Track: San Trancisco (Air Tattoo Reconstruction)
Label: Global Grooves
The Air Tattoo Reconstruction mix of San Trancisco was a popular floor filler anthem overseas and a superb piece of progressive house. This well-balanced track features a stomping beat, soaring snyths, and a masterful piano breakdown at the midway point. Nathan Joseph, who produced this remix under the Air Tattoo alias, commented on YouTube:
"...back at the start of my music career I made this remix at Crib Studios for Global Grooves in 1992.... I think they paid me the princely sum of £150 to do it, then calmly flogged about 30,000 copies over the next year countrywide and coined it in. I never got another penny. That's life."
It's too bad he wasn't compensated fairly, but having a classic house track under your belt has to be some consolation, right?
