BeMusic Part One: Quango Quango - "Love Tempo (Dub Mix)"
Brilliant proto-house produced by Bernard Sumner (under the BeMusic alias, which various New Order members used for outside productions) in 1983, featuring Simon Topping from A Certain Ratio and The Hacienda's Mike Pickering. The a-side is classic (albeit overplayed) but this more minimal/dubby flipside sounds even more crisp today, striping off the new wave vocalizations in favor of vibrant conga and 808 interplay and a borderline absurd number of build ups and breakdowns. Big one at the Paradise Garage...Chicago dudes like Vince Lawrence jammed it as well. Enjoy!
More BeMusic jams to come this week...
