Various ‎– The Specialist: The Remixes (Promo 12″)


Mmmmm the 1990’s was a decade of faceless dance music for me, particularly of the House variety. There isn’t much on this blog but I do occasionally like to shake a tail feather and so out comes this mini LP of hot house stuff from 1994; bizarrely featuring on the film “The Specialist” with Sly Stallone and Sharon Stone. Moreover it was produced Emilio Estefan, Jr. (Mr. Miami Sound Machine) So we get straight 4 to the Floor, piano house track (with the considerable vocal power of Donna Allen) “Real” remixed by David Morales. Miami Sound Machine have an older track , “Jambala”, remixed in a Tribal House style by Johnny Vicious. “Shower Me With Love” by Lagaylia gets a slower R n B mix by E-Smoove. Beats are turned up with a more ravey, house mix by The Spike Boys of “Love Is The Thing” with the return of Donna Allen. (Hands In The Air!) Finally we get a track of pure latin house from Cheito mixed by Ralphi Rosario.
