West London’s Slip 'n' Slide was one of the UK’s original House imprints. Starting in 1994 with early releases and remixes from artists such as Blaze, Deep Dish, X-Press 2, King Britt, Masters At Work, Kings Of Tomorrow and Restless Soul, it set the benchmark for house music in the UK and gave a platform to artists who then went on to become all-time greats. This series revisits some of Slip ‘n’ Slide’s standout releases, gleefully wading through the entire musical history of the label, blowing the dust off those albums and singles that deserve another lease of life, and a place in your classic house collection.
Kevin Hedge and Josh Milan aka Blaze (one of Slip ‘n’ Slide’s most prolific acts), wrote and produced ‘My Beat’, in 1997 as part of their ‘Basic Blaze’ album. Hedge dons his Palmer Brown alter ego for the vocal duties which, teamed with an up-tempo jazz beat, create this irresistibly foot tapping classic. This release collates the best of the numerous remixes of ‘My Beat’ - some classic and some more obscure - including Chicago legend Derrick Carter with his Disco Circus Mix, Swag’s Spiritual Mix, Frankie Valentine’s Studio 21 Mix plus mixes from Slip ‘n’ Slide regular Solid Groove and Swedish house heroes SUMO.
