Mica Paris - Should've Known Better (1990)

Love this. Perfect on this just about perfect spring day with nary a cloud in the sky.

Track 1 on this treasure-trove playlist I discovered recently on Spotify.

Still cliched and cheesy as all hell, but hyperpop/pc music 10 years before, and much better for that. Proper northern bizniz.

When they say "Hardcore 'til I die" they really mean it, don't they? This stuff has barely changed in 25 years.
The original stuff had breakbeats aplenty, then the breakbeats left and it got boring, then they came back and production standards went up and it got good again.

They are a bit creatively stuck in a corner with it being called 'happy' though.

Yeah, it is not very long lasting at all, whereas some of my favourite Mateo and Matos productions will still hold up. Sometimes less is really more. If it gets given to you all at once...

That being said that's not why I posted it, but just to illustrate that this scene is still going on, with or without its art school discovery.

Yeah and it wasn't supposed to be a knock. There's something to be said for managing to keep to a certain formula and last as long as it has. House is full of tricks, just more subtle. Wrestling with it at the moment with my own stuff. Keeping something interesting for 6 minutes when not much goes on is hard lol

not sure if I can post this here since he might as well be a dissensus lurker
on the other hand he hasn't sounded this funky since raw basics
