My sister spilt candle wax on this whilst trying to light a cigarette over the decks at a party in Camden whilst it was playin! We also blew a speaker and and the police came to temporarily calm it all down. All in all, what you would class as a thoroughly good night. Wax still on wax 20 years on but you can always hear the quality shining through regardless.

fantastic piece of old style funky house always was a floor filler for me.

This is a great, very signature St. Germain release. Side a goes very deep, while side b keeps it more upbeat. If Side a is about the bass, then side b is more about the treble, if you know what I mean. The vocals are incredible, very catchy and instantly recognisable as this seminal St. Germain track. The songs on this 12" are a great mix of both Boulevard and Tourist styles.
For djs this track is perfect. Both cuts on side a have the vocals starting the track almost acapella. The crescendo is really well done and from there the track just rolls on out.
Classic french house.

The version of the brilliant Paul Saunders (the man of the seminal, sophisticated and dark elements) for this classic is really worthy of mentioning. With lovely synth timbers and sweet pianos, the track has also fine windy effects and, of course, Wax Doctor's typical atmospheric touch. A real spot of ground for the World of break beats, and specially Drum & Bass. It seems that Saunders changed his artistic directions and became a painter for quite some time now - if it's true, I'm sure he must have kept the same philosophy on his paintings...
