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.

Da Mongoloids - Spark Da Meth (Bangin' Like A Benzi Mix)
Strictly Rhythm 1996

Fine Young Canibals - The Flame (Armand's Ghostphunk Remix)
London - 1996

Daft Punk - Da Funk(Armand Van Helden's Ten Minutes Of Funk Remix)
Virgin - 1996

Armand Van Helden & The Horse - Ghetto House Groove
Maxi - 1998

Wamdue Project - Where Do We Go (Armand's Last Hustle In Paris Mix)
Strictly Rythm - 1998

Buy Armand Vinyl

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.

And this video for Hear My name is amazing.

Great post man. Thank you for taking the time to rip this stuff and share. That Daft Punk remix is timeless!

Yeah I agree with Morganix. Cheers for the ripping action. I remember those days when Armand turned all he touched to gold, but I had missed a few of these remixes along the way. Thanks again.
