I do just love a bit of old school Garage House…

Out of all the mixes of this golden track, that famous vocal sounding as fresh as the day it was recorded, this is my favourite.

There’s so much bounce here that you could chuck this record off the Shard and it would come straight back (don’t try it, the vinyl is vintage and precious…)

The drums are fast and snappy, hurling the track onward at a furious pace.

The bassline is no slouch either, hopping madly over the beat like a wasp at a picnic.

The guitar, organ and vocals are the elements which make this song something of a garage house symphony. Simple yet soulful touches which condense into pure magic when the piano strikes up too.

This mix of “Pick Me Up” was released in 1995 with 3 others on Ice Cream Records.
