This earnest little stomper - the Delirious DJ remix of the already-excellent 'Mooncat' - embodies the distinctive sound of UK house music in '94 - '95. Emerging before hard house became synonymous with the 'boink boink boink' hi-NRG style championed latterly by Tony de Vit, Mooncat's freight-train percussion and bouncing bass are driven by a relentlessly surging piano-line, ably demonstrating just how effective piano can be in a heads-up chugger. Throw in some restrained acidic squelching, add a vocal sample that used to make light shine out of the top of my head back when this was played in Sin City in Stoke and you have a gloriously strident tune that appeals as much to the sly grin as to the big stupid smile - dark and intensely euphoric.
