A. On This Vibe (Original Raw Mix)
B. On This Vibe (P. Scott Sistrum Remix)

Fred Peterkin aka Black Jazz Consortium

note: "Listening to this sublime release from Fred P. as the sun sets after another glorious, blue-sky day, I’m reminded more of the Balearics than Brooklyn. While Fred is one of the linchpins of the resurgent New York house sound, On This Vibe — fittingly, on Esperanza, a Spanish label that has embraced deeper sounds after getting plink plonk minimal out of its system — goes back in time to classics like Sueno Latino’s eponymous hit or the “ambient house” of 808 State for inspiration. Based on a sensuous, chord sequence anchored to tight claps, Fred then proceeds to add plaintive piano keys and what sounds like a vocal sample from an old hardcore record and then repeats to fade. That this process lasts over ten minutes only serves to reinforce the associations with the dreamlike, liquid state that early, U.K. proto deep-house also strived for.

As I think of “Vibe,” I keep imagining how it would fit with other Ibiza classics — and there should be no hang ups about mentioning those two words in that sequence, no matter how corrupted the phrase has been by countless cash-in compilations or brainless reality programs — like Moodswing’s “State of Independence,” “Sueno Latino” and the superlative “Paper Moon” by 51 Days. Patrice Scott’s remix is more metallic and urban. The sensation of lapping waves and ice melting into mojitos as a warm Mediterranean sends the fireflies off course in the dusk that prevailed on the original is noticeably absent. But what Scott lacks in balminess he makes up for with intricate, snaking rhythms and a gloriously effective, building synth riff that offers as much warmth and sensuous release as the original version. Ibiza via Brooklyn back to mainland Spain and out to the rest of the world — who’d have thought the Balearic spirit would be so enduring?" - Little White Earbuds.

  1. Thanks for pirating more recordings and helping destroy the release of music on vinyl.

  2. Greetings. I wanted to let you know that I've added your blog to the Techno/House/Trance/D+B category of my music blogroll/aggregator @ I also added your RSS feed to the master RSS feed, which aggregates content from all the blogs on the list. It can be found here:

    I'm trying to put together the most comprehensive list of music blogs which feature out of print or otherwise unavailable music, as well as those which share podcasts, or sample mp3 files. I've categorized them so that you can easily find exactly what you are looking for.

    If you would like to help me out, you can do so by linking back to my blog. Although it isn't required in order to be listed, I would greatly appreciate it. If you would be willing to mention the blogroll in a post that would be fantastic also. Thanks for all the hard work and time that goes into maintaining this blog, and especially for the fantastic music you share. Take care.


  3. dear anonymous - whoa, thought it was the record labels who tried to "destroy the release of music on vinyl" back in about 1985 with their invention of the CD.
