Exposé - I Specialize In Love
(RR's Vintage Edits @ 1993)

Today I bring you something that's special to my heart,
and it took only a funky 20 years to complete. For an
explanation; I had only the edits on DAT-Tape, so now
I ripped the CD-track (which IMHO is the best on this
1992 Album release), a great cover-version of Sharon
Brown's classic I also own, I must say !

What can I say now is wow I went so quick and
"bam" there it was, I rendered this the first time
on WED 2 a.m. and it really put a smile on my face,
now that it's ready after decades.

Edits/gating as they were - and I used all I made back then,
I did not change them with the computer now, just a lil'
delay from my host on the first edit plus the occational
reverb here and there, to make better blends.

Well what I did I pinned the song now to the grid/ a certain
BPM with my host. I remember the edit from 3:15 to  3:23
min. was very much influenced by an edit by the great
editors Whiz Kids, and the  tape-stop effect in this I sampled
from an edit by  - I seem to remember  - Eric "Moe" Rosenberg.
Edit starting @ 1:42 min. maybe a lil' too "adventurous" to some
for this songs beat, I find it pretty dope, like the unexpected ;-)

Technical freak-info:

Sampler used was my E-mu Emulator III keyboard sampler with
4 MB Ram, which gave you a good 23 sec. stereo sampling time,
software was I think LOGIC for the Atari already. So I programmed
a drum beat, started in the CD and fiddled around with the BPM until
my beat was in sync with the song for one minute, my usual method
in general, for years. Edits were usually (if not played in realtime)
done in LOGIC - and before in C-Lab Creator/Notator - with the
so called Hyper Editor, one of the best inventions in sequencer-
history IMHO, basically a drum editor, but going far beyond.

So with setting the grid to 32th note you could apply 16th note
gating, this worked by setting the Emu's Modwheel to Volume,
then using its MIDI CC-Value in the Hyper Editor, well you had
to figure BPM as closely as possible, otherwise it gives you bad
clicks. Using same method you can apply MIDI-ducking, as you
can hear in the edit starting @3:48, so where I drop an editslice
I lower/or cancel out the volume-level of the original song at that
very same position. You could also animate pitch with this samplers
Aux-Envelope, hear edit 3:04 - 3:06, and also 3:40 - 3:48, say does
the end of the latter sound freakin' "wiggle-waggle" awesome or
what ? I love it, really gives it a twist, hey this came not in a few
seconds, so imagine listen to this edit in a loop for a loooong time
- tweaking parameters, this was / is for the passionate guy.

EA Mix IX - Kabelpeitsche 2.0 (feat. little RR-Edit)

Hi there, my friend Alex aka Audiohead made another
great mix again, containing tracks collected from music-forums

track (starting 25:39 in the mix), this track was already released
on the german electrolabel Dominance Electricity, used with
permission. Download mix via link or embedded one below.

Whodini - Funky Beat
(RASCAL REVENGE's Vintage Edits)

Yesterday I was listening to old music-demos I
transferred digitally from DAT-Tape, inbetween
I stumbled upon this short Whodini-Edit. I can't
say for certain, but this MIDI-Edit I made most
probably 1992, with Atari ST, C-Lab Notator and
my E-mu E III (4MB) Stereo-Sampler, the delay
at the end is also the EIII, these days you had to
render this to a sample, so for making the delay-
repeats/feedback audible you needed a long sample
with digital silence (i.e. -96 dB) at the end, using the
samplers Digital Processing, tzz. I own the US 12"
of this, but for this Edit I sampled the track from my
Whodini - Greatest Hits CD (1990).

This goes not into my list of Editmixes, so just for fun.

The Cover Girls - Still Miss You
(feat. RASCAL REVENGE Edits)

Made one night a few days back, finishing today.
Usual concept of one main edit, two mini-thingies
before that, also some re-arrangement cuts. 
Well that's it, check it out.

Chrissy I-eece - You & Me
(Re-arrangement & Edit by RASCAL REVENGE)

Now this has just some parts I did not like left
out, all stripped down to Radio-Mix length,
more is really not needed. And wow... it has
one (repetitious) edit-break. I made more
(actually better) edits with this, but the edit
that finally appears here was the one best
matching, so I'm happy with it. C'est la vie.

Well, this Advance Copy CD seems to have
some production faults, the main thing is the
tracks are almost completely in mono, but
you can listen to it ;-)

Alxxm - Love's On Fxre
(feat. RASCAL REVENGE's Bangin' Edits)

Here my latest, edits made in one go the night 3 days back, a
little finishing ("levelling/mastering") yesterday.
For artist and title edited see above.

Now I always liked the producers for their own productions, plus
all they did for one of my favorite rappers, Capt. Rock.

Great beats/songs/productions/vocalist(s), what more can you ask
for ? Edits ? Oh Boy, you came to the right place.

Think I made two great edits, ok now the first is nice compared to
the second (bangin' !) edit, which is (me thinking) one of the best
edits I made yet. Don't mean it selfish but I love it, in such moments
I forget I made it, you know !?!

It's just the way this 2. edit hits you when it clocks in.... it has that
umm...bite... call it "edit with an attitude" ;-). 

Ok, now check this out  *o|^_^|o Musik

Laura Enea - Your Personal Touch
(feat. RASCAL REVENGE Edits)

Hi there, to all a happy and healthy year 2013.

So here a piece I made last year in August, with my old PC (RIP).
After 4 months without one I now rendered it with my new computer
 - super...turbo..mega...o-rama ;-)

Evelyn "Champagne" King released this song originally back in 1985,
so this Laura Enea here is a cover version, with drums obviously
sampled from Mantronik-production. Well done, like those hard beats.

It does not contain as much edits as I planned, so now it's just
another "feat. RR Edits" piece, the latter always indicating it being on
the "nice side" of edits *'@-@ such mich    haha.
Check it out !
