Russ: Or you could go and listen to music that you couldn't hear anywhere else. Paul: Yes. Nowadays some people only want to hear music that they've already heard.
We actively went out to hear music that we'd never heard before. If there was a certain track you wanted to hear, but only one DJ had that track, you had to go to the club where that DJ was playing. That helped drive the whole scene forward. You mentioned The Wildlife EP.
It's a given that Chicago, where house music started, was a big influence on The Hacienda and therefore on yourselves, but on your first two EPs there's a real Detroit influence. Did that come from any particular member of the group, present or past and what particular sounds from Detroit were an inspiration? Paul: Every piece of vinyl that came out of Detroit, whether it was good, bad or indifferent, we probably would have bought.
We had people on side at eastern Bloc who would keep stuff like that aside for us. Obviously Into The Night - K-Klass - The Wildlife E.P. (Vinyl) our sound evolved we brought more vocals in and ended up going more towards the soulful side of it. But, again, that was Hacienda influenced. As what Graeme Park and Mike Pickering evolved, so did we. Paul: We made that siren sound on a Korg Mono Poly.
We'd take little bits of drum loops but we very rarely sampled. Most of it is original programming. Another influence I can hear is the Italian piano house sound. Were there any particular Italian releases that made an impact on you? And who in the group was the piano player, if anyone?
Paul: Carl was the piano player, one of the guys who's left which is why, when we play now, we have to get Davos in to play the tricky bits that we're too crap to play. Anything more than three fingers, ha! There wasn't any one Italian track in particular. If you listen to the two versions of 'Rhythm Is a Mystery', the first one, released on Eastern Bloc is a straight up Detroit techno thing with a freestyle vocal and no song arrangement. That got to number 61 in the UK charts, no promotion.
So, they Into The Night - K-Klass - The Wildlife E.P. (Vinyl) come back and do a more song structured version of it and that went big. We spent a long time structuring it and on the drums, because the thing with the Italian stuff was that the drums were often shit.
We added the Italian piano element, then the saxophone and that, with the vocal, created the hooks. When we made the original we didn't have any idea how to write a song. Did you meet either artist after those releases and get any feedback? Paul: New Order we met a few times. They used to come down and see us in the studio. We worked with Johnny Marr a Into The Night - K-Klass - The Wildlife E.P. (Vinyl), in the Electronic era and so Bernard would be in and out of the studio.
Peter hook has said in more recent years that he really liked our remixes. We had no intention of them being the radio mixes when we did them it's just what the record companies decided, especially the Bobby Brown one.
The most difficult part of Into The Night - K-Klass - The Wildlife E.P. (Vinyl) was where it slows down for the rap. That took two days alone to programme. Russ: We never set out to write a hit record. We only ever tried to write things we like.
Russ: I think we can answer that together. He pulled us aside at ADE about 4 years ago and told us it was the best remix he'd had done on any of his work and that it was one of his favourite tracks of all time.
We thought, well, may as well just retire now! Job done! He gave us a big bear hug and I'm quite small, he nearly crushed me. Paul: It was such a good, strong, emotional vocal from Adeva.
It's such a lovely piece of music, something that to this day we're really proud of. Russ: The one for which we got nominated for a Grammy, Into The Night - K-Klass - The Wildlife E.P. (Vinyl), a Samantha Mumba track, we probably wouldn't have given a second thought for. When Carl and Andy left what skill sets were removed from the band and how did you overcome that?
Paul: Well, Carl was the piano player, but from the remixes we started doing in the mid 90s, things like the Frankie Knuckles remix, the more musical things, we started employing third party keyboard players. So, the keyboards were not much of an issue, the bigger problem was that Andy was our main engineer. He went off to sell Funktion One soundsystems in Dubai. I had to go on a steep learning curve and learn it. Didn't do too bad, I do a lot of ghost producing, mixing, mastering of other people's stuff now.
Can you explain what was your thinking behind choosing the alternate name We Deliver for some of the remix work you undertook with Paul Birchall in the s? Paul: It was simply because K Klass had been pigeonholed as an old school act and so that was an outlet for making music that we really liked. I still find it frustrating now, sending our productions out to record labels and sometimes they won't get noticed, but I'll ghost produce a track for someone else and it'll get signed.
It's a weird old game. Plus that was after Carl and Andy left so it was a good excuse to do something where we could get Paul Birchall properly involved, in the songwriting not just as a session player, give him some of the credit he deserved. Paul: With Mark Bell? A fantastic flight of imagery can conceive such an awesome poem Report Reply.
A fantastic poem to read Rolling in Eden. Thanks for sharing this poem with us. In Eden Thanks for sharing What an incredible, full-throated and yet Into The Night - K-Klass - The Wildlife E.P.
(Vinyl) discreet poem of erotic desire. The middle stanza is such an elegant pivot from the no-holds-barred fantasy of the first stanza to the calm, fulfilling paradise of the close. The poem is both ravenous and generous in its expression of love and desire. God didn't allow women much leeway in Eden.
Think I'd have left that line out. Otherwise a very good poem Report Reply. I love her poetry. She was a recluse during her life time. Her imagination was very expansive. Wild nights and her solitude moments and her imagination of rowing in Eden! It could be a luxurious experience for the poetess. They were stripped of their wealth and businesses. What is the Cabala?
