DJ Tommy Sandhu has long been associated with CB. He first appeared as the voiceover replacing “Our Graham” on Cilla’s ITV dating game show ‘Blind Date’. The DJ then produced the Liverpudlian’s first ever club hit and more recently contributed two crackin’ club tracks for her latest EMI album ‘Cilla All Mixed Up‘.
You may however be wondering who is this guy? Well, Sandhu is an established club DJ, music producer, TV presenter and now regular radio host on the BBC Radio Asian Network.
In 2002, Sandhu managed to coax CB back into the recording studio (at Ronnie Wood’s house) to re-record her 1960s pop hit ‘Step Inside Love’. Sandhu then remixed the song. 3,000 white labels of the underground dance track were later pressed under the name TS vs CB as a fun way to celebrate CB’s 60th birthday. To everyone’s “Surprise!, Surprise!” the 12″ became a #3 smash on the British club chart (Music Week).
The good news for CB fans is all the original 2002 remixes are finally to receive a commercial release. They are contained on what will be Cilla’s 38th UK single release entitled “Step Inside Love: Tommy Sandhu Remixes”. The 5-track single is due out worldwide on download on the 30 November 2009 and includes a sparkling new remix.
