INFO > In 1995, Libra (Brian Transeau) and Taylor (Myles Glenn Wooten) collaborated on one-off single “Anomaly [Calling Your Name]”, issued through the Musicnow imprint. The track features vocals sampled from “The Prayer”, a B-side on Jan Johnston’s second single, “Paris.” The following year, Platipus licensed the track, gave it the remix treatment, and produced a hit, after which Jan Johnston went from unknown folk singer to in-demand dancefloor diva. Further remixes followed in 2000.

Remember (US CD)

01 Remember (Album Edit)
02 Remember (Mood II Swing Remix)
03 Remember (Sasha’s Remix)
04 Remember (BT Blue Memory Dub)
05 Remember (Paul van Dyk’s Recollected Remix)
06 Remember (Mood II Swing Dub)
07 Remember (Single Mix)
08 Love, Peace And Grease (BT’s Puma Fila Mix)

INFO > A single featuring Brian Transeau, Paul van Dyk, AND Sasha was a wet dream for epic house fans in the 1990s, and the addition of Mood II Swing mixes only sweetened the deal. The US issue of BT’s “Remember” conveniently consolidates most of the material from both UK singles; however, PvD’s ‘Totally Recalled Remix’ was dropped in favor of BT’s remix of “Love, Peace And Grease.”

INFO > Jan Johnston went from unknown folk singer to international dancefloor diva after Brian Transeau discovered one of her singles in the bargain bin of a Manchester record shop. BT sampled Johnston’s “The Prayer” for “Anomaly – Calling Your Name”; following the success of that single, Johnston’s vocals were sought after by many trance producers. Among them—Paul Oakenfold, who signed Johnston to Perfecto, where she recorded several singles and an unreleased album, “Emerging.” (anyone out there have a copy?)
