Tom Middleton & Mark Pritchard (AKA Global Communication, Reload, Chameleon, Secret Ingredients, Link & E621)

had a short run from 95-99, as the Jedi Knights, releasing new-electro, funk, house, techno, and drum-n-bass

until a remix for Depeche Mode put them on George Lucas' radar resulting in a cease and desist on using the name.

This is a collection of their complete catalog compiling everything from the classic "May the Funk Be With You"

on Clear Records, to their many remixes, to their final unreleased "Return of the Jedis" EP.

Bless the Funk.

not a lot of "science" going on in the mixing. most tracks are in full, did a little tweaking on some of the mixes

and did a slight reordering to make it cleaner

and re-upped

 

hope yall dig it.

may the funk be with you...

This little fucker George Lucas. He is the emperor himself...

 

Thanks for the great collection, Hayhook! Always love to get some funk at night. I should put the New School Science on my turntables again too...

Would love to see Mark and Tom reissue the whole Jedi Knights lot.

Maybe now that Lucas is out of the Star Wars game, they could "get away with it"

This Mix is literally everything they released. Would fit nicely on 2 CDs

(new school science could use a remaster, and the full CD version released on vinyl,

Nutsin needs a proper release, disco magic, and the bomb the bass

mixes were only ever on vinyl, and pretty limited at that)

 

Maybe a bonus of unreleased electro funk jams on the soundcloud...

 

It seems this project could have had a lot of life if only they wouldn't have had to deal with legal BS.

They kicked off the whole new-electro scene and then disappeared like Obi-Wan from beneath his robes at the end of New Hope.

 

I know Mark and Tom have their own rather successful solo gigs now, live on opposite sides of the world,

and who knows, maybe they can't stand each other...

but we're coming up on the Jedi's 20th Anniversary,

(and GC/Reload/Evolution et als 25th Anniversary)

 

One can dream... May the Force be With Them

Nutsin' did get that nice little 7" edit a few years ago, so at least one version was commercially released. As far as another reunion after the Global Communication gigs and Mix CD, unfortunately I believe there was a financial dispute circa the millennium after some investment from third parties tried to save Universal Language, and an almost signing to Island Records.
