iO – Claire

Originally released in 1994, Claire was one of the two releases that put Vienna on my musical map (the other one being this.) The Patrick Pulsinger/Erdem Tunakan production, based on a sample by João Donato, was accompanied by remixes by Stasis and Andrea Parker (!) and was released on James Lavelle’s Mo Wax imprint.

So, that was me reminiscing about the past and my first contact with what would now be called deep house. If you heard this for the first time and want to get your hands on this, the 12-inch is relatively easy to get and not expensive either.
