electro chipmunk vocal classic
Newcleus - Jam On It ( 1984 )
I've been intending to write some sort of opus on Henry Stone, Sunnyview*, the mess of other labels he owned, and the accidental origins of Miami Bass due to a crack fuelled sex session with some 'exotic dancers' in the studio, but I'm a lazy sod
* "Sunnyview" was the label this originally came out on, although of course I first heard it on some Streetsounds Electro compilation like everyone else in the UK... I used to love listening to the first two Streetsounds comps on acid ( nostalgia, sigh )
edit: can you spot Jean Claude Van Damme as "background scenery" in the video above?
edit: another hint - JCVD is wearing blue shorts (@ 5:59 ish )
edit; i used to work with a woman who used to laugh about her brother spray painting 'popping 'n locking
' on her parents garage door - he's now the number one authority in the uk on *** ************
edit; there's probably a whole post i could make about the woman in the white sweater in the Breakin'
clip that features in the video above who ended up starring in Ninja 3: The Domination
and her bad working relationship with "boogaloo shrimp", but someone else has already done that:
