>I Know You’re Down In A River Of Trouble

I can’t get enough of this sort of thing at the moment. A massive R’n’B hit for Sam and Dave from 1966. Horns parping, bass bumping, drums thwacking, and Sam and Dave announcing ‘Hold on! I’m a comin’.

Pump Up The Volume by MARRS is surely one of the greatest singles ever made and a number one single to boot. From 1987 it was a one-off collaboration between members of AR Kane and Colourbox, both Bagging Area favourites, with extra input from djs Dave Dorrell and CJ Mackintosh. Does it sound twenty four years old? I’ve lost track of how things should sound after that amount of time. Made up mainly of samples it still shakes dancefloors- well, the floor in my front room anyway. I don’t know if anyone would play it in a proper club anymore. This is the B-side Anitina (The First Time I See She Dance), made up of an AR Kane track with Colourbox programming the drum machine.
