Bomb The Bass – Beat Dis (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 17th April 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

“Beat Dis” is a 1988 track by British act Bomb the Bass, a studio production formed by producer Tim Simenon, from the act’s album Into the Dragon. It, like other hits of the era such as “Pump Up the Volume” by MARRS and “Theme from S’Express” by S’Express, largely consisted of samples.

The single was very successful in the United Kingdom, peaking at number two on the UK Singles Chart. It reached #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart for one week and was Bomb the Bass’ only chart hit in the U.S.

The record sleeve features a smiley lifted from Watchmen. This usage was the origin of the use of the smiley as a symbol for acid house.

Depeche Mode – Strangelove (Highjack Remix) (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 22nd July 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

A. Front

“Strangelove” is Depeche Mode’s eighteenth UK single, released on 13 April 1987, and the first single for the then upcoming album Music for the Masses. It reached number 16 in the UK charts (Depeche Mode would fail to make the Top 10 of the UK singles chart throughout the second half of the 1980s), but hit number 2 in West Germany and in South Africa, and was a Top 10 success in several other countries (Sweden, Switzerland, etc.). In the US, “Strangelove” charted twice on the Billboard Hot 100 reaching #76 in 1987 and again in 1988 #50. “Strangelove”was the first of nine number-ones on the US Dance charts, where it stayed for three weeks at the top in 1987.

This special US only 12” features new remixes of “strangelove” by Bomb The Bass, Mark Saunders and Tim Simenon. This remix is also known as “Strangelove ’88”. Sire Records commissioned these new remixes because they were not satisfied with the original release in 1987.

Also included are Justin Strauss remixes of “Nothing”.
