K-KLASS, best known for their remixes and DJ sets, are still as much in demand as ever on the white isle of Ibiza, performing their own electronic pumping tunes in the House music capital throughout the summer.

Founder member Russ Morgan says there is no urban myth shrouding House music, it is simply a style of music that makes people want to dance.

“It is rhythm for the soul,” he said. “It is about capturing the moment, the music that is right for that time and that sound system. Music is like a motor car it evolves, it is a different animal today.”

Following this year’s summer season in Ibiza, Russ will be heading for MECA in Regent Circus on Saturday, September 30 along with Brendan Block and Seb Fontaine. The House music superstars of the 1990s will be going back to retro land for a new night of clubbing tunes called Retrospective.

“We will be playing a wide and varied selection over that golden period of about 12 years of House music from the 1990s,” said Russ.

K-Klass, originally from Wales and now based in Manchester, are familiar with Swindon’s famous magic roundabout as they were regular DJ guests at the Brunel Rooms.

Along with performing as K-Klass, Russ and Paul Roberts run their own record label, Klass Action. Russ said: “It is an art form in itself looking for that breaking music.”

Their remixes became legendary, including the Bilingual album for the Pet Shop Boys and tracks for Candi Staton, Rosie Gaines, The Corrs, Kylie Minogue, Geri Halliwell and Bring It All Back by S Club 7. Their remix of Baby Come On Over by Samantha Mumba was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2002 in the Best Remix category.

“The remixes took off and we did not have time to write our own music. One highlight was Two Can Play At That Game, Bobby Brown’s original version was such a down tempo R and B track and he only gave us the vocals so we created the dance version. It was surreal but exciting and fun,” said Russ.

Originally the boys came up with the idea of K-Klass at the famous Hacienda night club in 1988 when they were watching a band.

“I hadn’t seen Paul for about 18 months and we got talking and decided to make some music. We got Andy Williams and Carl Thomas on board and rehearsed at Andy’s mum and dad’s house. We were all still kids. We made a four track EP and took it to Eastern Block on cassette and to our amazement - we did not even have a name for ourselves - they wanted to put it out,” said Russ.

Then Eastern Block put out what was to be the signature hit for K-Klass, Rhythm Is A Mystery, with Bobbi Depasois as lead singer. It went to number three in the UK charts.

“Alway Look On The Bright Side Of Life was number one, and there was 500 sales between us and Vic Reeves at number two,” said Russ.

“When Graeme Park dropped Rhythm Is A Mystery at the Hacienda it was one of those special moments and coincidently Vic Reeves was there that night.”

K-Klass have a couple of projects which they are keeping under wraps for now.

Russ said: “Back DJing on vinyl mean’t waiting at the record shop for the latest releases, looking for that record you break that no one else had. The irony now is that perception has changed and every one wants the old skool, familiar tracks.”
