I have been buying what we now call oldskool house music since 1992 and been a DJ ever since. I love all kinds of music and am still learning about new tracks and mixes on a daily basis and of course still filling the gaps in my collection. In the early 00's I sold over 4000 records on ebay with the same user name (99.8% positive feedback).

My collection is on Discogs - I am now looking at selling a large proportion of my records. All have been lovingly kept safe and sound over the last 25 years.

Check out one of my piano, breakbeat hardcore mixes on you tube:

Its all about the Seamus Haji mix for me. A DJ that Ive only just come across recently, he has knocked out a load of Hed Kandi type tunes, most average but there have been some great remixes (Axwell, Dajae, take me away) and this is the pinnacle. Its so ... See full review

Back in 92 all I was buying was House and Breakbeat/Hardcore, somehow I stumbled across this 12". It blew me away, fantastic beautiful soulful vocals by ms Girault, so smooth and moving almost orgasmic!! Still sounds so fresh today (2018) a classic!

I think I have to try and add some balance to some suprisingly poor recent reviews of this seminal mix. I raved in the 90's, we had mixtapes of our favorite DJ's (usually poorly recorded with no track listings). Imagine that Millenials?

I remember buying my copy from Lucky Spin on the Kings Road, set at the back of some sort of clothes shop. I agree with most, its head and shoulders above the remix with the cleared sample and one of the best from 93. Now I wish I bought a second copy!!

I cannot literally believe you can pick this masterpeace up for less that a £1. If you love prog house, the Sasha / disgweed sound or just love house music buy it! (and Im not even selling a copy) you will not be disappointed.

Fantastic Axwell mixes of Adele "hometown glory" Lovely use of her vocal, just lets it play out with a nice uplifting synth, piano hook. This is the vinyl only copy released as A Del (with a picture of Del Trotter on the lable to throw you off the scent).

Again Axwell delivers again, yes its a bit of a blantant rip off, very similar in sttructure to the credited 80's classic from Bronski Beat, but as all top tunes its so simple but so effective, stick to the original mix. Its all you need.
