The Joy of Six

Maggie & Alan celebrate the sixth birthday of the ever-popular hard house and techno night Joy. We asked the pair to squeeze in to a photobooth with their six most important bits of vinyl, ever!

We Shape Space: ‘The Message Part II' (Bosting Records)

From the progressive house side of Joy, a huge tune for me back in the summer of '94. Martin Luther King plus bagpipes -- an intoxicating combination. (Alan)

Chakra: 'Home' (Earth Music) Summer '97. A wonderful lyric beautifully sung with a production that complements the emotion of the track. (Alan)

Celeda: 'Be Yourself (And No one Else)‘ (Twisted)

This record epitomises a different style of music that I'm currently exploring. It’s dark and sexy but much slower and groovrer than the music usually assooated With Joy. If you come along to the club fairly early, you’ll hear me playing a more American, vocal style of house. (Alan)

Rene Et Gaston: 'Vallée De Larmes' (React)

This IS the track that set tl‘..ii:js oil for me when I began to take Dhnt; senously. Heard it way back ll) "'3‘ .l Eurodance in Paris Totally a-x-xesonie (Maggie)

Brothers In Rhythm: 'Such A Good Feeling’ (Force 8-Way)

One of the classic. Takes me back to the good old days of Joy clown at Calton Studios when clubbing was very much in its infanCy. Fond memories (Maggie)

Fracma: 'Toca Me' (Orbit)

Thought I would bring y0ti bang up to date with one of my favourites at the minute. Madness springs to mind when played out at Joy’s peak moment. (Maggie)
