Feel Every Beat

02 Feel Every Beat (Tactile Mix)
03 Feel Every Beat (Downstairs Mix)
04 Lean To The Inside
05 Feel Every Beat (12″ Remix)
06 Feel Every Beat (DNA Remix)
07 Second To None

FACT > 1991’s “Feel Every Beat” was Bernard Sumner and Johnny Marr’s third single as Electronic. The US issue features exclusive mixes by Dave Shaw & Winston Jones, UK remixes from Danny Rampling & Pete Lorimer and DNA, and Stephen Hague’s 7″ Remix. Also included are two excellent B-sides; instrumental “Lean To The Inside” is one of my favorite Electronic tracks, sounding like a theme for a British detective series.

02 Sexuality (Manchester Remix)
03 Sexuality (London Remix)
04 Bad Penny

INFO > Billy Bragg’s 1991 single “Sexuality” was produced by Johnny Marr, who plugged a bit of Electronic into Bragg’s folk rock style. With its witty lyrics, catchy chorus, and upbeat feel, “Sexuality” is a brilliant slice of pop, and the one and only attempt to get Billy out on the dancefloor.

LIVE > Seeing Johnny Marr perform tonight at The Trocadero Theatre in Philadelphia—looking forward to a mix of Marr’s new solo material, Electronic tunes, Smiths classics, and other stuff.

Electronic – Until The End Of Time

Today, 21 December 2012, is the last recorded day of the ancient Mesoamerican long count calendar—the end of time…

02 Until The End Of Time (Fluffy Dice Remix)
03 Until The End Of Time (Sweet Dub)
04 Until The End Of Time (Soulboy Collective 7″ Version)

FACT > Although “Disappointed” was assigned a Factory catalog number (FAC 348), and the label’s logo appears on the sleeve, the single was released via Parlophone. Neil Tennant handles lead vocal duties, and 808 State remixed the track; the single mix is also included on the soundtrack to the 1992 film, “Cool World.” Different B-sides feature on both sides of the Atlantic: the UK issue has the Stereo MC’s take on “Idiot Country”, while the US received a re-edit of “Gangster” produced by John Pillin and Steve Smith of the Art of Mix DJ promo service.

FACT > Back in 1994, the Creation label made a brilliant acquisition: A Certain Ratio’s back catalog from their Factory years. As well as reissuing ACR’s original albums (with almost all appearing on CD for the first time), Creation also commissioned a remix project involving predominantly Mancunian producers. Bernard Sumner and Johnny Marr (Electronic) reworked “Shack Up”, while former ACR band member Andy Connell revisited “Life’s A Scream” in a new mix exclusive to this release.
