For all those who rocked it all night until the early hours, to those that lived for clubbing and couldn't wait for the weekend to arrive. Enjoy and leave any comments on the blog or contact direct by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
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)
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!
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!
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)
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.
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!
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!
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.
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"
Gary Clail On-U Sound System Human Nature (On The Mix)
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.
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).
To remixer Dennis Ferrer.
Let's get underground!!
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)
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)
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)
