This is one of those tracks which I really shouldn't like, but I simply love.
It rips a sample from one of my all time fave tracks "Relight My Fire", but it's catchy as hell and as such has a definite PCC status!!
Do as it say's folks
"Kick up the volume and play it out loud"
Who am I to argue??
Rob Tissera - Kick Up The Volume
(Diva Rhythms Mix)
Another cracking tune, this was one that was around for ages back in '96.
It was one of those tracks that was in every DJ's box and was always played out.
Still sounds great.
Stand up - put your hands up high!!
Love Tribe - Stand Up
(Narcotic Club Mix)

A little MJ sample thrown in for good measure and som corking piano!!
"Do that to me" indeed!!
The Lisa Marie Experience - Do That To Me
(The Lisa Marie Experience Vocal Mix Part 1)

This ones for DJ Wolf e.
Saint Etienne - Sylvie
(Trouser Enthusiasts' Tintinnabulation Mix)
A massive Parky track.
House music at it's very best.
I love everything about this track, from the opening bar to the vocals, the great pianom, the pulsing rhythm.
10 minutes of sheer pleasure.
Simone - Hey Fellas
(Club Vocal Mix)
It's one of my all time faves and really should have featured in my Top 30 fave tracks list, which could maybe do with a refresh.
The whole ambience of this track is sensational.
It just puts me in a different place!
Worth checking the Pete Shelley version also which this is ripped from.
Sined Roza - I Don't Know What It Is
One of the greatest remixes of all time, it still sounds amazing.
This was truly ground breaking and further cemented the legend of Oakey.
Those were exciting times.
I particularly remember it being dropped at Back to Basics in Leeds back in '92 and the roof nearly came off
Take me higher indeed!!
U2 - Even Better Than The Real Thing
(The Perfecto Mix)
Alright, it sounds a bit cheesey now, but it was a major tune back in the day and had an amazing effect on the dancefloor.
When that piano kicks in at 1.42 - you know its a hands in the air moment!!
DJ Professor - Rock Me Steady
(Plus Staples Mix)
Saturday, 6 September 2014
This is pretty epic, topped off with some exquisite vocals.
Immense and intense at the same time!!
The Morrighan - Remember (To The Millennium)
Yeah, I know this is poppy as hell, but I remember hearing Jon of Pleased Wimmin drop it when I was on the floor at Back 2 Basics and it absolutely set the place alight.
It's all about the timing!!
Kylie Minogue - What Do I have To Do
As with pretty much every Trouser Enthusiasts' remix, this is immense.
Those guys certainly know how to re-create bangin' tracks.
This is right on it!!
Just wait till it takes off, feels like the roofs going to go!!
Dannii never sounded so good.
Dannii Minogue - Everything I Wanted
(Trouser Enthusiasts' Golden Delicious Mix)
I wasn't always a big fan of a lot of Sasha's productions as I often felt they were over hyped and failed to live up to the expectations.
Many were tool long and just took too long to kick off, they always felt self indulgent.
This however, is top notch and although over 11 minutes long it is captivating from start to finish.
A definite trance masterclass!!
Get on it!!
Sasha - Xpander

I was never keen on the Sesame Street samples (I think it's Sesame Street but not sure as I always hated that annoying programme).
The track however is just timeless and brings back memories way back when it all began back in '88.
Always loved the piano in this.
Kraze - The Party
Sunday, 17 August 2014
Well if you put together two of clubland's most notorious club promoters (Dave Beer and Charlie Chester), who certainly enjoyed "the Perks" I guess you're bound to get something off the wall.
A really catchy little number which always brought a smile to my face and a chuckle as well.
Perks Of Living Society - Too Damn Free
(P.L.S. Arena Mix)
Bobby D'Ambrosio featuring Michelle Weeks
- Moment Of My Life
(Classic Club Mix)
Saturday, 2 August 2014
Uses the fantastic vocals of Donna Summer to great effect.
This really is a massive pumping stomper!!
Donna Summer - I Will Go With You
(Trouser Enthusiasts Twisted Kiss Mix)
I''m sure you'll recognise them as soon as you hear them.
One of my favourite dance music vocalists.
Cracking little track by the way.
Good remix from Stonebridge also.
Voices Present Individual - Sky High
(Stone and Nick's Club Mix)

Another quality piece of dance music from The Space Brothers.
Everything they touched was pure gold.
Great vocals on this one as well.
Show me love - indeed!!
The Space Brothers - Legacy (Show Me Love)

This is one such track, just a quality old skool house track encompassing everything you need in a track, great vocals, great lyrics, superb piano and a catchy as hell house rhythm.
Happy house music to put a smile on your face.
Red Follies featuring M.J. White - Broken Promises
I know I've posted this before on the blog, but can't seem to find it, so can only presume it was taken down.
Anyway a great excuse to re-post.
I believe that there is a new track which has just come out which rips this off.
In fact I was in the gym the other day when it came on the radio.
It is nowhere near this original classic though, which is just a masterpiece.
Lyrics, vocals and piano are top notch.
Funny, that the youth of today still have to steal our old classics to make music!!
Patti Day - Right Before My Eyes
Saturday, 24 May 2014
It still sounds awesome.
The Rank 1 remix was where it's at, it's like fireworks going off in your head.
Good music never dates.
Cygnus X - Superstring
(Rank 1 Remix)
Sunday, 4 May 2014
Don't they just!!
Totally love this old classic and all the versions posted.
The original is amazing, the Joe Claussell remix is executed beautifully and just adds to and extends the original beautifully, whilst the vocal version is just pure Paradise Garage disco!!
Tracks this good never grow old and in fact seem to get better every time you hear them.
This is pure gold.
Can you believe it is 37 years old!!
This is and always will be an eternal timeless classic.
Ashford & Simpson - Bourgie Bourgie

Totally love this track, absolutely massive.
Again another recent one and testament to the man's quality.
This is as good as anything he ever produced.
Simply stunning house music!!
Viva La Frankie!!!
Frankie Knuckles Presents Director's Cut
featuring Inaya Day - Let's Stay Home
(Director's Cut Club Classic Mix)
Staying on the Frankie vibe and further endorsing my statement that the Great Man maintained his prolific nature of churning out absolute quality all throughout his long and illustrious music career.
This must have been one of the last things he produced before his untimely death.
It's an absolutely tops re-working of the old Donna Summer classic.
Big shout out to Simon for passing this one my way.
Donna Summer - Hot Stuff
(Frankie Knuckles and Eric Kupper As Director's Cut Signature Mix)

Anybody who has ever followed this blog will be aware of my huge admiration for Frankie and the music he both made and remixed, not forgetting his fantastic talents as a DJ.
He always was and always will be one of my all time favourite remixes and from the very early creation of house music in the 86/87, he has been the "One Man" who has consistently remained at the very top for nigh on 3 decades. "One Man" who never let you down!!
My respect cannot reach out strongly enough.
R.I.P. Frankie your music and talents have touched so many people and will never be forgotten.
I've posted many of the tracks he made and remixed on this blog and I post this one in honour of the man who was Mr House Music!! (This one was remixed with Morales)
Frankie "One Man " who changed the world forever.
Chanelle - One Man
As always if there are any tracks which people want re-uploading then please give me a shout and I'l re-up.
This is a quality track, with some big piano (no sorry some Maseeve piano!!), Tops!!
Enjoy Davy boy!!
Rollo Goes Camping Again - Get Off Your High Horse
Friday, 28 March 2014
Well this track certainly is.
It was a mainstay of many of Oakey's sets when he was in his pomp in the late 90's.
It is an awesome, spellbinding track that used to shake you to the bottom of your boots.
Trance had never been so good.
The Sneaker - Scatterbomb
Very much thanks to a superb remix by the legend Frankie K.
A top house music track with some delightful piano.
Can I touch you there? Bit forward innit??
Michael Bolton - Can I Touch You There
(Classic Club Mix)
Some of the tracks and music he put out in the early days of house were outstanding and so good they have totally stood the test of time and still sound great today.
This one is now 25 years old and it still sounds brilliant.
Big respect to Steve "Silk" also for a cracking track, but it's Jamie's vocals that make it.
Steve "Silk" Hurley featuring Jamie Principle -
Cold World (Extended Mix)
This is an absolute corker of a track and completely sums up why Chris & James were my all time fave DJ's and one of my fave remixers.
Everything about this track is just top notch and IMHO it just epitomises the C&J style.
Banging piano, big build ups, huge breakdowns, great samples, it's got everything.
Totally, totally love it.
Big up fella's!!
Chris & James - Shakermaker
This Mathhew Roberts (aka Bottom Dollar) remix makes it even better.
Top drawer track!!
Love the piano!
Gongo - Master Blaster
(Matthew's Master Mix)
Saturday, 15 March 2014
This is one such track, I had a recent request to re-up, so here it is.
Quite simply one of the greatest "hands in the air" piano choons of all time and featuring pretty high on the PCC list of all time faves. The track has everything, a pumping rhythm, amazing piano, great vocals, it's just tops!!
Enjoy!! (And if you don't like this track, then get off my blog - because this is what we're about!!)
Parra Dice - Can You Hear Me
Saturday, 8 March 2014
What a combination the fantastic M-People, the wonderful vocals of Ms. Small and the delightful remixing skills of the legend that is Mr Frankie Knuckles.
A match made in heaven.
Top, top, soulful house music.
M-People - Just For You
(Knuckles Classic Gospel Mix)
