Nightcrawlers – Push The Feeling On (The Dub of Doom) (1992)

EDMclassics | 26 June, 2021

Nightcrawlers is a British house music project from Glasgow, Scotland, assembled by producer, DJ and vocalist John Reid (born 6 September 1963).

The original version of “Push The Feeling On”, released in 1992, was not a house song and was more disco and acid jazz-influenced, and was a minor chart hit in the UK.

The song was later remixed extensively by Marc Kinchen, creating a series of additional remixes for the song. One remix known as “Push the Feeling On (MK Dub Revisited Edit)” became an international chart hit in 1995, reaching the top 10 in various European countries, including the UK, where it peaked at number 3. In the wake of its success, the band deleted the original version from their catalogue, reclassified the remix as the first single from their debut album, Lets Push It (1995) and changed their genre to house music.

Despite the Nightcrawlers’ Scottish origin, the song was actually less popular in Scotland than in the UK as a whole (and many worldwide markets), only peaking at number 11; mainly due to the more subtle and low-key style of the track, which differentiated it from the dance music popular in Scotland at the time such as bouncy techno. On the Eurochart Hot 100, “Push the Feeling On (MK Dub Revisited Edit)” reached number 5.
