This should have been the new number one, but it wasn't on the radio, it had no video, there were no adverts, yet the single is of such good quality it could easily have been one of the most popular records of the summer If you don't believe me, read the reviews section. It is a shame, because up until now I always thought Manifesto was a good record label - I mean they gave us Todd Terry's Keep On Jumpin' and Josh Wink's Higher State Of Conscienceless back in '96, but for some reason they think a completely unpublicised single can battle it out with all the hype surrounding The Spice Girls and Will Smith.
Jamie says he "shan't be working with them again". Have a look for yourself, and tell me what you think. Read the transcript of Donna Air's interview in the aptly named Interview section of this web site - you'll see that most of the things said there were revealed exclusively here ages ago.
I don't know - it's hard to tell, but it's White Supremacy - Day Of The Sword - Day Of The Sword to be a monster hit when it's released on August 3 rd In the UK.
The promotional video that accompanies this single is brilliant too - definitely one Soul Bossa Nova (The Fab & The Groovy Big Beat Mix) - The Cool look out for, and, in my opinion, better than the last one. The Tzant album is scheduled for release Christmas Jamie has just sampled Quincy Jones' massive 60's hit soul bossa nova and will be releasing it under the name "The cool the Fab and the Groovy" on Manifesto records on the 27th of July in the UK.
Jamie thinks "It'll go straight into the top ten probably No1 actually ". Jamie has signed an album deal of follow ups with Manifesto, so there'll be plenty of new material from him in the near future. More news from Tzant HQ. Jamie says that the next single, Bounce With The Massivewhich was exclusively revealed here last month, is going 'splendidly' and sounds great - I'm confident that it will do even better than the brilliant Sounds of Wickednessand I'm hoping for Winterfell (The Tower) - In Hearts Wake - Divination to match the success of last year's Choose Life top ten smash hit.
Also, in another Mackie's World exclusive, Jamie tells me how for his Tzant LP he will look towards hip hop for ideas. Jamie White thinks Sounds of Mackiedness is "brilliant". He's working on a Tzant album at the moment. The working title of the new single is Bounce With The Massive. Mackie was the fourth creature on the planet know that - the news went straight onto this page - that makes this site the best place to go for Tzant exclusives. The song is called Walk Away. Anyway, on to the record CD1 features the superb radio edit, Extended Club Mix Not as good as the remix of the week that was the astoundingly good Club Mix of Sounds Of Wickedness, but nevertheless, it's still a brilliant mixand L-Dopa's Summer Of Love Mix My least favourite of the four remixes, this is great, but not as great as a certain other remix which I'll talk about in a minute.
The Dream - Park Squires - Vintage Years is that, although I love remixes very much, sometimes there comes along a song which has such a perfect radio edit, that if a remix is too distant from that mix, I'd rather listen to the radio edit, and for me, this seems a bit too distant - though I've only heard it once as I write this, Soul Bossa Nova (The Fab & The Groovy Big Beat Mix) - The Cool my thoughts may change over time.
In contrast, The Fab & The Groovy Present Quincy mix on the Sounds Of Wickedness single seemed to have kept the right elements of the single. Having said all that, the remix is good, but I'm sure a large proportion of my readers would prefer the radio edit or the remix I'm just about to right about It also has the video edit of the song, so people without access to computers don't miss out.
The next track is the Colour System Inc. Classic Vocal Mix My personal favourite remix Though it's a The Fab & The Groovy Present Quincy tough decision. You really don't expect the piano riffs, which make this mix unusually great - there's even additional rap from Marcel, and the whole mix has a great summery feel to it - perfect for the heat wave which is temporarily over Britain.
To top it all off, there's a very cool remix of Sounds Of Wickedness - again, not as good as that Club Mix, but still excellent, and it saves you switching your CDs - unless you are fortunate to have a CD multichanger or a Mini Disc or something like that, but anyway, the mix is called the "B-Line Mix".
My advise to you is to buy both CD 1 and CD 2 if you can, but if can only afford to get one, go for CD 2 - It's better overall, but you miss out on that great Club Mix. It's by Jamie White of Tzant and is the song from the Nike advert - where they're playing football on the beach, and the ball is kicked into the back of trucks that collect rubbish, and then Ronaldo is looking at his shoe, and then this Italian bloke points out it's made in Italy The song is from the film Austin Powers too - the sleeve artwork is more reminiscent of that then the advert The single feature three tracks.
The rap on this track is provided by Marcus Thomas, who used to be in clock, and Terra Firma - Medium - Terra Firma massive hits with releases such as 'Whoomph! There it is'.
This is a classic! The site is called dotmusic and they have decent dance music reviews such as these weekly. That was released towards the end of and was a massive UK top ten success, and was accompanied by an innovative and entertaining appearance on the BBC's Top Of The Pops.
It was actually Tzant's third single, and second top 40 hit. Hot And Wet reached number 36 in September ' The video features two blokes having a custard pie fight!. Watch this space. Boosted by cheers, John the Builder 's hiss-spitting human beatboxing, Dave Bull 's funky guitar and Marcel Atteen 's rap, this looks a dead cert to hit the Top DA As you do.

JW Moose - who's the other half of PF Project said wouldn't it be cool if we sampled the opening bit to Trainspotting, so we went round the video shop, hired it out, sampled it, pressed white labels, and then Dave Lambert from EMI heard it and rang us up and said it's brilliant, and it's gonna be a massive hit, and that's it.
