INFO > For their second effort as Grace, Paul Oakenfold and Steve Osborne covered Gavin Friday’s 1991 single, “I Want To Live.” The 1995 Perfecto release established Dominique Atkins as the project’s voice and face, and features mixes by Rollo & Sister Bliss, along with housey instrumental “Eureka.” That same year, model Naomi Campbell released her own version of “I Want To Live”, produced by Friday himself with Tim Simenon.

  1. I was very much into anything related to Faithless…especially Rollo and Sister Bliss mixes. This is one I only ever had on a mix CD a friend made for me of R&SB mixes. I likely have that CD packed away, yet. Let me know if you’re looking for something Faithless related, I may still have it. I kept some of my favorite UK CD Maxis that featured R&SB mixes, and mostly all of my Faithless CDs and Maxis. Thanks for the post!

    • Thanks LMNO. Actually, I’ve always wanted the 1996 Rollo & Sister Bliss mixes of “Love Is The Drug” by Roxy Music. And I shouldn’t have sold the 1995 remixes of Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love. Either or both of those would be great.

      • Oh, the irony. I never bought either of those singles, as my friend included a mix a piece on one of the mix CDs they made for me. Let me try an clear up what I was trying to say above. I still have a lot of Faithless CD Singles in my collection.

    • Ahh, thanks for clarifying. Faithless never did much for me – wasn’t quite the same vibe as Rollo solo or with Sister Bliss. I wouldn’t mind grabbing the two Rollo Goes… singles. Thanks again!

      • I’m going to see if I kept my old scans, as I cleaned them up. If I don’t have them, I’ll see what I can find on the net and include them in the files. I’ll try and get to them tonight, and will post them in the Share section.

        I actually just made 2 Rollo & Sister Bliss Mixes compilations, both with 8 tracks and just over an hour long each. I forgot one single, which was “What Hope Have I” by Sphinx. Also the R&SB Mix of the Skunk Anansie track is actually quite a bit longer (as I ripped the mixes to my computer)…coming in at 8min 26sec.

  2. Do you have any of the remixes of the Naomi Campbell Version by Chance ?

  3. thanks for posting this

    i had some sort of mix on tape – maybe an Oakenfold Essential Mix – with the Rollo and Sister Bliss mix. Not heard it in years. Brilliant.
