All this week, I’m going to be delving into the world of house music dubs. An essential inclusion in the sets of house DJs in the 1980s and 90s, dubs have fallen out of favour in recent years. This series is dedicated to exploring some of the best ones. We conclude tomorrow – day 5 of 6 goes to this one from 1994.
Hard as it is to believe, but there was once a time when Michelle Weeks was a relative unknown. This was one of her first outings on vinyl, and her talent was apparent even then. Another talent at the time (and still do today) is StoneBridge. The man, real name Sten Hallstrom, has several hundred remixes to his name – and like many 90s house heads, he knew all too well how to do an excellent dub.
The vocal cut-ups, the stabby little chords, those drums… there’s nothing bad I could say about this one.
