Andy C Slip N Slide / Roll On Andy C's follow up to his previous 'Bass Logic' EP came in 1993 with the title track 'Slip 'N' Slide. Retaining Hardcore elements of the era with the typical orchestra stabs dropping to the lower octaves with oscillating low sub bass lines over off beat breaks. Sonz of a Loop Da Loop Era (Danny Breaks), from the legendary record shop in Romford 'Boogie Times' was tasked with remixing Andy C's 'Bass Constructor'. Original vocals which were performed by Andy's local friend Karen, layered over African vocal sample chants. Hardcore flavours with a nod back to Eastern Promise's (RAMM2) high sub blip echoes. Moving forward in time to 1995, Andy C smashed it out of the park with Ram's 12th release. 'Roll On' was originally the B side, but after smashing up dance floors all over the world, it became almost as anthemic as 'Valley of the Shadows'. Instantly recognisable string pad chords highlight precision tooled breakbeats of the newer Jungle genre that had emerged out of Hardcore. Heralded as a true classic from that year. ‘Cool Down’ was originally the A side of RAMM12, this Amen tear out track with the vocal 'cool down the dance hall' did exactly the opposite, setting dance floors ablaze with its energy and attack. 12"
Origin Unknown The Touch / Valley Of The Shadows Enter the Origin Unknown with the 2 massive tracks "Valley of the Shadows" and "The Touch". In 1993, Andy C & Ant Miles set out about creating a fourth release for the newly established Ram Records, now just a year old. With Hardcore still prominent in the clubs around the world, The Touch features rollercoaster bass swoops against energetic breaks flowing around the main sung vocal "c'mon and touch me". An early sign of the precision arrangements that became synonymous of Ram's early sound that followed over for many years. Whilst going through the remaining samples in the sampler that had not been used on the A side, the pair suddenly went on a tangent with one of the drum breaks. Experimenting with the new timestretch function in the Akai sampler, they soon had a shuffle groove layered and moving. With Ant Miles' sculpted and edited arpeggio bell line sample, a new overall sound and vibe was beginning to emerge out of their studio Atari ST computer. Utilising an original organic analogue string pad, the haunting sinister vibe became complete. With the vocal from the BBC QED documentary 'Glimpses of Death' - "I felt, like I was in a long dark tunnel" all that remained was one of the most memorable pounding bass lines to sit underneath it all. The result was an instant impact on the scene, heralded as one of the first anthems of the Jungle genre. Multi award-winning and the track that cemented Andy & Ant and their label Ram Records within the scene. Ram Records 12"

For a duo whose youthful energy rejuvenated the world of house music at the start of the 2010s, it seems incredible that Disclosure are now into their second decade of musical life.

The emphasis throughout DJ-Kicks is on motion. After a brief ambient introduction from Pépe’s Life Signs, Disclosure keeps the energy high, in a mix that showcases the wonderful malleability of a house beat in the right hands. From sub bass to disco samples to 303 tweak, all is welcome in Disclosure’s house, with the mix allowing individual songs space to breathe even as the pace remains harefooted. !K7 Records CD | LP Pre-Order
