Sorry you had gone through so much time, energy, and money just because someone in 2011 got drunk and decided to troll YouTube comments.

At least you came out with a pretty cool collection of vinyl goa.

I was reading an interview with Oakenfold from 1999 where he said he would get given DAT tapes in the club (particularly at Cream) by young, local producers, from which he'd cut his own acetates. Apparently that was the origin of Planet Heaven - Nautical Bodies. This track probably never made it past Oakenfold's own acetate, and those things don't survive many plays.

Iíve read similar over the years. It was a different world back then.

That is probably exactly what happened here I never even thought of that!

Lol

Anyway, big respect to you for not giving up! I think at this point the best chance would be for someone to recreate the tune as someone mentioned in this thread. Hell, it doesnt even have to be 100% faithful reconstruction. It might as well be a well intentioned remake that is true to the ethos & feeling of the original. This is a fancy way of saying that we definitely do not need a 'tropical house' remake.

Anyone up for it?

You can find the vocals from this video

This is True.

I was at the Gallery (Turnmills) 4th Birthday in 1998 and Tall Paul and Oakenfold both played that night. I watched some fan bop up to Tall Paul in the booth and give him an acetate. He gave it a listen and the a thumbs up, after which it went in Paul's bag.

I told the bloke congrats for getting your track in there and he was happy but was like "that was my only copy, I have to get another one made and not sure if I can". I was thinking you might have slaved over that for months and you'll never see it again.

Dats weren't that short lifespan (they were actually rated for 100 full volume plays) but the thing that killed them was not protecting them from magnets/EMI/RFI etc, and rewinding them too much. The problem is that people would throw them in the bottom of a bag and by the end of the gig they're fucked.

Acetates are a different matter. DJ's didn't do zero counterweight balance (for obvious reasons) or use precision needles so you'd be lucky to get 10 plays out of them before the dynamic range, treble and THD went to shit.

I kinda felt for him becuase I think it was a combo breaker but when even the DJ playing it can't be bothered, what's the point?


That would be me Tom . I'm still waiting for you to check to see if you have "nobody is going to save you now"
