Fox The Fox 03

Here’s a killer GEM from my vault. The first time I’ve heard this track (the dub remix version) was in May 1985 in my brother’s Jeep. He came back (to Toronto) for the summer after completing his sophomore year at Boston University. One day he came to pick me up after my school was done, and he had this killer dance mix-tape blasting off his Jeep’s system; Precious Little Diamond was the next track; and thank GOD all the track-listing was hand-written on the tape’s cover. I just had to know what and who the track was. Then my brother rushed me to Starsound record store on Young Street ….. went inside … asked Sepe (the owner) to help me find Fox The Fox …. he pulled the last 12-inch out from somewhere. I was just in time, because Precious Little Diamond had been out for quite some time, and almost all existing copies were sold-out everywhere. This remix was produced by Shep Pettibone. Listen to the dub-version first …. oh my god …. gotta LOVE the bassline which starts the track right in your fucking face …. Shep’s signature. I believe it’s a processed bassline preset from one of the Yamaha DX synth series (either DX-1, DX-5, or DX-7) …. which you’ll hear in a lot of Shep’s other remixes between 1984 through 1988, such as George Michael’s Hard Day remix (1987).
