DINA VASS – THE LOVE I HAVE FOR YOU

Dina has an astonishing eight albums worth of material written and waiting to go, but it’s the soul-soaked, ethnic melody of «The Love I Have For You», recorded with production team Full Intention, that has become one of the difining moments of Funky House.

«The Bad Touch» is a song recorded by American alternative hip hop band Bloodhound Gang. It was released in May 1999 as the lead single from their album Hooray for Boobies. It was released a year later, in the US and UK. The song was remixed by many artists including God Lives UnderwaterKMFDM and Eiffel 65. Like much of the Bloodhound Gang’s other music, the song contains a wide variety of sexual colloquialisms. The sleeve for the single features a photo of two zebras in copula.

The song’s video, shot during the summer of 1999, features the band dressed in «MonkeyRat» costumes with oversized ears, in various locations inParis (including the Place de l’Estrapade, Avenue de Saxe, and Champ de Mars), and the Eiffel Tower is visible in many shots.

«Praise You» is a song by English big beat musician Fatboy Slim. It was released as the third single from his second studio album, You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby, in 1999. It reached No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart and No. 36 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States.

The song provided accompaniment to scenes in several movies and TV series, such as Cruel Intentions (and is also included on the soundtrack), Sex and the City (episode 29, «Twenty-Something Girls vs. Thirty-Something Women«), Daria (fifth episode of season three, «Daria Dance Party»), andBuffy the Vampire Slayer (series 3, episode 20, «The Prom»). In an interview in 2001 during a tour in Moscow, Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim) revealed to a local newspaper that the song was dedicated to a cloning regime currently undertaken in the UK, and the clones should be «praised» as normal born humans if the scientists were successful.

Jaydee (born Robin Albers) is a Dutch house music producer and DJ. The original name was Jei D, which Robin Albers (the sole original member) changed to JayDee.

He organized the annual Dutch Mixing Championship five times.

In 1992, under the pseudonym JayDee he released the hit, «Plastic Dreams«, which reached number-one on the US Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. The song, an instrumental, featured a prominent Hammond organ style synthesizer melody, played in a jazzyimprovised manner. «Plastic Dreams» continues to be remixed and re-released today, mostly on unsolicitedwhite labels. The track has made the UK Singles Chart on two occasions; firstly in September 1997 when it reached number 18, and again in January 2004 when it reached number 35.With this big hit, Albers decided to create his own record label, First Impression.

«Encore Une Fois» was not the last time Encore worked with Sash! She sang on the track «Le Soleil Noir», which was included on Sash!’s third album Trilenium. The song was later mixed but unsuccessfully released by Encore.

«Flat Beat» is the title of a song by French house musician Mr. Oizo. It was featured as a bonus track on his debut album Analog Worms Attack. An accompanying music video was released on VHS. The music video features Flat Eric, a puppet, head banging to the track.
