Let's dance - no time for romance?

Oooh aah!
It's very rare that I ever post anything that is current (mainly because all the dance music nowadays is absolute tosh), but this little number caught my ear.
Yes, I know it's cheesey and it meanders a long a bit, but that piano break on 1.55 is pure joy.
Are you with me?

Martin Solveig & GTA - Intoxicated
(Original Club Mix)

Are you ready for the awakening?

Another trance stormer this one.
Tinged with some delightful piano.
A trance classic - me thinks!

York - The Awakening
(Quake Remix)

I need a release - happiness!

Just a corking track this one.
Lively as hell with some delicious piano and just a really good hands in the air feel good factor.
I defy you not to have a smile on your face and your foot tapping along to this one.
Great vocals also.
Jeanie Tracy - top vocalist!!

Wand featuring Jeanie Tracy - Happiness
(Club Mix)

Batten down the hatches - this will blow the roof off!

A real trance stormer.
This one is right on the button.
Fierce in every sense!

Rank 1 - Symfo
(Official Sunrise Festival Theme 2009)

Get on the train!

This was always a real banger when played out in clubs.
Granted it takes a while to warm up but then explodes on 2.31 and really takes off.
We like 'em like that!!

Escrima - Train Of Thought
(12" Mix)

The greatest trance track of all time? Quite possibly!!

Now I don't make that statement likely as I've always been a huge fan of trance.
Most notably the type Oakey was playing in the late 90's and not the commercial crap.
This track has it all, a huge build, unbelievable breakdowns, the drum roll builds.
Totally immense.
(Tiesto and Corsten on the mix - Respect!)
If there's a better trance track let me know and I'll probably tell you that you're wrong!!
I know I've posted this before, but I couldn't resist a re-post.
Enjoy, they don't come any better.

Binary Finary - 1999
(Gouryella Remix)

Just another day (in paradise!)

I can't quite believe that I haven't posted this before now.
One of the greatest trance tracks of all time.
This used to be a huge fave of mine (and still is).
When Oakey dropped this the dancefloor erupted.
The track gets more and more intense and then some more.
At 5.30 mins in it gives me goosebumps every-time!

Skip Raiders featuring Jada - Just Another Day
(Perfecto Mix)

Saturday, 1 August 2015

Set your spirit free, it's the only way to be!!

The Spice Girls never sounded so good, but that's probably because it isn't them!
A fantastic re-working - totally love this track.
It's taken me ages to track this down.
Dedicated to Allison and Ed - two special people.

Wildside - 2 Become 1
(F.T. & Company Edit)

Keep the promise!

A really great floaty trance track.
Typical Space Brothers quality.
Love it.

Essence - The Promise
(The Space Brothers Rethink Remix)

Posted twice, cos' it's just great!

I first posted this track back in 2009 and felt it worthy of re-post, as it is so damn good.
I heard it again the other day after not listening to it for ages.
It still touched all the right buttons.
The piano is still spine tingling.
Pure Kevin Saunderson genius!
Huge goosebump moments on 5.17 - one of the great piano breakdown moments!
"Let the music lift you up"

Darlene Lewis - Let The Music (Lift You Up)
(Resse Inner City Club Mix)

In the night life - a-ha, that's where I wanna be!

A house classic and this is definitely the best version.
Quality vocals, classic house rhythm, beautiful piano.
What more could you want?
"In the night life - a-ha, that's where I wanna be!"

Kim English - Nite Life
(The Bump Classic Mix)

Bring it on Girlfriend!

Pretty much loved nearly all the Tin Tin Out remixes.
This is another stomper.
Never thought I'd be posting Billie Piper on the PCC Blog, but hey ho!
A corker I'm sure you'll agree.
Bring it on Girlfriend!

Billie - Girlfriend
(Tin Tin Out Mix)

Back to Terrorize you once again!

Although my clubbing preferences were always very much on the house side compared to the hardcore side.
There were some hardcore tracks which were still amazing.
This was one of them.
A tad cheesey??
Maybe, but also very instant and when that piano bit kicks - total hands in the air time.
This track came at a time back in 1992 that saw people either go down a house music path to the dressed up clubs like Back 2 Basics, Hard Times, Cream, Hacienda or the hardcore scene.
The only clubs which really then catered for an in between to this were places like Bowlers.
It was the end of an era, but the start of another.
Still a great track mind!

Terrorize - It's Just A Feeling

Just a little crush!

Morales at his very best in his a la Frankie mode.
Beautiful classic house music as smooth as you could wish for.
Both mixes are superb.
So good it lifts your soul!

Oh yeah Oldskool baby!!

Old's Cool and always will be.
They even made tracks about it.
Just love this track.
The piano is great the vocal is cool and the track has a lovely laid back vibe.
Loving the Oldskool (as always).

Westbam and Nena - Oldschool, Baby
(Piano Mix)

You're the one that makes by day, makes everything ok!!

Always loved this track.
Both these mixes are great and I can never choose between.
The vocals are really stand out in the Love To Infinity mix, but if anything I just think the LME mix edges it.
It's pretty epic.
Love the lyrics also;
"You're the one that makes by day, makes everything ok"
"What else can I say"

Nootropic - I See Only You
(Lisa Marie Vocal Experience)

Nootropic - I See Only You
(Love To Infinity's Deep Love Mix)

Somewhere out in the metropolis!

Corking track from The Future Sound of London with that ever so familiar piano riff used many times in many tracks.(Taken from Nikita Warren's - I Need You).
The other track called Metropolis was also pretty decent and worthy of a post in months to come.

Metropolis - Hyporeel

Woah, Black Betty bam ba lam!!

Probably not what you'd expect on the PCC site, but if you've ever heard this dropped in a club you know the effect it has on the dancefloor.
Right up there with Nirvana and other great rock tracks which dropped at the right time were awesome.
These were the tracks which made your night.
The ones you'd never forget.
This was the essence of Balearic!

Ram Jam - Black Betty

Feel the rain!

Not quite as instant as "The Phoenix", but all the same another cracking track from God Within aka Scott Hardkiss (R.I.P).
This one is much more mellow, but is a great piece of laid back floaty trance.
Get on it!

God Within - Raincry
(Original Mix)

See the stars!!

A quality piece of Indie Dance.
Always loved this and still do.
Class never fades.
Great remix.

Poppy Factory - Stars
(Flying Touchdown Mix)

Crazy for you!!

This one will split opinion.
I love a bit of cheesy Italo Disco.
Very Hi-NRG, but very catchy.
Probably not one for the purists, but who cares.

Mc Brain - Loving You Forever 
(Extended Mix)

Boys who love girls!!

This is pretty topical with Blur making a bit of a comeback.
A tad on the cheesey side, but always catchy when heard out in a club.
Quite a bit of pilfering going on here with riffs and lyrics pulled from loads of tracks.
See how many you can spot. There's plenty!
Although the mix played out in clubs was the Original Mix check the P.C.P. Classic Piano Mix.
That rocks!!

Pianoman - Blurred
(Original Mix)

(P.C.P. Classic Piano Mix)

Something wrong with Human Nature?

Alright peeps, apologies about the lack of activity recently.
Here we are back with a bang.
Probably slightly more on the indie-dance vibe, than a true club track.
A top track mind.
Oakey/Osbourne on the mix.
I think this also made the Top 40, oops losing my cred posting pop tracks!
"Sometimes people do the strangest things"
"There's something wrong with Human Nature"

For those of you who like piano corkers.
A top track this one.
Different Class!

Papillon - Different World (Everybody)
(Bully Mix)

Children of love!!

Proper deep down and dirty house music.
A top, top track with so much soul and emotion.
Deep house at it's best.
Get on it!

Mario Basanov - We Are Child Of Love
(The Mekanism Mix)

"Feel much better?, Yes I do!"

Keeping on the up tempo piano vibe.
Always loved this one.
Great track and a stomping remix.
"Feel much better, yes I do!"

Brownstone - Grapevyne
(Uno Clio Dub Mix)

There's no way out!!

A delightful bouncy skippy little piano number.
Very enjoyable!
Feel good music from the feel good generation!

Active - No Way Out
(Original Active Mix)

Give me your love (again)!!

Some times tracks are just so good, that you have to post them twice.
This is one of my all time faves.
A bona fide timeless PCC.
Still sends shivers down my spine when I hear it.
From start to finish this track totally captivates.
Those were the days.

Part-E - Give Me Your Love
(Piano Mix)

Oooh feel the underground!!

Love this; top class, deep house.
I'd go as far as to say this is one of the best house tracks of recent years right up there with Pjanoo
(Yes, that good).
Awesome track!
To remixer Dennis Ferrer.
Let's get underground!!

Nick Curly - Underground
(Dennis Ferrer Remix)

37 years on and still awesome!

A bit before my time this one, but still stands the test of time.
It was in itself way ahead of it's time.
Still sounds awesome 37 years on!
The Ben Liebrand remix is also pretty spanking!
As is the Tom Middleton remix.
Enjoy them all, they all have something very different to offer.

Jeff Wayne - The Eve Of The War
(Long Version)

Jeff Wayne - The Eve Of The War
(The Deepspace Mix - Ben Liebrand)

Jeff Wayne - The Eve Of The War
(Tom Middleton Cosmos Mix)

Now the're flowing!

Another top track.
Been a while since I played this one.
Still sounds tops.
Best thing Candy Flip ever did, but not what made them famous.
C'est La Vie!!

Candy Flip Presents C-Bounce - Keep The Faith
(Saturday Mix)

Redemption? Hell yeah!

Ok I needed something classy to redeem myself following that awful last post.
Here you go a full on Pure Club Classic.
An amazing track this one.

Barbara Pennington - 24 Hours A Day
(Dance Mix)

Possibly the cheesiest PCC ever posted?

Ok, hands up you can shoot me for posting this.
Quite possibly the cheesiest track I've ever posted (and I've posted some real Edam!!).
Oh well (at least I admit).
Tis a bit catchy though!!

Baby O - Ritmo De La Noche
(Extended Club Mix)

Saturday, 4 April 2015

Always something there to remind me...

It's one of those tracks which you know you shouldn't like because it's well, a bit cheesy, but you just can't help but like it.
PCCs can be cheesy, it's ok!!
Plus I always loved Espiritu (more from them later)

Tin Tin Out featuring Espiritu - 
Always (Something There To Remind Me)
(Tooley St. Mix)

Staying on the Balearic vibe!

Just as the last post, here is another Balearic classic.
Just simply beautiful music.
Bring out the sunshine!!

Orchestra JB - Free Spirit

Everybody wants to live together, why can't we live together?

A real Balearic classic.
Always loved this and still do.
True original Balearic vibe.
Classics like this still sound as good today as the day they were released.
Peace out!

Illusion - Why Can't We Live Together
(Original 12" Mix)

To the batmobile!

One of the oldest but still one of the best.
All the way back to 1988.
Classic TT.

The Todd Terry Project - Bango (To The Batmobile)
(Club Bang)

Feel the sunshine!!

I can't believe that I haven't posted this until now.
It was one of those tracks which never went away.
Absolutely massive in every club and played by just about every DJ worth his/her salt back in '94.
I always loved the laughing bit in it and used to laugh along with it, especially when it slows down and the piano continues.
Good old days!!

Subliminal Cuts - Le Voie Le Soleil
(Original Mix)

Join the family!!

Never quite as good as "Lost In Music" IMHO, but corking all the same.
Sounded great in clubs.
Sure is Pure were the hottest remixers at that time back in '93.

Sister Sledge - We Are Family
(Sure Is Pure Remix)

Are you ready to Throw Down?

A top little stomper this one with some ace piano!

Creative Thieves - Throw Down
(Bezerk Mix)
