Music Street

by Noel Williams

Music Street 04:56


The final release looking at the music of Noel Williams’ solo recordings, reaches an apex, with Music Street. Electro as he would do it, with hooks and touches of an ear for pop, with added bass and swing, giving it that boogie.

Written with his wife and partner, Betty Wright, this release appeared in 1983 on his Tashamba label – a spin off from Konduko – and some three years before her own, “pop” version was released.

Music Street pulses, a story of Downtown life in song, with snap hats and programmed bass highlighting the shift from the Ex-tras “band” sound to a pure studio focus. Vocal and instrumental are a DX soundclash, as vocoder hits the Boogaloo beat.

The final Discomix moves close to the source, welcoming Philadelphia’s Universal Cave collective of Brian Cassidy, Shawn Ryan and Ryan Todd to step up State side. The collective, party and label have been releasing cassettes, CDRs and 7” edits since 2012, featuring the in-house’s own, as well as the likes of The Beat Broker, Jaz and DJ Duckcomb.
