No stoppin' (until the finish line)!!!

Hello to all, here's a very self indulgent post and just a little reminder to myself.
Tomorrow I'm running my first marathon (all 26.2 miles of it) and "no stoppin" will certainly be the focus of the day.
I've trained hard for 5 months and so feel prepared, yet nervous and excited at the same time.
Ok, enough of that, now back to the music.
Well it's another cracking piano tune from 1992 and was actually the b-side to "Orcana" which is another PCC already posted some time ago.
It'll certainly be in my mind - that there's no stoppin' tomorrow.
Thank you to all those that have sponsored me to date, for those that haven't there is still the opportunity. It's for a great cause.
On this, I have to say that it is very disappointing that after 3 years of providing you with the greatest dance music the world has ever heard totally free of charge, that you've only managed to contribute £115 for my chosen charity. It is about give and take people; not just take!!
However, it's still not too late to donate and anything received will be greatly appreciated, please follow the web link below;
Thank you!!

Oldie but true goldie!!

I'm pretty amazed that this one hasn't already been posted.
It is another of those house classics and this one is very well known.
I used to think that one day I'd run out of tracks to post on the blog, but I don't think that will ever happen as there are so many fantastic tracks still to post.
I have a list of over 1,000 tracks still lined up to post and I keep adding to the list.
About this one, well as soon as you hear the opening bars you'll know instantly it.
It contains the famous lyrics from the classic Fingers Inc track
"In the beginning there was Jack and Jack had a groove"
It's then got that all too familiar piano riff, which just runs and runs.
It's 22 years old and still sounds fantastically fresh!!
"Let there be house"
Yes indeedy!!!

DJ Atomico Herbie - Atomic House

Who, who, who was wrong!!

It's been a while since I posted a bit of classic house a la Frankie Knuckles style.
This track is simply lush - beautiful, beautiful laid back classical house music from 1989.
Adeva has such a powerful voice and this is complimented by the lush piano vibes.
This is a really great version of a great track, with Eric Kupper on keyboards and of course Frankie Knuckles responsible for the remix.
Very tranquil, yet so uplifting.
Is there anybody who was contributed more to house music than Frankie Knuckles? - I think not.
The legend lives on!!

Adeva - Beautiful Love
(Classic Club Mix)

Now for something totally different!!

I've always been a huge fan of Balearic tracks and  some of my best clubbing memories remembering when a Balearic track was dropped - mid-set or last track of the night.
That change in tempo when everyone one just came together all loved up and singing along to a chorus' or just simply swaying from side to side, grooving to the slow beat floating in a little bubble.
Well here's a fantastic Balearic track. I never actually heard it in a club, but it I imagine it would be sensational.
It stirs the same kind of emotions as Edie Brickell's - Circle - which s one of my all time favourite tracks.
I hope you are feeling it too!!
Are there any DJ's out there who'd be brave enough to drop this in their set??

Sophie B Hawkins - Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover
(Long Version)

Get on the floor people!!!

I couldn't resist it. Ok back to the old skool again!!
Here's another old classic from 1989 and one that isn't as well known or popular as it should be.
It is a magnificent track from start to finish and is so instant in it's appeal.
I just love everything about this track.
The piano is sublime, the crunchy beats, the tempo, the feel, it just such a top track.
As mentioned it's certainly one of those classic old tracks which has gone somewhat forgotten about, but hey, that's the purpose of this blog, to bring you all those PCCs that you may have forgotten about or maybe never even heard.
Keen to have your feedback on this one.
IMHO it is right up there as one of the all time classics.
P.S. Just for the recordtThis track has nothing whatsoever to do with the delightful Ms Lopez and the frightful Pitbull!!

Urban Nature - Get On The Floor
(Extended Version)

An Oakey classic!!

Alright all, I hope you are all doing well.
I've posted quite a lot of old skool tracks recently and it's been a while since I posted some Oakey trance.
Here's one of the big tracks that he used to bang out circa 1998.
It's a quality piece of pumping trance which was typical of the tracks he was playing back then.
This track has such a great feel to it and it used to absolutely rock on the dancefloor.
Top trance music.
By the way I hope you are all enjoying the new posts which allow you to listen below you download.
Don't forget to leave your feedback and comments on the tracks.

So strong !!! - Never 2 Much!!!

Here's a rarity, me providing a mid-week post.
There was once a time when I'd post tracks almost every night, but work and family commitments have put paid to that for the last couple of years.
Here's coming at you - with a huge, huge fave of mine.
I used to have a DJ Vertigo tape called Gold Rush - which was an absolutely mix tape and this was one of the key tracks. Boy that tape got some play back int'day.
The track is a total PCC - fantastic atmposhere, superb piano, great vocals and a belting chorus - just the way we love 'em.
So Strong - indeed.
Just a reminder people - that I'm running my marathon in 3 weeks and I'd really appreciate some sponsors for my chosen charity - Get Kids Going!!
Thanks to all those who have sponsored me to date, however, I'm way off my intended target of £2000, so please support what is a truly worthy cause.
The link to my sponsor page is below (and also top right on the blog)
Thanks all!!!
Rock on!!

2 Much - So Strong
