BASIC VISION

The 20/20 Vision offshoot Basic Vision continues to mine the folklore of the legendary Back To Basics with a selection of carefully selected deep cuts from the history of house music. Chris Cuevas' "Hip Hop" already sounded strong when Masters At Work chunked it up in dub form, and then Rob Mello perfected the jam when he performed an extended edit on the breakbeat fuelled jam. Eddie Fowlkes' "Where Will I Be?" is a classic slice of 90s vocal house, while Free Energy is an uptempo deep house jam for those feel good peak time moments. Black Science Orchestra sound utterly timeless on the soaring "New Jersey Deep," laying the soul on thick and keeping things fresh and funky throughout on their classic take of "Funkanova".

Introducing Basic Vision, a new imprint releasing a vinyl series of rare classics from the legendary back to basics club. Selected and compiled by the man who played the first ever record at the club, original resident DJ Ralph Lawson. All the tracks are cut to vinyl from the original master recordings and given enough time on high quality vinyl to ensure clean, loud pressings with original artwork by the godfather of punk design - Jamie Reid.

Basic Vision 001 features one of the greatest ever house music records - Lil Louis & The World's 'I Called You (The Story Continues), still a firm favourite of Ricardo Villalobos. The flip side boasts perhaps the most rare cut, first championed by DJ Harvey and still highly sought after today, M-I-Cara's 'Casa Beat'. While Mike Perras all time classic 'Keep Movin' completes the EP. 


STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Mike Perras' "Keep Moving" is 100% in my top 3 records of all time (Lil Louis's "I Called You"'s also pretty high up there...). On constant rotation at Wet Play and it's precussor Detroit Public Radio and obviously massive with Ralph at B2B; floor filling house music doesn't come any bigger than this. This record's got it all, don't let me catch you napping on this.

Ralph Lawson Presents Back To Basics Rare Classics Vol 2

Selected and compiled by the man who played the first ever record at the club, original resident DJ Ralph Lawson, the Basic Vision series collects together all those classic spun at the legendary Back To Basics way back when. All the tracks are cut to vinyl from the original master recordings and given enough time on high quality vinyl to ensure clean, loud pressings with original artwork by the godfather of punk design - Jamie Reid. The artwork spans across 4 records, which collected together will make the complete picture.
Basic Vision 002 features more gems for collectors including the legendary Mood II Swing Border Insanity dub of Crustation - "Flame". Championed by many DJs including raresh and Apollonia this stripped down cut was only found on the B side of the original release at a low pressing level. It has never been licensed for vinyl since as the original master has been lost for nearly 20 years. Lawson was determined to get this track onto the compilation as it is a bona fide back to basics bomb so he managed to trace down the master to a dusty DAT tape in a basement in New York and lovingly re-mastered from tape with a cut on one side to ensure a really loud pressing for DJ use. Flip the vinyl over and you will also get a treat in the shape of the eternal 51 Days - "Paper Moon", originally recorded in 1994 this is still one of the best-produced house records ever made. It can live in a DJ box forever as the perfect warm up record. If that wasn't enough the record is completed with Terence FM - Feelin' "Kinda High", another all time classic moment in time from Cajmere's Chicago based imprint Cajual. Again used at the right time causes devastation on the dancefloor. More real house music revived from the clubbing institution.
