GOSPEL SOULFUL JAZZY HOUSE: DJ Oji & Una – We Lift Our Hands At The Sanctuary (Friday Night At The Sanctuary Mix)

Unmistakeable feel good vibes taking it right back to an era when house music was about its feeling. Pulling out classic feel good vibes like this for our up coming SPIRIT OF HOUSE parties we are getting together with our good mates OUR HOUSE.

Stay close as we will be taking over basements, parks, beaches and rooftops around Sydney and paying some serious homage to the REAL HOUSE sounds like this.


“Now I don’t see nothing wrong, singing happy song
At the spirit deep inside, like a feeling getting strong
And there’s no need for opression, we come in peace
All we ask is let the music set you free

Check your attitude at the door
Smell the essence burning, sprinkle powder on the floor
The night is young and full of possibilities
We got our shelter now we, we found our sanctuary

We lift our hands at the Sanctuary
People come to dance at the Sanctuary
Love is alive at the Sanctuary
I feel alive at the Sanctuary

Lift up our hands in the Sanctuary
Everybody dance in the Sanctuary
So hear our voice in the Sanctuary
We rejoice in the Sanctuary

Can you imagine a place where all that matters is the music
DJ plays and the party people lose it
Singing, screaming, dancing around
I like the soulful sound of the underground

No pressure, no fear
Nobody’s in your business cause nobody really cares
Everyone’s special and you should feel the same
Welcome to the Sanctuary (I’m so glad you came)

Brothers and sisters, we are at the crossroads
Either we move forward, or get left behind
We gotta keep on keeping on
House music will never die
I don’t think you heard it

A ‘Summer of Love’ warehouse classic originally released way back in 1989 & still as Deep and Soulful as electronic music will get, an absolute masterpiece of electronic music for mine.
