Before downtempo, the excitement was in House music and atmospheric Drum'n'Bass; the earliest shows on BeatConscious offered eclecticism in the selecting and little concern with uniformity of style; this show mostly stresses the House side of things, but dips into broken beat of all sorts in the interests of variety.
The foundation track here is the closer, Jori Hulkkonen's “Let Me Luv U” and its remix by Muzique Tropique: Let me tell you, I lost no time contacting the label that released the Slow Burning album to find out the source of the vocal sample. Willie Hutch, as it turns out, from the soundtrack to Foxy Brown--here's the Amazon page: http://amzn.to/eGRYjZ ... in the words of one reviewer: “This work is brilliant… slices of delectable 70's soul…. If this jam doesn't give you goose pimples when Hutch sings … 'give me some of that good old love', chances are you are comatose.” Amen – this is samplitude perfection paired w/ Jori’s whispered urgings – don’t miss it!
