Swing 52 – The Joy You Bring

Before the Soulful House was called soulful house, it was called “Garage”. In the early to mid nineties, Tony Humphries was resident at the Ministry of Sound in London, Masters at Work and Frankie Knuckles were permanent fixtures, and this is one of the tracks you would hear in the Ministry of Sound in the main room.

Trance killed garage music to an extent, as the new generation that came after the Acid House generation did not really care as much about the history of the music, so a DJ Tiesto, Paul Van Dyk or David Guetta fan would be disgusted if they went to listen to Frankie Knuckles and he played a record like this. I could scarcely believe what happened to house and garage music towards the end of the nineties, as records like this by producers like Benji Candelario were what made clubs like Hard Times in Leeds special.

Like the other Gospel tracks posted earlier, the words and chorus are one that believers  and non-believers alike will all sing along to.
