It’s been a while since I did anything from this series. To make up for it, a couple of tracks from singles from Bassomatic (aka William Orbit) from 1990/1991.

I never covered Bassomatic under the letter B. The dodgy 80s style record covers always put me off. Bassomatic (sometimes written as Bass-O-Matic) were a British band that made house music in the 1990s. A project of William Orbit (founder of Guerilla Records), the band included vocalist Sharon Musgrave and rapper MC Inna Onestep amongst others. Their first album was 1990’s Set the Controls for the Heart of the Bass, the title track originating as Pink Floyd’s “Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun”. A subsequent album, Science and Melody, was released in 1991. Their biggest hit single was “Fascinating Rhythm” in 1990, which reached No.9 in the UK Singles Chart.
