The Worst Edits Vol 4

Jamal Moss continues the much welcomed return to his Members Only series. After gifting us "The Worst Edits 1 & 2" a couple of weeks ago we get another pair this week, 3 & 4 (logically).

As usually it's high grade, VHS frazzled, sherm-disco; taking source material from the vast annals of disco history and recklessly blending them with Ron Hardy-esque editing techniques, spoken word mash-ups and lysergic percussion workouts. This, volume 4 is a special one: A1's precursor escapes me, but the alchemical explosion of hi-nrg electro-disco thrust is a spectacular and quintessentially Members Only end product that'll heat up any dancefloor. A2 snips up some John Cooper Clark dialogue (Jamal LOVES Manchester by the way! - Ed) over an experimental industrial noise jam; drawing attention to 'housing prima-donnas found within us'. This'll twist melons deep into the late night sessions!

Only side B and we get another strew out, highly narcotic blend of disco, tribal drums and Muzic Box energy; a totally indecipherable, FGTH-styled propulsion of almost orgasmic electricity; strap in tight! Finally, The Dell's "No Way Back", already the subject for both DJ Harvey and Theo Parrish edits, gets thoroughly PCP'd through Jamal's space-age hardware arrays, tearing it across dimensions and firing it down our ear's with maximum proton-thrust.

For edits that are totally off-grid and spontaneously gratifying, the Members Only series is one of the best there is. Stunning stuff from the Chicago legend.

Jamal Moss keeps up the momentum on his resurrected Members Only series, bringing forth two more volumes this week. Volume 3 kicks us off with a frenzied percussive disco jam, "Sweet Back - those wild congas, cowbells and clavs combining into a frothing, dizzying mess that'll cause dancer's feet to spark ignition against the wooden dancefloor - forest fire alert!

"Journey Into Ur Feelings" is equally rampant, pots and pans drums flailing out of control against female whoops and intermissive bass trills before Jamal lets all the tape heads loose against one of those gigantium Philly disco joints he keeps to himself that's like a pressure cooker about to pop! Dynamic disco explosion here folks - stand well back unless you want to be smothered in disco ball destruction!

"Restart The Flame" takes a tempting disco drum loop that's just outta my current radar range and atomizes it against the chorus of Dan Hartman's "Relight My Fire" - resulting in a discombobulating push-push whirlpool that gathers a concentric building energy ready for skilled DJs to utilize like radioactive isotopes in the nightclub reactor.

A truly combustible 12" from the master editor and Ron Hardy advocate - highly recommended!

The Worst Edits Vol 1

The triumphant return of one of the best underground edit series we've ever had in the shop! Jamal Moss' cult Members Only returns! Culled from 20 year old VHS tapes restored using a baking method, these edits are real deal Chi-town badness with artistic psychedelic filtering of proto house & disco.

Amongst this volume are holographic traces of Black Gold's "C'mon Stop' - a shimmering and bold slice of Prelude electro-boogie churned up with extra horns and other artefacts here by Jamal; a twisted percussion track; and air-raid siren guided take on Dan Hartman's "Relight My Fire" and concluding, with crazed slice of wigged out, loopy electro-disco with extra Franky Goes To Holiday chants and whoops.

The natural predecessor to Ron Hardy & Adonis - there's none that touch him at this shit!

Recommended.

Matt says: My no. 1 Chicagoan, tape edits extraordinaire and quite frankly one of the most beautifully eccentric and talented characters in our scene returns with him infamous and cult collected Members Only series. Unmissable for those that dig that OG Ron Hardy Muzic Box vibe.

The Worst Edits Vol 2

The triumphant return of one of the best underground edit series we've ever had in the shop! Jamal Moss' cult Members Only returns! Culled from 20 year old VHS tapes restored using a baking method, these edits are real deal Chi-town badness with artistic psychedelic filtering of proto house & disco.

On this volume he kicks off with a truly rare slice of proto-house, looped to perfection and flailing with overcharged energy; there's Lil Louis / Ron Hardy echo claps coursing through the A2 - again an unbeknownst electro-disco thrust - and this track to me is the very epitome of the Members Only series - earth shattering dancefloor moments that suck you into their vortex and spit you out an altered human being. One of his typically mental diva / vogue vox tracks manages to squeeze even more freshness out of Lyn Collins' "Rock Me Again And Again..." in a train wrecked collage of shermy club funk that could only come from the mind and hands of this twisted Chi-town genius. Finally, he keeps the rock club goths happy with a brutal industrial edit that pummels us into the asphalt repeatedly, leaving us bruised, battered and begging for more.

The natural predecessor to Ron Hardy & Adonis - there's none that touch him at this shit!

Recommended.
