Complete 92.7 KPTI Playlist (May 2002-April 2004) and More

We have decided to leave our KPTI blog (see below) pretty much the way we last updated it.

Here is our presentation of 92.7 KPTI's playlist, complete with all the recurrents played during the station's two-year stint.  Click on Dance Radio Guide for a sampling of dance radio stations in the country.  See what’s popular on U.S. dance radio by clicking on Dance Radio Megamix.  Check out our review of Bay Area radio stations (including all the mix shows) and read the KPTI postmortem (refer to local radio cemetery).

With unique features like vocal description and key lyrics (where necessary), our list is designed to help you easily identify that song you heard on the radio.  For further confirmation, you can listen to an audio sample on the Internet as well as search for a song's complete lyrics.  Or you can write to us.  We have also included some additional retail information for your one-stop browsing.  While we don't have a search function, we now provide a sort by vocals option along with a list of artist Web sites.

The Internet has made song identification just a few clicks away (this Web page is an example of that).  See Bay Area Radio Airplay for an overview of the latest on-line tools that could make contacting radio stations a thing of the past.

Note that Dance Radio Post began monitoring KPTI in June 2002, roughly one month after it went on the air.  It is conceivable we have not accounted for something played only during that period.  "I'll Fly With You" is counted in both female and male totals.

Singled Out

We estimate 64 percent of the recurrent songs on this playlist were released as domestic CD singles or CD maxi-singles.  If you include import CD singles and 12" vinyl singles, the percentage would be close to 100.  So where do you go to buy these singles?

Tower Records may not have the lowest prices for albums anymore, but no other brick-and-mortar chain can beat its selection, and it is the only major record retailer that still sells CD singles (at reasonable prices to boot).  You can go on-line and buy these records or you can visit the Tower stores in the Bay Area (there's something about the thrill of the hunt).  Of course, anything more than two years old is probably out of stock.  But never assume anything as we found out.

Tower does carry a small selection of 12" vinyl singles at each location; there are other retailers that specialize in vinyl singles.  By the way, Tower claims to offer two million audio samples on its Web site.  Since most albums have at least 10 tracks nowadays, this number suggests they have audio samples for fewer than 200,000 albums.  Is there a music site that provides more samples?

More Shopping Tips

"Got Dance?  (The Singles)" is a compilation CD maxi-single that features eight tracks from the "Got Dance?" double album, including Tim Deluxe's "It Just Won't Do" and Plaything's "Into Space."  Diana Fox's "Where Are You Now" and Fiori's "Take Me Where You Are" are part of a nine-track compilation CD maxi-single titled "Dance Radio Hits Vol. 1."  This maxi-single also includes Lightforce's top 20 club hit "Join Me" and a remix of Fox's "Running on Empty."  If you are interested in Lucas Prata or Natural, check their Web sites first.

A lot of dance tracks are included on compilation albums, which are relatively easier to find.  Your best bets are the compilation series released on the Robbins (robbinsent.com) and UBL (ublrecordings.com) labels.  If you have a specific single in mind, write to us and we’ll do a memory dump and let you know if we came across it anywhere—in a store or on the Net.

Last Resort

When you write to us about a song, try to answer the following questions in your e-mail.  We can’t help you unless you give us something to work with.

  1. Can you recall any lyrics?  Pay attention to the chorus, the bridge, and the first and last words of the song.  Write down everything you remember.  How certain are you of the words?  Someone once asked about “rock the jam,” which we suspect he meant “you got the chance.”
  2. Are the lead vocals female or male?  The same question applies to instrumentals that contain some vocals and/or spoken words.  Does the singer sound like anyone we know?  Does the song remind you of another?
  3. What’s the genre that best describes the song?  Trance, house, dance pop, break, drum ‘n’ bass, tribal, ambient, trip-hop, freestyle, etc.  What instrument stands out the most?  The synthesizer, keyboard, bass, horn, percussion, strings?
  4. What’s the tempo of the song?  Fast or medium.
  5. Is there anything unique or unusual about the song?  As soon as someone referred to “high-pitched scratching,” we knew it was probably “Higher State of Consciousness.”

Artist Web Sites

 

Directory of Artist Web Sites

Dance music has always had more than its share of faceless acts on small labels, one-hit wonders, promotional remixes, and rare imports.  Unfortunately, you cannot depend on radio to provide much information on artists of any genre.  So let your fingers do the clicking and visit these Internet sites while they’re still up and running.  You can expect to find such tidbits as biographies and discographies; some sites offer audio samples, video clips, previews, and free downloads of special mixes.

As a bonus, this directory includes some of the key vocalists on an artist’s records past and present.  Related Web sites refer to a vocalist’s own site or the site of a featured guest or an artist’s former/latest group.  Beware that some sites deliberately masquerade as official artist sites.  Let us know if any dubious sites got past our censors.

Our Two Cents

For what it's worth, this is what we think.

The Best

To make our job easier, we’ve limited our best selections to KPTI "exclusives," songs not heard on other Bay Area radio stations in the past.

  1. Yolanda Adams, "Never Give Up"
    You could call this dance remix of Adams' gospel number a house anthem but for the synthesizer-based music.  With restrained diva vocals--until the rousing climax--it all adds up to a very catchy pop song.  Her record label should have worked this remix at top 40 radio.
  2. Lucas Prata, "Let’s Get It On"
    Yes, the vocal arrangement is from the electrofunk school of Stardust/Daft Punk/Dax Riders/Dance Nation/Dirty Vegas.  Yet this chirpy number still manages to stand out among all the sound-alikes.  You’ve got to hand it to the songwriter for sticking with a title so closely associated with a legendary singer.  Would you write a song and call it "Hound Dog" or "Hey Jude"?
  3. Kate Ryan, "Scream for More"
    Nonsensical lyrics aside, file this one under "Should've Been a Hit."  We would like to hear more from this Belgian singer.
  4. Sash! Featuring Rodriquez, "Ecuador"
    The best thing you can say about KPTI is that they don't shy away from playing instrumentals like this tasty example from German act Sash!, who is not to be confused with Sasha (of Sasha & Darren Emerson) or Sasha Alexander (though they are all Europeans).
  5. Zero, "Bania u Cygana"
    A testosterone-powered Polish song to save us from "diva overload."  As far as we can tell, this Zero is not the same as The Zeros, Zero One, Zero 7, Karl Zero, or Remy Zero.

The Worst

  1. Aquagen, "Hard to Say I’m Sorry"
    Cheesy but not campy enough to be fun, this is definitely not one of Aquagen's better remixes.  If you want to shake your groove thing to a Chicago tune, listen to the classic "The Bomb! (These Sounds Fall Into My Mind)" by Kenny "Dope" Presents The Bucketheads.  To others, the dance remakes of "San Francisco" and "Shimauta" may sound just as cheesy.  They did seem like more of the same electrospeed fluff (hi-NRG meets rave music for the 2000s)--and then they grew on us.
  2. Mad’house, "Like a Prayer"
    This European artist (not the 1980s R&B act Madhouse) is the definition of schlock—a gratuitous remake that sounds like something a cover band would play at a prom or wedding.  Even Kelly Osbourne’s remake of "Papa Don't Preach" is more creative.  Tribute bands are nothing new; it is unusual when the subject is still actively making records.
  3. 1980s freestyle
    As much as we enjoyed some freestyle back in the day, most of it sounds pretty dated now.  Besides, there is no shortage of neo-freestyle music to choose from (Angelina, Jocelyn Enriquez, Rockell, Jossette, Freestylers, just to name a few).
  4. Older versions
    Faced with a song's pack of promotional remixes, KPTI usually plays the best version (the most radio-friendly remix anyway).  But they're playing the "wrong" versions in three instances.  The album version of Gigi D'Agostino’s "I'll Fly With You (L'Amour Toujours)" is slow and plodding compared with the remix that became a minor hit at some top 40 radio stations in 2001.  Interestingly, that remix incorporates elements of "Bla Bla Bla," another track from the same album.  For fans of drum 'n' bass, Puretone's original version of "Addicted to Bass" is probably just fine.  We prefer the Robbie Rivera remix that lives up to the title.  This is one time when his funkatron signature sound makes for a perfect fit.  Although we're not big fans of DJ Tiesto, his remix of BT's "Dreaming" is an improvement over the unremarkable original.
  5. Delerium Featuring Sarah McLachlan, “Silence”
    We actually liked this song when it came out in 2000.  What we don’t understand is why it was in such heavy rotation consistently during the second half of 2002.  The answer may lie on the other coast.  WPYM in Miami, where KPTI borrowed the idea of a “pure dance channel,” declared “Silence” that station’s No. 1 song during its first year of operation.  (Refer to WPYM’s top 93 tracks of 2002 at party931.com/music/top93.html or archive.org)

The Missing

  1. Faithless
  2. Fatboy Slim/Mighty Dub Katz/Beats International
  3. Billie Ray Martin, “Your Loving Arms”
  4. Moby
  5. Sparks, “When Do I Get to Sing ‘My Way’”

As interesting as KPTI’s playlist is, the list of MIAs is striking.  They seem to have drawn a complete blank when it comes to the better part of the 1990s, and they know only freestyle from the 1980s.  Because of its weak signal, KPTI will probably never crack the top 20 in ratings.  And if Bay Area history is any indication, this dance format won’t last very long.  So they might as well make their playlist as inclusive and progressive as possible.  What have they got to lose?  We’ve selected Faithless, Fatboy Slim, and Moby because they’re not your average dance artists.  The other two tracks represent KPTI’s “missing years.”
