Description

Farley Silvester - Jam Down Beat Down

Manchester’s Paper Recordings have teamed up with Acid House survivors Terry Farley and Stretch Silvester for their first release on the label “Jam Down Beat Down”.

Terry has helped define modern UK dance music. In the 80s through his involvement with Boys Own and bands like the Happy Mondays. In the 90s pioneering a tougher garage sound on JBO with Pete Heller. And in the 00s with Faith, a shining beacon for proper house music.
Stretch Silvester has remixed acts like Pulp & St. Etienne, featured on Coca Cola ad campaigns, composed the music for Bjorn Borg’s London fashion show and continues to run his Bring Back The Future record label.

Together they are Farley Silvester!

Jam Down Beat Down has got the trademark Farley sound of floor heavy main room beats, rolling bass, congas and garage stabs. It’s built around a reggae sample that gives the track an otherworldly feel as it floats in and out with dubbed out effects. There’s a build to the drop before things really take off in the second half!

“Paper is a great fit for us because they understand the draw of the blue lights coming off Ms Vasquez glitter ball as the queens stamp and the ball kids runway. They understand the ultimate HOUSE end game which we have both always aimed for …one day…one day.” - Terry Farley

Reviews

JUNO Review - 25/10/2012
"This is the sort of top drawer release you may have found on the Manchester imprint in its early '90s heyday. Written and produced by veterans Terry Farley and Stretch Silvester, "Jam Down Beat Down" has echoes of both classic Paper releases (particularly Salt City Orchestra's "The Book") and Farley's vintage Junior Boys Own-era work (think Fire Island or Roach Motel). It also boasts a choice vocal sample (pinched from a well loved reggae classic) and excellent, conga-laden percussion. The dub, in particular, is excellent."
