Notes

Taken from the Deee-Lite Remix LP "Dancefloor Oddities & Sampladelic Relics - Deee Remixes"

A1: (Released 1990)
A2: (Released 1996)
B1: (Released 1996)
B2: (Released 1996)
B3: (Released 1990)

Taken from both "World Clique" and "Dewdrops In The Garden".

Tracks A2 & B1 have the artists' names switched around (see track listing below). This is as it is written on the reaction sheet from East West Records [London, UK] (see images) however, on the vinyl itself; none of the artists are mentioned.

What a great vinyl this is. Not only do you get a rework of the amazing "Groove Is In The Heart", (it is hard to imagine but Sampladelic pulled off a better version than the original, which to the un-trained ear you would not pick up on.), but two really good Deep/Mid 90's Progressive House by the likes of DJ Silver & Supa DJ Dmitry. "Music Selector Is The Soul Reflector" being my favourite as it just absorbs your mind, you can get totally lost in the hypnotic rhytm and groove the track has. It has some nice pads and riffs along with a proggy/deep house beat. Personally i don't think that much of the retro drum and bass track "Goodbeat" by Jonny L but it might be enjoyed by some Old Skool Drum and Bass enthuisiasts. "Won't You Listen To What The DJ Is Spinning" is a short DJ Tool sung in a womens voice which could be suited to some soft house tracks if you feel creative, but personally i don't rate it. All in all an excellent record, and i want a spare copy!!
I totally disagree. If the original is completely unrecognisable then it isn't a remix, it's just someone else's record - like the time the bike courier came for the aohex twin's remix of Curve, and Aohex hadn't bothered, so just gave him a totally random disc which came out as his Curve remix anyway. In truth it wasn't anything to do with Curve, it was just an Aohex twin record
Personally i don't think that much of the retro drum and bass track "Goodbeat" by Jonny L but it might be enjoyed by some Old Skool Drum and Bass enthuisiasts. [/quote]In actuality the Johnny L Remix of Good Beat is probably one of the truest remixes on the comp. To the untrained ear it might sound like a "catchy or retro remix" (no clue why deee-lite would be considered retro, besides defining retro at the time) but the fact is that remix uses only samples from the original 120 BPM GOOD BEAT flipped resampled effected to the point WHERE the sounds from Johnny L's remix in '96 were so different you couldn't tell but a few sections of any what the original song was. To me that is the essence of a true remix ... To break down the original to the point it was almost unrecognizable is what most sample based producers strive for. No one has to like the track... But you do need to understand the mechanics of this particular remix to really understand why and how it sounds like it sounds. Then decide if you (the listener) wants to respect it for what it is almost 20 years later, love it or hate it JOHNNY L is a true artist, and that remix to me is KEEPIN IT REAL!
