It's Friday . . . Let's Dance

Today's track comes from an extremely prolific American producer who also inadvertently invented a new genre of dance music, Speed Garage with his remix of Sugar Is Sweeter by CJ Bolland. However he had been producing and releasing records since 1992.

It was a couple of years later that Witch Doktor was released on Stricktly Rhythm records and people started to take notice.

I just love the bit when the klaxon breaks in for the first time. The first time I heard that in a club I nearly shat myself.

Have a good weekend people.

Armand Van Helden - Witch Docktor

Lol at The Dirk.

I've got a big soft spot for Van Helden, there are a lot of tunes over the years that I really like that he's had a hand in. Hated the CJ Bolland remix mind, but that's because I loved the original.

My fave, apart from You Don't Know Me though is the Dizzee single. Bonkers was number one the week my boy was born. Will always make me think of taking him home for the first time.

Having a Pride. Still feeling a tad fuzzy from red wine last night. I likes it, but it don't like me.

Will rally later, I'm sure.

It's a good record but he always got on my nerves for some reason.
