Smoke signal please
Totally not it as it's a decade later but this popped into my head as a result of this thread. Thanks OP
Orinoco - Mama Konda maybe? Or something on the Leftfield / Guerilla Recs spectrum..
Am out atm, will have a dig later
It won't be this, but I'll post it anyway:
PEYOTE - Alcatraz - 1992:
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
epic track, thanks for reminding me!
/Sings this to herself repeatedly
Are you absolutely sure it's not Transglobal Underground Templehead? I NEED it to be that
ChristianB Are you really Favelado on an epic wind up?
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?
fuck, I know the tune now.
I might even have it somewhere.
fucked if I can remember who it was by though.
eta erm, or maybe I was thinking of that Dario G track that killer b posted, as I just listened to that and can't remember if that was what I was thinking of or not.
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.....
ahhhh man, what a track. The original Roots 12. Thanks so much for sharing. It's not the vocal unfortunately, but man there's some epic tunes being shared up here. Some needs to comission a compliation.
Chicane - saltwater?
Sing it please
Another one that it isn't
OMG...I think I know it...but not the name of the track!
Is it this?
Others will recognise this!
That's Dario G init?
You could at least compliment me on my singing/effort!
that's dario G posted up thread isn't it?
Good singing, though
LOL...see what I posted above.
Ah, I just did! But it wasn't in response to this ^^ I hadn't seen it
I knowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww now.
dario G has infected the thread
I know lovely. cheers.

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.
