It's Friday . . . Let's Dance
Today's Guerilla classic puts the emphasis directly on the house aside of things moving away from the more progressive sounds usually released by the label. The track is also not that typical of the sounds produced by React 2 Rhythm. The band are probably best known for their track Intoxication which came with two absolutely cracking remixes from a little known duo at the time who would go on to be the epitome of Progressive house, Leftfield.
React to Rhythm had been together since the late 80s but it was 1990 before they released their first single, "Rhythm Addiction" on William Orbit's Guerilla label. An album and four further 12" singles would be released before they split in 1992.
All Or Nothing, as I said is probably the most out and out housey thing produced by the band this could have something to do with the main mix being rejigged by a relatively unknown Miami dj, Danny Tenaglia , who like Leftfield would go on to be a household name amongst House heads remixing a myriad of artists from A Guy Called Gerald to Yoko Ono.
This weekend I will be mostly relaxing as Airdrie are now free of the battle for League One survival. I will however be willing them on to another victory over Stenhousemuir to make it seven games unbeaten on the bounce and only one defeat in 15 matches. Quite a feat when compared to the team's form up until the end of January. Then it's off into Glasgow with L for an overnight to commiserate on turning 45.
Have a good weekend people
