THROWBACK THURSDAYS: ALL THAT I WANT IS AN ACE OF BASE REUNION

NEW MUSIC MONDAYS: VOL. 010

One night, back in 1997, I found myself at a rave, in Toronto,  where the talk amongst seemingly all of the thousands in attendance was that DAVID BOWIE was hanging out at the bar. He was on tour, supporting his DRUM N BASS influenced EARTHLING album, and I guess he was…

THROWBACK THURSDAYS: CUZ I’M A JUNGLE BROTHER

Normally, any REMIX relies, heavily, on the appeal of the original song, as far as it’s worth is concerned. It’s only on rare occasions that, through it’s re-imagining, a remix is able to insurmountably overshadow the original. In 1996, the DRUM N BASS world saw one such instance.

JUNGLE BROTHERS – JUNGLE BROTHER (TRUE…

There are certain songs that can be played to pretty much any crowd and get a good reaction. For different reasons, these songs are just likeable, period. There’s something about them that resonates with human beings. It remains a mystery what it is, mechanically, that makes these songs work so well, but there’s no denying…
