Kevin Saunderson

SINGLES Furry Phrealts- ‘Soothe‘ ($50K) Rerelease of this seminal deep house track with 168 and Chicane on remix duties. Great, but the vocalssound a little dated when upfront and work best in the dubbier mixes. Lone Swordsman 'A Bag of Blue Sparks (Warp) First five tracks all the new Weatherall/ Tenniswood album Stay Down and it looks like being as good (and as weird) as honed. Scary, snappy and occasionally even happy. Billie: 'Girltriend' (Virgin) You know how we said last issue that Darren Stokes was on the right side of Credible. choosing not to remix Dario G? We lied. He was busy mixing this instead, formula nquRG at its worst. ooh-Sinclair: ‘Ultlmate Funk‘ (Yellow) _ First single off his Paradise collection which is out now too. Wrong choice to release firstfrom the French disco funk playboy when the l,2.3,4 of ’Gym TOnic‘ would have sold better. Cevin Fisher: "The Freaks Come one (Ministry) Being caned by Twitch and anyone else who could get their hands on it for a while now, but out at last on general release. Disco~tech house with 'The freaks come out“ every couple of minutes. The Shrink: ‘Neruous Breakdown’ (Vt) Hard and unrelenting house track that is going to appear on absolutely every one of those ‘Tunes of Summer‘ compilations. Goes ’ts there a shrink in the-house?’ loads; too.
