Golf Clap: 5 Classics from the Midwest Rave Scene
Cricco Castelli: Life Is Changing
Always heard this one in Chicago. Derrick Carter used to play this one all the time and had it on his Comic Disco mix. One of the best and most played piano tracks from the era. This song inspired a lot of other jazzy piano tracks that were popular at this time as well.
Cajmere ft Dajae: Brighter Days
One of the most well recognized vocals in all of House Music. People will be playing this song forever. Love the original just as much, but everybody seemed to play this one more. Cajmere is still just as relevant today as he was when this came out 25 years ago.
Alan Braxe & Fred Falke: Intro
Bryan: One of my all time favorite songs. I heard Stacy Kidd play it at a party and went up and freaked out asking what it was. He told me to take his copy because he had another one at home anyway. Still have that copy to this day.
Thomas Bangalter: Club Soda
This is the first release on Thomas’ label, “Roule.” Thomas is one half of Daft Punk, but this was before they released their debut album Homework. Lots of big hits came out on this label including Stardust’s “Music Sounds Better With You.”
Gene Farris: Visions of the Future (Roy Davis Jr & DJ Skull Remix)
Classic tune by Gene Farris here. Always used to listen to this on repeat on DJ Dan’s Beats For Freaks mix. This one still sounds really fresh. Good vibes record. Might even play it this weekend.
