And to show I’m not dead, it’s my *fairly-new electro-tastic and Missy-reviving tune…basically the story goes a little something like this:
In 1983 or 4 a little known electro-hip-hop act called Grandmaster Scott and Dynamic 3 (they did the oft-copied ‘The Roof is On Fire’) recorded a track called ‘Request Line’ – now you probably know where this is going – Missy Eliott sampled this for her hit a couple of years back, ‘Work It’. Here I reunited the long-lost-cousins with some other classic electro/house tracks – ‘Telephone Call’ by Kraftwerk and Coldcut’s classic ‘My Telephone’ from their first LP with Lisa Stansfield on vocals.
This originally was intended to be a longer mix ‘Telephonic Symphony/Sympathy’ – a bit like the Money mix on Radio Clash; but ended up being this bootleg
*unless you knew where to err, dig that is 😉
