D:Ream Re:Deemed (or not, as it turns out)

dreamunforgivenAnother bit of 90s dance dedicated to my jogging pals, this time from D:Ream, which though other people flitted around the sidelines, was essentially the nom-de-disque of one Peter Cunnah. Despite poppy numbers like “Shoot Me With Your Love” and the number one smash “Things Can Only Get Better”, he was just about able to cling onto some shred of club credibility thanks to some harder-edged remixes, such as those provided here by Leftfield (yes, them again).

D:ream’s debut album D:Ream On, Vol. 1 (clever wording, cheers) had a ridiculous number of singles lifted from it, partly because at the end of its initial singles campaign, a last-ditch reissue of “Things Can Only Get Better” became a massive hit, leading to the album being reissued in a new cover, and the launch of what was effectively a whole new promotional cycle. “Unforgiven” was one of the singles from the original campaign, achieving a readily-neglected no.29 chart placing.

While Cunnah tended to use the “D:reamix” name for his own remixes, it wasn’t until the second album and its lead single “Shoot Me With Your Love” that he hit upon the idea of flipping it around and having a “Re:Deamix”… too late, Pete, too late…

Release the pressure

release_the_pressure_1996Hi, sorry I haven’t posted in ages. While out jogging, my companions asked what sort of music I like, and I completely forgot that a good answer to this question would be, “well, I’ve got a blog called We Will Have Salad where I post music I like, you should check it out”. So it’s probably high time I got back to sharing some more bangin’ choons.

And on that note, here’s a classic single lifted from Leftfield‘s 1995 album Leftism. And shockingly used to advertise some processed cheese product a few years back. The tune may be processed, but it ain’t cheesy, unlike this sentence.
