Stylus Music dropped Ware’s The House in 1989.
20 Monster House Cuts and a number of rare 7″ mixes that are tricky to find elsewhere.
Boots zipped and ready to dance: FPI Project roll back the years with a top notch cover of Lamont Dozier’s Back To My Roots. Rich In Paradise and Paolo Dini help out. Feel the fever with the Mixmaster’s Grand Piano which samples Loletta Holloway and Joe Tex; a neat sum-up of the Balearic sounds of ’89. He pops straight afterwards as DJ Lelewel and Magic Atto II. Neatly edited house. Pass the joint to Impedance and watch ’em drop a bomb and a dirty bassline with a super remix of Tainted Love by Dizzie Dee. And almost unknown to this day are Skeletor with the menacing Greaskulls mix of Do You Want Me.
Tyrone Payton’s garage mob Intense give us the soulful pump of Let The Rain Come Down. A champion record. Belguim’s new beaters 101 are more well known for Rock To The Beat but the stop/start/slowdown Just As Long As I Got You is an ace three minutes of edgy grooves. Let us drift with Adonte and Dreams, the essence of chilled deep house.
All Hail The Queen. With Monie Love and The 45 King of the beats.
“”Who said the ladies couldn’t make it, you must be blind”.
The rhymes continue with Redhead Kingpin and The FBI. Superbad Superslick is produced by Teddy Riley but the magic touch is missing on this rather lumpen dumpling.
Patti Day – the pirates’ pin-up. Right Before My Eyes was a floor-filler and killed the squats of the capital city. Now for the spine shivers; Debbie Malone’s Rescue Me was of the finest sunrise anthems. Freedom to dance, rave in the square, double dropping doves to an epic bassline. An older skool now, Sybil’s Let Yourself Go is an ’87 child but now comes with a harder edge. The Message Of Love from Arthur Baker and The Backbeat Disciples is love thy fellow clubber stuff; a loved-up gurner for Southfork and others. The good vibrations are spread even further with Paul Simpson / Simphonia’s I Can’t Over Your Love. Merge with My Bloody Valentine’s Off Your Face.
“The Theme gave bass tones a whole new meaning”. [Music Mag]
They reckoned that Unique 3 created the best track you could hear in the Hacienda. Bleep Bleep. Also compiled on the Warp Classics set many years on. Next is the hypnotic Security from Miami’s Beat Club. Proper dark electro produced by Bernard Sumner. Contrast with the upfront Let There Be House from Deskee. The happy house vibe continues with JD’s Good Vibrations. Lastly we can wiggle it as 2 In A Room slap on the demented warehouse breaker Somebody In The House Say Yeah. Bring that beat back, turn up those sirens. Rewind.
“Dreams are endless”. (Adonte – Dreams)
Impedance – Tainted Love (Dizzie Dee Mix)
Unique 3 – The Theme
Debbie Malone – Rescue Me
Lest we forget
The Beat Club – Security

My favourite house album from 1989. I lost my copy, so bought it again on cd back in 2000 ….then lost that again. Finally managed to get hold of another copy on ebay in 2016.
It takes me back to those halcyon days. It used to end up on a permanent loop in the early hours of the weekend
Thanks Jay – same here, total banger. Finished school in 1989 so started clubbing in earnest that summer. This was the soundtrack to many parties and sessions for quite a long time afterwards.
