planet sabbath

Things are getting nicely up to date around here, Press Play #25 is going to be up shortly along with a few more newly discovered dusty grooves, in the meantime, however, a quick story...

Recently while listening to the latest 'Dub Disco Deli' (no 5 in the mix series) on Jonathan Moore's Leftside Wobble ( a blog thats been getting far too many mentions on here lately), I heard DJ Steef's sublime edit of Black Sabbath's 'Planet Caravan' as well as another great item called 'Turn Off The Version' also by the mysterious Steef. Fortunately Jonathan was able to put me in touch with Steef who turns out to be Frenchman Frédéric Berthet, a name you might know if you bought any records by Troublemakers or Venus Attack Project on Guidance Recordings (late 90's to mid 2000's) or a bit later by Copyshop on Black Jack records or Bear Funk. DJ Steef is his edit/bootleg guise, an ongoing project which sees the man revisiting Pop Music from the last 50 years or so. Killer slo mo, balearo, Folk'ish, hippy house for your pagan dancing circle... watch this item blow up... Thank you so much
Frédéric.

i dont know. when it comes to this stuff, i try really hard to be a glass half full kinda guy, but you just cant F with the original. plus its pitched up and my ears wont allow me to ignor it. good try though. LW is in full effect though and the Delerious Influence mix tickles my nipple.

JM - you know i was just being a cheeky sod :)

Szandor - yeah i know what you mean, I do, I didn't mind the pitched up thing myself, but yeah it's not the original which is amazing. Frédéric's take on it has that French flair for Pop, which was definitely in evidence in the French Touch scene, it's not the raw kind of dub thing Andrew Allsgood might do, anyway i stuck it up cos i dig it... i like the open response though...
