Ah those Italians, masters of sampling they were. East Side Beat, a group of 3 Italian guys remixing Christopher Cross’ 1980 classic “Ride Like The Wind”, with Dave Seaman doing the remixing on the Factory version. The piano is classic Ital-house work, the vocals are integrated perfectly. In fact the only thing lacking is a decent percussion set since all thats used is a fairly anemic 4 beat and weedy high hat. Despite all that, the track was massive for years and for good reason – its an arms in the air, sing along classic.
