New discovery? Unreleased Slammin Vinyl Track

Post by dj jedi » Sat Jun 13, 2015 12:55 pm

No idea if this has been mentioned before but I did a search and couldn't find anything on it. I found this as an Octamed MOD file on an old Amiga CD. No idea if it is a demo or unreleased remix, but I've never heard of it before so thought I'd share it on here. It's fairly similar to the original but there are some differences. Recorded from Octamed on my Amiga 4000.

Nice :)
Are you able to up the mod file - might try and 'stereo' it up a bit.

I would have a guess at saying this was a version that was made along the way (work in progress) until it was completed. Sounds too similar to the released version to be a remix.

Maybe GYR8 could shed some light on it?

After tinkering with the file, I've saved out some of the drum edits.
Got decent samples for most of the other parts.
Really need the female acapella - anyone have it??
Might be able to make a semi decent sounding remake/re-edit :)

Cool, even if it was just a "hi-def" version similar to the original that would be a cool thing to have, love most of the Slammin Vinyl tunes but they do sound a bit crusty when mixed in with higher quality stuff (especially as production had improved so much by 93/94)

i found this on youtube last night after listening to this and its sounds like a cleaning up version of this or they swapped the channels round to get rid of the channel swapping effect might be wrong tho

That's the one.
Found the mods here:

They load a bit weirdly in Renoise, but there is some 'stereo' stuff going on to make it sound like it does on that video.

Got most samples now aside from a couple of the ragga-ish vox, but will see what I can get done.

Quick demo of what I've knocked up so far (it may change a bit before it's finished).
Eq etc isn't finalised either.

Started very close to the one above, but then.... went off on one a bit :)
