Jam Nation

Assembled during the 1992 RealWorld Recording Week taping frenzy -- seven days, 75 international artists and producers -- Jam Nation gave dance remix wizards Mark Rutherford and John (Sugar J) Gosling access to a bewildering array of existing tracks plus countless studio walk-ins. The crash-and-burn deadline-pressure results in some nod-off noodling along with a fair number of stunners, like "She Moved Through the Fair," which fixes Caroline Lavelle's chilly Celtic vocals above a boppy sequenced bassline; Ayub Ogada waxing honey-sweet, refusing to surrender to the drum machine on the deceptively titled "Sleeping": and the Zapruder-esque "Harmonix," which turns Jane Siberry into a slo-mo bullet aimed at boomerang spatial geometry.
