The Source and Candi Staton – You Got The Love (Eren’s Bootleg Mix) (1991)

Attentive followers of this blog will have been waiting on tenterhooks for this post following the big build up I gave it on the last one (see here)

The original version of this track came out in 1986 and was a pretty straightforward disco release.

House genius is achieved by taking Candi Staton’s vocals and fusing them onto Frankie Knuckles/Jamie Principle’s wonderful “Your Love” single from 1986/87.

It’s the “Eren’s Bootleg Mix” which takes a couple of good tracks into the stratosphere …

      Insomnia by Faithless and Sandstorm by Darude. All of them have a proper slower quieter bit before the bass kicks in and it all goes mental on the dancefloor.

        But I reserve the right to change my mind based on the day of the week, what club I went to last, how many drinks I’ve had, etc. etc. etc.

    For instance, there’s an amazing trancey KLFey mix of Headhunter by Front 242 that could sneak in there, but, I’ve only heard it in two places – Feet First, a club night run by Eko and Jonathan in London in the ’80s-early ’90s; and being played behind the bar at the Green Dragon pub in Brighton. If I ever find it again it could replace Sandstorm in that top 3.
