Go back. Further. I mean way back. 1996. That’s it. Not quite back to the start, but close. Then genres were starting to define themselves a bit more from the “electronic/rave/techno” music they were all lumped together as. House music was alive and kicking. Sure, it’d been around for 15 years or more already, but back in the beginning “house” (or “warehouse) music was a loose term and you could shove a bunch of different sounds on its shelf.
This mixtape is a bit of all the different house styles back then. Funky. Acid. Even a little techy stuff. Some of the songs sound dated, but there are plenty of classics here. Maybe you’ve never heard the originals of some of your favorites? This is a great place to get smart. Enjoy!
