INFO > Given recent posts over at Within A Constant Groove about legendary Belgian label R & S Records, I thought I’d bust out this classic by Marcos Salon. Founded in 1989 by Renaat Vandepapeliere and Sabine Maes, R & S defined proper techno in the early 1990s with groundbreaking material from Aphex Twin, CJ Bolland, Dave Angel, Model 500, Jam & Spoon, Ken Ishii, and Joey Beltram. A massive rave-era hit upon its original release in 1991, “The Vamp” was remixed and reissued in 1997; among the knob twiddlers is Kevin Saunderson—an appropriate choice given that “The Vamp” utilizes elements of Reese & Santonio’s “The Sound.”
