Playhouse Classics Part 1

I am almost certain Beatport has recently added a lot of older Playhouse releases which it didn’t have before. Either that or I am wrong, which seems highly unlikely as this has never actually happened (apart from once in 1991, I incorrectly guessed a “Countdown conundrum”, suggesting an elaborate Irish swear word which was not […]

Chart-May 2009

1. Oleg Poliakov-Rainy Dayz (Portable Mix) (Circus Company) On this release Portable takes one of Oleg Poliakov’s original tracks for the thriving Circus Company and makes the “Dayz” even rainier.
