     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Techno Acid classic It’s Our Future by AWeX gets the remake treatment by Tom Wax one half of AWeX himself and I have to say I love this remake. It’s the perfect update for the times and the sound today. Although I’m pretty partial to the original as I have probably overplayed It’s Our Future and countless other similar Techno Acid cuts from that era for example Access by DJ Misjah & DJ Tim (one of my favorite cuts of all time) of electronic music this remake to the AWeX classic It’s Our Future by Tom Wax is pretty darn cool.

    It’s Our Future became so huge that it was the anthem of the Love Parade in Berlin in 1995!

  2. Free (Teo Moss & Daniel Shems Remix) by Ultra Nate


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I’ve always loved Ultra Nate as she is a true dance/house music artist that didn’t reach the level of some other similar artists like Crystal Waters or CeCe Peniston but she certainly knows what’s good and she’ll go after it. She was signed to Warner Brothers in the earlier part of the 90s then let go then signed to Strictly Rhythm and it’s at Strictly Rhythm where she achieved most of the her huge success with the very popular Free from her Situation: Critical album.

    Free was HUGE in 97 and there were countless remixes of that huge song but the version that caught on was the Mood II Swing remix. Although Full Intentions was also right up there but there was something about the Mood II Swing version that was just a notch better.

    Well good news there are new remixes for Free by Ultra Nate that were released late last year that are worth writing about. For anyone into Free or Ultra Nate or dance/pop music then you will certainly enjoy this excellent remix by Teo Moss & Daniel Shems. As always I”m a big sucker for new remixes of old songs and this Teo Moss & Daniel Shems Remix is quite nice in the package of 2010 remixes for Free by Ultra Nate. There’s also a new remix by Bob Sinclar in the package of new 2010 remixes of Free by Ultra Nate. Check them out below. Original Mood II Swing version and new Teo Moss & Daniel Shems Remix and Bob Sinclar Remix.

  3. Let’s Go To Bed (Milk Mix) by The Cure


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Been a huge fan of The Cure since the mid 80s when I first heard Close To me from their The Head On The Door album. It was only obvious that they would end up remixing their songs in the future. So when Mixed Up came out in 1990 I was quite excited to check it out. Although Mixed Up was not much of a remix album. It was mostly extended versions of their hits from their recent big Disintegration album so it was obvious that Elektra Records put out this remix album Mixed Up. But there are the few remixes on the album like the two most obvious songs that definitely sound like are The Walk (Everything Mix) and In Between Days (Shiver Mix) but the rest of the cuts on Mixed Up are mostly extended versions. Still worthy to own Mixed Up if you don’t have it as longer versions of Cure songs are better than the shorter versions!!! Luckily there was this single for the main song off of Mixed Up, Never Enough which included the best remix that was not on the album Mixed Up. Let’s Go To Bed (Milk Mix) is the best of them all. Now since then countless remixes of Cure songs have been done but at the time the best remix of a Cure song was on not on the remix album! So it was a bit disappointing. Luckily Elektra Records decided to add that remix to the single to Never Enough. Let’s Go To Bed (Milk Mix) is remixed by Mark Saunders who was one of the big remixers from that era. He’s produced and mixed and remixed some of the best UK artists from that era like Depeche Mode, Erasure, Cathy Dennis, The Farm, Coldcut featuring Lisa Stansfield and Siouxsie & The Banshees.

    If you are a fan of The Cure and remixes check out some of these other great remixes of Cure Songs. Blank & Jones remixing A Forest is pretty darn cool! And The Walk (Infusion Mix) is also worth listening to or actually owning. And if you love Robert Smiths vocals and love electronic dance music then certainly you have to know about Junior Jack’s Da Hype which samples Don’t You Want My by Human League. Highly recommended!

    Enjoy!

  4. Afro-Left (Afro-Ride) by Leftfield Is Best Remix Ever?


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    By the time Leftfield’s masterpiece of an electronic dance album Leftism was released in 1995 I had already had the pleasure of hearing several of their earlier singles starting with Not Forgotten all the way back in 1990 to Song Of Life in 1992 to Open Up with John Lydon of Sex Pistols in 1993 just less than 2 years before their amazing debut album Leftism had left a major impression on me and the electronic and dance music culture and since then there has not been as excellent of an album like Leftism. Well there have been but not that many.

    Afro-Left is the second cut off of Leftism and it’s one of those African/electronic tribal tech cuts that’s quite good on it’s own. It’s upbeat but not banging but it’s got a good groove you can get down to. Once you get into the remix Afro-Left (Afro-Ride) is when things really get frenetic brimming with electronic energetic XTC.  Afro-Left (Afro-Ride) is 10 minutes of electronic dance music pleasure! It’s the best remix ever made, I think. The frenetic almost drum and bass style beats don’t pick up fast it starts quite slow and dreamy. The remix builds starting with Djum Djum’s singing and chanting then slowly builds up into the upbeat style that I have fallen in love with. If I had to pick the best remix this would be it and I totally love remixes and hear countless remixes over and over again. But this is it. It’s just the bomb! I was happy to have also heard it on the soundtrack to Wipeout 2097 which featured some of the best electronic and dance cuts around 1995/1996.

    Two years later Leftfield released another excellent album called Rhythm & Stealth. Later disappearing off the face of the earth. Well their still around but nothing has been released from them since then. Maybe something for a 20 year reunion?

    If you can get your hands on Leftism do so. It’s not available as a download on iTunes but Amazon has both the download and the CD so snatch it up. If you can get the double disc CD release even better as you have some great additional remixes or versions of cuts from the amazing Leftism album.

  5. Can You Feel The Passion (Palladium Mix) by Blue Pearl


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    What happened to Blue Pearl? Can You Feel The Passion (Palladium Mix) was one of those electronic techno house tracks that I probably overplayed back in the early 90s. It was on a compilation called Rave ‘Til Dawn and just had really nice bass to blast from your car. I was only 21! Electronic and techno house music was booming from all over the place and I was very happy! So much cool music was being released and this was one them. The song is dark, sexy with lots of moaning and groaning and it has that classic early 90s piano house touch thrown in. It was one of those tracks that combined a lot of rock and guitar elements with the electronic and techno beats with the piano house. So it was quite unique!

    Can You Feel The Passion and Naked In The Rain were the only two hits released by Blue Pearl and once those came out they vanished and never to be heard from again. Although Naked In The Rain has been rereleased with new remixes several times since then I still think their bigger cooler hit was Can You Feel The Passion! What do you think? Below you will find the US Remix version and the Palladium Mix which was on the Rave ‘Til Dawn compilation.

  6. Beachball (Chris Lake Remix) by Nalin & Kane


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Beachball by Nalin & Kane was such a huge trance hit in the mid to late 90s! Especially when it was remixed and repackaged with DJ Icey remixes in 1999. That track blew up everywhere. It was the kind of euphoric trance track that you can take ex on and dance all night to. It was one of my favorites back then as I overplayed it along with 9PM (Til I Come) by ATB and many many others. Trance was big, so big back then and there were some amazing trance releases that I enjoyed. The days of trance faded away in the early 2000′s though and along with that went this great track Beachball by Nalin & Kane. But wait there are new remixes now! This Chris Lake remix takes me back to those party days of the late 90s and relives those times with an excellent update. This thing is quite good as it moves you along to a nice updated big electro beat. I actually really like the Chris Lake style and sound and was happy to have come across this remix of Beachball by Chris Lake. Check out both the original classic and the new Chris Lake remix below. And check out the rest of the 2010 remixes here.

  7. I Like to Move it (Klaas Remix) by Reel 2 Real Featuring The Mad Stuntman


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I Like To Move It by Reel 2 Real featuring The Mad Stuntman was such a huge hit back 1994 for Strictly Rhythm Records. The remix by Erick Morillo and Harry ‘Choo Choo’ Romero was the version the clubs played over and over again and was on countless mix CDs that were released around that time. The song was huge and unfortunately it wasn’t really one of my favorite tracks because I did not really like the Mad Stuntman’s repeated hollering of I Like To Move It… it became too much. Well the new remix is basically the same, same Mad Stuntman hollering and with a new electro style big beat! It’s fun if you’re into this song and want to hear a little change to it. In fact there are many remixes of this track released as part of a big remix package. In fact the Nicola Fasano Mix is probably the best of the lot. Certainly worth checking that one out. Same song just a new beat but a good fun beat! The 2010 Remixes also contains remixes by Sidney Samson and Bart B More as well as the original radio edit and the Harry  ‘Choo Choo’ Romero vs Erick Morillo Remix that put this track on the map! Certainly not one of my favorite tracks but worth writing about for all you to check out if you are a fan of this monster club cut!

  8. 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!”

  9. Live For Today by Cicero & Sylvia Mason-James


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    The Crying Game soundtrack was mostly known for the song The Crying Game by Boy George. It was a whole more about that album that most folks don’t know. The album was produced by the Pet Shop Boys and included other great songs which included a remake of the Shannon 80s hit Let The Music Play by Carroll Thompson and of course two awesome versions of a little known act called Cicero with their song Live For Today sung by Sylvia Mason-James. Absolutely love the vocals by Sylvia here.

    If you like Pet Shop Boys or anything synth pop from the late 80s and early 90s then you will certainly love this song by Cicero. I think they are definitely worth discovering as not much is known about Cicero. In the early 90s Cicero released an album called Future Boy but it failed to chart anywhere. Still though this song Live For Today produced by Pet Shop Boys is quite strong.

    The Orchestral version is the more synthed up version whereas the Gospel version is more laidback and sort of trip-hoppy. Check them out below.

  10. Jerome Isma-Ae Remakes The OT Quartet’s Hold That Sucker Down!


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Rollo (of Faithless) and Rob D (of Clubbed To Death fame – you know featured on The Matrix Soundtrack) are the O.T. Quartet. They produced this awesome track back in the mid 90s which was a huge hit back then in the club world. It has the trademark Rollo/Cheeky Records sound and I loved it back then and I still love it now. It’s a classic masterpiece that doesn’t get boring after countless listens. I’m glad Jerome Isma-Ae remade it and brought the track into the sound of now at clubs. It’s fun and I dig it and I’m sure you’ll dig it too if you like anything by Faithless or Rollo you will certainly dig Hold That Sucker Down by Jerome Isma-Ae. And if you don’t know anything about The O.T. Quartet then this will certainly be the way for you to discover the great Cheeky Records and Rollo sound. Check out both original and the remake below.

  11. Daft Punk’s Da Funk Remade by Naif Theme


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    90s classic breakthrough track for Daft Punk is remade here by Naif Theme. I’m a big fan of the original and a very defining moment for dance music so it took me several listens to this remake by Naif Theme before I got into it but it certainly works. It’s got the sound of now certainly, the more electro meets rock guitar sort of thing that’s been overdone as of late!

  12. Electrotheque Cover Hot Chocolate With Every 1′s A Winner


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This one’s a fun remake cover track of the popular disco classic Every 1′s A Winner by Hot Chocolate. Electrotheque keep the spirit of the original but they add a funky house robotic groove to their version which somewhat similar to Daft Punks sound which is pretty darn cool. Most of the vocals are removed in this remake except for quiet robotic vox thrown in all of over the place. I don’t remember hearing this back when it came out in 1998 (even though I was buying up all kinds of music back then) when dance music was all over the place but I discovered on a compilation about 5 years ago and couldn’t believe that I had missed such a cool remake. Disco songs were being remixed and remade all over the place in the 90s so for some odd reason I had missed this but glad I discovered it. Even though I like You Sexy Thing, Hot Chocolates bigger hit this song in my book is the stronger of the two and this remix/remake by Electrotheque works wonders. Enjoy both versions below.

    Les-Rythmes-Digitales-darkdancer

    The now classic Les Rhthmes Digitales album Darkdancer contains many samples and covers on several of the tracks. It’s a great album and I still come back to it and listen to several of the cuts on it. One of the better uses of samples music is this track From: Disco To: Disco which contains the sample of the song with  the same name From: Disco To: Disco by Whirlpool Productions.  I don’t know much about Whirlpool Productions but I know the original From: Disco To: Disco was released in 1996.

  15. It’s Not Over Yet by Klaxons


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I love this … I love the fact that a punk/rock/dance band has taken a electronic/dance song from the 90s and totally made it their own. It’s perfection. I remember listening to Not Over Yet by Grace back in the mid 90′s over and over again. The various remixes by BT, Danny Tenaglia, Dancing Divas and etc. This track was released off of Paul Oakenfold’s Perfecto label – later on Reprise here in the states. And I remember listening to the many reincarnations of Not Over Yet – the tranced up versions that came out in 1999 as Planet Perfecto Presents Grace. Those were quite nice.

    But this Klaxons version is perfect if not excellent. I love the guitars and the vocals – they are all perfectly blended together. Don’t you think? Check out the video as well.

    This is off of their Myths Of The Near Future album.
