Dear Fellow Dance Music Lovers,
This blog brings you the best in Dance Music and Club Classics; from early 87 (back in the daze) through to the present day.
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
Just picked this up recently which is currently big on the club scene and right up my street.
It's been heavily touted on Radio 1 and deservedly so.
It's not often I post current tracks on the PCC Blog, but this one is very hot at the moment and worthy of PCC status.
Get on it!
Well I most certainly need some of this.
It's been posted on the PCC blog some time ago, but that was by a guest poster, so I thought I'd post myself and add a bit of commentary.
The track itself is sensational and was a massive track for Oakey in the 90's and a regular feature of his epic sets, including many an Essential Mix.
It is a fantastic remix by Danny Tengalia, possibly his finest hour.
The track is just one long journey of sensational pleasure, floating along beautifully with Debbie Harry's luscious vocals and some very catchy lyrics. "Some days are all Mondays. Sort of time on ice. It seems like jet planes sit on runways under clear blue skies. Who needs it? Nothing is real but the girl. Nothing is real but me. Money goes to money in a figure eight; around me. Money where will love be, when you liquidate, you're drowning. Nothing is real but the girl, nothing is real but me. Nothing is real but the girl, nothing is real but me. Wind down. Put your mind down like your missing school. I'll teach you to find out while your dying in your living room how much you need me. Nothing is real but the girl, nothing is real but me. Nothing is real but the girl, nothing is real but me. Nothing is real but the girl, nothing is real but me. Nothing is real but the girl, nothing is real but me."
A truly sensational track!
Blondie - Nothing Is Real But The Girl (Danny Tenaglia Club Mix)
Totally loving this track.
I heard it recently on an Oakey mix and instantly fell in love with it.
Great to know that there are still some quality tracks being made (this one is 2014).
However, can't help feeling it needs to be longer, as it ends too abruptly.
If any of you DJ techies/remixers, wants to re-work it and send me a longer version, that'd be much appreciated.
This one would have gone down a stormer in the clubs I used to frequent back in the day, like the Hac, Cream, Basics, Soak, Ronsons etc.
Danger, Danger, seriously quality track.
Well the last track was nearly 30 years old, this one is over 40 years old, dating back to 1975 and again it still sounds amazing.
I've not heard it for ages, but funnily enough heard it again while watching Peter Kay's - Car Share and just remembered what a fantastic track it is.
Fantastic vocal performance from Billy Ocean - his best IMHO.
A Pure Club Classic is every sense!
Billy Ocean - Red Light Spells Danger
(1987 12'' Remix)
It's been a long while since I last posted, as I just don't seem to have the time these days.
However, my passion for top class dancefloor classics from back int' day never wane.
This is a corker.
It's almost 30 years old and still sounds amazing.
Keeping it on a positive vibe!
A cracking track, very gospel, but very well produced.
A top notcher piece of classic house!
I always love a track that slows down/stops and then kicks back in.
The Absolute featuring Suzanne Palmer - I Believe (Mark's Full On Gospel Mix)
"Never give up... it's such a wonderful life".
First time I've posted in ages, but back with a bang.
A cracking track this one, with some Freemasons magic.
ThePCC blog still rolls on and will continue to bring some corking tunes in the future!
Another awesome track.
It beggars belief why I've not posted this earlier as it was a huge PCC in all the self respecting clubs of the 90's.
Great Perfecto remix from Oakey/Osb, quite different from their normal style.
Adeva was undoubtedly one of the great vocal talents of our generation.
Adeva - Don't Let It Show On Your Face (Full Length Perfecto Mix)
Another stormer of a track.
Love the middle bit that just builds and builds and then kicks off.
Followed by the bit 7.30 in that goes all Mariah-esque, then builds and kicks in again.
Top drawer. "All I want, All I need is someone to hold.."
Veronica - All I Need Is Someone To Hold (Johnny Vicious Full Length Dance Mix)
Another little piano corker to brighten up your festive season.
Hope you are all having a great Christmas
This one is one of those tracks which appears to be going nowhere and then it unleashes a fierce piano kick and it's hands in the air time!
This one goes out to Ben J, thanks for all the recent tracks buddy.
Loving this cheeky little number, following on from Alan Walker's brilliant faded, this is another top notch little choon.
Very melodic with some lush piano.
It'd be a perfect summer tune and I'm sure would go down well in the Balearics.
Hopefully it'll provide some winter warmth?
Been a while since we had some Mariah on the PCC blog.
Another vocal performance of par excellence.
Another cracking Morales remix.
Always a perfect combination.
Loving that little bit of Spanish guitar also.
Alright people, sincere apologies for the lack of posts recently.
Things have just been very hectic and struggled to find the time.
Still many, many PCC yet to post.
Here's a pretty lively little number.
Which just stays on the right side of cheesy (I think?)
Here's the proper version from 1987 first posted on the PCC blog back in 2009.
Wow, that's 7 years ago.
This is a true Balearic classic, which still sounds amazing nearly 30 years later.
They simply don't make them like this anymore.
This one was absolutely hammered back in '92.
It was just one of those tracks that was played everywhere by every self-respecting DJ.
Really simple built around a simple riff and loop, but devastating in clubs.
Simple is sometimes best.
It still sounds great even today, 24 years on!
PM Dawn - A Watchers Point Of View (Todd Terry Mix)
Top notch little track this one.
A little bit mainstream, but nice all the same.
It's not often I post tracks made after 2000, as it is very rare that they match the quality of the PCC blog ethos and the glory days of '87 to '96.
This one though, has great vocals, some great piano and some nice little breakdowns.
Get on it!
Cracking little track this one.
With two equally great but very different mixes.
I don't quite know which one I prefer as both are excellent.
The Viale & DJ Ross mix is much more pianoy and uplfiting, whilst the Jerome Isma-Ae mix is much more trancey.
Both are great though, so you choose?
Great vocals by the way. Really powerful!
A fantastic track so perfect for Summer!
This one dates back to 1990.
It sounds very much like A Man Called Adam's - Barefoot In The Head, which was also made in 1990, so not sure who influenced who here as they are very similar.
It also contains the riff from D-Jaimin's - Give You (which was later 1991).
Hence, I'm not sure if this was a totally original masterpiece which spawned the others or not.
That said it's a beautiful track (and two great remixes).
Although the Nexus 21 remix is the one!
Bring on the summer!
