PROPHETS OF 'DOOM'
The DJ and brother [b]Joey[/b] put their own distinctive slant on [b]Timo Maas[/b]' remix of [b]Azzido Da Bass[/b]' [b]'Dooms Night'[/b]...
The pair are to put their own, distinctive slant onto Timo Maas' remix of 'Dooms Night' by Azzido Da Bass, a record which has been crossing the normally fixed dance music boundaries for over a year. "I've loved it since I first heard it," explained an enthusiastic Norman Jay, fresh from a set on the legendary Terrace at Space last weekend (September 2). "I'd been thinking about doing it for a while, but when it was the biggest record for me at the Notting Hill Carnival, I was convinced."
Originally championed by a cross-section of the techno and breakbeat communities, the track found a new lease of life when the UK Garage community discovered its lurching basslines and infectious rhythm. "It's because it's basic, primal music," commented Jay on the track's continued popularity. "I don't know quite what I'm going to do with it at the moment. We're not going to mess around with the essential parts that make it work so well on the dancefloor. We're going to turn it into a dub reggae house number!"
The track will be re-released through Edel in early October. For more information on Norman Jay and the Good Times Soundsystem, log onto www.normanjay.com.
