    Excellent house track which got not only sampled by The Prodigy : No Good ( start the dance ) but also by Search & Destroy an alias from Martin Damm .

    Once again it proofs that some songs are there to stay forever and not to be forgotten .

    Huge house track on the London scene and environs scene in what was the last of the years of "warehouse". I need to give a big mention for the Hacienda too - they loved this, particularly the duo Graeme Park and Mike Pickering. It was often pitched up, a bit of a higher speed, so the Prodigy's sampling track in 94 was really a tribute looking back to these exciting club music times.

    The London area scene and musical style warehouse were partly so named from the buzz of the kinds of earlier R&B club music from Frankie Knuckle's old Chicago club. (It had been going from 79 to around 85 or so). Mostly though here in the UK back in 85-87 the underground warehouse gatherings were the only places to get down to early house, so the term "warehouse music" was also just named after the big, old places the music was heard in.

    Others, and myself, will still call some earlier house tracks "warehouse" tracks because of this. Warehouse scene - warehouse music.

    It was the same year the Chicago term house started really to take off, and the year before the term rave started to go big (1988).

    The terms warehouse music & house music were pretty interchangeable in the UK until the warehouse term dropped off the radar by early 88.

    I suppose as you might hear in this track, warehouse was somewhere between the mid-80s soul club scene and the emerging house scene which was beginning to have a good deal of techno involved.

    There were basically more or less still no regular, named clubs in London, even playing the more well-known tracks like this, the venue club scene had been so poor. So you needed to try to discern where there were the underground warehouse gatherings going on by word of mouth in 87.

    Things weren't at the "it's so amazing, there's a revolution going on, tell everyone & your gran" stage of 1988 and onwards and in 86-87 it could often be impossible & frustrating to find anything . Still in 87, though a clear early house scene was definitely catching on and growing, there could still be weeks of the question, "Am I missing something great or is actually nothing going on?!"

    It was summer 87 when the field raves started in any numbers, still not many and usually not huge numbers of people there. By the next summer they were everywhere and growing over the coming few years. By winter 88-89 the raves went on outdoors through the cold months also, week-in, week-out including many weekdays. Too good to shut down for the cold season, especially when you could keep yourself warm, down to a jumper in half an hour and even t-shirt within an hour or two.

    The promise and innocence and energy of 87, this track and others though, I will always remember.
