In this post (http://www.dissensus.com/showpost.php?p=3717&postcount=15) I challenged the forum to name the breakbeat-and-sleighbell track I overheard at The Gap. No luck. *sigh*

In the last 24h I've become so obsessed with the idea of sleighbells in dance music that I'm expanding my request.

Name any dance track that includes sleighbells. I don't care if it's a hip hop tune about hash bars in Amsterdam or a gabba track spouting German protest chants; if it's got sleighbells, I want to know about it. I want to blow some minds at my Xmas bash this year.

Dissensions unite! Take back Christmas!

Common Sense - "Heidi Hoe" (i think) from "Can I Borrow a Dollar." From what I remember it was a pretty cool track with bells marred only by some pretty questionable lyrics. This was way before he met Erykah.

There is a ragga breakcore version of 'we wish you a merry xmas' which starts off with sleigh bells. There's also Bizzy B's 'Jingle Bell Rock' from 94 white label dub only... (true)

Merry X-mess is an entire six track ep, and simply one of the gabber records. All three tracks on side a has sleighbells. It also contain the best version of "Poing" I've ever heard.

There's also a gabber track called "Jingle Balls" somewhere, but I can't remember who made it, or if it has any sleighbells.

The most commonly used bells sample i know of in early 90s hip-hop was the Average White Band's "Schoolboy Crush," which was used on everything from "Microphone Fiend" to Nas' "Halftime."

i think i might have that somewhere - its on the b-side to one of those overpriced represses that hard to find sometimes do of old skool tracks.

having said all that, its fairly cringeworthy, just like that jungle version of "hey hey we're the monkees"! ;

Here <- (http://www.planet-mu.com/discog/ziq092/ziq092_rudi_the_techno_pioneer_hi.mp3) is the breakcore sleighbells track. They're only on the intro I think.
