The Units – Tight Fit (Klein & MBO Remix)

•December 1, 2011 • Leave a Comment

My favorite cut off of The Units’ remix compilation, Connections, released a few months ago.  Proto-house/italo pioneers Klein and M.B.O. deliver an excellent remix of “Tight Fit”, staying true to their early 80s futuristic sound.  The whole compilation goes hard and is definitely worth checking out.

Fierce Ruling Diva – You Gotta Believe (Moby’s Sweet Mix)

Moby’s amazing piano driven deep house remix of Fierce Ruling Diva’s classic “You Gotta Believe”.  I’ve heard at least 20 remixes/tracks that sample this song, and this my version is pretty much my favorite (with Johnny Vicious’ “Believe This” in a close second).

Hysterix – Talk To Me (Sasha’s Full Master)

MAJOR heat from Sasha released on Deconstruction in 1994.  Included on his and Digweed’s legendary Renaissance Mix, this track is easily one of my favorite UK house tracks of the 90s.  Also included is my peaktime edit of the track. Enjoy.

Bryan Ferry – Kiss & Tell (Dance Remix)

I’ve been doing quite a few rock/new wave nights over the last month, so I’ve definitely been getting that area of my library in check.  Here is one of my favorite 80s pop/new wave cuts I recently re-discovered. Easily in my top 10 Brian Ferry/Roxy Music related tracks of all time.

Pretty much the only big song from this short lived Detroit group.  Get into it.

Such a track.   I forgot how hard this one goes, but luckily Stupid Human released an excellent take on it a couple months ago which reminded me.  You can check out their edit here:
