News - Milk & Sugar Remix Simon Harris

First out in 1988 on Pete Tong’s Polygram label FFRR, the original was a Billboard Number 1 for UK acid house legend and Grammy award winner Simon Harris, who wrote and produced the track with Professor Griff from Public Enemy.
Now 27 years later Milk & Sugar have pulled the track out of oblivion to return it to dancefloors for 2015. Adding their signature style to the Harris hit, the duo keep Chuck D’s original vocal, maintaining the retro vibe with help from a Roland ́s classic 808 drum machine but add slinky, staggered house beats and a big bouncy bassline.

The duo are also keeping the 80’s vibes flowing by re-using the original video, albeit with a new edit – a classic look back into 80’s hip hop history.
Working together for over a decade, Milk & Sugar have enjoyed success as DJ's, producers and label owners and are now excited to collaborate with Simon Harris. Harris became famous in the early 80s as a producer and DJ with his unique approach to merge Hip-Hop and house music. As founder of the Hip-Hop label “Music Of Life” and creator of “Beats, Breaks And Scratches”, a series of scratch-vinyls for DJ ́s, he was one of the driving personalities of the emerging DJ culture of the late 80s and early 90s.
