INFO > Released in 1995, “Reach Up” is Paul Oakenfold and Steve Osborne’s take on “Papa’s Got A Brand New Pigbag”, the debut single of Pigbag. The original instrumental track was an underground dance hit in 1981; the Perfecto team maintains the funky horns and percussion, but adds their trademark trance sound to the mix. Oakey included Martin Freeland’s ‘Indian Summer Remix’ on his legendary “Goa Mix”, created for BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix in 1994.

INFO > Following the failure of The Human League’s 1990 album “Romantic?”, the band was unceremoniously dumped by longtime label Virgin. Remaining members Phil Oakey, Joanne Catherall, and Susan Sulley shopped demos around and attracted the interest of EastWest, which signed the League in 1994. Former Tears For Fears keyboardist Ian Stanley produced The Human League’s seventh LP “Octopus”, which spawned three successful singles. Romantic ballad “One Man In My Heart” was the album’s second single and the first from the band to feature a female lead vocal.
