As soon as this dropped it was a hands in the air moment !
Absolute classic with its "Sweet Sensation" vocal, simple break-beat loops and that piano line !
A lot of happy memories associated with this tune,,,

Info from artist
"We wrote it about 20 minutes after we finished mixing our first album ‘Frequency’ on a Saturday afternoon in our home studio and knew instantly we had something a bit special.
It was like nothing we had ever written before, it all happened while the 3 of us were just jamming on a Roland Juno II a Juno 106 Synth and a Roland Sampler. We had the mixer set up from ‘Summer Of 89’ so everything sounded just so damn good, it was like a breath of fresh air with the strings and pianos. You don’t make records like that on purpose, they just happen when lots feelings collide at the right time. We arranged and mixed it in about 2 hours, put it on a DAT and sent it off with the rest of the 'Frequency' Album on the Monday. Within 6 weeks Stu Allan was playing it on Key 103 and then it just kept growing and growing. It will always be that special tune for the three of us"

Its 1991. Its August. Its 6am. You are stood in the middle of a field but you cant remember where. The sun is just rising up above the skyline and as the first rays lick your exhausted body you hear boomin out of the sound system "my Sweet Sensation...tion...tion" and as you look around you see 30,000 people just explode and go f@ckin mental. Who needs e's when you have Shades of Rhythm. Legendary.
