With X Factor after infecting the Christmas charts since it’s inception, the past couple of years has seen a surge in campaigns to get solid classics back into the charts and make it a level playing field again. Rage Against’ The Machine‘s Killing In The Name was the perfect example of how this could happen, clinching the Xmas No 1 a few years back.
One campaign that has taken off this year is to have Activ8 (Come with Me) by old school hero’s Altern8 claim the top spot. A full on rave classic, it orignally charted at number 3 back in November of ’91. It looks like it could very well make it as well, with the Facebook page topping over 25,000 likes and news articles galore supporting it.
To celebrate, the song has been reissued with a host of remixes by the likes of AGT Rave Cru, Shadow Dancer and Xen Mantra to make it real value for money. This is most definitely my pick for the No 1 spot and it would give me no greater pleasure than to be sitting down to Xmas dinner with my family and to hear that glorious synth and breaks blasting from my grandmothers radio.
You can pre-order from iTunes -each version counts towards the Xmas charts.
