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.
