Faith have asked me to compile a bunch of charts for their next issue, one of which is OG DJH classics from the first messageboard. I’ve got a memory like a sieve, but I know there were loads of tracks discovered and championed on here originally. Anyone remember any of them?
Boutade - mugwump
Roscoe (beyond wizzards sleeve mix) - mid lake
Can’t help it - tangoterje
Inspector Norse - Todd Terje
Willowman - willowman
Invisible college - gatto Frito
I’m scared - Mark E
This sort of thing?
Yes to all of these. Need to look at my purchases from 2007-2010 as much of that would be DJH-influenced. Also I’d imagine that the early Furtive Fifties would be a good indicator…?
Surely The Chaplin Band!
Dennis Parker - Like An Eagle
Stars N Bars … Phil & Friends Band … Fire In My Heart
Them were’t days when young Terje Olsen were but an ‘umble astrophysics student …
“Mystery man”, and “IC Love affair”
Not sure if this is what you are looking for but DJH had a lot to do with my purchases from Claremont56, Milky Disco, Future Disco, Sleazy Beats and Razor Sharp Edits.
Javaroo - Breakin’ In and by default, its evil twin David Naughton Makin’ It. The latter could probably stay off the list though.
Maelstrom’s edit of Muira, certainly a big discussion topic.
Laughing Light of Plenty - The Rose
Every Quiet Village single and then the LP.
Woolfy - Odyssey
LCD - 45:33
Codek - Tim Toum
Greg Wilson - I Was A Teenage DJ
Primal Scream - Uptown (Weatherall mix)
I remember learning about the AB and Bocaccio classics that were the roots of New Beat and Goan Trance, but not sure if they would count as “championed discoveries”.
A few more I remember being championed on the old DJH are
Lindstrøm and Christabelle - Music (In My Mind)
Lindstrøm - Another Station (Todd Terje Remix)
Reverso 68 - Piece Together & Tokyo Disko
Quiet Village Project - Can’t Be Beat / Pillow Talk
Antena - Camino Del Sol (Joakim remixe)
Alice Smith - Love Endeavor (Maurice Fulton)
Kathy Diamond - All Woman (Maurice Fulton)
A Mountain Of One - EP1 & EP2
Firecracker EP1 & EP 3
Hot chocolate - Cadillac (that Revenge edit)
Dølle Jølle – Balearic Incarnation (my fav Terje track)
Visti And Meyland* – Stars (Rodion And Mammarella Mix)
Greg Wilson - Two sides of sympathy
No doubt countless others but those were the ones that immediately sprang to mind as to having classic DJH status. Great memories!
Loads of great suggestions here, thanks! Keep 'em coming.
The Idjuts remix of Tantra - A Place Called Tarot.
The thread I remember best was something like, “The Last Song for DJH.” Three I discovered:
“Life is a Song worth Singing” - Johnny Mathis
“When I’m with You” - Sparks
“Bitter with the Sweet” - Carole King
Voyage - I Love You Dancer
I recall a fair bit of chatter about: Amerie - One Thing
Byron - Too Much … …
40 Thieves - Don’t Turn It Off
