'Coffee Pot (It's Time For the Percolator)' Cajmere

More commonly known today as simply 'Percolator' this track from 1992 has been reimagined by countless artists, including: Major Lazer, Eats Everything, Gant Man, Claude VonStroke and Derrick Carter (the list goes on).

Here (2:40), we have the Detroit crew getting down to the timeless original track with their very own version of the dance that accompanied it.

Other recognizable tracks in the speedy mix are Robotman's 'Do Da Doo' and Armando's '100% Dissing You'.

'Club Lonely' Lil Louis

Miss Thing: "My name is on the list."

Bouncer: "What list?"

Miss Thing: "The DJ's list."

Bouncer: "Miss Thing... there is no guest-list tonight!"

We've all been there. This party is full and the sounds of Lil Louis, the godfather of house music, inflate the room in this extraordinary clip from 1992.

Lil Louis' track 'Club Lonely' is followed up by Sir Mix-A-Lot's 'Baby Got Back' (Remix). A less obvious choice, but still great nonetheless.
