Paul Rutherford ‘Get Real’ 2013 Remixes out now on Selador Recordings

SEL004 ArtworkThe 1988 release ‘Get Real’ by Paul Rutherford ranks amongst the most seminal of acid house classics. Highlighted by many as a one of the very best of the genre, with the likes of Josh Wink, Christian Smith, Danny Howells and Paul Woolford all ranking it amongst their all time favourites, here at Selador we felt it high time to resurrect this gem and bring it to the attention of the new generation. Needless to say, we had some of the very best production talent in the world queueing up to offer their remixing services but in the end, it was Darren Emerson, Just Be Bushwacka & Pete Gooding that secured the honour and the results are nothing short of remarkable. From Darren’s monster new techno remake to Bushwacka’s faithful rolling techy tribute and Pete’s contemporary deep melodic anthem, every interpretation has been handled with the upmost love and care. Selador Recordings are proud to present Paul Rutherford’s ‘Get Real’ 2013 style. Miss this at your peril!

Renaissance 20th Anniversary Blog

For me, the arrival of Renaissance in 1992 signalled the start of the second phase of the acid house explosion. After the ‘Summers Of Love’ of ’88 & ’89 things had started to deteriorate as every Tom, Dick & Harry now thought they could put on a rave and the scene started to attract some unsavoury elements. Poorly organised events held purely in the interest of making money were fast becoming the norm and the dream was in danger of turning sour. Renaissance were really the first to try to take things to the next level bringing a certain style and panache to their parties with quality first and foremost on the agenda. They raised the bar and set a new standard by which all others would be judged. I remember sitting up ‘in the gods’ at their 2nd birthday at the Que Club in Birmingham looking down over the lavish production full of celestial cherubs emanating from fluffy cotton wool clouds above 2000+ clubbers all in their own little heavens. It was a sight to behold and one which finally made me realise that acid house meant business and was here to stay.

Renaissance were always in it for the long haul as this years 20th anniversary parties prove. Of course, there’s been a lot of water under the bridge since those early days. Times have changed. But one thing has always stayed true. From it’s original home at Venue 44 in Mansfield to the stately home events, the tours of Australasia to Pacha & Privilege in Ibiza, from the endless revered compilations to Media in Nottingham & The Cross in London…. Renaissance remains one of clubland’s most enduring & iconic brands. Happy 20th! Here’s to the next two decades :-)
