SONG OF THE DAY: Up Yours – “Tonight”
With so many of the big electro producers sampling ’90s techno, it was only a manner of time until house guys started sampling ’90s house as well. Listening to “Tonight” by Up Yours, you can almost play trainspotter (spot the sample.) Is that the bassline from Robin S “Show Me Love” or Nightcrawlers “Push the Feeling On?” Does that build-up remind you of E.G. Fullalove “Divas to the Dancefloor?” Where did they knick the vocal samples from? Seeing as this is on Southern Fried (Norman Cook /Fatboy Slim’s label), this could simply be an inside joke with them taking an old ’90s track from the vault and dusting it off for release. Fitting that vibe, the video reworks classic Soul Train line dance footage. For an even more retro take of the track, check out HiFi Sean’s remix which delightfully channels the essence of Stock, Aitken and Waterman.
