Forgotten Treasure: Black Science Orchestra “New Jersey Deep” (1994)
File under: Absolutely timeless classics! This one brings tears to all the real house heads I know, and even those who hate on house music can’t deny the beauty of this almost 20 year old record.
Although there were a few people involved in this project, the main man behind Black Science Orchestra was Ashley Beedle who used the BSO moniker to release tracks sampled and inspired from rare groove & soul records. I used to have a reissue copy of this a few years ago (with a cool edit from Swag I think) but I’m glad I forked out a 20$ to buy an original pressing of this.
There is just something about strings in house music that just gets me. Stuff like Pepe Bradock’s “Deep Burnt”… In this case these strings are more “synthy” taken from 1976’s “Funkanova”. Such a beautiful piece of intelligent dancefloor music!
