Jaydee - Plastic Dreams

Jaydee is actually Robin Albers. He was born in 1958 in the Netherlands. He began his career as a DJ in 1978 at age 20. In 1984 Jan Steeman of AVRO Radio offered him a contract and started a long career on national radio. That same year he started the Dutch mixing championships which came many of the stars today (DJ Jean, DJ Gizmo, Michel de Hey and many others).

In 1991 he started his own dance club, Binnenplaats, but, because of the success of today's post, he could not be there all the time and the club closed in 1994. In 1992 he was the first DJ to perform in Moscow.

Today's post will always have it's place in history in the club scene. EVERYONE knows this tune. It all started in late 1992-Early 1993 and it has scene several yearly remakes, several bootlegs and several mashups. But this time, it's legit. It's the original "Plastic Dreams" that started it all. Can it get any more real than that? BTW it's the only time this song OFFICIALLY CHARTED and the only appearance from Jaydee on the charts
