Peter Heller – Big Love

Pete Heller - BIG LOVEPete Heller - BIG LOVE - LabelLabel: Junior London – ESX4
Format: Vinyl 12″, 331/3 RPM
Country: UK
Genre: Electronic
Style: House Deep

The British DJ Pete Heller produced, for the pleasure of the house lovers, this gem in 1999. “Big Love” quickly became one of the hymns in the last summer of the past millennium on the island of Ibiza, and from there a global hit in house clubs around the world. The track contains samples from the disco funk song from 1979 “Wear it Out” by Stargard (including a characteristic vocal sample that sings “Understanding my loving”). It is fundamental in the concept of the production, giving to the track its good vibes and summer feelings. On the other hand, the progression of “Big Love” is brilliant, starting with just a kick and a hi-hat and the intuition of what is yet to come, and gradually adding sweet sounds by fresh pads and organs, as well as breakdowns that work perfectly in the right moments.
