Armand Van Helden (I Heart Series pt. 3)
Armand has been making classic house records since the very early 90's. I mean, dude is responsible for more classic anthems than I wanna bother to list. In my opinion he really hit his groove in the mid to late nineties when he developped the sound that would ultimately become Speed Garage and was the go to guy for all the major remix's. There have been several compilations of his remix work from that time, but here's a few I had to rip because they weren't on any of em. Including his remix of Wamdue Project's "Where Do We Go?" which is my favorite of all for reasons you will soon hear. If you so desire.

You should also check out his new single Touch Your Toes on Southern Fried. The original is hot as fuck and it features a banging Stretch Armstrong remix.
