Italo House Tune #6 and A Deep Dark Pit

As I mentioned earlier, I’ve not long climbed out of a long illness – Boxing Day ’til the end of January. I’ve never been so ill for so long. It all started with a cold, but got progressively worse, to the point were I couldn’t even drink water. I lost interest in everything and found it very hard to get out of bed – real weird head-messing stuff.  I’m not one for going to the doctors, and would rather try to cure myself, but I succumbed, unfortunately. The doctor couldn’t explain the problem, but diagnosed Bronchitis. As Steve Cobby said – ‘Proper Bucking Broncho’ (try saying that when you’ve had a few).  It took until the end of February to feel 100%, so Christmas/New Year passed me by. I was also booked to DJ at this…

but I had to cancel, which was a bummer, as I was really looking forward to playing with a load of Brummie DJ pals and spinning a Breathless/Snobs set, with a few fresh platters thrown in. I started digging-in-the-crates early December, so that I was sort of prepared with a loose set of gems, and whilst diggin’ I unearthed this great moody Italo House track, which still hits the mark for me….

Choon #12

Just experienced my first House Music club in a very long time. Returned home and dug out this beautiful Deep House tune…

I Am Excited!

Since hearing this track again, on my Breathless mix, I’ve been searching high and low for it here at Dicky Towers, and whilst searching through a few boxes, for a specific Halloween track to post, and failing miserably in that department, I stumbled on this killa track. It’s the perfect club track with all the right ingredients in the right places. And I get goose bumps when that keyboard line drops at 1:48!

There was a lot of cheese coming out of Italia around this period (my record collection can vouch for this) but certain Italian producers were more than able to hold their own and produce cuts of sublime deepness.


“Alright Richard, Only recently came across your blog which is great as i was a regular at breathless many moons ago and really cherish those times. Anyway i wondered if you would put the Rapina Brothers ‘Set Me Free’ up on your blog if you can find it? I used to love it when you dropped this tune and have never managed to find it 20 years! all the best and thanks for the memories”

A Choon, or Not A Choon, that is the question:

This track was played a lot at Breathless, back in 91, but I’m not sure if it stands the test of time. Part of me still likes it (maybe the good memories have something to do with that), but another part of me is saying, I wouldn’t play this out anymore. I’m not even sure what genre to put it into. Balearic? Anyway, what do you lot think? Answers in the comments section, please.
