Hmmm... right direction...but I'm thinking Kat Mandu did a remix or cover of it. The below by 'Lectric Funk may have been earlier and the original. The Spotify version has a late '80s pop-disco feeling to it. The 'Lectric Funk version has a more raw Italo-dico feeling (that baseline).

As for the timeline, it makes sense as T&E were regularly playing Kat Mandu's The Break around the time as  heard on the Breezeblock and again on the 2001 NYE set around CWU release (speaking of...still trying to find that Roland Louis Latin Percussion on vinyl from that set, true "Tropical House"). Both were on the Unidisc label in Canada. I could see T&E digging into the Unidisc back catalogue at the time.



The crazy part is that this was the soundtrack to a 'so bad it's good' sex comedy called gas pump girls in 1979.

That would have blown my mind. If I had a mind.

Nice find Rynostar! You’re probably right, that source would make more sense. Also now I have a new movie to watch!

anyone ever noticed that the cymbol crash at the end of leave home (sans birds chirping) is in a majority of songs pre-push the button.

Stereo MC's - Creation. At the very end of the song.

Great spot. I remember that song but must admit I never paid close attention to that final beat.
Stereo MC's biggest hit was Connected and it used to get used in a lot of adverts. I remember Carphone Warehouse in particular using Connected for aaaages in both their TV and radio advertising and I got so sick of it - and consequently the Stereo MC's themselves -  that I would go out of my way to avoid them. Always thought the lead vocalist looked like he would steal your wallet to buy drugs. I did however like the Paul Daley (ex-Leftfield) remix of Paradise in 2005.

Hey bedroom producers and remixers, how would you like stems for... Beethoven. Yes that one; Ludwig van.
Well now you can have 'em courtesy of the BBC orchestra and high brow BBC Radio 3. It's Beethoven's 5th to be exact. Personally I get more excited by his 9th (previously sampled hy U2 IIRC) but No.5 is pretty iconic too.

Krafty Kuts has already had a go. His take on Ludwig has been played on 6 Music. I'm struggling to post a link but I imagine if you search 6 music for Shaun Keavney's 16th Nov show you'll find it.

EDIT
Sigie Sigue Sputnik's sample of Beethoven's 9th (circa 2.33) is also worth a mention. A Clockwork Orange and Blade Runner sampled in this track too.
