I'll have to search my basement for this, but IIRC, the listing was different from the pressing. Also, I played this in 1987, before it became a hit, so the issue year here is wrong, unless I had a promo and didn't know it, as 1987 was my second year DJing for pay.

The Agoria Remix is increbible. The vocal-break in the middle could be a little bit shorter

Iraraeal
Indubitably the quintessential house track for any listener. It threw House music into a new era of creation and innovation. It brought chills in the 80s, 90s (especially 1997), and is still fresh almost 30 years later.

What the hell is up with the Peshay mix? sounds like he had a track lying around and just wacked some acapella bits over the top completely off tempo. I love most of Peshays releases but either he was feeling rather lazy or someone stitched him up with this one.

the "Kick the Pump Mix" by Derrick May (listed as May-Day) is almost like hearing him DJ live he hits the first synths multiple times like they are in a sampler pad. May then throws in some filter and the "ohh" sample from the vocals for a few min. The mix is aggressive and dramatic you know he's operating back there. Heavy use of delay effect and filters. At one point he stops it with a rub like he's got a finger on the vinyl (but then edits out the beat that he's behind). Really clever stuff, the full "we don't need a crowd" sample doesn't even show up until the 3 minute mark. It's a playful "re-edit" about 119 BPM, call it proto-deep house or slow techno either way move aside cause Derrick May is coming through...

Arakus
Magic Juan's Mix is great!! the other Remixes are also dance-floor bangers!

B2: the Classic Magic Juan Mix remake

Ustamya
Referring to the standard 1988 "Big Fun" releases -It appears that sometimes the mixes are titled differently; it's a bit confusing as to which mix is which...but according to the times/duration :Duane Bradley remix, 5:01Magic Juan remix, 6:13Main mix/Extended mix, 7:3912" remix by Master Reece, 7:09Mayday remix, 6:41I think the Magic Juan remix is the 6:13and the Main mix/Extended mix, which features Magic Juan on mixing duties, but is not his full remix, is the 7:39

Akta
Hi yep cool thanks.. It seems the only way to id it is via timing

Qumenalu
Anyway, in my opinion the Magic Juan Remix sucks. Can't help it...

Manemanu
What you are calling Main mix/Extended mix has no mix title on some releases, while other releases call it Remix or just Magic Juan Mix. This is not the same thing as the 6:13 Juan's Magic Remix.

Responsible for the Detroit Techno sounds emergency all over the World alongside Derrick May's "Strings Of Life", "Big Fun" by Inner City represented an undeniable groundbreaking of the large range top-quality dance music. In 1987, Kevin Saunderson was still in college, and used his free time to produce at his small studio, when he suddenly realized that he would be in need of a vocalist for one of his tracks. Through his friend Terry Baldwin, a Chicago house producer, we could meet Shanna Jackson, known as Paris Grey, and he realized that her vocals would match perfectly on the tune. The alliance between a Chicago house music vocalist and one of the most talented Detroit techno producers turned to be the Detroit music entrance door for an imaginable amount of people. Through their music, the Inner City could assemble in a unique sound the Soul influences, the futurism of Detroit Techno (very much alive on the way they used all those synthesizer timbres) and the House dancing grooves. Astonishing as it may be, Kevin Saunderson told his friend Mark Archer that the main synthesizer timbres on "Big Fun" were sampled from "Let's Get Brutal" (1986) by the New York project Nitro Deluxe. That doesn't take anything from "Big Fun"'s masterpiece, on the contrary; the secret lies on the way Kevin Saunderson, with the collaboration of the producers James Pennington A.K.A. Suburban Knight and Arthur Forrest on "Big Fun", used those timbres. "Big Fun" as Inner City was recorded in 1987, but it was the addition of Paris Grey's vocals to the ground breaking synths and beats that would bring an unparalleled ensemble. "Big Fun"'s lyrics and vocals brought the Soul to a Future Funk Electronic base, a Techno base - and through expressions such as "We don’t really need a crowd to have a party" the masses seduction were accomplished; the funk influence was there, through the groove, the beats and the quote "Just a funky beat and you to get it started" (baptized since then as an essential element to make a real good party). Any try to label Inner City's music is ill advised, despite being primarly considered Techno, since nobody in Chicago or anywhere else had the same employment of the synthesizers or percussion timbres. English music expert Neil Rushton is the one that deserves the credit for "Big Fun"'s Worldwide acclaim, for after its master tape was recorded, it remained forgotten during a few months until Neil had the chance to listen to it and finally include it on Virgin Records through Detroit Techno's primar & quintessential compilation "Techno - The New Dance Sound Of Detroit" (1988). Only after that, the singles were released and "Big Fun" became what we call a Worldwide smash. The original versions from Kevin Saunderson's KMS label are different and uncomparable to the terrible quality 2004 repress. Be warned.

Beware of the repress! None of the four versions is the same as on the original release of 1988 - Although it has (nearly) the same artwork, the same catalogue-number. The vocals are terrible on the reissue, and the beats/loops are out of clock! I don't know who committed this, but it's so far from the original that it definitely has nothing to do with the '88 original kms 015. You can see the difference - The original release has a lighter yellow - And the fake release a kind of handwritten-style typo ’Kevin Maurice Saunderson’ as seen on the picture above. The original release exists in two different pressings: One with the distribution comment on the lower surface of the label, one without.

Jairani
At first listen this can seem disappointing - the original is such a perfect song that the significantly different direction D Wynn takes "Big Fun" in can put the listener off slightly. But after repeated listens, and a few occasions where I've played it out to great effect, you realise what an amazing job he has done with it - essentially it's an extremely deep house dub of the original, with such perfect EQing and sound design that it only deserves to be played at maximum volume on a close-to-perfect sound system!
