Hashmoder's "STABBING BASSLINE" Stamp Of AprovalOH MY GOD were the first words to come out of my mouth immediately when this track started.  And that was back in 1983.  Combination Mix of Get The Balance Right starts right off the bat with a punchy & crunchy bassline, stabbing your face repeatedly with hot & fat analog synth bassline in 16th-note sequencer-steps.  This track is nice and long with minimal (almost dub-instrusmental) passages, balanced in every way: Bassline intro, music build-up, lyrical verses, vocal choruses, instrumental/dub passages, and a driving energy that grooves all the way to the outro/ending.  After all these years, this track still remains not being stupid but forever  SERIOUS!

Get The Balance Right is ultimate for listening-purposes and dancing your way back to the early New Wave synth-energized 80′s underground dance scene at some geezer’s bass’ment by time-traveling inside a Ford Cortina Mark 5.

In my 30+ years of collecting music, I completely forgot that I had this track in my arsenal of 12″ records.  I do not even remember buying this record at all.  A few days ago I was going through my record collection, looking for another track …but along the way I came upon this Jeopardy 12″.  Thus I reacted with such enthusiasm as if I’d just discovered/heard the track for the very first time.  Perhaps my elder brother was the one who bought it in 1983, no?  I do not know for sure; I do not recall.  Nonetheless, I love the song.  It has been YEARS since I’ve listened to Jeopardy.  The record was very dirty.  I cleaned it up as much as possible, recorded it straight into Protools and did as much mastering to it as I could.  I utilized Waves’ R-EQ4 equalizers, Waves R-CompressorsLexicon Vintage Plate Reverb and Waves L3 ultra-maximizer software/digital plugins …in order to enhance the sonics and widen the stereo-field of Jeopardy (both sides/versions of the record).  Great, timeless track from 1983 when it was first released.  It reached only #2 spot, just under Michael Jackson’s Thriller single being #1 in the top-10 music charts at that time.
