Stumbled across this killer DJ mix via Mixcloud from Marc Johnson from few years ago. Label manager (from 2003-05) Marc goes through the legendary Tripoli Trax back catalogue pulling out some highlights for “A History Of Hard House Through The Eyes Of Tripoli Trax Vol.1” and doesn’t forget to squeeze in the Pete Wardman remix of Hooked along the way!
There’s a brand new 2021 house remix of the 99th Floor Elevators Toolbox House anthem ‘I’ll Be There’ available via Beatport now as part three of the labels Remix Works series. The reworking comes courtesy of Tech House DJ/producer Nomadic and gives a cheeky nod to previous remixes of the track from the legendary Tony De Vit and Per QX. Wait for the ravey piano drop just past the three minute mark!
The Tidy Boys remix of Hooked has been floating around for a few months now, debuting at last years TDV20 celebrations. Nicholsons anthemic 90s style trance update is set to join the Tidy Boys remix on a limited edition 12 inch vinyl pressing on the Tidy Boys latest imprint Hard-Drive, out later this month.
To commemorate Tony De Vit’s life 20 years after his passing the Tidy Boys commissioned remixes of some of his classic tracks for the ‘TDV20 Tony De Vit Remixes‘ album in a limited edition mix CD and USB (mixed and unmixed in WAV and MP3) formats. There are 14 new remixes, 13 of Tony’s classics and an added bonus of the 99th Floor Elevators ‘Hooked’ tweaked and remixed by the Tidy Boys.
TDV20: the official commemoration event for Tony De Vit, marking his 20 years memorial was held in July 2018, 2500 people attended in Birmingham and the DJ line-up was a veritable who’s who of hard house!
As for the Tidy Boys remix of ‘Hooked’ you can hear a clip in the short after movie from the #TDV20 event.
There’s been a remix of ‘Hooked’ in the pipeline from BK for a few months now but the wait is over as ‘Hooked’ gets a turbo-boost-hard house-raver of a remix (the BK Go Hard Remix to be precise!) from the Hard House Don just in time for the New Year!
UPDATE 2018. The BK Go Hard Remix of Hooked had been licensed for tons of compilation albums including The Hard House Awards, Frantic 16, The Weekender Has Landed, Future Hard Dance Classic, In An Ideal World, Fit2Club Workout Anthems, Extreme Cardio Vol:1 and many more!
Its been a while since I heard anything about one time Tony De Vit protégé DJ Fergie so imagine my surprise to find out he’s enjoying success in Las Vegas.
“With his most audacious move yet came a bold new sound and another chameleon-like reinvention to go with it. The three illustrious DJ residencies he now holds in America is unprecedented: at the iconic Wet Republic pool party, the HQ Nightclub in Atlantic City and from this Spring at the newly-opened Hakkasan Las Vegas Nightclub.”
Of course, the epic Tony de Vit version of Hooked takes a bow second track in!
