re-release of the bizarre inc anthem from 1991 - the climax mix seems to feature lyrics lifted from Cathy Dennis + D-mob's track https://www.discogs.com/Cathy-Dennis-Touch-Me-All-Night-Long/master/99333 which in turn took the lyrics from https://www.discogs.com/Wish-3-Featuring-Fonda-Rae-Touch-Me-All-Night-Long/master/161403

Track A Samples Vocals From Wish Ft. Fonda Rae Tuch Me (All Night Long) I Always Though It Was Cathy Dennis The Vocal Sample Was Taken From That Came Out 1984 Or Thats What I Got Told Back In The Day, This Mix Was Lesser Played But Got More Plays Over Blackpool - Wigan Way At Hacketts, Shaboo, Zone And The Pier, Got Played A Lot Less Compared To The Quadrant Park Mix,

I Myself As A DJ Always Played This Version As It Was Very Different And Refreshing And A Million Miles Away From The Original Mix Plus I've Always LIked The Cathy Dennis Track, She's Such An Amazing Singer Songwriter And Still Righting Songs In 2020 !

Who does the "Quadrant" remixes? Is this an artist? There are a lot of Quadrant mixes on different old school classics. I'm assuming it's based on the club? Any info would be awesome!

I'm A Old Raver From Back In The Day 87-93, Seen Bizarre Inc Many Times Got A Bit Stars Struck lol As One Of My Pa's / Bands Then And Now,
A Long With Altern 8 And N Joi, Own All The Vinyl, And Now At The Ripe Old Age Of 47 i'm Just Getting Into Trying To Make Some Old Skool Style Tracks,

Just Getting Into The Old Analog Rack And Other Analog Gear Akia Samplers Ect, And Was Just Wondering Does Anybody Know The Chord Progression On The Keyboard Of The Old Skool Style Rave Stab / Keyboard Hook On This Track At 1:51 And The Altern 8 / Bizarre Inc / N Joi Tracks, And What Was Used To Create The Keyboard Sound,The One I Do Now They Used Was A Roland 101 + The Standard TR 808, TR 909, TR 303, Its The Synths I'm More Interested In Myself !

Hi! Does anybody know which Playing With Knives version Richard "Humpty" Vission used on his CD Mix Drop That Beat? I've heard almost all versions except that one which I had a chance to purchase back 1995 and left it behind. Can't remember the label!

Absolute stone cold rave classic. A tune that still sounds superb day - killer piano riff, massive breaks and those synth lines combined with a great uplifting vocal and voila a timeless classic. Danced to it at the Hacienda back in the day and still dance to it today, albiet slightly more slowly and less under the influence!

Hi Ian - Quite close with what you are saying but not exactly right. The original demo was more techno based than the finished Quadrant Mix. Dean had recently gone to the Quad for the first time with myself and Rob Bairstow [who became their dancer] also at the Quad that night were a few of our other friends - a girl called Claire Wagg being one of them. It was her who had encouraged us all to go. The place was crazy. I went with Dean to speak to the Dj's and introduce him to them. We initially spoke to James Barton who then introduced us to John Kelly. John flipped out when he met Dean because at the time xstatic and bizarre's theme were both massive tune for him in the Quad. He dropped them later and the place went off - being on the dancefloor when this hapened was a big moment for Dean. When the demo was initially written Dean played it to me and Claire [she also went on to be a dancer with Bizarre Inc with Rob] we both thought it good but was missing that massive magic moment like so many othe anthems in the Quad had - mainly piano riffs. We nagged and mithered him to put piano's in. When Dead and Andy went into the studio inbetween Christmas and NY Eve 1990 they did put the piano staby rif in as well as more of the samples. When I got home from from the Quad on NY day I rang Dean and he played it down the phone to me - I was absolutely blown away it was a complete game changer of a record. They got a handful of test pressings back late Jan 1991 - Dean & Andy had one each they gave one to me [for which I am eternally grateful] the first DJ who got one was going to be John Kelly because of that first visit to the Quad but he wasn't in the club that night so they gave the one copy they took to Mike Knowler. I think the only other two dj's who got TP's were Sasha and Parky
