90s Classic House Music Volume 2: Push the Feeling On

If our last rendezvous into the dynamic world of the ’90s was a dance through the pulsating rhythms that shaped an epoch, consider this the encore the DJ spins just when you thought the night was over. Just as the dawn of the World Wide Web connected us in unforeseen ways, 90s Classic House Music served as a communal thread, stitching together diverse experiences in the tapestry of a transformative decade. In this next installment, we delve deeper into the tracks that didn’t just make us move, but moved us—emotionally and culturally.

Black Box – Ride On Time (Massive Mix)

Kicking off with a track that holds its own name in the annals of house history, Black Box’s “Ride On Time” became the UK’s best-selling single of 1989. If you remember flipping through TV channels and stumbling upon the fall of the Berlin Wall, there’s a good chance this Massive Mix was pulsating through nightclubs, offering an uncanny blend of freedom and euphoria. It was not without controversy as it sampled the vocals of Loleatta Holloway who later sued the label over copyright infringement which was ultimately settled out of court and included the addition of her name as the vocalist on future album pressings.

Lonnie Gordon – Happenin’ All Over Again (PWL Original Extended Mix)

As the world stepped into the 1990s, Lonnie Gordon’s “Happenin’ All Over Again” hit the charts. Released in the same year Nelson Mandela was freed, this song captured a vibe of optimism. It was a second chance, not just for Mandela, but for everyone on the dance floor to start anew.

Annie Lennox – Walking On Broken Glass (David Morales Mix)

When Annie Lennox released “Walking On Broken Glass,” it was 1992, and the U.S. presidential baton was handed from Bush to Clinton. David Morales offered a remix that took this emotionally rich track and imbued it with a house vibe, turning heartbreak into something you could dance to.

Ce Ce Peniston – Finally (12” Choice Mix)

“Finally,” by Ce Ce Peniston, was the anthem of 1991, ringing in the new decade with the official end of apartheid in South Africa. Its 12” Choice Mix transformed the track into an iconic house number, capturing a fleeting moment in time when it felt like anything was possible.

Crystal Waters – 100% Pure Love (Original 12” Mix)

By 1994, the world had just witnessed the signing of the Oslo Accords, a peace agreement between Israel and Palestine. During this period of potential tranquility, Crystal Waters’ “100% Pure Love” provided a melodic backdrop that mirrored the era’s cautious optimism.

Nightcrawlers – Push The Feeling On (The Dub Of Doom)

Let’s not forget about 1995 when Nightcrawlers dropped “Push The Feeling On.” It was the year eBay was founded, transforming how we buy and sell things forever. The Dub Of Doom remix kept the dance floors packed, just as eBay enticed its first users to click “bid.”

Inner City – Big Fun (Original 12” Mix)

As the 1988 neared its close, Inner City’s “Big Fun” became a staple in the club scene. Released amidst the euphoria of the fall of the Berlin Wall, its Original 12” Mix encapsulated the essence of a generation intent on tearing down barriers, both literal and metaphorical.

TLC – Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg (Ben Liebrand Club Mix)

By the time TLC released “Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg,” the grunge era was in full swing and America was engrossed in the O.J. Simpson trial. The Ben Liebrand Club Mix took the hip-hop track about begging for sex and flipped it into party House Music track that packed the dancefloor.

Each of these tracks were more than just music. They were emblematic of their time, capturing the societal transitions and political landscapes that framed the 1990s. They provide an aural snapshot of a bygone era, each remix a layer of complexity to an already transformative period. In their beats and rhythms, we find the DNA of 90s Classic House Music—a language everyone spoke but no one needed to translate.

Until the next time…ENJOY!
