Jago – I'm Going to go (Frankie Knuckles Remix) 1985

Does anyone remember that  Italian Dance compilation called The House Sound of Europe, I was listening through it again yesterday with fresh ears having not heard it any ages, and was suprised I never noticed it had this amazing italo disco tune on it by an artist called Jago. As soon as it came on the bassline hook was so familiar that I am sure it has been sampled on dozens of house tracks since its original release in 1983. After a small amount of research I came across a 1985 Frankie Knuckles release of this tune (which actually sounds the same as the version on the above said compilation). Have a listen to this, for many of the greying population it will bring back memories of the early 80′s, more for later ravers I am sure you will recoginise the so familiar sounds. So to all the spotters out there, what other tunes do you know that has sampled this superb tune.

    I just realised I never even knew the name of this one. I’ve been trying to work out where I would have first heard it. It might have been Joy or Kaos at the Warehouse in Leeds, who knows?

    Glad you like the blog. It’s a bit punk rock in places but I’d like to write about more dancey stuff – lots of tales to tell – but it’s a question of finding the right records. I’m going to start uploading a few Dream FM tapes (I have millions) so maybe that’ll be the way to do it.

    Damn! Listening to this tune again and I can’t get over how great it is. Cheers!

    I look forward to hearing your Dream FM tapes……….and the Punk stuff is great too……nice to have musical variation, otherwise life would be so boring.

    And yep, this Jago tune is addictive music……amazing tune.
