Happy New Year intrepid ISM readers! I thought I’d start the new year off with something I hope to make a lot more time for this year, and that’s bugging all you techno geniuses for track IDs. I’ve been trying to identify these two particular jams for quite some time.
The first is a cut off Feelgood’s side of the classic Fever: Time to Get Ill Volume 6 mixtape circa 1996. It’s the intro, in fact, and you can download it here. It would be nice to finally know what this is after 14 years of digging it.
The second track is from a live set performed somewhere in Brooklyn by Bang Goes and Styro 2000 in 2006. The track is ridiculously catchy, and features several different voice synthesizer versions of the phrase “jump rope”. It’s infectious, and you can listen to this mix where it gets played at around 12:45 min in. That mix is Galoppierende Zuversicht, by the way, aka Bang Goes and Styro 2000, the other parts of that set and many other mixes are available at the Wolf+Lamb archive. The track in question always makes me think of Grooveyard’s “Watch Me Now” or something by Ken Ishii. And I could swear the other vocal sample says “Gez Varley”, but I really don’t think it’s a G-Man track. So, help a brother out?
ETA!!! The above “jump rope” track is actually “Jumbo” by some cat calls himself Spiller. Bigups to Joel Gajewski from the 313 list for spotting it! I am removing the mp3 above and instead linking to a youtube video of the track:
Please feel free to reblog this everywhere you can so that I can make some used record dealer happy.
