Lennie De Ice – We Are i.e.

For some reason I haven’t yet posted any hardcore. Here’s one of the first crop of that peculiarly British genre, a turbo-foot dad dancing classic from one hit wonder Lennie De Ice.

It has a bit of a reggae bassline, it has an amen break, it has a hip hop sample saying let me hear you scream – and of course that ‘We are III EEEE’ vocal – bonus points to anyone who can identify the source of that one.

I remember I first had it on a Joey Deacon tape. Not Joey Deacon the famous spastic, this was another Joey Deacon, who I think was the resident at the Ayr Pavilion, and maybe later Hanger 13 which was the same place I think. I remember the mixing was poor, even by the very low standards of 1992, but it had some great tunes on it.

Listening to it on its own, I realise that it works much better as a tool, ie to mix other tunes into – it’s a bit basic. And the sound quality of this mp3 is not the best. The vinyl copy I have sounds even worse. Anyway I plan to include it in one of my dad casts soon with other tunes plastered over it, so you’ll see what I mean.
