Ride on Time

Black Box

1989 (Single), 1990 (LP)


Another sample-heavy song, this time taking vocals from an a cappella mix of Loleatta Holloway’s 1980 single Love Senstation. Along with an Italian House backing track, the result was a pop dance hit, which still sounds great to me, thirty years on.


Something Good ’08

Utah Saints

1992 (single), 1993 (LP), 2008 (remix)


This record takes a sample from Kate Bush’s single Cloudbusting, and builds a new song around it - though my preferred version is the 2008 remix that replaces Bush’s vocal with a re-recorded part.
