The track on youtube written "stripped down mix" is NOT the one on this record
it's the same "dub one version" or the one on their bandcamp:

Classic Guerilla release, "Original Mix" is the one for me, progressive house music with an uplifting feel, that just get under your skin. The track just oozes quality with its less is more approach.

So there you have it; "rave" is not a genre so we call it "progressive house". No progress in labelling music imo.

Track 1 (Schmix) is the same as the album version, without the spoken intro.
Track 2 (Dub One) is the same as the "Stripped Down Dub Mix".
Track 3 (Dub Two) is the same as "Schmoodub" on the "Gargantuan" album.
Track 4 (Underworld Mix) is the same as on the other editions.

This is perhaps one of the most satisfying house songs from the early 90's.

It's been a favorite of mine from the first time I heard it. The sound quality is clear, the programing precise, and the feeling this song instills is one of pure joy. House music's goal is to take your emotions to the highest heights and this track does just that!

I first heard it in 1993 on an underground radio show. The DJ's set started off with Schmoo and I thought "well, that's perfect".

I went to Tower Records on Broadway (in NYC) and picked up a copy the next week.
At a gig that weekend I played it and everyone went crazy!
That night someone stole it from me, another DJ, most likely, so I had to go to Vinylmania the weekend after to get another copy. This time I bought 2 copies just to be safe!

One of the best oldskool progressive house tunes ever? Uplifting, non cheesy head music that speaks to your mind and your heart.
If progessive house was this good now, I'd probably buy a lot more of it!
Guerilla records was an absolutely brilliant label, and Spooky, along with DOP and Two Shiny Heads are the best artists on the label in my opinion.
If you love quality house music or head music, then this is a tune you really should have in your collection. At very least it's certainly essential listening. Recommended 100%.

Like Spooky's other progressive house classic, "Little Bullet", "Schmoo" is absolutely irresistable. The infectious looping organ synth riff is instantly catchy, and will definitely get toes tapping wherever you play it. The two Underworld remixes are also both excellent. The Underworld Mix is a thundering industrial techno trance number with a rolling bassline and some Dirty-esque looping piano arpeggios, while the Steppin Razor Mix drops the melody and is almost exclusively percussive. Definitely worth seeking out for fans of early Underworld/Spooky productions.
