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)

Piano power - to touch the soul!!

What a powerful track this is.
If you like your piano you will love this.
Piano-tastic pretty much from start to finish.
A big, big choon!!

Touch Of Soul - We Got The Love
(Piano Version)

Very enthusiastic about this one!!

Another fantastic Trouser Enthusiast's mix.
Saint Etienne were always one of my fave pop bands, their music was always great.
Messrs Wiggs and Stanley - were true pop genius!
I love Sarah Cracknell's vocals too.
Mix this up with the pumping trance remix maestro's that are the  Trouser Enthusiasts and you have a bona fide club classic.
Pumpin' and drivin' from the first minute until the last.

Saint Etienne - Lose That Girl
(Trouser Enthusiast Mix)

Tell me what you think?

Apologies for no posts recently, not had much time to be honest.
But now back with a banger.
A total house classic from my all time favourite album - "And Still I Rise".
Alison's voice is amazing.
The album is just stunning from start to finish.
I used to play it to death, especially on a Sunday after a hard nights clubbing the day before.
I you like classic house music a al Frankie and Morales, then you'll love it.
I still play it now and get goosebumps.
This track is remixed by Frankie and Morales.

Alison Limerick - Tell Me What You Mean

Feel the love bomb!!

A totally rockin' old skool track.
Love the intro of this track and then it just continues to build and ultimately release the bomb!!
A killer track on the dancefloor this one.

Flipped Out - Love Bomb
(Exceller 8 Remix)

Release, release me yeah!!

Always loved this one, a proper house classic.
A big Parky track.
Simple but very effective.

Eric Perez Project - Release
(Classic Mix)

Fancy a bit of Debbie Gibson?

Totally love this track.
Not much Debbie Gibson singing in it, but maybe that's not a bad thing.
Just love the piano in this and the funky stop start vibe.
Top track.
Debbie's aged pretty well also.

Debbie Gibson - We Could Be Together
(House Of Trix)

Who is the Gamemaster!!

I know this has been posted before, but the link was dead (now restored) and it's such a great track I felt worthy of a second post.
An absolute belter of a track from Matt Darey (pictured) and absolutely hammered by Oakey in the late 90's.
When it kicked in at 1 min 42 secs the dancefloor would simply erupt!
Trance music at it's best, let me tell you.
The whole energy of this track is incredible from start to finish.
Love the piano bits that come in near the end.
Awesome track!!

Lost Tribe - The Gamemaster
(Original Mix)

Let's get - "Out of control"

One of my big big faves and a track that will always bring back special memories as it was also one of my best mates faves who sadly passed a few years ago.
We used to rock to this one Deano - R.I.P. Fella.
Re-posted for Bentcoppa.
This is the best version I have but I blieve you can now get it from Amazon which may be a better quality?
Enjoy people, another top top old skool track!!

The Project featuring Linda Rice - Out Of Control
(FHR Club Mix)

I've got the mu, mu, mu-sic!!!

I've got the music - oh yes indeed!!
An absolute belter of a track and one that was just tops when played out in clubs.
The piano and vibe in this is just top drawer.
Both mixes are awesome and I can never decide which is the best of the two, so I've posted them both.
Re-posted especially for Whizzo.
Enjoy fella!!
A proper old skool classic!!
"I've got the mu, mu, mu-sic!!!"

Seventh Sense - Get The Music
(Jazz Crusade)

Seventh Sense - Get The Music

Saturday, 6 December 2014

That was just dream!!

Another track which I've always truly loved.
There have been many many attempts to create a good dance mix of this pop classic, but none have come anywhere near except this one.
It keeps all the best bits of a great record and just dances it up enough.
I love the chunky beats.
I just love this track!!

REM - Losing My Religion
(DMC Remix)

Ready...for some Freaky Dancing??

This has always been my favourite Happy Mondays track (along with Hallelujah) and it just epitomises everything about them.
Raw, edgy, unpolished, but highly infectious.
I've still got the 12" somewhere in my garage.
Debatable how dance this is, but it's awesome all the same and I could imagine it going down a treat last track of the night!!
Just get down with the Freaky Dancing!!

Happy Mondays - Freaky Dancin' 

Saturday, 25 October 2014

A bonafide old skool classic!!

Can't believe I've not posted this before now.
A real old classic from 1990.
This track was played out everywhere for about 18 months.
It was played by virtually every DJ going whether, house, techno etc and featured on almost all DJ mix tapes of that era.
To be honest I like it more now, than I did at the time.
A proper timeless classic.

Frank De Wulf - The B Sides Remixed 
- The Tape - (Remix)

Beautiful indeed!!

Stunning piece of classic trance.
This ones for you DJ Wolf e, great suggestion buddy.
Love the piano in this track, as I'm sure Jessica does too!!

Madagascar - You're Beautiful
(Original Mix)

Down deep in your heart!!

Loving this.
A quality bit of classic house music.
Touched by the hand of Todd.

Naked Music NYC - I'll Take You To Love
(Tee's Master Mix)

Sunday, 12 October 2014

"Kick up the volume and play it out loud"

A guilty pleasure!!
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)

Don't want to stop?? Then don't stop!!!

Another corker.
Feel the power of that piano - only matched by the power of the vocal.
A big track in more ways than one.

Liz Torres - I Don't Want To Stop
(Kenny Jason Mix)

Stand up - throw your hands up to the sky!!

Well why not!!
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)

Saturday, 11 October 2014

Oh yeah, Kiss me baby!!

A corking little piano track this one.
Piano from the very start it never lets up, just instant gratification.
Love it!!

Steve Bloom - Kiss Me Baby
(Extended Mix)

Go on, "do that to me"!!

A little stopmper from LME who always produced great tracks and remixes.
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)

Saturday, 13 September 2014

Over and over and over again!!

An absolutely quality track, but that's what you'd expect when you put together one of my favourite pop bands and one of my favourite remixers.
This ones for DJ Wolf e.
Enjoy fella!!

Saint Etienne - Sylvie
(Trouser Enthusiasts' Tintinnabulation Mix)

Another corker!!

Absolute corker of a track this one.
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.
Pure quality!!

Simone - Hey Fellas
(Club Vocal Mix)

One of my all time favourites!

I know I've posted this before, but I'm re-posting as it's certainly worthy of it.
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 
(Extended Mix)

An all time classic!!

I haven't played this for ages and heard it again recently and it brought all the memories flooding back.
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)

"Rockin' this day here"

Well that's what I used to sing to this..
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)

Go on Michelle!!

Cracking track, nothing to do with Michelle Keegan, but she looks great so just enough reason to post.

Michelle - Standing Here Alone
(Gems For Jem Vocal Mix)

Saturday, 6 September 2014

Another banger!!

On the stomping trance vibe once again.
This is pretty epic, topped off with some exquisite vocals.
Immense and intense at the same time!!

The Morrighan - Remember (To The Millennium)
(Lange Remix)

It's a movin' melodies production!!

Just in case you didn't know!
Always loved this track.
Simple but effective.
Interesting track title, better not google that and post an image.

Indica - Labia

Keep it in the family!!

I'm testing my credibility here, but staying on the Minogue sisters vibe.
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
(Pumpin' Mix)


No not Dannii, the track!
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)


A little piece of trance heaven from the man like!!
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

A banger!!

A bit faster (and ravier) than most tracks I post, but gotta love the bangin' piano.

TBA - I Want U2 Stay
(Original Mix)

Very suggestive, hell yeah!!

A cracking progressive house number from the loaded label.
Very Chris and James-esque.
I'm feeling it!!

Suggestive - Advances

You want this party started, right?

Can't believe I've not posted this before, a true house classic.
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
(Club Mix)

Sunday, 17 August 2014

Enjoy the perks of life!!

Now there aren't many songs that used to make me laugh when I was out clubbing, but this one always used to.
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)

Just breathe!!

Another good soothing trance number.
Lovely vocals by Lucy Cotter.
Matt Darey behind this one, nice!!

Tekara - Breathe In You
(Lost Tribe Remix)

Hold on - this is good for the soul!

Another corking remix as ever from Adam K and Soha.
A really soothing trance voyage.
Puts you on the relaxation cloud!!

Lazee - Hold On
(Adam K and Soha Vocal Mix)

Seize the moment!!

A cracking house track, great vocals, great rhythm, great piano just how we like them.

Bobby D'Ambrosio featuring Michelle Weeks
- Moment Of My Life
(Classic Club Mix)

Saturday, 2 August 2014

I beg your pardon!!

Always loved this track.
Just really good dance music, which has stood the test of time!!
Especially love the female vocal bit!!

Kon Kan - I Beg Your Pardon
(Club Mix)

Coming with me on this one??

As always another banging Trouser Enthusiasts remix.
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)

Feeling sky high??

No mistaking the vocals on this one.
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)

Saturday, 26 July 2014

Ooh feel the Ice Rain!!

A cracking throbbing piece of trance heaven.
Love the subtle piano undertones.
Top track.

Alex Whitcombe and Big C - Ice Rain
(Heliotropic Epic Vocal)

Sunday, 13 July 2014

Show me love!!

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)
(Club Mix)

Just let your body be free!!

Used to love this track from 1993.
Very simple, but very effective with some lovely soothing piano.
"Just let your body be free"!!

Volcano - Let Your Body Be Free
(Vocal Mix)

Saturday, 28 June 2014

Keep on running!!!

A massive track, typical Blue Amazon remix - top quality!!
Love the piano chords - very intense!!

Blue Amazon - The Runner

Sunday, 22 June 2014

It's the Bomb!!

Top track this one, right from the opening piano cords it never lets up.
Another very fine Mr Morales remix.
Top notch!!

Toshi Kubota - Funk It Up
(Morales Club Of Funk Mix)

Saturday, 21 June 2014

Real, real love - happy house music!!

A top little house track this one from 1991.
Lots of lovely piano, just very refreshing.
Feel the real love!!

Helen Bruner - Gimme Real Love
(Unity Mix)

Saturday, 14 June 2014

Always happy house music - no broken promises!!

Sometimes I just love house music because the tracks are very simple and not over produced.
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
(Cub Mix)
