This Friday’s track brings together one of the Belleville Three, the original innovators of Detroit Techno with 2 of the big names of Progressive House in the UK and responsible for the best dance album ever made in my opinion.
Inner City was a collaboration of Kevin Saunders, producer and Paris Grey. Their first single Big Fun was released in 1988 and reached number 8 in the UK, the follow up did even better reaching number 4 and in the end they had 12 top 40 hits in the UK.
Leftfield’s duo of Paul Daley and Neal Barnes were two of the most influential producers on the UK dance scene during the early 90’s and as I said above responsible for an album, Leftism which just blew me away when it was released in 1995. They also produced some of the best remixes, for acts such as React II Rhthym, Stereo MC’s and Inner City amongst others. The duo eventually split in 2002.
The track posted comes from a double 12″ pack of remixes called Testament ’93
Inner City – Hallelujah (Leftfield Glory mix)
