    Yo, sorry everyone I been tied up today. HUGE thank for the all the suggestions, but sadly none of them are the track. I thought I was staring to lose my mind when a couple of Uni mates on facebook - yup started the same frantic search u there too - told me they knew exactly the track I was on about, and even remember me playing it all the time. It's now driving them all nuts as well.

    Recap on the facts.

    1. it's circa 1995/96
    2. It was never released on a main stream label
    3. It's about 128bpm
    4. Very uplifting, anthem like house track...the closest sounding track is Jam and Spoons Journey to Anyoona.
    5. The most noticable part of the track is in the breakdown when a sample fades in with a choir of kids (think 9 - 13 year olds) singing an african sounding chant (NB not tribal) on loop. Phonetically is sounds like "ohve-e-e-ya, ohveya nam-a-na".
    6. This then gets backed up by big room strings and piano chords before the track kicks back in for a huge finish.

    It's not deep or triba at all; just good old fashioned, uplifting 90's house. You could almost call it progressive but don't get cofused with what Oakenfold etc...were doing back then.

    Sorry this has proven to be such a wind up. But there's been an epic playlist suggested so far!

    Thanks again for all your help

    /Sings this to herself repeatedly :mad::D

    Are you absolutely sure it's not Transglobal Underground Templehead? :confused: I NEED it to be that :D

    ChristianB Are you really Favelado on an epic wind up? :hmm:

    Anyway...let's just add this to the epic list of tracks in this thread even though it isn't the one you are looking for. :)

    the vocal you're describing makes me think of the chant in 'going back to my roots' (jump to 6.45 or so) - is that the vocal?

    Ah mate I WISH is was Templehead. We used to hammer that track. I'd even go so far as to say there's never been a track like it since. I listened to it early and it bought back so many memories, Impeccable production. Way ahead of it's time.....

    I am plagued with these tiny snippets of African choral samples...it doesn't help that I have been listening to African house all day too. :D
