INFO > Nigel Champion and Mark Franklin formed techno-house team N-Joi in 1989; the duo was later joined by vocalist Samantha ‘Saffron’ Sprackling. The aptly named “Anthem” first appeared on N-Joi’s white label debut EP, and then featured on the act’s first release for Deconstruction, “Music From A State Of Mind.” A proper single issue followed, and “Anthem” broke into the top 10 of the UK Singles Chart in 1991. This 1995 US reissue includes new remixes by Darrin Friedman and Richard Vission & Pete Lorimer, along with the original mixes.

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.

FACT > As the collection featured in the prior post lacks a contribution from seminal Madchester band Happy Mondays, here’s a fine offering from Mr. Shaun Ryder and company. Oakenfold and Osborne build on their original productions, while Pete Lorimer takes “Kinky Afro” in a different direction.
