Part 7 of 7 The House Sounds of 1990 - Part of a wider set of DJ mixes looking at the House Sounds of the late 80's and early 90's

A long journey to get to the end of the 1990 set of mixes, what with Covid-19 and having a full-time job it is hard to get the time to do these mixes, however you find time when you love the music don't you. 1990 was such a special year, great clubs and music and made some great friends.
This final mix is a long one (some 50 tunes long!) and full of some hard beats, squelchy analog sounds and emerging breakbeat tunes that would go on to develop into hardcore, jungle and drum'n'bass. In addition the output of Belgian R&S records also features heavily in this mix. It would be wrong to not mention the influence of Warp records in 1990 with tracks like LFO and Tricky Disco taking techno music to a new set of people, the emergence of Europe as the sound of techno was transformed in 1990, but Detroit still had a few tricks up their sleeves, the emergence of Carl Craig as a producer and Suburban Knight's 'Art of Stalking' has been a track i've played consistently for the last 30 years.
Noteable mentions must go to Ron Trent - 'Altered States' is a genuine all DJ classic (and he was 17 years old), hat off to Frank De Wulf - Grade A level output. What a great time I have had recording these mixes - long live house!
