Hashim - Al-Naafiysh (The Soul) album

  • Dibei
Is anyone's copy of this new 7" release warped, in a sense that affects the play on side 1? I can hear rumble and thumps in my jukebox when I play this song.
  • Anayaron
Love the comments, label.aside. im still wondering what was the inspiration behind the track. Why would you make this vocal? What does it mean ?
  • Siralune
I could be wrong but I think the Arabic is really derived from the root NFS, nafs, al-nafis. Self, psyche or soul as in the title. Maybe a regional pronunciation with the SH sound or just mispronounced.
  • Fenrikree
Born a Catholic, Jerry Calliste Jr. converted to Islam in 1982 and changed his name to Hashim which means "Decisive" in Arabic. The Soul is a core concept within Islamic thought and philosophy.
  • Уou ll never walk alone
This was one of the tracks that opened doors that were closed to rap music, Also it helped break the Electro sound into the mainstream as clubs and radio stations refused to play rap, because pop and disco were the main agenda.Rap music would get very little air play and you may hear some during the late night shows but not in the day time. The public could not get enough of the bassline and synths, it was a brand new sound, the DJs had no choice but to play this and all hell broke loose.This track not only helped lay the foundations but also set the benchmark for Electro and Electronic music, that could be listenable and danced too by the general public.All music has its defining moment this is once of them.
  • Darkshaper
Ha good referencing 808 man, I was one of those kids in pumas, farah slacks, tacchini top and deerstalker in Berlin, Legends, Precinct 13 etc and this tune was the bomb back in the day. Literally changed our lives.
  • Vaua
LOL could you do the Windmill with no hands though? lmao. Last Christmas we had a party at a family members, I tried to Break and cracked 3 ribs lol. True that, but i was drunk i i didnt even realise until the morning. Spend boxing day morning in A and E at Hospital.
  • Gogal
The Anthem of all Electro Anthems. Saturday afternoons in a club in Manchester city centre, all full of teenagers with Sergio Tacchini,Ellesse,Kappa all on. Like an Electro youth Club it was. But when Al-Naafiysh came on the lights,Strobed and everyone battle breaked. 1983-84 i think. Jerry Calliste Jr was/is Hashim the man responsible for so many dope beats in so many dope tracks..
  • Asher
Undeniably one of the top 3 classic original Electro tracks.I'm at risk of repeating what's already been said below, but the combination of tight beats / chunky bassline / cold synth is undeniable.Even those little scratch effects don't sound cheesy, which is something in itself altogether given the amount of similar tracks that were spoiled by cheesy "scratching". On Al-Naafiysh they do actually add to the backing percussion effect, never gimmicky.100% professional, accurate, intelligent production throughout. Quite simply a track you have to acknowledge as legendary.Also check out Pleasure Boys (Dance Mix). Halfway through the track, there's plenty of opportunity for mixmasters.
  • Chilele
When I was in college (1984-88), I played this song SO MUCH on my JVC boombox that my buddies began calling me "Krishna" - which probably makes little sense, except that they thought this is what was being repeated throughout the song, when in fact, it was "Fiysh Naafiysh Naafiysh..." This is definitely in my top THREE electro songs of all time, alongside "Planet Rock" and "Clear."
  • Mora
Very first ever classic underground Hip Hop tune I ever herd.Around a friends house at his m Mum and Dad's.It was playing on a video recorder with B Boys B-Boying to this track.This was it underground Hip Hop I have found it.Holds a very special memory with me.Peace G Beats.
  • Livina
On Hashim - We're Rocking The Planet the a-side is an edit by Aldo Marin.On this record the labels mention some "Sure Shot Edit". Sounds like if side A was the edit version again, if you ask me. Is there someone who knows for sure?
  • Lilegha
What a classic electro tune a popping tune its one of all time classics
  • Thozius
Its time, Its, Its,Its time, Its, Its,Its time, Its, Its,Its time, Its, Its,Its time, Its, Its,Its time, Its, Its,Its time, Its, Its,Its time, Its, Its,Its time, Its, Its,Its time, Its, Its,Its time, Its, Its,Its time, Its, Its,Its time, Its, Its,Its time, Its, Its,Its time, Its, Its,Its time, Its, Its,Its time, Its, ... must of juggled this record at least a thousand times.
  • Lightseeker
The Vicious Remix is a pretty damn sweet remake
  • Gigafish
let me tell ya about these copies and reissues if your copy is dark blue or light blue its a reissue still pressed in 83-87 the original and best is dark purple and there was not a lot pressed in 83 trust me thanks
  • cyrexoff

  • Macage
hiim a big fan of old electro music ... you have inspired me to make my own musicbut i have a question ... what for synths you used for this song .. i mean the bassline is VERY POWERFULand the pad is so coool....so the bassline are a moog taurus or what .. pls help me :D
  • Malanim
No moog on this. It's just a korg poly 61 and an 808 for drums.
  • Anayalore
thx ... and the drumkid is a roland 606 ?
  • Frey
this is
  • sunrise bird
Wow,what to say about this?This along with Planet Rock,it is one of the cornerstones of ALL electronic music.Even today nearly 30 years after it's release it sounds futuristic and seriously funky.Massive beats and heartbreaking strings collide to create a track so funky and ethereal that as well as just dancing you can just close your eyes and see all sorts of magical images.This tune is as great as any tune from any genre,EVER.
  • Steelraven
I was 11 years old in 1983, and this tune came along and changed my world! Without a doubt it is THE most important dance record EVER made! It still to this very day sounds so fresh that you can drop it into almost any DJ set and it will tear the place up! I was a vinyl addict after I scored a copy of this, and that trip to a record store in London (I lived in deepest Essex) without my parents knowing and getting grounded for a month was so worth it! Still a vinyl addict and all due to that amazing feeling of holding this record and opening the shrinkwrap! If you dont own this, you must buy it NOW!
  • Ichalote
This is without exception THEE badest tune on the planet ever, the most hardest, kicking, brutal electro beats to date, a haunting synth line to kill your loved ones for, a bass line to melt your spine, nothing in the universe gets anywhere near to touching this tune, it is essential to own a copy, this will rock any party and always does......PERIOD. When this drops you find yourself making eye-contact with like minded people and you just nod at each other because you know what's coming.....MAYHEM!!!......God bless you Hashim for gracing us with your genius.....let us all pray that there's an afterlife so we can listen to this forevermore.....Amen.

  • WOGY
Agree with'yall. Gotta say this song ranks #1 in my greatest hip-hop/electro cuts of all time. The incredibly thunderous bass synth showcases how daring and innovative Hashim was, sparkling with one single song hip hop subgenres such as Miami and Electro Bass. Thank God for Discogs, where I can still find copies of this seminal 80's tune. By the way, there's a remix on a Cutting Records compilation that is awesome too. http://www.discogs.com/Various-Cutting-Remixes-Vol-1/release/48937 Cheers from Brazil.
  • Mightsinger
No one can argue that this one single captures the soul of hip hop. I grew up wasting cardboard boxes and tearing holes in the knees of my addidas sweat pants listening to this cut. I get goosebumps whenever I hear the words "It's Tiiiime!" If you want to bring any party back in tempo just break out two of these and start cutting it up. And I have never heard a remix of this jam that has outdone the original.
  • Grillador
With a record of this caliber, remixing it becomes a difficult task. When Aldo Marin approached Tommy Musto and myself with the proposal to remix this classic, I found myself working on my first serious remix project. The track itself was seven years old in 1990. Of the two remixes, one was done in our studio which was Northcott. that is the mix found with the original on the 'B'side. I like this one because Tommy let me explore the possibilities, while he just engineered. The 'A' side cut was done at D&D recording and Aldo sat in on the mix. I think the obvious in itself made the 'A' side remix better because the engineers in D&D knew how to work that room. Listening to that now, 15 years later, I can hear such a love for the U.K. "Summer Of Love" walking through NYC without losing its original flavor. Which is what happened to all the remixes that would follow.
  • Fordrekelv
Having been fortunate enough to remix this record a decade before these Y2K remixes surfaced, I know that remixing a classic that can pass the test of time can be a difficult task. On that note the Y2K remixes are just about five years old. I would say this record is a solid purchase if only for the last remix on the 'B' side. The other two were novelty items and not really anything that even resembles a remix of a classic. But that last one has nice little breaks which maybe lean on the progressive side of things, but stays true to the structure of the original.
  • Katishi
This is one of those records where you have to say: thank God (or indeed Allah) for the re-press! Without a doubt this song is timeless and maybe that is the reason why Rockstar Games used it in their game GTA: Vice City. Hashim's Al-Naafiysh (The Soul) was an instant breakers anthem responsible for much worn lino, bald patches and twisted ligaments! Fat beats, ruuude bass synth and mad vocoder, who could resist! Al-Naafiysh's place was instantly assured in the Hip-Hop hall of fame....How many times have you heard those immortal lines "It's Time" and "Just Feel It" cut to oblivion on two decks?
