    Thanks Paul for the introduction of a S.A.W. production I’m not at all familiar with. I’m looking forward to playing this to Karen’s and my ears as she was a big fan of these producer power-houses!! You really are incredible with the choice and selection of dance music discs. I get so PUMPED UP by what you display throughout the weeks. It blows my mind at the legacy you’re creating here on Burning The Ground. And oh, the Ish 12-inch is so splendid. I truly hope that people will look into this great record you posted and check out the album itself. So many musical discoveries you guide us through and to. You are freaking amazing and I love you so much. You make me feel like pink Champagne ready to pop its cork and froth all over the place. You are so effervescent Paul. It truly is the perfect party place and my dance-a-riffic destination!!

    Always popping my cork for your talents Paul!!

    This really is a fun synth-pop track i’m not sure why these boys didn’t go any further but two singles. They are another one of my favorites, I hope they become one of yours too 🙂

    Thank you Paul for this post. Never heard about this band. The remix sounds really good. I much prefer the early works of S.A.W.. One another great find for me!! I searched about this band on the web and found the other single “Contract of the heart”. This one sounds even better and I would love to find it in a future post.

    You’re welcome Daniel glad you like this band. The other single is coming tomorrow 🙂

    Absolutely brilliant Paul. Massively huge thanks for my request. Away on holiday for a few days, so Unable to download this until I get back. Such a shame the group didn’t make it big, they so deserved to be. Waiting with excitement until tomorrow when you upload “contract of the heart”. Will be back home on Sunday so can enjoy playing them then. These songs bring back such brilliant memories of my mates and I driving down to the beach in my orange Volkswagen beetle with this music blaring. Enormous gratitude for all the time, hard work and devotion you put into this awesome website and have a brilliant well deserved vacation matey.
    Gargantuan hugs from Blighty.
