"I don't know" (which I like best?)

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!

Moony - I Don't Know Why 
(Viale & DJ Ross Remix)

Balearic bliss!

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.
Any views?
That said it's a beautiful track (and two great remixes).
Although the Nexus 21 remix is the one!
Enjoy.
Bring on the summer!

You certainly do.
A top little lively piano number this one.
Very uplifting.

Just as long as I got you, I got love!

Just love this track.
Pure quality house music, which only people into house music will appreciate!
Totally timeless.

Anthony Acid - Just As Long As I Got You 
(Close To The Original Mix)

Same track, different mix!

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.
Enjoy!

Donna Summer - I Will Go With You (Con Te Partiro)
(Hex Hector Extended Vocal Mix)

You know you "gotta have it!!" again!

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).

Vanessa Paradis - Gotta Have It
(VIP Bootleg Mix)

That is a mircale!

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!"
Very true!

Stereogen - Castle Vania

Don't tell lies!!

Totally love this track, it was one hammered by Oakey back in 1999.
It is perfect laid back floating trance.
Great remix by Tilt.
Stunning!

(Tilt's Trinity Mix)

Happy Easter!!

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.
Top notch.

Spellbinding!!

Image result for saint etienne band
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.
Spell-bindingly beautiful!
Exquisite IMHO!!

Saint Etienne - Pale Movie
(Secret Knowledge Trouser Assassin Mix)

Reach for the Sky (Plus)!

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.

Bring on the Summer!

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!!

Espiritu - Francisca
(Junior Style House Dub)

Come on "Let's get down!"

Staying on the old school piano vibe.
Corking little track this one, with some charming vocals.
A tad cheesey maybe?
Ok a lot cheesey!! (Sorry!!)
You know you love it really!!

Byzantine - Let's Get Down
(U.S. Mix)




Piano on and on!!

A nice old skool piano banger.
Piano from start to finish.
Lovely!!
