Circuit Anthems & Gay Pride Classics Volume 1

When I made my first Gay Anthems set in 2009, I posted a full write-up on what constitutes a “gay anthem” or “pride classic,” that’s worth a read. I won’t bother writing it up again but it’s there if you want to have a good laugh.

For the next four sets, I’ve flipped the narrative keeping my focus on “circuit anthems,” which for the most part touch on all the bases that lift the gay anthem narrative.

The songs are taken from the mid-millennium to present day with a few earlier choice cuts. I tried not to duplicate anything from my previous Pride Classics and Epic Circuit Anthems series but it is possible there may be some overlap.

A lot of the music represented here goes back to the days of Perfect Beat. I don’t how many of you remember them, but they were to defacto go to for club music CD maxis. They also tried to set up one of the first online download services. The business model just wasn’t there and they lacked the resources necessary to make it work before getting their skirt handed to them by Beatport, Juno, Traxsource and certainly iTunes. Having purchased a ton of music from their online store, I remember them fondly because there are a lot of songs over the next four sets that are taken from those discs.

I’ll be dropping part 2 tomorrow and will roll out three more next week before taking a break for the rest of the month. Then in July, we got the Summer Edition, Beach House and who knows what else might bounce out of my head.

It’s heating up outside and the weekend is almost here. Until tomorrow …ENJOY!
