ARMAND VAN HELDEN : Hear My Name
We remember dancing to this song on our local dancefloor. It was a bit of a departure for Armand Van Helden, who always turned out great remixes, but his singles never really had the same spark as his production numbers did. Finally we get a great song, sung by a duo sadly never to be heard from again, and a song that encapsulated the dark, gritty underground of New York, but brought it a little bit closer to the mainstream. Today, it is commonplace for a dance artist or DJ to crossover, but a song to do that back then was almost unheard of. Granted, it did not have a huge success, but it was a great track and the video’s pretty awesome as well. Happy Birthday, Alan!!
