Retro Saturday: P.M. Dawn

As regular readers will know, a random thought will always lead to a Retro Saturday post.

And so it was this week that somewhere along the way I heard a clip of P.M. Dawn's "Set Adrift On Memory Bliss" which of course was based around that memorable sample of Spandau Ballet's "True".

"Set Adrift..." reached no. 3 in the UK chart in 1991 and still sounds incredibly fresh today:

In 1992, which was for various reasons a pretty incredible and memorable year both for musical and personal reasons, I loved "Reality Used To Be A Friend Of Mine" (that lyric was already mentioned in "Set Adrift...") and was particularly partial to the CJ McIntosh club mix which someone has very kindly posted at
