It's The Friday Before Christmas . . . Let's Dance
By the time you are reading this hopefully I will be slightly inebriated after having spent the morning getting L's Christmas presents up the West End and then meeting a good friend for drinks, sorry lunch and basically having an afternoon sesh.
I always used to like going out dancing on the Friday before Christmas, so I thought that the occasion warranted a huge track but all of the ones that I was thinking of have all been posted before, so excuse me a bit of repetition, well it is Christmas after all.
Or so I thought, I was sure that I had posted today's track before, after all it is one of the seminal Techno/house tracks. But apparently I had somehow overlooked it.
Strings of Life is the work of Derrick May and was first released on Transmat in 1987 and has been re-released a few times since in various mixes. The version posted is the Flam-Boy-Ant mix from the original release. It is strange that a tune with no bass line should become so important in the evolution of Techno.
Have a good weekend but remember it's going to be a long week so pace yourself.
