Now whilst I may now be getting into the older disco sounds, I thought a mention of my favourite track when I was 18, back in 1998, may be in order too.
This was the time when to hear the very latest house music, you had to listen to Pete Tong or Danny Rampling on Radio 1, and the first time I heard it was when the Miami Winter Music Conference still had musical relevance – this was before music was shared over the internet.
Between 1994 and 1996, I mainly listened to jungle or drum’n’bass as it later became known/transformed into. I then went through the speed garage fad. I also had a soft spot sometimes for US garage played by Graeme Park.
But this was something new.
I first heard Danny Rampling play it in April that year, very shortly after the Winter Music Conference. I used to love the tune, I played it over and over. It really got me back into house music for the first time since probably 1992/93 (as it was either the girlie handbag variety or dull and progressive) and was the most played song in Ibiza, the very first time I visited. And to think that I went clubbing almost every night for 2 weeks back then!
