From 1988's Rapacious remix of Bobby Brown's Don't Be Cruel
, with Timmy Regisford
and Boyd Jarvis
in a New York studio next door to the famous Studio 54 Club, there was a period of 10 years intense studio experience which had various personal id's like Egor
, AKA, EG's Remix, EDdidit and Eddie Gordon
before finding a permanent id of WestEnd
after the # 3
National hit "The Love I Lost
" with Sybil
which locked at # 1
in the UK Club Charts for 5 weeks too. After that there was a big demand for WestEnd remixes
and we hit the # 1
spot on the UK Club Charts no less than 13 times in the years that followed. CLICK MORE BELOW
Club Zanzibar from New Jersey with Tony Humphries on the mix too. After years of the same programming at the famous PWL studios we were teaching those boys new tricks. A UK Club Chart No:1 followed. Click more to listen...
Lonnie Liston Smith giving some real energy to the Wag Ya Tail cover of his Jazz Funk classic Expansions track. Xpand Ya Mind went to No:1 in the UK Club Charts and all the white label promos carried Lonnie's autograph on the label - check Ebay :-) Click more to hear.
The Love I Dub bounced around in the Ministry of Sounds club for months and months thanks to a 13 minute mix that the USA and UK House music DJ's loved playing, which was great because that is exactly why it was produced the way it turned out - deep and dark. more coming soon.
Alisha is Mica Paris's sister and can sing the houses down but never really hit the heights of her younger kin - the percussion on this track "Touch Me" on RCA was the first time Louie Vega of Masters At Work was used on a UK production after bringing him in from New York. He went on to become very famous whilst Alisha did great session work. Listening back now her Mic is too bassy on this mix. "Touch Me" song was sampled by the 49er's who had a huge hit with their version of Touch Me worldwide. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcHgvAZhWs8

Remixing this classic was amazing as we received the Multi Track tapes direct from Compass Studios in Nassau with all the band members writing on the track sheets describing the sounds in their own Jamaican language. It was like touching genuis. We did this remix for DMC as a gift for all their members worldwide. It sounds dated now on the sampling but we did this in 1993 - computers have come on a long way now. The timbali drums, kick and bass are well put together though. Click more to hear....
