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'

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)

A true PCC - Right before my eyes!!

One of my fave golden oldie tracks (now 26 years old).
I know I've posted this before on the blog, but can't seem to find it, so can only presume it was taken down.
Anyway a great excuse to re-post.
I believe that there is a new track which has just come out which rips this off.
In fact I was in the gym the other day when it came on the radio.
It is nowhere near this original classic though, which is just a masterpiece.
Lyrics, vocals and piano are top notch.
Funny, that the youth of today still have to steal our old classics to make music!!

Patti Day - Right Before My Eyes
(House Vocal)

Saturday, 24 May 2014

Fireworks of trance!!

A huge fave of mine, which used to blow the dancefloor when it was dropped.
It still sounds awesome.
The Rank 1 remix was where it's at, it's like fireworks going off in your head.
Good music never dates.

Cygnus X - Superstring
(Rank 1 Remix) 

Sunday, 4 May 2014

Everybody wants to be - Bourgie, Bourgie!!!

Don't they just!!
Totally love this old classic and all the versions posted.
The original is amazing, the Joe Claussell remix is executed beautifully and just adds to and extends the original beautifully, whilst the vocal version is just pure Paradise Garage disco!!
Tracks this good never grow old and in fact seem to get better every time you hear them.
This is pure gold.
Can you believe it is 37 years old!!
This is and always will be an eternal timeless classic.

Ashford & Simpson - Bourgie Bourgie

Ashford & Simpson - Bourgie Bourgie
(Joe Claussell's Classic Remix)

John Davis  With The Monster Orchestra - Bourgie Bourgie

A touch of Paradise??

This was a big progressive house classic out on Cowboy, back in 1992.
Very Back 2 Basics for those that remember!!

Paradise Organisation - Prayer Tower
(Full Circle Mix)

Be a star all your life!!

Absolute monster of a track this one.
Proper euphoric trance.

Kimball & Dekkard - Starlife
(Original Mix)

Stay Home and Play!!!

Staying on the Frankie vibe, another delicious track which epitomises Frankie's style and his genius.
Totally love this track, absolutely massive.
Again another recent one and testament to the man's quality.
This is as good as anything he ever produced.
Simply stunning house music!!
Viva La Frankie!!!

Frankie Knuckles Presents Director's Cut 
featuring Inaya Day - Let's Stay Home
(Director's Cut Club Classic Mix)

Ready for some Hot Stuff??

Yeah, of course you are.
Staying on the Frankie vibe and further endorsing my statement that the Great Man maintained his prolific nature of churning out absolute quality all throughout his long and illustrious music career.
This must have been one of the last things he produced before his untimely death.
It's an absolutely tops re-working of the old Donna Summer classic.
Loving it!!
Big shout out to Simon for passing this one my way.
Cheers fella!
Enjoy people!!

Donna Summer - Hot Stuff

"One Man" who contributed so much!! R.I.P. Frankie!!

I'm sure that you've all heard the very sad news that Mr Frankie Knuckles the Godfather of House music passed away just recently aged just 59 years young.
Anybody who has ever followed this blog will be aware of my huge admiration for Frankie and the music he both made and remixed, not forgetting his fantastic talents as a DJ.
He always was and always will be one of my all time favourite remixes and from the very early creation of house music in the 86/87, he has been the "One Man" who has consistently remained at the very top for nigh on 3 decades. "One Man" who never let you down!!
My respect cannot reach out strongly enough.
R.I.P. Frankie your music and talents have touched so many people and will never be forgotten.
I've posted  many of the tracks he made and remixed on this blog and I post this one in honour of the man who was Mr House Music!! (This one was remixed with Morales)
Frankie "One Man " who changed the world forever.

Chanelle - One Man
(One Mix)
