For such a ubiquitous label in house DJs' crates, with so many releases over a short period of time, I've heard plenty of good house music from them, but very little great house. Can someone point me to any essential 12"s that have aged well and rise above DJ tools status?

    So many good records on that label bitd but reminds me that i really really need to dig out all my old house from whatever box they're stashed away in so I can get my hands on the Blue Cocteau EP that was released on that label at the end of the nineties. b,121b,121I'd pretty much stopped listening to house by then but was in my local record shop at the time flicking through new releases and had to stop to ask what they were playing over the speakers and buy it on the spot. Remember it being extremely deep house over the four tracks. Doesn't seem to be an mp3 of all of it floating around so think I'll have to dig it out myself to revisit and no doubt be disappointed.
