Listen: Ska Train / The Beatmasters

Even after the ska revival, the one in the late 70′s to be exact, the occasional act would do an admittedly modern, but usually pretty great version of a classic. Or write one that sounded like a cover from old.

‘Ska Train’ comes to mind. Not shying away from The Beatmasters’ then curent pop/acid house/dancey techno success, they issued this as a B side. Along with Longsy D’s House Sound’s, it remains a favorite.

Listen: This Is Ska (Skacid Mix) / Longsy D’s House Sound LongsyD.mp3

I felt one of those late 80′s / early 90′s acid house moments coming on over the past weekend, so pulled out a few that were my staples in the day. No one ever mentions it, but ska had yet another revival of sorts during the E craze. Remember The Beatmasters’ ‘Ska Train’ or Rebel MC’s ‘Street Tuff’? I must post those soon.

The more or maybe most hardcore acid/ska floor filler,as the natives like to say, was definitely Longsy D’s House Sound ‘This Is Ska’. Fuck, it even charted. Yes, I recall riding around London with Crowley, Radio 1 beaming this down the airwaves and out of the dashboard, Friday, dinnertime traffic jam, Soho, looking for a place to park along Dean Street en route to Grauchos. If only we could turn back the clock.
