as pointed out by Man Like Wise at Dissensus, a 2step-versus-RandBee 12 inch i really should have included in the Red Bull thing

in fact this was actually on the tip of my brain the whole time of doing the piece, just couldn't dredge it fully from memory -- i have the 12 inch or now i think of it, it's a 10 inch, right? -- another factor is never have known who did the r&beee originals being heisted here and on the flipside



ooh sooooooooo fluttery and flittery the diva-gas vox on that one

flipside tune is not quite as gorgeous but still ace



he done a bunch of others, this bloke Mike Millrain







Why Club and DJ Culture Sucks in '12: The Lost Promise of the Late 80s and Early 90s

a piece by dj King Pigeon at Eurotrash or Eurotrash?

problem #5 he identifies as 

"Too much alcohol, not enough drugs"
... The soundtrack of the warehouse rave was acid house and hardcore techno, but inside the heads of many ravers an aural soundtrack scored by drugs—particularly ecstasy, and (despite the name of the movement, to a lesser extent) acid—played an accompanying melody....
Today's club drug of choice is Vodka Red Bull. As comedian Bill Hicks famously pointed out, "You're in a ballgame or a concert and someone's really violent and aggressive and obnoxious. Are they drunk or smoking pot?" Swap "on ecstasy" or "on acid" for "smoking pot" and the point remains the same."
