You would never guess what this sounds like if you only associate Choci with acid techno!!

This IS house music - when it was made it sounded very dated and pedistrian(to me). Particularly when compared to the breakbeat rave stuff Choci was famous for at that time.

But listen to it now or drop it at Hed Kandi (hint hint) and it would tear the roof off.

The production is fantastic.

The recreated vocals are from a Siouxie and the Banshees track ("this is our house-its a happy house") AND the hook is the piano riff from Turntable Orchestra's "you're gonna miss me".

I hated this when Choci made it. Telling him he should not have used the riff and that the record was too boring.

However in the last few years it has become a "secret weapon" for me - one that everyone asks "what was that one?"

As my penance I want the world to revisit this and give it the attention it deserves.

However once the piano riff ends the record fails to build on the energy and it peeters out a bit

A remix anyone??
