Fools Gold by The Stone Roses from 1989 is an absolute indie dance classic by al rights, but for me there are two remixes that are even better.
The one by Tall Paul I got to know because dj St-Dic (RIP) used to play it in his deep house sets at the upstairs room at Fuse. It’s a remix from 1995 and has a bit more of a beat, a house remix basically.

There is also a remix from Rabbit In The Moon that is mind blowing. Apparently it’s only on the 1999 re-release of Fools Gold, but it sounds like 1989 to me, Acid House all the way*.

* Acid House here refers to the British party scene of the late 1980’s that later became known as Rave. The music wasn’t strictly US Acid House, but all kinds of music also from Europe, that didn’t have the typical TB-303 acid sound.
