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)

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"

A right little belter this one.
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)

(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)

Sunday, 1 March 2015

When love calls..... you better answer!

Another house classic, great vocals and a superb remix as per usual by E-Smoove.
This was always a biggie back in 1991.

Shay Jones - When Love Calls
(E-Smoove's Late Night )

Nothing compares!

A balearic classic from 1990 which still sounds great, very reminiscent of The Beloved.
A very clever little remix by Oakey.
This was the real Ibiza vibe!!

Frazier Chorus - Nothing
(Raid Mix)

Get off the wall!

A quality Italian House track from 1991.
Very typical of the quality old skool "piano choons" we loved from that era.
"Get off the wall"!

Fifty Hertz - Get Up
(Club Mix)

Come on everybody dance!

A bonafide club classic, this was always awesome on the dancefloor.
That piano riff was always to die for, cue the obligatory "hands in the air".
Top notch.

Evolution - Everybody Dance
(Chic Inspirational Mix)

Sunday, 15 February 2015

All around the world.....

......people should be dancing to this.
Best track East 17 ever produced, although not much of them on it.
A big Jon of The Pleased Wimmin track back int'day.
A stomper of a track.

East 17 - Around The World
(P & C Mix)

This will blow your mind!!

A top top tune this one.
I love the tempo changes in it and the lyrics have always been legendary.
A totally massive track on the club dancefloors back in 1993.
It totally blows your mind!!
"If you blow your mind, you're heading for destruction"
"Cause if you ain't part of the  solution, you got a problem"

You - Blow
(Ocean Mix)

Turn me on, turn me out!!

Yes indeed.
I can't believe that I haven't posted this track before.
I mean I must have but searching the blog it doesn't appear so.
A true club classic back int'day!
The Delorme version was always the one, but as ever the Chris & James remix is pretty tasty.
Massive shivers down the spine moment at 4.00 mins then the piano kicks in.
The hands would go up and the dancefloor explode!
Enjoy, as they don't make 'em like this anymore!!

Praxis featuring Kathy Brown - Turn Me Out
(The Delorme UK Club Mix)
