  1. Le Voie Le Soleil Remixes by Subliminal Cuts


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    One of my all time favorite euphoric house/trance classics is Le Voie Le Soleil by Subliminal Cuts. The original still sounds fresh today and when I play it I can relive the days of total electronic, dance music bliss in the 90s! This was classic when it came out and I still love it. Le Voice Le Soleil has had several releases back in the 90s the first time in 1994 with a Way Out West Summer Of Love Remix as well as a Gems For Jem Remix. Remember Gems For Jem? Probably not! They have this handbag house hit called Lifting Me Higher but that’s another story. To be honest the Gem For Jems remix of Le Voie Le Soliel is not my favorite. Two years later it got rereleased with an updated progressive house remix by Way Out West and a really fun acid style Itchy & Scratchy Remix and this when I discovered Le Voie Le Soleil and became a fan of this classic track since then. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve listened to the original version, the Itchy & Scratchy Remix and the the Way Out West 1996 Club Mix. All three are excellent. Subliminal Cuts is Patrick Prins from Holland who is known for such dance classics as La Luna and Bits And Pieces. Check those out if you haven’t heard them.

    Enjoy Le Voie Le Soleil remixes below and discover a classic dance track from the 90s if you haven’t heard of it before. What do you think?

  2. We’re Ready When You Are feat. Ebony Bones (DJ Mehdi Remix ) by The Krays


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    The Krays are 1. Yuksek, Brodinski (both from France) and Ebony Bones, an actress singer from the UK. What they have put it out here with We’re Ready When You Are is instant nu disco classic music. I especially love the DJ Mehdi Remix as I can’t stop listening to it. It’s one of those very groovy modern disco music with wild girl vocals screaming and yelling out “I’m Not Scared”, “We’re Ready When You Are”. Loads of fun and perfect for a party or driving down the street with your speakers blasting. I can only imagine what else this trio will come up with in the near future as I can’t wait for more music!

    Enjoy!

  3. The Bucketheads Sample Movin’ by Brass Construction With Got Myself Together


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Taking disco and sampling it into house music in the 90s was a regular thing. It happened over and over again and I’m so happy that that era happened because two of my favorite styles of music had blended together to become an awesome style – disco house! Disco and House rule! Anyway this is a great example of that style. Take a Chicago house master like Kenny Dope and add a famous disco song from the 70s by Brass Construction, shake it up and end up with a classic 90s club hit by The Bucketheads!

    Got Myself Together was the second hit off of The Bucketheads one and only awesome album All In The Mind didn’t become as big a hit as The Bomb was but it’s just as good if not better than The Bomb. I’m sure everyone remember The Bomb with the classic line “These Sounds Fall Into My Mind”? Then you will for sure remember The Bucketheads. The album All In The Mind even contained a 15 minute version of The Bomb for non stop beats. It’s a classic track now 15 years strong! Phew those were good times in the 90s! Weren’t they? All In The Mind is chock full of tracks utilizing samples from bands such as Chicago, Level 42, Atmosfear and Linda Clifford. Boy if you love music that is made up of samples then this album needs to be in your collection!

    It was also so unique to discover a Latin/jazz version of Movin’ called Movin’ On by Ray Camacho of the Ray Camacho Band. All I have to say is that the 70s rules when it comes to music! Loads of cool hip styles were running all over. Kind of like the 90s and what’s starting to happen now again! Yay! Keep em comin’!

  4. Dirty South Featuring Rudy Sample Harry Nilsson With Phazing


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I absolutely love it when they sample a classic song like Harry Nilsson’s Everybody’s Talkin’ from the 60s. Dirty South have sampled the classic song, added the vocals by Rudy and put a beat against all of it and made it into a perfect club dance stormer. It’s working all fine for me and I’m sure it works great for you too. Dirty South have done some cool remixes in the past and most notably a really cool remix of the classic synth pop song Just Can’t Get Enough by Depeche Mode which you can find here. So I certainly will be keeping an eye out for more Dirty South from Dirty South Australia!

    Enjoy!

  5. Camino Del Sol (Todd Terje Remix) by Antena


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I recently discovered this awesome track Camino Del Sol (Todd Terje Remix) by Antena and it has really grown on me. I’m speaking about the remix to Antena’s Camino Del Sol remixed by Todd Terje from a couple of years back. The original is from way back in 1982 that I only discovered after hearing the awesome Todd Terje Remix. Actually both the original and remix are pretty new to me but the remix is quite awesome. It’s got a very chill, flowy, summery, beachy vibe that you can put on and chill to with waves crashing into the beach and with warm summer sun rays hitting your face. That’s the kind of track this is. And with the Todd Terje remix he’s added his trademark very light nu disco vibe to it that I’m really loving. The original is more lo-fi Brazil island vibe but the remix rocks!

    Now I’m really curious to search out and find out more about Antena. Interesting note is Isabelle Antena is one of the 3 members from Antena and I think the band is most likely named after her last name. Right? If you are at all a fan of island chill, Brazil jazz, downtempo then Antena is your cup of tea. It’s mine too and I just love this Todd Terje Remix.

    The remix is off of the remix album called Version Speciales #1 of Antena songs and there are some  awesome remixes by famous remixers and musicians. Other remixes of Antena songs on the remix collection are by bands Nouvelle Vague, Chromatics, Joakim, Phreek and Disco Devil! Worth owning if you don’t have it.

  6. Wonderful Life (Arthur Baker Remix) by Hurts


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I love a good Arthur Baker Remix and that’s just what this is. Wonderful Life by Hurts, the band that sounds like they stepped off of the 80s synth pop days is remixed by Arthur Baker here with a very electro 80s synth sound. It’s got a very freestyle, electro feel to it and it’s been on my iPhone for quite sometime now. It kind of reminds me of the Planet Rock or Looking For The Beat beats from those two songs.

    The song is quite strong and it hints at bands like Depeche Mode and New Order but is truly original. If you like anything by the bands I mentioned above or anything electronic synth pop then you will love Hurts. Wonderful Life is off of the Hurts debut album Happiness which also contains the hits Better Than Love and Stay. Not available in The States currently, God only knows why but get the import CD Happiness here as it’s highly recommended by me!

  7. Moskow Diskow (Carl Craig Remix–Single Edit) by Telex


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Moskow Diskow (or Discow) is one of those rare classic synth pop, new wave tracks that wont go out of style. First released in 1979 off of the Looking For Saint Tropez album it became a classic right away and a huge club hit in The States in the 80s putting the Belgian band in the same caliber as Kraftwerk as their music is quite similar to Kraftwerk’s. I love a good remix and this remix Moskow Diskow by Carl Craig came out in 1998 and it basically updates the classic synth sound of the original Moskow Diskow which I still love. There’s a whole bunch of new remixes of Moskow Diskow that came out last year but this Carl Craig remix is still very fresh today as it’s very much keeping the 80s synth sound with a 90s remix production but with the 80s sound in vogue currently the original English version and French version of Moskow Diskow are pretty darn cool all over again! Enjoy below.

  8. Night People (Emperor Machine Mix) by The Human League


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    The Human League are back! And they are in top form here. After being quiet for 10 years since their last album, Secrets came out in 2001 they have released this excellent single Night People and there are countless remixes that are worth getting. If you haven’t heard anything by The Human League since the 80s or even the early 90s then you should check them out on Night People. If you are complete virgin with The Human League then Night People will give you a taste of what The Human League sound is all about.

    I love The Human League and I have been such a big fan of their sound since first hearing them in 1982 when I was just 11 years old with their HUGE hit Don’t You Want Me off their Dare album. And I still continue to follow them and the various incarnations they have gone through including the R&B territory they went to with their album Crash in 1986 which was produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Ok that was their low point I think as it was a very weak album. Their music always has a place with me  and will continue follow them until they don’t make music any longer. This single is released on Wall Of Sound Records!

    Enjoy!

  9. Through The Night (The Swiss Menergy Remix) by Grum


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    The Swiss Menergy Remix? Are they hinting at Patrick Cowley? Sounds like! The remix to Through The Night with the really funny video is definitely an homage to the 80s high energy disco sound that Patrick Cowley was known for. His trademark sound has been updated and remixed Through The Night the cool 80s flavored artist Grum by The Swiss. It’s definitely a winning remix. Patrick Cowley was known for working and producing folks like Sylvester and DJing at legendary gay clubs in San Francisco and one listen to The Swiss Menergy Remix of Through The Night will take you back to the 80s clubs. It’s such a great combo here Grum who I’m totally digging lately and The Swiss with Bubble Bath fame are a winning combo. There are certainly several other remixes in the Through The Night remix package but The Swiss Menergy Remix is the one remix that gets my vote! Although the Bit Funk Remix is quite cool too. Through the Night is off of the Grum album Heartbeats. Check out Menergy too from Patrick Cowley below. All recommended.

  10. Animal (DJ’s From Mars Extended Remix) by Neon Trees


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I’m sure you’ve heard of this song Animal by Neon Trees from somewhere already as it’s been everywhere but have you heard of this remix by DJ’s From Mars? It’s even better than the original I kid you not. Screw the guitar and take the upbeat energetic electro club beats. Ok just kidding the original is good but you know me I love my remixed music!

    I don’t know who DJ’s From Mars are but they sure did a great job remixing this cut and it’s certainly ready for the clubs. The original is from the Neon Trees Habits CD but no official remix package is available anywhere so not sure why? Found this remix on a compilation that was sent and I figured it was worth putting up. You like?

  11. Every Day Is Halloween (Retro Electro Remix) by Ministry


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    If you grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area in the late 80s and you listened to Live 105 and especially Steve Masters on Live 105 then you will surely remember Everyday Is Halloween by Ministry. Not the Ministry that is known for Jesus Built My Hotrod and NWO from the 90s but the Ministry that is known for songs like Work For Love, Effigy and I Wanted To Tell Her! The more synthy, dance pop cuts that were forced onto Ministry by Arista Records to produce under contract. Well I’m glad they were forced into it because if not then we wouldn’t have them. The pre industrial cuts Ministry did were pretty classic at least to me but unfortunately that was not what Ministry wanted to do. Right after they released their one and only album under contract to Arista Records, With Sympathy (everyone should have this in their music collection btw as I think it’s a masterpiece) they went right into industrial dance territory, EBM which later became their hard core speed metal grunge industrial aggro sound that they became mostly known for. They released Every Day Is Halloween under contract to Wax Trax Records. This is the true Ministry sound. I love their sound and style here with cuts like Every Day Is Halloween, All Day, Cold Life and more. True EBM, Industrial dance classics or whatever you want to call it. Even bordering on goth! Evidenced on the Greatest 12 Inches from the Wax Trax label. So being a big fan of Everyday Is Halloween I had to pick up the greatest hits disc called Every Day Is Halloween: The Greatest Tricks.

    Ok this is kind of cheezy although I do like the beats to this remix of Every Day Is Halloween but its sounding like it’s re-recorded so the vocals sound completely different than the original. I have a feeling for this greatest hits collection they couldn’t get the rights to or couldn’t afford the rights so they re-recorded it which cost them much less. Well it’s fine. It’s almost like a cover with an updated remixed sound. I dig it! The rest of the album though, hmm. You be the judge. Every Day Is Halloween: The Greatest Tricks even has a death metal version too. Not my cup of tea. Sorry! There are plenty of remakes or covers on the album too including a cover of the Amy Winehouse classic Rehab. Ok? What next! The Theme to A Summers Place?

  12. Liberating Soul (FM Attack remix) by Tesla Boy


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Tesla Boy is your favorite new 80s band from today! Their music sounds like it comes from the 80s but with very modern production values you know made for today. If you are at all into anything 80s inspired including synth pop dance, italo-disco, 80s disco dance then Tesla Boy is your ticket to great new music discovery! Even their name is very 80s sounding! Remember the song Tesla Girls by OMD? Ok I wont mention the hideous 80s metal band Tesla (oops I just did) but you get the point!

    The Tesla Boy album Modern Thrills kicks the 80s sound right off with an excellent synth classic song called Electric Lady. Then it gets better and better with cuts like Synthetic Prince, Minsk-2, Dark Street, Fire and Thinking Of You so I highly recommend you check Modern Thrills out. Liberating Soul is the first single off of Tesla Boy’s Modern Thrills album. It’s fun synth, pop classicness! Great 80s sounding vocals even.I can’t pinpoint which 80s synth pop band they sound like but they really do. Maybe you know? The remix for Liberating Soul by FM Attack adds a certain, laidback spaceyness to it with the trademark spacey FM Attack sound. Being a big fan of FM Attack I always seek out new remixes they do. I especially love the remix they did for the Edwin Van Cleef song Overtaken. If you haven’t heard of it check it out here.

  13. Xlover Covers Prince With Darling Nikki!


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    A sexy sleazed up electro synth version of Prince’s sexy, orgasmic ballad from Purple Rain? Yes that’s what Xlover have done to remake this classic Prince song from the cool soundtrack to the film Purple Rain. Ok the singing is a bit off but hey it’s a fun project off of the oh so cool International Deejay Gigolo Records from Berlin, DJ Hell’s label with the Amanda Lepore logo. Ok that’s a bit of old news but I’ve been a big fan of International Deejay Gigolo Records. Just recently they released CD Twelve from the long running series of cool electro, dance, punk, new wave, synth based tracks from the label. This collection of songs certainly recommended if you are into this type of music as it contains cool remixes of songs including A Fifth Of Beethoven (Soulwax Remix) by Walter Murphy. Yes the classic disco track from Saturday Night Fever and other remixes like Peaches Lose You remixed by DJ Hell.

    Anyway back to Xlover and Darling Nikki … Darling Nikki is off of the Xlover album Pleasure & Romance and the album is chock full of sleazy, sexy dark electro vox cuts. Check out more Xlover cuts here.

  14. Shirley Bassey Covers Grace Jones With Slave To The Rhythm (The Glimmer Twins Remix)


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I previously wrote about a Grace Jones Slave To The Rhythm sample by Magnum 38 but wanted to write again because theirs this great cover by Dame Shirley Bassey. Most of you will probably remember Shirley Bassey from the excellent collaboration she did with the Propellerheads with History Repeating back in the 90s. A complete contrasting track off of the rest of Decksandrumsandrockandroll by Propellerheads. But in reality you should get to know Shirley Bassey because she has some really cool music. I suppose the collaboration she did with the Propellerheads was a complete fit since she did the James Bond soundtrack themes but this Grace Jones remake is right on. Especially this Glimmer Twins remix as it has a very late 80s dance electronic beat sound. I’m sure you’ll recognize it once you hear it.

    Ok we’re covering a lot of ground here. The Glimmer Twins are actually The Glimmers. The Glimmers were originally The Glimmer Twins but they were forced to change their name by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards because The Glimmer Twins was a project of theirs and they own the name or something so the big man won here and they were forced to become The Glimmers!

    Anyway if you don’t know about Shirley Bassey check her music out. I think her voice and her music lends to remixes very well as evidenced in History Repeating and her own Greatest Hits Remixes album from about 10 years ago so I can certainly wish to hear more remixes of her tracks in the near future. In the meantime checkout both Grace Jones and Shirley Bassey doing Slave To The Rhythm at the links below.

  15. Why Can’t There Be Love (Pilooski Edit) by Dee Edwards


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I had just recently discovered this great song Why Can’t There Be Love by Dee Edwards off of a Gilles Peterson Digs America Volume 2 CD and now comes this awesome remix/edit by Pilooski! WOW. I love it. I love compilations as I discover so much cool new tunes, remixes, remakes by getting new compilations I don’t know anything about. Anything vintage remixed is perfection for me. I picked up Saint-Germain-Des-Pres Cafe. The Blue Edition compilation and there was this great new Pilooski remix of Why Can’t There be Love by Dee Edwards. I actually still dig the original but the remix by Pilooski just adds the cool big beats to make it more club friendly. I’ve been enjoying remixes by Pilooski lately especially the big remix Pilooski did a couple of years back of the Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons song Beggin’. He has since remixed countless other artists including Nina Simone, LCD Soundsystem, Quantic, Bent and many more. The real winner here is the great remix that Pilooski has done with the Dee Edwards song Why Can’t There Be Love. Enjoy both the original and remix below and check out the great compilations the original and the remix are on.

    Gilles Peterson Digs American Volume 2 is definitely a compilation worth owning. If you are at all into 70s jazzy soul R&b then this mix of tracks compiled by Gilles Peterson is your cup of tea. The compilation included not only Why Can’t There Be Love the original by Dee Edwards but also tracks by Lorez Alexandria, Al Jarreau, Ray Camacho and more. Get it before it’s out of print and not available to own.

    Saint-Germain-Des-Pres Cafe. The Blue Edition compilation includes tracks by CfCf, Ben Westbeech, Dj Food, Mr Scruff, London Funk Allstars and many many more. The 2 CD mix is highly recommended for home entertaining as it’s got a great mix of cocktail type music.

  16. Top Ten Best Dance Remixes Of 2010!!!


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Love me some good old remixes so I figured I’d gather ten of my favorite remixes from 2010 and post them here for everyone else to enjoy like I have been. I have to say I think one of the best remixes from last year is the Armand Van Helden Remix for Add SUV the Uffie song. The original is a bit of a mess and not typically what I enjoy but the remix rocks!

    If you haven’t heard these remixes then you’ve been sleeping under a rock in 2010 and now it’s time for you to find out and enjoy these just as much as I am. Robyn’s song Dancing On My Own remixed by Fred Falke is pop/dance bliss. Then there’s Jody Wisternoff aka Way Out West song Don’t Crash Please remixed by Stereofunk. That thing is so sexy, groovy, club house stomper. Love it! Click through each link and it will take you to each post and you can download the remixes there.

  17. Second Lives (Lifelike Remix) by Vitalic


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Lifelike have take the techno electro track Second Lives by Vitalic from his Flashmob album and have given it the more happy disco vibe. Still has the electro edge to it but it’s a little more groovy as disco/electro music should be. This remix by Lifelike also has a very late 70s early 80s dance sound as well. You know when disco was becoming hi nrg, italo and all. I love this remix and I think it’s my favorite from the remix package for Second Lives by Vitalic. Other remixes included in the package are The Bloody Beetroots Remix and Mustang Remix. If you are a fan of Vitalic or techno electro or any remixes then this is your single!

  18. Beam Me Up (Jacques Renault Remix) by Midnight Magic


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Thanks to Hercules & Love Affair’s first self titled album the disco revival thing is happening big time and I think Midnight Magic are leading the way for some awesome cool new music. I love all things disco and this single Beam Me Up does not disappoint at all. I hear that Midnight Magic even has a former Hercules & Love Affair band member. Well if that’sBoth the original with it’s mellower groove and the Jacques Renault Remix with a slightly more upbeat version are great examples of nu disco. Beam Me Up has a slight 40s influence I hear as well. Is that intentional? I just love the cut and I can’t stop listening to it. And if you are into anything disco you will dig it for sure. Really looking forward to checking out what else Midnight Magic come up with!

    Check them out below and and check out two more awesome remixes of Beam Me Up by Midnight Magic here.

  19. Me & Madonna (The Twelves Remix) by Black Strobe


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    At the turn of the century you can certainly feel that dance music was going into a different direction. Trance was on it’s way out and every single sub genre of dance music had come and gone and finally electro was popping up everywhere. Bands like Fischerspooner, Miss Kittin and The Hacker and Ladytron had started a new sound called electroclash. Well that lasted right? Not but the electro sound is still pretty big. This song Me & Madonna by Black Strobe was one of those dark, sleazy vocal electro cuts that still sounds quite fresh today. It could have fit perfectly on any of the International Deejay Gigolos compilations in fact I believe it was on one of the volumes. The original 2002 version has a very 80s feel to it, with New Order guitars and all. Black Strobe have moved over to Kitsune label and I think that makes perfect sense. Don’t you?

    This 2010 remix by The Twelves from the Me & Madonna remixes package has been given the grooved up treatment that I’m digging quite a lot. It’s jumpy, fun and upbeat and most fun. Not sleazy, dark and mellow like the original but certainly upbeat and danceable. It’s a good remix by The Twelves. Cool thing to note about Black Strobe is that they did a really awesome remix of Something To Do for Depeche Mode about 5 years ago that I highly recommend if you haven’t heard it yet to seriously check it out here.

    I’m discovering Duffy late from everyone else. I like her music but I was so damn tired of the Amy Winehouse sound after she exploded everyone else popped up sounding like they stepped out of the 60s. I’m over it already. Second Duffy album prob not as good as her first album so I don’t have much to comment on it. I did somehow find this remix of Well Well Well (Digital Dog Club Mix) which reminds me of any pop song remixed in the 90s type thing. Loads of pop tracks were getting the big club remix treatment back then and takes me back sort of. Has this remix gotten an official release actually? I can’t find anything about it anywhere so is it rare? I actually do like this somewhat and compared to the original version I like this better.

    Ok now you know I have a soft spot for pop/dance. And actually after checking out Endlessly by Duffy her new album I do like several of the cuts. Sorry! But I must stop here and no Adele for me!

  21. Don’t Cry Tonight (12” Version) by Savage


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Don’t Cry Tonight is the forgotten 80s guilty pleasure that I recently discovered again after checking out Back To Mine by Pet Shop Boys compilation see image below. If you haven’t heard this double album by Pet Shop Boys from the Back To Mine series you need to hear it now. It’s got all great classic tracks inspired by the boys from Pet Shop Boys. One disc of tracks by Neil and other disc of track by Chris. Don’t Cry Tonight is off of Chris’s disc. Since then I have not been able to stop listening to Don’t Cry Tonight by Savage. The song originally was released in 1983 and was one of those tracks that kick started the Italo-Disco sound that I have come to love since then. Ok I’ve fallen out of love then have come back to love again as the sound is pretty original. Don’t Cry Tonight sounds like the soundtrack to one of those 80s B movies about space and aliens taking over earth or could even be the soundtrack to Blade Runner or other similar type films. It’s got a very futuristic sound but not really upbeat either as it’s mellow, pretty laidback, very synthy and when you listen to it you can imagine driving through dark tunnels. Love it! It’s the perfect track to listen to at night when everyone is asleep and you can’t and are driving through lone streets. Beautiful and melancholy vocals by Roberto Zanetti.

    Don’t Cry Tonight is on the album Tonight from 1984 but unavailable for download anywhere. iTunes does have a Greatest Hits album from 1994 which includes several 1994 remixes of Don’t Cry Tonight which don’t come close to the original whatsoever. There is one remix which I have below also called Grand Mix. Check it out it sounds like you are listening to a Milli Vanilli song with the Don’t Cry Tonight lyrics. Fun but not that great of a remix. The Greatest Hits album does contain the song Only You also some remakes by Depeche Mode Strangelove and I Just Died In Your Arms by Cutting Crew.

    Enjoy both below.

  22. Fee Fi Fo Fum (Sharp Dub 12″) by Candy Girls Featuring Sweet Pussy Pauline


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    NU Energy! A hybrid of High Energy, Techno, Euro House perfectly blended to make a very upbeat, upfront, handbag dance club type music and the Candy Girls led the pack with their fun, quirky, naughty energetic cuts in the mid 90s. Fee Fi Fo Fum is their first big hit that featured Sweet Pussy Pauline on vox. Back in the late 80s, Sweet Pussy Pauline was known for her really naughty acid house hit “Work This Pussy’” search for that online and just take a listen if you’re curious but Sweet Pussy Pauline was guest vocals on Candy Girls as the Candy Girls were Rachel Auburn and Paul Masterson. They had three or so hits in the 90s and later disappeared. Wham Bam came after Fee Fi Fo Fum then afterwards they did a cover of I Want Candy the Bow Wow Wow classic which was not really originally a Bow Wow Wow song. The Strangelove’s did I Want Candy originally but that’s another story that we might feature on here.

    Anyway check out both the original 12″ of Fee Fi Fo Fum and the Sharp Dub. Anyone remember Sharp from the 90s? Loved his remixes although they were pretty bassy with the same Nu Energy sound. Sharp are also The Sharp Boys. Big remixers from the 90s! Don’t forget to listen to Sweet Pussy Pauline’s vocals well I know you wont miss them as she will repeat the following over and over throughout the entire length of the track. Ok it’s naughty so keep the kids away.

    “Boom Shaka Laka, Boom Shaka Laka, Boom Shaka Laka, Boom Shaka Laka”
    “Fee Fi Fo Fum, Fee Fi Fo Fum, Fee Fi Fo Fum, Fee Fi Fo Fum, Look Out Drone Here It Come!”
    “Fuck Me You big black bag (or bat?) balloon belly buffalo butt Kentucky fried chicken eaten ain’t that mother fuckin’ you!” “Bitch!”

    “Drop The Bass Girls”

  23. Jan Johnston Remakes Sleeping Satellite by Tasmin Archer


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Tasmin Archer’s biggest hit Sleeping Satellite was a fun and obscure pop hit that came out of nowhere in 1992 to land on the pop charts. Later Tasmin Archer was nowhere to be found. I loved this song back in the early 90s and I think I have not heard much more from Tasmin since then. So Tasmin certainly reached the one hit wonder status but the song is certainly solid and still sounds great today. The remake here by Jan Johnston is quite good. Released by Perfecto Records, Paul Oakenfold’s 90s mega dance label that’s released countless trance hits is behind the production here. I think Jan Johnston does a pretty good job at singing this cut. I like it and I’m so happy that’s been remade as it deserves to be noticed today. The single package contains several remixes that are highly recommended to owning but this is the Club Mix below along with the original Tasmin Archer version that if you were too young or not around in 1992 you wouldn’t even know about it. This remake came out in 2009. Original Tasmin Archer version of Sleeping Satellite is off of Tasmin’s Great Expectations CD.

    Enjoy both versions below and feel free to comment on what you think  if each version.

  24. Stylophonic Samples Della Reese With If Everybody In The World Loved Everybody In The World!


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Hey this is one of my favorite tracks from the 2000′s! It’s actually a midtempo, laidback vocal sampled electronic track from Stylophonic out of Italy. Not heard of it? Well this track If Everybody In The World Loved Everybody In The World samples the amazing Della Reese from her song Everybody In The World. The original is pretty darn cool, a political song that deserves to be listened to if you haven’t already and are into anything 60s, jazz, soul or R&B. Della’s version came out in 1969 from the album Black Is Beautiful a pretty darn amazing album. The Stylophonic sampled version out in 2002, almost 10 years now but still sounds fresh. It’s from the very underrated electronic album Man Music Technology. If you haven’t heard of this album it’s certainly worth it as there are some truly original cuts on here that deserve to be played. Key cuts from Man Music Technology are Soulreply, All Nite Long, Way Of Life (Featuring  Shock G & Humpty Hump) and Bizarre Mind.

  25. Good Day Today (Underworld Classic Remix) by David Lynch


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Not only is David Lynch one of my favorite filmmakers of all time he now is one of my favorite electronic musicians? WOW! This cut is amazing. Both the original Good Day Today and the Underworld Classic Remix are top notch full on electronic dance perfection. Underworld I’m sure you remember from the 90s as the electronic maestros they are! The original Good Day Today is the best Daft Punk track that Daft Punk did not produce! There are several remixes released with the single including a Boys Noize Remix, a Diskjokke Remix and the Underworld Classic Remix also there’s I Know the B side for Good Day Today. This is more David Lynch film soundtrack music. Similar to his collaboration with Angelo Badalamenti and Twin Peaks soundtrack material. Although this is big, dark and very bluesy so it also reminds me of The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.There are also several remixes of I Know among which are a Jon Hopkins Remix, a Radcliffe ‘Hedz In Dark’ Mix, Skream’s No So Ravey Remix and a Sasha Remix. All the remixes are highly recommended so go get them from here!

    Wow I’m totally impressed with this collection and can only wait to hear more from Mr. Lynch! More soon please?
