Armando

Armando Luis Gallop, geboren am 12.02.1970 in Chicago, hat bereits mit 17 Jahren den Acid-Klassiker „Land of Confusion“ geschrieben und ein Jahr später zusammen mit Mike Dunn das legendäre Label Warehouse Records gegründet, auf dem auch Künstler wie Robert Armani, Ron Trent und DJ Rush veröffentlicht wurden. (+ 1989 das Sublabel Muzique Records)

Anfang der 90er war er überwiegend als DJ tätig und später als A&R Manager beim Label Radikal Fear (gegründet von Felix Da Housecat).
1996 erschien die LP „One World, One Future“, leider verstarb Armando im Dezember ’96 an Leukämie.

Hier eine Auflistung seiner besten Klassiker:


Land of Confusion

Die simple-geniale Bassline ist laut Mike Dunn schlicht und einfach ein Preset-Sound der Roland TB-303.
Der Track sollte ursprünglich „Slave for Love“ heissen.

100% Of Disin‘ You

Die markante Textzeile „I’m gonna diss you some more“ stammt aus einer Live Performance von Loleatta Holloway.
Junior Vasquez hat die Vocals bereits 1987 gesampelt für sein Projekt Ellis-D in dem Song „My Loleatta (Dish Apella)“.

Bruce Forest (Legendärer New Yorker DJ (Better Days) berichtet (1998):

…In 1985, Loleatta Holloway did a rare live performance at Better Days. Rare, because she didn’t do many, and Better Days did very few livedates as well. […] I recorded the gig on reel to reel tape. I edited out all the music, and kept just the spoken vocal, consisting of lots of ‚trash talk‘ and cool sexual innuendo. – For a long time, I used to lay the vocal over various instrumentals, ranging from house tracks, to MFSB’s Love is the Message. The speaking part was in sections and lasted about forty minutes in total. The crowd went NUTS for it, and it became my trademark. Many people asked for a copy, but I promised Loleatta that I wouldn’t ever give it out. However, Shep Pettibone, my friend at the time, did a relief spot for me one night, and helped himself to a copy, against my direct wishes. He gave this copy to Junior Vasquez, who promptly took my idea, laid the vocal over a house track and made a record called ‚My Loleatta.’It was a mild success, and he made a few more. He also actually put the acappella on a 12″ and sold it. I was furious, and so was Loleatta. Too late though. The spoken vocal, copied off Junior’s record has been on dozens of records, and it both makes me feel nostalgic, and pisses me off every time I hear it. Hope this helps. Spread the word if you like.
