Sweet Headache 004: “Pumpin’ House”

Here’s a little warm-up for the weekend: A pumpin’, pushin’ and ass-kickin’ mix full of House music. I included both remixes of classics as well as a few fresh tracks. Enjoy!

Tracklist:

  1. Strip Steve – Breakin’
  2. Olaf Basoski – NGOM
  3. 45th Street – Adrenalin
  4. Gimbal&Sinan – Take Off
  5. Roger Prinz – Freak Like (Ron Paul Mix)
  6. Urban Shakedown & Micky Finn – Some Justice (Super Mal Remix)
  7. Soul Of Man – Dirty Waltzer (Trouble Soup!! Remix)
  8. Slyde – We Love It
  9. The Ting Tings – That’s Not My Name (Soul Seekerz Dirty Dub Vox Mix)
  10. Mihell – Don’t Mean Shit
  11. Powers That Be – Planet Rock
I would like to mention some real dance classics that I included as remixes in this mix. First of all, there’s Usura’s “Open Your Mind” mashed up into 45th Street – “Adrenalin”. It appears they haven’t released much of relevance apart from that track, but I still dig this!

Then there’s “Some Justice” by Urban Shakedown & Mickey Finn. If you listen to the original, it might be a little hard to understand what’s so great about this track. However, this particular style (Breakbeat House / early UK Hardcore / Oldschool Breaks) was pretty popular in the early 90s and also got me hooked to electronic music. I am still glad that there is a more recent remix though – I guess it’s a “you had to be there”-thing.

There are also a few fresh tracks in here, such as the awesome “Dancin'” by Strip Steve or “Take Off” by a fabulous newcomer duo called Gimbal&Sinan . I really like their productions for being very playful and well-produced, and I think they have a lot of potential.
