Gold N Delicious / Les Hemstock

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

I've been bugging Les for a few years now and he has finally had the time to rip and upload some of his old sets from Gold n Delicious. I've been bugging him to release his Gold n Delicious - Ascension track that Jules hammered in 1998 which I've loved since hearing it. He said he is planning on releasing and remixing it at some point and possibly the vocal version that is on his soundcloud page.

 

Les has been uploading them set rips here : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvAYCTzb1KSGESeNYZfL1uQ

Les' personal Facebook page that he puts some of his current DJ and production bits on https://www.facebook.com/nothingbutmirage

Brand new Gold n Delicious facebook page - worth following https://www.facebook.com/Gold-n-Delicious-1860311547347556/

 

hope this is of interest and for those that don't know Les is behind the Jive Bunny Master mix series (he is a legend!)

Wow, this is a blast from the past! I remember hearing this tune on Jules show back in the day. I kept missing the track ID so I even sent a tape into Radio 1 and someone kindly rung me up to give me the name.

 

It was the first record on vinyl I ever owned as it was only available on vinyl and no digital formats. After this I soon got some decks and got into mixing.

 

Would be great if this got a re-release and some remixes and came out in digital format. I remember emailing Les about this years later and sure he said something about it didn't get sample clearance so never got a proper release.

 

EDIT - Found the email in my gmail. This was in 2010.

 

his is Les Hemstock. Thank you for your email and interest in my work.
 
The GnD tune was never released as EMI blocked it due to copyright issues in the composition therefore it cannot be sold online at this time. In the near future I plan to remix and release the tune so you will hopefully find it readily available very soon!
 
Thanks again for the enquiry, all the best

Quite why it needs any new remixes is beyond me. It was quite obvious at the time, recreated sample from an Enya track that it never got cleared as Serious never released the Lange Remix. 

 

Send me a PM mate.

:huh:

 

As for the Lange remix..... I own it digitally... 

 

 

 

 

I meant as In it didn't get a commercial release due to the sample clearance . I have a rip of the Club Class Seventeen CD that someone did for me so have a good copy of the original but as far as I know the Lange mix was only promoed by Serious on acetate. Do you have a copy on CD Jason?

I absolutely couldn't remember what Ascension sounded like.  I usually have a good musical memory so had to look it up: youtube.

 

Ascension never did it for me though I am intrigued to listen to the sets you have linked WAP.  A quick scan from the first one had Darey's remix of Blockster - Grooveline which is one of my favorite from the era.  Thanks for sharing.
