I finally got my grubby hands on the official remixes of Free, Gay & Happy by the Coming Out Crew featuring the fabulous Sabrina Johnston. I had always used a remake by Verde but nothing is better than the real deal. The release has the original mixes and some newer updated versions but I went with my favorite by T-empo.
My goal in bringing back these classics, even after having revisited them years ago was to present them in a newer light, remastered and in some cases with newer modern versions of the originals. I was also able to drop several goodies that had never made it on any of my previous gay anthem sets. While these five sets are far from exhaustive, they are definitely a good representation of what a true Gay Anthem represents.
When you go back and dig through everything I’ve posted (and there is a lot) and then combine it with Year In Dance (which goes as far back as 1996) or several of the sets from the House Classics, you’ll find decades and decades of classic house, circuit, and trance that lifted us up, made us happy, angry and sad but mostly unified us as a community. I’ll likely have more to say on that matter in my final thoughts on all the things the LGBTQ community has achieved, where we’re heading, and the certain struggles that lie ahead.
For now, I want everyone to let down your guard, show us your True Colors and dance like today is your last day on earth! ENJOY!
