocals…

Lorna Bennett slays on “Breakfast in Bed,” a song that oozes the kind of vintage tongue-in-cheek sexiness that makes it seem twee when compared to the outright raunchiness of more recent pop music – a good example of which is Salt ‘N’ Pepa’s “Chick on the Side,” (1987 is recent?) an ode to cheating-ass marks and mark-ass cheats as oppose to Bennett’s sugar sweet dedication to fucking in the morning (that is what she’s on about, right?).

Now Siriusmo’s probably a bit more well known for dropping keyboard-led spacey, disco bombs than churning out vocal led, french house stompers (don’t worry the keyboards are still there on this one), but it’s the vocals that get me.  Meandering innocently through the melody, it seduces and makes German (Yes.  German.) seem like the sexiest language on the continent.

Both of Carmen’s tracks illicit the same vibe, translating Siriusmo’s filtered samples into a stripped back disco affair as well as uttering the same sort of generic party vocals that Dana is probably purring in German.  Though my friend Bart tells me that “Boot Geklaut” means “Boat Snatch” so fuck knows what Dana’s on about.

What strikes me about the Carmen tracks in particular is how well they sit next to the current sonic landscape.  1984 was a long time ago but I don’t see “Throw Down” feeling out of place next to La Roux or Little Boots (though I reckon it’s miles above either).  It seems weird that we harvest so readily from our past but we rarely investigate it with much more interest than a window shopper.  That’s us I guess.  Window-shopping through the past.

Finally Aretha Franklin’s performance brings the kind of dry honesty that I adore about soul music.  It preaches truth in a way church never could.  Unless you go to Aretha’s church that is.  And quite frankly, the band, though excellent, could be pissing in a flower pot in the background for all I care.  As long as those vocals, smooth, sweet, harsh or hoarse, are up front and proud, I’ll be there.
