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!
I posted the Trousers Enthusiasts remix of this recently which is awesome.
This mix is much more commercial but very catchy.
It also showcases Donna's stunning vocals very effectively.
A real feel good track.
Donna Summer - I Will Go With You (Con Te Partiro) (Hex Hector Extended Vocal Mix)
I've had lots of request to re-post this.
It took an absolute age to track it down.
I first came across it when Luvdup dropped it when they played at Vague in 1993.
Absolutely top notch little track which was then mixed into Outrage - Tall N' Handsome.
Lovely (much better than Joe Le Taxi).
Here's another track which contains a sample from that great 80's film Warriors.
I must of watched that film hundreds of times.
Here Cyrus preaches to the gangs, before he's shot down.
The track is a top notch skippy piano little thing. "That is a miracle and miracles are the way things ought to be!" "I say the future is ours!"
Happy Easter everyone, hope you've all had a great time.
This track has nothing particular to do with Easter, but it's just a great track.
It was a biggie at the Hac and a big Parky fave.
It's what I refer to as top, top class house music.
Great vocals, great build up, great piano.
Always totally loved Saint Etienne!
Cracking football team in the '70's and also a cracking pop band in the 90's.
When their tracks were remixed they created masterpieces.
This is one such track.
Superb remix by Kris Needs.
Saint Etienne - Pale Movie (Secret Knowledge Trouser Assassin Mix)
I think we were all excited when Robert Miles - Children first broke in '95, however it spawned a huge dirge of "fake trance" copy-cat trashy tunes, with a clear focus on the overground (commercial/charts) and not the underground (where it was at!!)
This was one of the good ones, which still stands the test of time 20 years later.
I know it's hardy summer here in old Blighty with temperatures at zero and snow on the ground.
But this one should bring a smile to your face and hopefully put you in a place for warmer climes.
I used to hammer this one back in 1992.
I always thought Espiritu were really unique and had a great Latin Flamenco summery vibe.
Great remix by the Farley/Heller. Top Boys!!
