Blockster – You Should Be… (Blockster Club Mix) (1998)

EDMclassics | 26 July, 2021

Blockster project involving Brandon Block (Blockster) and Ricky Morrison & Fran Sidoli (of M&S).

Brandon Block (born 26 November 1967) is a British club DJ. He has appeared on reality shows like Celebrity Come Dine with Me and Celebrity Big Brother. He is well known for appearing on stage heavily intoxicated at the 2000 BRIT Awards. Friends suggested that he had entered a musical contest and had won Best Musician of the Year, when in fact he had not even been nominated for the award. This resulted in a confrontation with award presenter Ronnie Wood and Thora Birch.

During detox, he was forced to take six months off from the DJ circuit in 1996. As his health improved the following year, so did his fortunes. In October 1997, he became a radio presenter alongside his old friend Alex P, presenting a show on Kiss 100. Later, he had three singles released under his Blockster alias – “Something Goin’ On”, “Grooveline” and “You Should Be..”, all of which were released by Ministry of Sound. “You Should Be…” was a remix of “You Should Be Dancing” by the Bee Gees, and reached number 3 in the UK Singles Chart in January 1999, and “Grooveline”, which sampled “The Groove Line” by Heatwave, reached number 18 in July 1999.
