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.
One of the standout tracks taken from ‘Basic Blaze’, New Jersey duo Blaze’s first album for Slip ‘n’ Slide, ‘Wishing You Were Here’ is pure liquid disco house. Who better to remix the track than British DJ and producer Joey Negro, who bring out even more disco flavour with a little help from Taka Boom (American female R&B and dance music singer, and sister of Chaka Khan). This package also includes 20/20 Vision’s ‘A Vision of Jane Mix’ and ‘Transvision Dub’ and versions.
