R.I.P Loleatta Holloway (The voice of House & Disco Music)

From L to R: Jocelyn Brown, Derrick Carter, Loleatta Holloway

Chicago Native Loleatta Holloway (November 5, 1946 – March 21, 2011) was an American Gospel, Soul, Disco, Dance & House music singer, mainly known for her songs "Hit and Run" and "Love Sensation" both of which have been sampled extensively.

The most recognizable sample can be heard on Markey Mark & the Funky Bunch's 90's pop hit "Good Vibrations" & Black Box's #1 UK hit "Ride On Time" however, she was uncredited for her vocals. Holloway successfully sued the group, which lead to an undisclosed court settlement in Her favor.
Some say she may be the most sampled artist in Dance Music.

Here are a few favorites:


Holloway began singing gospel with her mother in the Holloway Community Singers and recorded with Albertina Walker in the Caravans gospel group. Holloway was also a cast member of the Chicago troupe of Don't Bother Me, I Can't Cope. Around this time, she met her future producer, manager, and husband Floyd Smith, and recorded "Rainbow ’71" in 1971, a Curtis Mayfield song that Gene Chandler had recorded in 1963. It was initially released on the tiny Apache label, but shortly thereafter, it got picked up for national distribution by Galaxy Records.[1]

In the early 1970s, Holloway signed a recording contract with the Atlanta-based soul music label Aware, part of the General Recording Corporation (GRC), owned by Michael Thevis. Holloway recorded two albums for the label, both of them produced by Floyd Smith—Loleatta (1973) and Cry to Me (1975). Holloway later married Smith. Her first single from the second album, the ballad "Cry to Me" rose to #10 Billboard R&B and #68 on the Hot 100, but before the label could really establish Holloway, it went out of business.

Top Philadelphia arranger and producer Norman Harris quickly signed Holloway in 1976 for his new label, Gold Mind, a subsidiary of New York's Salsoul Records. The first release from the album Loleatta was another Sam Dees ballad, "Worn-Out Broken Heart," which reached #25 R&B, but the B-side, "Dreaming," climbed to #72 on the pop chart and launched her as a disco act. She contributed vocals to "Re-Light My Fire" for Dan Hartman, who then wrote and produced the title track of her fourth and final album for Gold Mind, "Love Sensation" (1980). Eighteen songs of hers charted on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart, including four #1s. However, it was a ballad that proved to be another big R&B hit for her. "Only You" was written and produced by Bunny Sigler, who also sang with Holloway on the track, and it reached #11 in 1978.

In the early 1980s, she had another dance hit with "Crash Goes Love" (#5 on the U.S. Dance chart, #86 on the US R&B Chart). She also recorded one single, "So Sweet," for the fledgling house-music label DJ International Records. In the late 1980s, her vocals from "Love Sensation" were used in the UK #1 hit "Ride on Time" by Black Box.[2] Holloway, however, was uncredited for her vocals,[3] and both Holloway and her attorneys successfully sued the group, which lead to an undisclosed court settlement in Holloway's favor. In 1992, she also had a hit with dance band Cappella. There she appeared billed as Cappella featuring Lolleatta Holloway on the single "Take Me Away" (UK #25). Holloway's fortunes dramatically improved, however, when she had her first US #1 hit when Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch featured her vocals in the chart-topping "Good Vibrations" (1991). Holloway also performed with Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch to promote the single, and she received full vocal credit and a share of the royalties.

More recent dance chart entries include "What Goes around Comes Around" (credited to GTS featuring Loleatta Holloway) in 2000, and "Relight My Fire" (credited to Martin featuring Loleatta Holloway), which hit #5 in 2003. While not a single, "Like a Prayer", a Madonna cover, was a track on the Madonna tribute album Virgin Voices. "Love Sensation ’06," peaked at #22 in the Dutch Top 40,[4] and reached #37 on the UK Singles Chart as well as #49 in Australia.

Holloway died on March 21, 2011 after suffering from heart failure. She was 64 years old.[5]

Björk Unveils Live Residency

The innovative Icelandic icon unveils her new music and multimedia residency at Manchester International Festival

This summer, Björk introduces Biophilia, an extraordinary immersive project and her most ambitious work to date. The multi-media endeavour encompasses her music, installations and live shows, and celebrating the use of modern technology by utilising the internet. The project aims to explore ideas like how sound works, the infinite expanse of the universe, from planetary systems to atomic structures.

The world premiere of Björk's Biophilia live show will be held at Manchester International Festival for a three-week residency - across six intimate shows in the Campfield Market Hall for audiences of 1800, as her first UK dates in over three years. For these six special shows, Björk will be performing new tracks from the forthcoming Biophilia studio album as well as with a small group of unique musical collaborators. The show will feature a range of specially conceived and crafted instruments, among them a bespoke digitally-controlled pipe organ; a 30 foot pendulum that harnesses the earth’s gravitational pull to create musical patterns - creating a unique bridge between the ancient and the modern; a bespoke gamelan-celeste hybrid; and a one-off extraordinary pin barrel harp.

In a special collaboration with MIF, the Biophilia live show will travel to major cities around the world following the Manchester premiere. MIF will also be working with young people in Manchester to explore the musicological, scientific and technological ideas behind the project. In a series of educational workshops schoolchildren will be given the unique opportunity to experience the world of Biophilia first hand, and to immerse themselves in the endlessly rich and inspiring place where cutting edge technology, music and nature meet.

Behind the scenes at Vocalo

Thom Yorke does a surprise DJ set at Low End Theory

By 2 p.m. Wednesday the secret was out. Thom Yorke, the lead singer of Radiohead, was allegedly playing Low End Theory in Lincoln Heights. Maybe. After all, you can’t really predict the behavior of someone like the mercurial Yorke, you can only hope to be in the right place when it boomerangs in your direction.

By sunset the line had already started to stretch around Broadway. Twitter rumors and half-baked hypotheses clogged the Internet, but no one would give a confirmation. Nearly 20 years into his career, the rock star has long since reached the rarefied plateau typically only inhabited by the most famous and feted. He’s like an Anglo analogue to Prince — elfin, erratic and affected by a quintessentially British melancholia. And if you hear a rumor that he’s playing a secret show, you go, fully cognizant that the show may not materialize.

At 10 p.m. it was all off. Yorke had had second thoughts, a decision that triggered an immediate mood shift from collective euphoria to “Christmas has just been canceled.” Several left and were immediately replaced by an influx of others undeterred by the latest intelligence. Radiohead doesn’t have casual fans, they have rabid cultists, and most were unwilling to believe that Yorke wouldn’t come through. It made too much sense. They’d have readily accepted that he was going to ride in on a black swan while accompanied by a Bollywood string orchestra and Flea before believing that he’d let them down.

Indeed, the Oxfordshire native has practically become a semi-permanent Southern California resident — partially repudiating “Fake Plastic Trees” while avowing his love for the mutant bass and eccentric raps roaring out of the Airliner every Wednesday. He’s collaborated with the club’s most famed emissary, Flying Lotus, shouted out Samiyam and Ras G, and even allowed the LET’s trademark disembodied beats to seep onto the latest Radiohead album. Other than rocking a Low End T-shirt on Sunset Boulevard, Yorke had done everything possible to endorse the beat music hub except actually show his face. But by a quarter past 11, he’d obliterated that last obstacle.

Who knows exactly what changed Yorke’s mind? I was told that Lotus had texted him photos of the pandemonium, which subsequently swayed him back on track. Then again, I’d be just as apt to believe it was a visit from an ancient and obscure German god of dance. That would explain the Kraftwerk and Modeselektor he spun during his DJ set.

No one had a clue what to expect from the enigmatic frontman. Judging from the rapturous response he received upon taking the stage, he could’ve very well played Teutonic forest chants based on Grimm Brothers fairy tales and the crowd would have called hailed it as genius.

“We have a very special guest tonight … act like he’s one of us. He is one of us,” said Daddy Kev, the Low End Theory co-founder.

Shrieks (male and female.) Clouds of smoke. A girl in front of me texted to a friend: “I’m looking at Thom Yorke….ahhhhhhhh.” Murmurs all saying the same thing: I can’t believe this is happening. But it was. Despite an initially cool reserve, Yorke soon got down and dirty, unleashing a sweaty funk that spanned house, minimal techno, dubstep, Afro-beat, and hip-hop. Jaylib bled into Burial. Major Lazer slurred into smooth house. Modeselektor merged with Fela Kuti’s “Zombie,” into krautrock. The lights dimmed and the crowd kept bouncing. A robot remix of M.O.P. and Busta Rhymes’ “Ante Up,” passed the pipe to Madvillain’s “America’s Most Blunted” — Yorke’s notoriously eclectic tastes distilled into an hourlong dance party.

If it were another DJ spinning, it inevitably would’ve been just another impressive performance. But context always counts, and with each transition the intensity continued to ratchet — the dance floor dissolving into a blur of bobbing heads and waving arms. Ditching his original diffidence, the sprightly Yorke began controlling the crowd, setting rubber-limbed moves and fist-pumps to each build and release of the beat. Everyone knew about Yorke’s seraphic wail and preternatural songwriting ability, but few knew that he could DJ this well.

In the background, Flying Lotus and Gaslamp Killer played hype men, keeping the crowd live while alternately smiling and marveling at one of the most acclaimed musicians of the last 20 years wrecking shop at what was once Los Angeles' best kept secret. It was less a coronation than it was a continuation of the dialogue, the ackowledgement that the epicenter of American electronic music currently erupts every Wednesday night in Lincoln Heights.

After all, it was just last week that Odd Future, the most hotly tipped young group in America, did an impromptu and dynamic performance. And last night, Yorke somehow managed to one-up them, with a blistering workout that could’ve detonated any club from L.A. to Latvia. Deftly slipping past the crush of bodies rushing to swarm him on his depature, Yorke disappeared as quickly as he entered. Watching the madness slowly dissipate, the Gaslamp Killer aptly summed the night up: "Wow. Did that really happen? Did that really just happen?"

Friday Feature DJ Shred One


Born and raised in Los Angeles, Sheila Red aka Shred One was constantly surrounded and heavily influenced by music at a very young age as she tagged along with her vinyl collecting brothers and cousins. She moved to Brooklyn, NY in '98 where she began collecting her own records and fell in love with the art of deejaying, as well as learning the music industry game working at Rawkus Records and Blacksmith Management. She began spinning out when she moved back to Los Angeles in 2004 and rocked parties like the infamous Root Down, Soul Sessions, and Funkmosphere. She has also toured with a unique 3x4 set across the west coast w/ her crew RRS FEED (www.therrsfeedsound.com). Now residing in Chicago, she has since played alongside cutting edge artists such as Daz-i-Kue, Dam Funk, 45 King, Talib Kweli, Exile, DJ Spinna, DJ Jazzy Jeff & more. You can find her spinning boogie & modern funk @ her monthly residency MAXX TRAXX @ The Whistler.

FACT mix 225: Tevo Howard

FACT mix 225: Tevo Howard

FACT mix 225 - Tevo Howard by factmag

FACT mix 225 comes from one of underground house music’s most serious emerging talents: Tevo Howard.

We say “emerging”, but Howard has been spinning records since 1987, when he’d barely hit puberty. Growing up in Chicago at that time, it was perhaps inevitable that he’d catch the house bug; but his interest in music went beyond that, and he would later study music and bass guitar at college (this would be the first of several degrees in different subjects embarked upon by the academically gifted, but eternally restless, artist).

In 2006 Howard took time out from university to build his own studio, Beautiful Granville Studios, and by his own estimation that’s when his real career began in earnest. In 2008 he began putting out records via his in-house Beautiful Granville imprint, kicking off with a 12″ from his bro Rick ‘Poppa’ Howard but concentrating largely on his own productions. Dedicated fans of Chi-town dance music quickly picked up on Howard’s striking tracks, which combine raw dancefloor jacking with uncommon depth and musicality.

The Rush Hour-released ‘Move’ and below-radar club smash ‘Without Me’ introduced Howard to a larger audience, and in 2010 the latter track was relicensed by Rebirth for a vocal version featuring Tracey Thorn. Rush Hour, meanwhile, put together a 2×12″ doublepack of sumptuous analogue productions from Granville HQ, Crystal Republic,which for us is this producer’s most formidable statement to date. A new album, his debut proper, is set to follow on Rush Hour later this year.

Most recently Howard has entered the Buzzin’ Fly fold, with the release of ‘The Age of Compassion’. He’ll be appearing at Buzzin’ Fly’s Spring Party at Cable in London on Saturday 5 March, performing separate DJ and live sets, alongside Ben Watt, Chris Woodward, Marcus Worgull and Prins Thomas. More information on that night here.

To herald his visit to London, our man has handed us a rollicking mix of cask-matured house classics, recorded live in Jerusalem earlier this month. You need only look at the (rather sketchy) tracklist below to know what pleasures await you: this is the warm, wild and authentic sound of Chicago, and it feels more vital than ever.
