One of the many delights off the Hercules & Love Affair Sidetracked compilation, Fax Yourself’s ‘Sunshine’ is a j-j-j-jackin’ New Beat/House record from 1989. Released on the influential New Beat label Sound of Belgium, this isn’t your archetypal New Beat record.

Featuring samples ranging from Rockers’ Revenge’s glorious ‘Walking On Sunshine’ to the The Clash’s ‘The Magnificent Dance’, the amalgamation of these influences with Detroit Techno and Chicago House, would lead to a newly coined genre – ’Eurojack’.

Fun and exhilarating, it reminds you just how good House music can be. As I mentioned earlier, this track can be found on the newish Hercules & Love Affair compilation on Renaissance.
