Story

This track is the development of an original piece composed by Damian called "Show me House  All Night Long"... after some tinkering in the studio, we realised it was a great candidate for a homage piece as a mash-up type composition using the lyrics from a well known song on the dance circuit by Robin S, loved by many and loved by us... Thus was created "Show me (Love & House) All Night Long"... we hope you like this one as much as we do.. This we hope will become a 'bubbler' as will Dukes Lunar Loop "Saxo Carnival" Mix!
